Series: Gallows #1
19-year-old twin demon trackers Shaun and Sarah Gallows are used to running into trouble - mostly the kind with fangs - but while Sarah embraces her powers to their fullest extent, trusting her instincts implicitly, Shaun distances himself from his abilities and can do little more than despair at his sister’s reckless nature and idly back her up.
When they come across 17-year-old Melissa Carling, a demon tracker who’s been torturing innocent super-naturals, they know they have to stop her. Sarah is desperate to punish Melissa for what she’s been doing but Shaun’s instant attraction to the girl points to a soul-mate bond stronger than anything he’s ever had to fight before…
Given assignments, they find themselves in the middle of a mystery that involves a gorgeous redhead, blood bonds, and the possibility of soulmates. I did enjoy the action in this book. They had a lot to face and I didn't find it repetitive or boring as each new fight was usually against something new. Vampires were a big focus, but not the only evil thing that lurks in the world. As demon hunters they are superhuman in many ways with enhanced senses, they're also under the thumb of a higher power called the Council, which complicates things, but keeps the reader interested.
I love that it's set in Scotland and had to look up what the heck crisps were. The twins were wonderful as a team, and as individuals. How they face the changes in their personal lives affects not only one of them, but sometimes both of them in minor ways. Sarah especially will have some problems ahead. I did find that some of the subplots were drawn out and hindered the progression a bit, but this could be just me. The overall story was quite entertaining and the main storyline and characters were fun to get to know. Despite the twins claiming not to be human, they had some very human issues and emotions, which made them relatable.
