The same can be said of The Ninth Hunter, which proved to be another unique tale, and one which I thoroughly enjoyed reading and would highly recommend.
Ms. Hub has taken a Ghost Hunter, Daniel Barrow and achieved something which is very difficult to do. She has made a cold-hearted murderer - for whom killing people is a way of life and a task which he has been trained to do with no regard for the humans he's killing - and made him a sympathetic character. This is no easy task, and whilst initially, Daniel Barrow seems cold in both heart and actions, almost from the very beginning Ms. Hub provides him with small sparks of humanity, which make the reader believe that perhaps he's redeemable and there is much more to this man than initially appears.
Things really begin to get interesting when one of his targets, Faye, becomes the only person who can help him untangle the twisted web of his life - and the interaction between these two characters is done both sympathetically and believably. Ms. Hub shows us how Faye becomes involved and makes it seem like a natural, and required progression that these two people work with one another towards a common goal. The fact that Faye fears and distrusts Daniel is dealt with in a realistic manner and if you are searching for a unique, interesting read, you won't be disappointed by 'The Ninth Hunter'.
Anyhow, Daniel's current target, Faye, survives his attempt to kill her (thanks to her ghosts) and throws a wrench into things. In his attempt to remedy the situation, he and Faye get closer and he eventually tells her everything. Daniel is betrayed by his "teacher" who has been keeping information and truth from him, and sends more hunters after the duo (which is another betrayal, as he had convinced Daniel they he was the only one).
I'm not a fan of romance novels, but this was subtle and realistic and I actually found myself rooting for them. The plot was good, it was a new twist on the supernatural and ghost stories. It started well and held my interest throughout. The characters were interesting and easy to care about or dislike or sympathise with. Great editing. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
The plot was truly unpredictable but it was the characters I loved the most. Daniel starts off cold and disconnected from the world but as he joins forces with Faye, she slowly brings him back to life. Faye enters the story with timid uncertainty but quickly becomes a tough heroine, and together these characters make this book an unforgettable read. A gripping read.
I had a lot of sympathy for the hero Daniel and loved watching his evolution from the empty, ruthless shell he starts the story as. But I have a real soft spot for Faye, who is brave and generally awesome, despite her lack of knowledge about what the hell is going on in her world! The characters are believable and relatable.
I honestly didn't know how this book was going to end and I read it fast because I couldn't wait to find out! I'm not going to spoil it but the end was very satisfying :) FIVE STARS
