Title: Within the Darkest Hollows
Series: Demon Hunters #2
Author: D.A. Roach
Genre: YA Paranormal
Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…
A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.
She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…
Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.
The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…
Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.
Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?
As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…
D.A. Roach killed it in Within the Darkest Hollows. She grabbed YA Paranormal and stomped on anything that preceded it. This is such an action packed, dramatic realm that she has created. The story makes you feel as if you were with the characters, talking, laughing, and battling right alongside of them.
This book is so interesting. It is a series like no other. We have YA and we have Paranormal....your typical vampires and werewolves. And then we have demons, demon hunters, mystical creatures, witches and humans .. all co-existing. Exciting, right? I'm telling you that Mrs. Roach has touched upon a whole different level of awesomeness with this series. I loved each and every second.
The way that Cassidy has to protect and care for Killian in his time of need is great. Even though they are in the human world, the mortal and demon realms find their way to them. Killian has something that is treasured and wanted, although this is also what protects him. Cassidy will stop at nothing to ensure his safety. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Serena is there to help as best as she can, with masking powers and helping Killian heal. Many, many surprises rear their little heads throughout this book. Transferring magic and hot power being one of them. I thought that was just way too cool!
Be sure to pick up a copy of Within the Darkest Hollows and meet the wonderful muses that live inside D.A. Roach's head. Between the Bleeding Willows is the first in the Demon Hunters series. You'll want to pick that one up as well.

“For a YA paranormal, this series is superb. Personally I usually want/need that 'adult' edge - however this series really doesn't need it.” - 5 Star Hashtag Minxes Love Books

D.A. Roach has been telling stories since she was a young girl in the suburbs of Chicago. In college she met the man of her dreams, her happily ever after, and married him 2 weeks after graduating. They have 3 kids together and a pet cockatiel named Gimli. D.A. did not find a love for books until after college. Her parents were immigrants from Lithuania and found tv and radio easier ways to hear stories so they did not do much reading or encourage it. But once she finished college and D.A. had free time, she discovered how amazing it was to get lost in a story. D.A. is a full time mom and wife. When she is not doing domestic things (laundry, bills, etc) she is writing, reading, creating mixed media art, and helping beautify her kids' school landscape. Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Sylvia Day. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.
