Shadow Hunter by Kait Ballenger….Tour Stop & Review


Shadow Hunter (Execution Underground 0.5)
by Kait Ballenger
Release date: August 4, 2014



See where it all began in this exciting prequel to The Execution Underground, Kait Ballenger’s sexy paranormal series about the men who hunt evil and the women who love them.

Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s first assignment with the Execution Underground is Rochester, New York. But he isn’t the only hunter in town gunning for vamp blood. Tiffany Solow is ruthless when it comes to slaying the monsters that destroyed her family—and she works solo. But when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf, the line between good and evil blurs as they must decide between their lifelong beliefs…and their newfound desires.

My review:

Shadow Hunter by Kait Ballenger takes us back to the very beginning of
Damon’s story and his role in The Execution Underground. I was dying
to hear more about Damon and learn his backstory. Well, Shadow Hunter
gave all of it and it was amazing. Emotional, tense, tender….just

Damon Brock is settled in Rochester, NY, and is ready to get down to
business and go after one of the biggest vampires in the city. Never
in a million years did he expect to run into a rogue vampire hunter
after the same mission he was….and it was a woman. Tiffany Solow.
Women weren’t allowed to be a part of The EU and even if Tiffany was
one hell of a hunter, she was still crossing all sorts of lines she
shouldn’t be crossing.

Now, after getting her out of a sticky situation, and realizing the
vampires they are hunting have a few new traits that are making them
an even bigger force to be reckoned with, he starts to have a nagging
suspicion that he knows Tiffany. He fears the reason he may know her
is because she’s the girl he had been paired with as pen-pals when he
started training with The EU. The problems are numerous if that was
the case. One, because he had fallen in love with that girl through
her letters, and two, because she was the sister of his best friend.
A best friend whose death he was responsible for.

Now, with mounting attractions, big vampire trouble, and trying to
keep and entire city safe, tensions are running high between Damon and
Tiffany. Are they doomed before they even had a start?

Oh man, this was a great story. I was so intrigued by Damon when I
read Immortal Hunter and was dying to know what had happened in his
past to cause him the pain that was lying just under the surface.
Well, we got a lot of answers in Shadow Hunter and it was fantastic.
I’m going to try not to give any spoilers away but I will say that the
connection Tiffany and Damon shared from their letter writing days was
beautiful and really helped fuel their physical attraction when they
come face to face. Tiffany is one hell of a tough cookie and I really
enjoyed her resolve and tenacity. Damon is amazing as well. A
skilled fighter with a heart is a combo that’s hard to beat. And
throw in the whole mystery of what was going on with this new breed of
vampires and this story was non-stop action from the very first

This is absolutely a series I will continue to look forward to and
thank you, Kait, for giving us Damon’s start! I loved it!
