preparation for the latest book Labyrinth of Stars Unfortunately I read the prequel story in an anthology many years ago and no longer own that particular book Hunter Kiss is essential reading for anyone who wants to read the series I remember when I picked up the first book The Iron Hunt and started reading, I had to put it back down and go and check online that I hadn t picked up a later book in the series by accident A lot happens in this novella that is continued in The Iron Hunt.Hunter Kiss introduces us to Maxine Kiss, a young woman who has some unusual abilities and gifts The most unique part of her is her tattoos which cover every inch of her skin These tattoos are actually five little demons who can peel off her body at night and become separate creatures with their own personalities During the day when they cover Maxine s body they make her impervious to harm like having bullet proof skin They are her protectors and are long living if not immortal They have protected each generation of women in Maxine s family, until that woman has a daughter and then that protection transfers over to the child The reason Maxine needs this protection is that she can see what she calls zombies demons who have invaded a human host and slowly take them over, using that body to cause the pain and suffering of others which they feed from Maxine is a hunter and can kill these zombies In Hunter Kiss, Maxine meets Grant Cooperon, a former priest, flute player and owner of a homeless shelter He is being hunted by these demons and Maxine must find out why.I really enjoyed the world that Liu has created here I have read other UF series set in Seattle and Liu manages to make her world atmospheric, dark and different I also love that Maxine s romantic interest isn t an alpha male Grant is gentler, honest about his feelings and seems like a nice person He also has a physical injury and must walk with a cane At the same time he is not a pushover and is able to be an equal partner to Maxine.I liked the mythology around the demons, Blood Mama and the prison veils The only factor that stopped this story getting the full five stars is that I felt Maxine fell for Grant too quickly and easily This is a person who had been on her own ever since her mother died and on the move her entire life but within hours of meeting Grant view spoiler she sleeps with him despite knowing that the chances are that she will fall pregnant despite any precautions she takes and if she has a baby her demons tattoos will abandon her for the child and leave her defenceless

personas demonios con su m sica Un talento que lo vuelve alguien peligroso para los demonios, sobretodo para su reina.Un incidente cruza sus caminos y terminan huyendo juntos La atracci n entre ellos es innegable Sin embargo, tanto Maxime como Grant tendr n que decidir si vale la pena el riesgo de estar juntos o no.Algo que destacar el nombre de la protagonista es bastante original, hay que saber llevar ese nombre Por otro lado, el apellido de Grant me resulta poco com n y hasta me cuesta recordarlo jajajaj pero eso ya es cosa m a XDMe gust mucho La forma en que est abordado el tema de los demonios me pareci novedosa Ya ver que tal est el primer libro de la saga Hunter Kiss by Marjorie M Liu was a pretty interesting story about a demon hunter who meets a man that changes everything she has ever known It is full of action, romance, in the non traditional sense, and intrigue from beginning to end I liked the character of Maxine Kiss and the tragedy of her life and those before her I also liked the little demons that live on her body as tattoos during the day and come alive at night The love interest, Grant, was pretty interesting as well I think t Hunter Kiss by Marjorie M Liu

love interest, Grant, was pretty interesting as well I think the only thing I didn t like about this story was the vagueness about it and how Maxine and Grant met and got together is a little strange for me as well I had previously read a short story that is based in the Hunter Kiss series in the anthology Inked, and I liked it along with world Ms Liu has created I ll definitely be reading the other books in this series starting with The Iron Hunt This really should be read before beginning her series, as it clarifies and sets up a lot Overall, it s a very good novella action packed and romantic. ( Free Kindle ) ♶ Hunter Kiss ♭ In this eSpecial, New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M Liu provides a companion novella to The Iron Hunt and Darkness Calls, the first two books in her gripping new urban fantasy series Meet Maxine Kiss, the Earth s last protector This novella, a prequel to The Iron Hunt, was originally published as part of the Wild Thing anthology I loved the prose in this It was jumpy and a little all over the place Quite sharp and to the point And not really the kind of prose I would have expected from a novella in a paranormal romance collection It wasn t really that heavy on the romance either, that was just kind of slotted in Which I appreciated immensely After all, what I like about this series the novella that I have already read anyway is the darkness of it

I would have expected from a novella in a paranormal romance collection It wasn t really that heavy on the romance either, that was just kind of slotted in Which I appreciated immensely After all, what I like about this series the novella that I have already read anyway is the darkness of it and the intensity.This is the start of the Hunter Kiss, a little romantic introduction that I m assuming sets you up for the rest of the series And it is one that worked really very well for me I found it thoroughly enjoyable, if anything, a little too enjoyable in that it makes me want to not finish any of the other books on my currently reading pile and just jump straight into The Iron Hunt It is taking a lot of self control to not do this And to you know continue doing the work that I m actually supposed to be doing that I get paid to do.This isn t the fast paced novella that I was expecting Although there are demons and external impacts on Grant and Maxine, most of the story is about them getting to know each other Specifically, it is about Maxine being introduced to her reader in all of her weird and abnormal glory And what an introduction it is now to hide The Iron Hunt somewhere safe so I can be a littleproductive in my life I love the Hunter Kiss series This time I m going to start in chronological order Love coming unseen by a demon huntress Maxine Kiss is the latest in a long line of demon huntresses Desendened from a matriarchal line She knows of no other hunter still existing Maxine is the last as far as she knows of all the the lines created Then she meets Grant Cooperon He is unlike anything she has ever met He s not like her Grant is a Piper, like the Pied Piper of Hamelin Except Grant is a demon I love the Hunter Kiss series This time I m going to start in

Wow, this story, though short was epic Destined love, good and evil with lines somestimes blurred and lots of action One of those series they really should turn into a movie, imo Loved it Maxine

to sure about this relationship Will see how the books work this one out.Maxine also has tattoos that come to life when the sun sets and these tattoos are no ordinary tattoos The author explains the myriad species of spirits and demons who have invade this world Humans who are possessed and that Maxine can see them The story was interesting The writing style though made the book feelformal and old fashioned It s not in the past nor was it decades ago This style made the story moveslowly and hard for me to connect to the characters I plan to read Iron Hunt and see what happens next, though I m not in a big hurry to check it out.
