Blurb: Théoden: Far be it from me to refuse an invitation from the Celestial Dragon King, Evander. Besides, what’s the point of living forever if you can’t have fun? A little distraction would serve me well. I still had so much to do this night. Children to Sire, a rebel hybrid to hunt down and a test to conduct with Noel that would surely elevate his status in my eyes. That is, if he passed. Apart from that, there was this matter of hunting Dante. Sure, I enlisted the assistance of wolf Alpha, Deacon, but I didn’t want to leave the hunt of Dante solely up to him and his pack, especially with the price being so high. I do know one thing, Dante better be worth it.
Noel: My training with Marco is advancing and the more I learn about what I am, the more I discover who I am. Maybe Théoden had a point when he told me that being a vampire is what I wanted. I don’t know. I do know that I find myself enjoying the powers and strength I possess. He really is making me into the vampire he wants me to be. I realize that even more now as I try to figure out who I should sire and why. This person will be my child, an extension of me. How do I want to be represented?
Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 33700 words in this novelette.
One of the many things I like about this series is you lose no time from one book to the next. Each book takes off where the other one stopped so it flows seamlessly. Hunted, by Nicholas Bella, is the 4th book in Season 2 and we are getting deeper and deeper into the worlds of the vampires, dragons, and werewolves.
Théoden continues to build his alliances meeting with the King of the dragons and the Alpha leader of the wolf pack. He wants some assurances from each of them and they agree for the most part, however, they have some contingencies as well.
The hunt is on with both vampires and wolves looking for the
half-breed, Dante. Each hoping to find him first and I have to admit I have been on pins and needles waiting for him to appear. I don’t know anything about him up to this point but I can’t shake the feeling that he is going to be a sexy badass and won’t hesitate to give them all a fight if that’s what they are looking for.
Each episode we meet more characters, but those new characters have never stood out, to me, as much as they do in this installment. Ryan, a human who wants nothing more than for Bruce to turn him and be his Daddy forever, is absolutely a riot. He is quick-witted, a huge flirt, loves to play the Daddy/son scenario, begs for an ass spanking, and through all of this he is smiling and winking. I love his character and hope he gets a lot of page time.
Another character we meet is Alessio, a dragon from King Evander’s house and he is a fun surprise and bonus for us, the readers, and Théoden, as he gets to pleasure him and be pleasured in return. Something they both enjoyed immensely and I enjoyed it as much because I had a smile the whole time they teased and played together.
Noel finally succumbs to the decree of siring his own child. He was insecure in his abilities as a newly turned vampire how he was supposed to turn a child. With Marco and Théoden’s help he finally understands his duties. I can’t help but feel there will be trouble down the line with Noel and his “son.” Noel, for as much as he is getting the hang of being a vampire and actually liking all of it for the most part, still has trouble casting aside his humanity for humans. I would think it would be hard to wipe that entirely from your mind but Marco makes it quite clear that he better do just that.
Hunted was a little slower paced plot-wise and was much heavier on the sex. But, with that said, they were all siring their children and Théoden was reinforcing his soldiers which put him in several situations to enjoy the pretty around him. You gotta do what ya gotta do, right?
We are almost to the end of this season. The next book will be the season finale and I can’t wait to see how Nicholas wraps up everything and I’m sure there will be more surprises as well. As always the author continues to hold my attention for the duration of the book. Once you get started it seems time just disappears. I know I’m definitely not ready to stop reading and finding out about all of the deliciousness Nicholas has to tease us with.
