Format: Kindle Edition
I had high hopes of an action-packed, adventure filled, romantic novel with lots of steam. I didn't get any of that, which I am disappointed with, but I did get a long-winded tale about reincarnation, which was very apparent from the first 10 pages, so I was prepared to make do.

Unfortunately the tale was so slow and kept skipping about that I ended up egging myself on to continue reading it, assuring myself that the big true-love-through-the-centuries reunion wasn't far off...but that didn't come until page 189 (book has 309 pages).

Starting off in 1506 England, it's the tale of Agnes aka Nessa, an 18-year old witch married to Elias, who at this tender age is already a Hunter, and is protecting an English village. Unfortunately, she has attracted the sexual attentions of a local squire, who has incited the locals to turn against her, and Elias ends up knifed to death. Agnes's powers cannot save Elias, but with his dying breath, he professes his love for her and that he will come back to her...which he does, but his coming back to her takes 500 years...

For me, it felt as if the first 189 pages of the book took me 500 years to read, as I was stop/start, stop/start reading; it wasn't a book that I could pick up and read until I was at the end. When I got to page 189, I continued to be disappointed, as it was pages yet til the leads got close enough to even talk to each other...

However, this wasn't all that irritated me with the book: the author introduced a character for around 3 pages or so before killing her off - why? I couldn't fathom her importance to the tale, nor the impact that she had on Agnes/Nessa now aka Agnes/Nessa/Morgan.

A great ending for a worthy witch, I was glad Nessa finally found love again. 8 Jun 2011

Hunter's Fall by Shiloh Walker
Paranormal Romance - June 7th, 2011
4 stars

Hunter's Fall is the greatly anticipated book to the author's paranormal Hunters series. Hunters are highly skilled paranormal beings who protect the world against evil.

Nessa is great witch who is hundreds of years old. She is tired of living. When she was young, her husband was killed and he vowed to come back to her. However, he has never returned and she wants to depart her lonely life. When she battles with an evil blood witch, Nessa hopes it will finally kill her. But to her dismay she finds she has inherited the witch's young body instead! When her beloved young charged dies, it is a last straw to her sanity and Nessa becomes restless and reckless.

Dominic is a young vampire Hunter who has always dreamed of a mysterious woman. When he discovered she might actually be real, he is determined to find her at any cost. But what happens when the powerful witch doesn't want to be found and has lost her memory? Can he save her in time?

I was excited to read this book because I wanted poor Nessa to finally find love. I could understand her deep weariness of carrying on alone and was so happy that she would finally find love again! But sometimes I felt the book lingers too much on her sadness and loneliness, which made me wish that Nessa would do something to snap out of her depression. Dominic is the perfect hero. He will let nothing stop him from finding Nessa once he discovers she is real, even if it means fighting against someone stronger than himself. This only thing I was a bit disappointed with was that there were too few flashbacks concerning Nessa's past with her husband. I wanted to know about more them and how they were together before tragedy struck. Also I would have also liked to know more about Nessa's life as a young Hunter.

A great ending for a worthy witch, I was glad Nessa finally found love again.

Love the Hunters but not this story 12 Nov 2011
By FizzySmile - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been a fan of Shiloh Walker for at least 10-12 years...while I haven't read ALL her books, she ranks as one of my favorites and many of her books remain on my keeper shelf, including the early ones from this series. I've read all the books in the Hunter's series, including those from the original publisher, Ellora's Cave and ones that have been available through another publisher, I believe it's Samhain. I will say right off I prefer these to the new mainstream novels. However, over all, this is a great series but to truly enjoy it and connect with the story and characters, you need to read all of them.

I was very excited that Nessa was finally going to find love, especially after everything she's been through. She has been the rock of the Hunter's for so long, she deserves happiness. I felt Dominic was a worthy mate and reincarnation for Nessa--dark, brooding and alpha (or "Master") but also willing to be vulnerable and put his heart out there for her. I love that Ms. Walker brings characters in from previous stories to keep them intertwined. One of the problems I've found with some series is that too often the story will focus on the main characters without enough back story and previous characters to offer that connection. If you're going to write a series where so many characters are integral and well loved, you have to continue to use them as supporting characters in future publications.

This being said, I had a very hard time with this particular book. Even though it's a reasonable length, I just felt like it was too long. I kept thinking "OK, THIS chapter, they'll meet...." and they didn't and the struggle continued. Another reviewer pointed out the Nessa seemed to be stuck in her depression and it kept cycling. I agree, but I see it more that we spent a lot of time in the heads of both Dominic and Nessa and while that's necessary to some extent to know the story, it felt like too much to me. I didn't think it was a bad story, just that it seemed to drag on at times.

