Jake and Cal Gillant are half-human, half-Anointed. Their mother is from the dimension of Karavel, where they were raised and trained alongside the other Anointed warriors. However, after an initiation gone wrong leaves Cal nearly dead, their mother sends them to the human realm to stay with their father, Henry.

While in the mortal dimension, they put their training to use and close up hell holes created by escaping hellhounds. They also fight demons and other creatures that most people think only exist in storybooks. One night, Cal drops a bombshell on Jake right before they to go on a mission with their father. Jake is ready for the distraction of what is supposed to be an easy sweep and destroy. However, the boys are in for much more than they initially bargained for. Not only are their lives in danger, but those of the unsuspecting humans who live around them.

So wow! Not only is this book deceptively short (hey, I read it on my Kindle) but it is uber fast-paced and bursting at the seams with all kinds of action. Most of the story revolves around the mission gone wrong; however, James gives just enough information at the beginning to hint that there is much more to come. The epilogue frames the larger story and definitely had me asking the question, when is the next one out? (The good news, I don't have to wait as it was released on September 7th.)

For such a short and action-packed tale, James manages to craft her characters fully. I had a very clear idea of who Jake and Cal were, even Henry. There isn't much time to flesh them out, yet James manages to do so. Despite all the action, the strength of the relationships between the brothers and their father shines through.

Although a little on the short side, I loved this book. It was crammed full of action and male bonding between brothers and their father. Jake and Cal reminded me of a younger Sam and Dean but different in their own ways, too. I didn't notice any problems with grammar, spelling, etc. It seems to have been well edited. I've found a new author to read and can't wait to delve into the second book of this series.

Demon trackers - I was intrigued and kind of excited. This is a solid first book to a new series. I thought it was on the short side, however, as it seemed to only cover one major event. The action was written in great detail and a few hours time took almost the entire book.

I liked the relationship between Jake and Cal, and then with their father. It was nice to see the men being caring toward each other and worrying and protecting each other - though one or the other was in so much peril at some point - it got a little on the tiresome side to constantly be worrying someone was going to become gremlin food.

There seems to be a lot of backstory that is not yet revealed to the reader and I suppose I will have to continue in the series to find the answers to questions I have about the boys' past.

This book was well-written, good details, good character development, and I became engaged in the story.

One thing I did not really like was how young the boys are - Cal is 16 and Jake is 19, and they are half-human and fighting horrible demons. I don't know why their ages bothered me - Jake not so much, but it bothered me that Cal was so young... Again, I'm not sure why - it just did.

Overall, I enjoyed this story - it is action-packed with lots of demon-butt-kicking. There is zero romance, but from the excerpt of the next book, there might be some on the horizon. I give the story 3.5 stars - I liked it, but I didn't love it. I would recommend it to anyone who like urban fantasy - lots of action, little romance. Thank you to author, CC James, for the chance to read and review this book. I will be checking out book two when that comes out.

Well, having worked in a similar though (mostly) non-paranormal profession that involved hunting down bad guys, with a book like this I tend to look toward action scenes to see if they fit what really can happen in the field. Descriptions were good and are easily visualized for those who may never have been in such situations before, but when you have been, however, details such as presented in "Demon Trackers" slow down what passes in milliseconds. You just don't get all of that, but then how many of the readers of this genre might have been out at three in the morning tracking an escaped felon?

At times, the dialogue seemed abrupt and awkward to me and since that did comprise a lot of the story, I felt the flow of the tale was interrupted. I would have appreciated more of a balance between it and narrative where background or crucial information might have been explained or shown instead of being told. Considering the main characters age, they are well represented, though I questioned why they were so young but maybe there is a reason that will be answered later in the series. Overall, The Anointed and its Demon Trackers are an interesting premise that leaves plenty of room for expansion.
