Review: Hunters & Prey – Katie Salidas
Alyssa has slowly learned to come to terms with the fact that she is now an immortal. Lysander has taught her that she can’t reveal herself to others. That she mustn’t let on to her friends and family that she still lives – to some extent, anyway. Yet part of her cannot deny that she yearns to co-exist within the human world.
As Lysander continues to instruct her on the do’s and dont’s of the vampiric world, she comes to accept the changes that have been wrought upon her and is determined to blend in with the new world around her. Yet that’s easier said than done as danger seems to follow wherever she goes. As she comes face to face with one of the Acta Sanctorum, she realizes that Santino is quite the formidable character whose determined to put an end to every undead he comes across.
A battle soon breaks out and catapults her to the one place she shouldn’t be. Guilt consumes her, for she knows she’s inadvertently placed her best friend in jeopardy by revealing who and what she now is. While a human is not supposed to know about the supernatural world, Alyssa can’t deny that Fallon is her only source of safety. The Acta Sanctorum won’t attack while she’s in their midst. Yet even that is not guaranteed.
With her world now in limbo and her friend’s life at stake, Alyssa knows that she and the rest of Lysander’s coven need to stay one step ahead of the enemy. One wrong move and it will surely cost them their very lives. Despite this, Alyssa is determined to keep what rightfully belongs to her while to trying to stay out of harms way.
Totally enjoyed the next installment to the Immortalis series. Katie’s writing is amazing and kept me riveted to every turn of the page. I truly recommend this series!
Synopsis: The exciting sequel to Immortalis Carpe Noctem.
Rule number one: humans and vampires don’t co-exist. One is the hunter and one is the prey.
Simple, right? Not for newly-turned vampire Alyssa. A surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the human friend she’s missed more than anything.
Now she has some explaining to do. However, that will have to wait. With the Acta Sanctorum hot on their heels, staying alive is more important than educating a human on the finer points of bloodlust.
