Synopsis (From Netgalley)

19-year-old twin demon trackers Shaun and Sarah Gallows are used to running into trouble – mostly the kind with fangs – but while Sarah embraces her powers to their fullest extent, trusting her instincts implicitly, Shaun distances himself from his abilities and can do little more than despair at his sister’s reckless nature and idly back her up. 

When they come across 17-year-old Melissa Carling, a demon tracker who’s been torturing innocent super-naturals, they know they have to stop her. Sarah is desperate to punish Melissa for what she’s been doing but Shaun’s instant attraction to the girl points to a soul-mate bond stronger than anything he’s ever had to fight before…

***Be warned this book is New Adult Modern Fantasy, not YA. It is not suitable for less mature readers as it contains profanity & sexual references.

My Review

DNFed 9%

I don’t even know what to say about this book. It was not what I expected, and not what I would have normally chosen to read. It’s like a mix of all the annoying things about YA (teenagers!) and the paranormal slightly sleazy aspects of urban fantasy/paranormal romance novels. I found all of the characters beyond annoying. The main characters, are children playing in an adult world. The sister specifically was callous toward everything and completely self-absorbed. She went from killing a bunch of vampires (and that is the gist; they go around hunting the supernatural) with no real care in the world, but then she is overwhelmed with sympathy for a fairy who is turning people to stone at a prom.

I am not interested in further reading this story, and I doubt I will read anything else in this series.
