A former priest and demon hunter, Father Gunter is a demon’s worst nightmare. But even he will need help to destroy the demons that threaten the small farming community of Bucktown. When he sees a news broadcast about tragic events taking place in the town, he realizes he has work to do.
Along the way, help arrives – but from an unexpected source. Will it be enough to see the demon hunter through the final showdown with evil?
The Bucktown Babies is the first book in the Father Gunter, demon hunter series. I have to say this genre is not my usual type of read but I have to admit there is something that always fascinates me with all things super natural and I have enjoyed the few books I have read in the genre.
This was relatively a quick read at less than two hundred pages. I liked Father Gunter who constantly gets called Gunther by people he first meets. I could feel his frustration in constantly having to tell people how to pronounce his name.
Obviously being a priest he wants to fight for the greater good and this means eradicating the world of demons. When he sees on the news a town that has been hit with lots of babies dying, he knows that this is more to do with an evil force so takes it upon himself to save the town.
There is a background thread which I enjoyed to do with Gunter and his sister which added to the meaning of why Gunter is doing what he is. It has you routing for Gunter throughout and wanting the good guys to come out on top.
The Bucktown Babies is a solid start to what looks set to be a dark and intriguing series. Ideal for fans of the super natural genre.
