Book one in this series was recently highlighted from BN and I am glad that it was. What a great little read. The plot is entertaining, Jill, the main character is very fun. If you like books on witches and things that go bump in the night...but is not horror. You will enjoy this book.

Jill Kismet is a Hunter dedicated to overseeing the welfare of the citizens of Santa Cruz, protecting them from things that go bump in the night - things the police can't handle. Her companion and back up is a were cougar named Saul, and her constant nemesis is a hellbreed named Pericles. He seems to have something special in mind for Jill, but as yet, neither Jill nor we readers are quite sure what. Jill is a tough, kick-ass heroine, and there's plenty of action. The author is a good story-teller and I really appreciate her ability to make the reader care about the emotional lives of her main characters. I came to this series after reading the Dante Valentine novels (which I preferred), and my main criticism is that the author has become very repetitive. Both Dante and Jill nearly die at least three times per book (even the injuries are the same - crushed ribs, knocks on the head, a crushed throat), so by the time the final confrontation between good and evil arrives, it's pretty anti-climatic. Even many phrases of dialogue occur repeatedly through the series as though lifted from a template with no effort to even rephrase. It's too bad, because at times the author comes up with striking visuals and emotionally wrenching moments. I'm giving up on this series, however, because she doesn't seem to care about developing unique characters that change and grow. My impression is that Ms. St. Crow has a lot more potential than she's willing to show. Because so much of the material is a rehash, I'm only giving this book a 2.
