Donna, Hunter and all their friends have been enjoying a peaceful two years since the end of the Underworld war. That all changes when Ursula, a vengeful goddess of Chaos shows up making demands. Donna can either provide a lock of hair from each of the twins, or those she loves will start disappearing. Of course, she refuses, Josh and Jaz are the children of two of her best friends.
New characters have come out to play; the Trickster (who stole the original book of prophecy from Raoul and Frederick), Ursula, goddess of Chaos, and Mara (Somebody has a wife they thought had died.). Once again, not everyone is who they seem to be. Alicia (goddess of perfect female beauty) is back and sticking her cute nose in where it doesn't belong, at least according to the rules. But hey, what's a little rule bending if no one else finds out, right?
One by one, people important to Donna start disappearing, each one a little closer to home. Cassie is the first one to go missing and Howie and the kids aren't one bit happy. Bernard has really amped up the volume for the final book in the trilogy. In addition to people going missing, someone is messing with the minds of ordinary humans. Thanks to Ursula, the whole town has just gotten a lot crazier, more paranoid and she's not done yet.
This is the best book of the trilogy with some surprises at the end. I also hope that the ending was just a taste of another trilogy to come. If so, I'm definitely going to pick it up. There were a few errors, but overall, I enjoyed the book enough that I didn't want to see it end. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third and final book in the Midnight Hunter Trilogy. I loved it!
Donna Deangelo is a fantastic character. Not only is she a wife to a vampire, she is a loving mother to a beautiful baby girl. You would think that she deserves her happiness after all she's been through, but when she accidentally (or was it?) crashes her car into the Goddess of Chaos, all hell breaks loose.
I loved this series from the first page, so I have been eagerly wanting to read this book for a while now. I'm just sorry it took me so long to get to it.
The story continues two years after the end of the second book finished. I was quickly thrown back into the world of vampires, demons and goddesses. The story was imaginative and fast paced. I struggled to put it down! In fact, I read it in one sitting! I got to revisit some old characters, but I also met some new ones. Especially Lucinda (Donna and Hunter's daughter - half human/half vampire) and Jasmine and Joshua (Cassandra and Howie's twins - part human/demon/vampire). These characters are special in more ways than one. There is a prophesy to be solved, and the Underworld and Earth to save. This book has a MAJOR surprise right at the end. I was completely thrown! Never mind that this is the final book - I WANT MORE!!
Bonnie Bernard has written an amazing series that has touched me in many different ways. It's made my heart leap at the danger and thump with love, loss, hope and a lot of other emotions. I highly recommend this unique YA Paranormal Romance book (and series) if you love vampires, demons and goddesses. - Lynn Worton

The formerly unaware Donna Deangelo has finally gotten a clue, AND she’s learned to take matters into her own hands! Book 3 of “The Midnight Hunter” trilogy, “Final Hour of the Hunter,” continues the engrossing saga, but this time, the forces of evil have shown up with overwhelming power, and they don’t want just Donna and her child; they want the entire world. Even Howie’s at risk now…Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Cursed by Chaos
I was given a e-copy in exchange for my honest review, but would have gladly purchased a copy. The author hasn't failed me yet at keeping me in a trance with her writing and I am sure she never will.
Thing have changed for Donna and the gang since the last book. Life has been normal, well as normal as it can be with friends and family like Donna's. But life can't stay a walk in the park forever, unless the park is full of crazy people with weapons and a attitude from hell. Donna becomes cursed by chaos and chaos by any other name is, well.....a B***H! Donna has also grown and has learned to take care of things herself. She decides to take this situation in her own hands and refuses to bow down to chaos. Which basically means she has thrown everyone to the wolves, are in the situation, the hellhounds. People go missing, friends become enemies, and enemies become alliances in a blink of an eye. It is up to Donna to regain order to the hell created on earth. Everyone has to play the game of life, but no one knows which team each are playing on. There can only be one winner, but who will be on the winning side that survives complete chaos?
Loved the book!!! Unfortunately, it is the last book in the trilogy. I could read about the crazy and wild characters forever, but all good things must come to an end at some point. I hear rumor that there will be a spin off and I can hardly wait. As long as she keeps writing, I will continue to read whatever she creates. An author worth following!!!

