This is a crazy world. Cal is Chosen. He is different from all the other Hunters in his abilities and his significance. But one thing Cal will never be is normal. Raised mainly by his father, his boundaries were pushed, his limits tested and the struggle remained. The tension between the two of them was high and Cal just didn’t know how to deal with it anymore.
That’s when he took the job. Mostly out of spite, kind of out of convenience. His job wasn’t to protect people. He didn’t have a greater good. He just had to slay the beast. It wasn’t easy work, but the pay out was always rewarding.
There was something else he left behind when he left the Hunters. He left Gabby. But a moment of fate brought them back together. His sweet and beautiful Gabby. Would she still be mad at him because of the way things ended? They were not involved in all those years, but there was always something special between the two of them. When the two of them reconnect, everything shifts in Cal’s world and I mean everything.
Learning that things were not always as they seemed and searching for answers while struggling to hold on to his one constant in life was going to be his biggest test.
Now, I get that I have pretty much told you this is completely paranormal and all, but it is so much more. It has steam and passion too. It is not lacing in the romance department that is for sure. There are the number of women that he used and the number of women that meant nothing to him except a means to an end. But there was nothing quick and easy about getting lost in the one person that you know you are destined to be with.
This book is told from Cal’s perspective which I really enjoyed. It was not only his words, but his thoughts. It was told as if he were actually sitting there telling you the story. I embraced a males perspective in this book where as most times I read what the men are saying and thinking in books and I think to myself, I don’t know one single man who would say something like that, but with Cal telling the story, I could envision a guy telling the story from his point of view. This is something that is not easily done in books and I was very impressed with the author’s ability to do this and do it well.
Jennifer Ortiz has done a great job with this book and I really enjoyed the story despite my original apprehensions of the paranormal part of it. It was a great read and kept me on my toes waiting to find out what was going to happen next with the crazy creatures from the underworld and the love of Cal’s life, Gabby. I am looking forward to reading more of Jennifer’s work and I am looking forward to more of this series!
This story has it all...drama, fun, sex, action..and I loved it. Jennifer Ortiz did an amazing job on this book and I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out!!!
My favorite character in this story is Simone. She is honest, brutal, beautiful and respects Cal. Her friendship means a lot to Cal and is reciprocated with a relationship of sorts. After a falling out, they find their way back to each other. Honesty is the truest form of friendship in this book since truth seems hard to find. My least favorite character are Steven and Isaiah. In my opinion, both characters lacked something. The author has made wonderful, complex characters that convey emotion well. I was captivated and drawn into the story after Cal realized that he wanted something more than to remain with the other Hunters.
I recommend this novel because it was an interesting read. This book would probably be considered Fantasy/Paranormal since it does embrace different types of monsters, angels, demons, shamans and possession. There is explicit language, violence and sexual content within these pages; therefore, I would say that it targets an adult audience. I have rated this story with five stars due to the creativity. It is well-written and in Cal’s point of view. I am interested to wait and find out what the second of this series holds since there is a slight cliff-hanger. It leaves you satisfied but still a desire to read more about Cal’s new adventures as a super-hero.
