Life and Luna's disposition haven't gotten any sweeter in the new Nocturne installment. Luna's need for control and self-reliance ensure that she butts heads with authority. But her quest for justice is just as strong, which makes this novel a nonstop thriller laced with a ferociously deadly menace. Count on Kittredge's heroine to never say die!

As a result of the fallout from her last homicide case, Insoli werewolf and police officer Luna Wilder has transferred over to SWAT. She's dragged back into a murder investigation when Detective David Bryson begs for help on a strange case. The four victims were all weres, and the killings look like executions, but when Luna starts to dig, she finds a link to the Wendigo, a legendary band of shapeshifters who drink blood. When Luna and the medical examiner are attacked by the victims as they morph into some new vicious creature, Luna knows she has a crisis on her hands. An invisible enemy is gaining strength. (ST.
