Product Description

Product Description

Predators beware.



Sometimes natural predators need to be kept in check, and for that, there's Ryann David. Orphaned as an infant and raised by an exiled branch of the church to become a warrior for God, she and her fellow members of Venatores Daemonum have trained all their lives with only one purpose: destroy all demons in the mortal realm.



But when Ryann and her team are sent to hunt down a vampire who has killed one of their own, a new world of danger, betrayal, and conspiracy greets her. Allied with an irreverent psychic detective and the very monsters she was raised to kill, Ryann will risk everything--her life, her faith, and her heart--in pursuit of the truth as the black and white existence she knew turns a murky shade of gray.


---------
Hunter is the first sequel to Bloodlines. The series reading order of the main novels is: Bloodlines, Hunter, Lineage, Exhumed, Oblivion (forthcoming). The books are not standalone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'softer' heroine than Zara 29 Dec 2013
By lyra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ryann is a less abrasive heroine than Zara Lain; younger, more naive and more empathetic. She is is a demon hunter, so the kick ass element remains, but being human it's her ass that tends to get kicked once she is out of the academy and dealing with supernaturals. Hunter is set in the same world as Bloodlines but a few years later and from Ryann's point of view. Cameron doesn't fill in all the gaps and introduces us to some new characters and a developing story arc.

The novel starts like Vampire Academy but happily Cameron is able to draw more into her narrative and the characters have a darker edge. Personally I prefer Zara to Ryann as a UF Heroine but this novel does show that Cameron has much more range as a writer than she showed in Bloodlines. I wasn't too keen on the sample chapter in Bloodlines; it seemed predictable but all in all Hunter is an enjoyable UF read which manages to keep a few surprises up its sleeve.

4.0 out of 5 stars An easy and fun read 24 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Another fun read from Ms Cameron which reminded me slightly of Vampire Academy because the main heroine was a young, inexperienced vampire hunter who constantly questioned authority. Sounds like Rose, right? There were other similarities as well.

However don't get me wrong, this is all generalisation at best, and Hunter is a very good story with its own unique flavour.

Ryann just graduated as a very talented hunter, and her first mission along with a bunch of other newbies is to find and kill Zara Lane, whose delightful character we met in Bloodlines.

She has to contact a local psychic, Ellie Rhys and ask for his help in the search of a famous vampire assassin. However, very slowly Ryann's world is falling apart at the seams along with her investigation.

Nothing is as black and white as she was told during her years of study in a convent. The world is big, exciting and confusing, the monsters are good and bad, and not just all evil, but worst of all, her own teachers and mentors are not as noble and righteous as she was led to believe.

The story is straightforward, but it doesn't feel boring more like cosy. You know, like a favourite pair of comfortable pyjamas? Zara's appearance spices everything up and makes it all the more entertaining, and the ending is pretty romantic.

Overall, an easy, lovely read. Especially recommended for newbies in urban fantasy. It's not overly dark or grisly to put people off, and it's fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars demon hunting nun 26 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The second book in the Demons of Oblivion series.

Bloodlines, the first book, was told from the point of view of Zara Lain (a sassy vampire assassin) but this second book, Hunter, is narrated by a totally different character - Ryann David, the demon hunting nun.

In Hunter I found myself completely turned around. From championing Zara in the first book, in this one I found myself wanting her staked and beheaded which I think shows the talents of Ms Cameron's wordsmithing. Of course, things are never as they seem so be prepared for conflicting emotions as well as psychic shenanigans and surprising betrayals.

As with Bloodlines I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hunter. Well done Ms Cameron.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Those Times When... 15 May 2012
By A. Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...you want your trained killer to be a bit of a prude, Ryann is your gal - um, I mean your nun.

I suggest reading Bloodlines before you read Hunter, but if you feel like a rebel you won't be lost if you read this one first. Ryann is everything Zara is not in many ways, but I suspect they have much more in common than Ryann would be comfortable with. And ultimately that's what this book is about - that fighting evil is complicated and never what the involved parties think it is or will be about. That "good sides" are created through individuals not large entities. And you alone are responsible for doing what's right with the hand you've been dealt.

