Hunt the Darkness, Alexandra Ivy.

 

Hunt the Darkness, Alexandra Ivy.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
So, this is book eleven in the Guardians series…and as I’d read book one ages ago, and somehow never got to the rest I wondered how I’d get on with it. No problem is the answer 🙂 Though there are references to other events and people Alexandra makes it easy to keep up, and it seems each book is a complete novel, just how I love it. One day I’ll get to the rest!
For this one though I really enjoyed the story. Its got the right blend of magic and mayhem, sex and sensuality for me. Roke starts off resenting Sally, she’s nothing like he’d envisaged for a mate. He wanted sweet and compliant, and she’s fiery and outspoken. She’d caught him in her spell accidentally, and as she was trying to escape capture at the time I could understand why she’d tried everything in her resources to get away, especially given the distrust of witches so many vampires have…She needs help from her father though to break the spell, and she doesn’t know who he is. Still, though she’s got feeling for Roke, her pride and sense of fairness makes her search every avenue for her father. Roke is attracted to her, and sexually they are on fire…he keeps telling himself its just the spell, but as Sally keeps getting into danger, and the journey continues, he learns more about her and her troubled childhood, his feelings are changing and he doesn’t want the bond broken. Sally is stubborn though, she has strong feelings for him but thinks – knows really – his clan won’t accept her, and continues her search despite the increasing dangers. She is convinced its just the spell making him think he loves her, and that she’s not right for him, not clever enouygh, beautiful enough and certainly not compliant enough! Roke can’t persuade her to stop the search, so stays with her and they get into more and more dangers, and grow closer and closer. Then she finds him…the father who can break the spell, and what she learns about her birth is heartbreaking…
Its a book full of action, vampires, witches, gargoyles, Fae and other supernaturals…I love this sort of fantasy where there’s romance and danger, journeys and endings. Its a fun read, and kept me entertained til the very end.
Stars: Four and a half, I really enjoyed it and maybe if I’d read all the series I’d have gone five. As it was I felt its a little light, and maybe what I missed was that connection of the story that runs through series like these. My fault, not the book.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
