Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. 
"Bran and Lil may have escaped an attempt to lure Lil to the dark side, and recovered the contracts damned people signed with Bran when he was a soul collector, but someone forgot to tell them that no one switches sides or cancels contracts without consequences.

Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must seek help from unlikely sources to avert total annihilation of the Guardians. When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice."

My Thoughts:

I’m pretty sure I have a love/hate relationship with this series, well not really... I love it but sometimes I want to shake the book and make the characters do what I want them to do. I am always addicted and engrossed with the story, but I have moments where I just want to chuck the book across the room. It’s an odd feeling but overall I would say I enjoyed the book.

Lil is a good heroine. She may not be my favorite but I do like her. She is a genuinely good person and she always tries to make the right choice. Also, she doesn't whine and I really appreciate that. However, sometimes I think she brushes things off a bit too easily. People always seem to be keeping secrets from her and if it was me I would start cracking skulls and demanding answers instead of just waiting for people to finally tell me. Then again I’m impatient.

Then we have Bran who is my favorite. I just love him so much! But boy do you need to learn to stay still! It seems like in every book in this series he goes missing at some point. There are always a few chapters where Lil doesn’t know where he is and those chapters always drive me bonkers.

I also love the secondary characters in this series, especially Sykes. He just always knows how to lighten the mood. He makes me laugh out loud constantly. I also love Master Haziel a lot; simply because he is the wise know it all teacher with a weird sense of humor.

The plot in Hunted was really fast moving and kept me turning pages. It killed me every single time I had to stop. I just wanted to know where the story was headed. Some of it was predictable, but I found that it didn’t take anything away from the story. With that being said, some of it frustrated me. A pet peeve of mine is when characters lose their memories and that happened in this one. I hate having to relearn things so initially I was angry. However, as the story progressed it became clear that the memory loss was not going to be the main focus of the story. Once I realized this I was a happy camper and moved past this pet peeve of mine.

All in all, Hunted is a very enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy angel/demon books. This one has everything you want in an angel book while still maintaining its own distinct feel.

  1. Gotta love good secondary characters, right? And OMG, that's a pet peeve of mine too! It seems kind of like a cop-out, and...well, it doesn't add anything to the story for me. What about you? And teeheehee, I know exactly what you mean about wanting to throw a book, but wanting to hug it too. LOL! Fab review, Teresa! (:

    1. Thanks! I am not big on the mind loss thing, but its mostly because I am impatient and I feel like I have to re-learn everything as the character does. There are some exceptions where I enjoy it. The good news though is that it was not overly prominent in this book.

  3. I heart you SO much! YES! Why can't we shake the books like an etch-a-sketch and erase what the characters have just fubar'ed! Also, love Bran needing to stay still. I can't wait to meet him! Memory loss is not my favorite, but you still have me wanting to read this one. Awesome review, my love! xo

  5. I'm still debating reading this series, but to be honest I am really liking the sound of the plot and the characters. Despite some of the characters driving you insane, I think if I do pick this up, I'd enjoy it. I definitely like the angels/demon concept, so.....we'll see. lol ;p

    Awesome review Teresa! I'm glad you ended up enjoying this one!
