Juggling demon killing and sexy times is harder than it seems.
Odds of survival: meh.
Odds of hooking up with a smoking hot rock star before she bites it: much better.
Can a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex face her worst nightmare … a purpose?
When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts her twin’s induction ceremony into the Brotherhood of David, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the previously all-male demon hunters.
How does a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess even fight demons? Especially demons who are doubly motivated; bonus points for killing the first female hunter.
Now she’s on a mission to test her mettle, but her Brotherhood-appointed babysitter is distractingly hot. When you combine charisma and hard abs, how’s a girl to focus and what will it cost her in the end?
The Unlikeable Demon Hunter
(Nava Katz #1)
By Deborah Wilde
I think the title was a bit too harsh…
The Unlikeable Demon Hunter dropped onto my radar, caught my attention and tickled my readingbuds (think tastebuds, but it does sound a little kinky). I’m late to the party, as the book has been around for nearly a year. I looked at some reviews and the negative ones made my eyes light up. Who can resist a *Too much sex* or *a lone female in a male-dominated demon hunter group*? Well, to be honest, the first one just makes me curious as to how much is too much and the second just flat out grabbed my attention and kept hold.
Now, the reviews I read didn’t exactly make me feel like I was going to be stepping into an epic read. Surprisingly though, with my expectations low, I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, she’s obsessed with partying, sex and booze, but, she’s also 20-years-old. My expectations of finding a mature, smart and moralistic 20-year-old are pretty low. After meeting this 20-year-old, I’m not surprised she hadn’t found herself.
OK, I admit, she didn’t exactly show herself in the best light when I first met her, but as the story went on, she grew on me. When all the pieces had been laid out, it was clear to see that she had been trying to find her focus/path/destiny.
If only that damn ring landed on her brother’s finger instead of her own.
Nava is probably the worst candidate to put up as a demon hunter. She’s flighty, silly, reckless and determined to put her brother in her place. He was supposed to wear the damn ring, not her. He had been training for this position for years, she had other plans. He knew what a demon looked like, she didn’t even know there were so many types. He had the bits and pieces between his legs to make him a brother, she was definitely not a brother.
I found the storyline really interesting. Such a fascinating concept that demon hunters have been around for centuries and were chosen from birth to be a part of the Brotherhood of David. It was a very old-fashioned concept that only men could be demon hunters and only male Rabi’s could be in charge. It was obvious that Nava was never supposed to have magic or the abilities she possessed.
Sometimes, plans change. It takes a little while for the brothers to warm up to the idea of a female in their midst. They will push her to her limits to see if she has what it takes and make her prove herself. Nava has to stand on her own two feet and use her abilities or she will die. At first, it was a little hard to watch Nava struggle, but deep down, I knew it was for her own good to be tested.
Look, I admit, there’s a lot of sexy times (more thoughts than times) in this story but it wasn’t the worst I’ve read. Yes, Nava does think about sex a lot, but I kind of expect that from a 20-year-old young and pretty girl. Her thoughts and dialogue were pretty immature, but, again, she’s 20, I expected it.
If I had one complaint about Nava, it was that she wouldn’t consider a relationship with Rohan. I think that’s my 43-year-old head thinking that because I can see Rohan’s potential. It’s easy to forget that most young girls aren’t looking for the love of their lives when they’re just out of school. I’m still hoping that he will get past the safety barriers around her heart.
If you’re looking for a lighthearted, funny and sexy read where magic and demon hunting plays a major part in the storyline, The Unlikeable Demon Hunter might be perfect for you. I will definitely be going on in the series…soon…ish.
