Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Walker's latest is a humdrum foray into romantic paranormal adventure that's bogged down by thin characters and indistinguishable sex scenes. After bounty hunter Kane Winter witnesses the murder of his partner, Duke, during a botched drug deal, one of the only things he remembers is a beautiful, enigmatic woman who haunts his dreams. Turns out that woman is Kendall, a vampire and a Hunter for a supernatural cadre of vigilantes who protect humanity from the Hunters' "evil" counterparts. When Kane begins a quest to find Duke's killers, he discovers a knack for sniffing out and killing vampires, bringing him back in contact with Kendall. Together, they begin taking out bad guys and making frenzied vamp-hunter love, both of which grow tiresome, leading to a conclusion predictable to everyone except the characters involved. (July)

From the Inside Flap

Memories of that kiss they'd shared all those months flooded his mind. That small taste he'd had still lingered on his lips--and she didn't belong to his best friend. That was all he cared about. He'd wanted to gorge on her and couldn't. Or so he had thought. 
But he could have her. And damn, he thought, he would. Cupping her chin in his hands, he lifted her face to his as he whispered, "You have no idea what hearing that does to me." 
Slanting his mouth across hers, he buried one fist in her hair. Her lips parted under his as she gasped and he pushed his tongue inside the hot, wet cavern. Sliding his free hand down her back, he brought her body in line with his. The soft rise of her belly cuddled the aching length of his cock. 
 Kendall moaned into his mouth and Kane felt the hot lash of satisfaction. She felt it, too. He didn't know how he was so certain, but he was. There was a pressure against his mouth, just under the curve of her lips and then an icy sharp pain, followed by the coppery taste of blood in his mouth. 
He barely even took notice, but seconds later, Kendall had torn away from him. Rage tore through him at the lost of her body against his. He started to reach for her, but she lifted a hand, whispering harshly, "No." 
The moonlight splashed across her face, and Kane saw the dark stain on her mouth, and the gleaming white of her incisors. As he watched, she shuddered, spinning away. "Get away from me, Kane," she rasped. 
A slow smile curved up his lips. "Why?" 
She tossed him a cool glance. "I haven't fed. You look entirely too appetizing. Now go away."
"Appetizing, huh?" he mused, reaching up and stroking his chin. Studying her closely, he let the wide grin spread across his face. "I do have to admit, you look pretty delicious yourself." 
Kendall's response was that sexy little sneer he found so enticing. "You seem to forget--when I say appetizing, I actually mean eating," she drawled. Her eyes dropped to his neck and he was suddenly never so aware of the pulse of blood running through his veins. 
Kane ran his eyes down the sleek lines of her body, imagining what she looked like without that skin hugging top, the painted on jeans. His eyes lingered low on her body--he heard her sharp uptake of breath. Softly, he whispered, "So did I--of course, I'm focusing on a different part of the anatomy."

Simply put - they have great chemistry together.

I became bored with it and just couldn't make myself finish it.
I like a bit more equality between sex partners.

This is a very nice start for a series. In Walker's world, vampires, psychics, witches and wereanimals are policed by a group of their own, the fate-determined Hunters. Kendall is a 300 year old vampire who has to face her own personal demons. Kane is a human bounty hunter who at first thinks Kendall is his personal demon, but quickly learns otherwise. Simply put - they have great chemistry together. I read a LOT of sf/fanstary/romance/erotica and you can start to get desensitized, but Walker's writing puts a little zing in your blood :). The world and the story aren't really that complex (nothing like Kim Harrison or Charlaine Harris), but I'm hoping future books in the series will complicate things. On the down side, I was a little confused by the epilogue - I didn't know if this was supposed to be a preview for the next book (which it didn't seem like) or the beginning of a thread that weaves its way through all of the books. I look forward to the next one in this series. Hopefully it won't be too repetitive and we'll have a great new SF author on our hands! On a total side note, did anyone else think the cover for this book looks a little too much like L.A. Banks?

Unfortunately, this book did not live up to it's potential. Kendall and Kane have good chemistry, and it was a nice change for the woman to be the vampire with the advantage over the man. However, that did not make up for the plot not appearing until 2/3 of the way into the book. And, once they realized who the enemy was, instead of going after her, the reader is treated to 20 + pages of Kendall whining about how she can't lose Kane (really). The kick-butt vampire hunter is suddenly weeping every other page and her man has to comfort her.

It is romance, I expect sex. But, it just interfered with an already weak plot instead of enriching it. When they know their fellow hunter is in mortal danger, do they rush to his aid? No, they have sex. Several times. And, of course the man dominates the sex scenes. I like a bit more equality between sex partners. This book wasn't a bad read--if you have nothing better on your shelf. I highly recommend reading Sherrilyn Kenyon, or Angela Knight before picking this up.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kane Winter has been haunted by the night his partner, fellow bounty hunter Duke Monroe, died. Nightmares of vampires and a mysterious woman torment him until he finds her. Kendall, the woman he holds responsible for Duke's death, isn't just any vampire. She is a Hunter, dedicated to tracking down and destroying rogue vampires. Kane soon realizes that Kendall isn't the killer he envisions. But will the powerful attraction between them be enough when their lives are on the line?

HUNTING THE HUNTER offers a slightly different take on the world of vampires and other supernatural beings. Shiloh Walker has created an interesting world in which all vampires are neither good nor evil, but rather they make choices that determine how they use their abilities. This is my first Hunter book so I'm still absorbing the details of this world, but it is definitely one I intend to read more about.

Shiloh Walker has a definite gift at creating tension in her stories. There were times when I couldn't turn the pages rapidly enough as I just had to see what would happen next. The complexity of the story was a bit surprising and I enjoyed the flashbacks to Kendall's earlier years as it provided more understanding as to her current actions. It also helped temper Kendall's angst, which would have otherwise made her annoying but instead made her a sympathetic character.

One thing is a certainty with any book by Shiloh Walker- she can write one heck of a romance! The attraction between Kane and Kendall was strong and fast, with some very steamy scenes. Kane and Kendall belonged together and it was refreshing to read a story in which the two main protagonists recognized this immediately, regardless of their rather obvious differences.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Hunting the Hunter" is an enjoyable and interesting tale in a rather overcrowded genre - the vampire romance. Although at heart a 'lust turns to love' story there are lots of additional elements to keep the reader's interest.

Kendall is a female vampire, a Hunter whose mission is to weed out the 'evil' vampires, often partnered with werewolves or witches. Partnered with Duke, a shape shifter, they seek out vampires and terminate them. However, Kendall realises that someone is hunting her - a human. Kane Winter is a man with a mission, ever since his shapeshifter partner Duke was killed two years ago by a vampire. Kane has trained himself as a vampire hunter and has seventeen kills to his credit. When he sees Kendall he remembers her as the vampire involved in Duke's death and sets out to kill her.

A lot of novels in this genre would have drawn out the hero hunting the heroine angle to fill the entire book - in this story Shiloh Walker gifts her lead characters with a good dose of common sense and they very quickly realise that they are working together towards the same goal and stop trying to kill each other. It doesn't take long before Kane and Kendall act on their mutual attraction but before they spend much time together Kendall discovers a shocking secret - that the source of a significant amount of evil and murder can ultimately be laid at her door because of the actions of a vampire, Cat, that Kendall turned. Kendall and Kane must try to find Cat and kill her - but Cat is powerful and it's not that easy.

The romance, although a central part of this plot, wasn't the most interesting aspect. We are given several sex scenes between our two principle characters but far more interesting are the moral dilemmas that these characters face.
