This is a solid 4 star read. I'm actually surprised by how much I liked this book. I love reading about half demons in a fictional earth in the present day and this book just hit the spot. Don't even get my started on the plots twists.
In the beginning, with Muse running back to her so called demon kind-of-not-boyfriend-king-dude was very annoying. The one thing the got me irritated with it was that she KNEW he was dangerous and probably wanted her head on a stick and yet she kept trusting him. She should have HUGE trust issues with the type of life she's been dealt. Every time she even thought about Akil it was like all rational thought flew out the metaphorical window. Backbone, where are you?!
I've decided that I'm Switzerland when it comes to picking a team in this book/series. Sure, Stefan is the obvious choice, but I just can't get over the fact that he f***ed Muse over the WHOLE book. He misled the heroine and the reader by default. To say the least, that hurts. On the other hand, I would never, in my right mind, pick Akil. If you've read the book, do you even have to ask? He's King evil incarnate (literally) with no redeeming qualities, period.
That ending cuts very deeply. I almost cried. It was THAT heart wrenching. After getting slapped upside the head with plot twists every five pages during the WHOLE book I still didn't see that ending coming. Really, Stefan? You just had to go and protect her like that?
"Stefan was right when he said you don't want to make an enemy of me. If I can kill my demon owner, I can certainly kill you."
"You were leading me right into the lion's den."
"The convenient 'gentleman's agreement between demons' excuse."
Aimee Easterling reliably delivers fun shifter stories with exciting plots. Huntress Born is the first volume in her Wolf Legacy series, which is a spinoff of her Wolf Rampant Trilogy but can definitely be enjoyed alone.
I found Ember a charming heroine. I loved how she tried to solve so many of her problems with baked goods and was always guessing at what someone's favorite dessert would be. I liked Sebastien too, though I feel like we haven't really gotten a chance to know him very well yet. My main complaint with this book is that besides our main character, I felt like I didn't get to know or understand the other characters as well as I would have liked, so their actions didn't always make sense.
This was a relatively quick read that effortlessly captured and held my interest. The pacing was good and the plot was exciting. However, while I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't always an easy read. There are a couple of scenes featuring sexual assault, and while the text is never too graphic, it could be triggering for some readers. The story also ended much more abruptly than I was expecting, so keep that in mind if you dislike cliffhanger endings. Fortunately, Huntress Bound (Wolf Legacy Book 2) and the remaining two books of the series are already available.
Huntress Born by Aimee Easterling
This first book in Ember’s crusade to find her elusive brother was interesting, entertaining and amusing with the beginning of an adventure that kept me chuckling at each moment. Armed with her cupcakes, her smart deductions and strong alpha traits, Ember was decided to fulfill her mission and return, unharmed, to her pack. Strong willed but at the same time yearning for her home-pack, she felt Wolfie’s direct line was not helping her. When things got complicated with strange events that didn’t pair with wolf ways, her fate become an uncertain one. Very interesting story with a witty and funny protagonist in her first adventure far away from her home pack. Liked the twists in the story that kept me interested all the time and left me very intrigued. Adventure, mystery, drama, suspense, some violence and romance.

1. Huntress born. Aimee Easterling. 1st of series Wolf Legacy (4 total). Werewolf/human leaves home territory lloking for brother. Good story but ends on cliff hanger which is frustrating.
2. Beyond the Veil. Pippa da Costa. 1st of series The Veil (5 total). Half human half demon hybrid on journey of self discovery. Reasonably good.
3. Justice calling. Annie Bellet. 1st of series 20 sided sorceress (10 total). A sorceress in hiding, hiding her abilities to stay under the radar but events dictate otherwise. Good but very short. Seems like just intro to the series.
4. Getting Wilde. Jenn Stark. 1st of series Immortal Vegas (10 total). Excellent. Heroine is bright, competent and sassy. One of the few that I would consider reading the rest of the series-& they are relatively cheap too.
5. Wolves. C Gockel. 1st of series I bring the fire (8 total). Norse mythology, Loki story. Good.
6. Empowered agent. Dale Ivan Smith. 1st of series The empowered (total 5). Good story, abbout how people get trapped in situations.
I am looking forward to reading the other books in this set.
I knew one author, the rest were new to me. I will be seeking out some of them.
Definitely worth reading.
