Pure Blood

Nocturne City

Caitlin Kittredge

St. Martin's Paperbacks

In the shadows of Nocturne City, witches lurk and demons prowl, and homicide detective Luna Wilder must keep the peace—while living life as a werewolf. Now bodies are turning up all over town, the brutal murders linked by a cryptic message: We see with empty eyes…

To make matters worse for Luna, she can’t get wolfishly handsome Dmitri Sandovsky out of her mind. The last time he helped her with a case, Dmitri suffered a demon bite that infected him with a mysterious illness…and now his pack elders have forbidden him from associating with Luna. But she’ll need his help when high-level witches start turning up slaughtered. Because a war is brewing between rival clans of blood witches and caster witches—a magical gang war with the power to burn Nocturne City to the ground.

Chapter One

I’m not a patient person under the best of circumstances. Standing next to a dead man on a cold city sidewalk is not one of them.

REVIEWS

Praise for Pure Blood

Praise for the Nocturne City series:

"Pure Blood pounds along hard on the heels of Night Life, and is every bit as much fun as the first in the series.  With a gutsy, likable protagonist and a well-made fantasy world, Pure Blood is real enough to make you think twice about locking your doors at night.  A swiftly-paced plot, a growing cast of solid supporting characters, and a lead character you can actually care about--Kittredge is a winner."  --Jim Butcher

“Dark and cutting edge” —Romantic Times

“I loved the mystery and the smart, gutsy heroine.”—Karen Chance

 “Hot, hip, and fast-paced…I couldn’t put it down”—Lilith Saintcrow
