Genre: Paranormal/YA

Teenager Shanna Hunt has been hunting demons since her parents were murdered by them. She's used to doing things alone, her own way, but one fateful night throws her into the company of a team of hunters, each specializing in a particular kind of monster: vampires, werewolves, witches, shape-shifters... This newly-formed team should be an unstoppable force for whatever is out there picking off individual hunters across the globe, but their first battle together against the monsters of the night could be their last. (Goodreads Synopsis)

I received this book as a review request by the author and on the whole I enjoyed it.
The story will no doubt appeal to Buffy fans and those who like young heroines tackling those demon hoards.
The plot moves along nicely and there is plenty of action. The characters are mostly good, though there were a couple of POV slips and I personally would have preferred if the author had picked just one or two characters' viewpoints. As it is, we see through nearly all the characters' eyes at one point or another and I felt it made the reader more detached as you didn't bond with particular characters as much and get involved in their story.
That aside though, this is an enjoyable tale and should please readers of YA paranormal.
