Review: Hollywood Witch Hunter - Valerie Tejeda

So at first I didn't really like the book. The first hundred pages were fast-paced but kind of boring. There wasn't a lot going on except from world building and character development. Since it is an urban fantasy novel the world building wasn't amazing but very relatable. For me the characters were the worst in this book. I mean I liked them but I didn't really feel like I get to know them in the book and that was kind of confusing. I didn't really know who to trust and also I didn't really know much about the main characters' background story. I know that the lack of information regarding the characters was part of the mystery and that the reader is supposed to puzzle over which side is the good one and which side the bad one but I would have liked to get to know some of the characters a little bit more.
The plot was amazing. I was surprised by all the changes many times and it was really gripping. Also there was a lot of action in this book and I think the main character was really sassy and badass. I never knew what was coming next and I really liked that. If you hate predictable books this is exactly what you should read because it was definitely the opposite of predictable.
Also I think for a fantasy stand alone novel it was really great although I really wish that Valerie Tejeda writes a sequel because I think there was a little cliff hanger at the end and a lot of potential for the story to become a series. I also can live with the fact that this was the end but I would be very sorry. I mean it wrapped up nicely and doesn't necessarily need a sequel but there where still a lot of questions left open. Also I would like to see more of the side characters if there is a next book. All in all it was a really quick and refreshing read and the perfect pick for a readathon ;)
