I'm Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd owner of the Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. Things have been busy lately. While the near-constant attempts on my life have ceased, I now have a vampire gentleman caller. I've been living with Clive and the rest of his vampires for a few weeks while the Slaughtered Lamb is being rebuilt. It's going about as well as you'd expect.
My mother was a wicche and long dormant abilities are starting to make themselves known. If I'd had a choice, necromancy wouldn't have been my top pick, but it's coming in handy. A ghost warns me someone is coming to kill Clive. When I rush back to the nocturne, I find vamps from New Orleans readying an attack. One of the benefits of vampires looking down on werewolves is no one expects much of me. They don't expect it right up until I take their heads.
Now, Clive and I are setting out for New Orleans to take the fight back to the source. Vampires are masters of the long game. Revenge plots are often decades, if not centuries, in the making. We came expecting one enemy, but quickly learn we have darker forces scheming against us. Good thing I'm the secret weapon they never see coming.

I hate finishing an excellent series and trying to slog through all the books to find something new to grab my attention. This is an excellent series!
Sam is now living with sexy English vampire Clive, the Master of the City, while her bar and apartment are being rebuilt, but is struggling to win over his “nocturne” - as his family of vampires are known. When a delegation from New Orleans stage an unprovoked attack, and only Sam’s new abilities save the day, the team decide they must travel to Louisiana to sort out arrogant trouble-maker Lafitte once and for all.
While vampires and werewolves are staples of modern UF, the best part of these books are the range of other creatures - wicches, demons, ghosts, even a Fury, all interacting more or less amiably - I particularly liked hilarious new character Stheno - I won’t spoil her species, but it’s a doozy! Sam is a likeable heroine although I found her transition from frightened victim (in the last book) to unassailable badass a bit rapid. This had lots of well done fight scenes, and a tolerable romantic subplot - I’m not sure we needed the corny sex scene but at least there’s only one. I didn’t like the increase in swearing compared to the last book - including the dreaded c-word - completely unnecessary even if you’re trying to convey how despicable an antagonist is.
There were some minor mistakes and plot holes that were disappointing for a published book (this was not an ARC - I actually bought it!) Nothing serious. There were no great surprises in the plot but I enjoyed the adventure regardless and look forward to the next instalment, which is out soon - and I’m pleased to see that Sam does get to re-open her bar, which was my favourite part of the first book.
