Okay. So everyone left reading this review has already read the first book, right? Good. You totally need to go get a copy of the second book as so many of those dangling loose end questions get answered in this one. Not all of them, not exactly, but enough that it's so satisfying to slap your forehead and say aha! I knew it! Which of course I'm not going to give away here cuz that would be a spoiler and we all hate spoilers. Back to the review.
Gin Crawford is a demon huntress... The demon huntress of the series subtitle. She's gone from an abused and crazy childhood to her current vaguely twenty-something semi-stable existence as an emergency room nurse. And empath. And the twin of a ghost whisperer with whom she shares a close psychic connection.
And, oh yeah, now a Justinian which is a fancy name for demon hunter, and with an officially assigned Guardian to watch over her and heal her. A Guardian who is sizzling hot and who's every touch sends waves of desire shooting every which way. But of course she has to try and ignore the obvious connection between them because, after all, she has to work with him.
Complications abound beyond her growing attraction to her guardian, Smythe. Like the fact that there's a Fear demon on the loose that seems hell bent on not only killing Gin but wreaking havoc on the entire city. And the fact that some of the other Guardians in the Agency aren't in the Gin Crawford fan club.
But do they hate her enough to actually try to kill her?
Told in first person narration from Gin's perspective, the story is a snarky, fast-paced romp that kept me reading straight through the afternoon until my family complained that dinner was hours late. Oops. Karilyn Bentley has a masterful way of keeping the reader hooked and reading, needing just one more question answered. One more chance at catching the bad guy. One more chance for Gin to look deep into Smythe's eyes and... Ahem, yeah, still hoping for that one.
If you like your paranormal adventures with a little sizzle, a side of snark and a big dose of sass, check out Karilyn Bentley's Demon Huntress series.
Book One is Demon Lore (although I have to say I don't really like the cover of that one, I'm still trying to figure it out. So not in character for Gin.) and Book Two is Demon Kissed, and yes, the title is prophetic, but Gins story is not over, not by a long shot. Here's hoping Book Three doesn't take more than a year to come out!
I get I’m supposed to kill demons and minions in this new gig. Ridding the word of evil makes me feel like a superhero. Most of the time. But the thought of meeting with Samantha and Smythe’s father, David, an agency bigwig, tenses a muscle between my brows.
The Justitia fight with Gin to kill demons and minions, by adding a sword to the back of Gin’s hand, ready to kill minions. Demons are much harder to kill, but Gin is expected to kill those two. There is one demon that Justitia is scared of and one she seems to be friends with. It’s almost like Gin has gained a new conscious, as Justitia settles more and more into Gin’s nerves and physical body.
I’m too fascinated with the incoming demon to pay attention to the huddle of brown suits, but Smythe mumbles something to them about it being cooler in the hall. The black blog of demon energy grows into a pulsing tumor of death by the time the detectives leave the lab. My Justitia longs to join them, which is not exactly confidence inspiring.
Who the hell was this creature to cause a demon-fighting bracelet to tuck tail and hide?
Heat and the stench of sulfur explode into the room as the demon crawls through the red gash in the air, landing on the ground in a crouch. A wave of malice coats the air inducing a strong urge to flee.
The hair on my arms stands straight. Sweat drops down my back, beading my spinal column in the cylinder of ice. I want to run yet am frozen to the ground, prey caught in the open.
Just typing these words, sets my heart pounding. Aren’t the author’s descriptive detail of the scene providing all the rush you need to continue reading? I simply love the way she expresses Gin’s feelings, her surroundings and the power of fear which descends upon us.
I was caught up in this snarky, sass-mouthed heroine’s life, having been rather routine, to living a life she couldn’t possibly have imagined. Aidan Smythe, protector of ‘her kind’ had a self-esteem problem which made him an ‘iffy’ kind of guardian. Who needs that when you’re fighting demons?
It didn’t help Gin when Aidan touched her, she zinged with electricity—her body ready to do anything to curl around his strong physic. Gin fought this just as hard as she fights demons. And what is this thing with the demon who kissed her? He keeps coming back telling her the only thing to fear, is fear itself? Why is she drawn to him? Why does she want to run the other way? Such mixed feelings, keep the reader as jumpy as she is.
If you are in to snarky humor with paranormal settings, this series is a must. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed joining forces with Gin, Justitia, and Aidan.
