Tenna Massey hoped for a break after killing her possessed ex-husband, but the demons have other ideas. She thought her first Hunt was difficult; just wait until she sees what the demons have in store for her now. The latest attack on her points to someone she knows, causing her to doubt her relationships with her soul mate, Jason, and the rest of her newly adopted family.

While Tenna wades through all the new information, trying to learn whether one of her own has betrayed her, the entire family is on edge with the arrival of an enemy clan of Shifters, the same Shifters responsible for the slaughter of Jason’s entire family and tribe. Everything is hitting too close to home.

The closer Tenna gets to finding the demon doing everything it can to be the one to end the reign of the Huntress, the more she realizes it is, indeed, someone she loves. Sometimes the dead don’t stay dead.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Tenna lifted her dagger as her body swayed. She was going to lose this round, but she would go down fighting. And down she went when the man once again whipped the back of his closed fist across her face. It felt like the side of her head would explode from the impact.

She crumpled to the floor unable to hold herself up any longer. Focusing everything she had left she attempted to reach out with her energy. Maybe she could exert enough to stun them, just enough to give the women a chance to get out of the house. Surely the Shifters wouldn’t risk being seen by the snooty neighbors.

No matter how hard she tried Tenna couldn’t concentrate. Strangely, a new energy flowed through the room, reaching her with its cool tentacles. It was a familiar energy, something she had done a few times by accident. Tenna struggled to look up to the men just in time to see them all begin to sway. Their faces went slack, their eyelids lowered; they seemed like they were about to fall asleep where they stood.

Followed by this strange phenomenon came a new energy, only this one was physical. A new energy swam around that one until she could barely focus on anything else. These two new energies were angry, they were bloodthirsty. With half-opened eyes Tenna watched the colors and shapes swirl around her. She knew these energies as well as she knew her own. She had a moment to be grateful before the darkness swept her under.

3 Fangs
It’s been five months since the murder of Tenna Massey’s best friend, Claire, and surrogate family members.  Her demon possessed husband being the perpetrator.  Tenna is apparently the prophesied demon huntress, although most times she doesn’t feel like one, and struggles with her confidence in this regard.  She is The Huntress, the second point in the triad of hunters and is supposed to stop the demons on earth.  However, she has had little training in just what that means.  Tenna killed her husband, releasing the demon who murdered her friends/family and has put together another family of sorts, including her boyfriend, Jason, a skinwalker.  Her  family now also includes Russell, who is like a brother to her, and Stacy, who has the ability to read thoughts.  Tenna and Stacy are attacked by a group of shifters working with a demon.   No one can understand why shifters would be working with a demon, or why they would want to kill the Huntress.  Everyone wants to protect Tenna because if the demons win, humanity dies.  It starts to look like Tenna has been betrayed by someone in her own family.  The hunt is on and, along the way, the demon gets very, very close to Tenna, close enough to hurt people she cares for.  It was difficult to engage with the characters in this book.  There was a lot of internal struggle, with Tenna flip flopping between arrogance and no confidence in her abilities.  The concept was good, but I thought there could have been a lot more depth to the characters.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: CL Parks has had a passion for writing since reading Charlotte’s Web in kindergarten. After rewriting the ending to gift Charlotte with immortal life she became obsessed. Her tastes quickly moved from sweet and innocent to the supernatural after reading Stephen King in fifth grade. Since the moment she picked up Pet Semetary she devoured every supernatural and preternatural book she could get her hands on by authors ranging from Anne Rice to Stephanie Rowe.

When not fully engulfed in the latest release or typing away at her newest novel you can find her corralling her chickens, playing with her dogs, spoiling her large lizard or sewing a new vintage inspired dress. Her dream is to travel the country in an RV with her husband while writing more books…after the kids have gone on to college, of course.
