In this much-anticipated third installment of the V V Inn series, our sexy couple journeys to Argentina, bringing half their seethe along for the ride.

Vivian and Rafe venture into the Seat of Darkness, the Tribunal's base, to uncover who's plotting against and why. From a cold, windy island off the southern Argentine coast, to the decadence of Buenos Aires, the group has plenty to keep their attention--seductive twins, deadly games, and a bunch of bloodsucking fiends who hate our much-loved, despotic innkeeper enough to see her dead.

Asa and Jon stay in Alaska, to manage the famous inn as it opens doors to a new type of guest. Visiting werewolves go on their first exploration of the property, looking for big game--hormones run high and shots ring out across the tundra. Soon, the hunters become the hunted and the peaceful getaway resembles a battleground.

How many will survive the next five days and will they ever be the same again?

Warning: This book contains violence, blood, and sex and is not intended for readers under 18.

OMG!!! This is a series that has been on my TBR list, but I never quite got around to it. I’m so glad the next one is due out soon. I LOVE these books. They are hysterical, sensuous, snarky, sexy, funny, tender, and did I mention snarky? Vivian and I would be good friends. She has the snarky snide comment down to perfection. I can just see us sitting in the dull business meeting, in the very back, making snide comments to each other. Or people watching… again making snide comments to each other. Well, except for the fact that she’s a fictional character, a vampire, and probably wouldn’t give me the time of day. These books made me laugh out loud (a rare and therefore treasured treat) and left my husband with a sleepy smile. Keep your special someone close when you read these books, Vivian can not only project on her guests at The V.V. Inn, but also on the reader. Yummy. I give these books 5 out of 5 clouds and a chili pepper rating of 8, dangerously hot. This product or book may have been distributed for review; this in no way affects my opinions or reviews.

As a huge fan of the series I expected nothing but great things from this book. Yet again C.J. Ellisson shocked and awed me. The series, which spans the genres of supernatural fiction and erotica, has progressively developed with each installment and Big Game adds more complexity to the characters while revealing more about the mysterious past of the sexy and powerful female vampire and her new seethe. If you loved Vampire Vacation and The Hunt, you will be surprised and enthralled with this latest installment of The VV Inn series. If you haven't read the others, buy all three because once you start, you will need to read on. If you love vampire fiction and/or supernatural erotica/romance, I guarantee you will love this series.

Have read the first two books in the series and when this one came out I made myself wait and re-read the first two again before reading this one just to have everything fresh in my mind. And yes, the first two were worth re-reading and Big Game was even better than I expected, and I was expecting really good to begin with. Ms. Ellisson's writing has only improved with each book written and in this one you get two excellent story-lines happening. I was really satisfied with the ending and am already anticipating reading her next book in the series once it get written.

I enjoyed the book a great deal. Whether they like it or not you really got to see a bit more of what the characters can be without the center of their universe to control everything.

First of all, let me say that I don't normally read paranormal books. Next, let me say that this series drew me in and captured me big time! I read the first book in the series and I was very intrigued with the characters, and it has just gotten better with each book. This third book is a great continuation of the story and it just makes me wonder what is going to happen next. But don't worry, it doesn't leave it at a cliffhanger. This story is resolved and I think most people will agree with me that technically there doesn't 'need' to have another book, it's just that we all 'want' another book. And after you give this series a chance, you will see what I mean. The writing keeps improving with each book and the story line is fun. It's not simplistic but it's not something that is hard to read either. The different points of view are fun, I have always enjoyed seeing what everyone was thinking. The only thing that might be considered a drawback happens when you have to stop reading in the middle of a chapter and forget which character is speaking then. The best solution to that of course, is to just read it in one sitting. So send the kids off to school or a friend's house and pick up this book. You might want to send them off anyway as this is not a kid friendly book. It does have some graphic sex scenes but they are spicy and juicy, not dirty and nasty. Five stars! I can't wait for the next book. I hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Searching for the Truth! This is the third book in the V V Inn series, and as usual a great read. It is a definite page turner. This is extremely well written in the POV of 6 people. I don't know of many people who can pull this off to keep someone interested, but C.J. has done a wonderful job of it. I can not wait to read the next book in the series. While leaving Jon and Asa in Alaska to manage the Inn, Vivian/Dria and Rafe travel to Argentina along with some members of her Seethe. Thins are not going as planned in Argentina as she finds out that Coraline remembers Dria's abilities. Meanwhile Jon and Asa are responsible for the visiting Pack of wolves while someone is hunting too close to the Inn.

