Midnight Reflections - Review


A while ago Katrina Michaels stopped in tell us a little about herself and her newest novel, Midnight Reflections. If you missed that post click here.

After chatting with her I just had to read her novel!

I loved it.

Author Katrina Michaels has a refreshing twist on the traditional vampire mythos. Out in the open, the supernaturals mingle with society. They of course must follow some rules to keep everything happy. She maintains the “can’t go inside unless invited” rule, and Vampires are still relegated to the night, as usual; but, the fact that things are in a bit of harmony is a nice thing. That is due to The Preternatural Agency.

The story opens with Tara having a fun night out at the club with her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend. Upon leaving, she dumps him and he takes it pretty badly. He attacks her and bludgeons her to death. Thankfully, the club they were at was one that caters to the undead. He takes her inside and convinces a vampire to turn her, so he can escape being blamed for her death.  

Though she didn’t want to be turned, she takes it in stride. I have to say I love Tara. She’s a character you can really enjoy. Upon awaking as a vampire she finds she’s now child to a 300 year old Vampire, Alexander, who wants to be a father again. He misses the companionship and ability to pass on his knowledge.  He’s actually very caring, for a vamp, and helps to bring Tara up to speed and teach her how to take care of herself. Which is something she will need to take on the true villain of this story.  

Tara’s ex-roommates boyfriend ends up dead and the mystery surrounding his as well as other deaths leads Tara to The Preternatural Agency and agent Tom who seems to get in her way, or is it the other way around? I’d rather not give too much away, suffice to say this was a fun read, a nice blend of Urban Fantasy and Mystery. 

I am looking forward to more from this author! If you enjoy Urban Fantasy, check this book out.