Will this prevent me from continuing to read and enjoy future chapters in this series? No, not at all. I'm looking forward to whatever is next, and I'm hoping we'll see a story for Brad once he's older. As with other authors whose series I love, some are better than others. All I need to do is pull one of my favorites off the book shelf and I remember why I love it so much. This just won't be one of those books.

Hunter's Fall reviewed by The Book Vixen 12 July 2011
By Brianna (The Book Vixen) - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Why I Read this Book: I'm always up for a Shiloh Walker read. It all started with Broken and I've been hooked on her writing since. She writes great romance stories with lots of heat.

What I Liked: The journey for Nessa and Dominic's reunion. It wasn't easy and boy, were there obstacles. The hero and heroine had to work at their relationship, more than you can imagine.

The author didn't disappoint with the love scenes. If it's one thing I know I can count on with this particular author, it's chemistry with the hero and heroine and hot steamy love scenes. There wasn't an overload of love scenes in this book since the hero and heroine don't share page time until more than 1/2 into the book.

Even though I get the feeling that Nessa's story began earlier in the series, I felt like I got her whole story in Hunter's Fall. I was a bit confused about Agnes' character in regards to Nessa in the prologue but that was cleared up 2 pages later.

What I Didn't Like: I felt like I was missing part of the connection with some of the characters. Duke, Ana, her brother Brad. There's a hint of something from the past regarding Ana and Dominic but it wasn't elaborated on.

I did get confused at times while reading Hunter's Fall. The Nessa/Morgan storyline got a bit confusing for me. There were quite a few characters thrown into this book and I didn't know where they came from. Probably from one of the previous books in this series. While Hunter's Fall can be read as a stand alone, I'd say it's probably best to rest the whole series to catch up on the other characters that were mentioned. And to find out Dominic's back story as well.

Overall Impression: For me, Hunter's Fall is a book that I could have benefited more from if I had read the rest of the series; to fill in some of the blanks. There are some characters in this book that have already been established in the series that I would like to get to know better. Like Malachi and Kelsey, Duke and Ana. I'd also like to read Brad's story. Hunter's Fall is somewhat of a complex read, one you won't want to rush through.

terrific romantic urban fantasy 7 Jun 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Five centuries ago, Nessa the immortal witch held her lover Elias in her arms as he told her he would return to her just before he died. She became a member of the Hunters, whose mission is to control non-humans from attacking mortals. However, she has become wary of fighting and her beloved has not returned to her.

In Idaho Nessa suffers amnesia after a blow to the head during a brawl. Elias has returned as Dominic Ralston the vampire- hunter. He believes he is certifiable as he has spent a lifetime dreaming of the woman he loves but has not met. Now he knows his beloved is in trouble, if she is real, he would willingly die for to keep her safe. However, he must first find the woman who stars in his wet dreams even though he is unsure she exists.

The fifth Hunters romantic urban fantasy (see Hunter's Need and Hunter's Salvation) is a terrific character driven thriller as Nessa and Dominic are psychically linked even before they meet at Excelsior for the first time in five hundred years. The story line is somewhat thin as the evil enemy wants both dead before they accept their intertwined fate; yet series fans will appreciate the well written second chance at love saga.

New Author For Me! 8 Feb 2012
By Lisa McGeen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
First, I want to thank Shiloh for allowing me to be apart of her blog tour. I love this series and was so excited to get the chance to preview this book ( I had been waiting -- sometimes impatiently for it). But now its time is here. Normally, I would do my own summary of the book and what it was about but in this case I am not going to. I think that this book is so good that you really just need to get out there and read it for yourself! I know for me I got sucked into this book and read it all in one sitting. I am thrilled that it meet and exceeded all of my expectations. I find Shiloh's approach to this series very refreshing and different. I think the way that Nessa is forced to handle her emotions in this book makes it different than other paranormal books I have read recently. Shiloh Walker has a wonderful style and a certain flair for being scenes and characters to life and Nessa is one of my all time favorite characters. My only concern, if it can really be one, is that there were times where the story slowed down a bit and I had to make myself focus to get though it but those were few and pretty far between. While I know I told you I read it in one sitting, it still did slow down in parts where I just had to keep reading because I knew it was going to pick up again.
