“Midnight Rider” by D.V. Wolfe – Review

My review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“D.V. Wolfe’s ‘Midnight Rider’ delivers a wild, dark urban fantasy that grips you from the very beginning and refuses to let go. The concept of Hell’s first work-release program sets the stage for a thrilling adventure, blending supernatural elements with humor and heart. The author’s writing style is sharp, engaging, and laced with dark humor that adds a delightful touch to the narrative. Wolfe effortlessly weaves together a complex plot, introducing a diverse cast of characters that you can’t help but root for, and manages to keep a balance of suspense and humor. The protagonist’s encounters with demons, fairies, and a teenage hitchhiker with ‘Firestarter’ vibes create a dynamic and entertaining narrative. The stakes are high, and the pressure is on, but the protagonist faces it all with Peeps, whiskey, and a sawed-off shotgun, making her a memorable and relatable character.
I recommend this exhilarating read.

Hell’s first work release program; killing monsters to save souls. With time running out, can she outrun her demons and save the day?
Always read the fine print. Especially when you’re making a deal with the devil. That’s how they got me and my entire hometown. Luckily, those jokes about lawyers and Hell are pretty accurate.
After a lengthy court case downstairs, I’ve been sent topside in Hell’s very first work-release program. All I have to do is hunt down and kill things that go bump in the night; monsters, and demons, and cryptids, oh my! If I kill enough to meet my quota, the souls of the townsfolk will be set free. If I don’t, we all stay downstairs…permanently.

So, no pressure or anything. On top of that suck salad, a tribe of cannibals are looking to put me on the menu, a pair of murderous fairies are taking people joy-riding, and I’ve got a teenage hitchhiker with ‘Firestarter’ vibes riding shotgun. Last but not least, a big daddy demon is hellbent on taking me back downstairs ahead of schedule.

But I’ve got Peeps, whiskey, and a sawed-off shotgun. What more does a gal need to do the job?
Midnight Rider is your ticket to ride shotgun in a dark urban fantasy monster hunt spanning thirteen heart-stopping, hilarious books. If you love the stories of Jim Butcher, K.F. Breene, Auburn Tempest, Lindsay Buroker, Ramy Vance, or Stacey Rourke this series will be right at home on your shelf.
