“A truly remarkable literary piece you would love from beginning to end.”—Bibliophile Angel Reviews on Hunters’ Watch Brigade: Initiation

A demigod’s work is never done . . .

All monster hunter Samantha Silverton wants is a little R&R. She and her sexy partner/cat shifter Max have a week off in the city that never sleeps, and she intends to enjoy it. But before she can pack her suitcase, she’s caught up in the middle of a wicked game—a smartphone app driven scavenger hunt that’s bringing all the big, bad supernaturals to NYC to play. The bad part? The game was the brainchild of Alex Van Dam—Sam’s first love. What’s worse? She has to play alone.

Maximillion Ra hasn’t quite got a handle on his unique shifter magic yet. He’s in love with Sam, but if he’s ever going to be any good to her, he has to face his family’s curse. But how can he leave Sam now, especially with her old flame in the picture?

Alex Van Dam isn’t interested in who wins his game. He just wants to find the final prize—an ancient Greek relic. Once he has it, he’ll use the artifact’s magic to control all the supernaturals in Manhattan, starting with the Hunters’ Watch Brigade.

Only Sam stands in his way. And without Max by her side, even the monster hunting daughter of Poseidon has to wonder if she stands a chance . . .

Paula Millhouse was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, where Spanish moss whispers tales in breezes from the Atlantic Ocean to her soul. As a child, she soaked in the sunshine and heritage of cobblestones, pirate lore, and stories steeped in savory mysteries of the South.

She lives in the mountains now, but honors her Southern heritage as a story teller by sharing high-heat adventures with her readers. Escape your daily routine with books where justice does exist, true love is worth fighting for, and happily ever afters are expected.

The second book in the Hunters' Watch Brigade series, The Game is a really good read, the dynamic storyline and well developed characters makes this series a truly refreshing read. I am so glad I took the chance on Ms Millhouse and I will definitely be reading more of her books

This is the second book in the Hunters' Watch Brigade series. I haven't read the first book yet but this works well as a stand alone. i enjoyed the story quite a bit even though some of the actions of the characters were a bit off. The premise is that there are a group of supernatural beings, the Hunters' Watch Brigade, that are taxed with policing other supernaturals who are up to no good. Demigod Sam and her guardian protector Max are on their way to take some vacation time when they are tasked to do just one more job. Things get fouled up and the vacay is cancelled. An old flame of Sam's has developed an exciting new gaming app to help him recover a powerful artifact that was stolen from Artemis, Sam's cousin. The artifact in the wrong hands could be used to control the world. Sam must retrieve it before anyone else gets their hands on it. Unfortunately, at this critical time, Max must go on a quest of his own in order to learn how to control his own magic. Max and Sam are used to relying on each other but have to learn to work separately to conquer their individual journeys. It's a fun book if you don't take it to seriously. I will probably go back and read the first book for fun.
I received an ARC from NetGalley for a fair and honest review.

Samantha , a demi-god is a member of the Hunters Watch Brigade. They protect people including paranorms from evil. Vampires, demi -,gods, shifters and Gods are aware of what's going on. Some wizards and witches and other paranormal go bad especially when a prize is involved. Someone has decided that playing this game kind of like Pokemon would be fun but the prizes are so much more dangerous. Max is Sam's boyfriend who watches her back and is a child of Bast and cat shifter. The team get together and try to find out what the game is and try to stop it before anyone can get hurt or killed. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.

Hunters' Watch Brigade: The Game is the second book in the Hunters' Watch Brigade series, and we reunite with Sam, Max, Shade, Cyn, Helmina, Miss Daisy, Tex, and the rest of the crew. We start off in the thick of the action as Sam and Max try to stop a thieving wizard. It turns out he is just the start, as a game is being played that could have serious consequences. On top of that, Max is struggling. He only has six weeks from his shift to show his allegiance to Bast in the form of a vision quest. Until he does that, his magic isn't all it could be, and it puts Sam in danger.

This is a great continuation of the first book. Sam and Max actually spend much of this one apart from each other, but that just makes it all the better when they reunite. I would love to know more about Max's fourth level, but it looks like the third will just have to do. Sam misses Max, but has to learn how to work without him in the meantime. I loved her going to Olympus, and speaking with Artemis. I thought that was perfectly written, just how I would imagine the Greek Gods playing!

As usual, there were no editing or grammatical errors that jolted me from the story. With great characters and excellent world building, I found the pacing to be well timed, with the transition from one scene to the next smooth. I have no hesitation in recommending either this book, or the series so far. Can't wait to read more.
