    Donna is happily married to Hunter and raising their first child

    Donna is happily married to Hunter and raising their first child, Lucinda. Best friend Mo is doing her best to raise her son, not quite alone. She's a frequent visitor and is now seeing Trent. All is not peace and harmony though. Mo still doesn't like Hunter and the feeling is mutual. She also doesn't like Donna's newest friend, Jacqelina, whom she feels is up to no good. Of course, Mo's right.

    Lucinda is kidnapped and Donna gets a visit from the disgraced Underworld goddess of beauty. Alicia tells her she will need the help of the demon Howie Evil to rescue her daughter. Instead of waiting for help from the vampires she and Hunter share the house with like she was told, Donna rushes off like the fearful mother she is to demand his help. The contrary, ornery demon comes through, not only restoring Lucinda to her mother, but rescuing the Prophecy Reader as well.

    Howie is such a character. He owns a gun shop and creates special weapons for his supernatural customers. He also hates "stupid" humans. Of course, there aren't any smart ones, but that's beside the point. Howie kept me in stitches. He is so hateful you pretty much have to love him. His behavior is contrary to what he says. He makes it his goal to keep the stupid humans afraid of him, but that doesn't last for very long. Howie is full of Bernard's signature wit. Even though he's a supporting character, Howie is one of my favorite in this story. No matter how rude or offensive he gets, I just can't help smiling.

    The Child of the Prophecy and the Prophecy Reader must be protected at all costs. That job seems to be much easier than convincing Donna's and Mo's parents of the need to move in with Donna and Hunter for their own safety. They also have to convince their parents demons and vampires exist.

    There is no doubt Dawn of the Hunter is just as engaging as the first book. Bernard has done it once again. There were a couple of missed editing/proofreading errors (less than a handful) that created a hiccup in my reading, but I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment of the Midnight Hunter Trilogy. It was definitely worth my time to reread this book. The 3-star rating is strictly due to the missed errors, otherwise I would have happily given this book 4 stars.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Just when I thought this series couldn't get any

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better, in walks Howie Evil *wicked grin* Damn, if anyone could make a crude, foul-mouthed, human hating demon so delectable, it's Bonnie Bernard!

    I was a little disappointed that Hunter was scarce from the beginning of the book, but thank goodness Howie was there to fill the "sexy as hell" gap and for some reason, every time Howie made an appearance in this book, I pictured Joe Manganiello!

    Now I know some people may look at Howie to be a disgusting, underworld demon who loves to beat the crap out of stupid humans, but there were definitely times when I wished I was Cassie, or even poor Donna! I wouldn't mind getting to know Mr Evil a whole lot better, especially after a few drinks *wicked, wicked grin*. But Howie isn't only sexy, he is funny. I loved his quick witted remarks and comebacks. For all his faults, there was just nothing to dislike about him!

    Okay, enought about Howie *sigh* Evil, and back to my review :) The second book in The Midnight Hunter trilogy upped the ante in so many ways and it was another exciting ride alongside the much loved character from book one. Donna is forced to team up with Howie *sigh* Evil in order to save her daughter from Stephen and this sets off a whole bunch of events that could mean the end of the world as we know it. A war looms between the forces of darkness, one that will tip the scales of Order and Choas. It is up to Cassie, the bullheaded human, who blabbed about her Underworld prophecy discovery all over her blog, to give the answers. Only Cassie is anything but a willing participant in the whole mess.

    Hunter is still as alluring as in the first book but he tends to be a little too overprotective. Although he has Donna's best interests at heart his stubborness pushes her into even more dangerous situations. I really love how real their relationship is. They have all these real emotions that come with loving someone with all your heart and soul. There was jealousy, on both ends, fear of losing your soulmate, they got angry at each other and Donna even went as far as telling little white lies just to find the breathing space she needed. On the flip side there were some really warm and fuzzy moments. Moments that were just so perfect that the love between them was palpable.

    There are many exciting twists in the plot - from Jacqelina, to Howie's true "dual-sided" nature, and to top it all off, the heart breaking surprise delivered to Donna and Hunter regarding Lucinda's soul. There are also some fantastic fight scenes in this book as well. For all their differences, it was great to see Human, Vampire and Demon alike, stand together when it was most needed to fight for what was right.

    This book is filled to the brim with action, love and sexy, underworld men. I've lost my heart to these amazing characters, and I'm over the moon excited to read book three.

    I received this book from the author to read and give an honest review.

    A great Sequel to Book 1 Midnight Hunter! I couldn't put it down! The author does a fantastic job at expanding on the great characters developed in the first book bringing them into more detail as the story of saving the world from the Underworld War continues.

    Donna starts off being a bit nerdy but motherhood and an overprotective Vampire spouse will do that to anyone. Once she sees the path she must travel and who must be at her side, there is no stopping her from saving the most precious thing in her life. Even if it means being nice and befriending a Demon! The dead return, new characters are introduced and even a new romance or two give this book a good lead into what is coming in the final book of the trilogy. The story line is not new but the Author puts her own personal twist on lore which gives the reader a new way of looking at how her version of the Underworld is something we have never experienced before.

    Again the story is filled with it all, romance, paranormal, Sci-Fy, and a bit of mystery too! A must read for Underworld followers... Bring on the Finale!

    I loved the first book in this series! I loved the author¿s wit

    I loved the first book in this series! I loved the author’s wit and quirky writing, loved the characters and especially loved Mo. Naturally, I was looking forward to reading book two and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Meeting up with now familiar characters from the first book in this series, was a blast! In “Dawn of the Hunter” the reader also gets to meet bad-ass demon Howie Evil – a last name which suits him perfectly. Howie is mean, favors guns to humans, has an appetite for human souls, is touchy about his ride, and his favorite demon is…well…Howie. Like it or not, Howie grows on you and soon he was one of my absolute favorite characters. I especially enjoyed his and Mo’s sarcastic, confrontational interactions.

