Book Review: Demon Hunter by AJ Alexander (the 4th book in the Council of Twelve Series)
This may be my favorite installment of this series to date. Between this one and the two previous books I'm feeling like the series is maturing as a whole. The first book "Soul Taker" did a good job of introducing us to the author's vision of this world, while "Sundance" and "Demon Tracker" started fleshing that world and its characters out more and more. In "Bounty Hunter" we dive more deeply into this series and get a new perspective from one of the actual members of the Council of Twelve.
This time we start out seeing things from the perspective of Centriel who having seen how the world's of his fellow Archangels have changed, and wondering if he will ever find such happiness. Then he meets Simin a Demon Hunter and soon both their worlds' are turned upside down, and we are soon drawn deeper into the manipulations of Hell and it's many minions.
Finally, I want to say I loved the interactions with Simin and Zei, our heroine from the last book. I also enjoy how well the author integrates characters and dangers from the previous installments series, like the fact that Sundance is still trying to deal with problems from her time as a prisoner in Hell.
In short, this latest book like it really fit nicely into the world we've been introduced to, while at the same time expanding it at the same time.
A really great read. Can't wait for the next volume.
