This Time by Azaaa Davis
(Nadira Holden, Demon Hunter #1)
Resurrected into present-day New York, Nadira Holden is asked to save the world … again.
Nadira achieved legendary status when she gave her life to protect humans from the demons. To her, it was yesterday. To the rest of the world, it was twenty years ago.
People have made peace with the demons, worshipping them like celebrities. No one wants to believe that the beautiful creatures who brought magic to humans could be causing the disappearance of so many. When Nadira’s father goes missing, she refuses to play nice. Gloves off. She has to do what she does best. Fight.
Experience why not even death can stop her.

What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This is a fast-paced urban fantasy start to what I think will be a great series. The concept for this book is interesting and different from other books I have read. (I have not read a lot of urban fantasy so I am not sure how unique it really is).
I found myself being annoyed with Nadira sometimes but is technically is in her early 20s so some of the things that bothered me I guess are normal for that age. Also, you have to factor in that this girl has been dead for over 20 years then she is pulled into the present day. Anyone who lived in the early 1990’s knows how different things are and I can not imagine having to face all of that change at once. So the fact that the author showed her struggles I appreciated.
There was a point where I was very confused by the story and I actually went back and looked at the blurb to see if I really missed something. But I kept with it just to see where we were going with it and I am happy that I did. Things get explained later in the book you just have to wait for it.
I am interested to see what happens next now that we know everything that we do. This could get very interesting.
My Rating: /5
