The Hunters by Heidi Angell   Leave a comment


I’m going to say this again, because I never get tired of it: I’m grateful for this author, because in this book: vampires maim, kill, drink blood, and actually fucking die when exposed to the sun. You know, things that hominus nocturna  is supposed to do. So, if you’re looking for disco ball vampires, you’ve come to the wrong author. Anyway, The Hunters is about Chris, his older brother Lucas, and the band of friends they’ve gotten together to resist the vampire takeover of their small town. They’ve only killed a few in the year they’ve been fighting. During a vampire ambush that sees one of their own dead and Chris about to join her, two mysterious vampire hunters join the fight, doing in a single night what Chris, Lucas, and the others were unable to do in a year. The two introduce themselves as Fury and Havoc, and though they want nothing to do with the group at first to keep them out of danger, Chris admires their prowess in suckhead killing. Lucas and the others don’t quickly put their trust in the two, obviously wanting to know more about them. There are times that the pair come into conflict with members of the group, such as Lana’s father being slain by Fury, despite Lana’s protests that he wasn’t like the rest of the vampires. Eventually, everyone begins to trust Fury and Havoc, and the pair begin to train them for survival against the vampires.


The action was amazing, with well-done combat scenes. The only gripe I have about that is that I wish there had been more down and dirty hand-to-hand action with a transformed Havoc and I would’ve loved to know what type of power aside from heightened senses Fury has as an Immortal and has it been helpful in the fight. The sex scene between the two with Chris watching seemed out of place, but even the greatest warriors must wind down somehow and escape the reality of blood, gore, and death. That was their way.
