Also by this author: Deception (The Demon Hunters, #2)
In service to His Majesty, one must be prepared for Hell.
To survive as a scullery maid requires hard work, discipline, and a stiff upper lip. To survive as a Demon Hunter is something else entirely. Elizabeth Smythe learned this after she was captured by Demons and rescued by Hunters. Now a Hunter herself, Elizabeth’s first task in this new and strange world is to aid the recently wounded Lord Reece Foxjohn, and get him back into Demon-slaying shape. . .
Reece Foxjohn is used to defying convention. He enraged his family by becoming a Demon Hunter, and prefers eviscerating the spawn of Satan to mixing with the ton. He is a man who doesn’t hesitate when he knows what he wants, and what he wants is Miss Elizabeth Smythe. From the moment he set eyes on the fiery Hunter, he’s wanted to claim her for his own. To watch her behead the progeny of Evil is to behold a thing of beauty.
Below Edinburgh Castle, Elizabeth Smyth and Reece Foxjohn turned into the corridor to the head demon hunter’s office.
What I thought of this book
Though you might be able to read these books as stand alones I think it’s a series best read in order as it does have things from other books. That might make more since if you had read previous books.
Reese was injured by a demon in previous books and he almost died. In the last book Elizabeth was just a scullery maid in the wrong place at the wrong time and taken by the master for his ritual. She was rescued and joined The Company (demon hunters) and she has been taking care of Reese.
She is not in charge of making sure that Reese gains his strength and becomes a great demon hunter like he use to be. Reese is not sure it will ever happen but she won’t give up on him. They travel back to London where she finds out through she strange happenings that she is still linked to the master.
Reese is not sure when Elizabeth went from the shy woman who use to bring him his food trays the a woman that he can’t quit thinking about. Elizabeth has been in love with him since she first started taking care of him, but she doesn’t think her places is with him. He is a gentleman and she was a scullery maid. Though in The Company noble and the lower class are equal.
They find out that the master is after the other ladies that was captured with Elizabeth though they are not exactly sure why. Then Elizabeth is captured again and some from The company think that she has betrayed them, but Reese doesn’t believe it. Still not knowing what he Masters plans are he will risk everything for the woman he loves.
I have really enjoyed this series. There is a lot of action and some humor. Reese has been one of my favorite characters so I was excited to read his story and I wasn’t disappointed. Elizabeth is a good woman for him and I love that she can kick his butt as he was still weak from being injured. She really enjoyed working him over in training. 🙂
It also has the characters from the previous books in it which I am glad and it was nice seeing how things are going with those relationships. There was some new characters training at one of the schools for demon hunters and they were pretty interesting.
Overall, if you enjoy paranormal romances then you might enjoy this series.
