Overview

Anna Strong—kick-ass bounty hunter and vampire—has made some enemies in her time. But it’s not just her old foes she should be worried about…

Anna’s shape-shifting friend Culebra finally opens up to her about his life before he owned Beso de la Muerte, a bar catering to supernatural clientele. As if summoned by the conversation, Culebra’s past stumbles into his bar in the form of an old buddy cashing in a favor.

Soon Anna, Culebra and her ex, DEA agent Max, find themselves deep in Mexico, dealing with drug cartel infighting, old vendettas and missing girls. Mexico just may prove to be Anna’s best match yet…

This book is called haunted for several reasons that I'm not going to go into because I don't want to be a spoiler. I read this 300 page ebook in one afternoon -- it was that good. The books in this series combine just the right amount of action, with description and love story interest to keep the reader engaged. Anna's ex, Max, is back again and being a jerk like usual. I never understood why he had such a problem with her, but at least in this book he starts coming around to recognizing she's not such a bad person. I've always wished Anna would have told him the whole story of how she became a vampire, but that would have been more for her own vidication I guess. Frey, who has always been a favorite makes a guest appearance and throws her in a tailspin concerning her heart. I think her main problem is that she keeps ending up with men who treat her like an accessory instead of like the main attraction. I always feel like the men are with her for what she can do for them whether it be political or as eye candy. Anna can do better. The ending made me sad and happy all in one. I'm also glad we got more of a back story on her friend and fellow supernatural, Culebra.

If you have not read this series in order, you need to. Book one of Anna Strong Series is Becoming. This book was one of those monumental change stories in a series. Culebra's past comes to light and the truth of some of his past comes to light also, when an old friend comes calling for a favor. Anna also gets a glimpse of what could be in her life. By the end of this tale, Anna's life will have dramatically changed, some for the better, and some for the worse. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this story, and there never was a dull moment.

A PARANORMAL ACTION MOVIE SET TO PAPER! Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson: I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Haunted from the Publisher for review. I settled in with the tale on a trip out of town and almost missed several set meet up times because I couldn't put it down! Haunted is basically an action movie set to paper with a leading lady to rival Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie, or any of the other action heroines out there that we so love. Our favorite gun-toting, 'what you see is what you get' PI/Vampire is thrown into a devastatingly dangerous situation with her friend and shapeshifter Culebra and ex and DEA agent Max. What starts out as a favor for a friend, turns into a huge ordeal full of Mexican drug cartels, child sex/slavery rings, and more. It's one hurdle after another for Anna and her gang, and NOTHING is as it seems! During the ordeal, Anna & Culebra gain a few unexpected allies and new friends, Max proves that he's not quite the jerk that we thought he was, Anna makes sacrifices yet again to save her friends and the innocent, and in the end... the good guys win... um... sort of. This book was intense and the end had my heart rate elevated immensely and a look of utter shock on my face. I can't tell you more without ruining it, but it was OH SO GOOD!! Haunted was action packed, emotion filled, & utterly fantastic!! While I suggest reading the entire series, Haunted can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. LITERAL ADDICTION gives Haunted 5 Skulls and would recommend it to everyone! Urban Fantasy lovers need to check into the Anna Strong Chronicles, it's a journey you won't regret!
