I think this book will be loved by a lot of people because it has popular tropes that people usually like. I actually found this to be okay, I didn't like it or hate it. And here are my reasons:

The story grabbed my attention from the start as you follow Nadira who has woken up 20 years into the future. She struggles to finds answers AND deal with the fact she lost many years of her life. Theres a twist I didnt see coming and I appreciated that. While I was a bit confused at first, it added much to Nadiras story. Nice job Miss Davis! The story is fast paced and theres plenty of action as well. This is a quick and fun type of ...more
Every warrior  needs true motivation. During the difficult times ahead, a sense of duty will only take you so far.
Waking up buried inside a coffin wasn't the way Nadira imagined her morning. It's definitely not the most glorious way to wake up for anyone, especially for a legendary demon hunter. She can only imagine how disappointed the rest of Children of Orion will be to find out that she let herself be kidnapped. Now, she has to find a way to escape and figure out what the hell
Overall, this book takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions as you read and learn more about Nadira. The author did a great job with this storyline and ...more
I have read a lot of urban fantasy, I mean a lot. I adore the genre. It hits that spot of fun and fantasy. This story hits a lot of those fun spots. The great kick-ass heroine that channels a bit of the Mercy Thompson vibes with some ...more

This was the second book that I won in my book reading club. ^_^
Has a trigger. If youre afraid of the idea of being buried alive or waking up in a coffin, the first chapter may be a little much for you.
It took a while for me to get into enjoying the book. Azaaa introduces a world that the main character doesnt know because shes been dead for 25 years so I was as confused as the main character, even though I knew what the year was like ...more
A well written urban fantasy with lots of action, interesting characters, a villain you'll love to hate and just enough loose ends to make you anxious to get hold of the next story in the series without leaving you with frustrating cliffhangers.
I enjoyed this one and would love to find out what ...more
Azaaa Daviss This Time is great blend of paranormal and a kind of coming of age story with a twist of are you kidding me great twists. Nadira/Roquelle gives new meaning to the term multiple personality. As she/they come to terms with who they are and start to work together, the world is faced with demons, a particularly nasty demon prince and a hot demon Duke were sure to see in future books. Despite a few editing errors, This Time is a great read and I look forward to ...more
I don't even know where to start. The authors writing is superb. Her characters are not all lovable but all are well developed. The plot is complex and original. The world the author created is grim, full of betrayal, intrigue, some backstabbing, and a lot ...more
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
The case is no different for Nadira, described as a Child of ...more
The opening of the novel was brilliantly done. We begin with Nadira waking up and the slow realisation of her being inside a coffin. It was a very tense, ...more
This Time is about Nadira Holden, a demon hunter. The book starts off fast-paced and exciting. We learn about Nadiras upbringing and belonging to the Children of Orion, a sect of demon hunters. She had a reputation as a top notch demon hunter but something happens, she dies, and then she is resurrected in present day, and things have definitely changed in the world the live in.
When the blurb of this book compares it to Anita Blake, I can see why, except Nadira is much more ...more
This Time wastes absolutely no time diving into the depths of a strange and unknown reality, where demons and humanity appear to be coexisting within the same reality. We're introduced to this world by Nadira Holden, who wakes in a casket, digs her way out, only to find out it isn't some horrible joke; she has been dead for 25 years, and a lot has changed since she was a demon hunter, and, you know, alive.
Watching the ...more
Azaaa asked me to review her novel for her and I am so utterly glad I did. Once I started reading it I couldnt put it down, I was reading it any chance I got. She doesnt disapoint at all, most books I find I think are way too short and there could be more to it. But no this author creates this world full or creatures and humans and hybreds. The story unfolds beautifully and has an amazing plot with begining middle and end thaht doesnt leave you wanting.
Nadira is a monster/demon hunter that was ...more
I got some serious Buffy vibes in the first few chapters. Seeing as Ive watched Buffy upwards of five times, thats quite the compliment. Nadira digs her way out of her own grave, only to find that years have passed and the things have changed drastically. She has ...more
Told in third person, the story is a little less immediate than Im used to in this genre.
Nadira is quite a fascinating character, the best of the best, it was interesting to see such an archetype flounder in the modern era, after being dead for the last 25 years or so.
Her counterpart, Roquelle, was more interesting to me. Shes a succubus, like the mc from ...more
Nadira Holden is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Renowned for her skills as a demon hunter, she finds herself a misfit in a world where demons have made peace with humans and hunting them is illegal. Despite all the unanswered questions about herself, her place in the world, and her former demon hunting associates in the secretive Children of Orion organisation, Nadira knows she must take up the fight at least one more time in order ...more
I found the premise of demons and demon-hunters to be intriguing but not caricatured. The author can pull empathy from you for many of the leading characters, whether they are good or bad. How true that we all have those traits inside us. Just like Nadira, we dont ...more
Weve all woken up on the wrong side of the bed. However, when Nadira woke up from her slumber, she had every reason to be bitchy.
1.) Nadira clawed her way out of a buried coffin.
2.) Recently resurrected, she was in a constant battle with hunters and demons. That is when she wasnt being held captive.
3.) It was revealed shed been dead for 25 years. Everyone has aged, unlike herself.
4.) Bombshells keep getting thrown at ...more
This Time was well written, with a strong cast of characters. I enjoyed reading this book immensely. Azaaa Davis, know how to spend a tale, which grabs the ...more
She fell in love with reading as a high school freshman and continues to read, write, and draw today. Her background in social work helps her portray realistic characters in otherworldly--and sometimes terrifying--situations. A New York native, Azaaa currently lives in New Hampshire (USA) with her husband and ...more
