My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Filled with empathic characters, Hunting Midnight continues on with Ulric desperately trying to fill the gap in his heart after losing Gillian when he encounters Juliana who is desperate to escape an arranged marriage. Juliana blackmails Ulric into helping her and we follow their adventures on their run to Scotland and Ulric’s pack where Hunting Midnight continues on with Ulric desperately trying to fill the gap in his heart after losing Gillian when he encounters Juliana who is desperate to escape an arranged marriage. Juliana blackmails Ulric into helping her and we follow their adventures on their run to Scotland and Ulric’s pack where they have still more adventures. Holly does a nice job of “rehabilitating” Ulric after his poor showing in Catching Midnight.

Night Owl takes place 700 years later when Ulric banishes his French upyrs, Bastien and Emile, to America where the two buy an inn in Vermont and Bastien encounters a passionate baker who is harassed by an ex-best friend after her grandfather’s recipes.
