Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Divinity is equally divided between Evie and Daniel’s points of view and each of them brings something different to the story. Evie is 135 years old, she is – first and foremost – a demon hunter, and she’s very inflexible and unwilling to change. Daniel is younger, newly trained and still fairly optimistic. His devilish grin is a powerful weapon, especially when aimed at Evie and her hardened heart.

Unlike Evie, Daniel doesn’t take himself too seriously. He is strong and reliable in a fight, but

I received this book from Patty from the OmniAngels Twitter Party.

I have come to love these parties, oh dear...

First off, I'd like to point that the girls from Omnific have a talent for mindfuck, why?, they have an incredible imagination!!

I loved this book, I think it is different and it kept me entertained, and as I've specified before, when it comes to paranormal books, this is a hard task to accomplish because I do too have a very active imagination!

I loved Evie, she is such a badass!! You kn

“Be swift, be strong”

Patricia Leever does it again in her second novel, Divinity, creating yet another strong heroine in 135-year-old demon hunter Evelyn Brighton.

Who knew Los Angeles has so many demons running around? I sure didn't. In this story, they are everywhere, living amongst the humans. Evelyn (who also goes by Evie, Ev, and E) works for the Lebriga Corporation. A fully-loaded, state-of-the-art mansion off of Mulholland serves as the Los Angeles branch of Lebriga. This is where Evelyn,

This book was given to me to read by Omnific Publishing. And let me say, thank you, thank you, thank you. This book wasn't even on my radar and I'm sure glad it popped up!

I really enjoyed this book. Evelyn is a headstrong, confident, plays-by-her-own-rules, bad-ass right up there with the likes of Miss Cat Crawford herself! I loved watching her walls crumble little by little.

The story telling was amazing, the chemistry between all the characters was fantastic and there were quite a few people

Do you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Meet Evie the Demon Hunter. This is a really cool "world", which is our world now but there's demons and we don't know it. But the Lebriga Corporation does, and that's why, for centuries, they've found and trained demon hunters and their handlers. The handlers are the ones who concoct potions, weapons, and all sorts of fun goodies for the hunters to go out and get the baddies.

One of my favorite parts of this world is the tattoos. Tats are not just tats; the

Evie is a demon hunter hell bent on ridding Los Angeles of the evil that roams the streets. She was born with a gift to see demons who parade as humans along with her team mates at the Lebriga Corporation. Evie is content going on missions and killing demons. That is until Daniel and his handler Chris are sent to join the Los Angeles team. Daniel is a new recruit in dire need of training and the responsibility falls to Evie. She is used to flying solo now she must put her life in the hands of th ...more

This is a fresh, cleanly written and edgy little paranormal novel about an LA bad ass protagonist who spends her time battling demons. It's also a love story--and one born of a sort of trainer/trainee dynamic, which is my favorite! I won't give away the story, but I WILL say that I highly recommend Divinity for its easy and sharp writing and a paranormal world that's far more accessible than most. Loved this book.
Nicky Peacock
There are a lot of Urban Fantasies around right now, and the demon/angel theme is proving very popular. Divinity falls into this category, yet does prove to be one of the best in the bunch. There’s a kick-ass heroine, a believable romance (with an interesting dynamic of the lady being the boss) and carefully thought out world that’s introduced with precision and ease.

The hardest thing to do with Urban Fantasy is the world building. Choosing the right bricks and when and where to place them is cr

Really enjoyed it!! Another great story that has tough, independent women! I loved there was a such a realistic love story.. all while there are demons that need to be taken down by this power couple! ;) Can't wait for part 2!!!

If you are tired of angel/demon PNR books, this might be the one that you will enjoy. It has that aspect, but doesn't really deal with the angel aspect too much. In fact, the main characters are human; they are magical, but human. They do deal with demons. Lots of them. But they don't take over the story.

It's also more of a UF ride than a PNR one. However, those that don't want a read without romance should not despair. There is romance. It's between Evelyn a broken, but tough woman and Daniel t

OMG I have to say that I love love love demon hunter stories. I just love how the underworld comes out and saves the unsuspecting humans. Patricia has done an excellent job of crafting and creating this world where the demon hunters live day to day to protect the humans.

Evelyn is a serious demon hunter that kicks ass first and asks questions later. She has a whole boat load of weapons and she knows how to use them. But her one weapon only she possesses is her divinity blade. When she hits the cr

"All of it was wonderful and maddening at the same time. The two of us were like oil and water, and we were either going to kill each oner or screw each other stupid. If I had anything to say about it, it would be the latter." -Daniel

Fun, fast-paced, action-packed, and romantic, Divinity is a fantastic paranormal read.

