They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it…

Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.

Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.

My Thoughts

I freakin’ loved this book! Holy cow, it was so good. Ok I will stop gushing now, and try and write a normal review. I just had to get that squee out. Evie is a demon hunter. The tatoos they get and the magic they carry within them kind of reminded me of shadowhunters in the city of bones series, because they were a little like the runes that they wore. The overall concept is kind of similar. Hunters are people that can see demons lurking around in the real world. They get recruited and train with the sole purpose of fighting and killing those demons. These are all adults, but I liked the dorm like home they lived and trained in. It was cool having all the characters in the story there under one roof. Plus is was a lot of fun watching Evie and Daniel run into each other all the time.

Evie is pretty much the best hunter the organization has ever had, so when they get a fresh new recruit, she is assigned to train him and they kind of become partners for missions. Daniel is good but he is so new that she sometimes gets frustrated with him. Ok, a lot of the time. She is pretty hard on him at first, but she owns that she is kind of a hard-ass. And I loved watching them train. The book switches back and forth between their two point of views. I can’t even decide whose point of view I liked reading more. They both really liked each other but Daniel didn’t think Evie would give him the time of day romantically because she was all business, and Evie was just scared out of her mind to have feelings for someone. She is scared of losing them. I get that, but for a while in the first half of the book I was just screaming at her like her best friend, Tess, was to just get with the program and do something about her feelings!

I love Daniel. Evie kept calling him cocky, but I never really saw that in him. Not really, I did see that he was determined and stubborn, but never overly cocky. He did really enjoy pushing Evie’s buttons and it was hilarious to watch the two of them together. And when they finally did kiss, oh man. I was cheering them on a little bit. I loved it! And I really liked his determination to find out what her tattoo on the back of her neck meant. It was adorable.

I know that the romance was a huge plus for the book, for me, but there is so much more to divinity than the awesome romance. There is a kick butt action and demon slaying. And cool weapons, and tech and flat out awesomeness. I really enjoyed the demon plot of the story. The demons are up to something big, that’s for sure. Divinity is going to be a favorite series of mine. I can just feel it. I need to read the prequel book and the next book in the series ASAP. Fans of paranormal and supernatural NEED to read this series. It had more of a new adult vibe to me because Evie and Daniels characters appear to be around 23, but it is classified as Adult.

    It really sounds like shadowhunters! That aside, it will be pretty interesting to read about the interactions between Evie and Daniel. Can’t wait to read the book!
