I'm Krystin Blackwood, and I've only ever been good at one thing: killing demons of Darkness. But at 24, I'm about to face my toughest challenge yet: shifting from working alone to joining a team of three other Hunters. Newbie Hunters. They don't know their magik, they barely know their place in the world, and when they find out the secrets I've been carrying, they'll definitely decide it's safer if they don't know me. But unfortunately for them - and me - Darkness has other plans. Lady Azar, Darkness's heir, stole my new team leader's kid two years ago. Now, she and her lackeys are rallying to exchange Ben's kid for me because of the power I wield. I'm one half of a prophecy to save an ancient city the Powers of Good lost centuries ago. And if I fail or die before that happens, the destruction of that city will be felt across all planes of existence. If we can't find Ben's son before All Hallows' Eve and somehow save him without putting my life at risk, that existential explosion will absolutely happen. But it'll be nothing compared to the destruction wrought if Lady Azar changes Ben's son into a demon...and her minion Because the only thing more dangerous than me with a blade is a father's wrath.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jessica Gunn. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Really great story of learning to trust each other and work together. A wonderful bunch of characters with mysterious backgrounds. I love the way the author changed the point of view between Krystin and Ben. I wish we could get into the head of the Hunters Circle leader and Krystin's mom. I was very interested in this story after reading the synopsis. I love when there is a strong female main character who can hold her own. This one can kick butt. I think is would be good for high school grade or older. The message of learning to work together and trust each other is very well intertwined in a plot full of action and adventure. The characters are relatable and you find yourself on the edge of your seat routing for the good guys? The author has created a dark world right under the noses of the people living in Boston. I love that the idea that everyone is not what they seem and not a straight forward good vs evil. I found it hard to stop listening to this story and the narrator just added to my temptation to stay up all night and listen straight through. The narrator used different voices for each character and did a great job of conveying the emotion and fire of this story. I love that it is a series as I am just not finished learning more about these characters.
