4 out of 5 Stars
All Loni Stanfield was looking for was a good book to read. What she got was enough terror and danger to last a lifetime. Alec Page is a Dark Enforcer, one of the elite paranorms who patrol by night. Alec is a mimic with the rare ability to take on the powers of the last being he touches. He must use his ability to defeat the evil haunting the streets of Phoenix. Paranorms are turning up dead with no clues as to who or what is the cause. Drugs are also being distributed that give humans paranorm abilities, wreaking havoc in both paranorm and human realities. Dawson, a powerful sorcerer, may be behind everything, and Alec is out to stop the devastation before it goes too far. Loni finds herself in a paranorm reality that she read about in a novel and then she meets Alec, the hero of that very book. Soon she finds herself falling for him at the same time she's discovering magical powers of her own. Alec is drawn to Loni, no matter that she's human...and taboo. When Loni is kidnapped and in the sorcerer's clutches, Alec must save her as well as save a city on the verge of destruction.
I have to give this author credit for the absolute best story idea ever. When I first read the synopsis of Night's Captive, I immediately thought of The Neverending Story. If any of you haven't seen it, it’s about a boy who reads a book and becomes part of it. Well this story was much better because Loni, actually lived it. Who wouldn’t want to walk into a book story and have the owner fit you to a book that is just what you are looking for, not only in reading it but living it. Well, that’s what Loni got. Walks into a bookstore, takes a book home and the next day begins living apart of that story along with all the characters. How can you not love that?! Night's Captive has all the elements to it that keep you reading. Constant action and adventure, mystery, romance and characters that you can’t help but like. Kudos to the author for originality. Can’t wait for book 2. Enjoy!
