Review - Eleonore by Faith Rivens

Eleonore is the debut novella from Faith Rivens and I was lucky enough to be given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t read a great deal of Urban Fantasy as I usually prefer to explore secondary worlds but I’m glad I took a chance on this.

Eleonore is the story of a young woman, part-time librarian by day, demon-hunter by night. When an otherworldly bounty is taken out on her, potentially putting her son at risk, she knows she needs to track down whoever wants her dead and take the fight to them. A kick-ass heroine, she is utterly devoted to her son. I really enjoyed the fact that she’s a mother and that her son comes first to her in everything.

The characters are well defined and interesting enough that I would happily read more about them – and I hope to see more of Raphael in future stories. There were lots of hints at a wider world with more stories to be explored; the author has many options for further stories in this world that she has created.

I can’t say too much more without the risk of spoilers so I’ll leave you with this – if you enjoy urban fantasy, you should absolutely give Eleonore a try. I’m looking forward to further books from this author.
