    2. Anointed by Maggie Mae Gallagher is the first book in her Urban Fantasy series, The Cantati Chronicles The story is set in Europe with time travel, multi dimensions, demons, Fae and witches The world building is intriguing, extensive and very easy to grasp quickly Alana Devereaux is a Cantati demon slayer, also trained as a witch, who is sent back in time by her father to save humankind from elimination by the demons who have overrun the earth She finds that another, Gaelan, a Fae prince is also [...]


    3. So I liked the idea and premise behind the book Alana is a demon slayer which is pretty rad, and she is sent back to save human kind because the end of the world is quickly approaching I d say this book had top notch world building but struggled with character development I had a hard time connecting as a reader and really getting invested in what happened to them I did like the MC though Alana is not perfect which makes me like her all the appealing She has faults and recognizes them but the m [...]


    4. Alana doesn t seem to be capable of following orders which is not great for a Lieutenant in a demon war You don t get to ignore orders just because your father is General Actually she s not very good at her job overall She skipped all her field training and she wanders about dumbly wondering where she can find books in LondonI hate this idiot She was the one who wasn t careful enough about getting followed and led the demons to their fortified hideout which is about to fall thanks to her stupidi [...]

    6. The cover grabbed my attention straight away when I saw this in the Netgalley catalogue You should know by now that I like a good cover Then comes the story Well I read books for the romance aspect and it took a little too long, in my opinion, for anything even slightly romantic to happen Yeah, I get she s on a mission to save the world and everything but surely she s allowed a little fun Nevertheless, when it did happen Phew It was scorching The attraction between Alana and Gaelen was hot from [...]


    7. Rating 3 out of 5.Alana Devereaux, a demon slayer, is sent back in time to save humankind The end of the world as we know it, otherwise known as Mutari is fast approaching With the help of unlikely allies Alana races against time to save the world.I liked the fantasy setting and the concept The characters however, fell a bit flat for me I found that I wasn t able to really care for the main character and I definitely did not like the potential hero.Nevertheless, it was a nice debut Urban Fantasy [...]


    8. First of all, extra star for originality in some parts There was a lot going on here, many genres were mixing which could have ended in catastrophe and mass confusion, but they blended and did so rather well in my opinion The majority was fantasy, but then there are some sci fi elements mixed in, like the futuristic and time travel bits There are also demons aplenty along with witchcraft and magic, which adds a touch of the supernatural All was nicely rounded off with the main part of the storyl [...]


    9. Alana Devereaux is a demon slayer, and as her world is crashing down, she is sent back in time to save humankind The problem is she arrives later in time than she should she tries to find her way around and find a way to avoid the Murati She mets Gaelen, who has an agenda of his own and whom she cannot really trust.In the beginning is the story a bit slow, to find a way into the world and into the different characters this changes after a third and from that moment on the story develops faster a [...]



    10.

    11. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review really needs a half star rating Three seems too high, but two seems to lowI had a lot of issues with this book, mainly its characters Our heroine, Alana, is all badass and we re told right from the beginning that she can outfight just about any man in her society Yet, when our love interest comes along, suddenly she s helpless and overpowered, and her clothes come off If you re going to have a kickass female lead, make her consistent Don t [...]


    12. 3.5 sI did like the idea behind this book and it promised to be awesome and whilst I did enjoy it it was lacking something that would have made it hit the spot It had mostly everything you could want in a darker UF the characters were good, I like strong capable women and Alana was all that, she was a warrior doing her best after being thrust back in time with the fate of humanity in her hands, she came across quite detached from everything and it was sort of hard to connect to her, she was very [...]

    18. I received this book in exchange for an honest review I was excited by the idea of an awesome heroine that kicks ass, an interesting plot with demons, lots of action and of course some romance thrown in During the first couple chapters of the book, there is very little background to the world and what has happened that demons have taken over the world You get introduced to Alana and the major conflict of the story But the little background that you get just ends up leaving you with tons of quest [...]

    21. I received Anointed from the publisher for an honest review in return Upon first reading the official blurb, I was skeptical about this series I assumed it would be just like any other urban fantasy I ve read before I have never been so wrong life It s not often that I find a new series from an author that I am not previous acquainted with that I ve fallen in love with after the first few chapters This fresh take on a post apocalyptic world will leave you wanting This book pulls you in from Cha [...]

    23. I was captured by this book almost from page one, it was non stop action, tragedy, honor, and every emotion you could imagine, then the author slowed things down and left them that way for the great majority of this book.While I enjoyed the overarching story immensely I did not feel like I got everything out of the book I should have, the ending was kinda meh considering the world was supposed to end I am still not sure exactly where we are on that plotline.The hero was so secretive and the hero [...]


    24. First off the way the story started was good It was full of action and I was able to read the first couple chapters quickly However at times it was hard for me to follow along and stay interested at the lack of development There are times where the author becomes verbose in an explanation, which at times ends up sounding like a rant, and doesn t provide the details needed to bring the scene to life Alana becomes to angry and too bitchy for my taste and even though towards the end you get a glimp [...]


    25. I received a copy of this book from a giveaway for reviewing purposes.3.5 Stars A good fun start to a new series I found the concept for this book interesting That along with the cover had the book sold as a must read for me I was expecting a kick ass heroine who the world depended on for it s survival, which I did get but she came across overly whiny, at times, when facing certain situations or her flaws I found myself intrigued with Gaelen than with Alana I believe this was due to all the mys [...]


    26. I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The first this about this book that caught my eye was the cover if a book doesn t have an interesting or awesome cover I m likely to pass over it After reading the blurb I knew this was my kind of book.I loved this story I thought it was great, I loved the concept however I had a hard time really getting drawn in to the story as much as I enjoyed the book the writing was not as smooth as I would have liked Normally when I read [...]


    27. Awesome Everything about this book was great Not that I would like to see the world destroyed by demons, but what an amazing story I felt like it just kept building and building The anticipation was killing me I couldn t wait to see how it was all going to play out, and it was worth the wait I would think I had something figured out, but there would be some surprise that ruined any theories I had Thank goodness too, because what happens is far better than what I thought was going to happen I rea [...]


    28. Anointed by Maggie Mae GallagherA world on the brink of disaster with the heroine in charge of saving the world No small task In fact it s a gargantuan task A complex novel with a sometimes confusing vast array of demons and villains The depth of detail and world building for this first novel by Maggie Mae Gallagher is amazingly complex and interesting It s clear this world will continue in future books I didn t need to know about the various races of demons and their particular habits But that [...]
