Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Vampires continue to feud in the flashback-laced sequel to 2008's Blood Memories. Eleisha Clevon, one of the few survivors of Julian Ashton's serial destruction of his fellow vampires, seeks to gather others like her so she can spread the knowledge of feeding without killing through psychic memory manipulation. Joining her are Philip, a once-feral vampire reluctantly converted to her cause, and telepathic human Wade. When they meet up with reclusive vampire Rose de Spenser and her ghostly cousin Seamus, Eleisha urges a move to a safe haven in Portland, Ore., as the paranoid Julian wants them all dead. Hendee smartly handles unusual concepts like the vampires' unique supernatural powers and Julian's drive to destroy his own race, but stilted language, uneven characterization and a choppy narrative style prevent this tale from standing out in its overcrowded field. (Oct.)

Format: Paperback
Following the concluding events in Blood Memories, the ruthless vampire Julian Ashton has fled back to Europe. And Eleisha Clevon has forged a new life with fellow vampire Phillip and the psychic human Wade. But she has been secretly corresponding with another vampire. Eleisha and Rose have a vision to provide a safe haven for vampires that don't want to kill humans, safe from Julian. It seems there are other vampires out there that have escaped Julian's killing spree.

Barb Hendee has created a different world of vampires, where the vampires are the hunted and live in hiding. Each character is given a dramatic backstory, with complex relationships and motivations. Incredibly suspenseful and eerily vivid, this sequel is once again fast-paced and hard to put down.

This dark fantasy series continues to impress me. I enjoyed this installment even more than the first. It wasn't quite as dark and bleak, with Eleisha and Rose's idea of a better life for everyone. With powerful characters and an impressive storyline, vampire and urban fantasy fans shouldn't miss this unique series.

Eleisha is one of my favorite vampires. Even in her undead state she cares deeply for others and hopes to create a community for herself and her small group. The characters in this novel are all so engaging and interesting. Even Julian is delightfully complex. And the stories these vampires discover about one another are interconnected in strange, wonderful and sometimes contradictory ways. These are vampires with human problems (as well as supernatural ones), which makes them easy to relate to, worry about and spend time with enjoying a laugh.

HUNTING MEMORIES tells of Eleisha, who receives a communication acknowledging her status as a vampire and letting her know there are others like her in the world. The difference is - she's learned a way to draw blood from her victims without killing them - and her discovery will divide the existing vampire community in this tense thriller, recommended for any fantasy holding.

Format: Paperback
Hunting Memories closely follows the events of Blood Memories, but if you can follow an out of sequence episode of your favorite TV show, you should be fine if you pick up this one first. And if you are a fan of The Noble Dead Saga, you will probably want to - follow the author!
Julian Ashton is a vampire who lacks the telepath abilities that let vampires adjust the short term memories of their food supply. Resenting this, he resolved to kill off all telepathic vamps so that he could be the master, instead of a freak. It was Julian who issued in the era of killing humans while feeding, and all the vampires he makes think this is the norm - the law. One human he turned, Eliesha, was given a unique assignment: to be caretaker for his immortal but helpless father, a once proud Lord of an estate in Wales condemned to endless senility.
But, far away from the watchful eye of Julian, Eliesha's latent telepathy emerges, and she rediscovers the possibility of feeding without murdering.
Now Eliesha becomes the leader of a small but growing number of vampires and their friends who want to come out of hiding but fear discovery by Julian.
One vampire, Philip, is tormented by bloodlust which jeopardizes the fragile new order. Perfect love casteth out fear, but in Philip's case, this is reversed. Fear of losing Eliesha has to overturn his love of killing.
I have one major objection to this book, so if you are a Hendee fan please skip the rest of this paragraph. This is chick fic. The estrogen is so thick that virtually all the xy chromosome characters are unmanned and demasculated. They're what some females think men ought to be: domesticated; and the ones that don't play well with others must be either tormented or psychotic.

Format: Paperback
This was a great follow up to the 1st book and I'm thoroughly pleased. The characters in this book jump right off the page; you can't put the book down once you start.

The story picks up where the last one left off. Elisha is looking for other Vampires like herself and living in Seattle with Phillip and Wade when she gets a letter from a Vamp in San Francisco named Rose who says she needs help.

She talks Phillip and Wade into taking a trip to San Fran to bring Rose back to Portland and start a sort of safe haven for lost Vampires.

Meanwhile Wade is struggling with his jealousy over Phillip and Elisha's relationship as well as his own purpose in this scheme. Where as Phillip is trying his best to console Elisha by feeding off of mortals with out killing them, but finding it extremely difficult. The author eludes to an attraction between Phillip and Elisha in this installment as well, and their relationship grows considerably.

When the 3 of them get to San Fran and find Rose she is not alone, but living with a Ghost (her dead nephew). Things are brought to light when they all share memories like they did in the 1st book by telepathy.

When Rose introduces Elisha to a elder Vampire named Robert it rocks the boat. One Phillip is threatened, two Robert is used to being in charge, and 3 Robert has a whole mess of rules that he believes all Vampires should live by. Roberts character is a great addition to the story, but Robert brings us back to Julian (the bad Vampire from the first book) who has banished himself to his old manor in Wales.

Julian lives in fear that the old rules will be reestablished and therefore he would be killed.
