Author: Paige Cuccaro

Release Date: December 2011
Genre:Fiction- Adult- Urban Fantasy
Emma Jane Hellsbane just found out she’s not human—or, at least, not only human. She’s half angel, too, and now Heaven’s got a job for her: round up all the Fallen angels and their red-skinned, horned devil-demon minions and boot their butts back into the abyss. Only problem? The demons and their Fallen masters fight back…and they don’t fight fair.
Luckily for Emma, she can put a stop to the constant threat of having her head hacked off if she figures out which Fallen angel is her father—and then kill him before he kills her. Of course, in the meantime, she’ll have to avoid accidentally seducing her angelic mentor, help an old friend conquer his own Fallen sperm donor, and basically save the world from a cataclysmic divine smack down.
No one said being Heaven’s bounty hunter would be easy. But with a name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was born for the job.
Review: I'm not usually a big fan of angels. Don't ask why I'm just not, but there was something about this book that caught my attention.
While yes it does have it's share of haughtier than thou angels. Emma and her witty repartee make up for it. I loved seeing Emma evolve into a kick butt, character. As well as unraveling the mystery along with everything else.
I actually enjoyed all the mythos, wrapped into the story. It gave it creditability, even though you knew it was fiction. I just wish the romance aspect had panned out, but with UF it's always a craps shoot. I still liked this story and really enjoyed reading it.
