by Anna Elliott – Demon hunting and single motherhood wouldn’t seem to go together, and indeed Aisling McKay has had nine months of struggle to make them work. She’s a kickass heroine in a post-End Days world, when demons walk the earth and wreak havoc. An American ex-pat and granddaughter of a legendary demon hunter, Aisling lives and works in London for a fairy-run agency that helps people who are being bedeviled by the supernatural. Her backup includes fellow hunter Rafe, who always has her back at work and off the job, and Templar Knight Kieran, who didn’t know his one episode of passion with Aisling had resulted in baby Willow. As if Aisling’s life weren’t complicated enough with the “normal” juggling of life and work, it would appear the demon world is planning a full-scale incursion, a Wild Hunt… and Aisling may be the key. How will she protect the world, her friends, herself and her baby? How will she stay out of hot water with the Order of the Knights Templar if they discover that Aisling’s grandfather may have created the rift that is letting the demons cross over into the mundane world… and that Willow is a Knight’s daughter?
Anna Ellliott has created a terrific cast of characters, and Aisling is a well-rounded and feisty protagonist. She’s strong and vulnerable, determined and frightened, passionate and disciplined… just the kind of person you want to spend time with. Thank goodness Elliott is planning to continue her adventures!
