100% new breed of hunter.


After a bumpy start as the only female demon hunter in the top secret Brotherhood of David, Nava heads to Prague for her first undercover mission: unmasking a demon movie star.

She’d be all kinds of thrilled if it weren’t for the fact that her fellow hunter-with-benefits, Rohan, has reclaimed his rock star status and

Lana *Lifeinwordsandlyricscom*
No sophomore curse for this one. Nope. Just as good as the first one, in some ways even better. More character development, more unbalanced situations, the beginnings of new myphologies. This is the stuff!
I'm even growing a bit more attached to Rohan. And what's there not to love about Nava?
"Folding and organizing were for saps. I prefered hunting and rooting, the thrill of the never-ending treasure hunt for my personal belonings."


Preach, girl!

Over and out.

I kept hoping the Brotherhood would spring my own personal Giles on me, but sadly that had not yet come to pass. Buffy had lied big time about the perks of being chosen.

It hasn't really been all that long (February) since I read book one in the Nava Katz series but considering the amount I read, the various genres and plots and characters rattling around in my (admittedly otherwise hollow) head, I needed no recap to remember where thing stood for these characters and the plotlines that had been

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting is book two in the Nava Katz series by Deborah Wilde. This series needs to be read in order.

I had a fun time reading book 2. Their is so much snark, sexual tension, and action.

Nava’s on her first mission as a demon-hunter. She’s trying so hard to find her feet in the world as a demon-hunter in an organization that has been only male up until now. Her relationship with Rohan (the friends with benefits guy) is changing and who knows where it will go. Rohan and

I was really contemplating how much stars I should give this one - I was jumping back and forth between 3 and 4 again and again.

I really really enjoy this series, Nava, the world building and other characters. But the miscommunication, the amount of lying to themselves, irrational character behaviour and such was a little bit too much for me.

I don‘t mind OW drama as much as some of my GR friends, but it should not take place the whole book for me to enjoy it. It was just too much for me, his

I was hoping the original storyline and interesting characters would make up for the lack of romance but unfortunately, it doesn't. Don't get me wrong, there's sex in this one and the hint that feelings are involved, it's just more about scratching an itch and regretting it than romance. I'm not invested enough to wait for Nava and Rohan to grow the heck up and accept the feelings they have for each other. A wee bit too high school with nasty teachers, petty squabbles, him acting the

I do love this series but am somewhat put off by the off again/on again romance factor. So many books go through this angsty romance stuff which I find tormentingly boring, enough so that it detracts from the story rather than adding that bit of extra spice.

Aside from my romance factor whine, the witty repartee remains up to par and the hip factor, together with the comic portions, manage to lighten up parts of the tale.

Because of the teenage romance angst, and by the looks

I've rarely been so disappointed in a sequel - and what makes it worse is that the writing, the dialogue, the action, was still all on point.

But the romance was shot to utter shite. The hero gets a bloody f*cking BLOWJOB from an OW after he hooked up with the heroine in the last book, and as if that's not bad enough, he kisses and flirts with his ex-girlfriend (another OW) MULTIPLE TIMES while STILL stringing the heroine along with sex!!! And she's lost enough brain cells since the last book to

Nava's adventures continue, and she gets her wish of being allowed to join the guys on an overseas mission.

She is still as irreverent as ever, making her own way instead of blindly following directions, and proving that she might be just as good as her fellow fighters.

The story takes place in Prague, where Nava has two missions - to help uncover the demon identity of a mega movie star, and the secret mission of finding a way to get her brother inducted into the brotherhood.

At the same time, her

Wait! No!!! And now I have to wait until September. Damnation!
Excuse my profanity, but... Just as I was totally invested in Nava's story, the book ended. And now I have to wait.
Let's backtrack.
I liked book one of the series well enough, it was cute and fun. Totally Wilde's Mo, if you ask me.
When I started this book I thought I'll be getting more of the same. Fun, cute, imaginative and your usual PNR rump. Great entertainment. In fact, The Unlikeable Demon Hunter kinda reminds me of Ghost

While I really enjoyed the first Nava Katz book, this one was a pretty big step back for me. My biggest complaint with the first book was the romance aspect between Nava and Rohan felt really overbearing and took away from Nava's character, which I thought was the most interesting promise of the series. Instead of remedying that, this book devoted most of its effort to "developing" that relationship. I use quotation marks because I don't really feel like much was really developed or at least not ...more

Better!

I'm glad I waited until Book 2 to write a review on this series. After book one I was up in the air on continuing. But I finished my last book so fast I was like let's go ahead and give Nava another try. And I'm glad that I did.

Book 2 is named Sting. Maybe I looked over it but not sure if that title is tied to something in the book or not.

The narrater is Hollie Jackson. She impressed me. She gives Rohan a savory voice that matches him well. She is having to do multiple male voices all

I thoroughly enjoyed the first outing of Nava (the very unlikeable!) and was looking forward to seeing what direction Deborah would go in the second book. I was not disappointed at all.
Nava is trying hard to find her feet in the world of the demon-hunting previously all male brotherhood while looking for a way to help her brother Ari and keep her best friend a secret from said brotherhood. Her friends with benefits relationship with Rohan is tested by the mission, the arrival of Rohan's

This one was hard for me to rate because there were parts I really liked, and parts I really hated.

