    It's difficult feeling like an outsider. Add being a werewolf who isn't `pure.' Now you understand Ross Kavanaugh dilemma. Come the Night is the third in the vampire/wolf trilogy by Susan Krinard. The two previous books are: Chasing Midnight and Dark of the Moon.

    In Come the Night, Krinard explores the relationship between two people from two different worlds that fit the "opposites attract" adage. Ross meets Gillian Maitland in an England hospital while recuperating from a war injury. Ross accidentally discovers that Gillian is a loup-garou or wolf and to her surprise, he discloses that he is one, too. But Gillian's excitement is short lived when Ross reveals himself only ¼ wolf.

    Because Gillian is from a prominent were-wolf blood-line, she is expected to carry the tradition by marrying someone to carry on the pure genes of her race. Because of this, she leaves Ross without an explanation.

    It is now 10 years later, Ross lives in New York where Gillian finds him while hunting for her son. Gillian doesn't want Ross's help but trouble follows her. The passion the two had together is rekindled but Gillian feels duty bound to return to her old life again.

    This book was a solid read. But after reading the book I was left with a vague feeling of disappointment because Ross and Gillian didn't work well as a couple. Gillian was too rigid and cold. This made it difficult to like her. I could understand her, but it made me wonder what the appeal was for Ross.

    Susan Krinard's description of New York in the twenties was interesting and fun to read. Overall, followers of this series will be satisfied with the culmination of this trilogy.

  • Accused of a murder, suspended NYPD detective Ross Kavanaugh is at the lowest point in his life when a souvenir of his 'doughboy' soldier days turns up - the son Ross didn't know he had. A mixed-blood werewolf, Ross hasn't forgotten the passion he shared with pureblood Gillian or her devastating rejection upon discovering that Ross was too human to `shift'. When Gillian turns up with her brother to retrieve her errant son, Ross is not sure of his feelings toward the controlled woman who was once his uninhibited lover. Gillian had never planned to face the man she once spurned, though she's never gotten over the attraction to Ross, Gillian has bowed to her destiny to be mated to a pedigreed shifter and produce pureblood cubs in order to ensure the survival of the loupe-garou race.

    The machinations of Gillian's son and brother, bring Ross to England and open Ross' eyes to the reality of Gillian's situation. But with Gillian's father holding a werewolf `summit' there is a whole `pack' of troubles to overcome if the plan to give Gillian a chance at happiness by inserting Ross into Gillian's life going to work. And if a fanatic father and a houseful of purebloods isn't enough of an obstacle, death has followed Ross back to England and Gillian and his son are in danger.

    In the forward to Come the Night, Krinard says she loves the detective archetype and you can tell. Even without his wolfishness amping it up a notch werewolf police detective on the outs Ross - once he has a purpose again - is truly a perfect specimen, honorable, observant, and intelligent, and his human blood doesn't stop him from being plenty alpha enough to hold his own against a bunch of arrogant purebloods. I could absolutely understand why Gillian found him so impossible to resist. Gillian is great as the beleaguered and put upon dutiful daughter, who has learned that she will never be good enough in her father's eyes and accepts the abominable treatment he dishes out except where it bled over to her son. And even though as a human she's cowered in the omega wolf role to her father's disdainful Alpha, it is clear that her wolf doesn't belong at the bottom of the pack and when the opportunities arise her true abilities and leadership shine through.

    All of the posturing and wolf politics provide a nice backdrop for Gillian and Ross' relationship dance, adding flavor to the story and providing them opportunities to butt heads and with obstacles to overcome. The only weakness in the story is the murder thread, it really isn't woven in very well, other than giving Ross a reason to be free to follow Gillian back to England it doesn't really play that significant a role in the bulk of story - it's ignored through most of the book and just pops back up near the end to punch up the finish.

    That nit aside, I still thoroughly enjoyed Come the Night, it was the best of Krinard's roaring 20's paranormal trilogy, far superior the disappointing Dark of the Moon and even better than Chasing Midnight (The Roaring Twenties Supernaturals Series, Book 1) the werewolf/vampire romance which I actually liked a lot (the starring pair of that book, Allie and Griff have a cameo here). Those of you who are fans of Krinard's earlier werewolf romances will notice some subtle tie-ins to her historical werewolves from a few years back, you'll recognize the `Convocation' (the purebloods' werewolf summit) and I am guessing that Ross Kavanaugh is the son of Tally and Simeon Kavanaugh (To Tame A Wolf (Historical Werewolf Series, Book 5)) In fact Come the Night is classic Krinard, and very much feels like some of her earlier books from the days when she was the reigning queen of werewolf romances.

  • I won't go into detail about the plot, but just give my thoughts on the book. It took a long time to read this book. At first I thought it was just because of the holidays but after finishing it I'm not sure I'd have read it that much faster any other time.

    It's a little too long and a bit repetitive in the way the author has the hero and heroine coming together then separating again and again. And I'm not a fan of the plot device of the central characters never telling each other how they feel until the very end. I liked Ross our disgraced hero, but Gillian didn't inspire me at all. In fact, for most of the book I wasn't sure I liked her very much. And after all the misunderstandings and betrayals and doubts they got together a little too quickly and easily at the end. All in all it was a disappointment. It could have been a much better story.

  • The first half of this book was fairly good, thus the three stars. But by the second half, when the development of the relationship had progressed very little, I started to lose interest. Gillian never seemed to change. I liked Ross, what I couldn't figure out is what he saw in Gillian! The author was never able to make her likable. She was just annoying! What started out to be good chemistry between the main characters quickly fell flat. All we got were several quik couplings, because they were so overcome by desire apparently they couldn't help themselves. But it never seemed to progress beyond that. I wasn't all that interested in the werewolf society, the murders were no mystery, as you know who the mastermind is the whole time. There was a couple of interesting (if a little disturbing) twists. All in all, not her best work by a long shot!
