We bonded in darkness, over darkness.

Melanie Vaughn’s job ruined everything. Her social life, nonexistent. Her relationship with her boyfriend, a hostile roommate situation. She resolves to fix everything one snowy afternoon, but instead comes home to discover her boyfriend is already exploring other options. Blonder, bustier options. Rage drives Melanie to do the unthinkable.

When Soul Divider was on the top of the world, so was Ryder Maddox. When the band faded into obscurity, Ryder’s luck plummeted with it. In a last ditch effort to rekindle the band’s heyday, Soul Divider teams up with powerful vampire clan leader, Talis de Rancourt. In return for her services, the band pays the ultimate price for never ending fame.

Now on the run, Melanie meets Ryder in a middle of nowhere hotel. She never expected her teenage rock star crush to be as lost and as in need of a companion as she is. Their connection is all consuming, even before they find they share another kinship: murder.

The newly turned vampires in Soul Divider still have a lot to learn. The police and public begin to connect the girls that go missing or die in sync with the band’s tour schedule. Back at home, clues are also adding up against Melanie as well. Between constant media coverage and unrelenting attention from the authorities, Melanie and Ryder find themselves in uncharted territory.

Night Moves is the second book in the Night Songs series. I loved reading Tristan and Callie's story and couldn't wait to get my hands on the second book, which did not disappoint at all.

I was thought I was going to read a book about Immortal Dilemma but instead I was introduced to and kind of fell in love with Soul Divider. Night Moves was definitely a good book but there a couple of moments that kind of just had me asking “WTF”.

I loved Mel but would have loved to seen her grow some. She seemed to flip from strong willed and confident to a mousy little girl. Considering the circumstances that brought her to Ryder and Soul Divider you think she would be a strong kick ass girl at all times.

I absolutely loved the chemistry between Ryder and Mel. They started off with such a crazy little one night stand but staying together feels so natural. I really connected with Ryder and could feel his pain and regret every time he talked about the life he had before and who he would like to reconnect with.

I love the fast paced storytelling and the descriptive way she wrote it makes me feel like I can see and hear everything the characters can. I can feel what they’re feeling – especially Mel’s hate for Talis I hope she gets what’s coming to her. I also love the human struggle with dealing with the super natural world they unknowingly live in.

There are a lot of twists and turns throughout this book and so I don’t spoil it I will tell you this; READ IT! Go back and get the first book and then read this one. And the cliffy in this one – is AWESOME! I am so looking forward to book 3! I cannot wait.
