Less Hopelessly Devoted, more Worse Things I Could Do.

Nava is hot on the heels of a demonic serial killer and finally working with her brother. The assignment should be a dream come true, not a nightmarish power struggle made worse by her twin's refusal to believe there's corruption within the Brotherhood. Nava is determined to find proof of their dirty dealings, even as she risks irrefutably breaking her sibling bond.

Speaking of clocking annoying males upside the head... Nava is also totally over smoking hot rock star and fellow hunter Rohan Mitra. There is a veritable buffet of boy options out there, and this girl is now all-you-can-eat. So when her demon hunt brings her first love, Cole, back into her life, her revenge fantasies for closure-on all fronts-are a go. Except neither her old wounds nor her new ones are as healed as she believes.

Still, she's got work to do:
Brotherhood: unmask.
Demons: slaughter.
Guy problems: terminate with extreme prejudice

And our kicking butt heroine just keeps on giving – great stories and ways to catch those sneaky demons! And keep those hot boys on their toes – not to mention deal with that misogynistic Brotherhood.

After a bumpy start as the only female demon hunter in the top secret Brotherhood of David, Nava Katz heads to Prague for her first undercover mission: unmasking a demon movie star. No downside-until she finds herself up against Rohan's past, the Brotherhood's antiquated thinking, and her own identity issues.

Next in the Nava Katz series and we have some new issues with the female demon hunter. Was she really meant to be chosen? Why not her brother?

This story is a good follow-up to the excellent first book in the series. I like the character of Nava and find her issues quite believable.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare-a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari's induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the-until now-all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan's exactly what Nava's always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That's as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.
Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

The mysterious world of the Orthodox Jewish religion is revealed – in all its (un?)necessary traditions. We also find out about some of the (supposed) Kabbalah  ideas…

According to Jewish belief, the demons were created on the sixth day in the afternoon. The demons are messengers from hell, their appearance is just like any normal person, but their legs are chicken feet, there are demons whose legs are legs of a goat. The role of demons in our world is to frighten the person, try to damage him, particularly mental damage. (http://www.p-kabbalah.com)

From the traditions (as described in the novel) we learn that King David (Bible’s King of Israel) organised a group of men to fight the Demons that he had encountered, and who lived alongside the human world, mostly ‘glamoured’ so that they could be detected. The Demon Hunters were given the name Rasha, and since the time of King David all Rashas are descended from the original cohort – through the female line of course, but always male. Until along comes a set of twins, male and female, where the male twin is identified by a Rabbi as being a Rasha in training and thus is set to learn how to fight and destroy the various Demons etc.

At the age of 20 all Initiates have their final ceremony and become fighters in the secret army (disguised as a Personal Protection company). Only a hiccup occurs. The female twin get the magic! Oops you might say as never before had there been a female Rasha (but then never had any females been tested so…).

The story of how our female Rasha learns her ‘trade’ and sasses all the Rabbis and other Demon Hunters makes for a fun and enjoyable romp. With a fair amount of eroticism as she is quite a lusty girl! Not to mention that she likes food and alcohol but her ‘work’ ensures that she stays fit and trim!
