Product Description

At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

A delightful, fast paced, story that pulls you in. Characters are real and believeable. A good plot, with several subplots, which made it feel even more real. At no point did I feel that I was reading a book. This author submersed the reader into the story and did not let off until the end. I couldn't get enough. Thanks for making it so addictive to read, D.A. Roach, that I stayed up all night to finish. That's saying a lot for your work! Bravo. My only complaint about the book is I need more Demon Hunters and the rest of the story. I hope book 2 is in the works and available to your followers soon. A great book that I recommend for anyone you enjoys a little action and suspense with their romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of holes under trees, you just may end up in a demons med unit Feb. 15 2017
By Valerie Roberson - Published on

I was hooked on this book with the first sentence. I love ghost, paranormal, mystery, fantasy stories. I have never read D. A. Roach's work before, but she is something else, in a good way. She had me at first believing that this could be a true to life story. Until Cassidy fell down the hole, then I thought of Alice in Wonderland. It kind of turned out like that, but in a demon/demon hunter way. The story grew more mystery as you read on and full of surprises. But the twists and turns are the best part. I found that they kept me guessing what's next at every turn.
Cassidy is all alone, her Mom died giving birth to her, her boyfriend died in an car accident and her Gram passed just recently from a heart attack. She has no idea who her father is, just that he gave her Mother a special ring to show his love just before he left her.
One day Cassidy went to an old abandoned cemetery to see if she can see her boyfriend. She did and chased after him and ended up falling into a very deep hole, that seemed to go on forever. When she woke, days later, she was not in Kansas any more. She healed from a guys tattoo and was now bonded to him.
As she got to know the clan and how they lived, she didn't want to leave. But the head of the clan told her that it wasn't safe for her there, that there was something big coming. Cassidy wanted to learn to fight and stand with the clan. She ended up back at home.
There is so much more to this story. You have a demon queen, a human (?) indebted to her and tries to use Cassidy as payoff. His son bonds with Cassidy to save her life and her other bond breaks. Things go terribly wrong and then before you know it you hit "to be continued". Trust me you are going to want book 2 asap!
If book 2 is anything like this one, I won't be able to put it down either. D. A. Rouch has an fantastic story line going here and it makes you want more. Her writing is steady and she keeps you glued to the book. This a must read to add to your to be read list.

3.0 out of 5 stars First in a new series Oct. 21 2016
By JBJNYG - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cassidy Ravanaugh has had a tough life. At only eighteen years of age, she has already lost her mother, boyfriend Jace, and grandmother. However, she discovers that Jace may not truly be gone. While searching for her ring which had been with Jace when he died, Cassidy stumbles through a gate to the unknown. It turns out to be the gate to the Demon Realm, and she meets Killian, head of the Demon hunters, preparing for battle. Neither understands how Cassidy was able to cross into his realm, but she and her ring are key parts of the battle for mankind’s survival.

This is the first book in the “Demon Hunters” series, and it is the author’s first paranormal tale. I have not read too many books pertaining to Demon Hunters, so I was a bit confused with some of the terminology. There were also some minor editing issues. However, neither of those stopped me from enjoying the story overall. It does not contain the typical happily-ever-after ending, but it does pave the way for a sequel. The story is told from two points of view, that of Cassidy and Killian. It is a struggle between good versus evil, and there is solid character growth in the strong heroine. Fans of books such as the “Mortal Instrument” series are likely to enjoy this book. The cover is a great complement to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob @ Platypire Reviews Aug. 22 2016

*A fan of the author won an auction for an honest review from me. I purchased this book on my own as it was already on my wish list, so take it as you like*

It only took me a few hours to read this. Why? Because I simply could NOT put it down! It's been a while since I got this sucked into a book. I liked the characters, I felt the flow and pace were good, and I got a new book boyfriend to boot! I really like the imagery she put out there of the different worlds and the way the tattoos and magic reacted in different situations, and I cannot WAIT for the next one. I've decided the lady who won the review and said this is what I was going to be reading should be my best friend now. Unless she wants Killian....

