#BookReview for Huntress (Life After #1) by @JulieGHall

Synopsis:  No one’s afterlife is as dispiriting as Audrey’s―at least that’s what she believes after waking up dead without her memories and being promptly assigned to hunt demons for the rest of eternity. 

She’s convinced God’s made a cosmic mistake; after all, she’d rather discuss the color of her nails than break them on angelic weapons.

It doesn’t help that her trainer, Logan, is as infuriating as he is attractive.

 And just when Audrey and Logan appear close to developing an amicable relationship, a decision made under duress pushes their hearts in a direction neither of them saw coming.

Despite her sub-par fighting abilities, an ancient weapon of unparalleled power chooses Audrey as its wielder, attracting the cautious gazes of her fellow hunters and the attention of Satan himself. 

With Satan’s eyes now fixed on Audrey, a battle for the safety of the living looms in the shadows.

About the Author:  Before writing her first novel Julie worked as a film publicist and rubbed elbows with the rich and famous . . . as in she would gently nudge them to let them know their meal had arrived during press interviews.

She now spends most of her "office hours" with her two furry writing buddies, Bear and Coco. Her daughter thinks that mommy's superpower is "sleeping all day," but that's because she's often awake until the wee hours of the morning weaving tales of adventure in worlds of her own creation. When asked in an interview what she wanted to be when she grew up, she's quoted to have answered, "to never have to grow up." 

She currently lives in Portland, Oregon with her four favorite people--her husband, daughter, and two fur babies (because dogs are people too).

My Review:  
This book was a breath of fresh air.  I really enjoyed how it portrayed the after life.  Ever wonder what happens to us after we die?  Audrey wakes up in the after life with no clue how she has passed. She is trust into an amazing adventure as she makes her way through the after life and is assigned her job as a huntress, a demon hunter.  Between training and learning about her new world she spends her days training and learning about her new world and role while making new friends and maybe something more.  
This book exceeded my expectations.  A beautiful created world along with amazing characters such a as Audrey and Logan.  Their character development in this book was amazing you can really see how much Audrey grows and learns throughout her journey and makes me very excited to pick up book two to continue with this amazing adventure.  This book takes a different spin on the angels vs demons books that I have previously read and I really enjoyed the direction this book is headed.  I will be picking up book two very soon! 

"Beautifully creative! Julie Hall expertly weaves an action-packed plot and swoon-worthy romance with powerful, heartfelt themes of love, family, forgiveness, and redemption. Huntress will have you contemplating your own afterlife while holding your breath and falling in love. I can't wait for the sequel!"
-Kelly Oram, author of The Supernaturals series

"In Audrey, Julie Hall has given readers a heroine who is strong, vulnerable, and relatable. And she has set her in a world so imaginative and exciting that I can't help but want to be there. This book creates a safe place to ask questions, but also shows us we will not always get the answers we want. The adventure is in moving ahead, in faith, even without them.
-Catherine Parks, author of A Christ-Centered Wedding 

"Huntress is absolutely charming, imaginative, and sweet. It is a fast-paced, original, and intriguing story. I hope it’s a series because I can’t wait to see what happens next.
-Susan Elllingburg, senior writer for Women Of Faith 

"Not since Frank Peretti has an author had the writing genius to weave together spiritual and physical worlds into a believable epic journey. Julie Hall is destined to be one of the great fiction writers of our time. Her first work will keep young adults riveted, expanding their sense of wonder and challenging them to think about forces and powers beyond what they can see.
-Rebecca Hagelin, columnist with The Washington Times; author of 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family 

"With fantastic world-building, Julie Hall has created an interesting and desirable afterlife. I love the unique take on angels, demons, and the life after death. Characters are likeable: Audrey, flawed and confused, but also filled with untapped strength; Logan, strong and swoon-worthy. Romance is sweet, mysterious, frustrating, and perfect. Enough action and mystery to keep me flipping the pages. Can't wait for Book Two." 
-Jaymin Eve, author of The Walker Saga and Supernatural Prison series
