Huntress Rising takes place in a future post apocalyptic United States. The population has been decimated, and werewolves and vampires have come out of hiding. Maat is a werewolf hunter, whose skill has earned her the name "Angel of Death" among the surviving werewolves. Xavier is a military man and skilled fighter. They find themselves in a struggle against evil forces that seek to destroy them.

This is an excellent book, and the first in the new Angel of Death series. The characters are well de

I was excited to pick up another urban fantasy filled with werewolves and vampires, but what I got was a fabulous bad-ass werewolf killer named Maat Ferris, nicknamed by the werewolves as Suriel, Angel of Death.

It's the year 2085 in a post-apocalyptic landscape filled with vicious werewolves and vampires trying to eliminate humankind.  Maat has killed 400 werewolves since she was 15 years old. Her mother and brothers were killed in front of her by "the fuzzies" and her uncle taught her how to ki

Huntress Rising is the first in a new series. It takes place in a violent post-apocalyptic world where werewolves and vampires have come out of the closet. The United States are no longer united and it’s everyone for themselves. Our heroine is a werewolf hunter extraordinaire who has been ripped from her home and drawn into the morass of politics in this new world. This is a complex tale that keeps you riveted. I look forward to seeing where the author takes us next.

Very imaginative take on the world after the fall of most of civilization. It has werewolves and vampires. I was sorry to come to the end. Hopefully there will be another book in the series. Enjoyed the characters, no wimpy weak or idiotic women waiting on the big strong man to save them.
This does end on a cliffhanger but it was so good I forgive the author as long as she does not leave us hanging too long.

I always enjoy this author's work and this one is no different. I think this story got 3 stars instead of 4 because of the brutality of the world/main characters which is a personal preference rather than anything lacking in the story. Life is brutal post war and plague and that has shaped the characters. The plot moves quickly with a few twists and turns and the main characters are well fleshed out. The story finishes during a pause in the action. I would say the book ends at a conclusion of Ma ...more

This was not your usual paranormal romance, it was more a dystopian fantasy set in an post apocalyptic world, focused around a werewolf hunter and mercenary Maat Ferris, named after an Eptian goddess, Maat witnessed her family being torn to pieces by werewolves, and trained by her ex- military uncle as a child, she is an accomplished monster hunter, with a sixth sense that means she knows if there are werewolves in the vicinity. She is kidnapped by the government to take part in a secret mission ...more

I love books set in 'post-apocalyptic ' , urban fantasy worlds - especially those that give rise to werewolves and vampires .

Maat is a Werewolf hunter , one of the best , earning her the title of Angel of Death .
But all is not as it seems and when the Vice President visits her community rather than kill her , as she expects , she finds he is here to recruit her for a mission she does not want .
Maat finds that not all werewolves are killers and that she just might have competition for her title

Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was an intense, rollercoaster of a paranormal romance. Maat is a paranormal hunter whose intense need for violence and revenge leads her to constant life of life and death situations. I loved how bad ass she was but her constant need to kill every werewolf she meets eventually made her too blood thirsty. Her complex feelings and violent interactions with Xavier are just as turbulent and disturbing since they're supp
