Hunter’s Prey is the follow-up to Moira Roger’s fantastical Wilder’s Mate and the second novel in their western paranormal series with a steampunk twist, the Bloodhounds.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Hunter has survived being caged and forcibly turned into a bloodhound by vampires but can he make it through his first new moon as a free man? For a bloodhound the new moon means three days of an insatiable sexual appetite and if those carnal needs aren’t being fulfilled Hunter will go mad. Ophelia, Satira’s friend (Wilder’s Mate) who was once a working girl, is now managing the bloodhound’s house and she is the only woman Hunter wants but he refuses to satisfy his needs with her for fear of hurting her. But when she ends up being the only one the beast inside him accepts will he succumb and if he does will either of them be able to walk away afterwards?
Ophelia’s new position is a little more demanding than she expected and her attraction to the bloodhound, Hunter, who doesn’t seem to want anything to do with her, does not make it any easier.
When vampires start enlisting humans and running drugs through Iron Creek though, Hunter and Ophelia must work together and confront more than just their enemies.
I love this fantastical world that Moira Rogers has created with the Bloodhounds where the old west and the paranormal collide. Throw in mechanical horses, un-reliable elevators and space-aged weaponry and you get a unique ride that you won’t want to get off of!
There is a lot of tension between Hunter and Ophelia. Hunter feels that Ophelia deserves so much better than him, a monster, and ignores his attraction to her for as long as he can. I’m not quite sure why Ophelia originally tried to deny her feelings for Hunter but by the time the new moon came around I was starting to get a feel for her and believe in her actions. Ophelia is exactly what Hunter needs, someone who can teach him how to get through these new experiences and help him like this new self he was forced to be. They balanced each other well and their time together during the full moon was beyond hot – wowza!
Some action surrounds the romance with vampires, drugs and corrupt humans as well suspense in the form of two bloodhounds sent by the Guild to check out Hunter’s stability and the death of their best inventor (Wilder’s Mate) who was secretly turned into a vampire and hides in the basement.
Though Hunter’s Prey took me a little bit longer to get into then Wilder’s Mate I still enjoyed the read. All of the characters and the series arc are intensely captivating and I look forward to more installments!
