IMO Your hero is a Sanguinar why withhold all that information till the very last minute Missed the boat there Andreas New leader of the Slayers Very intrigued by this guy He has a ton of presence and sounds sexy Love the pointy ears but why the hell are they called the Slayers I m intrigued by his bargain with Joseph and the trade they made I like the possibility of him with the Gerai human Carmen His reaction to her was very telling As long as she gets her act together and stops acting like a selfish indignant brat mini rant I really don t get this girl s deal Her flippant ungrateful attitude towards her adoptive father Joesph is super annoying and over the top The poor man She thinks he accepted to be her adoptive father out of obligation and she s offended by that Common sense reason seems to be missing here You finally got what you wanted and now you re unhappy with it Pssht The only reason she offers herself as part of the trade with the Slayers is to get away from Joseph and Dabyr, never mind the fact that the man has given her everything she could ask for and took her in when she had no place else to go She jumped at this opportunity to get away from Joseph What a peach If it wasn t for Andreas I would have wished for someone to chuck their shoe at this twit and be done with it Nicholas the scarred Theronai with the beautiful kind eyes He s too sweet to be left alone Please author fix it What I wasn t impressed with How many different kind of Synestrians are there Every time someone has an encounter with these monsters they are described differently Some look like wolves with shark teeth, others are human like with no face or missing fingers with odd joints and scaly patchy skin, some are like snakes, some are giant centipedes, dolphin like fishes with tentacles, giant walking roaches think Men in Black , dogs with green glowing eyes, etc etc These things come in all shapes and sizes and are continuously changing in looks and breed in every single book Is there a reason for this At first I assumed there were sub species, different kinds, but now I m beginning to think Butcher makes them up as she goes along for the hell of it If they are interbreeding or using hosts for bodies then it needs to be explained, cleared up This is 5 books in, the world building really needs to be better than this.Nika WTH is wrong with you I like this girl but her sister Andra s overprotective obsessive controlling idiocy is rubbing off on her The way she cornered Tynan and tried to strong arm him into staying instead of helping Logan and Hope was such a WTF moment for me It made me want to smack her Her whiny ungrateful obnoxious attitude towards him got under my skin the most, acting like Tynan did nothing to help Tori Are you kidding me She pretty much was treating him like a leper and a servant just like some of Theronai guys do all the time Left a bad taste in my mouth Not everything is about your sister Nika so settle down.Still not a big fan of how Butcher writes her heroines The scene I just mentioned with Nika and that whole drama with Carmen is perfect example of that Everyone has their stupid moments I get it But one track minded denseness and selfish tendencies are one too many for my tastes There s only so much TSTL moments I can take So far out of the entire ensemble cast Nika, Grace and Hope are the only tolerable root worthy ladies Now I can truthfully say that I read all the previous books just to seeof Logan and Tynan, though they are manipulative bastards And I am really glad that at least Logan found his better part The lead shifts from the Theroni warriors to the Sanguinar, as the self sacrificing and a bit manipulative Logan, takes the lead in this newest entry to Butcher s Sentinel Wars.Despite the fact please don t shoot me for this that I ve had a hard time keeping the Sanguinar straight as individuals, I was really looking forward to this story shedding some light shed on the blood drinking Sanguinar Race and their secret project I ve always wondered why the Theroni warriors were so distrustf The lead shifts from the Theroni warriors to the Sanguinar, as the self sacrificing and a bit manipulative Logan, takes the lead in this newest entry to Butcher s Sentinel Wars.Despite the fact please don t shoot me for this that I ve had a hard time keeping the Sanguinar straight as individuals, I was really looking forward to this story shedding some light shed on the blood drinking Sanguinar Race and their secret project I ve always wondered why the Theroni warriors were so distrustful of and so unwilling to give their blood to their Sanguinar allies, especially in light of the fact that those allies healing powers have come in handy so many times through out the series.After getting a little ways into the story and armed with a littleknowledge of the Sanguinar s struggle, I just couldn t see how Logan was ever going to get a happily ever after with Hope a woman with uber yummy blood, some not quite human powers, and a big mental block in her head where her past should be and when I got to the the last few chapters I was afraid his story line was going to be continued and not wrapped up until the next book There did end up being closure for them here insert big sigh of relief her though it s sort of rushed On a side note about how the story was put together, Logan s story does get most of the screen time but with a lotgoing on in Blood Hunt than just Logan and Hope, often a scene between them would ramp up to an exciting point and then shift to another part of the story because, as was the case in the last book, Blood Hunt is an ensemble piece In addition to the main thread with Logan and Hope we briefly touch up with Caine and Sybil who is coping with the changes