What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Got a demon that needs killing? I’m your girl.

On paper, I’m a Blood Sorceress. I can whip up the spells of your dreams. It’s a legal occupation–barely–but mostly a cover.

My real job is protecting my city from the monsters of the Dark Realms. I’m the resident demon slayer, and occasionally those suckers escape. Then it’s up to me. I’ve even got a side hustle using their blood for my sorcery biz. It’s gruesome, but that’s life.

Things get complicated when I start clashing with a sexy AF bounty hunter. His name’s Declan, and we’re after the same necromancer. Bounty hunters are my enemy, and his stupidly hot body keeps getting in my way.

The only way to save the city is to team up with Declan. I have two goals: don’t kill him & don’t screw him. Both easier said than done, since self control isn’t really my thing. But it’s a race against time to catch the demon, and there’s no way in hell I’ll fail at that.

Thoughts on Demon Slayer


Remember those suave and talented, but immensely dangerous sisters over in Darkest area of the magical city? Well, this novel is the start of their stories!

The sister in white, the ice queen Aeri, is much more than she seems… but we already kinda knew that considering her appearance in other books in this universe.

If you haven’t read them, that’s ok – not required, just helps set the background and fill in some blanks.

Like most of Linsey Hall’s books, this is a slam dunk read, plunging us into this world while crafting a delicate balance between what is already known, and what is coming.

  • Fast paced.
  • I adore these sisters.
  • The world building just keeps growing.
  • Declan is annoyingly awesome.


  • Mystery, lol.
