What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Once she was the hunter, but now she is the hunted…

Demons and half-breeds rule the darkness in a mortal world rampant with dangers beyond imagining. It’s where they hide, prowl, party… and feed. Rowyn Sinclair’s job is to track and hunt them.

Rowyn is a Hunter and angel-born—a mortal with angelic essence flowing in her veins—and she’s going after demons with a vengeance.

When the Council offers her a job to hunt a human-killing demon, Rowyn must work with Jax, the sexy and dangerous warrior who has a vendetta of his own.

But Rowyn is hiding a dark secret… something that’s always been there… a secret that could change everything…

*Recommended for mature YA+ due to language* 

Thoughts on Dark Hunt

Shadow and light

I really enjoyed this urban fantasy, it has just the right amount of action, magic and adventure. I’m marking it a 4, instead of a 5 however, due to the similarities with the new series set in the same world. Shadow and Light is older, and I might not have even noticed, except I read the beginning of the new series just yesterday. Same author, so it’s ok, but it struck me as formulaic.

Regardless, it’s still entertaining and opens a new universe I am excited to explore.


  • New universe (new to me).
  • Great characters.
  • Characters have human foibles, which is perfect in a world of magic.
  • Things are answered, but nothing is solved.


  • I figured out what she was very early on…. subtitle. If it was really a mystery, that should have been changed. 🤷‍♀️

My Final Verdict on Dark Hunt

4 out of 5 Stars

Entertaining and fast paced, this Urban Fantasy kicks off a completed series – all of which are available on Kindle Unlimited. Decent for your TBR list.