The third book to the VV Inn series was very good. I enjoyed the two different stories going at the same time, and I really enjoy how the chapters are told from different characters points of view. Although this was a wonderful book (and I do plan on continuing to read this series)I felt as though the stories were only told in part. Both story lines were great but because there were two stories going in one book they seemed incomplete. I didnt feel as though I knew everything that was going on and at times it seemed something was missing. The same passion that I noticed in the first two books was slightly lacking in the third book for me at least. I think CJ Ellison is a wonderful author and will continue to read her work. I have high hopes for her next book in this series and cant wait for it to come out.

Book 3 of the V V Inn series does not disappoint, in fact, it draws you in and keeps you interested and invested in the characters till the very end. (and even after that) The scenes, the characters and the writing wrap around you and make you love the whole package it creates. Wonderful job, CJ, you have a gift!

If you love vampires and werewolves with a sprinkling of love and erotica and the necessary horror these books are for you. Big Game is the third and newest of the series and takes you on a tumultuous journey of thrills, chills and emotions. There are two stories which tell of betrayal,death and revenge which keep you intrigued, strum at your heart strings and have you crossing your fingers (toesand anyting else you can cross). I found myself never wanting the story to end and wondering how I will cope with having to wait for the next book. With each book you get to learn a little more of the key characters and how they came to join Vivian's seethe which offers you a feeling of familiarity and friendship. C.J. Ellisson has found an original and refreshing recipe for Vampire and Werewolf tales which I hope will continue for a long time. Thank you C.J.

LOVED IT!!! Well C.J. did it again!! I loved this story. I am loving how the charaters are growing, and getting to know them is a delight. I can't wait to see where C.J. takes them next time. Highly recommended :)

This third novel definitely doesn't disappoint. While it travels further away from the premise in the first book of fulfilling the desires and fantasies of vampire guests, this book contains a lot of action and still has a lot of very steamy moments throughout, even in dangerous situations. Vivian and Rafe head to Argentina with a few members of their seethe and crew to make a surprise visit to the Tribunal's base, the Seat of Darkness, to try to uncover who is plotting to destroy them and why they are causing so much trouble for Vivian. At the same time, Jon and Asa are in Alaska during the summer months, opening the inn to werewolf clientele so they can hunt big game. But soon they discover that someone else is hunting them, while Vivian and Rafe realize they've taken on more than they can handle in Argentina and everyone starts doubting which vampires and workers they've encountered in this country can actually be trusted. Even throughout the danger, new love connections are made or deepened and everyone still gets to enjoy a nice release or two, to ease the tension of being in life-threatening situations, even though those lives seem to be more durable. I could hardly put the book down, it's a great read, going back and forth easily between points-of-view of those in Argentina and those in Alaska, both storylines moving along together, with intensity ratcheting up equally as the pressure mounts and the stakes are raised in each situation. Can they all come out alive, or undead? I definitely recommend this book, but not to those under 18, because of the sexually explicit scenes that the warning on the back of the book tantalizingly promises.

I hate that I read so fast! This was another great book and now I have to wait for the next one. If you have not read her other books, you must read those, too!

