A violent encounter with a dark force determined to put an end to Elle's existence summons her protector, who
explains her birthright, and why the underworld wants her dead. Only thing is, being a demon hunter carries its own price which will cost Elle more than she ever expected to pay.
What a great kick-off to an adventurous new series! I loved this story, loved the heroine's sweetness and the strength, and skin, she is forced to grow into when tragedy strikes. This story is an engaging read that moves quickly, a must-read for fans of paranormal / young adult reads from a bright new voice. 4.5 stars, and bring on Book 2!
I really enjoyed this paranormal story. The beginning was full of suspense. A mysterious being wanted to kill the main character, Elle, as he watched her across the street. Soon, readers found out that the villain was named Pyro. The story switched between Elle and Pyro’s third-person point of views. There were no chapters, only scene breaks, which fit this short novella.
Elle became a demon hunter with the help of Tagas. The setting was in Los Angeles, which I thought was pretty cool. It was nice to see LA in a different light, instead of being superficial and only about celebrities. I really liked Elle and K.D.’s friendship, and the love scene between Elle and her boyfriend Brandon was cute and very sensual.
My favorite lines were: 1) He held her tightly in comfort for long moments in the darkness, the moon and stars in the clear night sky their only witness. 2) Her lips twisted in a private, cruel smile as her eyes settled on Brandon. 3) Hell would come to fear the name Elle Connor. 4) “Not feeling sorry for myself, just stating the facts.”
There was a lot of telling, which was to be expected because the story was a short novella–only 44 pages. Readers were told how much Elle loved Brandon instead of seeing it play out for awhile. Readers were told about the training Elle was going through instead of really seeing it on the pages. The telling didn’t distract from the story though; it just made the scenes move faster. I appreciated this quick read.
The story was full of conflict and tense moments. The demons Pyro and Cascadia really, really, really hated Elle and Tagas. For some scenes, I jumped out of my seat because Pyro was a very intelligent and worthy opponent. That end of the party scene really touched my heart, and I loved the twist regarding her best friend.
I RECOMMEND this book to read.
I enjoyed the author’s writing style. Though this is a short story the author took the time to paint vivid settings that made it easy to picture the Los Angeles scene. The setting details flowed with the story and gave hints of visuals such as ‘the late summer sun low in the west was setting’, and such descriptive and thought provoking details with word description as ‘black velvet sky overhead’.
The plot is interesting and kept my attention. It was just the right amount of high school life, romance and action. Elle is a believable character and her sweet personality is one that won me over. Elle is a senior in high school living a normal teen life until she is approached by Pyro. Tagas is there to save her and also help her fulfill training to become a demon hunter. While her friends are going off to college Elle knows that her future now is different than those of her friends. I enjoyed the relationship between Elle and Brandon McGovern. Brandon cares about Elle and makes plans to keep in touch with Elle while away at college. After a party things change and Elle comes in contact with demon Cascadia. The training Elle has received has come in handy. Elle has grown stronger in strength and in knowledge. She is able to hold her own. Elle is young and she is also a character that I admire. Her home life may not be the best and now she knows her purpose is to be a demon hunter; she embraces that she is different.
With a personal vow to become the best demon hunter and make all demons suffer I am excited and looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.

The lead character in this book is Elle and she finds out that she is a demon hunter and an angel of some sort helps her become the best demon hunter she can be. Tagas is watching over her and helps her when she needs it. But she is to be tested and he can not help. The demon that is trying to kill her is Pyro and he goes to some really underhanded things to try to kill her which is expected by a demon. Elle grows stronger and more confident in her abilities throughout the book and I like that she is human but still a kick butt demon hunter. She has the feelings of the human but they can get really bad and she needs to learn how to focus her rage.
I hope there will be a book two in the near future because I can't wait to see where this demon hunting will take her.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
