Wish I read the first
When I started reading this book, I was not aware that it was a sequel to Claire de Lune... Which was a book I had picked up, and put back down a while back. Despite not being interested in the first book, I still found this book to be pretty good and it grabbed my attention. It was well written, and I was able to connect with the main character. My only hangup, was that I felt like a lot of the book talked about the first book. Information and events were constantly talked about and I felt like, as a sequel, it should be focused on new events. But aside from that, I did enjoy Nocturne. I instantly knew how Claire felt with her friend troubles. Amy, the "intruder" was a character that I instantly recognized from my high school days. The always happy, never lets anything get to her, good grades, friends with everyone girl that I hated. Claire's character was stubborn and like many high school students, struggled with adjusting to a new lifestyle. Overall, I liked this book, but I regret not reading the first.

I really enjoyed Ms. Johnson writing, I love her style of writing and the way she is able to capture her readers. Immediately as the reader begins this book, you are thrown in the world Ms. Johnson created in her mind, its comes to life before your eyes and then your gone...Was this review helpful?

What I loved most about this book is the drama the is played out in the book. As Claire learns more about being a werewolf, things become more dangerous. Much more is expected from Claire since she is the Alpha's daughter. Claire deals with friends drama, boyfriend drama, and her secret is discovered. The plot pacing of this book is great! It slowly creeps onto the reader and you are drown in secrets, ceremonies, and believe me, your heart aches.
The characters in this book are much more advanced then there were in the last. So many things got stricter as well as all of Claire personal relationships. Things got harder for Claire to face, her friends, even her boyfriend, Claire had a hard time juggling it all. I am glad though that Claire is able to find a friendship where she least expected it. Even I was surprised!
Nocturne is a great sequel! One that is filling in writing and in growth. Many characters have changed for the good and others bad. Ms. Johnson wrote a satisfying novel that leaves me hanging for more. I can't wait to see what adventure Claire goes on next. Nocturne is a stunning, breath-taking read that you don't want to miss!
