Shadow Hunter is a promising start to the Execution Underground (EU) by Kait Ballenger. Damon Brock is one of the Execution Underground best men he has taken an oath to protect the humans from the dangerous creatures that lurk and seek to harm them. Damon has been tracking the person responsible for taking his closest friend and partner Mark. Locating him in Rochester Damon has requested a transfer to seek his own justice for Mark and the sister he left behind. Tiffany Solow lost everything the day her brother was killed not only did she lose the only family she had left she also lost the man who captured her heart in a letter. Now determined to find the person responsible she has inserted herself into the seedy underground of Rochester. The closer Damon gets to Mark's killer the stranger things become and when he comes face to face with his best friends sister things are about to take a turn. Determined not only to get justice for his friend, Damon must also try to keep Tiffany safe and with things happening that can't be explained there are no guarantees he will be able to do either. I enjoyed reading Shadow Hunter and look forward to reading Twilight Hunter book 1 of the Execution Underground. Reviewing with Book Monster Reviewsshow more

4,5 STARS This is the story of how the Rochester Division of the Execution Underground was started. But to know (and understand) why a new Division was necessary, we need to go back a little... Damon Brock requested the transfer to Rochester. After the last mission, where EVERYTHING that shouldn't go wrong, DID go wrong... All he wants is revenge. Damon wants payback for the killing of his best friend and fellow Hunter; Mark Solow. Damon has closed himself off from the world around him. He's always been a loner - but he's even cut the string to the one person who knew him by heart. Not by face- since they've never met, only written letters to each other. (It's a long story. Let me just say; exchanging letters started as forced by the Execution underground, but that's not how it continued.) Anyways.... (back to topic) There's a reason why Damon requested Rochester. (Other than it should be relatively quiet supernatural wise *cough, cough*). The vampire who killed Mark should be there somewhere. All he needs to do- is to find him.... Tiffany Solow misses her brother like hell. Mark was the only family she had left in this world. Unless you count B, but then... He was responsible for Mark's death. How would she ever be able to forgive him? Putting all her skill, determination, good looks and stubbornness to the test; may Hell or High water come - Tiffany WILL find the vampire who staked her beloved brother. Sooo... What happens when two different and equally stubborn people met? When both want revenge, both want the same vampire? Will they be able to put pasts hurt behind them and work together? I have NO idea where to start. None. Well, I can tell you I LOVED Shadow Hunter. Absolutely, freaking loved the book. From the beginning to the very end. Even the end - although it was... Nope, NOT going there. Damon and Tiffany are both stubborn (I do think I mentioned that). To tell you the truth, I think a donkey would be more agreeable. Seriously. I wanted to walk up to Damon and smack him up on his thick head. He knew who Tiffany was when they met - and he didn't tell her. And yet... I wanted to hug him, as well. He did everything to protect Tiffany - even when she didn't want him to. And Tiffany... Sigh. Brave, stubborn, left with impossible choices, and STILL stands by who she is. Her inner core. (Closing eyes) In addition to reading Damon and Tiffany's story (well, part of their story), we get a quick peek at the rest of the new Rochester Division. (Oh my god.. Just saying. I swear - I'm STILL fanning myself over these guys!!) Shadow Hunter is... Well, how shall I describe those pages? Gut-wrenching. An emotional rollercoaster. Tear-inducing. Filled with sprinkles of hope and love. Toe-curling. Breath taking. Throw-to-the-wall kinda book. The ending was the absolute hardest part to read for me. It was... rough. (That's the best way to describe the event). And yet...The ending fitted so perfectly with the rest of the book. I wouldn't want it any other way. Yes, the ending was emotional hard to read. I cried, I seethed. I wanted to throw the book at the nearest wall.... But. It was RIGHT. Sometimes the ending isn't the way we (the readers) want it to be. Then the author should get even more credit for doing it. For keeping true towards the story, the characters and themselves. Kait Ballenger have created something new and amazing with her new series; Execution Underground, and if Shadow Hunter is a taste of what Kait has to offer... wow. Sign me up for more! Trust me when I tell you this; you HAVE to put Kait Ballenger on your MUST READ LIST, because boys and girls.... She is THAT good. Now, if you'll all excuse me... I have a date with a book.... Twilight Hunter. (Yes - THAT book. The first book in Kait's series. And no... This is MY copy. Mine! Hands off!!!)show more
