In the second novel of her series C.J. Ellison moves deeper into the suspense arena by offering her guests the ultimate hunting vacation. To catch a supernatural criminal condemned by the Tribunal of Ancients, a group whom Vivian had served as an enforcer in an earlier and darker part of her life.
Not only the thrill of the hunt has attracted the various vampire and werewolf guests to this gruesome game, but the opportunity to kill and drain the power of their prey. A bloody but potent incentive. Though Vivian has resigned to the drama, she feels oddly sorry for the chosen prey. She knows she is responsible for keeping the situation under control
But responsibility catches her by surprise when bodies turn up that have nothing to do with the hunt. She, along with her human mate Rafe and their employees are thrown headlong into a whirlwind off violent acts, questionable loyalties, vengeful enemies and the rage and hunger of bloody murder.
Though very well written, this book lacks some of the humor that worked so well in the first novel and is more of a true murder mystery. There are moments that bring a smile but more that send chills down your spine as you get a mental picture from the words. There is still plenty of hot and heavy scenes to warm your chills, deliciously explicit and spicy. Again, I enjoyed that much of it occured between Vivian and Rafe who's relationship is at the heart of these novels.
I will be waiting to see what direction Ms. Ellison takes in her next installment, butIf your taste runs hot and cold, this is a win win read.
