Blurb from Goodreads:
Kit Colbana is always biting off more than she can chew. She has a knack for finding trouble. This time, though, trouble finds her. Someone from her past drops a case into her lap that she just can’t refuse…literally.
People on the Council are dying left and right and she’s been requested to investigate the deaths. The number one suspect? Her lover, Damon. If she doesn’t clear his name, he gets a death sentence. Even if she succeeds? They still might try to execute him. Oh, and she’s not allowed to tell him about the case, either.
The stakes are high this time around, higher than they’ve ever been. Kit may be forced to pay the ultimate price to save her lover’s life…a price that could destroy her and everything she loves.
Why am I waiting on it?
1) The Characters - Kit Colbana is half human half Aneira and all bad-ass, she's a warrior at heart despite what her family may believe, and she has a magic sword, no seriously...it just appears out of thin air. A PI with a horrific past at the hands of her family, Kit is an awesome character and I can't wait to find out more about her. As for her lover Damon, well he's a shape-shifter...a highly unstable alpha shapeshifter. As much as I thought he was a complete b*stard for most of book 1, I did actually warm to him...when he was no longer half strangling Kit anyway. Can't wait to see where life has taken these two now :)
2) The excerpts - I LOVED the excerpt provided at the end of Blade Song, I actually kept trying to make more pages on my kindle in the hope more would magically appear...sadly it didn't work ;) I have found another one on J.C. Daniels' website HERE so go check it out!
3) Mad world-building skills - I can't say it often enough but the world J.C. Daniels has created is just awesome, I mean in BLADE SONG, we had a sociopathic alpha of the cat shape-shifters, a group who were hunting magically inclined children for sport as well as witches, huge wolf bouncers, and a bar you get a headache going into :) I can't wait to see what she comes up with for this one!
4) The blurb - damn it sounds interesting...I can't see how Kit will be able to hide her investigation from Damon, plus I'm half hoping that we get to see Kit's Aneira family, purely because I think she and Damon could kick their asses...and believe me, it needs doing!
5) I can't wait much longer - seriously, the stress may kill me before I can even get my hands on a copy of this!!
Alright folks, that's me done for the day! I'm going to be posting my review of BLADE SONG on Thursday so if NIGHT BLADE sounds like a book for you then be sure to check it out!
Vikki over and out!
