[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Hunted

D.B Reynolds lives with her husband of many years in a flammable canyon near Los Angeles. When she’s not writing her own books, she can usually be found reading someone else’s.

D.B is the proud creator of the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series. VAMPIRES IN AMERICA currently consists of 7.5 books – “Raphael”, “Jabril”, “Rajmund”, “Sophia”, “Duncan”, Vignettes Vol. 1, a collection of short stories from the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA world "Betrayed", a Cyn & Rafael novella, "Lucas", and "Hunted", another Cyn and Rafael novella.

by D.B Reynolds

Power, it comes down to this... those who have it, those who want it.
Revenge, the need for it is a fire in the soul, a goad for the unwise.
Hunted, the fate of the foolish when they think to become the hunter.

The Lord of the Midwest is dead, and the powerful vampires of North America are gathering to choose his successor. The Vampire Council will be there to oversee the competition and to keep the violence to a bloody minimum, including Raphael, who will do whatever it takes to ensure the victor is a vampire he can trust. But someone is determined to stop Raphael and his mate, Cyn, from ever reaching Chicago, a hunter who may soon become... the hunted.

I'm a VAMPIRES IN AMERICA fan and I'm not afraid to admit that there has been many a time where I was a squeeing fangirl. Loving to get lost in this world like I do, it seriously feels like forever between stories and I long for another foray into the crazy wonderfulness that is ViA. This novella was WELL worth the wait!

A super sexy read with plenty of action & intrigue, the meeting between Cyn & Kathryn that I've been clamoring for (which incidentally has amazing promise for more fun from our Mates Club! Woot), and a reveal of the reason behind the vampire lord alliances that have been building book after book (yeah, big secrets revealed).

Bottom line, it was so, so good, and highly recommended!

While Hunted technically could be read without having read the rest of the series, I wouldn't recommend it. There is just so much to be enjoyed in the previous installments, and the character evolution between the books up to this point in Hunted is quite remarkable. Take the time, lose yourself. You won't be disappointed!
