I’ll start by saying that what I liked most are the last words in the book. Don’t cheat looking because you’ll spoil your pleasure!
Saying that there are other things to discover and like about Elizabeth Mason’s Demon Huntress: Love Me to Hell and Back. For example, I liked the featured supernatural creatures who are close to the traditional, religious approach but, at the same time, different enough to not be pale copies of others’ heroes. The characters’ distinct attributes were well introduced, and, whilst there is room for surprises, they are prepared earlier on.
The plot is nicely controlled and supports more development (for the next volume?). I liked that the romance did not size the action. They are closely connected, but this time the romance is the co-pilot and not the driver. Relax, those who are love & lust aficionados will be fully satisfied (pun intended). In addition to the potential love story between the main characters, several other types of love and relationships will propel the story offering the necessary reasons and challenges. Also, they will create the necessary stage for “a haunting tale of self-reflection and forgiveness” how the blurb stated. Another plus is that even at times it seems that the “psychological battle” is repetitive, still, it does not clog the alert rhythm that starts at the beginning and continues to the end.
Peppered with some fear, gore, and hellish deeds, the story offers several enjoyable read hours, especially if you like “spooky stories with strong leading women and bad boy leading men” (EM). Well done for a debut work!
