Ordained (The Immortal Archives #1) by Devon Ashley
Add to Goodreads | BookLikes
Normally, the school creates the hunters - not the monsters. Abby Sorrensten likes to play rough. Ripping the horns off the foreheads of demons, manipulating lightning and setting things on fire with the flick of your wrist can give you a serious rush. So she probably wasn’t the best choice for the Order’s experimental training program. Thirteen years of isolation, lack of affection and a bruised and broken body from horrendous training sessions creates more than just an exceptional fighter. It creates an evil within - an evil responsible for several deaths the night she left. Two hundred years later Abby resurfaces as the very thing the Order trained her to kill: a vampire. A mythical demon has set his sights on the school and only the ordained hunter has the powers to face it. Unbeknownst to the Order, Abby’s their precious ordained one and their only chance for survival. As much as she would love to leave them hanging, she’s not willing to risk the life of Emily, a fellow friend and hunter also fed up with the organization. But for Abby, locking herself away in a fortress with angry descendents of those she killed causes suspicions and tensions to run high. Abby must learn the demon’s weaknesses for battle before the Order learns hers. Book ONE of the Immortal Archives series.
3 out of 5 (good)
This book is different from mainstream paranormal for two reasons - 1) the vampirism has a scientific explanation and twist and 2) the male and female lead are married and are not in their early teens. There are some twists in this book as characters develop, cross and double cross each other. The plot line is well thought out and evenly paced. Enjoyable for all Urban Fantasy / Paranormal readers.

Seriously… Ordained awarded 2011 Reader Views First Place for Best Fantasy Favorite Silly Quote: Cedric didn't die. Carlisle found him and turned him into Edward. Interesting Fact: I share my birthday - December 16th - with my favorite author, Jane Austen. And Theo James. That's right. Be jealous. :D
