To Walk The Night by E.S. Moore (VO)

Kat Redding, Book 1

Synopsis: Even a vampire has to face her inner demons…
Kat Redding is the very thing she hunts: a vampire, thirsting for blood, capable of killing any creature unlucky enough to get in her path. The difference is, Kat kills her own kind in order to protect human Purebloods. She’s good at what she does. Good enough to earn the nickname Lady Death—and the enmity of every bloodthirsty being around. But now a vampire Count is intent on merging his House with a werewolf cult to create a force of terrifying power.

Kat can’t allow that to happen. Even if it means taking on a den of weres and a vampire more ruthless than any she’s encountered before. She has the weapons, the skill, and a few allies. But that may not be enough to eliminate the Count before her own dark nature rises to the surface—and costs her whatever is left of her humanity…

Review: I was immediately intrigued by this book when I first saw it on a blog. I have to say I’m not used to read Urban Fantasy stories featuring a heroine and written by a man. I therefore was very curious to see if it would make any difference with the other books I had the pleasure to read. And it’s true, there are some dissimilar points. I know it’s the first book of a new series and it really establishes the whole universe and the characters, but I think this novel is a lot more based on action than on feelings, unlike a lot of books in this genre. It’s not a problem, not at all, it’s even pleasant to have something like this. It allows us to get into a story a little different, which is always nice.

We therefore discover a new heroine, Kat Redding, who had a very difficult life and became stronger because of it. So many things happened in her life, some really bad stuff. We can only admire the person she has become after losing so much all over the years. It was nice to see her evolve with Ethan who is very different from her, and at the same time they have a lot in common. Each completes each other perfectly. The world where all these persons evolve is very fascinating. Indeed, the author has created a society that mixes vampires, werewolves and humans and is different from what we usually read. The world had completely changed and some houses led by vampires are used to keep enslaved werewolves who don’t have any choices other than to obey the orders.

We will discover all along the story some new characters like Jonathan who is very interesting and intriguing. Indeed from the start we just want to learn more about him. I hope we are going to in the second volume; same goes for Ethan because we don’t know a lot about him at the end of the story either. So, here, we have a little introduction about all the characters and we can only hope for more now.

The writing style is fluid, dictated by the constant Action, the fights are quite amazing and always very well described. This is a great thing because they are very important to the story.

To conclude, I would like to say that this book is a beautiful surprise. Different from the other books in this genre so I would understand if some would have difficulties to read it, but it’s a perfect choice for those who love Action.

    • I hope I didn’t make to many mistakes in my English, it was more difficult to translate… I don’t know why lol. I hope you’ll like it, it’s different, but I think it’s quite interesting. I hope you’ll like it too, I would be curious to read your opinion.

  1. “A beautiful surprise”? I think those are my favourtie kinds of surprises! 😉 Mel, you make this book sound so hard to resist!! Kat sounds like a strong and awesome character, just like Ethan sounds absolutely swoon-worthy and mysterious. Plus, I’ve been looking for a good action read too and I think I might like this one!

    Awesome review, Melliane! 🙂 This vampire girl is INTRIGUED!

    P.S. Your English is awesome, Mel! I mean it! If I didn’t already love your blog and didn’t see the French review right underneath LOL then I wouldn’t have been able to tell that you’re not a native English-speaker! 😉 <3

  2. I love UF and I’m curious about this one. I didn’t even know it was written by a man. Usually letters denote female. I’ve read a few UF with female protags and they have been good. Looks like this is another one that I would enjoy. I’m so putting this on my wishlist!

    • I think it’s nice to have something diffenrent, so it’s always a beautiful surprise when it is that way, mainly when you like the story. I thought it was funny yo have something like that for this book.
