Heart pounding and laugh out loud funny, USA Today Bestselling author K.F. Breene will take you on a magical joy ride you won’t soon forget.
Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn’t the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don’t have many options.
So dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old as sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day.
Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.
Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn’t know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage.
When diving into the world of self/indie published books on Kindle Unlimited, you never quite know what you’re going to get.
In my opinion, I landed on something pretty awesome with this one.
One of my favourite series is the early Anita Blake books, when it was more about the supernatural crimes than… well, if you know you know. This book reminds me of that. You’ve got a badass female character with a magical sword who’s also not afraid to use a gun as well as her own magic. An old, French, vampire who is powerful, rich and takes a little bit of a liking to the aforementioned badass woman and a fun and thrilling story of mages, demons and the warnings of power.
Oh, and two 60-something married mages who are absolutely hysterical every time they appear on the page? I had to mention them because they were one of the main reasons I was laughing out loud.
I’ll admit, though, this book won’t be for everyone. I don’t think Reagan, the main female character, is capable of saying anything serious. Every word out of her mouth was either sarcasm or a joke. And it works for me. It’s like reading my own stream of thoughts. The only difference being she’s actually saying it out loud whilst I try and be polite, but anyway… that’ll annoy people. Her maturity isn’t necessarily up there.
And our male lead is… the somewhat stereotypical, predictable vampire. But somehow, I don’t hate it?
If I had to call out the biggest downside though, I’d say the author was attempting too much. This book had… everything? If you could come up with an aspect of paranormal stories, it’s probably in this book, and that’s not an exaggeration. Hell, unicorns make an appearance. Unicorns! I’ve read my fair share of urban fantasy stories, much like this, and I didn’t see unicorns coming. And demons. And mages. And shifters. And elves. And, and, and, I could keep going. There’s so much, it doesn’t leave a ton of room for growth of many, if any of the aspects. So I’ve got to have high hopes that some of these aspects get explored more in future books.
TL;DR: Read this if you’re looking for a humour-filled, sarcasm-laden urban fantasy with plenty of magic, vampires and demons. Don’t read this if you’re very protective of the genre’s “greats” and believe that only one author can write a story such as this. You won’t like it, and you’ll go on to say that it’s not as good as *insert one of dozens of authors*.
