Kat’s world is about to be turned upside down.

Kat is a one woman wrecking crew when it comes to taking down undesirable vampires and werewolves. Now there is a new force in town. One that is killing in what appears to be with Kat’s signature moves. This does not bode well for her. She is already trying to protect Purebloods, now it looks like she is going to have to work twice as hard to protect her own hide.

Kat begins to question her existence and the desire to continue down her chosen road. When a side trip shows her a new way of life, she must take a long hard look at herself, her past and her future. While Kat is fighting for her life, she must decide if she wants to start living again.

This novel had two very different storylines in it. While one was playing out the other was in the background being a tempting mistress. After Kat’s life takes an unexpected turn, you dive right into the next story with both feet. Mr. Moore begins to set the stage for the next book with a bunch of questions and suspense.

The first storyline is classic Kat; action, suspense and strained alliances. Knowing the circumstances behind Kat’s life, I really could see the outcome from a mile away. But that was okay. You were able to visit old enemies and have some burning questions answered. I think personally, I would have enjoyed a deeper concentration into the main darker plot. It felt short changed. Mr. Moore makes it all seem better though by throwing in a new element, Ethan’s buddy – Beligral.

The second plot is very intriguing. Mr. Moore’s writing made my skin crawl with how potentially sinister it felt. I think the new direction in Kat’s life is going to make for some very interesting reading. But again, it was just a tiny taste and not exactly fulfilling. Kat is completely out of her element and it makes me excited to read the next book in the series, Blessed By a Demon’s Mark, which is currently scheduled for release in January 2013.

Tainted Night, Tainted Blood as a whole, came together in an interesting pleasant way. I was drawn in and I came away with questions answered and my imagination soaring. This is very good Urban Fantasy. There is lots of action and a kick-butt heroine. It makes for some very fun reading!

The first book of the series was great. This book however crossed from Urban Fantasy into unbelievable. Kat made so many stupid decisions and choices that it became irritating. She crossed from strong, kickass heroine to too stupid to live. I'm sure that this is all leading to the next book's storyline but it was too much. Kat turned into a whiny, poor me, spineless mess. I had no empathy left for her and really just wanted to slap her. I will probably get the next book to see if she puts her big girl pants on again but if she hasn't bucked the hell up it will be the last book of this series that I buy. If I wanted whiny, stupid heroines I would buy romance books.

    Flawed heroine, excellent story! Kat Redding was a monster hunt

    Flawed heroine, excellent story!

    Kat Redding was a monster hunter, hunting down vampires and werewolves with her brother Thomas until they were captured and she was turned into a vampire and Thomas was tainted with both vampire and werewolf blood making him an uncontrollable insane killing machine. It’s been years since her turning and the last time she saw her brother, but Kat continues to hunt the rogues who torture and kill Purebloods (humans) earning her the title Lady Death. 




    There are few who know that Lady Death and Kat are the same person. When brutal killings show up with her style and signature sword marks the monsters believe Lady Death has gone mad. After it’s determined by the local werewolves she’s not the one doing the killing, Kat agrees to an uneasy alliance with them to find the person responsible for the carnage. But when Kat discovers who the killer is will she survive what needs to be done?




    A compelling second book about Kat Redding and the delving into the psyche of a monster who hates being a monster. Kat hates what she is, but she’s dealing with it as best she can. In this book she has problem after problem dumped onto her and when she’s confronted with her past, the result sends her over the edge. This is one of those books that you love and you hate. The story is excellent, but you hate what a character you care about has to endure. And the ending, can I say how much I hated the ending? Not that it was a bad ending, far from it. I just hated that it ended the way it did. Read it and you’ll understand. I’ll say no more except to say I’m so glad Book 3, 'Blessed by a Demon’s Mark'  is out and I can see what happens next.




    Well-written, compelling characters, fast action and internal struggling, this book is an excellent read. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes books similar to the early Anita Blake series by LKH or the new Deacon Chalk series by James R. Tuck.
