Book Review: Hunted by DB Reynolds (Blog Tour + giveaway)

Hunted: A Cyn & Raphael Novella (Vampires in America #6.5)
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.

This is bridge novella that connects Lucas (Vampires in America #6) to the next release Aden. It introduces us to Aden and sets the stage for the story arc. What I loved most about these bridge novellas is we get more Raphael and Cyn action. The novella is told from their POV and makes a perfect way to segue between books.

Reynolds does an excellent job of coming up with a quick and interesting, action packed storyline for Raphael and Cyn while advancing the series story arc. I personally don’t care for erotica, but if you like naughty vampire sex you will get plenty in Hunted. It was great to see Lucas and Kathryn again. I love Lucas’s mischievous personality and how he interacts with the always serious Raphael. Cyn and Kathryn hit it off and are both strong female characters. We meet Aden and he is a chauvinistic ass. He doesn't think much of women and believes they are best seen and not heard. It will be interesting to see him put in his place by a woman.

One thing I love about Reynolds’s vampires is the old school alpha vampire attitudes. They are violent and scary powerful, as in can turn lesser vampires to dust with just a thought. I like the direction the series arc is taking with the American vampires and the European ones. This is a great series if you like hot vampire sex, alphas and the women who tame them… sort of <G>.
