Review:

"Pouty, pale, and possessed by a curse, Eve Coffin is not a half-bad young lady on whom to hang a witchy new comic series. The Coffin family have been the mansion-dwelling patriarchs of their small New England town for centuries (no Yankee thriftiness for them). As a punk teenager, Eve rebels against her mother's expectations, except in one way: she doesn't mind carrying on the family tradition of witchcraft. A night of bad behavior (drinking, seducing her best friend's guy) in the haunted woods near her home turns dark and bloody when Eve tries to summon a spirit and, regrettably, succeeds. Ten years later, she's an ex-cop trying to put an end to the disappearances still perpetrated by the fiend she set loose. Kittredge (Nocturne City) has written a strong character in Eve, with her guilt-fueled anger and sarcasm, but her plotting is shaky and overly tangled. Miranda's (Tribes) vividly gothic art (black feathers are a powerful recurring motif) is highly original and keeps this spooky, smalltown, bad-girl melodrama from being just another retread of The Craft."

About the Author

Caitlin started writing novels at age 13. Her first was a Star Wars tie-in. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and the author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again. Her epic dark fantasy (thankfully) never saw the light of day but while she was struggling with elves and sorcerers she got the idea of writing a story about a werewolf who fought crime. Two years and many, many drafts later, she pitched Night Life to a bevy of agents and one of them, Rachel Vater, sold the series to St. Martin's. Caitlin collects comic books, print books, vintage clothes, and bad habits. She loves tea, loud music, the color black (especially mixed with the color pink) and ghost stories. She can drive a stick shift, play the violin and knows more English curses than American ones. Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats.
