Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In her steamy follow-up to Surviving Demon Island, Burton introduces demon hunter Shay Pearson, a member of the Realm of Light, the good guys dedicated to keeping back the demon menace. She's on a mission in Sydney, Australia, to locate the Diavolo Diamond heir, sexy surfer and half-demon Nic Diavolo, and bring him back to agency headquarters by any means necessary; once there, Nic's to meet his brother, who will determine if Nic will band with the Realm or with their sinister enemy, the Sons of Darkness. Spotting him in nothing but low-slung board shorts, however, gives Shay other ideas—like, for instance, satisfying her lust for his rock-hard abs. Nic, meanwhile, is oblivious to the demonic forces within him, save for a recurring dream of long-taloned beasts clawing at his feet and worshiping him—dreams he begins to fear are visions of what's to come. Burton brings the heat, jazzing her otherworldly suspense plot with numerous passionate interludes, without letting the explosive good vs. evil saga flag. Hot sex, fierce battles and an impending sequel make this title worth hunting down. (Sept.)

This book is fast paced with an engrossing storyline, interesting characters, vivid descriptions and erotic romance.

If you've read the 1st one, then so much won't surprise you, but these books have it all---good story, good "romance" and leave you waiting for the one.

Nic Diavolo, doesn't know that his often absent father is a demon, and not just any demon but a demon lord and one of the Son's of Darkness that rule the demons. He does know that he has disturbing dreams about monsters, monsters that seem to want something from him.

Shay Pearson's assignment is to find out just how much Nic knows about his heritage and whether or not he is or will let the demon side rule. Shay belongs to the Keepers of Light, the good guys who are trying to prevent the demons from committing crimes on Earth. Shay is drawn to Nic both sexually and emotionally making this one of the hardest things she has ever had to do. In addition Shay is having visions about Nic, dark visions.

Add in a brother Nic doesn't remember, a black diamond that both the Keepers and the Sons are desperate to find, and evil forces that want to compel Nic to recognize his demon side and take his place as a demon lord and you have a hot sexy romance with loads of exciting adventure.

This is a great book, better than the first. The chemistry between Nic and Shay was out of this world. I love the way Jaci develops her characters, they pop off the pages and take on a life of their own and I just plain liked Shay better than I did Gina from Surviving Demon Island.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Hunting The Demon" is the sequel to "Surviving Demon Island", a series about a group of people, part of the Realm of Light, who fight against demons (led by the Sons of Darkness) in a traditional fight between good and evil. The first thing about this book to note was that it wasn't necessary to have read "Surviving Demon Island" and in fact the backstory was delivered very well in this book, not feeling over-clunky as can happen and not patchy so that the reader gets confused. I hadn't read the first book but I always knew what was going on whilst reading this book, which is unusual.

Secondly, in this crowded genre of paranormal romance it seems that sex is usually more important than plot in the recent releases. Fortunately this book focuses far more on plot (although there is of course some sex) and, to some extent, on characterisation. Our heroine, Shay Pearson, is part of the demon hunting team and is sent to get close to the improbably-named Nic Diavolo to find out whether he, a half-demon, is evil or good. His brother Derek is a member of the demon hunting group but he and Nic were separated when Nic was eight and Nic was subsequently raised by his demon father, Ben. Shay and Nic get on well but within a day she has to lure him to be kidnapped, which of course means Nic feels betrayed by her. He does his own bit of betrayal subsequently which hurts Shay and from these two significant experiences they begin to form some kind of a relationship of trust.

There's a little more to Shay than meets the eye as she's been having visions her whole life which tend to come true. Shay has visions of Nic becoming head of the demons with the help of the Black Diamond, something that the demon hunters and the demons are both searching.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Less of a paranormal/special ops romance, Hunting the Demon also has less of the demon hunting action that made the first book such fun a synthesis of two genres. Additionally by spending time to develop the 'next at bat' couple, Ryder and Angelique, author Jaci Burton ends up weakening the story between our stars here, Nic and Shay.

We met Shay is in the last book,Demon Hunters: Surviving Demon Island (Book 1), . Shay is gorgeous, blond and though she has the drawl, she's no southern belle. She's psychic and collects daggers - oh and she hunts demons. Shay is drawn to Nic even before she meets him, just from seeing him at a distance, he tickles her 'spidey senses'. Everything about Nic is hot. He's bronze, fit and rich, the only drawback is, since he's Derek's brother (from the last book), he's half demon. So it's Shay's job to act as bait, to flirt with him so that the Realm of Light's demon hunting team can kidnap him and find out if Nic's already gone over to the dark side and succumbed to his inner demon.

Shay and Nic sizzle but have a hard time getting close, because they keep betraying each other. First Shay, with her role in Nic's kidnapping. Then Nic, who seduces Shay and makes a real connection with her - only to ruin the afterglow by leaving her tied to the bed so that he can escape. I had hard time with how easily these two forgave each other. Just a couple sultry looks and then they're back all over each other like nothing ever happened. This made them seem shallow and not so smart.

By Christy J. Hawkes on September 27, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This second book in the Demon Hunters series is as hot, suspenseful and action packed as the first book. I was hooked from the first page ~ after waiting rather impatiently to get my greedy little hands on this book in the first place - I limited my fluid intake and read the whole book in one sitting - all 417 pages. The members of the Ream of Light that we met and fell in love with in the first book are all back as they try to convince Derek's brother, Nic just who is friends and enemies - the Sons of Darkness are. This book is fast paced with an engrossing storyline, interesting characters, vivid descriptions and erotic romance. Next summer can't come soon enough for the next book in the series, The Demon's Touch with Ryder and Angelique's story.
