Kali D'Angelo is human.... Well, every other day, that is. But, every other day (I know, confusing) she isn't. She is a hunter. Someone that has the scent and the ability to track demons and monsters. It's a hard life to keep up with, but she manages to do just fine. Just as long as she can time when that day ends, and the next one begins.
Kali is quite a strong sixteen-year-old, who probably has had more to adjust to then anyone else there is, but it's interesting that when she finds herself having to protect someone she wish she could just avoid --- well, that's when things get interesting.
I admit, this is the first book I have read by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. It's not really on purpose. I have been meaning tor read her 'Raised by Wolves' series, but something always seems to get in the way, but I will definitely get around to them, because I did like her style of writing and would like to see what else she can create and come up with.
While this book, which feels like a stand alone - anyone, tell me differently if that's the case, was interesting. I found myself involved in Kali's world and life as she goes through some tough situations.
There is actually no real romance in the book, surprisingly. I kinda expected there would be, but it didn't take away from the story at all, if in fact, it only made the book even better.
There was alot happening, and I am not sure if it would even be possible to fit in any romance in the story. It does involve action scenes, revelations and startling confessions. Kali discovering that she might not even know who and what she is, and of course friendships, even those unexpected turning up.
The blurb was the thing that interested me when I got this book. It definitely sounded like something I would enjoy, and I did.
If you are a fan of paranormal creatures and an interesting and compelling story, then I would reccommend this book to you. And of course, if you are a fan of her work before this, then I would say picking this up should be a given.
I would like to thank Pan Macmillan for letting me have this opportunity to review this title in exchange for an honest review.
