Dawn of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard

Published June 18, 2012 by Ema Volf

It’s now 3:30 in the morning and I just now finished Dawn of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard. This is book 2 in The Midnight Hunter Trilogy. Why am I still up at 3:30? Because I couldn’t put the darn thing down! That’s why! I’m hooked!

This book starts up a few months after the point where we left off in Midnight Hunter. We don’t get an easy introduction either. Right off the bat we find that Donna and Hunter’s infant daughter, Lucinda, was stolen by Stephan, Hunter’s brother who was previously thought to have been killed.

Donna was visited by the goddess Alicia and instructed to seek help from the weapons dealer that I mentioned I wanted to meet in the last book! And I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed! He is exactly as fascinating as I’d imagined, if not more so! On the way to their rescue mission, we are informed that a woman named Cassie has also gone missing. Cassie had found the lost copy of an Underworld Prophecy, and was able to translate it, making her a target for Underworld creatures.

One of the things I found most interesting was watching that prophecy unravel. When I started to really learn about it, and the characters that were foretold to be involved, I couldn’t help but wonder how in the world the author was going to pull it off without either having the characters destroy each other or having the whole thing be completely unbelievable for the reader. Yet again, I was pleasantly surprised. The author pulled it off beautifully.

This book was much more fast-paced than the one before it. It had much more action, but not so much that it leaves the reader overwhelmed or confused. Just the right amount. It definitely kept my mind wondering and guessing what could possibly happen next, and definitely not in a bad way.

Once again, I really have to give the author props for her characters. Bonnie Bernard definitely knows her characters, and she fleshes them out so well, they seem to hang around in your head long after you’ve put the book down.

Oh my … I’m going to be busy busy …

So when I said I’m going to start doing longer, better reviews, I meant it. Every last word of it. And now, I have been given the opportunity to do 5 books. O.O I’m going to be a busy, busy girly over the next couple of weeks. And I must say they all look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to finish them all! These, of course, are reviews in addition to finishing the editing work for The Rapture of Avery Maye (which is almost done).

Coming up (in this order):

  1. Midnight Hunter by Bonnie Bernard
  2. Dawn of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard
  3. Blood Thirst by LA Freed
  4. Spellbound by Samantha Combs
  5. Everspell by Samantha Combs

Also, on July 13th, I will be sharing an interview with Cat Miller! I can’t wait! I love that woman to pieces! If you have any questions you would like me to ask (in addition to my own), the last day to get them to me is this Saturday!
