Series: Madeline Black, #2
Release Date: July 26, 2011
Madeline Black is an Agent of death, meaning she escorts the souls of people who have died to the afterlife. Of course, not everyone is happy to see her...
If obstinate dead people were all that Maddy had to worry about, life would be much easier. But the best-laid plans of Agents and fallen angels often go awry. Deaths are occurring contrary to the natural order, Maddy's being stalked by foes inside and outside of her family, and her two loves-her bodyguard, Gabriel, and her doughnut-loving gargoyle, Beezle-have disappeared. But because Maddy is Lucifer's granddaughter, things are expected of her, things like delicate diplomatic missions to other realms.
BLACK NIGHT is even more hot and action-packed as the previous book Black Wings. I could not for the life of me put the book down, and I feel it has improved greatly from the issues I had with Black Wings with it reading like a YA book.
In BLACK NIGHT we get to spend more time with J.B, Madeline's boss and Nathaniel, Madeline's fiannce. I have to say that I love J.B. and just cannot get enough of him. We learn some new things about J.B, like who her really is. And I am really looking forward to more.
"Gabriel is my bodyguard," I said stiffly. J.B. snorted. "He wants something to do with your body, but it ain't guarding that he's thinking about."
I completely despised Nathaniel is the first book and I can't believe it I'm started to like him. No. That can't happen. I guess this is one of the cases when the heroine is making a big impact on the guy you kind of hate. In BLACK NIGHT I am seeing a softer side of Nathaniel that I really like and I can't wait to see more of how this guy changes.
As for Gabriel, the guy Madeline really likes but they can't be together, he was absent for most of the book and I really liked that. I think that may be one reason I really liked this book. I feel like Madeline and Gabriel are so boring. I much prefer her with one of the other guys.
Madeline kicks butt as usual and she is becoming more and more of a bad ass, just the way I like my heroines. I did find Madeline annoying some of the time in this book though. I think it was some of the decisions she made without really thinking, and the whining about needing Gabriel back.
As usual there was a great ending just like in the first book. BLACK NIGHT exceeded my expectations and surprised my quite a bit. I will be definitely picking up the third in the Madeline Black Series, Black Howl.
