    The end of this Brilliant But let me warn you, right now, it s a cliffy This also left me with the dilemma on how to rate it Because frankly I had a few issues with the rest of it When I started it, I immediately thought, that I will struggle with this Because frankly, I didn t like the writing style Then in the second chapter I was actually ok with the writing style And as I read on, I realised that my issue was Damon s POV The two POV as distinctively different written So different t The end of this Brilliant But let me warn you, right now, it s a cliffy This also left me with the dilemma on how to rate it Because frankly I had a few issues with the rest of it When I started it, I immediately thought, that I will struggle with this Because frankly, I didn t like the writing style Then in the second chapter I was actually ok with the writing style And as I read on, I realised that my issue was Damon s POV The two POV as distinctively different written So different that I every single time was taken aback by Damon s and though I found it got a wee bit better, I just don t like it I am still surprised about it and can t really explain why It was expression that were use, the style of writing, it felt over the top, too put on And there is the main crux of my rating If I don t like the writing style I find it impossible to get into the book Still as I was fine with Tiffany which I still find kinda odd btw , I am left wishing I would have liked it . and even contemplating giving the next book a try.The reason for that is the ending Just super brilliant I was so sure Ballenger is not going to go there, that when she did, I was beyond shocked The story line is in many ways , typical PNR and tortured alpha Hero so there weren t many surprises Lost of heartstrings were pulled, quite a bit of rather captivating action was thrown in and plenty of smut was added The character building was uhm honestly I don t know how I feel about it There were the tortured star crossed lovers But while I think that Ballenger did the character building of both MCs quite comprehensively, I know loads about them, I don t feel like I know them I couldn t really connect to either of them, because there was too much cliche stuff going on in my opinion insta lust, star crossed lovers, tortured hero, alpha dudes, V cards it was all thrown in But actually I honestly think, loads of people will not only have no issues with that, they will love it The villains were seriously too over the top for my taste It made the whole thing nearly comical and I found it destroyed the hype and tension Ballenger had been building up The world building is actually quite well done, this is clearly a set up for the novels that are to come and as such, it did a very good job There are quite a few adventures, Supernaturals and love stories ahead that much I can tell you Which leaves me with the big question will I read the next instalment Honestly I don t know But only because of my issues with Damon s POV I actually do hope that I would like the next book but then again, what if I don t I guess the jury is still out on that one.I think this has potential and I kinda hope Ballenger takes it to a different level in the next instalmentIf you are a PNR lover, give this a try and then you could be my test reader for the next one smirks yep, definitely a great plan, don t you think

    I have read the previous books in this series and really enjoyed them The reader has of course already been introduced to Damon Brock, the leader of the Execution Underground in Rochester, New York, but this is the first time we see why he is the way he is The way he is, is an unhappy, almost mean warrior and vampire hunter The reader can t help but wonder why he is such an unhappy man This novella tells that story What I liked about this novella As I said before, we get to see the why of D I have read the previous books in this series and really enjoyed them The reader has of course already been introduced to Damon Brock, the leader of the Execution Underground in Rochester, New York, but this is the first time we see why he is the way he is The way he is, is an unhappy, almost mean warrior and vampire hunter The reader can t help but wonder why he is such an unhappy man This novella tells that story What I liked about this novella As I said before, we get to see the why of Damon and that s something I think most readers wanted to know about I enjoyed getting to see him be vulnerable, and to find the woman that he fell in love with, originally through letters The fact that he feels responsible for the death of her brother, causes problems for this couple almost from the get go I also liked that we get to see Damon as a good guy, not the almost mean spirited person that is featured in the previous books.I also really liked the character of Tiffany As the little sister of a now dead, Execution Underground warrior and Damon s best friend, she is on her own mission to kill the vampire that killed her brother This is the same vampire that Damon plans on killing, so the two decide to work together Of course working together moves the story into the romance arena.This was a novella, but it didn t seem like a novella The main characters were fleshed out, and the storyintricate then most novellas, so this is in the like column for me What I didn t like about this novella I know it is a novella, but the insta love thing kind of bothered me I know that they had corresponded for years but since Tiffany doesn t even know that, that is who Damon is, that s kind of a moot point.To me, as a reader, insta love isrealistic with teenagers or shifter books when finding their mate So yes, it bothered me, but I did get over it, and just went with it.Spoiler Alert And it has to be said, the ending BUT, since we know Damon is unhappy in the subsequent books, I guess a super happy ending couldn t really happen, so I am okay with it I guess Maybe There is another book coming with Damon as a main character, so don t let this scare you off reading this Spoiler OverWho would I recommend this book to Adult Urban Fantasy fans, and people that have read the other books in this series.This novella was a quick easy read It had lots of action, gory scenes, and several really steamy sex scenes I liked the characters, and even the villains were really well depicted by the author This was a well written, good entry into the UF world and the Execution Underground series PureTextuality.com

