Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1) By Maggie Alabaster


This is book one and is a slow burn. Juliet is a demon hunter who is trying to save the humans from the latest demon scheme. You do see Juliet meet several guys that make you wonder who will be part of her harem. This was an entertaining story to read filled with action. I do recommend reading this book. Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1) 2.5 Stars

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review. As I’ve said before, I always give honest reviews whether people appreciate them or not.

This story begins with Juliet alone and hunting demons. Ok, no problem. The woman has a sword, some knives and she knows how to use them. Girl power! Towards the end of her shift she’s visited by a Shade. While she’s afraid, she isn’t about to cower before it so she asks why it’s hunted her down. Apparently the Shade is there to warn her about the end of humankind? Juliet heads back to headquarters where she tells her team leader, Malachai, what happened. The rest of the team trickles in and she tells them all what happened.

As usual, Juliet decides to take her next shift by herself, almost gets killed, then meets up with a demon/shifter/human hybrid friend of hers. Kannen ends up fighting demons with her and they have coffee talking about what’s been going on in the city (Sydney, Australia). They end up, on and off, teaming up together to investigate. They get some leads, fight some demons and drink incredible amounts of coffee and/or booze.

This is the first story I have read from Ms. Alabaster. It looked interesting so I thought I would give it a try. Sighs. All in all in wasn’t a bad story. I appreciated the fact that while Juliet, as with all main characters, had a few issues, she still managed to be strong. All the ‘supporting’ characters were interesting and reasonably written. I found the story’s tempo to be slow for the first seventy percent or so. It got better the last thirty percent. I’d also like to point out that the blurb says “this is a slow burn reverse harem and the heat level will rise in the next book”. Maybe this is why the tempo was too slow for me. I didn’t see how this was even a reverse harem though. I saw that other readers gave this book Five Stars, and that’s fine. I just didn’t enjoy this one at all.
Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1) Juliet is a demon hunter. She is out one night, when she is approached and warned by a shade, and then everything gets turned upside down. The description says this is a slow burn RH, and it means slow burn. In this book we meet, three guys that I’m pretty sure will end up in her harem, but other than some attraction, there isn’t really romance or any kind of steam. I liked seeing Juliet and her crew trying to figure out the mystery - they are all snarky with tons of attitude. I really liked Juliet, and the over-arching story was good, I will be checking out book 2, to find out when happens next :) Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1) Fast action that doesn't run over the storyline, characters with witty interaction, and a slow burn possible love interest. Throw in magic, demons, and chaos and you have a quick and fun read.

Slamdunk! Maggie doesn't hesitate unleashing one brilliantly composed spin with one chart topping heart pounding storyline and gripping plot, revving this baby up full throttle, fusing this gem together flawlessly. Revealing the drama, intrigue, turmoil, misgivings, mounting suspense and precarious situations along with a boatload of danger, you have one mind-blowing masterpiece. Anarchy, escapades and havoc run amuck, booting this gem into a tempest, bursting it into a frenzy with an life-altering realization. The dynamics and presentation in layer upon layer that you peel back with each page your drawn into this web so deep until everything else ceases to exist. The attraction and chemistry sizzles, alluring and mesmerizing, binding them to one another beautifully. The realism and authenticity of the characters as their on point personalities blend and connect along with the graphically detailed scenes that paints a majestic backdrop making the storyline pop. Fantastic job Maggie, thanks for sharing this bad boy with us. Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1) This is book 1 of a new series and I loved it! The world building is fantastic and has some pretty amazing characters I look forward to book 2!!💕 Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1)

I fight the shadows.

My name is Juliet Mackenzie. I'm a Demon Hunter.

I patrol the streets at night to keep the city safe from demons. Don't worry, I only kill the bad ones.

Unfortunately some of them get bad ideas, like trying to take over the world.

With the help of a hot demon, a wizard with more in his pockets than tricks, and some shifters with amazing taste in women's shoes, I've got this.

If the demons don't get me first.

**Warning, this is a slow burn reverse harem with adult content and language. The heat level will rise in the next book.** Hunting Darkness (City of Darkness #1)
