The Venators: Magic Unleashed and Promises Forged by Devri Walls

I haven't gotten a chance to read book two, but this first book I flew right through!

This was a fantastic book for me to dive into for this author! I am officially a HUGE fan. I was completely enthralled and I could not put this down. I swear I am HOOKED GUYS. As soon as I write this up I plan to go dive into my ARC of book two. I fell for these characters. I was absolutely in love with them. We meet an absolute ton of them in this book, but I honestly had no issue staying with who we were talking with as they changed. The plots were also a big thing for me. I loved the fact that the fighting scenes were on POINT. They were fast and fun and also not crazy to follow. I could picture it like a movie I was watching and it was fantastic. I was left with a TON of questions and I cannot wait to finish book two and see where it leads!

Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities. Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It's an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping. By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators. Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council.
