In West Philadelphia born and raised hunting sluagh and fae is where Conor spent most of his days.....Ok in all seriousness this was a good paranormal story.
Conor Malone was a hunter. Born and raised this was his only purpose in life. To find the baddies and take them down. Raised by his father Patrick Malone who was rather rough and tumble and callous. He raised his son and his best friends son Liam with one purpose. Conor seemed to be in touch with his emotions and thought we only take down those who are harming us and the city around us. While Liam and Patrick had a more personal vendetta. One day Conor meets the beautiful Brenna. Her raven hair and snarky attitude draw him in. He also learns some secrets about Brenna that goes against all the family code.Someone is kidnapping residents and they come together to solve this mystery. They clash but learn there is a traitor in the mix and decisions must be made.
This book was a good paranormal story at its core. Lots of mythical beings and spells and chants. The author truly knows her lore and at times creeped me out. Yet it was funny and there was a love story. Which brings me to my one issue with this book was the sex scene. It felt like it was disjointed. Things truly happened out of sequence and made me go back to make sure I read it right. It seemed like an afterthought after the book was finished and personally felt it could have been left out. All in all this was a good book and I can't wait to see where this story goes.
Conor is a hunter who has vanquished creatures of all kinds. Raised to be ruthless, he is expected to kill enemy fae on sight. But when a chance encounter puts him in the company of a lovely half-fae, he feels more inclined to kiss her than kill her. And after learning of her need for assistance, Conor finds himself playing knight-in-shining-armor to the troubled Brenna.
Brenna knew that the hunter would discover her secret sooner or later but the risk was worth it in order to get help in recovering her stolen amulet. And after witnessing Conor's soft side in regards to an injured canine, she can't help but wonder if this hunter might be the exception to the rule.
Even though a hunter and half-fae can play nice with each other, doesn't mean that everyone will approve of the new partnering. Conor's family despises the blood that runs through Brenna's veins and they aren't the only things that are a danger to her. Banding with a resourceful witch, the pair take on the most vile creatures to threaten the city and all that live inside it.
I flew through this book in a single sitting so it definitely held my attention. The supernatural beasts and inhabitants of the city in the story were unique and interesting. The plot held some betrayal and trickery, along with quite a bit of action. At times, I did find the book to be wordy. Everything was described in full (and sometimes gory) detail. While I don't mind some telling, I also find myself skimming long paragraphs. But the dialogue and romance definitely furthered the plot along at a satisfying pace.
The leading lad and lady were great characters and well fleshed out. The trust happened quite quickly but the actual romance was slower to brew and when the inevitable bedroom action occurred, it was fireworks all around. I thoroughly rooted for this pairing and hoped to see their happy ending despite all of the obstacles in their way.
A good and solid start to the series. I am definitely curious to see how Liam redeems himself in the next installment! Four suns!

Hmmm. I wonder if I used the word "great" enough in this review? Actually, probably not.
Oh, yes: definitely (great-ly) recommended.