I think it killed Rohan for me as a love interest. He got off on the sexist shit in Boys Club, and on her being constantly put in her place with their bullshit groupie plan. And then his behavior flashed between hot and cold so fast that I got whiplash. Also, (view spoiler)

Nava is still her crass and vulgar self, and I'm undecided as to whether I mean that as a compliment or not.

The problem I faced with this book is two fold. The first being that I hardly ever seem to understand the reasoning behind some of Nava's and Rohan's actions. The second problem is somewhat related to the first. Nava, who is usually a strong, confident, take no shit from the Brotherhood character, allows friends, lovers and family to talk down to her. Not only does she allow these people

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Snarky, sassy, sexy, action-packed fun for some and dread for others. Nava has returned this time we have a full on operation underway and this unlikely, unlikeable demon hunter is here to show what she’s got. She still the girl with an attitude and following rules precisely still is not part of her forte. I personally still like this brand of demon hunter. She has lots of tude and a great way to release some of that bent up hostility to following strenuous rules.

Action, action, action. Snark

In the second book of the Nava Katz series Drio, Rohan and Nova are going off to Prague, on a mission to figure out whether the famous Samson King is a demon or not, with a firm instruction for Nava to 'not think for herself and to do as she's told'. In other words, let the men do the job and try to not get in the way. Snort. It's like they don't know her at all.
Meanwhile, Ari is on a self distraction path, off fighting demons despite the fact that he cannot actually make the kill shot.
So, not

THE STORY SO FAR:

The Katz household was turned on its head when Nava stumbled home half drunk and on the morning after's walk of shame, only to interrupt the secretive and sanctified final ceremonial testing of her twin's goal to shift from being an initiate to that of full blown Rasha. Nava had once held the title of a sure bet, a promised life of the mediocre stardom available to tap dancers at the pinnacle of performance. Teenage injury had altered that paradigm, however, to the never

Oh the snarky, all the glorious snark. I liked Nava a lot more in this book, she's lost a lot of the whiny self-pity moments.

There were a lot more action and character scenes than in the first book, I figure because book 1 did a lot of the heavy world-building work. That said there's still plenty more world-building going on. Especially, when Rohan goes back to his rock star world for the mission.

Great interactions between Nava, and other women who are not her mom or tied with The Brotherhood

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting #2 - Babyslay vs. psycho spawns. I missed the first book, how sad! Not reading book one did not take anything away from book two. She's an abrasive, smart mouth with an over-sex-drive, which is OK, because she can kick butt. I love the way Rohan trains her as she's fighting for her life. Ms. Wilde is a wonderful author: her colorful descriptions; the humor; a reasonable amount of vulgar language. It's true that not all real people use vl, much less curse. The ...more

Nava is off on an undercover mission to Prague with Rohan and Drio. The plan is simple; look slutty, keep silent, get close to Samson, figure out what kind of demon he is and kill him. But nothing with Nava is ever simple and she fails to meet her brief on day one of their little outing. Still, she’s dedicated. It’s not like she has a side mission no-one knows about. Is it?

If you liked book 1, you have to read book 2. I absolutely love Deborah’s style of writing. It’s entertaining from start to

Once in a while a series comes along that makes you drop everything you're doing and lose yourself in that world. Then you want to stalk the author to make sure she's working on your next fix. The Nava Katz series is this drug for me.

Things I loved:
1. Nava--or Lolita, as she's going by in this one. She's the badass heroine I want to meet in all my fiction. She has a past, and pain gives her depth. She's the kind of person to whom everyone can relate on some level.
2. Chemistry. Wilde has a knack

Whew! The Unlikeable Demon Hunter series is amazing. I already read book 1 – so I jumped at the chance to read book 2, and I was not disappointed. The narrator & heroine, Nava, grows and changes a lot during this book. She still has issues, and she still has conversations with herself that are laugh out loud funny – she’s still raunchy and insouciant – but she’s growing and becoming more and more likeable. She’s a Rasha – a demon hunter – initiated by accident (there are No females in the ...more

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting by Deborah Wilde was fast paced, action packed, gripped you from the first page kind of book. You’re thrust back into the world of Nava, she is still trying to acclimate to being a demon hunter, working out how to help her brother, along with figuring out her feelings for Rohan. This book takes you to Prague, where Nava, Rohan, and Drio go undercover to figure out if the famous actor Samson is a demon. We also learn so much more about the brotherhood, they are ...more

I absolutely adored this book! Such a brilliantly cheeky read that had me laughing and feeling great, from cover to cover.

The author has a major talent for telling you a story, no that’s not right, showing you, so that you really feel there, being a cheek right a long with our main character. I loved it! There’s nothing like a fun-filled, sassy demon hunter to make my evening reads loads of excitement and entertainment.

Wilde created character filled with personality and a true level of depth

A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. This award-winning author is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way. “It takes a bad girl to fight evil. Go Wilde.”
