Hunter by Night (Chronicles of Yavn)


Hunter by Night, Elisabeth Staab
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Vampires, romance – I’m in….:) This was an enjoyable read, not too heavy, some decent action and a real story and hot romance to back it up. I haven’t read the first two books but a quick read of the descriptions and it was easy to follow this one anyway. I think reading them first would enhance the enjoyment of this one though. Too many books too little time 😦
So, we’ve human hater vampire Lee, 700 years old, and holding a grudge all that time, blaming them for the death of his family. He’s guarding the queen’s best friend, human Alexia. Poor Lexi, she’s been friends with the queen back in the human world when they were just two carefree people, and now the queen is with the king, and having his child Lexi is stuck in a world where she feels she doesn’t fit. Lee’s not the only human hater here, she’s made a few friends but in the main she’s lonely, lost, and doesn’t know what she’s going to do. It doesn’t help that she’s a huge crush on Lee too….and yet all she seems to do is irritate him at every turn. That’s just the sort of pairing I love – where they have to work to find a way to each other, where there are obstacles at every turn. Its fun seeing just how they make it, and there’s always drama when things go wrong, and you know by now how much I love, love, love lots of that!
Alongside their romance is the very real feeling of danger, of looming war threatening both humans and the vampires, the difficulties of who to trust, of whether “my enemies enemy is my friend” is really true when dealing with both Guardian and Wizard enemies….There’s lots of action from different sources, and romance problems between other couples too. Lee may be 700 years old but he’s still got things to learn 🙂
Its a great read, lots to occupy my mind and make me think. It feels like a real romance with genuine problems, and all that action alongside it is very much how real life is. The world doesn’t stop just because couples have problems 🙂 When Lexi and Lee do get together – wow – they are hot! Scorching, and very sensual and steamy…then they argue – again and again. Lexi had a tough upbringing and can’t stop her mouth from running even when she knows its not a good idea, and Lee simply isn’t used to that. He’s a huge mind shift to make to realise a humans viewpoint can be very valuable. It’s priced at £4.27 for 384 pages so its a lovely long novel, and its all relevant words, no padding and fluff…..
Stars: Four, one that it would be great to read the whole series back to back and I look forward to more from Elisabeth.

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 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.
