Hunting Memories closely follows the events of Blood Memories, but if you can follow an out of sequence episode of your favorite TV show, you should be fine if you pick up this one first. And if you are a fan of The Noble Dead Saga, you will probably want to - follow the author!
Julian Ashton is a vampire who lacks the telepath abilities that let vampires adjust the short term memories of their food supply. Resenting this, he resolved to kill off all telepathic vamps so that he could be the master, instead of a freak. It was Julian who issued in the era of killing humans while feeding, and all the vampires he makes think this is the norm - the law. One human he turned, Eliesha, was given a unique assignment: to be caretaker for his immortal but helpless father, a once proud Lord of an estate in Wales condemned to endless senility.
But, far away from the watchful eye of Julian, Eliesha's latent telepathy emerges, and she rediscovers the possibility of feeding without murdering.
Now Eliesha becomes the leader of a small but growing number of vampires and their friends who want to come out of hiding but fear discovery by Julian.
One vampire, Philip, is tormented by bloodlust which jeopardizes the fragile new order. Perfect love casteth out fear, but in Philip's case, this is reversed. Fear of losing Eliesha has to overturn his love of killing.
I have one major objection to this book, so if you are a Hendee fan please skip the rest of this paragraph. This is chick fic. The estrogen is so thick that virtually all the xy chromosome characters are unmanned and demasculated. They're what some females think men ought to be: domesticated; and the ones that don't play well with others must be either tormented or psychotic. Fair enough; something has to balance out all the publicized male wish-fulfillment fantasies that abound. But here's a secondary problem I had with the storyline: personally, if I were a vampire with a conscience, I seriously doubt that would stop me from going vigilante. It seems to me these characters do more harm not killing their socialized victims than they ever did when they were reducing the ranks of recidivists. Hey, if I were a vampire, I'd be the next Lone Ranger, taking a serious bite out of crime.
