Blog Tour Review- She Who Hunts

Title: She Who Hunts
Author: C.L. Parks
Rating: 4/5


Summary
Tenna Massey's past is about to catch up with her. For eighteen years she’s carefully crafted a normal life. When an assassination attempt shatters that illusion, she’s forced to accept her true identity. As the prophesied demon huntress, she may be the only one powerful enough to stop a recent string of murders.

Tenna has two choices--kill or be killed. She must conjure the courage to kill someone she’s loved for so long to save thousands of innocent humans.

Will Tenna choose to embrace her fate as The Huntress or condemn humanity to an eternity of Hell on Earth?

My Review
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review and as part of a blog tour. The fact that this book is based on demon hunting was the thing that first drew me to it, I love supernatural so the word "Hunters" has a certain pull for me. I enjoyed the differences in the Deomons and Hunters in this book as opposed to other books and shows I have watched/read, especially the blessed sword disguised as a tattoo, giving easy access to it without having to carry it around all the time and getting strange looks for everyone (or arrested lol). I did not really like the no female hunters thing it was sex est and did not make a lot of sense what happens to all the girls born to hunters, they just make more hunters and thats it, well thank goodness for Tenna she is breaking the mold like her mother, being the only female hunter like her mother...or is she?
Not only were there hunters which excited me but then along comes Jason, first I thought he was just a huge sexy hunter sent to protect Tenna form the evil demon out for her death, but he was so much more than that and I wont spoil his secret but I will say it made me love him and this book so much more, and while we are talking about Jason I have to mention the intensely sexy love scene filled with primal instinct and passion it is definitely worth a mention.
The roller coaster of emotions Tenna was put through in a short amount of time was a very insane ride, just when I thought she was finding her place the evil haunting her life would strike again, it was heartbreaking to watch but I liked how she handled herself, yes she iced her heart for protection but not forever she was aware of the hardening and she kept it in check as best she could, I also think having Russell back in her life and Jason added to it, helped keep her grounded.
This was a fun, quick read but I felt like the action in some scenes was rushed and my copy had all the L's in double L words missing, but if you take those things out it was great and I am glad I read it and I hope to read more soon.
