Publisher's Summary

Like many paranormals of Greek descent, Kai Xanthopoulos will not know her true nature until her young powers fully manifest. Unlike her parents - and much to the dismay of her stray cat best friend - Kai has chosen not to spend the rest of her life at the diner in Nocturne Falls. She takes a job at Delaney's Delectables instead, a decision that puts her directly in the path of a fugitive werewolf that could change her destiny....

Finn Kincaid is cursed. Literally. Accused of murdering his pack-brother, beaten, and left for dead in the woods, he runs to Nocturne Falls to seek sanctuary with the one cousin who successfully got out of Tennessee: Ivy Merrow, the sheriff's wife. On his way there, he's drawn off course by a girl with no idea how much power she possesses, both within herself and over him. Together, Kai and Finn must find a way to break the curse and fight their fate, without destroying each other - and their future - in the process.

Cute and sweet for something so heavy.

Definitely in the flavour of the series. I was thrown when I realised that the characters were teenagers and I felt the story was a bit too heavy for that age, but it worked. A lot of sass and snark and I'm sorry there wasn't more of a three way with Owen but that probably would have been too progressive for this series. Also keen for more of a story with Owen, there's a lot open there.
Hank and Ivy's daughter was missing from this story too. Maybe that's a time line thing but it's not obvious so it could be something that was missed.
A wonderful continuation of Harrison's work that made the change in author not so obvious.

Please more audio NFU!

Kristen has chosen an excellent writer to extend her NF world! Sadly, it seems this is the only one in audio so far.

However, this story is a complete delight. The characters are well defined and perfectly true to Kristen's own wonderfully imaginative world. The plot line, also, smacks of the other Nocturne Falls stories with only a slight hint of its own brain behind it. I have all of Kristen's books and have been hungry for more. I so look forward to more of these delightful stories in audio, as I have difficulty reading. Probably just aged eyes, but, nonetheless, most of the books I buy now are from Audible.

Great new author

I highly enjoyed this Nocturne Falls addition. I'm glad Kristian Painter decided to give new authors a chance. Alethea Kontis did a wonderful job of writing this addition, I hope to read/listen to more of her work. I highly recommend this story, especially to those who are fans of Kristen Painter.

Why did I wait so long!

I wish I hadn't waited so long to venture into the Nocturne Falls "Universe." I couldn't see how anyone else could do justice to the world that Kristen Painter created. I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to be wrong! The fact that B.J. Harrison is narrating the "Universe" stories adds to the authenticity of the story. It was perfect to hear Hank, Bridgett, Delany, and so many other voices again.

The writing was no let down either. I felt truly, flawlessly, and authentically immersed in Nocturne Falls, just as if Kristen Painter had written it herself. Bravo to Alethea Kontis for providing Nocturne Falls Fans such a great read! This Greek girl also enjoyed reminders of being called koukla by her YiaYia and the love of Greek Mythology.

Interesting

nocturne-falls, no-gratuitous-erotica, urban-fantasy, romance

An excellent addition to the Nocturne Falls Universe, a place where it is Halloween every day, and the supernaturals are hiding in plain sight. This couple is on the younger side and each has some hurdles to overcome. The publisher's blurb gives clues but can't begin to prepare you for all the laughs and angst. No spoilers here, just go ahead and enjoy!
Delighted to find the audiobook on sale, and B.J. Harrison gives his usual delight performance as narrator!

A great story about friendship and love.

I really emjoyed this story because the characters were relatable and the situations that Kai and her friends get into are heart warming and enjoyable. I like the way the characters learned more about themselves and each other by working together.

Winner! Will be a repeat listen.

I'd already read this in paper and loved it, but wanted to hear how the narrator brought it to life. The sweet Southern charm of Belle, the feline aloofness of Owen, the moneyed disdain of Heather, along with the rest of the cast are PERFECT! *****

Would have liked more information, it should be about three hours longer

Love the storyline except it’s missing information for example, when the lady is talking to Quinn about having a meeting with her husband Hank, that meeting never shows up here in the book. It would’ve been nice to see the original characters come together with the newer characters a little more, there has to be a legal way for Christian painter to figure out a way to combine her thoughts with these new writers
