Overview

A child is born...into the final showdown of Vampire and Hunter

The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child… Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.

The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.

Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.

While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter, and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man.

    The third book in the Blood Hunters series is a mesmerizing vamp

    The third book in the Blood Hunters series is a mesmerizing vampire romance.
    Refusing to ally with the undead, legendary vampire hunter Konrad, now goes his own way slaughtering vampires across the Europe.  He heads to Britain in the search of a dangerous instrument that may help him in his obsessive war with the overlord Saloman but he’ll need the help a vampire.  Maggie stays aloof from her own kind, but she sees much more that anger and cruelty in Konrad and makes her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past even if he does threaten her heart and everything she believes in. Meanwhile, the vampire world plan for the arrival of their King and Elizabeth’s child and the unveiling is almost at hand with the help of a journalist.
    This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the reader on their toes with action, suspense, drama, romance and several sexy and manipulative vampires.  The author brings the thrilling story to life with vivid images and strong and bewitching characters that are easily related and that grab the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go.
    The attraction between Maggie and Konrad radiates heat from every page thought their relationship is fraught with conflict and adversity. The author conveys the passion and emotions with intense details that makes it easy to understand each of their motivations. The sex scenes scorch the reader with the red hot passion that flows between these two and the reader can’t help but get caught up in their tempestuous relationship.
    The author has created a fascinating world of vampires that captures the imagination with multiple conflicts and events, entertaining characters and some humorous snarky dialogue that gives readers a few chuckles mixed into the adrenalin pumping action and stimulating romances.  So far I have really enjoyed this series and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    This review is from: Blood Descent (Book Three of the Blood Hunters Series) (Kindle Edition)
    I love Marie Treanor. I read this book because I love Marie Treanor. I read this book because it was the third book in the Blood Hunter Series. The problem was I got very upset when I read the first chapter and realized that this book was about Konrad, a vampire hunter that you will know very well if you've read the 2 previous books in the series. I thought, oh no, I HATE KONRAD. He's a sleazeball. He's CRAZY. I don't want him to have a happy ending!!!!! However, because this was a book by an author I love, I persevered and I am so happy I did. This is the story of Konrad, a vampire hunter and Maggie, a vampire. Doesn't sound like it's going to have a happy ending does it? If you haven't read the first 2 books in this series, this book stands alone and it does it well. If you have read the first 2 books, it makes it, at times, easier because you know all the returning characters and their histories. Then again, as I said earlier, sometimes it makes it harder. I have to say that it is very difficult for me to change my mind about an important character who I have grown to despise, but as usual, Marie does her job as a writer and does it AMAZINGLY WELL!!!!! I loved this book because it makes you realize why Konrad is the type of man he is and how hard it is for him to reconcile his history and what he has become with what other people expect him to be.
    Marie, you did it yet again!

    I love this series and the one that came before it. So I was very happy when we got to Konrad's book. I couldnt wait to find out what was going to happen with him. He is such an interesting character with all the changes that have gone on in his life and the purposes of the hunters.

    In this volume we find out more about Konrad and his abilites. We discover more about what happened to change him into the merciless vampire hunter that he has become.

    At the same time we are introduced to Maggie. While Maggie is a vampire, she doesnt act how Konrad believes a vampire should act. This comes to cause great conflict as he has to work with her to get closer to his goal. But at times has trouble remembering why he should hate her.

    Maggie believes Konrad is not a lost cause to the vampire/hunter peace. And as we watch them interact and get to know one another we hope as well that she is right and is able to overcome the ideas that have come to run his life.

    This was an excellent story in the series about the legendary hunter team. The characters are interesting, the story flows and you cant help but keep reading to find out what happens next. I am hoping there will be more in this world coming and am looking forward to seeing whats next.
