From the moment I was born, I was cursed.
My name is Abigail. I’m a demon hunter. A priest gave me that job after he took me in when my family died.
After moving from one foster home to another it was easy to leave with the priest. What made it easier was that he believed me when I told him I could see ghosts.

What can I say about this book? Seriously I am having a hard time doing a review because I don't know how to express the feeling I felt after reading the book. It is a good book, I love it, I love how it was written, my imagination worked, I even dreamed of it every time I read it.

The romance between characters balanced all the story. You have to try reading this.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review through Lovers of Paranormal.

Abigail is sort of a hot mess, isn't she? She's an alcoholic (at 19) but sort of has a good reason for it. After all, she did see her entire family's death first hand. It's hard to judge that. That's a difficult thing to get over but she copes through her job. Abigail is a demon hunter and has been taken in by a priest who has become her surrogate family, taking advantage of her abilities to see ghosts. Her best f

'Hunters' is the first book in Sheridan's new Demon series and follows troubled teenager Abigail as she hunts demons alongside a few other interesting characters.

I was blown away by how good this book actually was! I hardly even know where to start with this review. I was still thinking about the story the day after I read it, which isn't something that happens very often for me.

The book has a pretty dark tone which really made it stand out to me among all the other urban fantasy/paranormal rom

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal) and here it goes…

Hunters by Aoife Marie Sheridan is not like the typical paranormal books I usually read. First off, it is New Adult which I wasn’t expecting and I prefer to read PNR that is very adult so my review may not be as helpful. With that said, I thought Hunters was okay. I love the mysteriousness of Zee, the hero. I am iffy about the heroine, Abigail however. She is way too needy for my liking. Another minus f

Abigail is a 19 year old demon hunter. Her life until she was eleven had been pretty brutal. She was taken in my John, a priest who taught her all about demons, after her parents and brother died.

I'm a fan of the authors, I have read the first two books in The Saskia Trilogy, so I was really excited when she gave me a copy of Hunters to review.

3/3.5ish stars!

I have never really been a fan of paranormal books. Love the movies... but I never take the time to actually read stories that involve ghosts. This book is an exception! It's not just ghosts. There's heaven, hell, angels and demons as well!

I really did like the story line. It was a good idea, but there were way too many blank spaces. I constantly felt like EVERYTHING was happening at once, but we were given no inform

Loved this book. If I could I would have read this in one sitting. It captivates you from beginning to last. The story was very interesting with shrouded mysteries plus there's the twist. What I like more is probably the romance. It just fitted everything. Not too much but just right. I also liked the other characters. They fit in perfectly with the Abigail's character. Although Abigail's character need to grow up more. I'm hoping that happens in the next book besides that I enjoyed reading Hunt ...more

Abigail is a 19 year old Demon Hunter. She is essentially an emotional mess, has a bad attitude and is basically an alcoholic.

Hunters by Aoife Marie Sheridan was a great book! I loved it! Abigail is a troubled teen dealing with the loss of her whole family. But the love she shares with her friends and her adopted dad is a great story line as well. She has some very special abilities and finds things about herself in this book that she didn’t know. I feel for this character and can understand what a confusing time it is in her life. I can’t wait to see what the next book has to tell us about all the characters in this b ...more

First of all I'd like to thank Aoife Marie Sheridan for sending me a copy. I really looked forward reading the book, since it sounded really exciting and it had fairly good review.

Personally I thought the book was okay-ish. It wasn't entirely bad but it wasn't what I would call good either. I found there was no development of the characters, they all seemed very shallow...and I just couldn't connect to neither of them - not even Zee.

I enjoyed this book. There were a few parts that were fairly slow, but overall it was enjoyable. I think that the biggest problem that I had with it were the grammar errors. I find a fairly significant amount of grammar errors very distracting when I'm reading a book and for some reason that is unknown to me, they are even more distracting when I'm reading an ebook. The story was enjoyable though and I found that most of the characters has substance; they seemed like they could have been real pe ...more

At first it was hard to get into the story, the prologue is told from Daniel's point of view and then the first chapter starts with Abigail's and it keeps changing through the book.
I didn't like Abigail at first but then I got used to her, she can be a bit annoying, but she has a lot going on.
Daniel was my favorite character, and even when I still don't know know what he is, I know that he is good and really cares about Abigail.

This was a fun read that didnt go where I expected it to. The plot wasn't the usual, predictable story. It was exciting and easy to become invested in the characters.

