"Wonderful exhilarating vampiric romance"
In Vasile, Romania, an area better known as Transylvania,
Camille Howard seeks strong male villagers to help her on
her quest to defeat the Strigoiaca. However, none of the
men she tests by wrestling them hold up for long as each
submits as soon as she locks them up. Camille informs her
mentor Professor Beatrix Grasu that these men would only
die if they challenge the five female vampires that she
wants to capture.
Also in town is vampire hunting mercenary Elijah Sargent
who has an international reputation for killing the
nightcrawlers. He and Camille disagree on tactics as he
insists they cannot be cured of their hunger for human
blood. However, Camille disagrees based on Dr. Grasu's
research and her hope to save her former lover Griff who
has been converted to the night life.
THE HUNTRESS is a wonderful exhilarating vampiric romance
that never slows down once Camille and Elijah face off on
the mission. The story line is action-packed, but the cast
understands the varying motives that drive the two heroes
to face the undead. The support cast augments the tale by
enabling the audience to feel they are in modern day
Transylvania with the vampiric Strigoiaca just a bite away.
The final twist makes for quite a confrontation that will
send romantic horror fans with the emphasis on the
supernatural seeking future paranormal collaborations
between Elijah and Camille.