brought on by her mother s death and with Nika and Maddox but only in conjunction with Nika s completely damaged sister Tori We get a small bit with Jackie who is apparently every warrior s match but who wants no man and get just enough of the soulless Iain to make me hope that somehow there is a loophole for him in the future There is also a new wrinkle added to the series as naked Slayers come a calling, and the story has a few other small bits with other characters woven in here and there However, even with all those threads weaving through the story, I was slightly disappointed that the formerly paralyzed Torr and Grace, the woman who sacrificed so that he could be whole, never come out of the background guess Butcher might be saving them for a book where their thread is the main one So, bottom line is that I liked Blood Hunt, though it didn t knock the previous book out of my favorite of the series spot, and since Butcher has a lot of balls in the air story wise, it will be interesting to see what happens next As far as starting here if you are new to the series, I wouldn t recommend it, and old fans who haven t done a series reread before starting Blood Hunt might want to stop about half way into the book and do a second read through of the character list at the front of the book it s easier to digest somehow after having seen the characters interacting together a bit 3.5 stars This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 5 Stars I read this September 5, 2011 and re read February 5, 2013.This

it Interesting that all the books up to this point have been centered on Theronai Immortal Warriors and we see their back and chest up to their nosebut not their eyes But this book cover we see his whole face on the first book to center on a Sanguineir One of the five races of Sentinels Where to start So much happened in this book It is centered on Logan, a leader among the Sanguiner who has spent most of his life running Project Lullaby with Tynan another Sanguiner His race is starving because there is not enough strong blood out there Since his race are in alliance with Theronai the warriors and heal them and they share blood in exchange.it is pretty important to find new sources of strong blood Theronai do not trust the Sanguiner and basically have kept them starving by not sharing blood unless they need healing Project Lullaby secret plan is their answer to this problem view spoiler They are finding and matching up couples who are of strong blood and manipulating them into falling in love.encouraging them to have children with their promise to allow their children to share blood with the Sanginuer when they are of age In return, they protect them, make sure they have what they want and need and heal them from all disease hide spoiler Logan is in the process of helping one of these couples escape and encounters a savoir himself Hope how ironic is her name She

in the middle of a battle with a Synestryn demon view spoiler She saves him by sharing her blood with Logan.drags him out and he knows she is of strong blood and would make a great candidate for his PL hide spoiler Logan can t have her no matter how much he is attracted to her and knows she is destined for a man of strong blood He can never have a mate because he feels a strong sense of responsibility to his people.he can t take this woman as his if she could save many down the road by pairing up with another man But before that happens he has to help her fins her friend Rory, a girl at the shelter who has disappeared And in doing so needs to spend time with her before he can get her back to Dabyr stronghold and safety.Hope is a great characterstrong, sassy and kind I really like her and love the attraction between these two characters as it slowly grows over time There is so much to this story that I can t even begin to describe here This series must be read in order because little details pop out that build on all these back stories going on through the series The author is constantly building the foundation for future stories too We find that Hope was sent by another people view spoiler The Temprocia Hope said, I am like you, or what you should have been if the solaric hadn t cursed you We know now that Powerful Human Men invaded Athanasia, then abducted and raped Athaniasian women Their children are the Sanguinier living in Darkness Then why were the Slayers and Theronai cursed Has anyone sent women for them Because we know the women that are hooking up with Theronai are Theronai women who carry the DNA and blood in them from other Theronai hide spoiler What is stuck in my mind.is Hope.she needs the sunlightshe feels better, rejuvenated when she does get in the sun.in her vision she is on a beach in the sun.I know she is view spoiler from another world.but what intrigues me is SamsonJackie says he is a baby human demon.and he will die.but he also thrives on sunlight hide spoiler Is there some tie As for Hope and Loganthis author loves her angst that is for sureone of my favorite scenes between these two is view spoiler when she is being taken away by a Synestryn and she looks down at logan and untied the fire whip chain so that it would burn through the tree to free them and again when she realized what she could do and refused to leave..and things turned around with Krag hide spoiler I was mentally jumping up and down The love scene in the barn was beautifully written, not just mechanical.This was a great installment.the author took a story which was developing and gave it a great push I wish this review could contain all the interesting things that went on Ms Butcher answered many questions and created so manyLove it

