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

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.

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

Psychocat Reads Review of DIVINITY by Patricia Leever

(I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

There seems to be a growing trend around Psychocat Reads Reviews of me not getting to read books on my TBR list until a second book in a series comes out. Then I get to read them together and do back to back reviews. In the case of DIVINITY that is exactly what happened.

What drew me toward DIVINITY in the first place? Bad ass cover design? Check. Bad ass female character?

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!

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
Divinity is short, simple, and sweet with a heavy dose of kickass. Think of this as a quick read with the perfect mix of playful and heavy tones in theme… and an excessively difficult female trailed by a man on a mission.

Evelyn Brighton is a 135-year-old demon hunter with an extraordinary skill set that makes her deadly. She has not only mastered the techniques of fighting and magic use, but is one of the few who can wield the prestigious divinity. In short, she is lethal and carries a no bull a

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

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

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

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 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.

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

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.

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'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” 12 likes
