Overview

Byron Caige has been a prisoner for the last fifty years of his supernaturally long life. Just when he gives up hope of ever knowing the taste of freedom again, he is unwittingly rescued by the very same woman who only wants to see him dead. Katherine Dare—Kat—is smart, fast, strong, and beautiful—but unfortunately she's a Hunter, and she's convinced that Byron murdered her father twenty years ago.

She's also Byron's dormant.

As supernatural war breaks out amongst the otherworldly of Earth and threatens the existence of entire races, Kat is faced with a terrible decision. Should she give up her cause and believe Caige when he professes his innocence? Or should she fight him and possibly avenge her father's taken life—even while she forfeits her own?

    Worth the wait!!! I Highly recommend ALL the books in this series!!

    I fell in love with the Big Bad Wolf series instantly when I read the first book and I read the next 2 within as many days... I couldn't get enough!! The characters, the plot, the twists all took you on an emotional roller coaster ride that just got better and better with each book!!
    So when the release date was announced for this book I was sitting on the edge of my seat all day waiting patiently for B&N to make it available for download...and I waited... and waited...and waited some more (not so patiently) until it was FINALLY available 5 days later. Not sure what the glitch was with B&N :(
    Anyway, I downloaded it as soon as it was released and read it in one (red-eyed) sitting. I couldn't put it down and as it was with the others, this book did not disappoint!!
    Each book centers around a different set of main characters but intertwines the previous books characters into the storyline so you could see how their stories progressed...they also gave you a little backstory for the next books characters without being repetitive so it is better to read these books in sequence.
    HKW has definitely done it again and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!! Hopefully it some more ridiculously sexy Alpha wolves ;)

    Unfocuse, Cliche-filled Mess

    When it comes to romance novels, The Hunt is average. You've got your basic heroine - strong, beautiful and sexy - who finds the hero - gorgeously muscled and hunky - and of course he falls desperately in love with said heroine because they "are fated to be with each other" and she, against her better judgment, finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. It's all so very cliché. I wish for just once the heroine would be a slightly over weigh and the hero wouldn't look like a GQ model. Also the love scenes were tepid at best, and at worst felt more like Killough was describing a rape than a love scene.

    The supernatural aspects of the book are a mish-mash of everything from werewolves to vampires to warlocks. The characters were, to put it mildly, a little jumbled. It's like Killough couldn't decide which direction to go in, so she just threw a little bit of everything in the pot, gave it a good stir, a wish and a prayer, and shipped it off to the editors.

    They were running a sale on Killough's ebooks, and I see now why - I'm also sorry to say that I went ahead and bought three of them - if the other two are as much of a mess as this one, then it's been a colossal waste of money!

    A Must Read! Positively Addictive!

    There is a scene in Heather Killough-Walden's newest novel, "The Hunt," where a crucial spell is being attempted as witches and werewolves observe in tense, respectful silence. The scene takes place in a redwood forest, and the author writes, "The night grew very still. There was no sound from the animals in the forest. It was as if every one of them sensed the change coming and was listening. Watching." That's what reading "The Hunt" was like for me. I felt like one of those forest denizen, present on the outskirts and observing respectfully and breathlessly as the story unfolded. At times I had to step away and catch my breath; other times I blew off everyone and everything to continue reading and remain on the outskirts of that redwood forest, or the conference room in wolf council headquarters, or in the cave with Byron and Kat. Oh my - that cave . . . . The Hunt is the story of Byron Caige and his dormant, Katherine "Kat" Dare, the newest of HK-W's wolf couples. It is the fourth book in the Big Bad Wolf series. We first met Byron at the very end of the previous BBW book, "The Spell," where the gorgeous alpha wolf was being kept in chains as the favorite sexual prisoner of a very spoiled vampire princess. Katherine "Kat" Dare, a rare, female werewolf Hunter, is first introduced in this book. She has spent most of her life seeking the wolf she believes killed her father - Byron is that wolf and it turns out she is also his dormant - they are destined mates. For me, Kat is the most fully drawn character yet in the series, and possibly the most empathetic. Her feelings of guilt, unresolved loss, blind thirst for vengeance, and eventual renewed awareness of love and friendship - are layered so delicately throughout the story that her motivations creep up at times and move the story in completely unexpected directions. She is also a daunting physical foe, given her years of training as a hunter. Byron's past is also a big part of the story, as he emotionally struggles with the effects of fifty years of torture and captivity (paranormal time - he barely ages), as well as being kept in a sort of time capsule by his captor, only to find himself suddenly in the present day. But this book is all action, and the personal demons of the characters just add to the intensity because they inspire them to respond in such surprising ways. I was constantly thinking - I never saw that coming! But each twist works so well and just adds to the tension. And there is plenty of the usual sexual tension the BBW books deliver so well. The heat between Byron and Kat is as good as it gets. The charisma between them, friendship based on mutual admiration, adds a lot to the story. Adding to the sense of familiarity in the book, is that most of the characters from the previous three novels are also present and very involved in the overall story. Ultimately, the future of them and their kind is at stake and this just notches up the intensity of the story. This is my favorite of all the BBW books. Killough-Walden just gets better and better with everything she writes. I highly recommend that you read the three previous books in the series to fully understand the history and character dynamics. Elements of the back story are explained, but it is so much more fun reading the books to get acquainted with everyone. Plus, all four covers as designed by the author look smashing together.

