The Demon's Daughter by Paula Altenburg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
ARC supplied by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The Demon's Daughter is an interesting blend of paranormal and sci-fi in a western setting. You would think that those things don't necessarily mix, but the author is able to bring them together in a fascinating way.
Goddesses and Demons are mortal enemies. What happens when the Demon Lord falls in love with one of those goddesses? Nothing good when that love turns to hate. Without his knowledge a child is born from that union. This child, Arie, is a half-breed hated by both mortals and immortals. Arie is raised by a priestess and grows up not knowing what she is or who her true paraents are. This is a problem when she meets Hunter, a Demon Slayer, who is sent to capture her because of her parentage. Hunter hates all demons and their demon spawn. He has vowed to rid the world of them. Can Hunter put aside his hatred to help Arie? Can they work together against the demons who want to kill them?
The author does an excellent job developing each character. I really liked Arie and Hunter. They both are strong characters who struggle with the past and who they want to be. I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading the next installment in this series.
