Hunter is the only man capable of killing the demons that left the world in ruins. But when he’s hired by a notorious priestess to bring a thief to justice, the Demon Slayer gets more than he bargains for.
Airie was raised in an abandoned temple as a priestess’s daughter, having no idea of her true origins. In a time when any half-breed spawn of a demon is despised by mortal and immortal alike, not knowing the truth is the only thing keeping her safe.
Forced to flee her home in the wake of disaster and discovery of who she is, Airie must place her trust in a man who believes she should never have been born. And when a demon uprising threatens lives he has sworn to protect, Hunter has to make a choice: abandon Airie to an uncertain fate, or overcome his own personal demons and love her for who she truly is.

If you judge the book on the cover... you'd be wrong. It isn't a fluffy story with little back story. It's entirely opposite actually. As the start of a series, this is very good and shows great promise for things to come.
I did face a few problems with the Demon Slayer having the name Hunter as I did refer to him then as Demon Hunter and actually that's what I ended up naming this book in my head. I know that sounds weird but it's what happened :-/
The book really pulls you into the story gradually so you're unable to put it down. I enjoy books that give you bits of the story throughout and you're able to build with the characters. I found Airie very likeable and whilst it took me some time to get round to working Hunter out I thought he was a good hero. But not the best.
I think the cover is slightly inappropriate for this book. It gives you the wrong impression about what you're going to read. I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book :-)
