My Initial Thoughs: J.C. Daniels left me with my heart in my hand!
NIGHT BLADE continues the story of Kit Colbana who can’t seem to stay out of trouble! When various Council members are murdered, a face from the past comes back to Kit, requesting her help with the investigation. Her relationship with the Alpha Damon is going strong and business is good, until now. Kit wants nothing to do with her ex-lover Justin but when he names Damon, her new love as the number one suspect, she’s forced to work with him in order to save the man she loves from a death sentence.
Kit Colbana became an instant favorite heroine of mine in Blade Song and continues impressing me with this installment. She’s not one of those perfect heroines with extraordinary supernatural abilities but can still hold her own with the Mercy Thompsons and Gin Blancos of the world. Kit is no stranger to pain and suffering but I really wanted to just give her a hug while reading NIGHT BLADE. She’s just trying to find happiness and the second it’s in her grasp it’s gone.
Even though she’s not a shifter, Kit definitely has nine lives. She faces rejection from Damon’s pack, is attacked by werewolves, takes on a vengeful witch and is captured by an old vampire enemy. All through this her number one priority is to save the man she loves…you gotta love her for that. To make things worse, Kit learns the person who’s made her suffer the most, her grandmother, is intent on finding and killing her, the girl can’t catch a break!
NIGHT BLADE is another action packed installment to the Colbana Files that keeps you on the edge of your seat. J.C. Daniels isn’t afraid to make her heroines suffer and rip the hearts out of her readers! The stakes are higher for Kit this time around and I can’t help but root for her more than ever after the emotional roller coaster she gave me. I still need a day or two to recover from this ending…
