The second book in the â€œNight Watchâ€ series, allows the female hunter Dee to shine. Physically the smallest of the hunter team, she makes up for her size with training and determination. Continuing the series theme, Dee becomes more powerful by letting go of past prejudices to embrace her current opportunities. The dynamic between Dee and her romantic interest Simon allows both to be dominant and tolerant in and out of the bedroom. This book is particularly strong reflecting on the theme of what it means to be â€œOtherâ€ and/or â€œHumanâ€ and how actions rather than essential categories determine good and evil. Series regulars will enjoy seeing past couples and foreshadowing of upcoming central characters.
