I’m writing these words less than 24 hours after I finished reading book two in the Nava Katz series. The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting (or Sting for short) is way better than book one (which I loved). So, you know… read it, enjoy it and then quickly move on to Sting.
Sting picks up a few days (at the most in my opinion) after the first book ends. Nava is awaiting approval from Rasha headquarters to go on the mission in Prague and figure out once and for all if Samson King is a demon-who-should-be-dead (and do it). Naturally, Rohan is on her side, and Drio isn’t (or is he?). She’s still trying to figure out how to help Ari, her twin, to complete his Rasha induction, she’s still in her training period, and yes – she’s still quirky, superawesome Nava.
When the all clear is received for Prague, Rohan and Drio make it clear that she has to follow their instructions to the T, or else. Cue *giggle snort* riiiggghhhhtttttt!
Her Rabbi is pretty awesome, as it turns out, and will put her in touch with a doctor from Ben Gurion university (my sis went there hehe) and that’s an adventure in and of itself, for Nava.
So anyway, as things go (and don’t go) as planned, and they get closer to Samson, Nava realizes that while she pushed Rohan back to his music, she doesn’t like who he was back in those days.
Rohan, of course, told her that beforehand. He, himself, didn’t like Rohan in those days, but now that their mission is underway and progressing amazingly, he can’t turn the old Rohan off. He has to keep playing, keep pretending, and keep hurting Nava.
Nava (who’s mission name I’m keeping to myself at this point) will work on herself to let Rohan go. His past is just too much, and his Lightening Girl (first hit, Nava’s favorite song, his ultimate love interest, yada yada yada) is too sweet and perfect.
How the mission ends? How awesome Drio is? Will Nava be able to help Ari? What’s up with Rohan’s old flame? What’s up with Rohan? Where do Kane and Ari stand?
This and more (I imagine) in the next installment. A.K.A. – gimme the book already, Deb!
Ok, kidding – most of these questions are answered in Sting. Don’t worry.

50% boobs. 50% sarcasm. 100% new breed of hunter.
After a bumpy start as the only female demon hunter in the top secret Brotherhood of David, Nava Katz heads to Prague for her first undercover mission: unmasking a demon movie star. She’d be all kinds of thrilled if it weren’t for the fact that her fellow hunter-with-benefits, Rohan Mitra, has reclaimed his rock star status and assigned Nava the role of groupie.
Rejecting her “be a good girl and follow orders” directive, Nava unleashes an alter ego guaranteed to hook their celebrity target and drive Rohan crazy. No downside–until she finds herself up against Rohan’s past, the Brotherhood’s antiquated thinking, and her own identity issues, turning her personal life into the bomb that could blow up the entire operation.
Sparkly and deadly; it’s a plan.
