Heart of the Huntress picks up a few months after Camille left off. I'm happy to say that a new character joins the team - Camille's sister, Emily. I loved Emily's character through this as I felt like I could relate to her more, particularly her sarcastic streak! She definitely is the star of the show in my eyes and I'm glad Tess brought her out of Bethlem. Of course, Camille, Dr Bennett and our older Artful Dodger, Nathaniel are back too. Having been at sea for a while, Nathaniel's naturally gained some muscle but he's still the Nathaniel we all know and love. Camille herself is up to her usual tricks, dressing as a boy to go out and buy food for her family and worrying constantly, whilst Emily is busy painting and Dr Bennett is... writing about Lycanthropy or something.
This time the scooby gang are off to investigate some strange werewolfy goings on over in Transylvania, asked over by three rather odd seeming Taksony Brothers. Camille and Emily happily prepare for the trip, not knowing what lies ahead - lies, storms, lashings, seperation - and a little bit of seasickness!
The second half of the book seemed to be a slightly slower pace but much more enjoyable. I enjoyed the introduction of two new characters and learning the Taksony Brother's secrets! The ending was very quick paced yet still managed to squeeze some humour in somehow and as usual, the ending left me wanting more! So I think Tess will be pestered for a third book... perhaps having Emily's point of view this time?

The worst part of this book is when Camille thinks she has lost everyone close to her. It has some really good twists here and I really enjoyed the story. I would be happy to see the sisters story now.
I found this book above and beyond the normal self-published book. The writing was extremely good, and as an aspiring author myself, this has a lot of sway with my rating. The story-line as well was very interesting, and I only found it to slightly lag in the middle of the book, but it picked up quickly.
May I just say that I love Nathaniel Strider? He rocks.
Okay, back to the review. So for those of you who read Camille, I believe that this book is actually better than the first, because the story-line was a little more involved. The plot was somewhat surprising as well. I didn't see this book going the way it did. Now Camille, she seemed more mature that in the first, and by that I mean that she didn't 'giggle' over everything.In fact I think that that description was only used once throughout the whole book.
Okay, so please don't let the cover sway you away from this book. It is pretty, but it does look like the book could be somewhat risque. This is not the case. The book is very clean, like all the Tess Oliver books I have read.
