Night runner nearly ended up on the discard pile because it seemed to take too long to get going and because it just felt a little weird to begin with, like the author had started halfway down the first page and expected you to know what had come before. This soon smoothed out and Night runner turned out to be a good little read - a little mystery, a little thriller, a little twist on the vampire mythology, and although this was in the horror section that was only due to the vampires angle rather than any real homage to the vampire blood and gore (of which there was surprisingly nothing). It is not clear if there will be lots of other books in this series or if this is a shortlived series, but if you really enjoy a little light reading and enjoy someone with a little twist on the vampire mythology then you may enjoy this read as well.
