“Ms. Ballenger rocked the hell out of this book, making Immortal Hunter one of UTC’s Top Pick for this year. ” ~ Under the Covers

Hot damn! Ms. Ballenger rocked the hell out of this book, making Immortal Hunter one of UTC’s Top Pick for this year. Ms. Ballenger continues to impress me with the none-stop excitement in this book. It had a perfect blend of mystery, action, humor, romance and a little bit of heartbreak.

David and Allsun’s past goes back further than I thought, which of course is explained more in this book. In fact, they were high school sweethearts but somewhere down the line, their paths separate. Or more down to the point, their priorities changed. Their past broke my heart and I’m glad they get a second chance to rectify their relationship.

The mystery of the murders, oddly, is what brought these two together. Because of their talent to sense demon activity, they are both drawn to the demon activity around them. I have to say, some scenes were not gory per se, but how the murders were done made me cringe a little. Okay, no, it freaked me out a little. The murders were just a bit brutal but don’t get me wrong, it goes well with the story. Ms. Ballenger does touch a little on the loss and grieving. Allsun did not have tortured past but losing someone she loves was a big tear jerker for me. She truly touched my heart with this subject. On a good note, Ms. Ballenger had given Allsun the happy-ending she deserves.

I was curious about Damon, the hero from the novella Shadow Hunter. I actually had to open up his book to remember what happened. As soon as I remembered and seeing him emotionally suffer made me want his book even more. From what I hear his book will be the very last of the series. I’m sure it will be a worthwhile read. Actually,  I’m excited to read more of this group who is dedicated to making a difference in this world.

With this book, Ms. Ballenger cements my decision to make her an auto buy and review for any book she writes. She is a solid writer and I expected more great books from her.

About Kait Ballenger

Kait Ballenger is a full-time paranormal romance author, wife, professional bellydancer, and graduate student living in Central Florida. SHADOW HUNTER, the debut prequel of her sexy paranormal romance series, the Execution Underground, about an international network of supernatural hunters who fight to protect humanity alongside the powerful women they seduce, releases in an anthology titled AFTER DARK along with NYT Bestselling author Gena Showalter's novella THE DARKEST ANGEL in July 2013. TWILIGHT HUNTER, book one of the EU series, debuts Sept 2013.

With a B.A in English from Stetson University, Kait is currently a student in Spalding University’s M.F.A in Writing for Children and Young Adults program, where she studies dual-genre in screenwriting. She writes dark paranormal romance with drool-worthy heroes and kickass heroines as Kait Ballenger, and sassy YA urban fantasy under her maiden name, Kaitlyn Schulz.

When Kait’s not preoccupied with paranormal creepy-crawlies, she can be found slaving over endless amounts of schoolwork or with her nose buried in a book. She lives in Florida with her husband, and doggie-daughter, Sookie (yes, like the heroine in Charlainne Harris’ books), and two mischievous kittens, Elliot and Olivia (yes, like the Law and Order characters), near the love and care of her supportive family. Kait believes anything is possible with hard work and dedication. One day, she will be a bestseller and have people name their pets after her characters too.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
