Back in 2012 Tracey Sinclair introduced us to the world of “Dark Dates”, a London inhabited by vampires and home to feisty heroine and “sensitive” Cassandra Bick.
At the start of Wolf Night, the second book in the series, Cassandra is putting her life and her dating agency business back together again after thwarting a vampire coup with the help of her friends, new-age witch Medea and shapeshifter, Katie. Long-time on-off lover, Cain is conspicuous by his absence from London whilst seductive vampire Laclos is proving difficult for her to resist. And there is a new presence in the city. Ferocious and bloody attacks on innocents can only be the result of a pack of vicious werewolves. When the pack threatens her friends, Cain makes his welcome return and Cassandra must once again work to save the city she loves.
I am an unashamed fan of this series and have been pleased to design the cover artwork for both titles in the series as well as the short stories that Sinclair has published to keep her loyal fans happy between novels. Sinclair’s characters are made of the same stuff as cult favourites Anita Blake and Sookie Stackhouse but with a fresh, British flavour. Sinclair’s ability to write great action scenes is put to good use in this fast-moving adventure which builds on the pace set by the first book. Fans of urban fantasy will find an original and exciting voice in Tracey Sinclair and will no doubt be clamouring for more Cassandra Bick very soon.
