Cassandra Archer is the Huntress. She has faithfully served the Earth Mother for years, rescuing kidnapped children from monsters -- both human and supernatural -- dwelling in the ruins of the Barrows District. But when two children are kidnapped under similar circumstances, all clues point to a cataclysmic event on the next dark moon. Now Cass must race against the clock and prevent a sacrifice that could destroy the entire town...

Mini-Review: I really enjoyed the idea of the Earth Mothers and the powers she gives to those who serve her. I also liked the Barrows District and how only those who knew about the horrors within could actually see it. There was a point in the middle where the pace slowed down a bit, but overall the pace was pretty steady. Cassandra was a great character. She was strong and fought for what was right. I also enjoyed the way she interacted and communicated with her pets. Flynn was a nice match for Cassandra. Michael intrigued me, and I can't wait to find out more about him in the next book. The cover model is a great depiction of Cassandra, and the blues give off a slightly creepy feel reminiscent of the Barrows. My favorite aspect of the cover is the snakes wrapped around her arm.

Plot: 4 Stars
Pace: 3 Stars
Characters: 3.5 Stars

Disclosure: I bought a copy of this novel for my own reading pleasure.
