Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Argeneau family has a secret . . . one of their own is a rogue vampire!

Nicholas Argeneau was once a successful hunter who went after rogue vampires who broke the immortal law. Except no one has mentioned his name in the last fifty years, not since he turned into a rogue himself. But once a hunter, always a hunter. When Nicholas sees a bloodthirsty sucker terrifying a woman, it's second nature for him to come to her rescue. He had no idea he would also want to kiss her senseless . . .

One minute Josephine Willan is taking in a breath of fresh air, and the next sharp fangs are heading straight for her neck! Luckily, a gorgeous stranger saves her life . . . and gets locked up for his troubles. Can a man who kisses so lovingly and passionately really have committed the crime he's accused of? Jo isn't so sure . . . and she's determined to prove that this renegade hunter is worth fighting for.

Customer Reviews

Really love Lynsay Sands books and the Argeneau series is one not to miss.
What I didn't like was that Ms. Sands is starting to prevail on leaving the stories hanging with hardly an ending to the book.
M. Hebdige
The books I loved -- "The Accidental Vampire", no mystery just fun with a lot of interesting characters and a great romance.

This review has spoilers

This book is a very weirdly plotted book-and honestly may be the one that makes me stop reading her vampire books. Nicholas, one of the Argeneau vampires believes he killed a pregnant woman shortly after his lifemate died in a tragic accident 50 years ago. He's been on the run from the vampire council while hunting rogue vampires ever since. He chases Ernie, a rogue vampire, to just outside of a party at the Hunter's compound where Josephine (mortal) is a guest. He saves Josephine from Ernie and discovers that they are lifemates.

The story then descends into the normal Lynsay Sands "the couple can't get together too soon" sex that isn't sex-i.e.; they are interrupted while kissing, while having dream sex, phones ring, etc. Honestly I've seen it before from her too many times. I probably would have given up on the book if I hadn't been stuck on a bus with nothing else to read. I used to find this part of the story fun, but this time if felt like she'd cut and pasted scenes from previous books.

And then, on page 214 we get a plot. In about 150 pages Nicholas confesses the crime he "committed." While Sam (the lawyer from Rouge Hunter and Joanne's sister) couldn't lawyer her way out of a paper bag, Jo is able to see that Nicholas didn't kill the woman, his memory has been wiped, and that he was set up for something his dead lifemate was about to tell him. What's more, after Josephine gets hurt and Nicholas is forced to turn her into an immortal, she manages to convince the Hunters and Lucian that Nicholas might be innocent and that they need to investigate further.

And then the story almost literally stops.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Nicole Kohler on December 31, 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As an avid reader of Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series, I have generally looked forward to every new book, but after The Immortal Hunter and now The Renegade Hunter I may be taking my reading elsewhere.

The Immortal Hunter was a terribly boring and flat book, but that would be a different review. The Renegade Hunter picks up where that book left off, continuing the story of Nicholas, the rogue.

While I thoroughly enjoyed Jo's personality (and found it refreshing after so many 'professional' types that were used in many of the books beforehand) I felt cheated as the story unfolded.

There are a ton of unresolved plots from the previous book and then even more are added into this one. What made this book horrid, instead of disappointing was the ending. There is none. It's like the author just decided "Eh, that's enough" and sent it on its way. At least in the first book there was mention of the second book coming to wrap up some of the loose ends (which it doesn't). This one just... stops.

Also, the idea of Enforcers (vampire cops) that are supposedly amazing at their jobs yet can't keep a mortal female in a room or house let alone NOT let the bad guy in after them is getting tiresome. Apparently they should all be fired because they fail at their jobs? This is a running theme and it happens a lot and it's quite stupid at this point.

There are also several inconsistencies between books. Example: The first once says that the child of an immortal and a no-fanger has a one in three chance of being a sane no-fanger, a crazy no-fanger or stillborn. It also mentioned that the villain would take immortal women and use them to father his sons (who are all no-fangers in the first book).

31 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Anna Hope VINE VOICE on April 6, 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story picks up in rural Canada where the previous book, The Rogue Hunter, left off. Decker Argeneau Pimms is a vampire Enforcer who along with some friends is searching for Nicholas Argeneau, his cousin, who went rogue 50 years back and has recently been implicated in some local biting no-no's. They find Nicholas alright, but only because he wants them to as he needs their help to rescue two girls who have just been kidnapped by another ruthless gang of rogues.

The beginning of this story was as contrived, useless, and confusing as the bumbling of it's characters. The overall storyline got no better and during the three days that Decker and his rescued lifemate are together before the story ends, the only bright spot was when they spent the second day like bunnies. Ms. Sands can still right a love scene with the best of them. But overall this story was the flattest yet in a series that once captivated me with it's imagination and fantastic writing. While Lucerne is still my favorite vamp male ever, I'm sad to say his plethora of relatives is starting to feel monotonously repetitive.In a lesser author you might expect this but Ms.Sands has shown she is capable of reaching far above her current level of writing. Here's hoping the next installment gets better. It couldn't get much worse than this quick read.

The Series in order:
A Quick Bite
Love Bites
Single White Vampire
Tall, Dark, & Hungry
A Bite to Remember (personally where I think things started going south)
Bite Me if You Can
The Accidental Vampire
Vampires Are Forever
Vampire, Interrupted
The Rogue Hunter ( where you knew the series was in trouble...)
The Immortal Hunter
