تأملات فى الحب والحياة - مصطفى محمود *ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

4/5 Stars

When I started this book I didn't expect it to be good. I was hopeful it would at least be ok. The author made me eat my thoughts. This book was definitely good. It's a pity it was only a short story. I wouldn't mind more to read!

Kerilyn



Kerilyn has been raised as a demon huntress. Her family drilled into her that spirits and demons are to be killed without remorse because they are monsters who pray on innocent humans. Halloween is a night of fear and hiding because the monsters run more freely that night. But Kerilyn has a secret. The man she's been obsessed with since she was a teenager, the man who visits her every Halloween night for the last 9 years is not only the enemy but he is the king of the spirits realm.

Arawn



Arawn is the king of the spirits realm, only brother to Abbadon king of the demons realm, and by all means he should hate the sight of every hunter but for nine years he's been obsessed with a huntress who seems to think him responsible for everything bad that's ever happened to her and her family. For her he would do anything, all he asks is that she trusts him.

Kerilyn has never given Arawn the chance to prove to her whether he would harm her or not and given the fact that she would be gambling her life it seems logical. But when she needs his help she has no choice. She can either trust him to help her or lose the last important person in her life.



This book was surprisingly well written and the story was interesting although it was pretty standard for Paranormal romance. "Misguided but good girl hunting misunderstood baddies, good girl falling for wicked bad lord, ancient bad lord falling for good girl". We've seen it before. What I liked about the book was the fact that in the end you didn't get the feeling that Arawn was a marshmallow deep inside. The guy was borderline evil and our heroine liked him regardless.

I didn't like Kerilyn all that much I have to admit. She wasn't a bad heroine, she just wasn't original enough or interesting enough to make an impression.

I wonder if there will be more books? It's definitely something that would be interesting in a larger book.