delivers a dark, gritty, action packed story that held me spellbound A smooth storyline and continuously evolving arc engages the reader and sets a fast pace The premise revolves around Logan and Hope two fantastic characters whose innate loyalties often overrides their wants and needs This book is a mind blowing whirlwind to read as Ms Butcher goes in depth into multiple character storylines and POV s which I loved We don t see a lot of our previous heroes and heroines, but we do get some staggering scenes with Sybil, Joseph, and meet some new characters that clues us into future storylines that promise this series will continue to blow us away.Hope is strong, intelligent, and street savvy Abandoned as a child, she grew up on the streets She doesn t trust many and Logan s charm doesn t make him an instant good guy with her She has made a life for herself as an artist but never forgot where she came from and spends time helping in the shelter where she was raised When she meets Logan, she sees something in him that calls to her on a visceral level but she doesn t trust him.Logan and his brother Tynan have spent hundreds of years, the bearers of an cruel curse, to bring together compatible mates that will ensure them a race of humans whose blood will keep them alive When Logan chances upon Hope, he takes her blood and realizes that it is the ultimate essence and he will do anything to possess her for Project Lullaby As he spendstime with her, he begins to want her for himself even though he knows he cannot She must mate with a chosen But Logan doesn t take into account Hope s wants and needs.Hope is trying to find her friends that are missing from the homeless shelter Logan makes a deal with her He will help her find them if she agrees to testing and meeting potential mates While Logan pushes Hope towards accepting his offer, Hope pushes back, letting Logan know that manipulation and coercion isn t appreciatedIs that how you live your life Counting the cost of your service to others so the debt can be repaid It only seems fair that if I help you, you would offer me something in return Fair I see Thanks for your offer but no thanks I m not the kind of person who is willing to strike a deal with an asshole As Hope and Logan spendtime together, Hope does everything she can to understand his life and the war he is involved in She also makes it perfectly clear that while she can not be his peoples savior, she can be his.This story is rich in action and suspense The romance blends with well with the main conflict Sensual emotional love scenes areplentiful which I greatly appreciated We seerealism in Hope and Logan s relationship The Sanguiner seemmodern and less desperate acting than the Sentinels While it is in the Sanguiner s best interest to find compatible mates, they useMachiavellian methods in obtaining what they want They don t employ the same hunter prey tactics as the Sentinels and the Slayers do I enjoyed the easy going and humorous banter between Logan and Hope He doesn t scare or intimidate herAre you saying he was trying to fix me up with another guy After that chauvinistic asshole I m never trusting a Sanguiner s opinion of men again Ms Butcher continues to change up and expand on the arc to ensure no repetition or boredom What I truly love about Ms Butcher s books, and hopes she never changes, is her concept of good and evil She blurs the lines The Sentinels and the Sanguiner use nefarious means to achieve their goals as much as the Synestryns We see lines being crossed, misconceptions capitalized on, and actions being questioned You never know till the end how it will all play out.Her characters are rich in depth, development, and personality Ms Butcher imparts diversity and individualism into her character dialogue You are able to connect to them rather them just reading about them Each one is viable enough for their own book Ms Butcher s style of writing intertwines new and old story lines in a way that doesn t leave you over whelmed by the sheer amount of knowledge she imparts.The ending is a mixture of explosive action, finger clenching tension, and a mind blowing conclusion I honestly couldn t see how it would end in the way I wanted but Ms Butcher once again manages to achieve the impossible The Sentinel Wars continues to be one of my favorite series and I look forward to the next, title and release date to be announced.Rating A Synopsis They are the Sentinels Three races, ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities to protect humanity against their

ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities to protect humanity against their eternal foes the Synestryn Now, for one Sentinel, the only way to reclaim her forgotten past is to follow the blood.Hope appeared out of nowhere, naked and alone, a woman without past The only thing she knows is that she is imbued with a strange power It s in her blood And two men want to possess it.One is Logan, a Sanguinar demon fighter who needs Hope s essence to survive As a vampire he s well equipped to find her a like blooded mate whose progeny could sustain his race for generations The other is Krag, a Synestryn lord whose desire is to enslave Hope, and drain her of the lifeforce With it he could control humanity forever.When Hope and Logan both fall prey to Krag, a powerful desire grows between them But is it enough to thwart their captor s diabolical plan and his demon warriors, and survive a vampire s destiny written in blood My Thoughts I loved this installment So many new revelations Things are coming together and also still falling apart A number of our beloved characters are on the edge, but others are thriving and finding hope.I really liked Logan and Hope as a couple I love their reactions to each other It was just so frustrating watching him constantly try to keep