Ulric's character shows such development as to render him completely irresistible as he progresses from a controlling and dominant individual forged from his position as leader among the upyrs (vampire-like creatures) of Scotland into a more understanding and sypmathetic yet no less dominant character. Juliana's own strength is an undeniable force in the book and she is every much as likeable as Ulric; together they share a very palpable bond that every reader would find envious.
By far the most fascinating aspect of the book is the existence of the upyrs in mountainous caves, protected by ancient Pictish magic and their splendid shape-changing. Holly also brings in the inter-pack rivalry which serves to make all the characters more real and credible and gives the supporting cast a chance to shine in a manner uniquely their own.
Any further books concerning any of the other upyrs would be most welcome if they are anything like the pure magic the author has generated in Hunting Midnight.
I could not connect with the characters at all- how can a book be good when you cannot establish any empathy with the Hero or Heroine. I really lost interest in what became of them: take Ulric, the hero. One minute sad and angry looking for his old love Gillian, but suddenly falling for someone else.
I bought this book based on the reviews I had read. Most of the time I use reviews to find 'new' authors. Most reviews are helpful. In this case I feel let down by bad plot, lackluster characters and insipid writing.

I love the combination of romance and erotica in this novel. It is far steamier than the first installment and it doesn't go on explaining the life of the upyrs like in the first part. Also, the characters are far better developed this time around. It was great to get reacquainted with some of the characters. All I knew about Ulric in Catching Midnight was that he was very possessive, but he is far more dimensional in Hunting. And he is one irresistible hero! I even found myself thinking that wolves, at least the ones in the novel, were sensual and erotic. Though I find it strange that in this series the characters are shape-shifting vampires. I always thought that in these sorts of books the characters are either vampires or shape shifters, not both. But I suppose that paranormal fiction writers are free to be as creative as they want to be. Anyway, I also loved the medieval setting. The aforementioned setting added a great deal of magic and darkness to the story. This is classic Emma Holly! She awoke my senses, my heart and intellect with this phenomenal gem. There's a slight cliffhanger in Hunting, which means that there are more surprises to come. Perhaps the next installment will center on Gytha or Bastien. I cannot recommend this gem enough! But you have to read Catching Midnight first or else you won't know the whole story.
Juliana Batoc flees an arranged betrothal. Ulric sees her, but instead of his usual taste for human blood, he feels a need to keep her safe due to some weird attraction. He agrees to help her, but soon she knows his deepest secrets and demands he bring her over as he has done with her virginity. He wants nothing more, but first she must meet the pack who must accept her as one of them. Inside that Eden resides a new snake prepared to cause trouble for the pack through the human female.
Though very similar in tone to its predecessor CATCHING MIDNIGHT, fans of historical vampire romances will appreciate Emma Holly's paranormal tale. The strong couple and his pack make believers of the audience. The story line hooks the reader with its prime theme of acceptance of her by his kin though the intrigue of the troublemaker makes it a bit too easy to reject Juliana even if it adds suspense. Fans of fourteenth century paranormal tales will enjoy HUNTING MIDNIGHT.
In a word - WOW! This is Emma Holly who, in my mind, is rapidly becoming one of the most amazingly sensual erotic writers of the decade! Yes, I read the first book in the series, CATCHING MIDNIGHT, and loved it as I became acquainted with the race of Upyrs. In this sequel, which is easily a stand alone, you will be introduced again to these shape-shifting immortals and be in for the treat of your lives if you like your reading sprinkled liberally with BLAZINGLY HOT and sensually explicit encounters coupled with a beautiful and tender `love' story! What more can I say - the story is solid, the characters are well defined, it introduces you to new characters (Bastien and Emile), brings back some of the older lovable ones, yet still lets you feel the emotions of tenderness that only a beautiful love story can do. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can only hope to see a continuation with Bastien's story in the very near future. --- Marilyn, Official Reviewer for [...]
