The Crimson Hunt began as a slow read for me, however as soon as the plot thickened and we began discovering the hidden depths of Ariel's world, I slowly began to fall in love with this novel and its story. With many secrets and people constantly dying, The Crimson Hunt is an interesting take on...well; I can't give away what they are without spoiling the big reveal!
Ariel is a girl whose life was destroyed by fire. But she is determined to be normal and live the fullest life possible and always seems to do the right thing. Her best friend, a charismatic girl who lives her life on the edge, tries to shake Ariel into living a life that is free and uninhibited. So, she decides to take her advice when she meets heart-throb Luca, a guy with killer eyes who seems to ignore her at every turn. After Ariel's world is rocked once again by death - and yes this death is so unexpected - she has to learn to trust the one person who may or may not have her best interests at heart.
Overall, The Crimson Hunt is full of wonderful surprises. One's I never expected and was shocked after they happened. It's a quick read with a lot of pizzazz, and I'm sure others will also fall in love with its charm. The author did a wonderful job of keeping me guessing and I would definitely read the next book in the series!