I got this book for free from the author herself, to give an honest review.
Final Hour of the Hunter is at the moment I am asumming to be the last in this trilogy. I do hope the author makes another book that has the characters that have grown up and the old characters that have now important jobs.
This book once again had me from the first page. After I read the second book I was so ready to get into this book. Final Hour of the Hunter takes place 2 years after the second book, Lucinda is still growing up faster than normal children because she has inherited her father's dark gift of being a vampire. Donna is enjoying her life now since there is nothing bad going on. Cassie, and Howie are together. Everything is good until, one day Donna drives out to get dinner from the store and she crashes into something. She gets out to inspect, and there is nothing there, but when she gets back into her car a woman is in the back with her hellhounds. Her name is Ursula she is now the next problem for Donna and her family and friends to deal with. Just when everything was going great. Mortals or humans can not see Ursula. From the time she meets Ursula everything starts going down hill, her friends start disappearing, the human world has gone crazy and has the disease. No one is safe to trust. I was sad that there was an ending to this book lol, everything was flowing so perfectly. If you are looking to read about more kicking butt, and the paranormal then please give this a read! I know you will not be disappointed.
Out of this whole book I have to say my favorite little part or saying was this paragraph.
"Howie clenched the latest cigarette between his teeth and turned to face Ian. "Stupid human, do you see the sign in the door that reads Howie's Gun Shop?"
Ian nodded begrudgingly.
"Three guesses who I am."
"A Crazy mother f----?"
All I could do was laugh and laugh. If you have not read the other two books I suggest you do it. Howie is trip all on his own. And is a great character that Bonnie wrote. I truly enjoyed reading about the children growing up and seeing the marriage of an immortal and a vampire, and getting little surprises along the way.

Today I finished Final Hour of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard. This is the third book of The Midnight Hunter Trilogy. Like the first two, I was drawn in almost immediately.
We start out with Donna living a somewhat normal existence for the next two years after the battle from the last book. However, it was pretty short-lived from where we pick up the story. One day, on the way to the grocery store, she accidentally runs over/through Ursula, the goddess of chaos. Naturally, the goddess was a bit ticked off, and left Donna with a threat to end her world as she knows it. In typical Donna fashion, she avoids telling her husband, Hunter, about it. She simply wanted the peace she had been enjoying for the last couple of years to stick around a while longer.
Soon, we meet up with Cassie, the Prophecy Holder. She has continued with her job of translating the Underworld Prophecy that had been left by the gods. We soon learn that she is pregnant with Howie's twins, which makes them a vampire/demon/human hybrid. Similarly to Donna's daughter Lucinda, we later learn that these twins have their own place in the prophecy.
Before long, the goddess of chaos begins to fulfill her promise, with the help of The Trickster, and people close to Donna start to go missing. Donna, Hunter, and their vampire/demon/human family set out to defeat the goddess, and bring their loved ones back. Naturally, they run across several obstacles along the way, including a few that really just had me stunned into speechlessness, which is an incredibly rare occurrence for me.
As I said in both of my previous reviews for Bonnie Bernard, she knows her characters. She paints amazingly colorful and entertaining characters that really make this book (and the entire series) stand out. This is definitely something that consistently stands out for her, and something I admire about her.
This story is incredibly fast-paced and draws you in from the beginning. It seems something was always happening. Although, Howie is certainly not one to allow room for any boredom. ;-)
One of the things I loved most about this series as a whole was the reminder that even though things are frequently labelled good or bad, that doesn't necessarily mean they are. It was more true to life. In most stories, vampires and demons are bad. In those same stories gods/goddesses and humans are good. In this story, the author made sure to clarify that things aren't quite so black and white. There's always a lot of grey area. One of my favorite parts of this story was near the end when a father told his daughter (leaving names out to avoid spoilers) that she would find the man she'd be with and have a child with, and he'd be evil. Seeing this male character through much of the book, I couldn't help but laugh to myself and think, "Well, he's not evil per se ... He's more ... chaotic neutral." I love that the author made sure that her characters were more colorful and complicated than simply good or evil. It definitely makes the read more intriguing.

I'm about to cry. I feel like I'm saying goodbye to my best friends, and I don't want to! I loved, adored and cherished this third book in the series so much that I refused to believe I was at the end.
I was emotionally invested to the point of almost smashing my beloved kindle when I felt the betrayal of one of the vampires I trusted wholeheartedly, boggled when Donna was getting butterflies over some human when she had a stud muffin of a vampire warrior as her husband, and was so confused as to who was missing because they were taken, as part of the bad guys plan, who the bad guys were...IT WAS GENIUS!! I couldn't put it down, I didn't want it to end, and I have to admit - (whispering) I think I'm in love with Howie Evil! He's just so revolting with a squishy marshmallow center that's irresistible!
My advice is: Don't walk. RUN to buy this series! You are going to love it!
Please, please, please tell me there is another one in the works, Ms. Bernard - or I really WILL cry!
