The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu

5 Stars.

A recommended read.

The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu is an awesome roller coaster of an read with a tough kick-butt heroine and some extremely fascinating secondary characters. In my opinion the author has really out done herself with this novel the writing is so beautifully poetic and darkly intense.

But if you're looking light romance then this isn't the book for you, I would describe it as a dark urban fantasy with more of an emphasis on the actual story than a romance. Which is a lot like Karen Marie Moning has done with her Faefever series...

If you've not already done so I would very much recommend that you read that you read the prequel Hunter Kiss first,otherwise you may find the story to be a little confusing at first. You can find Hunter Kiss in the novella Wild Thing which is also available on amazon...

Demon hunter Maxine Kiss wears her armor as tattoos, which unwind from her body to take on forms of their own at night. They stand between her and her enemies, just as Maxine stands between humanity and the demons breaking out from behind the prison veils. It is a life lacking in love, reveling in death, until one moment—and one man— changes everything.