    I actually read this backwards, since I didn t realize this was part of an anthology But once I realized there was a prequel the Twilight Hunter, I had to go back to see how it set up the series Aside from the insta lust love trope that I m not too crazy about, this book is a solid introduction to the series and I m so glad I read it I didn t have a great impression of Damon from Twilight Hunter, and now I know why The storyline was well done The mission feltcohesive and the couple wo I actually read this backwards, since I didn t realize this was part of an anthology But once I realized there was a prequel the Twilight Hunter, I had to go back to see how it set up the series Aside from the insta lust love trope that I m not too crazy about, this book is a solid introduction to the series and I m so glad I read it I didn t have a great impression of Damon from Twilight Hunter, and now I know why The storyline was well done The mission feltcohesive and the couple worked better together, without getting in each other s way And that ending I had a feeling I knew what was coming, but wondered if the author would go through with it Really impressed that she did

    Damon is on the hunt for the head vampire who killed his partner, Mark However, when he tracks down the bloodsucker, he finds Mark s little sister acting as a potential feeding host She s no longer the teenager he used to write letters to She s hunting her brother s killer and will do anything to seek revenge, even if it means putting her life on the line.I don t know why but I m always a fan of the best friend s little sister stories This one had a fun twist to it though Damon and Mark wer Damon is on the hunt for the head vampire who killed his partner, Mark However, when he tracks down the bloodsucker, he finds Mark s little sister acting as a potential feeding host She s no longer the teenager he used to write letters to She s hunting her brother s killer and will do anything to seek revenge, even if it means putting her life on the line.I don t know why but I m always a fan of the best friend s little sister stories This one had a fun twist to it though Damon and Mark were Hunters together and in an attempt to help Damon release some pent up emotions, Mark gets his little sister to start writing Damon Pretty soon the two of them are close pen pals but neither of them have met So fast forward to the present time, Mark was killed in action, Tiffany blames Damon for not saving him and Damon agrees with her assessment When these two meet, she has no clue that her brother s partner B is the same man standing in front of her and of course Damon isn t going to be forthcoming with that information However, they have a common goal and that is to take down the vampire responsible for Mark s death So they team up to try to take this vampire down, while becoming closer in the process.Even though this is a novella that sets up the Execution Underground series, there was a lot going on We got to understand the characters, the world that they live in as well as get a grasp for the stage that Kait is setting This series isn t going to revolve around just vampires, the EU handles all things supernatural and apparently there is a whole butt load of supes in Rochester, NY I hate to tell you this, but Rochester is swamped with supernatural predators There are reported werewolf sightings, possibly a full on pack, there are demons lodged so deep the people they ve possessed are pretty much done for, there are several small witch covens, loads of non wereworlf shifters oh, and that s not even including all the poltergeists and ghosts reported in the old abandoned asylum So with all the action taking place in Rochester, Damon finds himself appointed team leader and will soon be getting a team of Hunters to help him handle all the things that go bump in the night If the prequel is anything to go off of, this is going to be an amazing series I m so glad I found out about this debut author The whole story was captivating, from the intense fight scenes to the seductive bedroom scenes If you are a fan of paranormal romance than this is an absolute must I personally cannot wait to readof not only the EU series but anything that Kait comes out with.Favorite quoteI was born raised in Syracuse so of course I loved that this book takes place in Rochester Not even 9 00p.m and already he d taken out one bloodsucker Rochester seemed promising
