A New Discovery – S M Reine
I recently discovered the author S M Reine from my Bookbub email I receive every day. In case you don’t know what Bookbub is it’s a mailing list you can join that sends you recommendations on the types of books you like to read. Anyway I read the synopsis and it was free and thought why not? I clicked through to Amazon and bought the free book and it was some time later that I started reading it on my kindle.
The Descent Series
The first book was actually the first three books combined as one. Once I got into the collection I could not put it down. It was a bit hard going at first as the scenes kept switching to different time frames (the author does this quite a lot throughout this series). However once I got into the swing of things so to speak, I was lost in an urban paranormal fantasy world.
So What is the Descent Series all About?
In a nutshell two main characters; Elise Kavanagh and James Faulkner. Ok, elaborating a bit more than that…. Elise is a demon hunter known as a kopis and James is a witch known as an aspis. The first book takes you into their world where they are retired from the demon hunting business, but things come to light and after some reluctance Elise agrees with James to take on a job. This in turn leads to them working as demon hunters again.
There are 7 books in the descent series. With each book you are thrown into the past and the present and it can get a little confusing at first, but putting that aside these are really worth a read.
The more you read the Descent Series the more the plot thickens. Each book takes you through a fast paced journey of kick ass demon hunting. I don’t want to write any spoilers in here about the context of each book and what happens but I’ve been pretty gob smacked by some of the endings, only to move on to the next book and be wowed again. If you are looking for some fast paced action with a female kick ass hero then this is the collection for you.
I personally think S M Reine is under-selling herself and the reason I decided to write this review is she has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I believe S M Reine is widely under-publicized and she deserves credit for writing an epic adventure of these two characters. S M Reine (Sara) also writes a werewolf series which I shall be investigating too.
If you have read any of her books, what did you think?
