'Hunter's Need' is another hit for Shiloh Walker 20 Mar. 2010
By Houston - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shiloh Walker's `Hunters' series is one of the best paranormal romance series out there, and "Hunter's Need", the 11th book, is a fantastic addition. For those new to the series, the order of the books is not clear from the titles, but can be found on Walker's website. Although the books can be read individually, I would recommend reading them in order because a great deal of detailed world building occurs in the first several books, and those details aren't repeated in the subsequent books.

Ana Morell is a complex character; when readers were first introduced to her in "Hunting the Hunter", (book 7), her actions lead to the suffering of others, including Duke Lawson. When the heroes of that book rescued Duke, they also saved Ana and her brother Brad, and drew them into the world of the Hunters. Ana views her new world in black and white; the good guys, including the Hunters, are powerful, fearless, heroes, whose actions meet the highest moral standards. Using such criteria she is unable to see her own strengths, and can't forgive her past.

Duke Lawson has been drawn to Ana since the beginning; it's strong, it's inexplicable, and it lead to his torture at the hands of a psychotic vampire. He has needed time to heal, both physically and mentally. When Ana needs help however, Duke must answer his Hunter's call, and they are soon working together to solve a 30-year-old mystery.

Walker does not take the easy way out of Ana's problems and doubts. Her powers don't suddenly metamorph into an offensive weapon, absolution doesn't exist, and love doesn't solve all. Instead, as Duke and Ana struggle to find a killer, Ana must learn to see that the world actually exists in shades of gray, for both Hunter and non-Hunter alike. Watching their development throughout the story is a pleasure.

The mystery is engaging and will keep you wondering, however it would have been even better if it were a bit more developed. Overall, I thought it was more realistic than many mysteries I've read (how often do you write that about a book involving a shape-shifter and a psychic?); the clues aren't just sitting there for them to find, and the answer comes more by accident than design. Perhaps because of that, the end to the mystery comes a bit abruptly. It is resolved in such a satisfying manner, though, that you won't mind.

Duke and Ana, like many of Walker's characters don't fit the typical romance mold, and they are all the more interesting for it. "Hunter's Need" was an excellent read and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Hunter's Need 10 Mar. 2010
By M. Nix - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Analise Morell would have done anything to protect her brother when they were younger and that included allowing one of the hunters to be captured and tortured by the psychotic vampire that had control of them. Mind you, Analise did her best to correct the situation when she could, but the damage had been done and Analise knew she had gained dangerous enemies. Now she and her brother are in Excelsior - a school for the gifted and home of the hunters. While it's the best place for her brother, Analise just doesn't fit in and she knows it. Finally she leaves to discover her own place.

Duke Lawson has physical reminders of his time in captivity. Duke will never forget the vampire who did it or the girl that caused his distraction and allowed it to happen. While Duke understands why Analise did it and knows that she also helped with his release, he's not sure he can ever forgive. So why is he just as grumpy when some guy hits on her as when she is in his eyesight? Duke isn't sure what to think when Analise up and leaves her brother in the school.

Analise lives in Alaska now, a place she has grown to love. But something just isn't right and Analise can't put her finger on what it is. After a little research, Analise calls Excelsior to ask for help - just her luck to get Duke on the phone at his snarliest. When Duke is ordered to go help Analise, he isn't happy but acknowledges privately that he would have anyway. When Analise and Duke see each other again, the attraction is back and it's trying to make up for lost time. Too bad Analise and Duke aren't sure that's what they want. There's a serial killer to find and spirits to release all while trying to understand just what type of relationship is developing between Analise and Duke. It's going to take total understanding and forgiveness to get their killer and come out unscathed.

Take two people with an unhappy shared past and add a little danger, stir well and the result is amazing path to love. Hunter's Need brings Analise and Duke together, apart and together again as the years pass. Analise made a tough decision in order to save her brother - a decision that leads to Duke's capture and torture. Knowing and understanding what led to his capture isn't the same as forgiveness to Duke when it comes to Analise. I would have believed that the most Analise and Duke could ever become was good friends given their past. I would have shortchanged them had they gone with my instincts. Luckily they had Shiloh Walker to show them that love can come from many things. The mystery grabbed my attention as much as the growing relationship between Duke and Analise. I just love it when all parts of the plot grabs me strongly as happened with Duke and Analise's path to their future. Hunter's Need is gripping whether you enjoy romance or suspense and it's a huge bonus if you love both as I do.

