The Ninth Hunter by Anna Hub

The Ninth Hunter by Anna Hub release date January 12, 2016.

About The Ninth Hunter:

“These weren’t ghosts of the dead with unfinished business. They were something far more sinister.
Daniel Barrow is a ghost hunter bound to a life of misery; protecting the world from ghosts by killing their human hosts. He knows the rules: mark the targets, plot the crime scenes, and then murder those beyond saving. Daniel’s safe in his rituals—until he meets Faye Michaels.
Faye isn’t his average target and her ghosts threaten to destroy everything he has worked for. When his ritual goes wrong, Daniel must create an uneasy alliance with the woman he intended to kill. But the deeper they dig, the closer they get to a dangerous secret that will change their lives forever.
Daniel must make a choice: fulfil his duty, or turn his back on those he has come to trust. Can the truth lead him to salvation?”

 

My Five Star Review:

The Ninth Hunter is not your typical Ghost story but so much more.   I wasn’t sure what to expect when I won a free copy of this book.  It’s a completely different concept about ghosts, how they interact with humans, and the hunters who track the ghosts.  (To me this is a Supernatural/Paranormal/Horror New Adult story for readers 16+)

Twenty-three year old Daniel Barrow, who has been hunting ghosts for the past 6 years, is about to commit murder, again.  His target is twenty-three year old Faye Michaels who is being haunted by ghosts.  Things don’t go exactly as planned when Daniel finally gets face to face with Faye.  This story is action packed from the very beginning and took me on a ride I didn’t want to get off of.  There are twists and turns along the way, secrets and information that turns the course of events, and an ending I thought would truly never happen.   Anna Hub created very intense characters and likable at the same time.  It was enjoyable to watch Daniel and Faye’s characters evolve and change as the story progressed.

The Ninth Hunter is extremely well written and kept me engaged the entire way through.  I look forward to reading more of Anna’s books.

City Beautiful by CM Foss

About City Beautiful:

“Patrick Thompson is all city, all the time. A young doctor, once full of passion, now disillusioned by the practice, he sets off across the country, intent on a small breather before a fresh start.
Ivy Lang loves the country way. So much so that she’s created a place where others can experience her ideas of the fundamentals for both mind and body. The life is perfect for her, carefully cultivated by her own hands.
He’s waiting for something to inspire him.
She finds inspiration all around her.
But when a chance meeting turns their worlds upside down, can they come together to create something beautiful?”

My Five Star Review:

City Beautiful is a very touching love story and emotional journey between two characters (Ivy and Patrick) who couldn’t be more different, or are they?  (City Beautiful is a Romantic Comedy suitable for readers 18+)

I really enjoyed Ivy.  She is a free spirit kind of woman who focuses on all the positives in life.  She built herself an amazing life she truly enjoys and wants to share with others.  Patrick is a doctor and your typical “city” guy who ends up at Ivy’s farm and it changes his life.

Patrick: “She was the king of beautiful I’d expect to see back home.  City Beautiful. Except there was nothing city about her.”

Ivy: “Come with me.  I’m gonna make you the best meal you’ve ever had.  It’s gonna change your life.”

Their emotional journey drew me in and didn’t let me go until I got to the end of the book. Trust me, you will absolutely love this story so pick it up today.

This is the first book I’ve read by CM Foss but it will definitely not be the last.

downfall 99

Excerpt:

At Gaunt House ruins, the night started much the same as usual: some quiet chit-chat, a game of Monopoly, a beer and some snacks. But then it happened again. Not long after I arrived, Cain had a private consultation with Liz. They disappeared into the cooler room while I was moving my little dog around the game board. When they reappeared Cain said he was going out for pizza and more beer. I mustered my courage and asked to tag along but he said he’d be quick and I should stay in the game. He was gone for forty minutes … an hour … an hour and twenty … an hour and forty… Over and over I asked the other three where he could be but they just shrugged, elaborately nonchalant.

“Could he have got in an accident?” I asked.

“He’s fine, Frankie,” Jude assured me.

“It doesn’t take two hours to get pizza!”

“He’ll be back,” Owen said. “I’ll have Trafalgar Square, Liz.”

I doubted myself. They were all so casual. Maybe there really was no secret. The Monopoly game was long finished when Cain finally returned around eleven … with no pizza or drinks. He feigned forgetfulness when I demanded to know why, and I thought I saw the others hiding their smiles. What the heck? Was this some kind of initiation? Cain headed for the cooler room so I pursued. He fished in the cooler and cracked open a sugary drink, slamming it down in what must have been record time.

“Where did you go?” I asked.

He reached for a second soda. “Nowhere.”

“Tell me.”

He took a big gulp from the new can and went for the plastic crate where spare packets of chips and snacks were kept. There was just one small bag of nuts left, which he tore into and finished in one go. I stared. Cain made as if to head back to the main chamber.

“Hey,” I snapped.

Cain stopped and looked at me, a strange darkness coming into his eyes.

“Where …?”

I didn’t finish because at that moment he stepped in close to me, just inches away, looking intently down into my face. My first instinct was to back away but I fought it and held my ground, knees beginning to shake.

“Francesca,” he said in a voice so soft I didn’t know whether it was tender or menacing. “Stop asking questions.”

Then he was gone. I let out a breath and was obliged to spend a couple of minutes regaining my presence of mind before I went back out to join the group.

About Downfall:

“Frankie’s cousin wants her to do three things this year:
1. Lose her inhibitions
2. Do something spectacularly stupid
3. Fall madly in love
Travelling was Frankie’s life. As the daughter of a big-name evangelist, she’s been able to feed her hunger for new sights throughout most of her teenage years. Then a hushed-up scandal gets her thrown off the tour circuit and stuck at her uncle’s house in the town of Augur’s Well.
Forced to repeat her failed senior year, it looks like a dismal existence for Frankie—until she’s invited to the bizarre meeting place of four mismatched people … and falls hard for the fascinating, secretive Cain Aleister.
Furtive meetings in an underground chamber … Latin words carved into a stone wall … intense desire … and a secret so elusive she’ll do almost anything to bust it open. Until now, Frankie never believed in grand passions—but that’s not the only one of her beliefs about to implode right before her eyes.
Looks like Frankie’s going to score three for three.”
