#BookReview: The Last Huntress (Mirror Realm #1) by @LenoreBorja

Synopsis: Alice Daniels has a problem. Her reflection keeps misbehaving when she looks in the mirror--and the longer she ignores it, the harder it tries to get her attention. On her eighteenth birthday, she learns why: she is a huntress, someone gifted with the power to enter mirrors and the magical world that exists beyond. But with this power comes immense responsibility, for in the Mirror Realm lurks an evil that has infected the human race for centuries: demons. It is up to her and her three huntress sisters--with the help of one handsome and overbearing protector--to hunt and banish this evil one demon at a time, thereby keeping the chaos in check. But when an ancient god pays Alice a visit that turns deadly, it is clear the Mirror Realm is more than it seems, and she soon finds herself in a race against time to save the life--and soul--of the one man the gods are determined to never let her have.

The Last Huntress is a story of redemption and sacrifice, the bonds of true sisterhood, and the impossible, sometimes frightening, things we'll do for love.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: Fair warning this has a romance that is insta-love but for this story I think it worked out well.  I will say that this reminded me of a lot of old shows I used to watch I think back in the late 90's and early 2000's. Like Buffy and Charmed and the like.  I loved the female power this book had but overall it wasn't anything new.  It was still worth the read though.  Great pacing and a wonderful cast. 


“Borja’s series opener radiates the youthful, sisterly glow of classic TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed. . . . Strong characters remain the focus in this confident, imaginative fantasy.”

“This book is Percy Jackson meets Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants with a sprinkling of Charlie's Angels in an edge-of-your-seat YA urban fantasy ride. Lenore's cinematic writing creates such a suspenseful tone—I was completely sucked in and the pages turned themselves!”
