by D.A. Roach
The Demon Hunter Series Book 1
YA Paranormal Romance

— SYNOPSIS — At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…
At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.


Oh my gosh!!!!! DA Roach hooked me instantly with this book. So, so, SO GOOD!! I LOVE reading YA Paranormal books with just the right amount of romance intertwined to keep me hoping something more will happen, and let me just say: this is IT. 

My heart was sad right off the bat and I feared this would be one of those books where the HEA was doomed from the very beginning... But then, things turned around and got very promising. 

Enter Killian. 
Hello, Mr. Delicious!!!! Broody, mysterious, powerful, tattooed, protective....and did I mention, dee-lee-cious?! Oh, yes! He was the leader of his clan (they were demon hunters) and let me tell you, he was a leader through and through, and a sexy one at that. He'd stayed away from love or even the idea of it because he'd always put his clan first. Their safety was his one priority and always would be. 

Or would it, now...?

Cassidy had lost her boyfriend of four years to a car accident. Then, her grandmother who raised her passed away suddenly too. Talk about kicking a girl when she's down! She was left all alone, feeling beyond lost. Needing to find the one thing that would connect her to Jace, her mother's ring she'd given him, she one day headed to the scene of the accident hoping to find it there. That day changed everything for Cassidy. She found more than a ring. She met Killian and was introduced to this whole other world that she'd always been interested in, but never really knew actually existed! 

Killian and Cassidy. 
Man, oh man. 
Their chemistry sizzled and it went beyond the bond they shared in order for Killian to save her life. (I mean, there ARE worse things in life than being bonded to one of the hottest guys EVER, but that's besides the point. Lol!) It was funny reading scenes where Killian would get jealous of Casper, one of the clan members that was assigned -- by Killian, mind you -- to protect Cassidy. I probably had the biggest grin on my face while reading at this point.

Okay, let me explain. Cassidy and Killian shared a tattoo (they were bonded through that tattoo) and every time Killian would feel anger or jealousy because of Casper, their tattoos would light up and sting. Now, at first Cassidy did not know who she was bonded with (Killian kept her at arm's length), only that she was bonded to someone in the clan in order to keep her from dying from injuries she had sustained. So when her tattoo would out of nowhere hurt, it was pretty comical because it would ALWAYS happen when her and Casper were hanging out and maybe getting a bit too close. And it just so happened that Killian would be near by SEEING THAT. Oh, hmm. 

Anyway, so much happened between the pages of this book. I fear that I can easily get carried away and spill the beans on everything, so I will stop here. I will say that there was drama, action, little surprises thrown into the mix...and then, we also got the INEVITABLE romance brewing between Killian and Cassidy. If you love YA PNR books, do yourself a favor and get this book. I promise you will enjoy it!! I can't wait to start book 2!! FIVE STARS.

The Demon Hunter Series Book 2
YA Paranormal Romance

Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…


This book--OMG. I LOVED book 1, but this one? Holy hell, I adored it. Both books must be read in order as they are NOT stand alone novels. That said, is book 3 ready yet? Oh my!!!! I NEED it...pronto! 

This book picks up right where the first one left off and is in many ways darker and has more action and drama. Heck, there's even more steam in some scenes. The characters go through SO much that they are, in a way, forced to grow. Poor Cassidy!!!!! Being held captive like she was?? It was heartbreaking to read. Very well written, though! I felt for her. I wanted to hug her and tell her that Killian would save her! Speaking of Killian.... I sure do love him! So protective and all kinds of delicious!!!!! 

“Cassidy Kavanaugh, what have you done to me?” I whispered as I looked down at the girl who had found a way into my heart, and each day, managed to impress me with all that she was.

Oh man!!!! I sure was grinning towards the end of this book!! Well, where Killian and Cassidy's romance is concerned because the ACTUAL ending left me anxious and in desperate need for book 3!! To say I am curious to see how Tyler's side of this epic story unfolds is an understatement!! Seeing the new side of's HOT, but I'm nervous! Especially with how the book ended--OMG!!!! 

A MUST READ!! Five amazing and addictive stars!!!

They have 3 kids together and a pet cockatiel named Gimli. D.A. did not find a love for books until after college. Her parents were immigrants from Lithuania and found tv and radio easier ways to hear stories so they did not do much reading or encourage it. But once she finished college and D.A. had free time, she discovered how amazing it was to get lost in a story.

Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Sylvia Day. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.
