Since today is an public holiday in my country, i decided to use my limited free time to share with you my opinion on a new book earlier than expected.
I discovered "Hunter, hunted"by Ashley Meira during a giveaway if i remember well and i was very attracted by the cover so i had to learn more..when the author kindly offered us the opportunity to check and review the book i couldn't resist and i'm glad i didn't try^^
So happy reading!

Great discovery! The first thing that caught my eyes for once is the cover, i loved the colors and i was in the mood for magic users and urban fantasy so after reading the blurb this book seemed perfect for me. I wasn't disappointed to say the least.
This is a new universe where Hell and Heaven have agents keeping "peace" on earth along with an hunters order...we even get some information about how it happened which is something i really like ( great background setting always make a story better in my opinion) so to resume you have humans, normal one, some magic users working with demons ( good ones)...we also learn that vampires and werewolves exist in this universe.
The main Character is Morgan, an hunter talented in elemental magic and friend with Ipos, the second of lucifer himself she also lives with a talking cat , mentor and maternal figure in a sense) named Rowan.
When a caravan is attacked Alex, another hunter, is in charge of the investigation thanks to his power to speak to the dead which leads him to Morgan. Starting from that point it's non stop action ^^ you jump from one investigation to the next and the author manage to slowly offer you more information on the universe, Morgan, Rowan etc without cutting the rhythm of the action. It's really a pleasant and more reads one that leave you with more questions but not in an anguish because of a cliffhanger either so it's simply perfect.
The only element i wasn't fond of is Morgan attitude....even now that i've finished reading this story it's still bother me. I love my characters being loyal and i guess then exclusive. Morgan is jumped to bed with everyone she fancies...worse in my opinion she even do it with people she doesn't know for more than a few hours and in a house where someone dear to her died..... For me she could be Ipos girlfriend , yes he is a demon etc but it wouldn't hurt me as much as Morgan jumping from one to another even in the same day. It's a personal opinion of course and that aside the main plot and secondary characters make me want to read more ...i just hope she will end up choosing and sticks to her choice.
Ipos is funny and doesn't hide his demonic nature...i really loved that you could imagine that their races doesn't determine if they are good or evils. Alex is...in fact i can't really have an opinion on him yet he can act tender but he has a lot of secrets.Rowan made me laugh...she may be a cat but her personnality is hilaring and she can be very inventive in her threats.
All put together this is a series i would like to continue but if you are someone who doesn't like demons in your stories you may want to skip this one as they are a lot and a lot of reference to it. It's really good urban fantasy
