Twilight Hunter (Execution Underground #1)
Jace McCannon has one loyalty: the Execution Underground. Despite his mixed blood, his hatred for the werewolves he hunts is legendary. But in his search for a sadistic killer, Jace finds himself face to face with a s ...more
A bad book dazzles you with it's bullshit.
Following a common theme in mysteries, women are turning up mutilated and raped posthumously. Our bull of a hero (not literally, folks), Jace, is on the villain's trail, tracking the murders through the street of Rochester. Jace works for a division of the Execution Underground (aside: my favorite part of this book was probably that name), specializing in the slaughter of werewolves des ...more
Coming off the high of SHADOW HUNTER, TWILIGHT HUNTER, the first full novel in the Execution Underground series, had a lot to live up to. Unfortunately, Jace and Frankie just didn’t do it for me in the way that Damon and Tiffany did, though I did enjoy the book. If you were looking for any kind of resolution of the cliffhanger that SHADOW HUNTER left us with, don’t pick up TWILIGHT HUNTER expecting any answers. What you will find, however, is a hot rom ...more
Set up, this book has a grisly start, a mutilated body, one of many and jace is there to find clues to the sicko killer. Someone else is lurking about too though!
Characters, Jace is a half breed werewolf, he hates werewolves and hunts them d ...more
Great start to a series featuring ass kicking band of brothers in arm hunting supernaturals.
Plot and Characters:
Jace is our hero. He's the best werewolf hunter on the East coast. His secret is that he has a nose for tracking wolves. Literally. Only one other member of the Execution Underground knows Jace is a werewolf half-breed. His mother was human and his father a werewolf. Thanks to Jace's abusive father he hates werewolves. That is until he meets our heroine, Frankie.
Twilight Hunter has a interesting world, even if not much in it is fresh or new. If you want to be positive you can say that, even if the world-building is very light, this same "lack" avoided the info-dumps or the lull that the first books in a new series usually suffer from.
I loved the first half, but I was growing more and more bored with the second. There are so many time that the misunderstanding trope can be used before it became stale. Here it was used every few chapters, creating a v ...more

Kait Ballenger delivers a sexy romance with plenty of suspense and humor in the latest addition to the Execution Underground series!
As a member of the Execution Underground, bad boy and half-breed Jace McCannon lives to hunt and kill werewolves. While tracking a vicious killer on assignment, he encounters a beautiful alpha female werewolf and goes against everything he stands for when he lets her live and brings her to his home. Frankie isn’t just ...more
After reading Shadow Hunter, I was really excited to read Twilight Hunter. Kait wrote a great story with great characters in Shadow Hunter and she did the same in this one, it was a really good read.
The plot was really nice, it was an important part of the story, there was a lot of suspense, a lot of action but none of that was interfering with the romance. For me, the romance in a book is really important and I was glad that Kait wrote that book like she did. I hope that I'm expressing myself c ...more
Ms. Ballenger did not disappoint. After reading Shadow Hunter (Execution Underground #0.5), I was anxious and excited to get to this installment. Ms. Ballenger’s introduction to this series was remarkable. Twilight Hunter has a gripping story line with nonstop action, suspenseful twists, and well developed characters. Just like its prequel, Twilight Hunter was an awesome read.
Left with no choice, Jace is forced to work with the very beings he hunts. There is a mystery to be solved , and this se ...more
My English review
I’ve read the Kait Ballenger’s novella before having the opportunity to read the first novel and I admit that I was curious to see how the story would be. Yes I was looking forward to see if I would find the characters I met in the first volume but eventually I completely forgot the novella when started.
Jace is a hunter pursuing rogues werewolves, yet he is himself hybrid and would be killed if his partners learn the truth about him. However, he enjoys his j ...more
Da quanto non leggevo un bell’urban fantasy come questo.
Mi sono mancate le storie con creature superiori e dal temperamento dominante, alpha, come i licantropi. ;-)
È come essere in una puntata di Teen Wolf, ma con i ruoli capovolti. Azione e romance insieme. Suspense e dark horror in un colpo solo.
Nella storia raccontata da KAIT BALLENGER, ad essere una splendida lupa alpha è una donna. È lei la donna dal temperamento forte, dallo spirito indomito. La sua strada si incrocia con quella di un cac ...more
L’Execution Underground è una sorta di agenzia segreta dedita alla caccia e all’eliminazione di creature soprannaturali (malvage). La task-force di Rochester, New York, è capitanata in particolare da Damon, occhi azzurro ghiaccio, leader nell’annientamento dei vampiri, ed è poi composta dagli altri cacciatori Jace, David, Shane, Ash e Trent, con specializzazioni varie, dai demoni ai fantasmi.
Sebbene questa serie abbia parecchi punti in comune con altre già lette, de ...more

I have been anxiously waiting to read Twilight Hunter by Kait Ballenger and I knew I would not be disappointed at all because the minute I read the first page…I was captured into the Execution Underground world. I literally had a hard time putting down this book. My poor hubby and two girls were neglected for a day and a half because of reading Twilight Hunter. (I may have also snapped at the hubby when he tried to talk to me…he’s not talking right now beca ...more

Where the Night Kind Roam
Another great book from Kait Ballenger! TWILIGHT HUNTER is a sexy, dark, intriguing, action packed roller coaster ride of emotion and hard hitting action with a twist on my favorite supernatural species thrown in. The Execution Underground is an elite force to take out rogue supernaturals. Jace is the best werewolf hunter on the east coast, but this case is his hardest yet. Women are dying, and dying horrific death, mutilated beyond recogn ...more

What stood out to me the most was Execution Underground the agency. These group of men may have the same goal but they have their own cliques inside the group. It's every man for himself the Hunters loyal to the cause but not on each other. I love a solid brotherhood but we also know that men, Alpha males in particular, have big egos and KBallenger used that flaw to apply a little discord within Execution Underground. I am not a big fan of their leader, Damon Brock, an ...more
I had previously read Kait's E.U novella in After Dark and enjoyed it very much... rating it 5 stars. Therefore... I had high expectations for this book and Kait certainly has not disappointed me. Shifters, romance, fights... the passion and thrills will keep you on the edge of your seat. Warning! This is not a book to read to lull yourself to sleep!

This was absolutely awful!
Poor writing, weak plot and messed up characters. Really, I don't know if there is anything good in this book.
Jace, the hero, was an half-breed asshole with daddy issues, who kept taking it all out on Frankie, the heroine, just because she was a werewolf and his piece of shit father was a werewolf as well.
Guess what, bitch? You're half werewolf too!
It was beyond ridiculous the shit he threw Frankie's way because her race was the same as his father's. The man was garbag ...more
Libro godibile che si legge velocemente. La trama è abbastanza articolata, anche se in alcuni punti i protagonisti hanno perso un casino di tempo per non combinare nulla.
Certo, con un serial killer che gira per la città possiamo permetterci di perdere tempo a litigare con il promesso fidanzato dell'alfa, no?
Inoltre, come accennato nel titolo, Jace (non Jace di Shadowhunters dai mille cognomi) scoprirà la realtà su se stesso e sulla sua fa ...more
I can not say enough about how much I LOVED this book. In a genre where it can be hard to come up with something fresh, not to mention gripping and well- written, Ms. Ballenger has raised the bar.
I am a total fan girl!
