Today I finished Midnight Hunter by Bonnie Bernard. This is the first book in The Midnight Hunter Trilogy, and I have to say, it’s definitely a great start! I enjoyed this book from the very beginning even through the author bio in the back! Yes, I said it! I even read the author bio and it made me giggle!
Midnight Hunter mainly focuses on a young woman named Donna. Even from the beginning, Donna has strange dreams that seem to get a little too close for comfort. Soon enough, she even starts to sustain injuries from things that happen in her dreams.
Donna’s friend, Mo, decides she wants to take Donna to a club. What Donna wasn’t aware of at first is the fact that girls matching Donna’s description had been disappearing from this club. Preferring to stay further away from crowds, Donna head to a more secluded place in the club where she meets Hunter, your typical broody male vampire. We soon find out that Hunter is the brother of the man responsible for the disappearances.
While there are some pieces of this story that do fall into the category of “typical vampire romance,” I found myself drawn into this story by parts that were really very unique. I even found myself loving a few of the lesser characters. Really that’s something that Bonnie Bernard does very well. She knows how to bring amazing characters. In fact, there was even one character, specifically a weapons dealer, that we only got to meet through a phone call and a few brief mentions in conversations, that I would love to be a fly on the wall to watch inside his shop even for a day!
Overall, I loved this book from cover to cover! If you haven’t read it yet, you’re missing out!
