About L.J. Hayward

L.J. Hayward has been telling stories for most of her life. Granted, a good deal of them have been of the tall variety, but who’s counting? Parents and teachers notwithstanding, of course. These days, the vast majority of her story telling has been in an honest attempt to create fun and exciting ways of entertaining others (and making money).

As such, she is still a mad (always provoked!) scientist in a dungeon laboratory (it has no windows. Seriously, the zombie apocalypse could be going on outside and she’d have nary a clue) who, on the rare occasions she emerges into the light, does so under extreme protest and with the potential hazard of bursting into flames under the southeast Queensland sun.

About the Series: Night Call
An urban fantasy series.

Night Call follows the adventures of Matt Hawkins--warrior, psychic and vampire-slayer extraordinaire! His sidekick is Mercy Belique, a vampire femme fatale, trained by Matt to hunt her own kind. Together they'll take on just about anything, be it vampire, ghoul or werewolf.

Into their dangerous lives comes Erin McRea--ex-cop, PI and extremely tenacious. If anyone can unravel the tangled web of deceit, lies and misdirection around Matt and Mercy, she can. And she will.

Review by: Graeme Rodaughan on April 30, 2017 :
A supernatural murder mystery thriller, laced with assassins, vampires, ghouls, and the most seductively dangerous demons in this dimension or any other.

Matt Hawkins has to expand his repertoire beyond bad-ass monster kicker when he is asked to assist in the investigation of the murder of a talented physicist. Before he knows it, he's embroiled in the power plays of the political machinations of Hell and the immediate target of very powerful adversaries.

Even with the help of PI Erin McRae, and the lethal vampire Mercy, his survival and the future of the world are very much in doubt.

L.J. Hayward excels at finely drawn, nuanced characters, and tightly plotted stories. Always very entertaining. This book kept me up past midnight more than once, and for me (a slow reader), I raced through it.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone with a desire to read quality fantasy written by a talented author.

5 stars well earned.

Review by: Elizabeth Davies on Sep. 13, 2014 :
This book follow closely on from the first in the series, and I was not disappointed. I'd looked forward to this since reading the author's first novel 'Blood Work'.
The characters develop nicely, and although the plot is self-contained, I'm glad I read the first book.
I especially like the complexity of the love interest - I wanted them to get together so much, and yet I didn't! I'm not going to say why because I don't want to give anything away.
Amaya, the demon, was a surprise at the end - I thought her growing humanity to be intriguing. The only thing to give me a moments pause was that I thought demons were supposed to be immortal.
I will definitely be reading the next instalment.
