The Witch Hunter by Nicole R. Taylor

Zachary Degaud was twenty three when he died. The problem was, he didn't stay that way.
Present day, he's just another vampire with another unremarkable story. That is, until he manages to provoke a two thousand year old witch named Katrin, who wants to make him pay in the most horrible way imagined.
Along with his brother Sam, newly made vampire Liz and their only witch ally, Gabby, his only chance for survival is to summon the ancient and unpredictable vampire known as the Witch Hunter.
Zac is just looking for a way out of his psychopathic witch problems, but instead will find himself falling head first into a blood feud that has stretched thousands of years.

Aya has been asleep for the past 150 years, until she was awoken by a haunting call. The witch she has been hunting for thousands of years, Katrin, has resurfaced and marked a young, annoyingly arrogant vampire by the name of Zachary Degaud. Unless she does something, he will die a slow and painful death. He has given her an opportunity to end the witch, but does she want to help him or leave him to his fate?
Zac will get under her skin like no one else has and she just might find herself making the ultimate sacrifice before he is gone forever.

They will both have to choose sides and look deep within themselves before the end. But, what Zac learns about himself, will surprise him most of all.

I'm a subscriber to Bookbub which means I have read my fair share of "free" books. I don't expect a whole lot from these reads except for punctuation mistakes and misspellings, however, I have been pleasantly surprised many times. This one was a surprise, with how terrible this high rated book is. Two pages in had me pulling up this page on Barnes and Noble to see if this book was in any way related to the Vampire Diaries series. The similarities are so strong it's off-putting. The story is stilted with many plot holes. At one point the writer switches between first and third person. There are many spelling mistakes and I found myself reading just so I could delete this book from my Nook. Not to mention all the foul language that I wasn't expecting to find in what I mistakenly thought was a young adult fantasy novel. There are so many options for great reads in this genre, this one is just not worth your time.

I read this first book in less than a day. Bought the next three. If you don't want to get suck into the series don't start it, it has cliff hangers

This book has stolen the plot from vampire diaries. Maybe if the author comes up with an original plot I'll try reading them again.

Nicely rich premise, reads very quickly. I hope the subsequent installments live up to its promise.

Very slow moving and I was not attached to any of the characters. The dynamics ( two brothers who were turned into vampires against their wishes who are in love with the same girl who also has been made a vampire against her wishes who has a best friend who happens to be a powerful witch and their too nice, human, clueless guy friend) are all characters with personalities stolen from Vampire Diaries. Even stole the daylight ring that allows them to walk in the sun. I wanted to like it and I almost stopped reading it about 15 times but I read to the end hoping it would get better. It didn't get better. The author invested a lot of time to write this book. I'm not sure why she would go to so much trouble and them make it so similar to Vampire Diaries.

Personally I have felt some recent vampire stories have had repetitive and stale plots, which is why The Witch Hunter immediately gave me a buzz. Nicole R Taylor blends the generic motifs of a paranormal story; witches, vampires, werewolves and magic; into one exciting, fresh and dangerous novel. The Witch Hunter is set in Ashburton, Lousiana, in America's South, not Ashburton, Devon which is several miles down the road from me, as I had to keep reminding myself! Zac Degaud likes drinking alcohol and blood and is an intensely unhappy figure. One night he kills Alistair Payne and in revenge Katrin, a founding witch, promises to destroy him and his family. Gabby, his friend and a witch, helps them to summon The Witch Hunter, Aya. Aya's story is complicated and her abilities not truly known, though it is obvious she is powerful, having both vampire and witch powers. Despite her paranormal identity she is a character the reader feels able to connect with. Aya is vengeful and has a score to settle with Katrin, but she struggles to maintain her focus as her attraction and desire for Zac conflict with her Witch Hunter duties. Nicole R Taylor's novel is perfect for fans of this genre. The Witch Hunter has a comprehensive plot which captivates its reader, luring them into the battle waged by Zac, Aya and their allies. The story is left on a cliffhanger and I did not hesitate to purchase a copy of The Return! I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
