Hunters - A new book by Aoife Sheridan

Hunters (Demon Series Part One) - Aoife Marie Sheridan

I received this book from the author for an honest review.


Abigail is a 19 year old demon hunter. Her life until she was 11 had been pretty brutal. She was taken in my Father Peter, a priest who taught her all about demons, after her parents and brother died. 


I'm a fan of the author, having read the first two installments in Sheridan's Saskia trilogy so I was really excited when I had the chance to review this book. 


Hunters shocked me, it's so much darker than The Saskia trilogy. As I began to read, one thing really stood out for me. Abigail has a huge drinking problem. Every time I read (something along the lines of) I need a drink or I need another drink, I got really annoyed. Abigail spent 3/4 of this book trying to get drink, drinking or dealing with a hangover. 


Abigail is a mess, this is evident from the start. She doesn't believe in herself and nobody else seems to either. The more I read, the more I understood why she had turned to drink, but I kept waiting and waiting for her to get a grip and overcome her problem or for someone else to actually offer her help instead of commanding her to stop. 


Apart from all that, I really did enjoy the book, something was always happening, but for the first half of the book I couldn't see where it was leading. There were so many elements but I couldn't figure out the link regardless of how much I racked my brain.


This book is well written but there are some parts that outshine the rest, like when Sheridan describes Abigail taking her phone out of her pocket in the freezing cold. It was that well written that I could almost feel it myself!!!!! 


There are parts in this book where Abigail shines, give the girl an argument and she wins hands down. She's wonderfully adept at winding people up (sometimes too much). 


Even though I couldn't really make sense of where this book was heading until about half way through, by 86% i was rewarded. SOO DID NOT SEE THAT ONE COMING!!!!!


Then it all kicked off.... Then it was over.... 


And I was like.... BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??????


A very good book, a little hard to read at times, but well worth it.
