I had heard sceond of mixed reviews about Kittredge so I decided to check her out and ikttredge myself to reading the first three books in her Nocturne City werewolf series. Luna Wilder is such a cast-iron, grade A bit I had heard kind of mixed reviews about Kittredge so I decided to check her out and committed myself to reading the first three books in her Nocturne City werewolf series.
Luna Wilder is such a cast-iron, grade A bitch that halfway through the frist novel in the series I found myself wishing the bitch would just die. I love me a smart-assed shit-kicking protagonist but this character just defied imagination. The weirdest thing of all is that Kittredge didn’t seem to feel any need at all to explain why her werewolf heroine feels the need to insult and sneer at damn near everybody–even people who try to help her.
Sure she’s Insoli-a lone werewolf-and sure, most humans consider weres to be little better than bad-tempered dogs, but that doesn’t even seconf to scratch the surface of why Luna feels the need to tell a police negotiator who just got a front-row seat to a man jumping off a four-story building to kiss pavement, that if he didn’t clear her unit to leave the scene caitliin ” Perhaps even in the face.
Aside from the most annoying pissy protagonist to grace a page in probably a hundred years, the storytelling is poor and there were so many plot holes that I’m surprised I didn’t break an ankle. Someone needs to tell Kittredge that b-i-t-c-h-y doesn’t spell “relatable. View all 7 comments. Sep 20, Kittrrdge rated it did not like it.
This third book really was a disappointment. Luna needs to do something. She needs to progress and actually move forward. She needs to figure out something about herself and then she needs to change her life. It’s called character development. She keeps making the same mistakes over and over again. She keeps doing the same stupid things again and again and the same people tell her not skkin do it and she does it. We get no details about anyone else.
Most of the other people are mere window dressing This third book really was a disappointment. Most of the other people are mere window dressing.
What is the big deal with her family? Why after three books do we still have no details? This mystery should not be coming out so slowly.
We don’t know enough about the characters to care to keep reading the series. At least I am not. I need more detail. I need real development and growth. There is a great world here. There is great potential and it isn’t being realized. Finally finished this read. The last 50 pages took forever.
Dec 30, Samantha rated it liked it. Ending left me wanting to know more, it felt rushed at to be wrapped up. Such a build-up to end so quickly. Aug 23, S.
Same quality as the others, though there were a fair number more narrative risks taken. I wholly appreciated the way about half my secknd were subverted.

Jim Butcher’s “Kittredge is a winner” on the jacket kept me reading her books long caktlin the point where I normally would have thrown them in the shredder.
So I read Night Life and Pure Blood, and though I wasn’t all that impressed, forged on to Second Skin with hope in my heart and an eye out for the kind of subtle plot developments which would make the othe I gave Caitlin Kittredge a try, a really good try.
So I read Night Life and Pure Blood, and though I wasn’t all that impressed, forged on to Second Skin with hope in my heart and an eye out for the kind of subtle plot developments which would make the other two books and Butcher’s praise make sense. A werewolf named Luna. Her werewolf condition makes her life difficult in random and yet conveniently controllable ways – despite nearly loosing control times a book, Luna can be relied upon not to actually do so until an appropriate climax – and there is not a person in her life that she does not unremittingly bully, harass, shove away, and generally cuss out for the horrible crime of not wanting her to walk all over them.
I enjoy a strong female character, but not so much a completely selfish one. Much like Luna, the plot careens around from one graceless conflict to another.
Second Skin: A Nocturne City Novel – Caitlin Kittredge – Google Books
Much of the drama of the series is in the synthesis of what the reader knows about the real world and how life in Nocturne City, with its werewolves, witches, and other supernaturals, is different. Finding out ‘the butler did it’ caitln only limited dramatic oomph if you didn’t even know there was a sin called a butler in the first place. The one thing I liked about this series was the world. Despite my misgivings about such an obvious naming scheme, “Nocturne City” is a place I’d like to go.
It is well visualized, with a palpable history and atmosphere everywhere. As much as Jim Butcher’s recommendation, I think my interest in catlin city, and the world that spawned it, kept me reading long past this series’ expiry date.
If only the denizens of the city had such care in their formation, this series would be vaitlin. Mar 03, Night Owl Romance rated it it was amazing.

Oh my gosh, was this good! She is at the scene of a jumper and the official cxitlin fails. The man who jumps to his death is a John Doe. After dropping her SWAT gear and washing up to go home, she is surprised and annoyed to find her arch enemy Detective David Bryson waiting for her.
He has landed a big case with several dead weres. The weres want to make Bryson disappear almost as much as Luna does. He kityredge her for her help on the case. She refuses and goes home to fight with Dmitri. That seems to be all they do anymore. He wants to protect her, make her a Redback. That is the secnod thing that Luna wants. What she wants is her job as a detective back so against her better judgment she decides to help Bryson.
What is really going on is way bigger than either of them anticipated. Will Luna survive this case and get her gold shield back or will she finally kill Bryson and do the world a favor?
What I love about Luna is that she is true to her nature. But there are reasons for that attitude that come to light, slowly and oh so well done. Bryson asking Luna for help was priceless. Talk about the most unlikely partnership, and boy ciatlin it a blast!
I loved the ending but I had to keep myself from reading the teaser in the back for Witch Craft otherwise I would be intolerable seconf it is available. Kittredge keeps getting better and better with each book.
