What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
I thought I understood power.
My parents taught me that magic attracts equal danger, and everything I’ve seen since becoming a demon contractor confirms it. I’ve witnessed how power twists and corrupts–and I’ve tasted power no human should wield.
I thought I knew greed.
Ambition and avarice drove my family into hiding. My parents died for someone else’s greed. I’ve never hunted anything in my life, but now I’m hunting their killer–with my demon’s help.
I thought I’d seen evil.
But with each step closer to my parents’ murderer, I’m uncovering a different sort of evil, piece by hidden piece. I’ve stumbled into an insidious web that silently, secretly ensnares everything it touches. My demon and I came as the hunters…
…but I think we might be the prey.
The Guild Codex includes two series, Demonized and Spellbound, which can be read and enjoyed all on their own; however, this book contains spoilers for Demon Magic and a Martini (Spellbound #4). If you were thinking about giving Spellbound a try, I recommend reading it first.
Thoughts on Hunting Fiends for the Ill-Equipped
These books just keep getting better! Two series are woven together, with overlapping characters and parallel plot lines, though each can, and does, stand on their own. Reading both, in order, simply enhances the experience and fills in the gaps in the story.
All that said, THIS SERIES! I adore Robin with everything that is in me. That girl is nerdy and insecure to her very soul, even though she puts on a brave face and front – one that almost fools those around her. Thrown into a world not of her choosing, for reasons she still can’t quite fathom, she is sinking fast in the deep end of demonology – fortunately, she has her very own demon, Zylas, to help her navigate the treacherous waters.
The mysteries deeps even further in this novel, with tensions rising higher and the stakes becoming more clear. We get a few answers, though a bucket full of more questions come with those morsels. The journal is still in play, along with the Uncle and his co-horts. Tori is a questionable ally, one Robin is unsure of – because though Tori is the heroine in the Spellbound series, she is an unknown player in Robin’s drama, and neither of them are talking to the other. I have a feeling book 4 in this series will smooth those edges and bring these two incredibly different FMC’s together. I can’t wait!
Overall, this is a fantastic Urban Fantasy, with well written characters and an overarching plot that does the series length justice. I am excited to see where Annette Marie takes it form here.
