Kendall is a female vampire, a Hunter whose mission is to weed out the 'evil' vampires, often partnered with werewolves or witches. Partnered with Duke, a shape shifter, they seek out vampires and terminate them. However, Kendall realises that someone is hunting her - a human. Kane Winter is a man with a mission, ever since his shapeshifter partner Duke was killed two years ago by a vampire. Kane has trained himself as a vampire hunter and has seventeen kills to his credit. When he sees Kendall he remembers her as the vampire involved in Duke's death and sets out to kill her.
A lot of novels in this genre would have drawn out the hero hunting the heroine angle to fill the entire book - in this story Shiloh Walker gifts her lead characters with a good dose of common sense and they very quickly realise that they are working together towards the same goal and stop trying to kill each other. It doesn't take long before Kane and Kendall act on their mutual attraction but before they spend much time together Kendall discovers a shocking secret - that the source of a significant amount of evil and murder can ultimately be laid at her door because of the actions of a vampire, Cat, that Kendall turned. Kendall and Kane must try to find Cat and kill her - but Cat is powerful and it's not that easy.
The romance, although a central part of this plot, wasn't the most interesting aspect. We are given several sex scenes between our two principle characters but far more interesting are the moral dilemmas that these characters face.Read more ›
This book has a problem, rather than having one coherent story here, we have two parts that don't quite work together.
The first part of the book deals with how Kendall and Kane meet and how they subsequently end up together. We learn very little about either character, so basically what we have is Kane chasing Kendall, then losing her. Essentially it's a problem with pacing, the first six chapters are too slow and repetitive, and I couldn't connect with either Kane or Kendall. There is no real plot here and this could have been condensed by at least half. I think the idea was to introduce the reader to the world of the Hunters through Kane. But it's as if Kane and Kendall exist in a vacuum of bars and alleys with the occasional vampire or drug dealer popping up.
The second part of the book is much better. The plot finally arrives in Chapter 7, along with a slew of interesting secondary characters - Analise and Brad, (they were written really well and I wanted to know more about them, hope they turn up in a future book), Cat, Vax and Agnes. The story is off and running. We have an antagonist, we have bad things happening to good people, we have secondary plot threads, and we have back-story. We have all the things that were missing in the first part of the book.
Shiloh Walker can also write hot love scenes - of which there are several. :) At least one of which comes under the heading - we need to rescue our friend but let's get it on first.Read more ›
I really liked Kane as a character, he's strong yet with vulnerabilities that make him an interesting character. Kendall was an interesting character as well but somehow she didn't have a certain spark that would elevate her into a great character. Agnes I would like to see more of.
After two years, Kane Winter still doesn't know what really happened the night his bounty hunting partner was murdered. What he does know is that there was a mysterious woman at the scene, and he won't rest until he finds her...
Kendall is accustomed to vampire games. After all, she is one herself--part of an elite group of warriors who keep the other vamps in line by destroying the ones who would prey on the weak and innocent. But now she's the one being stalked...
When all trails lead to Kendall, Kane is consumed by a desire greater than vengeance--a hunger to possess this woman for himself. Together, they will travel down a dangerous path of seduction and surrender, until there are no rules left to break--and nowhere left to hide
