OK, You Have Issues, But Do Your Job!
Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2017
Having been dragooned into the Demon Hunter brotherhood in book 1,
very much against both her and th Demon Hunters' wishes, Nava is on
her first official mission, to the Czech Republic. A popular Hollywood
actor/Media personality is theorized by the Brotherhood to be a
demon because of the unlikely havoc and body toll in his entourage.
The hunters must a) find out if it is true, and b) kill him if it
is. In the meantime, Nava's tenuous almost-relationship with the
most famous hunter is jeopardized by the appearance of said hunter's
semi-ex who seems to want to rekindle things. To make matters
worse, she's actually a nice person.
I did not enjoy this book as much as the first. We had entirely too much
of Nava obsessing on her relationship issues to the point that I never bought
her as an effective decoy for the suspect. She was supposed to be uber
slinky and seductive, but she was such a mess in her head that I never could
visualize her that way. I also had a major plot point problem with the
fact that as an aside to the main story we learn that a dragon demon has
apparently been killing *lots* of people in Prague. Given that the
movie star, if he is a demon at all, seems to work by playing up people's
weaknesses, not by overriding their free will and that his body count,
if it is his, is just in the dozens, it seems like the hunters should drop
everything and go after the dragon demon, but that doesn't seem to occur to
