The only thing worse than being a Hunter in the fae-ridden city of Harborsmouth, is hunting vamps in Bruges.

Being shipped off to Belgium sucks. The medieval city of Bruges is quaint, but the local Hunters’ Guild is understaffed, the canals are choked with dead bodies, and there’s no shortage of supernatural predators as likely suspects.

On second thought, maybe Bruges isn’t so bad after all.

With a desire to prove herself, protect the innocent, and advance within the ranks of the Hunters’ Guild, Jenna Lehane hits the cobbled streets of Bruges with blades at the ready. Someone, or something, is murdering tourists and dumping their bodies in the city’s scenic canals. With the help of a mysterious stranger, Jenna begins to piece together clues that are dotted throughout the city like blood spatter.

Determined to stop the killings, Jenna delves into a bloody local history that only raises more questions—but some secrets are best left buried. Jenna must put her combat training to the test as she struggles to unearth the truth about an ancient enemy.

Hunting in Bruges is the first novel in the Hunters’ Guild urban fantasy series set in the world of Ivy Granger.

***Amber – #NerdGirlAmbz’s  Review***
First off the me start of by saying, “Do NOT judge this book by its cover!” I am not a fan of the cover, but I am completely a fan of this story! I’ve read a lot of books about female supernatural hunters. I am for books of this nature. This book is full of action, deaths, supernatural creatures, and is perfect for the adult urban fantasy fan, and I for one, can NOT wait for the next installment. The author did an amazing job executing this story line and making sure your interest is not only kept, but exceeded!

Jenna Lehane is an American Hunter for the supernatural Hunter’s Guild, and has been since she was thirteen. She is sent to Bruges in Belgium to help out the Guild there when bodies start being found in the canals. She meets a man on the train that becomes her friend. Ash is very eccentric, funny, good looking, and actually pretty perfect character. It doesn’t take her long to realize that what she’s hunting is in fact vampires. Ultimately it is up to her to rid the city of this infestation with the help of some eccentric characters.

The author wrote this story from Jenna’s point of you. That made this story that more interesting to me. The dialog itself was beautifully written. In fact the entire story was executed perfectly. I can honestly say it’s now added to the list of one of my favorite book. Congrats E.J Stevens. Not only did you catch my attention, but you kept it and now I want more! Bravo! I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone who asked! A must read for sure!
