About the Author
A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. This award-winning author is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way.

Now, the reviews I read didn’t exactly make me feel like I was going to be stepping into an epic read. Surprisingly though, with my expectations low, I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, she’s obsessed with partying, sex and booze, but, she’s also 20-years-old. My expectations of finding a mature, smart and moralistic 20-year-old are pretty low. After meeting this 20-year-old, I’m not surprised she hadn’t found herself.
OK, I admit, she didn’t exactly show herself in the best light when I first met her, but as the story went on, she grew on me. When all the pieces had been laid out, it was clear to see that she had been trying to find her focus/path/destiny.
If only that damn ring landed on her brother’s finger instead of her own.
Nava is probably the worst candidate to put up as a demon hunter. She’s flighty, silly, reckless and determined to put her brother in her place. He was supposed to wear the damn ring, not her. He had been training for this position for years, she had other plans. He knew what a demon looked like, she didn't even know there were so many types. He had the bits and pieces between his legs to make him a brother, she was definitely not a brother.
I found the storyline really interesting. Such a fascinating concept that demon hunters have been around for centuries and were chosen from birth to be a part of the Brotherhood of David. It was a very old-fashioned concept that only men could be demon hunters and only male Rabi’s could be in charge. It was obvious that Nava was never supposed to have magic or the abilities she possessed.
Sometimes, plans change. It takes a little while for the brothers to warm up to the idea of a female in their midst. They will push her to her limits to see if she has what it takes and make her prove herself. Nava has to stand on her own two feet and use her abilities or she will die. At first, it was a little hard to watch Nava struggle, but deep down, I knew it was for her own good to be tested.
Look, I admit, there’s a lot of sexy times (more thoughts than times) in this story but it wasn’t the worst I’ve read. Yes, Nava does think about sex a lot, but I kind of expect that from a 20-year-old young and pretty girl. Her thoughts and dialogue were pretty immature, but, again, she’s 20, I expected it.
If I had one complaint about Nava, it was that she wouldn’t consider a relationship with Rohan. I think that’s my 43-year-old head thinking that because I can see Rohan’s potential. It’s easy to forget that most young girls aren’t looking for the love of their lives when they’re just out of school. I'm still hoping that he will get past the safety barriers around her heart.
If you’re looking for a lighthearted, funny and sexy read where magic and demon hunting plays a major part in the storyline, The Unlikeable Demon Hunter might be perfect for you. I will definitely be going on in the series…soon…ish.
Nava is young and snarky, but as the story unfolds, I found myself feeling sorry for her. Imagine being second fiddle all your life to your twin brother. It explains some of her behavior but as the story progressed we begin some of better qualities and the makings of a quick-thinking kick-ass demon hunter. Granted, she isn’t at all happy with the situation and is more concerned about her next O, then fighting demons.
The girl marches to her own drum, which causes some friction between her and her leader; former rock star Rohan Mitra. Too bad, Rohan is just the kind of bad boy she has dreamt about. I enjoyed watching them interact from their wicked banter to snarky one-liners. Nava tests and questions giving poor Rohan no reprieve. The developing relationship between them worked seamlessly against the action-packed storyline and Wilde has me wanting more.
The story is fast-paced with plenty of demon killing action. We see threats against Ari and Nava as well as the Brotherhood. Apparently, some demons want bragging rights for executing the first female demon slayer. What took me by surprise was the emotions I felt in the second half. I started out tolerating Nava and ended up rooting for her. Wilde did an excellent job of fleshing her out and allowing me to see what she is capable of. The story ends on a high note and sets us up for the next story.
Hollie Jackson narrated the Unlikeable Demon Hunter and did a fantastic job. However, it was a little weird hearing the voices of characters from the Witchless in Seattle series by Dakota Cassidy. Winterbottom’s as Rohan, and Nava as Stevie. However, as the story progressed their personalities and differences shone through.
