"Vampire romance left a bit too much to imagination."
I had extremely mixed feelings about this book.
Unfortunately, most of them weren't good. THE HUNT was, in
a word, boring. There wasn't enough information given about
the hero/heroine before jumping right into the battles.
Having to learn about her, and their relationship as the
book went along was bad enough, but it got frustrating
wondering what I'd missed while reading. Things tended to
just "pop up." I felt like I was supposed to know what
was going on when really I had no clue. The information was
just suddenly "there".
Another thing that bothered me about this book was how much
it reminded me of the TV series Kindred: The Embraced.
That bothered me, though I'm not sure why. However, there
were a lot of parallels between the two, too many for me
To sum it up, I didn't feel it was the best written of
Sizemore's books. It left too many unanswered questions --
even with sequels coming up, and was certainly not the
story I expected of her. I never did figure out a lot of
the relationships. I wanted to care about the hero/heroine
and didn't; they were too predictable and one-dimensional.
I tried rereading it for this review, and couldn't. I
love Sizemore. I have everything she's written to date.
And I'll buy the next one in this series because she is an
auto buy for me. One book that disappoints isn't going to
If you like books that start at a point that leaves you
feeling you're missed some integral info somewhere, are
somewhat predictable, pretty gory in places, and not a lot
of romance, then you'll love this book. Actually, I hope my
feelings about it will cause you to buy it yourself so you
can see for yourself.
