Kat Redding is a vampire and werewolf hunter. She and her brother Thomas hunted down rogues, killed them and lived to do it again. Until one night, they were captured. Thomas’s fate was terrible and Kat was turned into one of the things she hated most, a vampire. After a time, she managed to break free killing everyone in the Valentino Vampire House, but saving one man, a Pureblood named Ethan, one of the humans the vampires fed on. Grateful beyond words, he stayed with her, helping her in any way he could while she continued to hunt and kill those that needed hunted and killed. The last thing you wanted was Lady Death to come calling.
To Walk the Night begins several years after Kat escapes House Valentino. The Luna Cult, a group of Purebloods (humans) who worship werewolves, has a problem, a big problem, and the only solution is to ask Kat for help, so they send a messenger with the address for their Den. Kat doesn’t trust the Cult because they worship the monsters, werewolves, but she’s too curious not to see what they want. You know what they say about curiosity, right? Her name may be Kat, but it’s a good thing she’s a vampire.
This was a great first book in a new series. The writing was smooth, the plot intriguing, the story fascinating, the characters interesting. I’m reminded of the first time I read Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton. Both are similar stories, yet not. In either case, I couldn’t put them down.
An awesome read! I very much look forward to Book 2, Tainted Night, Tainted Blood coming 3 July 2012.
