Book Review: Demon Hunter "Saga"

                                                    Today’s review is on Demon Hunter “Saga” by Cynthia Vespia
Demon Hunter “SAGA” is the culmination of three books following the life and adventures of Costa Calabrese Coleridge.  Thrust into a life of poverty and servitude after the death of his mother, young Costa longs for a life of freedom and adventure with his best friend Tuck Goodall.  Never did he think that his dreams would actually come true, but as the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for.”

During one of Costa and Tuck’s outings into the woods surrounding their village, they happen upon a stranger’s body, along with another man shrouded in black.  When the man in black kills the other, both Costa and Tuck flee, thinking the man in black to be a threat to their lives as well.  They didn’t know that he was The Demon Hunter, and Costa’s father.

Being the son of The Demon Hunter, Costa’s fate was to follow in his father’s shoes.  He too would become a Demon Hunter as well.  But while Cain Coleridge remained alone, Costa would have friends beside him.

The first book, DEMON HUNTER: THE CHOSEN ONE, is a bit slow in the beginning but does pick up a bit after the first four chapters, then it keeps you turning page after page to see what happens next. 

The second book; which is my favorite, SEEK & DESTROY, flows much better than the first, and kept me glued to my seat until I finished it.  It was the third book, HEROES CALL, that left me feeling a bit ripped off.  The adventure was a bit weak and the ending was a complete let down.

All in all, Demon Hunter “Saga” is a decent book.  After all, who doesn’t like a book chock full of Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, Shape Shifters, Dragon’s, and an amazing love story.
