I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review!
I loved the idea of this story, Demon Hunters controlled by a council of Elders and sent to vanquish the Monsters of the world with their lightning power. I was very happy that I read the prequel first it gave me a great look into Tina's triumphs and misfortunes that took place shortly before the events of this Novel, I really liked having that little bit extra while I read this one.
This review may contain a few spoilers because I have so many feelings and I need to get them out so read at your own risk!!
I was taken on a very emotional ride and a lot of it was for Tina, I felt very sorry for her after her punishment I believe she was doing the right thing, but I guess the council did not see it that way. I was also pleased with her because even after losing her power she still did her job to the best of her ability. I was also very frustrated with her when it came to Lachlan, I know she was under a spell but I thought she was stronger than that, I even put the book down it was only for a very short time but I was just so mad at her, I think the biggest reason was because of Ten I was so confused as to why she would just put him aside after everything they had been through Demon or not.
When the shit really hit the fan, the Tina I knew and loved returned and I really enjoyed the action filled conclusion and I felt very satisfied with myself because I knew that Lachlan was not smart enough to carry all this out on his own, and the real mastermind was someone I had been very suspicious of for a long time. The whole blood magic thing was very neat and entertaining and I can't wait to see what the storm family will take on next, with so many demons out there both with and without treaties I can see the battle for peace has just begun.
Ten had my heart in the prequel when he helped Tina save her friend, and since he is a shape shifter and shifted into a wolf then I was even more hooked. When he continued to help Tina and shifted into more fun things to show her a good time and even to save her I just fell in love, it also didn't hurt that he drove a motorcycle and wore a leather jacket. I can not wait to see what happens between him and Tina cause I have faith he will always be there for her like he promised. I loved every second of this book and I am so glad I read it!!!
