I really, really was tempted to choose Storm’s Heart for my pick of the week, but that one seems to be on everyone’s radar already. So instead, I went with my second choice. Blood Hunt is the fifth book of Shannon K. Butcher‘s Sentinel Wars series, and doesn’t get quite as much attention as a lot of other paranormal romance series. The set up and world is a bit different, but I have been happy with all of the previously released books. The cast of characters in this one is vast, with great potential for quite a few more stories. And, no one is safe from meeting a violent end, which has surprised me more than once.
Hope appeared out of nowhere, naked and alone, a woman without past. The only thing she knows is that she is imbued with a strange power. It’s in her blood. And two men want to possess it.
One is Logan, a Sanguinar demon-fighter who needs Hope’s essence to survive. As a vampire he’s well-equipped to find her a like-blooded mate whose progeny could sustain his race for generations. The other is Krag, a Synestryn lord whose desire is to enslave Hope, and drain her of the lifeforce. With it he could control humanity forever.
When Hope and Logan both fall prey to Krag, a powerful desire grows between them. But is it enough to thwart their captor’s diabolical plan and his demon warriors, and survive a vampire’s destiny written in blood?
Another book, Dying Wish, will follow next March.
