Shiloh Walker is simply one of the best writers of the newly dubbed 'Romantica' genre. (The term,I believe, comes from the e-publisher, Elloras Cave.)
The Hunters is a series of stories whose lead characters,ie.(the romantic interest couple) are vampires, werewolves, witches....well you get the idea. Each story is a completed story within a series, and though Elloras Cave standards list the individual stories as novel length, they are really novellas. (They are not short stories though so relax)
The characters are fun and hot...and true to the signature of this genre which crosses WAY-HOT erotica with romance and in many cases Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery...you name it and Shiloh Walker has an excellent series for all taste.
I'm not going to tell you the story in this review. What I will tell you is that though it will never win a Nobel Prize, it is fresh and exciting especially for a vampire story, which have just about been done to death in publishing. (Great villian too as well as the ghost of the villians Mother.)
Declan and Tori are the 1st in this series. Declan is an 'inherent werewolf' (read the book to find out what that means), and Tori is almost a vampire. (read the book to find out what that means), its just too darn complicated for a quick synopsis. (If you want to read sample chapters and a synopsis go to www.ellorascave.com to find a listing of Shiloh Walkers prodigious, wonderful stories complete with cover art and more.)
The 2nd story is the story of the powerful leader of the Vampires, Eli, and a vengeful witch, Sarel. Eli is introduced in the Declan and Tori tale,(you'll love him, all of them really). Shiloh Walker writes about Super-Alpha males and tough bold women.
What you need to know about this book: 1. Its an adult book, it contains all the elements many Romance readers look for and then add to their keepers shelf and its blazing, ass-scorching hot! (Made me fidget) ( : Elloras Caves stable of writers, write erotic romance...very erotic. (You can check out the rating system at the Elloras Cave web site stated previously.)
2. The plot will hold your interest...no doubt about it. Shiloh Walker is an expert world builder, she takes you places that don't exist and makes you believe in magic and love and anything else she wants you to believe for that matter.
3. If you are not interested in reading sexually explict material or have issues with naughty language don't bother with Shiloh Walker because her books sizzle with heat...all kinds.
4. Most of her titles are available only in e-book format...so you should grab this paperback,(which by the way Elloras Cave publishes a wonderfully bound trade paperback for all its titles in print) if you don't have e-book resources these well made books are a pleasure to own and read.
I'm a bookseller, and I never have used copies of Elloras Caves printed titles, I can't seem to keep this title in stock even new, and as I mentioned above Elloras Cave has done a great job with the quality of their printed titles. The art work on the covers, which is important to book people, is hit and miss with some of Elloras Cave titles, but not The Hunters, by Shiloh Walker. The cover is interesting and...well...hot.
Buy this book if you like it wild and hot and Bad to the Bone. You won't be sorry.
