Dark Descent (The Arondight Codex Book 1) Kindle Edition
London bartender, Scarlett Ravenwood, has never fit in.
She’s a nobody with zero future, and the world thrives on reminding her.
But when she's attacked by a demon, and becomes entangled with the mysterious man who saves her, Scarlett learns she’s not quite human. She’s a Natural — a demon hunting mage with powers unlike anything in the supernatural world — and her destiny is not her own.
Thrust into a hidden world on the brink of an apocalypse, Scarlett must leave behind everything she’s ever known to protect humanity...or risk losing her soul forever.
Dark Descent is the first novel in The Arondight Codex, a new Urban Fantasy series full of action, adventure, and romance, woven with the threads of lost Arthurian legend. Oh, and demons. Lots of demons.

First off, our Heroine, Scarlett, or Purples (gag) as the H likes to call her. She's one special surly snowflake. Plagued by visions/memories of her parents death - that she's not sure really happened or not - but the vision is pretty precise and if she's been having it for twenty years then I'm not sure why she feels the need to go on meds, considers herself a bit loopy but other than that very mundane.
When she witnesses a magical event - the author can't decide whether to make Scarlett scared and unwilling to believe, or balls out throwing herself forward for no reason what so ever. Scarlett's motivations never really make sense - she hunts for an entire day for the H, then when she sees something a little off (even though she's witnessed several off things in previous encounters) she decides to make a run for it.
Then there is Wilder, the H, or not so affectionately as I like to refer to him as the a-hole. Seriously, everything out of his mouth is derogatory, a put down or just offensive.
I assume these two get together eventually - but as neither are likeable I wish them nothing but a lot of togetherness time.
The story / plot - Scarlett's motivations too often failed to make sense. She's witnessed some seriously weird stuff, but is still unwilling to believe any magical explanation, shrieking and being kind of a doofus. Tracking down Wilder made no sense. Running from him. Submitting to the test at the Naturals HQ when they are all jerks??? None of this made any sense.
Her hair is purple - and several times the author hints that this is natural - in what world does anyone have purple hair and not believe in the supernatural??
Surly heroine. Arrogant a-hole Hero. A storyline that at the 42% really hadn't gone anywhere. The problem is - the special snowflake discovering a magical world and that she has special powers has been done to death - and if you are going to adhere to that trope then you better make sure your characters & plot are stellar, because otherwise, as it does in this case, it will suffer badly in comparison to so many other stories that went down the same path but did it so much better.
