When we meet the Hunter again he and his young charge Hailen is heading away from the city. They join a caravan where things get pretty bad and the Hunter is forced to use his dagger to protect the young child , who actually calms the demon inside the hunter . When the hunter is forced to kill to keep the child safe, and to find the answers he needs.
I must say that Hailen is the perfect companion for the Hunter . He has such a good calming influence on the Hunter . Hailen is your typical little boy with such a special gift . You just want to cuddle him and hug him and love him . He has his good moments and his typical boy moments of wanting and whining. Buy what child doesn't have those moments .
The hunter in this book is becoming more and more human . He still has his half demon side that wants the blood of the evil . But the human side of him is starting to get his memories back and wants to find out what he was before becoming the Bucelarii . As he remembers the memories , you want to hug him and tell him that things will be ok. You also feel him start to think about his actions and how they work. He is growing and becoming more then just the killing machine he was in book one and two .
The author takes us on an adventure this time . We go along on a caravan ride with people you don't know if you should trust or not . We trek through the desert wasteland . We see him fight the Illusionist Cleric and the demons masquerading as people . The author paints such a stunning picture as you read this book . You will actually cheer for the Hunter and shed a tear every now and then . You will want to take care of Hailen and the hunter . You might get angry with the characters but don't throw your kindle . Kindles are expensive . But I will say you will enjoy this whole series . So if you want a great series check out the Bucelarii series . I suggest you read book one and two so you know what's going on in book three . So if you want a really good dark fantasy series that will leave you wanting more . Check them out , I promise you will not be disappointed
For the Hunter is Bucelari, half-human/half-demon. Possessed of a deadly dagger called Soulhunter and driven to kill by the demonic voice inside him. But every time he slays with the dagger, though it strengthens and heals his body, he brings the dark god Kharna one step closer to reviving and destroying the world.
But to find the answers of his past and protect Halien's life, the Hunter will be forced to use the dagger to satiate his driving need and protect the innocent child.
The Hunter's war with his nature only intensifies in the third book in the series. He tries so hard not to kill, not to feed his addiction. He knows the cost, he doesn't want to see the world end, and yet time and time again circumstance and the whispering voice drives him to use what will one day doom the world.
Unless he finds the answers in his past.
Peloquin peels back more of the Hunter's past as well as the activities of the Demons. The world grows larger, and the Hunter's goals ever sharper in stopping their plans and finding out just who he truly is. Even if that person is someone he may not like.
The setting maintains the Grimdark ascetic with Halien providing a glimmer of hope in the dark tale about addiction and redemption. The Hunter struggles hard to fight his need, and Pelonquin does phenomenal job translating that battle to the page along with keeping the story moving at a high-neck speed that keeps the pages turning.
If you're a fan of Grimdark Fantasy, Pelonquin is an author you have to read, and the Last of the Bucerlari is a phenomenal entry. I can't wait for book four!
I love this series. The Hunter is not your typical hero but something even better, someone we can relate to. He has gone through something and wants to reclaim his past. He wants to be better than he is presently and is starting to realize the damage to himself that the killing has done. And Hailen is the perfect light to all the darkness that Hunter has found himself. It just breaks your heart when he has to kill, even if it is for the right reason.
This is a great series filled with a lot of action and a great story. I love all of Any Peloquin’s books. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
I received Gateway to the Past from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
