The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.
Ari Katz is intelligent, 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.
Uncaged Review: This is a fun book, and a great start to a new series, and fits right under the Urban Fantasy landscape comfortably. I loved Nava’s wit, humor and sarcasm as she’s thrown into a world where she always believed her fraternal twin brother belonged in, but not her. When a ritual to initiate someone into the Brotherhood fails for her brother and chooses her instead, Nava is tossed into the world of the demon hunters, or Rasha. Something her brother has been working for his whole life. Now Rasha will need all the training she can get since she’s the first female Rasha, and will have a huge marker on her head to the demon world.
The cast of characters are terrific, the group of Rasha that takes her, begrudgingly, under their wings to train, you will rally behind. The action sequences are terrific and the humor will have you smiling. Nava is the underdog you will cheer on – and I’ll definitely be reading book two, that will be out in June. Reviewed by Cyrene
