Pure Blood by Caitlin Kittredge

Book Review: 1 Treasure Box

Second Book in Nocturne City Series by Caitlin Kittredge.

I thought the book was interesting, and there were some interesting scenes, I particularly liked the part when Dimitri first comes back into Luna’s life. The events that lead up to this were certainly very exciting.  I read this book first and found that Pure Blood was much better than book one, particularly since the cousin Sunny is almost absent in this book.

It is about a female “made” (not born) werewolf police detective who operates without a pack (she is a lone wolf.)  The story takes place several months after book one and Luna is on another case, but this time she has a new partner and a new boss, a boss who hates her. At times Luna did not act as a police detective would act, in that she did some really stupid things, like taking the only good piece of evidence to confront the culprit, without any form of protecting that evidence or even telling anyone about it.  I also enjoyed Luna’s development as she discovers her new abilities.

I liked how the book is a complete story and comes to a full conclusion at the end. The story was a bit predictable and cliche, but it was still entertaining, I am still debating whether I should read the next book in the series or not….

  1. For me, this book was just average compared to other paranormal fantasy books including Kittredge’s Black London series. To be fair, I did not read book one first so this may have had some impact on my opinion but normally, if I really like a book, I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. The whole “butting heads” with the new captain seemed pretty cliche as did being saddled with a partner Luna disliked from the get-go. I did not warm up to any of the secondary characters and felt the lead characters were not compelling enough to care what happens to them next. Plus, I like a bit of humour in my books and felt that any attempt in this book fell flat. I’m still a fan of Caitlin Kittredge but doubt I’ll continue on with this series – unless I’m bored and someone lends me the book :).
