Description/Blurb:

A timeless seduction A unique temptation And a whole world of dark desires…

From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

The Darkest Angel

Winged warrior Lysander has been alive for centuries, and yet he’s never known desire-until he meets Bianka. Spawned from the bloodline of his enemy, the beautiful but deadly Harpy is determined to lead the untouched Lysander into temptation. He may try to evade her attempts, but even the most iron-willed demon assassin can resist for only so long….

And from debut author Kait Ballenger

Shadow Hunter

Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s first 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 so desirable when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf. As they work to massacre the local covens, the line between good and evil blurs when they are forced to decide between their lifelong beliefs… and their newfound hearts.

My Thoughts:

***I only read Shadow Hunter so my review is only for Shadow Hunter***

Quickie Review:
I really enjoyed how Ballenger drew me into the world of the Execution Underground but never left me feeling confused or lost, yet at the same time moved the story along and allowed me to get to know the characters. It can be hard for me to connect with the characters in a short, but I found myself caring about their feelings and what happened to them. While I found myself confused at some of their decisions and disagreeing with some of their choices I could still empathize with their pains and struggles.

It was a great introduction to Ballenger’s debut series, Execution Underground, and I am certainly looking forward to diving right into Twilight Hunter.
