This review is from: Death's Hand (The Descent Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Demon fighter, Elise Kavanagh, and her mentor, James Faulkner, thought they could retire from fighting the nightmares that most people only believe exist in fiction. But those nightmares aren't willing to stay in Hell where they belong.
But a few of the demons that Elise and James have sent back to Hell are looking for a second chance to return and payback Elise and James for their interference.
When a little girl is demonically possessed, Elise knows if she is dragged back into the life of a demon hunter, she won't be able to leave again.
I want to point out that from the description I originally thought this was a husband and wife team. We learn from the start that Elise is only 16 when she retires as a demon slayer and that James was her guardian and her "shield."
This is an intriguing story which I raced through in one day. It appears to be the first in a descent series and there were some questions left unanswered, like exactly what happened to Elise's parents and what's with the gloves.
There was a lot going on in this story including climatic battles with fiends and zombies. I was impressed that Elise got up again from many of these battles and kept jumping back into the fight.
It was well worth the read and I am intrigued enough to continue with the next book due out in the spring of 2012.
