Book Review – Crimson Fang by L L McNeil

crimson fangDemon-slayer Seila is a soulless Phantom, tasked with endlessly hunting the creatures in a quest to reclaim her humanity.

Able to absorb the powers of those she fells, Seila’s strength grows after every hunt—but there’s more to demon hunting than raw power, especially with her quest to reclaim her soul.

Her friendship with half-Fire Elemental Damon has grown from strength to strength, and she’s even on speaking terms with the frosty Lady Tress Vitali.

But despite having the might of the supernatural organisation, the Kouzlo, as allies, Elite Demon Gorath is shaping up to be her greatest adversary ever.

The tables turn against Seila when Gorath shatters a Master Runesmith’s seal and unleashes the greatest demon threat the Kouzlo has ever faced—the Desolation.

And not even her mysterious Sieken Blade is powerful enough to destroy it.

With demons, dragons, and kick-ass characters, this is a new demon hunter series that you can really sink your teeth into!

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I feel Crimson Fang really delivers on the promise of the first two novellas in this amazing urban fantasy series. Seila (mostly!) learns to think about the bigger picture but also lucks into some things. We finally learn a little more about phantoms and the demon world too, and the way that fleshed our the universe was fantastic. Plus we get to see a little of why Tress is like she is!

As much as I like the development through the book, in some ways the ending is what made it for me. We get some standard impulsive loner Seila moments but she still demonstrates just how far she’s come!

I can’t wait for the final installment, though there’s so much to tie up, I have no idea how it will all end!
