Review: Hunt the Darkness
Hunt the Darkness by Alexandra Ivy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve only read one other Guardians of Eternity short story (in Supernatural), but it was enough to make me curious about future books. This one is a combination of action, sizzle, magic, and vampires. It dealt with “fated mates” in a way that I hadn’t seen before, and was more interesting than your typical paranormal romance because of it.
Roke and Sally have become mates because of some magical mayhem on Sally’s part (which I assume happened in a previous book I did not read). Roke, being a vampire, believes all witches are up to no good while Sally, a witch who has been kept prisoner by vampires, believes the same about him. The two are an unlikely pair that is instantly attracted to each other because of this mating business. To try to break the magic that binds them, Sally must discover the truth about her father. Somewhere along the way, though, neither is so certain that breaking the bond is the right thing to do.
The sizzle level is pretty high throughout the book (when they’re not fighting and running) and somehow it convinced me that these two really stubborn people belonged together. There were a lot of twists and turns, some mystery, some bad guy POV (not my favorite), and a satisfying HEA. This series seems like a great one to check out for paranormal romance readers and I’ll have to look into going back to catch up on the storylines in the future.
