Hunters of the supernatural, the Execution Underground are an elite group tasked with protecting humanity...but at what price?
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.
The men of the Execution Underground (EU) all have their own simple area. Jace from book 1, Twilight Hunter is the best werewolve hunter. Damon from the novella, Shadow Hunter is the best vampire hunter and the leader of the Rochester Division. Shane is the hottie hiding under his book nerd title and he specializes in all things occult. Ash Devereaux, talks to ghosts. Trent, is a shifter hunter. (You can find out more about each guy at Meet the Rochester Division)
That brings us to the hero of Immortal Hunter, David Aronowitz and he is the best in demon exorcist around. And he’s working hard to over come the lost of the love of his life only to find her again in time to almost loose her again by events that took place in Twilight Hunter. That’s where IH starts, about a month after TH.
David and Allsun (Allie) grew up together and became BFFs in high school then after Allie went to Ireland one summer to visit family she came back all grown up and David started seeing her as more than just his best friend. The two realized they were in love and got engaged. But after one hellish break up and five years later the two can’t each other out of their heads or hearts.
David and Allie were not only engaged to get married but they also hunted demons together. See David is not the only one in the couple that has special abilities (his exorcist gift), Allie is half fae, pixie to be exact. And all those years ago when she gave David her heart she also gave him another piece of herself that she needs back.
Allie and David’s romance is full of heart-break. Some of it could have been avoided if Allie had talked more with David but her hurt over David’s decision to join the EU made her act out and things only go worse that night long along. Kait Ballenger really puts you through the emotional ringer with Immortal Hunter.
I think Lori at Romancing the Dark Side summed up this series greatly when we were talking about it… “The guys remind me a little of BDB without the fangs…LOL”
If you’re looking for a great PNR series that’s only 2 books (and a novella) in you can quickly catch up with Kait Ballenger’s Execution Underground series. And what’s not to love about a demon hunting alpha male that reads romance novels?
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
