“I’m not sure what Ms. Ballenger’s plans are but I hope to see more of this series.”
~ Under the Covers

Someone is bringing the dead back to life and they are up to no good. The elite group, Execution Underground are on top of it assigning Shane Grey to lead the investigation. Because of his knowledge as an Occult Specialist, Witch Hunting, Magic and Necromancy, he is perfect for the job. But he’ll need the help of his student to know what’s going on in the streets of the magic world.
Vera is one of Shane’s student who has plenty of knowledge when it comes to magic. Her DNA says it all but this is her dark past she’d rather not visit. Unfortunately, her fond for the high magic gives her keeps her in the loop and deeper in her addiction. When her professor asks her for help, she will be given a chance to prove her worth and not by her family ties or associations but who she truly is. Falling in love with the nerdy hunter is just a bonus.

Shane and Vera’s story was sweet. Though their relationship was a professor-student relationship, it didn’t have a New Adult feel to it. They were both consenting adults who are participating in their own volition and new what they wanted. Vera did have her insecurities but overall a strong heroine. Shane, of course was a mixture of confidence and arrogance but has an aura of being inexperienced with love. He was very sweet.

I enjoyed the multiple Point-Of-Views in this story. Getting in the head of all the characters was exciting especially the villain’s POV. There were a several laugh-out-loud and endearing moments as well as nail biting zombie scenes that surprisingly, I enjoyed. Note that zombies are not at all my typical read; they freak me out. I think Ms. ballenger did a great job not making it the focus but more so on the magic.

I’m not sure what Ms. Ballenger’s plans are but I hope to see more of this series.

About Kait Ballenger

Kait Ballenger is a full-time paranormal romance author, wife, professional bellydancer, and graduate student living in Central Florida. SHADOW HUNTER, the debut prequel of her sexy paranormal romance series, the Execution Underground, about an international network of supernatural hunters who fight to protect humanity alongside the powerful women they seduce, releases in an anthology titled AFTER DARK along with NYT Bestselling author Gena Showalter's novella THE DARKEST ANGEL in July 2013. TWILIGHT HUNTER, book one of the EU series, debuts Sept 2013.

With a B.A in English from Stetson University, Kait is currently a student in Spalding University’s M.F.A in Writing for Children and Young Adults program, where she studies dual-genre in screenwriting. She writes dark paranormal romance with drool-worthy heroes and kickass heroines as Kait Ballenger, and sassy YA urban fantasy under her maiden name, Kaitlyn Schulz.

When Kait’s not preoccupied with paranormal creepy-crawlies, she can be found slaving over endless amounts of schoolwork or with her nose buried in a book. She lives in Florida with her husband, and doggie-daughter, Sookie (yes, like the heroine in Charlainne Harris’ books), and two mischievous kittens, Elliot and Olivia (yes, like the Law and Order characters), near the love and care of her supportive family. Kait believes anything is possible with hard work and dedication. One day, she will be a bestseller and have people name their pets after her characters too.
