Review: The Hunt by C. J. Ellisson

Title:  The Hunt
Author:  C. J. Ellisson
Genre:  Paranormal
Published: June 2011
Publisher:  Self Published

Synopsis:

Vivian thinks she can control every aspect of a deadly game with her usual manipulations… but what if she can’t? Journey along, in this next installment of The V V Inn series, for a wild ride as the tale is told through the eyes of all her new seethe members.

Seven vampires and seven werewolves pay to hunt a supernatural criminal across the cold, vast grounds of an Alaskan resort. The one to catch her, and live through the encounter, will increase their power by feasting on hers.

The tiny vampire they track is more than she appears, however. To escape a fate of ten years in silver chains, she'll do anything to survive the weeklong excursion. This time, the darkness holds more than just the stinging bite of the Arctic—it holds death.

Another fabulous story by C.J. Ellisson - we pick up with Vivian and Rafe two months after the last book ends.  With lots of familiar characters and more fun.  I really enjoyed this book, and so far it's actually my favorite of the two books.  

While I thoroughly enjoyed Vampire Vacation - this book to me had something more.  We learn more about Vivian and her past and why she is who she is.  We learn more about the resort and the Ancient Tribunal and her past role with them.

I also enjoyed the different perspectives in this book.  Each chapters was told by a different character in the story.  We get to see inside the minds of Vivian, Rafe, Drew and Jon.. how they feel, what they are thinking and how each situation develops around them.This book was just as hot as the first, incredible sex scenes, fight scenes and dialogue between the different characters. 

The VV Inn is hosting it's first 'official' hunt.  Unlike the previous that happened in the first book this has rules, is a lot deadlier.  We meet a rival of Vivian's who likes to cause trouble; a pack of Were's who come in from Canada.  Several groups of Vampires - some we've met before and some new Vamps to spice things up a bit.

I am really looking forward to Book 3 in the series!
