Wolf Night was wonderful and it satisfied a craving for a popular vampire culture snarkfest. I remember liking book #1, Dark Dates, but since then Tracey settled into the genre comfortably and her writing got considerably better.
The thing is, the plot is good and it's pure urban fantasy, but it's the banter between the characters which really gets you.
Laclos for example who is a spitting image of Jean-Claude from Anita Blake's series and a 2000-year old vampire ruling London doesn't take himself seriously and plays on cultural cliches.
"I have tried to be romantic, have I not? I have flirted, I have charmed - and I am well aware of just how charming I can be - and I have been attentive. I have sent you some of the finest wines money can buy..."
"Oh. So, I probably shouldn't be drinking them like cheap plonk, should I?" I frowned, guiltily, and he flashed me a brief, appalled glance. I think it was the first time I'd properly shocked him.
"Once I get to the stage of bringing you actual furniture, I am afraid I am running out of ideas, beyond swooping through your bedroom windows in a velvet cloak and watching you while you sleep - which not only has been done to death by my predecessors, but is, I think you'll agree, actually slightly creepy. So, no, this is not romantic. But I was rather under the impression that you were tired of hollow romantic gestures, when they come from a basis of untruth."
I frowned at him. He had me there. I really wasn't doing that well in this argument. As usual, I tried to mask my confusion with humour.
"You totally have a velvet cape, don't you?Read more ›
There's a new baddie in town, and once again Cass finds herself caught up trying to save London, alongside the delicious Cain and fabulously arrogant Laclos. There's some great twists in this book and plenty of dry humour even in the tensest moments, with the repartee between Cain and Laclos being particularly clever. One of the things I love about the Dark Dates series is that, unlike many fantasy books, the supernatural happens alongside normal life - Cain queuing in Tesco, vampires drinking in pubs etc. London is almost a character of its own and I love that Sinclair has steered clear of setting the action around the city's more famous sights and landmarks and instead used lesser-known areas, like Smithfield. I really enjoyed finding out more about the characters' histories and seeing their relationships with each other evolve too. Wolf Night is much darker in tone than Dark Dates, and the ending suggests the next story is going to be even more so.
I really want to read book 3 now!
As in the first book, Tracey Sinclair uses her location brilliantly, with London not just being the setting for the action, but an integral part of it. In Cass's London, wolves prowl waste grounds around the Shard, and vampires hold parties in historic theatres. In Cass's London, you're never very far from an Other.
We learn more about Cass and her friends in Wolf Night, with hints and revelations about often dark and tainted pasts. In fact, I found Wolf Night on the whole to be a much darker book in tone to Dark Dates- which I liked. The best genre fiction reflects the real world and echoes real fears and horrors- at its heart, Wolf Night is about intolerance and violence, two things sadly ever-present and linked in the real world.
That's not to say the book isn't hilarious. From Cain the angel delivering anatomically inappropriate threats, to Cass worrying about which historically beautiful women her almost-immortal boyfriends may have dated (and that therefore she has to compare herself to), the book is funny and enjoyable. And, best of all, the ending sets up a sequel of Biblical proportions. What's going to hit London next? Can't wait.
Those who are familiar with Dark Dates will rejoice that their favourite characters have returned stronger than ever. There is just as much passion on the pages as before, but this time round the characters are well established, their supernatural skills are well honed, and whilst Cassandra, Medea and Katie remain the heart and soul of the story; it is in the interaction between the supernatural alpha males, Laclos and Cain where the story really starts to zing off the scale, as love, hate, jealousy, and overwhelming lust, all spiral out of control.
I am sure that the author is onto a real winner with this series. The urban fantasy world in which these characters roam has the potential to run and run and run.....

This tighter, faster follow-up to Dark Dates is witty and gripping and makes superb use of London as a backdrop: Wilton's Music Hall, the bookshops of Cecil Court, even St Paul's. Read morePublished on 10 July 2013 by Natasha