Bob says: 5 Platypires and another for my favorites of 2016 list!
5.0 out of 5 stars You need this book!! Feb. 22 2017
By Lydia - HEA Bookshelf | MBMB - Published on

Oh my gosh!!!!! DA Roach hooked me instantly with this book. So, so, SO GOOD!! I LOVE reading YA Paranormal books with just the right amount of romance intertwined to keep me hoping something more will happen, and let me just say: this is IT.

My heart was sad right off the bat and I feared this would be one of those books where the HEA was doomed from the very beginning... But then, things turned around and got very promising.

Enter Killian.
Hello, Mr. Delicious!!!! Broody, mysterious, powerful, tattooed, protective....and did I mention, dee-lee-cious?! Oh, yes! He was the leader of his clan (they were demon hunters) and let me tell you, he was a leader through and through, and a sexy one at that. He'd stayed away from love or even the idea of it because he'd always put his clan first. Their safety was his one priority and always would be.

Or would it, now...?

Cassidy had lost her boyfriend of four years to a car accident. Then, her grandmother who raised her passed away suddenly too. Talk about kicking a girl when she's down! She was left all alone, feeling beyond lost. Needing to find the one thing that would connect her to Jace, her mother's ring she'd given him, she one day headed to the scene of the accident hoping to find it there. That day changed everything for Cassidy. She found more than a ring. She met Killian and was introduced to this whole other world that she'd always been interested in, but never really knew actually existed!

Killian and Cassidy.
Man, oh man.
Their chemistry sizzled and it went beyond the bond they shared in order for Killian to save her life. (I mean, there ARE worse things in life than being bonded to one of the hottest guys EVER, but that's besides the point. Lol!) It was funny reading scenes where Killian would get jealous of Casper, one of the clan members that was assigned -- by Killian, mind you -- to protect Cassidy. I probably had the biggest grin on my face while reading at this point.

Okay, let me explain. Cassidy and Killian shared a tattoo (they were bonded through that tattoo) and every time Killian would feel anger or jealousy because of Casper, their tattoos would light up and sting. Now, at first Cassidy did not know who she was bonded with (Killian kept her at arm's length), only that she was bonded to someone in the clan in order to keep her from dying from injuries she had sustained. So when her tattoo would out of nowhere hurt, it was pretty comical because it would ALWAYS happen when her and Casper were hanging out and maybe getting a bit too close. And it just so happened that Killian would be near by SEEING THAT. Oh, hmm.

Anyway, so much happened between the pages of this book. I fear that I can easily get carried away and spill the beans on everything, so I will stop here. I will say that there was drama, action, little surprises thrown into the mix...and then, we also got the INEVITABLE romance brewing between Killian and Cassidy. If you love YA PNR books, do yourself a favor and get this book. I promise you will enjoy it!! I can't wait to start book 2!! FIVE STARS.
5.0 out of 5 stars A MAJOR HIT! March 5 2016
By Kimberly Vanderbloom - Published on

I was given an advanced reading copy in exchange for a honest review.

I have been doing a countdown for this book to release. I've read the synopsis and saw the teasers. The anticipation was going to kill me. I was given the opportunity to get my hands on a early copy and I had to sweep it up. I admired the cover because it is gorgeous. I can't get over the title. Between the Bleeding Willows. There is something special about willows trees for me. Since I was a little girl they always represented magic and reading. I couldn't wait to crack it up.

Once I cracked it open I got to met the main character Cassidy. The first paragraph got me hooked and I knew I was in for a adventure. The story was well paced and had twists and turns. The ending will leave you with a bit of cliffhanger which I think I have figured out. I was in love with her right away. I had tears in my eyes within the first few chapters. I instantly felt connected to her. She is a complex character and you get to enjoy the raw emotions she experiences. It will pull on strings. A little bit later we met Killian. Now for everyone out there he is my new book boyfriend and you can't have him. He is dark, mysterious, and thoughtful demon hunter. He makes the perfect man for me. He is also a bit complex because he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. It was interesting to get his point of view and Cassidy as well. I loved all the secondary characters with Casper being my favorite because of his love for books. Now my favorite moment was when Cassidy kissed Casper. It was hilarious and well planned.

Overall I fell in love with the series and plan on reading every book that comes out. It is written by a author who is a master storyteller. If you enjoy magic, love, heart break, courage, selflessness,tenderness and unforgettable characters then I would recommend this book for you.
