#Review of Defiance (The Demon Hunters, Book #4) by A.S. Fenichel @asfenichel ~ @pumpupyourbook ~ #Paranormal #Historical #Romance

The Demon Hunters are about to face their biggest test, and they’ll need a lady to make the grade… Lady Serena Thurston had big plans—attend the best balls, meet a fine gentleman, get married, have a child or two and live happily ever after. But plans change. Serena knows firsthand what demons can do, and nothing will stand in the way of her goal to become a Demon Hunter—not even her absentee fiancé.

Tad Douglass is furious his fiancée has enrolled in the Demon Hunters’ school. Admittedly, he should have been more attentive after her capture by demons, but important Hunter business demanded his presence. Now, he’s forced to watch her transformation from an innocent young woman to a formidable Hunter. He’ll use every resource at his disposal to change her mind and return her to the simple life of a debutante.

When people go missing in London, Serena and Tad must investigate—together. The mistrust and love simmering between them during their perilous mission is brought to a boil at the gateway to Hell. With the lines between good and evil blurred, and death lurking at every turn, it will take a leap of faith to embrace this new partnership—as heroes and as lovers.

My Review:

As with the other books in the series, there are multiple storylines threaded through the pages. The main characters of Defiance are Serena Thurston, who is Gabriel's sister, and her fiancé, Tad Douglass. After Serena's abduction and rescue, she knows her life's meaning includes the training to become a demon hunter. She never wants to be the victim again and she wants to be able to protect and defend others. Tad, also a demon hunter, had made himself scarce since her abduction, taking care of other demon hunter duties. He realizes his mistake when he finds out Serena is training to become a demon hunter herself. As upset as Tad is with Serena's new life plan, when they find themselves working together in London, there are more important things at stake - like their simmering attraction, need for one another, and the urgency to stop the Master at all costs.

I was swept away by the story told in Defiance. The characters were well-crafted, multidimensional, and written with feeling. The world building was spectacular and I felt like I was in the story with Serena and Tad. Defiance is a fresh take on paranormal historical romance and I enjoyed every second. 

The entire series captivated me and I was engaged throughout. 

My Rating:
