Publisher's Summary

Death was only the beginning. 

No one's afterlife is as depressing as Audrey's - at least that's what she believes after waking up dead without her memories and being promptly assigned to hunt demons for the rest of eternity. She's convinced there's been a cosmic mistake; after all, she'd rather discuss the color of her nails than break them on angelic weapons. It doesn't help that her trainer, Logan, is as infuriating as he is attractive.

When an ancient weapon of unparalleled power chooses Audrey as its wielder, attracting the attention of the ruler of Hell, Logan is the only one she can trust. With the Satan's eyes now fixed on Audrey, a battle for the safety of the living looms in the shadows.

Fans of The Mortal Instruments, Supernatural, and This Present Darkness won’t want to miss this epic story of unfailing love and adventure.

Amazing

Huntress is simply amazing. Julie Hall knocked it out of the park with this book. I could not listen to if fast enough. It was very well read and preformed. I loved it.

Not my cup of tea

There was to much religious preference in this book for me to really enjoy or like it, if it was a more neutral fictional story it would have been better but it just seem like the author was putting to much of her beliefs into the book for it to be enjoyable and fictional.

The brilliant start to an amazing series

Having read all the books in this series back when they came out on Kindle, I was THRILLED beyond compare to find out it was now on audio.

I'm always a little apprehensive about audio versions of books I love jut because I worry it won't match up to my imagination. But I wasn't disappointed. The narration is amazing. Her demon voices are great and some of her other voices (like one she does for a little girl) are so spot on, it's like she read my mind!

The first book in the series is epic, but each book that follows is better than the last. So buckle up, cuz you've only hit the first hill of this roller coaster ride!

Unique & Faithful

The story line is well written and the author clearly enjoyed writing the novel. The characters were well distinguished and interwoven. The book was a bit more Faith based than I thought it would be, but in no way was it a bad thing. Definitely worth a listen or read for middle school to high school teens.

Interesting story line

This book was really interesting to read. As an afterlife book goes, it was filled with adventure and soul searching. As a fiction book it’s not laid out to be an exact account as to what happens in the afterlife, however it has amazing ideas of how life can go on.
The characters were well thought out and were for the most part likable. It was easy to follow them along their journey through the book. The pace moved quickly and kept me turning the pages.
I am really looking forward to more of this series.

As an advanced listener of audible I received a copy of this audio book for an honest review.

Angel and Demon Battle

Audrey wakes up- to find herself dead. With no memories of her past or what happened to her, she tries her best to fit into this strange new afterworld she now part of. When she is assigned the job of being a Hunter to hunt down the demons roaming earth, she is pretty sure she is in the wrong place. No matter how hard she trains, it seems that she has no real fighting skills, but he biggest talent is making her stoic trainer Logan irritated. But what Audrey does not know is that she has a larger role in this world than she ever could have guessed- and war is coming.

I have seriously been eyeballing Julie's books for forever, I even know the firsts in multiple series, I just had not had the chance to read one yet so when the opportunity to listen to Huntress occurred I was so excited. The pacing of the story made this very easy to get lost in the plot, I ending up reading it in a day because I was so curious about everything and I wanted answers (patience is not my strong suit). I rooted for Audrey and her headstrong ways and I was crossing my fingers for a romance that seems pretty doomed at the moment (but I have hope!). The world Julie made was really interesting, being almost magic while at the same time having the undercurrent of religion and faith, and her version of demons was scary and realistic. Overall this was a great start to an otherworldy urban fantasy-esque series.

I listened to the audiobook and I think the narrator did a great job bringing Audrey to life. She gave her personality and the sass I really appreciated, making Audrey seem like a real (undead) person I could connect to. Also, she did a great job of giving the side characters distinctive voices so I always knew who was talking and I love narrators who can make it feel like a full performance. After listening to Afterlife, I would highly recommend it as an audiobook and I would love to listen to the rest of the series.

And yes, this is a series where only a little bit of Audrey's fate has been revealed. I have so many ideas and theories as to what is really going on with Audrey, only some of them I have been right about and others only hints that I need to learn more about. Julie does a great job of leaving just enough bread crumbs to lead the reader in a certain direction without giving almost anything away and making me desperate for more. This is my first read by Julie but I have already added all her other series to my wishlist.

So unique!

I absolutely loved this story! The story and world are such a unique concept and I loved the Christian aspect of it. It was funny, mysterious, thought provoking and challenging. I loved the authors unique take on the after life and how it blended fantasy with belief. I really enjoyed traversing this world with a very relatable main character Audrey.
The story has lots of mystery, action and a touch of romance and there is still lots to be unveiled about Audrey’s story. The writing was also great, describing the imagery with lots of detail and adjectives really helping you get into the story.
However the narrator was not my favourite, I just struggled with the tone of her voice.
But definitely a great read, I recommend to anyone who loves fantasy and is looking for something a little different.

Intriguing first instalment

‘After all this time, could it be that a mere girl would be the key to his freedom? Oh the irony. He smiled to himself. Deceiving a girl had been the start of his imprisonment. Perhaps it would also be the end.’

Audrey wakes up in the afterlife with no memory of her previous life. Before she can adapt to her surroundings, she is promptly assigned to the enigmatic Logan to be trained to hunt demons. When an ancient weapon of unparalleled power chooses her as its wielder, Audrey finds herself under the scrutiny of Satan himself who needs the weapon to escape his bondage.

Huntress is the first instalment in the After Life series and was my first compelling introduction to the author. From the offset, she drew me in effortlessly with a glimpse of a stunning world consisting of the afterlife where angels and demons battle for the souls of mortals.

The strength of the book lies in the fascinating world building that the author has managed to create. The process that humans go through after death, the empathy link that allows them to feel the emotions of others and the bond that forms as a result of one kiss.

Audrey is a flawed, relatable and appealing protagonist who the reader easily identifies with. Her journey of self discovery and spiritual awakening was a revelation to read. The chapter in which she meets God was my favourite and I genuinely welled up in places. The message being clear; that God’s love knows no bounds and that we need to have faith in the fact that everything He does is for a reason.

The secondary characters were equally likeable. Romana, Kaitlyn and in particular, the prophetess, Deborah were intriguing. I suspect we’ve only scratched the surface of Logan’s personality and I look forward to learning more about his past as well as Audrey’s new mentor, Hugo.

Huntress was a well executed and intriguing twist on the usual angels versus demons lore that I have become accustomed to. With themes of love, redemption and salvation, this was an encouraging start to what looks to be a promising series.

I received a free advanced audible copy of Huntress and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
