They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it…
Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.
Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?
Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.
Review by Courtney
Divinity by Patricia Leever introduces us to demon hunter Evelyn Brighton and the crew working under the Lebriga Corporation. The demon hunters and handlers live in a mansion/compound in Los Angeles, training and waiting for their next assignment to protect human kind from the demons that surround them. Enter Daniel the demon hunter. Evelyn finds herself annoyed with his presence and even more annoyed with the feelings that begin appear anytime he is near, but she is ordered with the task of training him in demon hunting.
I enjoyed the element of demon fighting and the characters found in the crew of hunters and handlers. Each has their own specialty that aids in the hunting process. There was a lot of action and of course demon fighting gadgets along with the ancient Divinity Blade that will only work for Eve. The relationship with Daniel and Eve was witty and fun. The progression was perfect, with no real angst. Eve is up front about everything and I really enjoyed that about her character, she held nothing back. I do feel that there could have been more, the story moved fast and there was a lot going on. I hope that the 2nd installment continues to follow Daniel and Eve through their demon hunting and their relationship. But, even if it continues with other characters I would still love to read it to see what happens next with the whole crew! 4 books!
