Early Review: To Walk the Night by E. S. Moore

Early Review: To Walk the Night by E. S. Moore

December 30, 2011 Review 11 ★★★

This book more than lives up to it’s kick butt cover art in terms of menace; fans of a darker, grittier brand of urban fantasy will love E. S. Moore’s TO WALK THE NIGHT. Kat Redding stalks through the underbelly of a changed but recognizable version of our world, striking fear in the hearts of the predators that prey upon ordinary humans. It was almost impossible not to imagine Kate Beckinsale’s leather-clad form as Kat, but unfortunately, no scruffy and handsome leading man appeared to fight by her side.
