ARC REVIEW: "Hunter Reborn" by Katie Reus
Warrior shifter Aiden’s investigation of the trafficking of vampire blood leads to a startling discovery: the beautiful vampire bondmate he thought was dead. Decades ago, they’d defied their powerful families to be together, but then Larissa disappeared without a trace. When their mating link broke, it nearly destroyed Aiden. Now she’s back with no memory of where she’s been. Even more shattering—Larissa claims she has no idea who Aiden is.
Now she’s back...
It’s a race against time to bring down an operation more evil than his pack ever suspected, and Aiden finds himself working side by side with a mate who no longer trusts him—and she wants out. But he lost her once, and he won’t let her go again. Unfortunately, Larissa’s blood is the key to a powerful monster’s dangerous plan—and he’ll stop at nothing to destroy her, sparking off a war between the supernaturals and humans that no one will win.
In the interest of full disclosure, I have to say that I am a Katie Reus fan. I have read all 10 books in her Red Stone Security series, the Serafina: Sin City and Dark series. However, I have not read a single book in the Moon Shifter series and this is book FIVE.
I am happy to say that Ms. Reus has hit a homerun. I don’t always love it when my favorite contemporary authors go into the paranormal romance realm. Sometimes the elements don’t translate well and things get a little wonky. I am happy to say this is NOT the case here. I loved the story. I thought it was creative, suspenseful and fun. The author brings the right level of emotionality so that we, as readers, get hooked into the drama.
I’ve said this before and it is still true. Katie Reus’ books would make great movies. Her writing is engaging - it pumps up the blood pressure, and is very visual. Having not read the previous four books, I had a small concern whether this book could stand alone. I’m not a huge fan of jumping to the middle of a series, but what I realize is that it all depends on the author. At no time during the story did I feel lost. The author provides plenty of context and enticing details that made me want to read the earlier books instead of putting me off.
Whether you are a long time fan of Katie Reus or new to her books, you will enjoy this read.
