The Iron Hunt

This book is the start of a new urban fantasy series, The Hunter Kiss by Marjorie M. Liu that I am eagerly looking forward to that releases in July. It may already be in stores. I have loved Liu's Dirk and Steele series and I am looking forward to trying out her newest series. Gena Showalter is having a contest on her blog where you can win a copy of The Iron Hunt and a tote bag. There also is a brief excerpt for the book.

Here is the summary:
Silver smoke winds around my torso, peeling away from my ribs and back, stealing the dark mist covering my hands and lower extremities…tattoos dissolving into demon flesh, coalescing into small dark bodies. My boys. The only friends I have in this world. Demons.

I am a demon hunter. I am a demon. I am Hunter Kiss.

By day, her tattoos are her armor. By night, they unwind from her body to take on forms of their own. Demons of the flesh, turned into flesh. This is the only family demon hunter Maxine Kiss has ever known. The only way to live—and the very way she’ll die. For one day, her demons will abandon her for her daughter to assure their own survival—leaving Maxine helpless against her enemies

But such is the way of Earth’s last protector—the only one standing between humanity and the demons breaking out from behind the prison veils. It is a life lacking in love, reveling in death, until one moment—and one man—changes everything… Excerpt

I actually have today as the release date for this novel? I ran into B&N around dinner time to grab Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione, but will pick up this one later in the week, I hope. Sounds good!

Christine, you're right. It was released on June 24... Unfortunately, when I went to the bookstore on Monday, they couldn't find it and the one I went yesterday didn't receive their stock of it yet :(

It sounds good and I think it's going to be a nice change from the Dirke and Steele :P Can't wait to get my hand on it either :P hey Jill... buddy review? :P

Nath, I don't have the book yet either. I am not sure when I will get it either. I would be happy to do a review with you, but it may be a while before I get my hands on the book. I will keep you updated.

I have been looking for this book since its rlease date. It's still not at my local borders or any other book stores around yet. Hopefully it will arrive soon, I really want to read it.

Hmmm, sounds like this book is hard to get your hands on. That isn't good. I read the excerpt and it seems really different; good, but different. I am excited about it.
