Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Vampires continue to feud in the flashback-laced sequel to 2008's Blood Memories. Eleisha Clevon, one of the few survivors of Julian Ashton's serial destruction of his fellow vampires, seeks to gather others like her so she can spread the knowledge of feeding without killing through psychic memory manipulation. Joining her are Philip, a once-feral vampire reluctantly converted to her cause, and telepathic human Wade. When they meet up with reclusive vampire Rose de Spenser and her ghostly cousin Seamus, Eleisha urges a move to a safe haven in Portland, Ore., as the paranoid Julian wants them all dead. Hendee smartly handles unusual concepts like the vampires' unique supernatural powers and Julian's drive to destroy his own race, but stilted language, uneven characterization and a choppy narrative style prevent this tale from standing out in its overcrowded field. (Oct.)

    This sequel to BLOOD VAMPIRES is enjoyable and creative

    Just a few centuries ago, the vampires had rules that let them go undetected by humans and the most important one was to drink mortal blood without killing the source. The blood diner would use hypnotic telepathy to erase all memories of the encounter. The second rule is that a vampire could not create more than one vampire per century. When the powerful Angelo created three sons in one century; two of whom were flawed. One of the offspring Julian Ashton had no psychic powers and his blood meals brought attention to himself that led to vampires wanting him euthanized. Instead he killed the psychic vampiric rivals; which violated vampire rules.

    Julian created Eleisha Clevon, but her psychic skills manifested on their own thanks to the mortal telepath Wade. She fought her sire and won forcing Julian to flee to his Cliffbracken in Wales with his tail between his legs. Eleisha and another vampire Rose de Spenser exchange letters about forming an underground vampire movement for vamps hiding from Julian. He learns of their plot and comes to the United Sates to stop Robert, an elder who knows the rules, unlike the made vampires of today from making contact with his enemies. He intends to kill Robert and anyone else in his way; however his opponents are gaining in strength, resolution, and conviction as they plant to take him down.

    This sequel to BLOOD VAMPIRES is an enjoyable and creative (not just of new vampires) cocktail cleverly blending urban fantasy mixed with strong horror elements. Eleisha is teaching Phillip how to drink blood without killing the prey; he, the son of Angelo would do anything to keep her safe because she gave him a reason to live. HUNTING MEMORIES is a thriller of a vampire tale as Julian is coming to take care of his enemies.

    Not nearly as good as the first book in this series

    I really enjoyed Blood Memories, and thought I'd like this book a lot, too. I didn't. The characters were illogical and kept doing stupid things that served no purpose other than to advance the thin plot. Eleisha became less assertive than she had been in the first book, and Wade much less interesting. Why neuter interesting characters to create a story that isn't even that entertaining? I don't get it.
    I'm not sure if I'll read the next book in this series, but if I do, I'll be getting it from the library, not purchasing it.

    Wow!

    I managed to get hold of an early copy of this, and I read it in one night. I could not put it down.

    This is one of the most engaging, emotionally moving novels that I've read in a long time.

    It's difficult to talk about the book without giving away spoilers, but one thing I loved was that main female character is strong without being a "kick ass" heroine. She has a true inner strength.

    I'm also madly in love with Philip. He's sexy one minute and hysterically funny in the next.

    Oh, and the villain here is genuinely frightening.

    Anyway, this book is moving, action-packed, funny at times, and the characters are richly developed. I can't wait for the next one.
