Review: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter Series by Deborah Wilde
Publication Date: 4/18/2017
Series: Nava Katz Series #1-#6
Rating: 5 Stars
Rule breaker, magic wielder, hot mess: meet our best chance at survival.
Can a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex face her worst nightmare … a purpose?
When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts her twin’s induction ceremony into the Brotherhood of David, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the previously all-male demon hunters.
How does a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess even fight demons? Especially demons who are doubly motivated; bonus points for killing the first female hunter.
Now she’s on a mission to test her mettle, but her Brotherhood-appointed babysitter is distractingly hot. When you combine charisma and hard abs, how’s a girl to focus and what will it cost her in the end?
Odds of survival: meh.
Odds of hooking up with a smoking hot rock star before she bites it: much better.
It has been a VERY, VERY ,VERY long time since an entire sucked me as the Nava Katz series did to me over the last weekend. I’m talking no sleep, ignoring everyone, and not leaving the bedroom until the last page was read. While reminiscient of another one of my favorites, The Charley Davidson series, these books a perfect mix of action, romance, steam, drama, and humor overload. All of my favorites. Cue the Sound of Music lol.
Nava is what I think really made this series for me. She’s crazy, a bit of a hot mess when it comes to relationships, her family, friends… okay, basically everything. Her humor abounds keeps you laughing through the entire book, but it’s her off and off again relationship with Rohan that really kept me reading. Normally, the back and forth drama train wouldn’t pique my interest, but their romantic story did. You could tell from the very first time Ro stalked her that something major was going to happen for these two. The chemistry was just off the charts even if the few times where I wanted to reach through my kindle and strangle him. Prague being one of those times. But…. Together these two train wrecks make an adorable, off the charts couple.
The story ARC is also quite interesting because you don’t often see the Jewish culture in PNR stories. Wilde’s added delightful twist to her story writing was yet another thing that I loved about this book. Demon killing Rabbis? I mean.. come on. Literary gold!
If you pick up these books, you should definitely schedule a weekend off from life and hook-up an IV of caffeine. You’re going to need it.
