“A truly remarkable literary piece you would love from beginning to end.”—Bibliophile Angel Reviews on Hunters’ Watch Brigade: Initiation
A demigod’s work is never done . . .
All monster hunter Samantha Silverton wants is a little R&R. She and her sexy partner/cat shifter Max have a week off in the city that never sleeps, and she intends to enjoy it. But before she can pack her suitcase, she’s caught up in the middle of a wicked game—a smartphone app driven scavenger hunt that’s bringing all the big, bad supernaturals to NYC to play. The bad part? The game was the brainchild of Alex Van Dam—Sam’s first love. What’s worse? Sam will have to play the game alone.
Maximillion Ra hasn’t quite got a handle on his unique shifter magic yet. He’s in love with Sam, but if he’s ever going to be any good to her, he has to face his family’s curse. But how can he leave Sam now, especially with her old flame in the picture?
Alex Van Dam isn’t interested in who wins his game. He just wants to find the final prize—an ancient Greek relic. Once he has it, he’ll use the artifact’s magic to control all the supernaturals in Manhattan, starting with the Hunters’ Watch Brigade.
Only Sam stands in his way. And without Max by her side, even the monster hunting daughter of Poseidon has to wonder if she stands a chance . . .

Samantha , a demi-god is a member of the Hunters Watch Brigade. They protect people including paranorms from evil. Vampires, demi -,gods, shifters and Gods are aware of what's going on. Some wizards and witches and other paranormal go bad especially when a prize is involved. Someone has decided that playing this game kind of like Pokemon would be fun but the prizes are so much more dangerous. Max is Sam's boyfriend who watches her back and is a child of Bast and cat shifter. The team get together and try to find out what the game is and try to stop it before anyone can get hurt or killed. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.
My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! Love this series! I will be buying the whole series when I can! The cover is beautiful and eye catching…at least to me it is! This is the 2nd book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and violence. I highly recommend reading the books in order, so you understand the world and characters. This is an amazing world, and you don’t want to miss any of it! I love how feisty Sam is, and she is always wanting to do things her way. Sam and Max get into some trouble with Shade where Shade places all the blame on Max. His powers are still wonky, and he needs to deal with the family curse. Max likes to protect everyone, and he loves Sam. There is all sorts of adventure in this book. It is a page-turner that I couldn’t put down. I love books like this that are packed with action where you never know what will happen next. I don’t want to give anything away, so read this series! I highly recommend to any paranormal fan because this book has it all! There is magic, witches, vamps, shifters, gods & goddess (both Greek and Egyptian), demigods, and a lot of awesomeness! I can’t wait for the next book!!
Hunters' Watch Brigade: The Game is the second book in the Hunters' Watch Brigade series, and we reunite with Sam, Max, Shade, Cyn, Helmina, Miss Daisy, Tex, and the rest of the crew. We start off in the thick of the action as Sam and Max try to stop a thieving wizard. It turns out he is just the start, as a game is being played that could have serious consequences. On top of that, Max is struggling. He only has six weeks from his shift to show his allegiance to Bast in the form of a vision quest. Until he does that, his magic isn't all it could be, and it puts Sam in danger. This is a great continuation of the first book. Sam and Max actually spend much of this one apart from each other, but that just makes it all the better when they reunite. I would love to know more about Max's fourth level, but it looks like the third will just have to do. Sam misses Max, but has to learn how to work without him in the meantime. I loved her going to Olympus, and speaking with Artemis. I thought that was perfectly written, just how I would imagine the Greek Gods playing! As usual, there were no editing or grammatical errors that jolted me from the story. With great characters and excellent world building, I found the pacing to be well timed, with the transition from one scene to the next smooth. I have no hesitation in recommending either this book, or the series so far. Can't wait to read more. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
