Kait Ballenger is a full-time romance author, wife, a former professional bellydancer, and soon-to-be-professor. She is the multi-published author of the Execution Underground paranormal romance series about an international network of supernatural hunters who fight to protect humanity.
With a B.A in English from Stetson University (2011), Kait is graduate of Spalding University’s M.F.A in Writing for Children and Young Adults program (2013), where she studied dual-genre in screenwriting.
When Kait’s not preoccupied with paranormal creepy-crawlies, she can be found spending time with her family or with her nose buried in a book. She lives in Florida with her husband, their doggie-daughter Sookie (yes, like the heroine in Charlainne Harris’ books), and two mischievous cats Elliot and Olivia (yes, like the Law and Order characters), near the love and care of her supportive family. Kait believes anything is possible with hard work and dedication. One day, she will be a bestseller and have people name their pets after her characters too.

Shadow Hunter was an action packed, dark, dangerous and sexy thrill ride, and as a prequel to a new and thrilling series, it captivates and captures.
Our hero, Damon, is a vampire hunter seeking vengeance. While on his mission, his path intersects with his deceased partner's younger sister and sparks fly. Working together to find the murder and get justice, they are embroiled in a strange new plot being unleashed by the vamps.
Intriguing and entertaining, Kait hooked me with this prequel and I can't wait to read more in the EXECUTION UNDERGROUND series. I would definitely recommend this novella. Kait's voice is fresh and exciting, and while the ideas aren't utterly unique, they're different enough to grab you and keep you interested and given the fascinating world building and depth of character Kait has introduced in Shadow Hunter, I can see SO many ways that this series could go and I can't wait to take the journey! :)
