Review; Hunters by Stefanie J. Pristavu

Rachel and Daniel broke every rule in the Hunter book.

Don’t turn humans into Hunters. Daniel did that when he saved Rachel from becoming a vampire bride.

Don’t travel beyond your assigned area. Assigned area? They’ve traveled half-way around the world in search for Vlad, the vampire boss.

Report all hunting activity to the Hunters’ High Council. There’s a Hunters’ High Council?

Don’t tell humans about the existence of paranormal beings. Ooopsy, they kinda let that one slip.

Don’t resist arrest and escape from your death sentence. Well, about that… If they’re to go down, they’re taking Vlad with them, especially since he screwed up both their lives.

The Council has a valid reason to want their heads, but Rachel and Daniel have more pressing matters to worry about. Like the screechy voices inside Rachel’s head which sing of death and destruction and the creepy Banshee who predicts the coming of a Hunter – vampire war. A war which Daniel and Rachel must trigger to save their race from extinction.
And Rachel seriously doubts that a head-on battle between the vampires and the Hunters will be their ticket out of the death sentence.

My thoughts
First off, I love the cover her eyes are so gorgeous, secondly I love the blurb, as soon as read it I knew I had to read this book, who can resist a book filled with broken rules and last but not least I loved the book, I loved how although it was a book with Vampires the main focus was the Hunters, it was refreshing to read a vampire book from a different perspective. 

The friendship/ relationship between Rachel and Daniel was brilliantly written and never felt forced I did find myself getting frustrated with the two of them on a occasion, well mainly Daniel but that to me showed the dynamic between the two and made the characters seem more real.

Vlad is your typical bad guy vampire who Daniel and Rachel are determined to bring down even if that means a huge death sentence over there heads if the hunters ever catch up with them.

Of course Daniel and Rachel aren't typical hunters they soon find out that there is more to them than they first realised.

I read this book in just over a day, in fact if I didn't have to work I would have finished it one day because once I picked it up the main problem I had was putting it down, a brilliant read, I hope to read more from this author.
