Publisher's Summary

Unregistered paranormal Caleb Jansen only wants a normal life. But when a demon murders his brother, Caleb knows he has to avenge Ben's death, no matter what the cost. Unfortunately, his only allies belong to an extremist group who would kill Caleb if they found out about his talent.

Gray is a wandering spirit, summoned to hunt and destroy demons by drinking their blood. This hunt goes horribly wrong, and for the first time in his existence Gray is trapped in a living, human body. Caleb's body - and Caleb is still in it.

Hotshot federal agent John Starkweather thinks he's seen it all. But when he's called to exorcise Caleb, he finds a creature which isn't supposed to exist outside of stories. For Gray is a drakul: a vampire. Having spent his life avoiding the government as an unregistered 'mal, Caleb can't let himself trust a federal exorcist, no matter how sexy. And he certainly isn't going to give into the heat growing between them and sleep with Starkweather.

Can Starkweather win Caleb's trust and convince him he isn't the enemy? Can Caleb keep Gray under control, as the drakul experiences the temptation of a living body for the first time? Because if he fails and Gray gives in to bloodlust, Starkweather will have no choice but to kill them both.

Interesting new twist to Paranormal romance

I really love Jordan L Hawk, and am saddened to write a less than stellar review of any of her books, but I can't call this one great.
Maybe it's the narrators interpretation, but Caleb comes across as a whiny ass. I like Grey and John, but really Caleb is irritating, and the series revolves around him (and Grey inside him). I will be continuing with the series, since I find JLH's twist on a future with paranormal as a given part of society, a great story line.

Not my cuppa

Any additional comments?

Since I didn't care for the narrator, at all, this has probably colored my overall impression of the story. He sounded like an overzealous teacher reading to a middle-school English class. With reference to the story, I found the prose rather simplistic and somewhat clumsy, and the characters bordering on unlikable. This is the first and last of this series for me.

I have owned the first SPECTR SERIES for ages, but when I came across it on Audible Escape, I felt it was time. So much happens in such a short amount of time that I have listened and read book 1 twice, and am even listening to it while I write this review.

Agent Starkweather (John) and Caleb get off to a rocky start. With an entity possessing Caleb's brother's dead body, then doing a body jump into his when a mission by zealots to rid the dead body of the entity is fubared.

Now Caleb finds he is alive, when he died, orrr almost died, or died and then was saved, or something. He is all confused, and scared and ticked off that now thanks to SPECTR not doing its job, his brother's corpse was possessed, he has no clue what happened to his sister inlaw, he is packing around a demon/ not demon called Grey, and now he will be registered as a Mal with SPECTR. To make it all worse, Grey wants to sniff and hunt down another demon like some bloodhound and EAT IT!😱

This first book is so fast paced, you need to strap in and grab the " OH SH!T!!! " handle. The characters are great, and snarky in just the right way.

I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Umm, Scratching My Head

Ummm, not sure what I just read. It did have a lot of action, paranormal, and urban fantasy aspects to the story; however, I am still unsure how the male/male romance plays into the story. There just wasn't enough meat for me to really get into the storyline beside the fact that it is normal people fighting against paranormal people.

This specific video review will be included in the October 2018 wrap-up.

Definitely hot!

A little shorter than I'd like, but I guess that's why there is a book #2.

Narrator not as bad as reviews lead you to believe

The narrator really isn’t as bad as a lot of the reviews say. Sure, he’s not the best, and he made a few choices I don’t agree with, but he’s certainly not the worst.

The story was decent, some things feel maybe a bit rushed, but the book is obviously setting up the series.

Nice start to a series.

This is the first book by the author I have read. I think the narrator did a great job reading an differentiating characters, Caleb/Gray were easily recognizable by the voice. The pacing was great and easy to listen to. I enjoyed the story, building a new world (to me). I had enough understanding to know what was going on without becoming weighed down with losing track of events and I limited characters. I look forward to learning more about Gray's character and learning how and Caleb and John learn how to share. I will look for the next book in the series to see the story progress.

Great vampire possession, demon hunter, sexy book!

Hunter of Demons by Jordan L. Hawk and narrated by Bard Manger is a novel with good and evil people looking for the supernatural. This is a world where supernatural is known and distrusted unless the person is trained to be a professional. A guy is trying to find the body of his dead but possessed brother but gets possessed himself. It is not as it seems. The Fed sent out to help him is hot! It is a gay love story along with a horror story so if this bothers you go read something else but you will miss out on a good story. I plan to follow this series!
Narration is fantastic!

good story

narrator was a little bland, very monotone, no difference in voices so it got confusing keeping track if who was who.... story was good, narration wasnt horrible to ruin the story, was an enjoyable quick read.

But...

I like this story a lot. But the main character bugs the absolute crap out of me. He head is so far up his own ass i have no idea how he's made it this far. No matter how many times Gray has shown him he's not a demon or is able to co exsite. He constantly berates Grey. The same with John.

Although i have my problems i do like the plot. I just wish they had gotten a better narrator.
