Marked For Death
Arbiters of Shadow Book 1
by Becca Blake
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Demon hunter Riley Collins has discovered a dark secret... and she'll have to give up everything to bring it to light.

Riley Collins swore an oath to the Arbiters of Shadow to carry on her family’s legacy of hunting demons. After a hellhound attack in Omaha ends in disaster, the Arbiters assign her a new partner: Jacob Thorne, the arrogant son of one of the highest ranking members of the Council.

Their first assignment together leads them to a demonic ritual that gives Riley and Jacob more questions than the Arbiters are willing to answer. By defying Marcus Thorne and the rest of the Council in her search for the truth, Riley uncovers a conspiracy that runs deep within the demon hunting organization.

Caught between her desire to do the right thing and her duty to the Arbiters, Riley has to make an impossible choice. Will she resign herself to a dark truth within the organization she’s pledged her life to, or will she become an Oathbreaker and spend the rest of her life running from death?

Fans of Supernatural, Jim Butcher, and Ilona Andrews will love the dark twists and turns of MARKED FOR DEATH, book one of the ARBITERS OF SHADOW urban fantasy series by USA Today bestselling author Becca Blake.

My Review:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Heart-Wrenching, Supernatural, Suspense, Urban Fantasy--

Riley has spent her whole life battling the demons that most humans do not even know exist. But when her partner doesn't make it home on their last mission, Riley is left with the aftermath that she is not sure how to overcome. When the next group of recruits attempt to pass thier certifications, Riley can't stand by and watch a newbie die as well, causing her to get a new partner agianst her will. Can Riley and her partner learn to work together in time to stop the devious plans already in motion?

I enjoyed how fast paced this story was, keeping the plot moving forward with tons of action and surprises. Marked For Death is a wholely unique urban fantasy series start that I kept being surprised by, be it the world building or the character developments. Also keep in mind that the ending is not the end so do not expect any real answers since the battle is just getting started- and it appears to be a doozy. Riley has a war on her hands and this book drew the line at where everyone stands- but I will admit that I am hopeful that a certain betrayer is not as guilty as he or she may appear (which was surprisng and heartbreaking in this book). If you are interested in romance, this is probably not the right place for you. But if you want action, battles, magic, hard choices and heartbreak then I have found your next read!

Becca Blake writes dark and deadly fantasy stories. If you ask her about her hobbies, she’ll tell you she likes to spend her time seeking vengeance against her enemies, but in reality she spends most of her free time curled up on the couch watching Netflix with her cat. She currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her husband and their two kids.
