Review: Twilight Hunter (Execution Underground, #1) by Kait Ballenger

Twilight Hunter
Parnormal Romance - Urban Fantasy - Supernatural

Hunters of the supernatural, the Execution Underground are an elite group tasked with protecting humanity...but what happens when danger collides with desire?

Jace McCannon has one loyalty: the Execution Underground. Despite his mixed blood, his hatred for the werewolves he hunts is legendary. But in his search for a sadistic killer, Jace finds himself face to face with a stunningly seductive packmaster…and longing for a night with his mortal enemy.

Nothing can stop Frankie Amato from defending her kind—or catching the rogue responsible for killing women in her territory. For that, this alpha female needs Jace’s skills more than she wants to admit. But as their investigation exposes evil truths, need burns into a passion that dare not be fulfilled. For to do so will have deadly consequences for them both.

~ 4.5 Twilight Hunter Stars ~ 

Twilight Hunter is book one in Kait Ballenger’s "Execution Underground" series. We have action, surprises, murder mystery and steaming up the bedroom romance. The plot is well done, fast passed, non-stop on the go action/adventure that I found myself drawn in and could not put this one down. 

I liked Frankie she does not let anyone push her around. She is pack leader which is rear for a women to be in that high a position. As for Jace he has some major issues and I got a little upset that he does not see the grey area’s, but that is what Frankie is around for. She helps him accept his past, his family and accept who and what he is. I was not expecting the twist and turns these two go through just to find happiness together. As for the romance it was a little fast for my liking, but Kait explains this, so it’s not hard to understand why they hook up so fast and jump into bed quickly. I did get a little frustrated with all the miscommunication between Frankie and Jace, but was happy to see them work it out. 

I will mention that Damon is head of the Execution Underground in Rochester where they are stationed. If you have read After Dark then you learn about the team and understand Damon's anger, but his team has no idea what has happened to him and why he is so angry at the world. This puts the team in a predicament and makes finding the killer that much harder. I was surprised to find out why the killer was targeting Jace. I was not expecting what we learn at the end. 

Kait Ballenger knows how to pull an audience in and keep us entertained. I’ve had Twilight Hunter since the day it came out and am beating myself up for not reading it sooner. I really enjoyed it and look forward to getting to know the other members of the Execution Underground. I will say the ending in Twilight Hunter left me with some un-answered questions, so I hoping that Immortal Hunter book 2 will answer them.

Immortal Hunter (Execution Undergournd #2) 
by Kait Ballenger 
Hunters of the supernatural, the Execution Underground are an elite group tasked with protecting humanity...but at what price?

As an exorcist, David Aronowitz grew up the target of demonic
assassins. Now he’s a member of the Execution Underground
and hellspawn everywhere fear his name. But when a demon
slips into the seductive body of the only woman he’s ever loved,

David must confront the heartbreak of their past to save her.
The piece of her heart AllsĂșn O’Hare gave to David so long ago
left her trapped between two worlds: the Fae and the human.
And when David comes to her rescue, fate reunites her with her
greatest temptation—and her biggest mistake.

Now, as they’re swept together into a wicked game with the
demon who controls her, David must decide if saving AllsĂșn’s
life is worth sacrificing his own—and the future of humanity itself. (Goodreads)


  1. Oh yeah. I definitely need to pick these up soon. Sounds excellent!

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!

 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
