Set in: Georgia
Summary: He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help him take out any kind of supernatural threat. But now an immortal evil has this bad-ass bounty hunter dead in its sights. . .
Ever since a monster murdered his family, Deacon Chalk hunts any creature that preys on the innocent. So when a pretty vampire girl “hires” him to eliminate a fellow slayer, Deacon goes to warn him–and barely escapes a vampire ambush. Now he’s got a way-inexperienced newbie hunter to protect and everything from bloodsuckers to cursed immortals on his trail. There’s also a malevolent force controlling the living and the undead, hellbent on turning Deacon’s greatest loss into the one weapon that could destroy him. . .
I knew within 3 pages I was going to freaking love this book, and love this book I did. Deacon is like Buffy but way more badass… Don’t get my wrong I am a Buffy fangirl but I would not want to come face to face with Deacon.
Actually if I was going to sum this book up I would say it is like Buffy but for adults. This book was dark, gritty and very intense.
I liked Deacon I found him very likable and developed well, I will be curious to see how he is developed throughout the series, because I will continue to read this series, I placed the next book on my 2016 list. I am currently in the process of trying to read a book set in every state or I would jump right into the next book.
I will also say I am really digging a male lead in an urban fantasy, something that is typically always female. This was refreshing and a reason why I will read the next book.
This book is fast paced and a great urban fantasy. It is gritty and dirty and well I just love it!
