Blog Tour / Book Musings - The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde


Welcome to the blog tour of The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde. I am your host today and I am reviewing it.



The Unlikeable Demon Hunter 
Nava Katz 
Book One
Deborah Wilde

Genre: Urban Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Te Da Media
Date of Publication: April 18, 2017
Number of pages: 420
Word Count: 87,400
Cover Artist: Damonza


Blurb :

Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.


My Musings :

Nice work on the book name! It sure made me give it a second look. And the book cover? It's so colourful and gives attitude which perfectly suits Nava and gives a hint of what is coming in the tale.

There are times when I look at a book and the author and give it a chance without an inkling of what is going to happen. And there are times when I regret it but.. there's a big but because this one? It rocked! I  was laughing out loud at Nava's antics by the end of a couple of chapters.

The author has done a great job of hooking the reader with a bit of fun at the start with Nava's misbehavior. There were a few emotional parts too with the way the family doesn't believe in her. It had me frowning and feeling for Nava. But it passed and Nava was back in business annoying and making people fall in like with her at the end.

The author's writing makes for so much fun. It's easy to read and follow. The flow is amazing because I was so into the story I didn't realise that it was a longer book actually. There was no pause at all in the action and humorous situations to bore me. My reaction at the end was like ' I have to read the next book NOW! ' I am so looking forward to the sequel and when I saw the book cover on Goodreads, Nava's pose totally had me giggling. I can imagine what kind of trouble she is going to be! But I digress.

I actually loved the concept of a lone girl among the guys. It had me hopping in excitement to know what kind of trouble Nava is going to bring for them. Each person of the Brotherhood is unique and likeable. And the most likeable person? Nava, of course! Though she has lots of attitude, she has a vulnerable side to her which I can connect with. She is so loveable because of it. And speaking of Rohan, I was biased about him even in the first scene where I met him because of his name. Enough said! He is so tough and rough and has a light side to him at times. I am looking to knowing more about Star Rohan.

I can go on and on about the book but I would like to wrap up saying that if I have a chance to read the author's works, I would unhesitatingly pick them up.

I received a copy for reviewing purposes. This doesn't affect my review in any way.

My one line review : A fun tale which will make you laugh and sit up straight in equal parts.

My rating : 5/5

My reread factor : 4/5

Book Blitz - Ponni's Beloved by Sumeetha Manikandan




Blurb

Kalki Krishnamurthy’s Ponniyin Selvan is a masterpiece that has enthralled generations of Tamil readers. Many authors have written phenomenal books in Tamil literature after Kalki Krishnamurthy, but Ponniyin Selvan remains the most popular, widely-read novel. It has just the right mixture of all things that makes an epic – political intrigue, conspiracy, betrayal, huge dollops of romance, infidelity, seduction, passion, alluring women, unrequited love, sacrifice and pure love.

Excerpt


“I have brought important information for all of you. That’s why I asked the noble Sambuverayar to invite us all here. Maharaja Sundara Chola’s health has been steadily deteriorating. I secretly asked our royal physician, and he says that there is absolutely no chance of his health improving. His days are numbered. And it is up to us, to think about the future of the royal throne.”

“What do the astrologers say?” asked one of the noble men.

“Why ask the astrologers? Haven’t you seen the comet that has been appearing in the sky, for the past few weeks? They say whenever a comet appears, there will be death in the royal family,” said another.

“I have asked the astrologers as well, and they say that the king might live for some more time. Anyway, we will have to decide who should ascend the throne next,” said Pazhuvetarayar.

“What is the use of discussing that now? Aditya Karikalan was made the Crown Prince two years ago,” said one of the noblemen.

“True. But before he took that decision, did Sundara Chola consult any of us? We all have stood by the Chola Kingdom with loyalty and have sacrificed our sons and grandsons in the battlefield. Even now warriors from each of our clans have gone to Elangai to fight for the Chola Kingdom. Don’t you think we deserve the right to be consulted about who should be the next heir to the throne? Even King Dasaratha asked his council of ministers, before deciding to crown Rama. But our Sundara Chola didn’t think it necessary to consult anyone…”

Book Musings - Chirp by Ann Everett

Title : Chirp
Author : Ann Everett
Genre : Contemporary Romance
Source : Free copy from the author

Blurb :

A woman hiding from her future…..

Heiress to the largest steel company in America, twenty-year-old, socially awkward Blaze Bledsoe hides out at Dessie Bishop’s farm. For the last three years, Blaze has eluded one investigator after another, but just when she thinks she’s safe, a PI closes in. Her luck is about to run out in more ways than one.

A man running from his past….

Rance Keller, a tough, hard-living ex-con, fresh out of prison for a crime he didn’t commit, arrives to claim the house his grandmother left him. Finding a strange girl living there, his plans for a solitary life take a turn. Her lack of modesty, no filter, and word-of-the-day fetish baffles him, but those big green eyes and sweet mouth have him losing sleep.

Welcome to Bluebird, Texas

Where two damaged people with secrets, discover trust can lead to passion.

My Musings :

While reading the book, I had only 2 thoughts - Wicked characters and it's one of those books!

By that, I mean it's the kind of book I can reread anytime and any number of times. It was a bit different from other books of the author. For one, it was a bit longer. That's how I felt when I was reading it. Each scene was detailed and vivid. Another is that it was a bit more graphic on details.

The author has done a great job of pairing an ex con with a mouthy virgin. Oh my! I love the couple! Where do I start? Rance is such a bad boy with a good heart. He comes with a big chip on his shoulder. But then life happened and so I can forgive his attitude. He has a huge heart and that shows clearly from the beginning in his interactions with Blaze. As for Blaze, wow, a totally unfiltered gal who spouts what comes to mind at all times. This makes for a very interesting few situations. There were places where I blurted out a few laughs. And that's what endears this book to me!

The story itself isn't too complicated. It's a bit straight forward but what makes it special are the characters. In addition to Rance and Blaze, I loved meeting Rance's brothers and their loves. Yeah they kind of find their own girls in this book. It all makes for a complementary side story. It adds to the charm of the small town story and sky rockets the romance vibe.

Speaking of romance, the heat was bit higher than compared to the author's other works. That was kind of expected because of Rance. The romance was hard and slow especially on Rance's part. He is so stubborn! Argh! I felt Blaze could have prolonged the ending a bit for Rance. Ha I would have loved to see him groveling a bit more.

I recommend this book to romance readers with a penchant for quirky characters.

I received a copy for reviewing purposes.

My one line review : A set of quirky characters and an adamant romance.

My rating : 5/5

My reread factor : 4/5

About the author

Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 15 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
