In search of Kayla and on the run, Kiera and her friends make a race against time across the Cumbria Mountains. With the vampires predicting their every move, the trust amongst Kiera and her friends starts to fade.

From the desolate monastery set high between the mountains, the mysterious lake and the caves beneath the fountain, Kiera must discover the connection between the vampires and her mother, Isidor and Kayla, and resolve her inner feelings for Potter and Luke.
Kiera herself has started to change and this frightens her. So turning to her friends for help, she realises that it is only her mother who can provide the truth. But Kiera has other questions that she needs to have answered. Why did Isidor murder an innocent girl? Who is the person that Murphy has been meeting in secret? But above all, why have they put their lives and trust in the hands of a serial killer?

BOOK REVIEW:



Tim O’Rourke is like a kid in a candy store with his storyline and characters in Vampire Hunt. What a rollercoaster ride of emotions and action. This is probably his best book in the series , the pages were turning and I couldn’t stop reading. It’s almost hard to take a break from reading this book as the momentum is awesome.


I laughed, I grabbed for a Kleenex, the twists are incredible and it's also quite a dark tale. I pride myself on trying to work story line/ plot out when I am reading books. It’s one of my ways of rating a book. If I can be stumped then this is a great read. Tim is just not a predictable writer. It’s a simple as that. He obviously enjoys keeping the readers thinking.


Potter...my smart mouth boy Potter, although a tad cranky in this instalment, he has the most sarcastic dialogue that just had me doing my Muttley laugh...you know Muttley from the Wacky Races...errr, if you are old enough , you will understand. Anyhoo , he is a dog that has this weezy laugh. If I wasn’t doing the Muttley , I was BOL!. Tim .... errr ....I mean Potter has just the best humour. Potter’s character is wonderful laugh medicine. Potter has this serious side to him and he has this wonderful sarcastic banter with Isidor and this smexi tension with Kiera.


There is some gore, which Tim just does so spontaneously, you don’t see it coming. I really want to get into the storyline , but, then that would spoil it. Visually Tim’s words translate in your mind into these awesome action filled scenes you see played out as you are reading. I just see them so clearly.


Tim has introduced another species of characters and his take on them is so original. Your eyes will pop, I know mine did. Tim loves to take it that little step further. (Oh...my...lips...are...sealed...I..can’t ...say....what....I ...so ...want...to....hee..hee!)


Tim wrote his third instalment in a matter of weeks, I can see why as it would be hard as the author to stop writing , take a break and come back as the momentum of the story just keeps building and then the end!!! Let’s just say Vampire Breed Book # 4 , cannot come quick enough for me. Tim is the male version of Amanda Hocking, as in self published and on fire!


Seriously Publishers you really need to get a hold of his 3 books in The Kiera Hudson series , Vampire Shift, Vampire Wake and Vampire Hunt and have a read. The book covers are gorgeous and really eye catching. The characters you feel like you really, know them .


Spencer Hill Press took on Jennifer L Armentrout , her Covenant Series and Entangled Publishing took on her Lux series. I rate Tim’s books on par with Jennifer’s books, but totally, totally different stories.


I highly recommend this series , I am like a little kid all bouncy waiting for each sequel as this series is very addictive.

FAVE QUOTES :

"You like dangerous," he said, bringing his mouth closer to mine."
No I don't," I whispered back, a strange sense of excitement racing through me.
"Yeah, you do," he said, "or you wouldn't be here now." Then leaning into me , he covered my lips with his.


"Look," Potter said turning on him, "I  can just about forgive a girl for not shaving her armpits - but a hairy tongue! That just takes the piss!" 


..."I wouldn't trust him as long as I have a hole in my arse."


..."Explosives for crying -out-loud! This isn't an episode of The A-Team. Jeez - you'll be suggesting next that we build a bridge out of elastic bands and climb over the wall that way!"
