The Demon Hunter (The Hunter #2) 

Ellie has always been different, from playing with fairies as a child to fighting demons as an adult. She grew up wondering why no one else seemed to notice the oddities of the world that she came into contact with on a daily basis. When she is the only witness of a demon attack and the police suspect her, Ellie skips the country heading to England where she plans to keep a low profile. Everything is going fine, until Devon appears, stumbling around her garden like a drunken fool, and completely naked no less.

Six months ago Devon sacrificed himself to bind the soul of a demon and save the world from certain destruction. Thanks to a spell gone awry, Devon is back. But Devon hasn’t come alone. The very demon he tried to destroy has returned and is wreaking havoc on earth. When Devon meets Ellie, he instantly recognizes another supernatural being. Ellie may just be the only person who is strong enough to destroy the demon, if the demon doesn’t destroy her first.
Fantastic! I really enjoyed this book. I was worried at first because this is the second book in the series and I have not read the first one. I am a real stickler about reading things in order, so it was very hard to go against the grain but I am so glad I did. The author wastes no time jumping right into the action.

Devon has been brought back from the dead by Ashley and Christian after sacrificing himself to bind his soul to a demon and trap him. Obviously the sacrifice happens at the end of first book where Ashley and Christian are main characters , so at first I was worried I was going to have trouble following the story. But Devon comes back missing his memory and has no idea why he is here on earth again. Since you are learning things as Devon is, it was actually quite easy to follow. Ellie is working as a tour guide at a mansion giving haunted tours when Devon appears naked and disoriented and the adventure begins. He kidnaps her and her life is never the same. Soon she learns Devon is not human, a whole world of supernatural beings exist and she may hold the key to saving them all from a powerful demon, if only she knew exactly what she was herself and how to control it.

There was a lot of action in this book and I loved learning more as Devon regained his memory and Ellie tried to find out exactly what she was. It was an interesting way for a story to unfold. It was not your typical "I must hide the truth, because he/she won't understand or because I know best" plot. Both characters were on a journey to find themselves and I really enjoyed the ride. Of course, that does not mean Devon was not your typical Alpha male. He definitely had his neanderthal moments but that is why I loved him so. As a warrior Angel, you can expect no less. Ellie was great. She stood her ground, got in Devon's face when needed despite being half his size, was compassionate and even had a jealous streak. She was a true woman.

I really hope there will be more in this series and now I need to go track down the first book, The Ghost Hunter.