This book is, as usual, well written, with a pace that moves at just the right speed and a set of well-crafted characters that surprise you in a lot of good ways. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Change of Pace 19 Feb 2012
By Nereid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently finished reading Bloodlines and then jumped straight into Hunter so I must admit it took me a couple of chapters to become immersed in the story. I did find it a bit slow in the beginning with all the background on Ryann and her fellow hunters. Ryann was a bit annoying at the start but she becomes more interesting when she has a crisis of faith and has to decide whether to follow the rules as she was taught or do what she knows is right. Zara makes an appearance and the action picks up from there. An intricate web of relationships are formed and by the end I was keeping my fingers crossed that Ryann would make the right choices. I would definitely buy the next book and can't wait to see where the series goes. For those of us that loved Zara's "kick ass attitude" this is a slower place but well worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Demon hunting Nun! New to the job, and learns loads. 4 Sep 2011
By MelHay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Ryann is training to be a Venatores Daemonum ~ Demon Hunter. Taking her final exam Christian, Ryann's lovely mentor, and Grace, Christian's girlfriend which is forbidden in the church, think she should pass and give high recommendations. Ryann is Christian's star pupil and Ryann feels he is a close friend. Father Matthew points out all her flaws, showing she doesn't follow the rules and goes on her own. Passing Ryann on Christian's recommendation, their best Hunter, Ryann passes and starts on her first case....one that could change her views and life forever. Grace was murdered by her assignment and now Ryann and five others go after this cold blooded Vampire assassin, one known for killing several people about 5 years back in a big battle and even friends for money. Who is it? I think you can guess. ;)

I have to say Skyla has a way with character growth! Skyla is talented at setting up characters to be ones readers may not like then bring them to a point where you worry about them, even cheer for them. Surprisingly like them. Can I say that is a sign of great writing? Ha, I think I did. We start off with Ryann just graduating from school. She's new and young. She has strong beliefs that things are white and black. Ryann has spunk too. She talked back to the Father about her test, though kindly, and stands up to a bully. But he has her strong opinions of Demons and anything of "powers" (lets mention psychic as an example) as it comes from evil. I have to admit Ryann struck me as a perfect christian girl and I didn't know why, but I didn't much care for her in the beginning. She was perfect, written as she should be to make me feel the way I did just so she could grow and come to be a character I really enjoy. Ryann learns first hand there are many things NOT taught in school, and she adjusts easily. She is one to NEVER give up or complain. She just keeps getting up every day going on doing whats right, even if she has to accommodate and change to get there. And change is just what she does. Ryann grows by leaps and bounds in this book, and starts to see there is gray in the world. And somewhere in here I started liking her, and even by the end worrying for her.

Skyla also has an amazing talent for story lines. The book starts off seeming so easy, but by the end there is so much there you just didn't see it all until you where done. And Malice, the short story at the end, multiplies the feeling 10 times. The story seems to start off slower as we build on the new characters and how they come to their beliefs or changes in the end. But this book comes full circle and this information is needed to see the big picture. This beginning is needed to instill some gray thoughts to Ryann and drop hints for later in the book. This is what I enjoy in books! To get you thinking about all that you read, even back from the beginning to piece it all together for so much more meaning. (another sign of great writing? I think so.)

Okay so to some of the characters. We get a whole new cast here. The Hunters Ryann knows in school and on her mission. Christian sounds like a nice character, and would like to see more of in the future. Even Abigail who only appears briefly. Now Ellie... Loved this character! I loved meeting him too. ha ha! When we first met Ellie he and Ryann started on the wrong foot and he was a little annoying, but I loved his comments and jokes. He just ended up stealing my heart in this book. But boy he can really get under Ryann's skin but they make a great team, they just don't know that yet. Our Zara Lain... She does make an appearance in this book. But we see her from Ryann's view point of the church and Demon Hunter. Which I think is a great way to show the opposite side regarding Zara, what others think of her from the view they see.

This book has a different feel than Bloodlines. One I think the readers should follow through with. You will learn so much more about where the series is going. So much more added to the pot here!

Malice

I'm going to make a HUGE suggestion here. If you are reading this series on ebook, GET it at Mundania Press. Here's the reason, the short stories are in the books but the ONLY Ebooks to have the short story are at Mundania Press. AND YOU WILL WANT TO READ THIS.

Malice is the short story in which Skyla gets the brain turning. This is what I love about her stories. This is what I look for. Malice helps tie in a few pieces from Bloodlines and Hunter to give a growing thread of connection and future threat.

This short story is after Hunter and in Zara's view. Which I might add sheds a whole new light on a few things. Yeah, you have to read this one if you are enjoying the series.

Zara has a quick fight scene with a half-demon, reason becomes clear here. Zara is keeping a close eye, er ear, on Father Matthew and a Hunter spy on her side. What till you see who. ;) Possibly their is something...special... with Ryann and Zara is watching for that as well. We also learn of the importance of Nicolette to Zara.
