His eyes blazed with a pale light, and he trailed his fingertips down her back, leaving a trail of tingles. “If you’re going to straddle demons in the woods, you might as well show a little leg.”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another great Urban Fantasy series starter. I read Magic Hunter over the weekend, and I loved it. It was so full of action, I don’t think it ever slowed down. The hits just kept coming, one right after another. I was completely engaged in this story from page one to the bitter-sweet end.
Rosalind is training to be a member of the Brotherhood. Her mission in life is to kill demons to save the lives of people, in between college classes and pining away for her ex-boyfriend. Then Caine shows up and contradicts everything she believes, everything she’s ever been taught. Who is Caine, you ask? Oh, he’s just a Shadow Mage with healing powers. And an incubus. And a hot-as-hell leader of the vampire army.
“Is it just me, or are you two awfully fond of ‘healing’ each other? You know, you could just shag like normal people and not subject yourself to broken bones first.”
The story line of this book was excellent. The characters were well-written and complex. I loved how the tension kept building and building between Rosalind and Caine, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series to see their relationship grow even more. I really like how their relationship has been very gradual and even kind of back and forth so far. Even though he’s super sexy, and she has plenty of opportunities of go for it, we get this kind of slow burn thing going, and it makes me eager for more!
