5.0 out of 5 starsThis one is the best one yet!
Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2019
I've been a long-time reader of my medical peer, Jamie Davis. I have to say this book is his best work yet. The stubborn refusal of Quinn & the mix of technology & magic are a winning combination. I can not wait for the next in the series!
5.0 out of 5 starsFascinating world for those that love a bit of sci-fi with magic!

I really loved this book it was a fascinating twist of tech and magic and the world building drew me in right away. I really like the MC Quinn she is fiesty and seems to intuitively be able to tap into her new found (always had) abilities.
I look forward to follow this series and seeing what her Huntress clan can accomplish together!
I have to say this was enjoyable to read and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. It was a good strong start with real strong character. Will be nice to see where Quinn and Taylor will lead me to.
Enjoyed reading about Quinn and company. The premise is interesting although cloaked in an obvious good versus evil storyline. Good character development and am willing to keep reading to see where this goes.

If you are reading SF (and this one looks to be a blend of urban fantasy and sci-fi) you need to give it a certain amount of suspension of belief. But there are limits. This story asks for way too much in that regard. Not in the sci-fi or technical elements, but in the characters and their responses. I wasn't able to get past the first quarter of the story as it went seriously off the rails
5.0 out of 5 starsA Great Character Driven Story that is just a lot of fun!!

This is book is a combination of Urban Fantasy, with a very light touch of the new Genre on the Block – LitRPG (only a smidge though). It is fast paced, compelling, with some fun characters, good dialogue, and an interesting storyline that keeps adding bits to increase both the tension and the enthralling nature of the story. The story follows a young woman called Quinn Faust. Quinn was abandoned as a baby with only an amulet and a note that had her name on it. She has always thought that the amulet has provided her with some protective abilities, some foresight to when danger is coming. Quinn and her friend Taylor have just graduated, and have been offered paid internships at a new IT company called VirSync. Taylor is what one could only call a complete computer geek, but in the nicest possible way, as she has mad skills when it comes to computer programming. Quinn on the other hand is ok, but she is incredibly athletic, loves sport, and martial arts, so both of them made good candidates for the internship as it has a strong athletic component as it is to train new soldiers. However, on their first ‘training’ night, things go horribly wrong for Quinn, and when they are tasked to hunt down and ‘kill’ a target in a supposed game with Vampires and Werewolves, her target actually becomes a person, and her amulet starts to strange things. It is from here that the book goes from being about two College Grads trying out at there first job, to a story about mysterious legends of Hunters, amulets of protection and power, and Magic that can bring forth Demons, including those that can inhabit the bodies of those with unclean souls. There is an outstanding amount of world building that has gone into this book, from the detail that has gone into the magic system, the items, the Hunter Clans, and the Mages, Demons and the magic associated with them. It makes for a great read when the Author has put so much thought into the background of the story and their characters. Quinn is a great character, again, the Author has made a lot of effort to build her up slowly, giving us some decent background, enough to keep us interested, but certainly wanting more (I know I want book 2 now, like NOW), Clark and Miranda are brilliant, I do have to admit, I did find Taylor a little annoying at times, but that could just be her personality, and the fact I work with a lot of this type of person. Quinn definitely makes up for any short-comings in characters though, with the quick fire attitude and comments, there are times when you are just laughing out loud at her. This is developing into a fun, fast paced and excellent book with a lot of really fascinating qualities that just draw you and keep you riveted to the book, until you realise it is 4am and you have to get up in 2hrs for work. I think this has something for everyone, especially if you like anything with the prefix ‘Urban”. I’m generally a Sci-Fi person, but I love Jamie Davis’ books, and this does not disappoint, he continues to write exceptional character driven stories that are just a lot of fun to read – get into it now!!
4.0 out of 5 starsInteresting NA/YA book; great start
Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2019
This is a series starter by an author I really like and one I’ve never read before, which I really like to read new authors. To add to that, it’s a YA/NA genre book which I will admit is a genre I’m ambivalent about. I have teens of my own, and that affects my reading about them in a not good way. Anyway, this book was very interesting. I love the plot, the characters are interesting, and the action is great. I found some of the decisions that Quinn made a little frustrating; she seemed too smart and savvy to make such irrational and immature decisions…one of the reasons I am reluctant to read YA/NA books. LOL! However, this was still a good book, and I am definitely looking forward to finding out what happens next. 4 ½ stars. Recommend, and I was provided a copy which I voluntarily reviewed.
