The Book High

I've always said I'll read anything, and I really do mean that. Lately M/M romance has had my interest, but fantasy and sci-fi were my first loves and will always hold a special place in my heart. I also love histories and biographies.

Hunter of Demons - Jordan L. Hawk I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story! I've not had much luck with books I pick up on a lark from ARe, but this one was a delightful surprise.

I was fascinated by the fresh take on several common paranormal elements: humans with special abilities, demons, vampires, werewolves, and such. Very fun new approach to those here. Parts reminded me a little of the tv show Supernatural, and other parts reminded me of JCP's Psycop series, but with the additional elements and new approach, it never felt dull or like a story I'd heard before.

My one complaint, and the thing that keeps this from being a 5-star read for me, was that the sex at the end felt sudden and rushed. The book is short, and I just didn't feel like there'd been enough build up of the relationship yet.

I'm definitely looking forward to #2, though!
