As an exorcist, David Aronowitz grew up the target of demonic
assassins. Now he’s a member of the Execution Underground
and hellspawn everywhere fear his name. But when a demon
slips into the seductive body of the only woman he’s ever loved,
David must confront the heartbreak of their past to save her.
The piece of her heart Allsún O’Hare gave to David so long ago
left her trapped between two worlds: the Fae and the human.
And when David comes to her rescue, fate reunites her with her
greatest temptation—and her biggest mistake.
Now, as they’re swept together into a wicked game with the
demon who controls her, David must decide if saving Allsún’s
life is worth sacrificing his own—and the future of humanity itself.
David is an exorcist and together with his fellow hunters work for Execution Underground hunting demons. It's an ability he's used since he was a teenager but then he worked alongside the only woman he has ever loved, Allsun. Tragically they are been separated as Allsun could not accept David's desire to keep hunting demons when all she wanted was for them to have a family and a normal life. Allsun is half pixie and it makes her prey to demons and now it looks as if the demons not only know about her, but are targeting her! David's only just found her again and he's not about to stand by and just watch her suffer but dark forces are getting closer and his biggest fear is about to come true!
This is a paranormal romance and is a very good story, complete with evil bad guys driving the plot of this book. For me, it was the interaction between the hero and heroine driving this story. They are clearly still madly in love but getting them to admit it to each other felt like pulling teeth! Such a stubborn, well meaning pair and I wanted to just bang their heads together! David's everything a hero should be! He's gorgeous, brave, loyal, faithful and possesses a wicked sense of humour. Oh and his talents in the bedroom are legendary! But ask him to sit down and lay his cards fully on the table and the poor guy is absolutely clueless!
As a heroine, Allsun is just so full of love. She's driven by her need to have it all, David and children. She's made choices that may have felt right at the time but she's not been truly happy. She's carrying secrets and such sorrow that my heart went out to her. Oh, she's no pushover and certainly not a weak character but she is someone who I really warmed to and wanted her to get her happy ever after. Their journey is fraught with danger and a twist that will rock fans of this series to their core.
Although part of a series, Immortal Hunter is easily read as a stand alone but please if at all possible, read these books in order. It's a joy to read a book that comes to life and I applaud Ms Ballenger on such an amazing read. This tortured couple are such a stubborn pair but clearly meant for each other. It's an enthralling story and just so emotional but don't worry, there is plenty of action and mayhem to keep your attention. The words just flow so naturally and it's a storyline that will touch hearts. It's such an exciting world Ms Ballenger brings to life and I, for one, really wish she could write faster. In fact, I think she has now become an auto buy for me! This book is well and truly recommended!
Immortal Hunter is $3.82 in Kindle edition at Amazon and $4.99 for the Nook book at B & N.
