Book Info

Released: August 28th 2012
Series: Black London #5
Pages: 304
Format: ARC

The Black, the magical undercurrent that blankets the world, is fracturing a foreboding sign of things to come, but possible apocalypse or not Pete has to feed her baby daughter Lily and Jack the love of her life and bane of her existence so hanging around a graveyard at night to look for a murderous ghost is business as usual. That is until dead men in black robes hand her an invitation for a meet with the deadly and very exclusive secret Prometheus club, their message: Attend or Die.This is another fast paced and action packed book in the Black London series, full of zombies and creepy demon children it kept me enthrall led to the very end. One of the aspects I love about this series is Ms Kittredge’s writing, she manages to create a grim almost hopeless atmosphere, with Pete and Jack as the perpetual underdogs (and as a Brit, I love an underdog!) but still keep a vein of foul mouthed humour through out so it doesn’t become too depressing.

This book further develops the theme of really-bad-things-still-to-come as the Morrigan tries to get her talons into Jack, and Belial, now a newly minted Prince of Hell also trying to get him on side as they believe the world is inevitably ending and all these cracks letting the big bad monsters in are just the light entertainment before the real show begins. I love that through all these world ending predictions all Pete wants is her family to be safe, she is the rock in this series as Jack makes poor decisions and she helps reel him back in.

This was a fantastic book, I loved the zombie theme, it kind of had a Shaun of the Dead vibe (if you haven’t watched that film you need to get ON IT) only with more swearing and less ginger haired blokes. But what I liked most was how it ended, I cannot wait  i see what happens next!

About Caitlin Kittredge

Caitlin started writing novels at age 13. Her first was a Star Wars tie-in. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and the author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again. Her epic dark fantasy (thankfully) never saw the light of day but while she was struggling with elves and sorcerers she got the idea of writing a story about a werewolf who fought crime.

Two years and many, many drafts later, she pitched Night Life to a bevy of agents and one of them, Rachel Vater, sold the series to St. Martin’s.

Caitlin collects comic books, print books, vintage clothes, and bad habits. She loves tea, loud music, the color black (especially mixed with the color pink) and ghost stories. She can drive a stick shift, play the violin and knows more English curses than American ones.

Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats.
