The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Diverse Badasses and the Hollie-Jackson-Fanclub

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter

Review: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter (Nava Katz 1)

by Deborah Wilde

Pick it up on Amazon
First things first, Nava Katz is NOT unlikable. She is quirky. She is unlike! And she is also not particularly good at demonhunting, what with being thrown into it entirely unexpectedly, hence without training.

As a Buffy-fan and someone who can’t move past a book with the word “demons” in the title, I of course had to get this one. And I have no regrets! This is a very entertaining Urban Fantasy with some great sex scenes. Romance… not so much yet. I assume Nava will still have to work out some personal issues before she and her friend with benefits can become more. She’s a pretty complex protagonist and I felt I could relate to her. She has many different sides to her personality, being both kind of a badass, but also in some ways scared of being hurt and shaken from past experiences. She feels like a real person, not a cardboard-character that you can describe with one word.

Also, this is narrated by Hollie Jackson. I’m considering a rename of this blog to “Hollie Jackson fanclub”, because it is dawning on me that I can never go wrong with a Hollie Jackson audiobook. Obviously, her narration is always top-notch, but the stories she chooses are usually right down my alley, too.

I can’t say too much more about this book without listening to more of the series, since obviously this is only the first part and introduction into the world and life of Nava. But if you’re looking for a fun UF/PR that doesn’t take itself too seriously, has demons and truly diverse characters without stereotyping, then this is definitely a good choice!

 

Publisher’s Summary

Ari Katz is intelligent and driven and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin, Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the until-now all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad-boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

Demons of Desire (Half-Breed 1)

Demons of Desire Half-Breed series by Debra Dunbar

by Debra Dunbar

Pick it up on Amazon

To be honest, I really only picked this book up back in the day because of its amazing title. I mean, Demons of Desire?! How good is that?! This was also my introduction to the world of paranormal romance beyond vampires and werewolves. Their fangs lost some of their original shine for me. So demons seemed like a pretty intriguing idea.

And the book really delivered. The Half-Breed series is stuffed with sex of all flavors while following the path of young Amber, who formerly believed she was just a college girl, but then found out she is actually half elf, half succubus. And also, her friend is satan (but that is a different story).Β  The revelation of her actual parentage happens prior to this first book and is covered in the Imp Series by Debra Dunbar. However, you don’t need to actually read Imp. Demons of Desire was my first Debra Dunbar story and it works just fine by itself (although I absolutely recommend reading the Imp series, it is really fantastically entertaining and all around awesome, especially as audiobook narrated by Angela Rysk!)

Now, in this first book Amber is trying to come to terms with her succubus half and the needs she has because of it. You know… sex. But this truly is a paranormal romance novel, so cue Irix the incubus. Amber is worried he would love her and leave her, in true incubus style, so she flees to her friend in New Orleans to escape temptation. There she learns more about her nature-attuned elf powers and tries to save a bayou that has become the scene of a magical battle for ley lines.

Hollie Jackson has a wonderful accent and I find her youthful yet sexy voice very fitting for Amber. Her reading is captivating and her different voices are great. I especially liked her New Orleans accent, and I am super particular with accents πŸ˜€ She also reads the nastiest sex scenes without any hesitation. Yes, Demons of Desire has one scene with explicit descriptions of acts that I will carefully call “an acquired taste”. But it works for the story and the narrator delivers it in a wonderful way. So don’t be afraid and give demons a chance!
