The Demon's Daughter by Paula Altenburg + Featured Freebie

The Demon's Daughter (Demon Outlaws, #1)Hunter is the only man capable of killing the demons that left theworld in ruins. But when he’s hired by a notorious priestess to bring a thief to justice, the Demon Slayer gets more than he bargains for.

Airie was raised in an abandoned temple as a priestess’s daughter, having no idea of her true origins. In a time when any half-breed spawn of a demon is despised by mortal and immortal alike, not knowing the truth is the only thing keeping her safe.

Forced to flee her home in the wake of disaster and discovery of who she is, Airie must place her trust in a man who believes she should never have been born. And when a demon uprising threatens lives he has sworn to protect, Hunter has to make a choice: abandon Airie to an uncertain fate, or overcome his own personal demons and love her for who she truly is.




My Rating: 3/5

The Demon's Daughter was a great read. With elements of paranormal creatures and romance, this book is nice read.

Airie was a wonderful character. She showed a lot of strength in dealing with everything-from finding out her true parentage to facing her father. And she was the kind of person who would stop and take in a starving little boy despite the difficulty in caring for him. I found her to be very likable.

Hunter was somewhat of an enigma. I took until the last quarter of the book before I truly figured him out. He was fine, though not the best hero I've seen in a romance book. But, I liked him.

The problem with this book is that it was rather lackluster. It wasn't bad, nor was it particularly good. It was just okay. Everything about it was just okay. And that made it somewhat forgettable and uninteresting. 

I don't want to make it sound like I disliked the book, but I can't say that I loved it either. It was very average. Not bad-just not very good.

If you want to give this book a try-it had its good elements. It just didn't work for me.
