Night Howls (Nyx Slaughter 4)
by Amber Lynn
Below you can read about Night Howls, the fourth book in the Nyx Slaughter series by Amber Lynn. You also have the chance to win a copy of Night Calls, the first book in the series, in the giveaway below. Look out for my review of Night Calls and my interview with the author, my review of Night Marks, and my review of Night Bites in my previous blog posts. Posts on the other books in this series are coming soon. There are seven books so far in the series: Night Calls, Night Marks, Night Bites, Night Howls, Night Lurks, Night Finds, and Night Rises, which has just been released. You can also find all seven books in one volume. Beware … once you start reading this series, you won’t be able to stop.
I don’t watch television, I don’t go to the movies, I don’t like pampered princesses, and I don’t like large crowds milling about my streets.
So, you can imagine how much I am enjoying having Hollywood descend upon Night Owl City. That’s right, I am yet again, in a bad mood. My poor mates are convinced I have a bad case of PMS., but they are so wrong. Now, if the nightmares I am having start coming true on top of the cameras, then we could compare this to my time of the month.
When members of a film crew start showing up looking like chopped liver and one of my guards is blamed, I have to put my hatred aside to find out who and what is attacking them. To get the answers to those questions, I am forced to go undercover as an actress.
Maybe we will see my name up in lights. Who am I kidding? My scenes better be cut in final production, if they were even bothering to record them in the first place.
This is book four in the Nyx Slaughter series. It is a companion book to the fifth book and will lead right into the next book, Night Lurks.
“Are you going to tell me you don’t know what I found when I opened my package from your place of business?” I have been doing business with the man for years now; he had to have known I wouldn’t find this funny.
“Please tell me there wasn’t a mix-up with your order.” I cannot tell if he is just acting or if he really doesn’t know what is going on.
“If that’s what you want to call it. I don’t tend to go around ordering handcuffs and blank rounds. Even when I am just target shooting, I use live ammo and you know I tend to kill any of the bad guys I go after. What am I supposed to do with handcuffs?”
If you were to ask one of my mates that question, I am sure they would have all sorts of fun ideas, but right now I really don’t want to think about them. My mind already spends way too much time in the gutter.
“Oh crap,” Paul curses softly under his breath. “We have a new guy, Larry, that has been shipping out our orders. The guy is missing way more than just a few brain cells and must have gotten things mixed up. It sounds like you got the order meant for the movie crew.” Great. Why in the world would they let someone who is obviously incompetent ship out orders with weapons? Talk about a giant fail. I am scared to know what else this idiot might have messed up.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to read this one yet and there are no reviews online. However it does have a 4.5 star rating on Goodreads. I will add my review as soon as I have read it.
I love books. Until recently, I kept to just reading them, but ideas for characters and scenes took control of my mind and made me have to get those ideas down. I started with a series I called Avery Clavens. I enjoyed the world I created there, but it was really still the world we all live in so I decided to move on to something just a little bit different.
In my Nyx Slaughter series, the real world is still out there, but my characters have their own little corner to call their own. I love that it is a bit more fantasy based and I am able to make more things up as I go. I can see at least three more books coming from that world with the possibility of having some different characters’ points of view.
This whole writing thing is a hobby for me. I sit down on the weeknights and weekends and just float over to my other worlds for a while. Other hobbies of mine include: drawing, baking, arts and crafts, motorcycles, hockey, and archery. I like to think I have eclectic tastes where my hobbies are concerned. I love to laugh and try to make myself smile at least once a day. With the crazy thoughts going on in my head that usually isn’t hard.
