Huntress (Grace Murphy #1) by Nicole Hamlett
“Fate is an ugly bitch who will screw with your life every single chance she gets.”
Grace Murphy, a newly single mother finds this out as she’s trying to figure out how to lead a perfectly normal life. The big question becomes, what do you do when you find out that your mother is Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt and she expects you to take up the family business?
You can try hiding, but escaping when you have an ex-husband to deal with, a kid to raise and an unknown being who’s trying to kill you is tricky at best.
Now the woman who couldn’t put a bookshelf together without getting sweaty and perplexed must learn how to roar…without getting herself and everyone she loves killed.
Saving the world? Not a problem.
Getting home in time for chocolate chip pancakes might be a whole other matter, though…
Huntress (Grace Murphy #1) is the perfect example of the type I like to read. From the moment I started reading I couldn’t put it down. When I finished this one I immediately went to see if they were anymore in the series as this was subtitled: Grace Murphy Novel #1. I was rewarded in my diligence.
Huntress it’s the perfect balance of action, adventure, and character development. I like how she uses mythology as a backdrop for character development. If the next one is just as good as this one Grace Murphy may very well become one of my favorite literary characters.
She is smart and funny in a self-deprecating way. That simple fact makes her sexier than the author describes. It made me root for her all the more. I can’t wait to read the next adventure of Grace Murphy in Rifts (Grace Murphy #2).
I give Huntress (Grace Murphy #1) 5 out 5.