    Donna once again proved to be a strong, take-charge character who kicks demon butt and who is a pillar of strength for her family. I absolutely adored Mo’s character in the first book because of her spunk and cynicism, and in this book she manages to take it up a notch, especially with Howie now in the picture. Cassie is another new character the reader will either love or hate. She hiccups when in distress, and is the proud owner of Thrasher – the meanest cat this side of hell.

    I enjoyed the story, the plot twists, the action, the in-your-face humor, and getting to be part of these characters’ lives again, I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    Dawn of the Hunter- Book two in the Midnight Hunter Trilogy

    I was not very impressed with this second story, it seemed that alot of things just didn't add up. I believe the story line was good but it was missing too much to fill it out. I still don't like Hunter or Donna, but still love Mo and Howie. There was alot of little things that made this book not great in my opinion. Alot of people may not see it or over look them but to me it's very important, for instance Lucinda's growth but yet her grandfather sees none of this, or she is still sleeping in a basinet? The fighting scenes were not really impressive and was hard to imagine. The parts where Jacqueline was involved just threw me, is Donna really that pathetic? I could go on about her but like I said I really don't like her at all. The war was not any kind of war at all, it was a small little fight that was quickly over and ended just to easily. I know that alot more details could have went into this and wish it had. I still enjoyed it cause I like to read between the lines and see what could have been written in there. I know sometimes authors have to cut things and I trully hate that! So with that all being said, I am still glad to have had the chance to read this and will gladly read the final story. I again just believe that this story had alot more potential but was not put into it for whatever reason.

    Dawn of the Hunter,” Book 2 of “The Midnight Hunter&

    Dawn of the Hunter,” Book 2 of “The Midnight Hunter” trilogy by Bonnie Bernard, finds Donna (McCormick) Deangelo living the life of her dreams, with a beautiful baby and an equally beautiful husband, but she still hasn’t quite absorbed all the lessons she should’ve learned the first time. Donna -- after all you’ve been through, why do you still think it’s okay to share personal information with a random stranger in the grocery store???? WE all knew that wasn’t going to end well, but I guess YOU had to find out the hard way. Obviously, Donna has a few more lessons to learn, but it sure is exciting to see what happens next and whether she and her loved ones can survive. The forces of evil are definitely out to get her, and she’s hanging by a thread. And again, there’s the ever fascinating Howie!

    Coming into her own...

    Review of Dawn of he Hunter by Bonnie Bernard

    Rating 5 stars

    This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

    Donna has finally gotten to marry her dream man and soulmate after centuries of trying. She is a new mommy with a bouncing baby to love on and raise. Her arch enemy was last seen in a pile of dust from Mo's staking should finally be goor huh???? Things in Donna's world never seem to turn out that way. Tuns out eeryone is going crazy about the prophecy that was written by the Gods a long time ago. It seems Donna's child is the center of all the hidden clues.
    This book starts the story just as the first one stopped off. While the first was centered around a powerful love story, this one has much more action with romantic overtones. I read it all wt one time! Even though there are demons its not a dark novel by any means. I like this one even more than the first. We get much more indepth looks at wach of the characters and learn how they tick. Even Donna's marriage is shown to have a mortal emotions and tendencies. Nice to see than even a perfect couoles get on each others nerves go over and pick it up!!!!

    It's now 3:30 in the morning and I just now finished Dawn of the

    It's now 3:30 in the morning and I just now finished Dawn of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard. This is book 2 in The Midnight Hunter Trilogy. Why am I still up at 3:30? Because I couldn't put the darn thing down! That's why! I'm hooked!

    This book starts up a few months after the point where we left off in Midnight Hunter. We don't get an easy introduction either. Right off the bat we find that Donna and Hunter's infant daughter, Lucinda, was stolen by Stephan, Hunter's brother who was previously thought to have been killed.

    Donna was visited by the goddess Alicia and instructed to seek help from the weapons dealer that I mentioned I wanted to meet in the last book! And I have to say, I wasn't disappointed! He is exactly as fascinating as I'd imagined, if not more so! On the way to their rescue mission, we are informed that a woman named Cassie has also gone missing. Cassie had found the lost copy of an Underworld Prophecy, and was able to translate it, making her a target for Underworld creatures.

    One of the things I found most interesting was watching that prophecy unravel. When I started to really learn about it, and the characters that were foretold to be involved, I couldn't help but wonder how in the world the author was going to pull it off without either having the characters destroy each other or having the whole thing be completely unbelievable for the reader. Yet again, I was pleasantly surprised. The author pulled it off beautifully.

    This book was much more fast-paced than the one before it. It had much more action, but not so much that it leaves the reader overwhelmed or confused. Just the right amount. It definitely kept my mind wondering and guessing what could possibly happen next, and definitely not in a bad way.

    Once again, I really have to give the author props for her characters. Bonnie Bernard definitely knows her characters, and she fleshes them out so well, they seem to hang around in your head long after you've put the book down.

    Hurry up and read!!

    Book 2 is just as good as book 1 - probably better because I lost more sleep since I couldn't put it down! The introduction of demons and a goddess was a kick-in-the-pants fun ride! I laughed out loud at some of the antics going on :) I am so glad that I found out about this series after it was already out because I don't have to wait to see what happens next. If I did, I think it would kill me! Love this series, LOVE this author!
