Review: The Devil's Only Friend

The Devil's Only Friend
Dan Wells
Tor Books
From Goodreads: John Wayne Cleaver hunts demons: they've killed his neighbors, his family, and the girl he loves, but in the end he's always won. Now he works for a secret government kill team, using his gift to hunt and kill as many monsters as he can...

...but the monsters have noticed, and the quiet game of cat and mouse is about to erupt into a full scale supernatural war.

John doesn't want the life he's stuck with. He doesn't want the FBI bossing him around, he doesn't want his only friend imprisoned in a mental ward, and he doesn't want to face the terrifying cannibal who calls himself The Hunter. John doesn't want to kill people. But as the song says, you can't always get what you want. John has learned that the hard way; his clothes have the stains to prove it.

When John again faces evil, he'll know what he has to do.
The Devil's Only Friend is the first book in a brand-new John Wayne Cleaver trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells.
My Review: I was thriller to find out Dan Wells was continuing the story of John Cleaver, such a complete and interesting character. John struggle with his psychopath side is one you hope he wins, but you have come to understand his struggle is real. After losing everyone he loves he leaves his home town and joins up with the FBI to track the monsters., but longs to be on his own and track down the monsters. This was a great book and if Dan Wells wants to write about John Cleaver for the rest of his life I will read them for the rest of mine. I never have found a character I enjoy so much. Well written and fast paced now I can't wait for the next book. This series is underrated but I am glad too be one of its loyal fans.
