Back cover blurb for Shadow Hunter:

Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s newest assignment with the Execution Underground is Rochester, New York, a city crawling with the undead. But he isn’t the only hunter in town gunning for vamp blood. Tiffany Solow is fierce and ruthless when it comes to slaying the monsters that destroyed her family-and she works solo. But being alone is no longer an option when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf. Forced to unite against the local covens, the line between good and evil blurs when they must decide between their lifelong beliefs…and their newfound desires.


This review is for the novella Shadow Hunter by Kait Ballenger.

Don’t you just love that feeling you get when you finish a book and you realize that you have found a new favorite author? Because that is the feeling I got when I finished this very enjoyable novella! The plot and the characters totally dragged me into their world and I can’t wait to go back again.

Damon Brock is a part of Execution Underground, a group of vampire hunters who protect humans from the hungry vampires. Now that his closest friend has been killed he has sworn revenge on one of the oldest vampires in New York. Unfortunately Damon is not the only after this vampire. Now he must protect Tiffany from getting hurt all the while trying his best not to fall in love with her.

Now there is a huge, huge cliffhanger at the end but never fear! The next book, Twilight Hunter, will be coming out in September! So you (and I) won’t have a long wait to see what happens next!