5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! 1 Dec. 2009
By Natalie S - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Analise Morell finds herself living and training at Excelsior, a Hunter training facility that uses the guise of an exclusive private school. A psychic, she finds herself at odds with the world in which she must now live, and the person most disconcerting to her is Duke, a shape shifter. Ana is the reason Duke was kidnapped and held by a brutal female vampire, and her guilt at his suffering is never far from her mind. To make matters worse, Ana yearns for Duke's touch, and her attraction to him makes her wish for things that can never be. Breaking free, she heads to Alaska for a new life only to come across secrets that beg to be discovered. The information she is getting alludes to a killer, but Ana is unable to work alone; she finally calls Excelsior for back up never thinking, nor realizing, that Duke will be the man sent to help.

Duke should hate Analise Morell. He knows this, his mind knows this, but his heart is being stubborn. Duke is unable to keep her smell from his nostrils or his eyes from looking for and roaming over her figure. He does not trust her, but he wants her. When she calls Excelsior for help, Duke is the last man that should have been sent to help her, but he is the only man his traitorous heart will allow near her. With time not on their hands and a killer to find, Duke will need to stay on his toes to keep himself in control. Yeah. It's a good idea, but so not happening!

I am glad that the majority of HUNTER'S NEED took place in Alaska. The icy climate was the perfect counterpoint to the scorching hot love scenes with touching and compelling interactions between Duke and Ana which would have melted wax on the pages of this phenomenal read. Plotwise, HUNTER'S NEED is one of the most attention grabbing and consistent novels penned by Shiloh Walker. She has placed just the right amount of emotion and sexual tension in HUNTER'S NEED.

The ability to make characters vulnerable to love but still very strong is one of the traits I find I have to have when reading a romance novel, and HUNTER'S NEED has this and so much more. I didn't want to put it down - and I actually didn't! I read HUNTER'S NEED cover to cover and found it to be one of Shiloh Walker's best, and I'm sure other readers will as well!

4.5 star read! 9 Dec. 2010

You can never go wrong in picking up a novel by this author. Though I have not read the whole Hunters series and am not that much of a fan of romance of paranormal genre, any book by Shiloh Walker is well worth the try. This book is trademark Shiloh Walker, mystery and suspense in spades together with a hero and heroine that you can relate to, whose love and need for one another is just out of this world.

Duke is a shape-shifter who was betrayed by Ana 5 years back when Ana and Duke had first met. Duke is a hunter, a part of an elite group who all have special powers. Some of them are vampires, others werewolves with a couple of witches thrown into the mix with shape-shifters as well. Ana is a psychic who had to use her ability to save her younger brother from the clutches of a sadistic vampire by luring Duke in. Duke had never forgiven or forgotten the fact that Ana had almost cost him his life. Going out of his way to avoid Ana is the hardest thing Duke has ever had to do since he still wants her like crazy.

Ana can't help but want Duke as well. But knowing that Duke despises the very ground she walks on finally takes its toll on Ana and she leaves the Hunter's school and moves to Alaska to settle down. A year on, Ana has a job and a place to call home, together with a nagging feeling that there is something horribly wrong or evil lurking around the mountains that surround the city. This feeling intensifies when Ana finds out that girls have been going missing, some of them turning up dead, others never to be found. And all the girls bare a strong resemblance to the first girl Marie that went missing, whose murder was at first blamed on her fiance' Paul, who now lurks on the streets mumbling and muttering to himself.

Ana knowing that she wouldn't be able to handle whatever evil that lurked around, calls in the Hunters for help. Duke who had been growing ever so restless since Ana left, is the one to pick up the call and eventually the one to head to Alaska to figure out whats got Ana so riled up. From the moment these two see each other, its all sparks and high powered jolts of lust between the two.

As these two team up to find out the source of evil who has killed dozens of young girls, the ghosts of these young women tend to haunt the two and eventually end up helping Ana to identify the killer who turns out to be much too close to comfort to the first victim.

All in all, great romance, a pine tingling mystery and a yummy shape-shifter with whom a gal can never go wrong!

Final Grade: A-

terrific Hunters romantic fantasy 4 Dec. 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Psychic Analise Morell and shapeshifter Duke Lawson attend Excelsior exclusive private school for Hunters. They hate each other ever since she left him with a nasty vampire four years ago. His friends helped him escape hell, but neither of them could help him escape his bittersweet memory of kisses and betrayal. They also conceal how attracted they are to each other inside of their loathing for one another. Simply they keep their distance.

However Ana needs his help as she has no one else she feels she can turn to yet ironically she distrusts him. He would prefer to tell her to go get bit by a feral vampire in hell, but fears she will go after a killer by herself if he says no. Reluctantly though he distrusts her he agrees to be her co-Hunter going after a deadly predator whose victims haunt Ana to liberate their souls.

This is a terrific Hunters romantic fantasy starring two intriguing protagonists who have an interesting history that interferes with their present. The story line is fast-paced from the onset as Duke begins to understand his beloved enemy to his chagrin. Fans will relish this fine entry and seek previous Hunter thrilling tales (see Hunting the Hunter).
