Dark Days is a kicking butt good time of a read! 3 May 2013
By Cheryl Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jack and Pete have welcomed their daughter, Lily into the world. Jack is called upon by Belial. He has a job for Jack. Someone is trying to take over and Belial wants him stopped. Belial's nemesis is not going down without a huge battle.

Dark Days is the latest book in the Black London series. I can not get enough of Pete and Jack. Pete and Jack are one of my favorite couples. They are both sarcastic and bullheaded but yet they just belong together like salt and pepper. I thought that after pregnancy that Pete would have calmed down some but she is still not going down without a fight. This is a good thing as she and Jack had to fight a new demon that even Belial would not get near. Speaking of Belial. He is growing on me as much as any demon can. Belial and Jack's banter with each other has me smiling every moment of it.

The ending kind of hinted at the end of this series but than again the world is in shambles so I don't think I have seen the last of Pete and Jack. Which I will miss them when the time does come to an end. Dark Days is a kicking butt good time of a read!

dark violent urban fantasy 16 May 2013
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dark Days
Caitlin Kittredge
St. Martin's, Apr 30 2013, $7.99
ISBN: 9780312388263

The Prince of Hell Belial pleads with Jack Winter to help him remain on his throne in Hell; the demon's best argument is that his pretender opponent is much worse. Jack prefers to refuse as he knows never to deal with a demon as lying is natural for Hell's denizen; but visions warn him that the demonic rival is the most powerful ever known and plans to cement control by causing the barrier between the Black and the human realms to shatter. However, it is one detail in the omen that has Jack agreeing to assist Belial; he sees his beloved wife Pete Caldecott dead if the adversary takes the throne.

To succeed in saving Pete's life, Jack realizes he has only one option. Breaking a personal vow of never, Jack pledges allegiance to a malevolence worse than Belial though he knows the likely cost will be never seeing Pete or their cherished daughter again; but he also believes that is the only way she lives.

The latest Jack Winter urban fantasy (see Devil's Business, Street Magic and Bone Gods) is a dark violent affair in which enemies become allies without any trust. Dark Days (and nights) is a strong entry as Caitlin Kittredge sends our hero through a Hell of a story with the noble Jack stubbornly struggles to more than just survive, but to be with his beloved females.

A UTC TOP PICK 13 May 2013
By Under The Covers Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

...what I really like and come back for more of is Jack and Pete, they aren't your typical hero and heroine, in general the couple are foul mouthed, rude and aren't afraid to play dirty to win. ~ Under the Covers

The Apocalypse is Nigh...again. Jack Winter's visions shows London in ashes, the ones he loves dead or taken and the wall between the worlds crashing down; mingling the hosts of Hell and all the vile creatures of the Black in with the daylight world. To stop the coming apocalypse Jack may have to sacrifice more than his life and finally join the Morrigan leaving all he loves behind.

I love the Black London series, it is dark and gritty, filled with difficult situations and has one of the most interesting leading couples, Jack Winter and Pete Caldecott. Dark Days continues the tradition set in the previous books in this series; setting up seemingly hopeless situations that never have an easy answer and a victory clinched at the maw of defeat through cleverness, luck and sheer ballsiness.

And, although I love Ms Kittredge's plots and the ideas she puts in her books, what I really like and come back for more of is

Jack and Pete, they aren't your typical hero and heroine, in general the couple are foul mouthed, rude and aren't afraid to play dirty to win. But I like them, they are interesting and the dark side of each of them makes the more so. They are also a perfect match for one another and I love how their relationship has grown through out the series creating a marriage so strong that sometimes the weight of the apocalypse rests on it.

What I also love about these books is the writing, everything is brought to vivid life and sucks you deeper into the book. For example the dialogue is excellent, the way Jack and Pete speak, especially Jack, he manages to be both crude but also poetic and clever at the same time, like below:

There was no higher power. There were the beings older and hungrier than you, and there was avoiding being stepped in when they got a hair up their bum cracks

This was another fantastic installment in the series, although it did end on a little bit of a cliff hanger, which means I now can not wait to get my hands on the next book!
Great series...ending? 19 July 2014
By Paris Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I can’t tell if this is the last in the series or not, but if it is, I can say that I’m satisfied with the way things ended. This was a wild ride from beginning to end, typical and true Pete and Jack. I loved going on this last ride with them. It was great getting to know more about Jack, seeing more of his past. He led us through this book and at first I was a little sad we were missing Pete so much, but after a while, I didn’t care. I liked Jack on his one. He’s such a smarta$$. I love his snarkiness and his witty comebacks.

My one big complaint was that things tended to get a little confusing with the flashbacks, the real time and the visions that Jack was having. Sometimes I didn’t know what end was up, but that opening chapter was crazy and I’m glad that the book started like that. I didn’t know what the heck was going on, but my heart was racing and I couldn’t stop turning pages.

I have read a lot of books by Caitlin Kittredge and I’ve enjoyed all of them. This series was probably my favorite of hers because of how different it was and how crazy Jack is. He definitely made the series and if this is the end, I’m sad to see him go, but I loved the way this ended.
A Bit Better than the last two. 8 Sep 2013
By DRRD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one was a bit better than the last two. Pete and Jack seemed to work better together, and there was less snarky fighting between them, which was nice. And there wasn't the constant trash talking everyone they met. Although the trash talking was still pretty heavy. I do get tired of Jack running off at the mouth when he knows it's a bad idea. His immaturity and lack of control isn't a part of his personality I enjoy.

I'm also not sure I bought the ending. The world presented as a vision at the start of the book would have felt more realistic than what actually happened. The ending made it sound like life will be a walk in the park compared to what had been predicted. It's still a pretty bleak and stark result, but Pete and Jack act as if everything had come up roses. Yet I didn't see any real reason for the difference between what was predicted and what unfolded except that one character seemed to act very much out of character at the end, softening the result of the events that played out.

The ending felt forced into place, and I can't really buy into it happening that way.
