Review of Follow the Ashes by Kindra Sowder

What does it mean to be the Executioner? Is it the struggle
between good and evil, and the fulfillment of a Gypsy
legend?
For Robin, it’s simply another day in the park in downtown LA. It’s killing the undead as she attempts to juggle life and love the same as any other ordinary woman would. That is until she meets Gordon, a crazed demon with a conscience. Now she must battle an ancient evil far more powerful then she’s ever faced before, or risk losing
the world to Lilith, the mother of all vampires.
Will she save mankind? Or will we all follow the ashes of
destruction as we burn in Hell?
Just shy of a full 4 star
I really enjoyed the story line of Robin being a Hunter, Hunters are people chosen through out time who’s job it is to hunt down the monsters of the night ie Vampires while using her special gift and the fact she has Beth as her destined partner to help with potions, gathering information as well as her own gift was great. You get a pretty good back story through out the book of how the Hunters came to be and how Robin use to be well Robin until she was just referred to as Hunter by her prey after her special gift showed up that she is still trying to get a handle on as well as understand. The turning up of Lilith was great however this is where things start to drag a bit, the story continues well enough but I felt that things were a bit overly descriptive and at times repeated unnecessarily and Robin became a bit well soft (I just kind of expected a Hunter to be a bit bad ass outside of doing their job also I think). The fact I really wanted to know how things would end with Lilith as well as what the go was with Gordon kept me going and I am glad I did, the ending left me with wanting to know what happens next.
