Sum It Up! Any fans of the Hunter Kiss series should run out to get this book.


When the bond Maxine Kiss shares with the demons tattooed on her skin is deliberately severed, the demon hunter is left vulnerable and unprotected. For the first time in ten thousand years, the demons have a taste of freedom. And as the little demons grow more violent and unpredictable, Maxine starts to fear they will lose their minds without her. Reuniting won't be easy, since a greater temptation waits for these hellions: a chance to return to their lives as Reaper Kings, and unleash hell on Earth. (Goodreads)


Maxine Kiss saves humanity and fights demons. She is largely regarded as a hero for humanity. She has Reaper Kings as tattoos that enable her to continue her fight and make her immortal. Through a series of unfortunate circumstances, Maxine and the Reaper Kings are torn apart. Both parties aren't doing too well and don't know how to fix the situation. Maxine must look into her past to fix her future.

Maxine is as brave, intelligent, and outgoing as always. The reader, particularly one who has followed the series, will connect to her immediately. The Reaper Kings are intriguing; the reader gets to know each of them a little bit more through this latest book in the series. The longer Maxine and the Reaper Kings are separated, the more violent they get. The reader will love learning much more about the characters and what they are capable of, however.

Any fans of the Hunter Kiss series should run out to get this book. The reader can expect the same high-energy, exciting plot and characters as he/she experienced from the prior books. This book is recommended to adult readers.


  1. I haven't heard of this series before but I love kick ass heroines and Maxine sounds like a fun heroine to follow.
