A Cat's Chance in Hell Book Review

If the Demon Master gets his way the City is about to become Hell on Earth.

Gabi has some extraordinary talents. Some might call them supernatural, but for her they're just part of everyday life. What she knows about the supernatural would give most humans nightmares forever. Ridding the streets of bad-ass creatures of the night is Gabi's other job. Taking up the mantle of her father's legacy, she is a Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. The first female ever bestowed the title. Her day job is a little less dangerous. Most of the time.

Being ambushed and kidnapped by the sexy Master Vampire of the City should have been just another night on the job, except for the fact that Julius has other plans for her. When he reveals that his nemesis wants control of the city and has plans to fill it with Demons of the Etherworld, creating an army of Ghouls and turning humans into nothing more than cattle to feed his Clan, Gabi must choose her path. She must decide whether to join with Julius in a stand against the Demon Master or flee the City with her friends and family, leaving the Vampires to wage their own war and the rest of the residents to their own fate.

But it's not in Gabi's nature to back down from a fight, no matter how impossible the odds. As the Malus Venatori prepare for war, Gabi finds herself pulled deeper into Julius's world and she makes some disturbing discoveries about her unusual supernatural abilities. Her existence might just be the answer to a mystery as old as the vampire race. Even more unsettling than that is her undeniable attraction to Julius and the taste of his blood. But before she can come to terms with her conflicting desires they must all survive the Demon onslaught and find a way to safeguard the truth of her heritage.

While the supernatural bad guys know her as Angeli Morte, her friends call her Hellcat. If you like your heroine smart, sassy and absolutely kick ass and your vampire  hero sexy as sin and twice as dangerous you're going to love the Hellcat series. Contains adult content.

Wow, what a great story. I have to say that my favorite female lead character right now is Gabi. I love her fearless attitude and her fearless loyalty to those she loves. She's like any other woman who's sensitive but doesn't let anyone push her around or take advantage of her.

I love it when I read a supernatural story that has a different take on the supernatural. I'm sure there are other books out there similar to this one but this is the first I've read of its kind and I'm happy about that. Gabi is a human with supernatural powers. Her powers are vampire like but she's no vampire. She has great senses, natural and beyond. She can control and communicate with animal telepathically. She super swift and has an array of martial arts skills under her belt.

This story takes on a ride of good versus evil. Gabi works with an organization that fights evil or rogue supernatural creatures. In order to save the city of total destruction, Gabi must team up with the most of unlikely supernatural being she'd ever thought she'd team up with, vampires. Unless there's a rogue vampire that needs destroying, they are likely left a lone. In working with the vampires, Gabi falls for a Vampire Master, Julius. Yum...

As the ending neared, I found myself crying and rooting for Gabi and her team. While I was excited through out the story and knew the ride was great, the ending stopped me short. The story just ended abruptly. Perhaps a cliffhanger since this is part of a series? I'm not sure. I do hope that the second book resolves something that I wanted resolved. All in all, this is a story that was wonderful. It had adventure, awesome fight scenes, a great, strong female lead character, swoon worthy men, and worthy adversaries.

Do I recommend this book? I do. If you like the supernatural and want something a bit different, I do.
