Title: Shadow Hunter
Author: Kait Ballenger
Series: Execution Underground 0.5
Release Date: August 4, 2014
See where it all began in this exciting prequel to The Execution Underground, Kait Ballenger’s sexy paranormal series about the men who hunt evil and the women who love them.
Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s first assignment with the Execution Underground is Rochester, New York. But he isn’t the only hunter in town gunning for vamp blood. Tiffany Solow is ruthless when it comes to slaying the monsters that destroyed her family—and she works solo. But when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf, the line between good and evil blurs as they must decide between their lifelong beliefs…and their newfound desires.
I think Kait Ballenger launches her Execution Underground paranormal series to an amazing start with the prequel Shadow Hunter.
Damon Brock is a vampire hunter who seeks to avenge the death of his friend and partner. He quickly finds out he’s not the only one with this goal in mind. Tiffany Solow is hell bent on working alone to find the vampire who murdered her older brother. She had no idea that this personal mission would unite her with the one person who she blames for her loss.
Shadow Hunter is a fast-paced read filled with thrilling and vivid action scenes. The world building has great potential for some exciting, dark, and dangerous storylines in this supernatural underworld. I also found the gory twist with the vampires quite interesting! Damon and Tiffany were well-matched, strong characters. I liked the whole letter writing aspect to the story. I thought the letters quickly helped forge their connection, flame the tension, and help fan the romance in a short time. What an exhilarating gateway to this series! Once you read Shadow Hunter, you will definitely want to grab book 1, Twilight Hunter, right away!
