Demon Trackers (The Anointed, Book One) by C.C. James

Review: Well, having worked in a similar though (mostly) non-paranormal profession that involved hunting down bad guys, with a book like this I tend to look toward action scenes to see if they fit what really can happen in the field. Descriptions were good and are easily visualized for those who may never have been in such situations before, but when you have been, however, details such as presented in “Demon Trackers” slow down what passes in milliseconds. You just don’t get all of that, but then how many of the readers of this genre might have been out at three in the morning tracking an escaped felon?

At times, the dialogue seemed abrupt and awkward to me and since that did comprise a lot of the story, I felt the flow of the tale was interrupted. I would have appreciated more of a balance between it and narrative where background or crucial information might have been explained or shown instead of being told. Considering the main characters age, they are well represented, though I questioned why they were so young but maybe there is a reason that will be answered later in the series. Overall, The Anointed and its Demon Trackers are an interesting premise that leaves plenty of room for expansion.

Description: “Being half human isn’t so bad for demon tracker brothers Jake and Cal, especially when their job is keeping unknowing humans safe from every monster and evil thing that crawls out of Hell. So what if the full-blooded Anointed don’t think they’re up for the task? Jake and Cal have lives to save and beasties to kill and lack of sleep, lack of weapons, and lack of trust from the haughty Anointed demon slayers won’t keep them from it. ”
