drey's thoughts:
I picked up The Iron Hunt because I'd heard quite a bit about it--all good, of course. I love the cover--yes, there's a chick with tattoos, but in this case, the tattoos actually serve a purpose. Of course, the chick is the heroine, and her name is Maxine.

Apparently, Maxine is the latest (and last?) of a line of demon hunters--each born to the previous, each inheriting the mantle upon their mother's death. And those tattoos? They're her armor, rendering her invincible during the day. At night, they're tricky little demons who will stop at nothing to protect her. With an appetite for anything from Snickers bars to teddy bear stuffing, the five are entertaining little buggers.

Marjorie Liu's The Iron Hunt is a fast-paced read, with a world full of demons and zombies and other bad things that go bump in the night. Not that it's all about Maxine and those she hunts. There's the boyfriend who has a penchant for song, a zombie queen who manipulates everyone she can, and a few new "friends" who're there to help her in the upcoming apocalyptic battle for the souls of humanity.

With an interesting backstory and potential for a really gripping rest-of-the-story, I will definitely be picking up the other books in the series.
