I grew up in the central valley of California. After years of devouring any books I could get my hands on, I finally got up the courage to finish one of my stories. The Wild Hunt is one of many I started and never finished. I primarily write Adult Fiction that leans towards urban fantasy, horror and the paranormal. Even though my characters can be, and are often times monsters, I wanted them to be believable, and flawed. Lorelei, is both, but she is also tough as nails, mouthy, and vulnerable. Welsh mythology plays an important part in my stories. I wanted to write about monsters no one had ever heard of. It is my hope that readers will love them as much as I do.

Lilith was an extremely interesting take on demons. It starts pretty quickly and continues to be original and fast-paced the whole way through. It's a quick read, just under 200 pages, but still has substance to it.
I really enjoyed the folklore surrounding Lilith. The mythology aspect is always something I'm drawn to, and in this case it's really awesome that it is a mythological person that isn't as well known. I loved that a whole world of mythology was alluded to, including fairies and witches and the like. She is despicable and ruthless, and I had quite a lot of fun hating her.
The same goes for Lexie. I'm still not convinced that she's not a bitch anymore, but everything in the story showed that perhaps she changed her ways. Pacey was certainly willing to accept it, but I'm siding with Rhiannon. I don't think she's out of the woods yet and I'm curious to see if anything else will happen with her. I do wish that Dean was focused on a little more. Not the tongue kissing, which was pretty prominent, but him as a person. We don't really know a whole lot about him, other than he loves Pacey. I would have liked to see something that made him worthy of being so much trouble.
The one issue that I had with it is that I really hated the way Pacey and Rhiannon talked. Yes, they sounded more like actual teenagers, but it also didn't really make either of them seem worthy. Why is Pacey so special? Her and Rhiannon both were bitchy to no end. Pacey never really shows that she's a direct descendant of Eve, she doesn't really represent any characteristics that would make me believe she belongs to someone so important.
I do agree that she was more like a regular teenager, and maybe that will make her easy to relate to for other readers. But for me, I found her to be irritating a few times.
