About the Book

I am hunted.

A pawn in a vicious game.

The only way I can protect the ones I love…

…is to disappear.

Finally free of her father, Kaya has the one thing that keeps her heart beating—Luke.

Blissfully content in his arms, everything seems perfect…until their world is shattered by a deadly invasion. When an old ally comes to the rescue, Kaya wants none of it. She is devastated to learn the identity of her attacker, and that she must do something truly heartbreaking if she wants to save the ones she loves. Sacrificing everything and sinking into bottomless sorrow, Kaya finds solace in an unlikely friend—one who shows her a different kind of love, and helps her discover an inner strength she never thought possible.

A heart-pounding journey of self-discovery, Nocturne is the transformative second installment of the Nightmusic Trilogy by Heather McKenzie.

Reviewed by Melanie Newton
There are several murders and an attempted rape.
There is a fair amount of curse words in this book including several uses of the F word and repeated use of the word bitch.
There is sex in the book but it is neither detailed nor graphic. There is, however, an attempted rape.
There is underage drinking and adults drinking in the book. There is mention of adults smoking (mainly in descriptive terms - his voice sounded like he smoked a pack a day). Painkillers are taken - but not in an irresponsible way.
Supernatural Characters: There are no supernatural characters in this book.
Other: This is the second book in the series and the content is very similar to the first, with the exception that there should possibly be a trigger warning due to the attempted rape that is described.
