I like how all the secondary characters add to the story. No one is just filler in this book. The action is very good and there are some very scary elements with the Senestryn. They are just gross and disturbing. I know that I am way behind on this series, but I really appreciate how SKB continues to grow this series.
I look forward to future volumes, and I am still eager for Tynan to get his own story. I blame my sister for getting me into this book series. Sorry not sorry. Overall Rating: 4. View all 4 comments. Quick rundown Very refreshing change of pace. Just wish more of the Sanguinar characters other than Tynan played a part in this. We don't get much back story or history lesson about the mysterious Sanguinars till the very last page which was a missed opportunity IMO. Your hero is a Sanguinar why withhold all that information till the very last minute? Missed the boat there.
Andreas: New leader of the Slayers. Very intrigued by this g Quick rundown Very intrigued by this guy. He has a ton of presence and sounds sexy. Love the pointy ears but why the hell are they called the Slayers?
I'm intrigued by his bargain with Joseph and the trade they made. I like the possibility of him with the Gerai human Carmen. His reaction to her was very telling. As long as she gets her act together and stops acting like a selfish indignant brat. Her flippant ungrateful attitude towards her adoptive father Joesph is super annoying and over-the-top. The poor man. She thinks he accepted to be her adoptive father out of obligation and she's offended by that.
You finally got what you wanted and now you're unhappy with it? The only reason she offers herself as part of the trade with the Slayers is to get away from Joseph and Dabyr, never mind the fact that the man has given her everything she could ask for and took her in when she had no place else to go. She jumped at this opportunity to get away from Joseph. What a peach. If it wasn't for Andreas I would have wished for someone to chuck their shoe at this twit and be done with it.

Nicholas: the scarred Theronai with the beautiful kind eyes. He's too sweet to be left alone. Please author fix it. What I wasn't impressed with: How many different kind of Synestrians are there? Every time someone has an encounter with these monsters they are described differently. Some look like wolves with shark teeth, others are human-like with no face or missing fingers with odd joints and scaly patchy skin, some are like snakes, some are giant centipedes, dolphin-like fishes with tentacles, giant walking roaches think Men in Black , dogs with green glowing eyes, etc.
These things come in all shapes and sizes and are continuously changing in looks and breed in every single book. Is there a reason for this? At first I assumed there were sub species, different kinds, but now I'm beginning to think Butcher makes them up as she goes along for the hell of it. If they are interbreeding or using hosts for bodies then it needs to be explained, cleared up. This is 5 books in, the world building really needs to be better than this.
Nika- WTH is wrong with you? I like this girl but her sister Andra's overprotective obsessive-controlling idiocy is rubbing off on her. It made me want to smack her. Her whiny ungrateful obnoxious attitude towards him got under my skin the most, acting like Tynan did nothing to help Tori. Are you kidding me? She pretty much was treating him like a leper and a servant just like some of Theronai guys do all the time.
Left a bad taste in my mouth. Not everything is about your sister Nika so settle down. Still not a big fan of how Butcher writes her heroines. The scene I just mentioned with Nika and that whole drama with Carmen is perfect example of that. Everyone has their stupid moments I get it. But one-track minded denseness and selfish tendencies are one too many for my tastes. So far out of the entire ensemble cast Nika, Grace and Hope are the only tolerable root-worthy ladies.

Despite the fact - please don't shoot me for this - that I've had a hard time keeping the Sanguinar straight as individuals, I was really looking forward to this story shedding some light shed on the blood drinking Sanguinar Race and their secret project.

I've always wondered why the Theroni warriors were so distrustful of and so unwilling to give their blood to their Sanguinar allies, especially in light of the fact that those allies' healing powers have come in handy so many times through out the series. After getting a little ways into the story and armed with a little more knowledge of the Sanguinar's struggle, I just couldn't see how Logan was ever going to get a happily ever after with Hope - a woman with uber yummy blood, some not quite human powers, and a big mental block in her head where her past should be - and when I got to the the last few chapters I was afraid his story line was going 'to be continued' and not wrapped up until the next book.
There did end up being closure for them here - insert big sigh of relief her - though it's sort of rushed.
- The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Hatteras.
- Turning Blood Red:The Fight for Life in Cooleys Anemia!
- How to Find That Book You've Spent Years Looking For?
- The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance.
On a side note about how the story was put together, Logan's story does get most of the screen time but with a lot more going on in Blood Hunt than just Logan and Hope, often a scene between them would ramp up to an exciting point and then shift to another part of the story - because, as was the case in the last book, Blood Hunt is an ensemble piece.
In addition to the main thread with Logan and Hope : we briefly touch up with Caine and Sybil - who is coping with the changes brought on by her mother's death - and with Nika and Maddox - but only in conjunction with Nika's completely damaged sister Tori. We get a small bit with Jackie - who is apparently every warrior's match but who wants no man - and get just enough of the soulless Iain to make me hope that somehow there is a loophole for him in the future.
There is also a new wrinkle added to the series as naked Slayers come a calling, and the story has a few other small bits with other characters woven in here and there. However, even with all those threads weaving through the story, I was slightly disappointed that the formerly paralyzed Torr and Grace, the woman who sacrificed so that he could be whole, never come out of the background - guess Butcher might be saving them for a book where their thread is the main one.
So, bottom line is that I liked Blood Hunt, though it didn't knock the previous book out of my favorite-of-the-series spot, and since Butcher has a lot of balls in the air story-wise, it will be interesting to see what happens next. As far as starting here if you are new to the series, I wouldn't recommend it, and old fans who haven't done a series reread before starting Blood Hunt might want to stop about half way into the book and do a second read through of the character list at the front of the book - it's easier to digest somehow after having seen the characters interacting together a bit.
Dec 26, Irene rated it really liked it. Now I can truthfully say that I read all the previous books just to see more of Logan and Tynan, though they are manipulative bastards. And I am really glad that at least Logan found his better part ;. View all 3 comments.
May 16, Tori rated it it was amazing Shelves: review-for-smexybooks , arc. Butcher once again delivers a dark, gritty, action packed story that held me spellbound.chlorevebney.tk
A smooth storyline and continuously evolving arc engages the reader and sets a fast pace. The premise revolves around Logan and Hope; two fantastic characters whose innate loyalties often overrides their wants and needs. This book is a mind blowing whirlwind to read as Ms. Hope is strong, intelligent, and street savvy. Abandoned as a child, she grew up on the streets. She has made a life for herself as an artist but never forgot where she came from and spends time helping in the shelter where she was raised.
Logan and his brother Tynan have spent hundreds of years, the bearers of an cruel curse, to bring together compatible mates that will ensure them a race of humans whose blood will keep them alive. When Logan chances upon Hope, he takes her blood and realizes that it is the ultimate essence and he will do anything to possess her for Project Lullaby.
