I picked this book only because I loved Marjorie M. Liu's Crimson City novel. Other than the Crimson City book, I knew nothing about Liu's work. Well, I'm very glad I gave The Iron Hunt a listen. Liu, unlike a lot of the women currently dominating the fantasy genre actually created a paranormal heroine that wasn't a vampire or a werewolf. I have no idea how that happened, since it seems like vampires and werewolves are almost all that gets published anymore in the paranormal genre.
Liu's heroine has tattoos of demons on her body that come to life and fight for her as well as protect her so that she can do her job as a hunter and executioner of demons that have escaped an extra-dimentional jail. Of course, these abilities comes with a price that will eventually have to be paid when she has a daughter.
There are a lot of interesting characters and things in Liu's novel, which is obviously the start of another paranormal series starring another tough, hard case, smart mouthed, female. While that in and of itself isn't anything new, the rest of The Iron Hunt is refreshingly different. I look forward to the next book.

If you could sum up The Iron Hunt in three words, what would they be?
Chick Kicks Butt!
What other book might you compare The Iron Hunt to and why?
Anthony Francis Dakota Frost series due to strong female leads and powerful tats -- although these are better -- go Demons!
What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Gavin always delivers! Love her voice and the personality she gives the characters.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
