The Protector Book 1

Exiled by M.R. Merrick

Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped.
Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna — a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret.
In their attempt to stop them, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.

I like the cover. It works well for the theme in the book.
I also like how there was no instant love in this story. I hate stories like that. I don’t know if they will "fall in love" but they respected each other and that was earned over time. Yes it was a short amount of time but I still think you can judge a person in that short of time.
There was definitely weird parts in this book. But I love the idea of demons, half demon’s monsters and portals. It opens a whole awesome level of fantasty. I am curious how the rest of the book series will go.
