Synopsis: A child is born…into the final showdown of Vampire and Hunter
The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child… Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.
The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.
Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.
While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter, and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man.
Bookish Things: 292 pages. The cover of this one doesn’t quite hit the mark for me. Still pretty, just not as much as books 1 and 2.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.13
I struggled through this one, I never really liked Konrad’s character to begin with, and while Maggie was a much more likeable character, she just didn’t do it for me.
I hated all the guilt-filled flirting that happened for the first 60% of the book. It was boring, repetitive and just smacked of filler to me.
I did enjoy the scene with Bela in the alley, quite hot!
Again, the same as the last book, the original cast (Michaela and Istavan) carried the story.
I’ve got book #4 on my TBR list, I am giving Marie one more chance to ensnare me in the Blood Hunter books, if she fails again, that will be the end of my reading this series.
A few thing I noticed:
53% – You took me (by) surprise.
85% – …her mouth on (delete on, add in) a snarl.