Evelyn is a century old demon hunter, with a fear of getting close to a man. She's a kick-ass heroine, a focused killer with

I freakin' loved this book! Holy cow, it was so good. Ok I will stop gushing now, and try and write a normal review. I just had to get that squee out. Evie is a demon hunter. The tatoos they get and the magic they carry within them kind of reminded me of shadowhunters in the city of bones series, because they were a little like the runes that they wore. The overall concept is kind of similar. Hunters are people that can see demons lurking around in the real world. They get recruited and train wi ...more

3.5 out of 5 Stars

Divinity takes place in modern-day Los Angeles, where the demons come out to play even in broad daylight! No one is safe! Demon hunter, Evelyn Brighton, works hard to focus on her responsibility; she’s a strongly independent woman, who’s been working for Lebriga Corporation for a long time and knows what it takes to get the job done. Daniel is a fresh, newbie who from Nevada and comes to Lebriga for a chance to learn. When he meets his new trainer, Eve, he likes what he sees.

Chick DJ reviews Divinity by Patricia Leever, as well as the novel’s short prequel, Clarity. This was another book that was won in the Omnific Publishing Supernatural Prize Pack!

Divinity starts right in the middle of the action. Usually, I’m not the sort of person who likes to jump right into a story like that without some background information first. What I didn’t realize at the time is that there’s a good reason for this. Brilliantly done!

The demon hunters and handlers live in a mansion/compound in Los Angeles, training and waiting for their next assignment to protect human kind from the demons that surround them. Enter Daniel the demon hunter. Evelyn finds herself annoyed with his presence and even more annoyed with the feelings that begin appear anytime he is near, but she is ordered with the task of tra ...more

Those wanting a fast-paced exhilarating read will find that and more in this compelling paranormal story with immensely likable characters and room for even more entertaining stories in the future. Throughout the centuries the angel Gabriel has created his own elite army of demon hunters to battle against a hodgepodge of nightmare-inducing creatures with plans to wipe out humanity. These hunters are imbued with quick-healing abilities, tattoos that enhance their incantations, and long-life which ...more

Well lets begin with ... that I'm a huge fan of this series now and definitely can't wait for the next one. I have no idea why I do this to myself. I love and hate series, there's always waiting involved and it's even worse, when it'll be a while until the next book comes outs.

So, there's Evelyn, bad-ass old chick (haha), who fights demons. She's 135, but sure doesn't look like it, I'd like to know her secrets! And she's a sassy one, which is my ultimate favor, you pretty much don't want to mess

First Thought when Finished: Divinity by Patricia Leever was an interesting twist on the standard Angel Urban Fantasy read. The last quarter of the story will have you counting down to the next installment.

What I Thought of the Story: Divinity is the first book in a new series (I think) by Patricia Leever. The story takes place in LA and follows a group of Hunters that keep us safe from Demons. These Demons are

2.5 stars

Given that I don't especially care for this genre (urban fantasy), I liked this book more than I thought I would. Friends keep trying to get me to like UF (and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Laurell K. Hamilton), probably because there are strong women leads and occasional vampires. This one had no vamps. Lots of just about everything else, though, of the demonic sort.

I wouldn't call the characters or story unique, but the book was kinda interesting. I think the characters could have been

I always like the books that have the main character that kicks butt and takes no crap. Evelyn is just like that. All she wants is to live life and take down any Demon or Troll that is around. She is the best at what she does and she has been doing this for a long time.
Then when two new people come to the house, she gets stuck training with one of them. But if I was her, I would have no problem wrestling around with some hot, sexy guy. Daniel annoys the crap out of her and now she has to make s

I absolutely loved this book if you are a fan of the Mortal Instruments this is the book for you. It’s like those books just on crack and more grown up. You have hunters and handlers trying to rid the world of all things evil like trolls and demons.



Evelyn is a 135 year old badass demon hunter. She has been through her fair amounts of assignments, and has done it alone she doesn’t want or need any one because of what might happen if she lost them



Daniel is the newbie, rookie, and ass-hat if you wi

Nanee's Review: review by upallnightreadallday.blogspot.com

The characters fit perfectly together and the story is creatively written and unique. Evelyn is a amazingly strong self assured women who takes no shit off anybody but met her match when Daniel comes in the picture. Daniel loves spending time with Evelyn but hates the training she puts him through. Love their banter and competition with each other and their secret thoughts and glances. Love the tattoos they all are magical. Tons of actio

I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars. It was *almost* really good. Interesting concept, interesting (and kickass) characters, the writing was just a little clumsy. I suspect this author will be much better a few books down the line...

Our Heroine and Our Hero are both demon hunters. She's a century-old hardened pro, he's a wet-behind-the-ears rookie assigned to her. She is reluctant to open her heart, but the physical attraction is immediate and obvious.

I think if the author works a little mor

I'd say if anything this was an 'interesting' read. I didn't find it boring but I didn't absolutely adore it. I found that it was in the middle. It was well written and edited to. I can only assume that this will turn into or is the start of a series. I can only hope it keeps getting better.

“After finishing my breakfast, I puttered around for the next hour and tried not to think about Daniel. I glared at the chair in the middle of the back room as if he were still perched in it, shirtless with that shit-eating grin plastered across his goddamned face. Once, I almost sat in the chair — after carefully locking the door, of course, so no one would accidentally wander in and find me with my nose pressed to the leather, trying to see if it still smelled like him. And then came the self-inflicted chiding and browbeating for even thinking about doing something as ridiculous and lame and downright girlie." ~Evelyn” 11 likes
