The sirens grow closer, an ear-piercing wail of sorrow.
I shove to a stand and open the door. A dull clack of fingers typing on a keyboard echoes through the house punctuated by the age-old rhythm of T’s headboard thumping against the living room wall. How Smythe works with that racket, I’ll never understand.
Despite the lack of a full moon, the emergency room was packed with a variety of illnesses and accidents, dooming the staff to employ their iron bladders.
Fluorescent lights buzz an uneven tune as I head to my car.
Lucky for me the doorbell uses that moment to ring.
This whole series is written in first person, present tense with Gin’s point of view. Writing this way, Bentley puts the reader smack dab in the middle of demon and minion killing.
Gin Crawford, a demon huntress, is someone who can look death in the face and still say something silly. I chuckle a lot while reading. If you’ve been following the series, you’ll know that Gin used to be an ER nurse with long hours, had a sort of boyfriend relationship with a fellow who’s now dead—unfortunately, killed by a demon. Gin is sucked into be a Justitian due to her bloodlines and the bracelet which she wears, appearing one evening in her nurse uniform pocket. It’s tied to her nervous system, so they commute somewhat, at least on an emotional. Gin is new to being a demon huntress, so hasn’t learned the tricks of the trade as the other twelve Justitians.
While Gin battles with minions and demons the bracelet works to deaden her pain receptors. It also helps her finds minions, someone who works for a demon and if she’s lucky, a demon. Lucky, for the world, to eliminate evil, but she gets pretty banged up when fighting them. Sometimes, she’s close to death, but Smythe’s healers patch her up.
Talking about demons. Zagan will jump through a portal in her bedroom when she thinks she’s alone, scaring me and her. He’s decided he’s her friend. She’s glad she isn’t his servant. The bracelet dances a happy dance every time he pops in, which shouldn’t happen. The bracelet normally would change two a knife, ready to kill. Things are not what they seem with this demon. It shall be interesting to see the additional part he’ll play in the series. Frankly, I kind of like the guy. Some how I think he’s playing both sides.
Smythe, the mage who is supposed to work with Gin, has become very moody. Their relationship deepens. But Gin has a rule. No sleeping with the boss. So...
I don’t want to miss the next in the series. If you haven’t started it, you should. It is so much fun. I understood Bentley has finished the next one and will soon be ready for publishing. Go, Karilyn!
The publisher provided the read for review. All opinions and remarks are solely my own, only influenced by the talent of the author.
Gin Crawford was a fairly ordinary ER nurse with empathic abilities and a troubled past. Then she was gifted with a special silver bracelet, a justitia that turns into a sword in the presence of demons. And it came with her very own super sexy Mage, the dark and brooding Smythe.
Bentley writes with a snarky first person POV from Gin's perspective that is both audacious and totally self deprecating, and sucks you right in along her high speed journey. It's not as much of a roller coaster as a first time luge ride, fast and furious into uncharted territory. The reader discovers everything right alongside Gin, as consorting with demons is as new to her as it is to the reader, and she pulls no punches in the telling.
Although this could really stand on its own and be a satisfying read, I totally recommend starting at the beginning of the series and reading them all.
The middle of a series can be hard ... Book 3 of a 5 book series is traditionally a point when our hero and/or heroine faces their inner demons and reaches their lowest point, where they need to make the choices that will lead them to ruin or redemption. Bentley gives us a great example of this, but no, I'm not spilling the details.
If you enjoy Urban Fantasy and strong but flawed female heroines, I totally recommend this series and this author.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. And I can honestly say I loved it and can hardly wait for book four!
RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M. Brennan.
This is the third book in Karilyn Bentley's Demon Huntress Series, and I have to say, as much as I loved the first two, this is my favourite, so far. And there's two more to go! I won't go into details, because this is the third book and I don't wish to give away any spoilers, but there's more answers, more intrigue and more romance. I love how Ms. Bentley writes complex characters with twists of humour. They feel real. They're not perfect, and I love how that gets woven in realistically with the plot. She gives Gin a snarky, strong voice that I love. I think we'd be friends in real life. I also love Bentley's descriptions of locations, and her ability to dig deep to write those truly dark scenes that make your gut drop and your eyes sting.