The only the thing that stopped me from giving it 5 stars was that the main character, Abigail, has such a self loathing she was hard to relate to since I never felt she was that flawed of a character.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I've read several books by Aoife Marie Sheridan so I was looking forward to reading Hunters.

Abigail is a mess but she has seen a lot in her 19 years. If it weren't for Daniel, she wouldn't even be alive. He saved her when she was just a kid and he's been watching over her ever since. They're both demon hunters and for some reason, demons seem to be after Abigail at an increasing

This book is one for the ages. Abigail is a demon hunter but she is being attached herself. She doesn’t understand why but fighting alongside Daniel, she feels safe. When Stephen and the REOTE take her into questioning, things go haywire. Excellent writing. Any wait for the second installment.

This book was good!! I was hooked from the beginning and the storyline I found fascinating.
It had a nice fast pace to it and I didn’t get bored which is a plus!! And with the action and turns in this book I found it hard to put down.
The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger and left me wanting to know what happens next so off I go.
what to say about this book... This book is complex, at times weird, but leaves the reader is awe by the end of the book. I finished the book last night but I am still having a hard time digesting everything I read.

The main character in the story is Abigail. She has a complicated life full of grief, self loathing, and pain. at times she is very cynical and mostly walks around with a bad attitude/chip on her shoulder. But Abigail has had anything but an easy life. It's hard to blame her for bein

Hunters is the first instalment in The Demon Series by Aoife Marie Sheridan.
I enjoyed the novel, loved the characters but the protagonist, Abigail, I hated her!
It’s the first time for me to dislike a central character so much.

This is the first book in the Demon Series, and it's a little part religious, because it's priests who run the demon hunters. BUT it's also a little more urban fantasy, because it's got a lot of action and whole lot of fun. Things like exorcisms and haunting, and possessions. And a heap load of sad heart wrenching pasts. I'm quite amazed at what this book is becoming. I won't like it's dark, and gritty, and I have a feeling there's going to be a whole lot of heart ache, more than there already i ...more

Hunters is the first book in what promises to be a really intriguing and exciting series. Abigail is a young girl who has the special ability of seeing ghosts. Not only did she lose her family at a young age but she witnessed their deaths - something which haunts her to this day. Raised by Father Peter, a member of a secret society that hunts demons, Abigail is trained to use her abilities to hunt demons (some of which might have been involved in the death of her family).

After a rocky start, I was actually pretty drawn into this book, so much so that I would pick it up on my iPhone and read it while waiting at red lights (no, Mom, I wasn't reading while driving. I was stopped). Sheridan has painted a picture of a tortured young woman, one that is riding on the edge of a knife and quite literally may slip off at any moment. It was engaging, it was filled with action and suspense, and it was a fun read.

Abigail is 19. She should be attending college and spending time with friends, but that is not the case. Abigail is a demon hunter. She can also see and communicate with ghosts.

Well, damn... aren't you mean for leaving me like this and open-mouthed?
So... let's start from the beginning. First, I want to say, Abigail isn't how I expected. I don't like her much, mostly for all the stupid drinking and acting like an idiot. I know it's not nice to say, but I really wanted to strangle her with my own hands at times. She's seriously f@cked up! And, for God's sake, take that poor gu

If there is anything to say about this novel, it is that it was disappointing. It wasn't by any means bad- not at all. It just... didn't sit right with me.

Here's what it's about:
The story follows nineteen-year-old Abigail. She's had a hard life, bouncing from foster home to foster home after her family died right in front of her face, and is eventually picked up by charming Father Peter who takes her in. Oh, little did she know that Father Peter was actually a hunter who rid the world of demons.

This book was sometimes a little strange. Abigail has a big problem. True her life has had a lot of grief and pain. She has a real attitude problem. Her life has been anything but easy. She's got demons of her own and then she hunts demons. Wow! That has to be a hard one. I felt for her in a way and yet in another way, there's a lot of people who have had a rough life. She needs an escape method and her method of choice is drinking and that has made her an alcoholic. The author wrote

this book has you have questions along the way some get answered some are not and more in the end are added. Daniel is my biggest mystery. Love him. Sheridan writes him as a mystery though. I gentle , lethal adoring mystery. He loves Abigail and gave up a lot to protect her and try to get her to see him as more than a friend. He is faithful and kind and in the end he sacrifices alot for her.
