Review: Enter the Night by Maggie Berkley

Enter the Night by Maggie Berkley (Morgan Crowe Trilogy, #1)

Publisher: Red Rose Publishing
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Heat Rating: 3


Note: Not a Romance


"Be careful of who you trust."

Words of warning, something Morgan Crowe tended to ignore.
Born Morriganna nic Thulath over thousands of years ago in the ShadowedLands of the Immortal Sidhe, she was the leader of the Mor'sin'dar King's Battle Crows. Named the Morrigu, she was deadly, precise and vengeful.

Favored by her King, Morgan lived an unrestrained life until her temper forced him to remove her from the Courts. For years she lived among the humans, keeping an eye out on things Fae and waiting until the time her beloved King resends his decision and welcomes her back with open arms. But things have changed within the Sidhe lands, deaths occurred and old rumors abound. Unknowingly Morgan has become the object of revenge of a hateful Queen and a sadistic enemy from her past.

Now enters a Were, shape changers with the natural ability to take animal form and with his appearance comes temptation and love. But is he all that he seems? And is she willing to defy her society to find out if he is. For Morgan, her world tumbles around in a whirlwind until all hell breaks loose.

Angelique’s Review

If you love Celtic mythology, stories of the Fae, or just like a really awesome story, “Enter the Night” is the book for you. Ms. Berkley crafts a masterpiece that will have you begging for more (and wondering when Book Two will be out).

Morgan reminds me of a cross between Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake and Merry Gentry. She is a “tough as nails” assassin who finds herself in a precarious situation against her will. To save herself, she must watch everyone that she cares for die and go back into the world that cast her out.

The book has a fast pace with twists and turns you will not expect. The setting, characters, and plot are cleverly crafted in exquisite detail. The assassin scenes are grotesque, but not over the top.

I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series and hope Ms. Berkley knows that she scored another reader!
