Our Review by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle
*eARC received from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

--Actual rating 3.5 Skulls

Night Owls takes place in a semi-closed society. Our heroine, Val, a bookstore owner who used to be a Hunter (and is a vampire), tries to
exist quietly with her Renfield Chaz and a group of unlikely allies, a couple of succubi, 2 ex Brotherhood members, and a human until a
group of vicious, bloodthirsty Jackals come to town and the entire gang must go on the offensive. 

The book was well written, it had delightful characters, interesting world building, fun dialogue, and some cool twists. Did I love it? No. Was
it worth the read. Certainly. 

Miss Roy deserves kudos for coming into a genre so steeped in material that it is hard to find something unique with exactly that, some
new material. She also takes us back to the old days of Urban Fantasy where there really was no romance. It was all about the world, the
characters and the story arc. 

Even though I personally didn't love it, it was very enjoyable and looks to be an exciting start to a great new urban fantasy series. I'll
definitely tune in for book #2.

    There is nothing obviously wrong with this book. The plot is pretty quick and it walks a fine line between being familiar enough not to scare people off while being new enough that it should keep you interesting. The characters involved are realistic enough that you believe that they could exist in this insane situation. And this is one of the only times recently that I have read a book in which vampires are treated in a way that is intelligent and doesn't make me want to hurl. All that being said this book just doesn't jell. There's nothing about it that says why I couldn't get into it because it has all the write ingredients, and the writing isn't bad, but somehow it just doesn't work well enough to make it a good book.