    Does not disappoint - Highly Recommended

    eather Killough-Walden she does not disappoint in the 4th book of the Big Bad Wolf series and is deserving of the New York Times Best Selling Author list! The characters are wonderfully described and she easily keeps you on the edge of your seat with the unseen twists and turns of the story line...making guessing what's going to happen next difficult (and awesome). She also does a fantastic job of prepping the reader for the next book in the series and sets the stage for other characters to spin off into their own stories, ensuring there is more to come! Another aspect of Heather's work that I love and greatly appreciate is the continuing inclusion of the heroes and heroines of the series from her previous books. So many times once the book is over, authors do a cursory (and oftentimes lacking) paragraph on how the previous characters are doing and nothing else...essentially cutting the reader off from characters they are invested in. Heather, however, does not diminish these character roles in this or any of her series, but places them front and center of each story line, growing their roles and involving the new set of heroes/heroines into the family dynamic she has established. I highly recommend this and all of Heathers books and I greatly look forward to the next installment! Keep em coming Heather!

    The Hunt grabs you with the first sentence and never lets go! I loved this story. Heather delivered another spectacular addition to an already amazing series. Byron and Kat's story sucked me in from the very beginning. Kat is a werewolf hunter and dormant and has been dreaming of Byron. Byron is a werewolf with a very interesting history. This book is full of action, sexual tension, and emotional struggles with some very surprising twists that I never saw coming. This book is outstanding and takes the Big Bad Wolf series to a whole new level.

    A Must Read This Summer!

    I have been with Heather from the beginning and she always delivers....on the story, the characters, the action... Her books pull you in and you become a part of her magical world..and she never disappoints. The Hunt grabs you with the first sentence and never lets go...but you are left wanting more. Heather's writing is brilliant and very much in touch with what readers are looking for in today's market.... I give it 5 stars..plus 1 more...

    Hmm hmm

    Well what can I say, another one where the heroine is beat over the head and thrown over the heros shoulder and carried away to live happily whatever. Really these authors really need to get a new storyline. Its to the point where you read the first 10 pages to figure out the main male and female character and the rest is history. Female gets thrown over males shoulder, objecting all the way and poof end of book, married or mated. Really this is the 21st century. Why must women be portrayed as weak minded, do as your told weaklings. Really its time for the women to stand up and jump off that shoulder. Come on authors, change the storyline.

    Don't bother I'm sure you could write a better book. The author becomes
    obsessed with particular word. This author loves dichotomy. While on a
    strictly definition basis she uses it correctly, it's most situations a
    better word would suffice. You end of skipping so many pages that it's
    not a bargain. Once you read the first intospective commentary that goes
    through the herione or hero you really don't need to read it again
    because it is repetitious. This writer also loves to write about some
    sort of perverted control a man likes to use on a women and gets off on
    tortuing the women in the story. This viewpoint colors the book and
    makes the intention come across evil.

    Brittany Weidenfeller ‎Heather Killough-Walden is probably one of the most addictive authors I’ve ever come across. Her writing style is unique. Her tales are sensational. The fact that she’s not been snatched up by some bigwig corporate publishing house blows my mind. I’ve tried to write reviews for her books before and I’ve always had the same problem. I never feel that I’m able to do them justice. I first found Heather when I came across The Heat (book 1 of the BBW series) while playing around on my new Nook nearly three years ago. I remember reading the first chapter and thinking, “she’s a good writer”, it took a few more chapters before I realized I was wrong. She wasn’t JUST a good writer, she was one of the best I’d ever read. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been reading her books as she releases them and every time I think that her next book can’t possibly live up to the last, I’m once again proven wrong. The fact that she’s able to write about the supernatural (my favorite. genre) and yet keep her books from becoming too dark/violent/gory and still have them turn out as exciting as they are, is a huge plus for me! Heather has to be one of the funniest women on the planet because the witty banter/inner dialogue struggle is laugh out loud funny! The passion and romance is insanely HOT and the action keeps you on the edge of your seat desperate for more. Not to mention the way that every one of the character's stories are so neatly intertwined and the way that it's all brought together in every book is nothing short of brilliant. I am seriously in awe of her writing. I've never cared for novels that have too much going on in the way of characters. Multiple p.o.v drive me crazy when it’s messy back and forth. I do not have this problem with The Big Bad Wolf series or it’s spin off The Kings. In fact I think that her biggest strength is that she can bring so much to the table and yet still make it work as flawlessly and as entertaining as she does. I don't know how you write your books so that they flow so well Heather, but you not only make it work, you make it so damn hard to pick a character to root for! They're ALL so equally amazing and SIZZLING hot! Thank you for going for your dreams and sharing your love of writing with us. I look forward to reading your books for many years to come and sharing them with others every chance I get!!! Thank you for everything, Brittany
