Reading Level: Young Adult
Hunter Wild is the youngest in a long line of elite vampire hunters, a legacy that is both a blessing and a curse at the secret Helios-Ra Academy, where she excels at just about everything. Thanks to her friendship with Kieran Black, Hunter receives a special invitation to attend the coronation of Helena Drake, and for the first time, she sees the difference between vampires that must be hunted and vampires that can become friends-or even more. When students at the academy fall victim to a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack from within. She will need someone she can trust to help her save the future of Helios-Ra . . . help that shockingly comes in the form of Quinn Drake, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire. Who said senior year would be easy?
Spoiler free for any of the books in the series:
I love this series! I wouldn't think it would be for me going by the covers and even by the descriptions, it just sounds kind of unoriginal. But it's not! This series is a blast! It's full of awesome characters, lots of sexual tension, and loads of kick ass action. They are all fast reads that move along at a very fast pace. Once I start reading them I have a hard time putting them down. If you've been hesitant because of the reasons I mentioned I urge you to at least give them a try.
Spoilery for previous books in the series:
I loved this one! We got most of the story from Hunters point of view so lots of the Helios -Ra school. And actually most of the plot point has to do with the school as something mysterious and deadly is going on. Hunter is determined to figure out why her friends are getting sick and why so many strange things are occurring. She's also been noticing the uber sexy Quinn Drake, and although he's distracting he's turns out to be a great ally in figuring this mystery out.
I really liked the way the relationship between Hunter and Quinn progresses. I was very thankful that there wasn't back and forth about liking, not liking, etc. It was fairly conflict free so I wasn't screaming at them to 'just get together already'. Definitely a bonus for me!
I just got Bleeding Hearts for review and am super excited to continue the story and figure out what's going on with Solange who is displaying some very off symptoms...
