Back cover Blurb:

They are the obsidian shadows of my flesh - tattoos with minds, hearts, and dreams. By day, they protect me. But when night calls to them, they leave my body, dissolving into their true form - as demons…

Nomad born and bred, demon hunter Maxine Kiss has always relied upon herself to fight the darkness that surrounds her, the predators-human, zombie, and otherwise - who threaten the earth. But one man has penetrated her lonely life: Grant, the last of his kind. With music he is able to control any living creature…including demons. And now his life is in danger.

Haunted by the past, determined to change the future, Maxine soon understands that to save Grant, she has only one choice-to lose control, and release her own powers of darkness…

My Thoughts:

This story was a fast paced, thrill ride that I didn't want to get off. I am thoroughly enjoying Maxine's expanding relationship with Grant. I was equally happy with the back story that we received for Grant as well as Maxine's grandfather, Jack Meddle. Along the way we spend some time with Byron and even meet someone new, a lady named Killy. This story was descriptive and flowed very well. Liu has a spectacular imagination that makes her one to watch. I hope to see many more Hunter Kiss novels.

I rate this novel 5 stars
