I have read many paranormal crime/detective stories but I have never read one as well written as Demon Hunter. The creation of the paranormal world’s law enforcement agencies such as AoA, UoJ, and the Divine Syndicate based off of real world agencies gives them a realistic feel while meeting the supernatural potential. The plot is anything but the usual killer on the loose or evil villain looking to take over the world. It is complex, intricate, and suspenseful. I absolutely love how unpredictable the story is yet at the same time it follows a traditional formula for crime drama. My only complaint is the death of a character I adored and looked forward to learning more about! (Maybe this person could have their own back story….) Overall, this is an amazing beginning to what I hope will continue into an amazing series. While the author provided me a copy of this story, this review reflects my honest opinion. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
Mary Abshire has become one of my go-to authors for losing myself in a paranormal world and this first book in the Divine Justice series is just one more reason why. Excellent world building and an original premise combine with action, suspense, and intrigue to keep a reader turning pages. This fun twist on the vampire story has these creatures of the night defending mankind from demons. Strong leading ladies are always a good element and Anna certainly fits that description, but she also has a softer side that lends to an interesting contrast. In fact, I always find this author's characters interesting and this one is no different in that respect. The idiosyncrasies of each character - Anna's purple fuzzy socks, Glen's car, Victor's libido, etc - add that extra something that makes the characters believable and results in the reader becoming invested in what happens to them. Overall, Demon Hunter is a solid start to what promises to be another exciting series by this author. The fast pace and gripping story line, along with the compelling characters and witty dialogue, make for a book I couldn't put down.
