Rosalind lived for the hunt. Now she might die for it.
Rosalind's mission is simple: hunt demons and mages. As a member of the Brotherhood, she's dedicated to protecting the world from dark magic. Someone's got to stop the supernatural bloodlust - plus, hunting's a hell of a lot more exciting than her computer science classes.
Everything's going to plan until she meets Caine, a mage in league with the demons. He's scary as hell and just as sexy. Worse, he's brought her a warning: rumors are spreading that Rosalind is a mage, too.
Now, the Hunters have chosen their next target - and it's her.
While she works to prove her innocence, Rosalind must form an uneasy alliance with Caine. But the Brotherhood are closing in. If she can't figure out who to trust, and fast, she'll be exiled to the realm of the very demons she once hunted.
The first book in The Vampire's Mage series, perfect for fans of Ilona Andrews, Karen Marie Moning, and fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The story was awesome and I loved the characters. I did not want to pause or stop listening! I was able to go back and listen again if I felt like I missed an important piece of the story.
I love a kick butt heroine. Rosalind is a fantastic character. She is compassionate, loving, trusting, and a great fighter. She is not afraid to protect her friends and I love that about her.
Laurel did a great job with all the different characters. I love the different voices she used for the women and men.
Yes! I really had a hard time stopping to do other things!
This is my first Audiobook and at first it was difficult to focus on listening, but once I got into the story it was fabulous. I could listen in the car. This gives me a way to "read" all the time even if I am cooking, or driving.
I started the book hoping for a kick ass heroine and a big world filled with interesting characters but everything was damned to hell at 20% of the book. I can’t figure out if there was even a plot at the 60% mark of the book.
I hope not. This is the first terrible plot I read so far.
She's a good narrator. She does well on other gender's voices. She gave life to the characters.
There isn’t much build-up on the world. On the first 10 mins of the audiobook, the story is already at a point where all demons are bad blah blah and what not. The book expects us think demons/vamps are bad because Rosline thinks and hears so.
The only redeeming factor of this book is Caine. He is smart, funny and sarcastic at times. However, everything is ruined with Rosline’s horrible thoughts and comments. It felt as if I were in the head of a 12 year old girl.
Rosline is part of the brotherhood which practises aren’t so moral. Rosline is basically lied to her entire life on how the brotherhood is “good” and is the saviour of mankind blah blah. When she is hunted by them, she learns the truth on the bad practises of the brotherhood.
The first 60% of the book is basically like this:
“Oh my soul belongs to the brotherhood even though I am what they hate! I must return to them to see if they can forgive me for being a witch! Caine is so nice to me but he is a demon so I must hate him! Oh wait I must be nice to him……Ah but he is a demon so yes I must tell him that he is immoral!” – this is where I stopped giving a f---k. Too much whining and meandering thoughts.
Even faced with all the truth and facts, she still wants to return to the brotherhood expecting unicorns to rain from the sky; and that they will accept her back. I lost count how many times Caine and the other characters have pointed it out to Rosline of the consequences of returning to brotherhood. Stop making the readers go through this insanity!
90% of the good moments are ruined by the mean and nasty words form her mouth.
I'm not sure about this book. Rosalind is immature , stuburn and not very bright. I don't want to call her stupid because alot of her actions are based on losing her belief system. However, every time she declares herself a warrior and insist she get involved in situations beyond her expertise , I cringe. She also tends to lose focus at the worst times and argues about things that aren't important at the moment. I would hate to have to depend on her in a fight. Overall the story is ok and I'll probably get the next one to see how the characters developed. But I'm really not sure.

Good story, a bit jumpy in places, but it is read well, andI the difference. In the Demons was good.