Meet Vivian, a 580 year old vampire and her human husband, Rafe. They both run an Alaskan resort the V.V. Inn in where vampires can truly be themselves, as long as they follow Vivian’s rules. However, this summer, the Inn will be in the hands of Jonathan, Vivian’s werewolf, and Asa, vampire head of security and the newest member of Vivian’s seethe play host to some werewolves. As the pack descends upon the inn, it seems that something has been pre-arranged: at the same time, something or someone sinister has other plans for the pack. Vivian, Rafe, and half of her seethe travel to Argentina to meet with the Ancients and to find out is planning the demise of Vivian and those close to her. However, whoever is set on taking Vivian out along with everyone she holds dear, should never underestimated the power of survival and above all, love. C.J. Ellisson’s newest V.V. Inn is one of her best, full of twists and turns, humor, adult ‘spice’ and all the while keeping you at the edge of your seat.

C.J. Ellisson has another winner with Big Game. Dria and Rafe leave for Argentina with members of their seethe. The werewolves decide it would be a good time to do a little hunting. Without giving too much away, I ask you, who is doing the hunting? While in Argentina all hell breaks loose. If you want to know what happens, don't hesitate.....get this book. It don't get much better. I have read the previous two books in the series and all I can say is keep them coming! C.J. you rock! I hope you will continue this series because I haven't had my fill yet.

C. J. Ellisson has written another wonderful saga continuing the tale of Alexandria and Rafe and the VV Inn. While the master's away, the werewolves want to come and play. They arrive thinking they'll have fun hunting big game. Only thing... well that would be giving too much away. Mean while, in Argentina, Alexandra doesn't realize she's the one being hunted. There are so many twists and turns, this reader didn't want to put the book down. Which made it hard for the family that wanted to eat every once in a while. Another great read from C.J. and hopefully soon, we'll get another installment of this great series.

Ms Ellisson is just getting better! This third book in the VV series gifts us with two complete plot lines. There is one story line going on with the weres at the Inn and also a seperate story line involving Dria, Rafe, etc. as they confront the Tribunal. However, it is never confusing. The character develpment is first rate. I couldn't help but cheer for some characters, with one actual fist pump toward the end, while detesting others. I also very much enjoyed the story as told from the different characters point of view. The different points of view just leave me craving more about the individual characters' stories. I understand this is more difficult to write, but boy is it worth it! This book is for adults as it is "spicy", though not quite as much as her others. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal story along with a little spice.

I started reading Big Game on the train to work, should have learnt my lesson with the first two books. It was amazing, could not wait to get back on the train and into the book. C.J. Ellisson did it again with pull that surrounds you and and scenes that excite you. And with the different POVs its several sides of the same story and you want to get back to know what Rafe is doing but whats going on in VV head right now is ARHHHH. Amazing simply AMAZING

I won this book on the GoodReads First Reads. Since it was the third book in the series I wanted to read the previous books to fully enjoy it. Ok, I know the author considers this to be her best book in the series and I have to agree. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the previous books as well, but reading this one had me more on the edge of my seat. I sincerely hated to have it end. The revelation of who is behind the tribunal attacks was interesting and I can't wait for the next book. I like the main characters more and more and enjoyed seeing a new side to Rafe that I expected based in his acceptance of Vivian and hints at his own past. Drew really appears to be torn between his past Victorian human self and that of being a vampire however he does appear to be steadfast in his support of the seethe. I do wonder what's up with Cy though. Like I said, can't wait until the next one.

Another fantastic read in this series! This book "Big Game" stays a couple of months after the previous book (The Hunt) ends.  Again not only do we see the story through just Vivian and Rafe's point of view but we also see it through the different points of views of other seethe members.  In this story we find Vivian and Rafe traveling to Argentina with Paul and Drew to see if they can find out who is conspiring against Vivian. Then we find Asa, Jon, Erik and Paul back in Alaska who ended facing some trouble of there own. Enjoyed how the story flowed from the beginning to the end. Can't wait to read the next book.

I will admit that this was not my type of read. If you love shifters and LOTS of sex, and bloody violence, you will rate this book higher. I rated it lower because I felt not enough was focused on the story, just on the mating and shifting of the characters. he ending, the last 20% of the book was exciting and left the series open to continue in interesting ways.