her at arms length Project Lullaby is important, but man That was driving me insane Still is was so nice to get so much inner monologue from Logan We ve seen his POV in previous books, but since this was his book and we ve hadinformation regarding Project Lullaby, we get to see that he doesn t actually enjoy manipulating people He and the other Sanguinar do it to save themselves, but by saving themselves, the other races benefit as well I never thought it through that far before, but if the Sanguinar were to die out, who would heal the Theronai when they got those serious injuries Who would develop antidotes to counteract Synestryn poison Who would help them be able to have children again The Theronai aren t very kind to the Sanguinar, but they need to get over some things Whatever caused the rift between the races happened so long ago It seems that they are developing tentative truces, so here s hoping that all works out Hope was a pretty awesome heroine She went after what she wanted when it came to Logan without making an idiot out of herself And she was strong And selfless She was just a damned good person I like her She did so much to help even when she had no idea wtf was going on When she got her memories back at the end and showed Logan where she d come from, I was happy Someone out there is looking out for the Sanguinar They need it.Some thoughts that I posted in a thread about this book view spoiler It seems that someone outside of the Athnasians have been watching over the Sanguinar I m wondering if the Slayers have someone like that for them, too The sad part about it for the Sanguinar is that the race they originally descend from thinks they re revolting and can barely stand to share blood with them Everyone s revulsion of the Sanguinar has bothered me since book 1 when Drake nearly bit Logan s head off over Helen I get that they don t like the fact that the Sanguinar have so much power over them when drinking from them, but the way they treat them rubs me the wrong way Those scenes where they treat them badly are always hard for me to read Even before we learned just what secrets the Sanguinar have been keeping from the others and I didn t trust them it was hard to read They might have to drink blood to live and they have the power to do some horrible things to people with that blood, but they do so much to help And it sounds like long ago when strong blood wasplentiful they went around helping people all the damn time It just seems so wrong to me for the Theronai to behave the way they do towards the Sanguinar As much as I hate the manipulation the Sanguinar use to make Project Lullaby work and the secrets the keep from the rest of the Sentinels, if they died out, they d all end up dead I seriously think the Theronai to re evaluate the way they treat the Sanguinar hide spoiler As for the rest of the book view spoiler Joseph is going to get himself in trouble with Lyka I m just waiting for it to happen Though she won t be able to stop his pain, so how will that work Speaking of pain and dying souls, Torr and Cain are on the fast track to dead souldom As soon as Sybil said she wanted to leave to be on her own, Cain s leaves started falling super quick And I know he won t tell her about it He wouldn t want to hold her back like that Then there s Torr who s apparently getting really violent I am gonna die if SKB doesn t give me his and Grace s story soon I wonder what Iain will do He knows his luceria reacts to Jackie, but his soul is dead, so he thinks it won t really help him at all, but Jackie isn t trying to be with anybody right now hide spoiler view spoiler I like Logan and Hope together, but that back and forth was killing me I understood why Logan was acting that way, but I wanted to pull my hair out Here, unlike the Theronai, he didn t have to worry about some skittish woman who could help him trying to run away and he kept trying to give her away to other people Without explaining why he kept trying to do it I would have been pissed in her place, too hide spoiler view spoiler Is Carmen being set up for Andreas That guy is interesting But considering his family is supposed to have a pure bloodline, mating with a human when mixing Slayer blood with humans makes for weak Slayers doesn t sound like something his people would be happy about hide spoiler On Tori view spoiler I sure hope she can hang in there She s about ready to kill someone and it might not be Zillah at this rate Also, can Andra please stop calling her sisters baby That drives me insane Yes They have been horribly hurt Tori most of all But after going through all of that, it feels so degrading when she calls her baby I felt the same way when she did that crap to Nika hide spoiler On Nicholas view spoiler TheI see him, theI want him to find his match I hate that people see his scars and are afraid of him And he keeps getting so injured on top of those scars he s already got to live with His poor hand hide spoiler Rory view spoiler She was thinking during the time that one of the Synestryn guards was taking her to Krag that she had stuck around in that area for 2 years to stay close to the one person that helped block her visions of the demons Was she talking about Hope I can t think of anyone else she could have been talking about hide spoiler Sybil view spoiler That poor woman She spent so much time in the body of a child with a woman s mind and being completely protected that she s never really been able to live I don t blame her for wanting to go out on her own I just hope she can protect herself I wonder how far down the line her story is and who she will end up bonded to Also, did anyone else pick up on Maura having gone to the shelter Hope volunteered at When she said a girl with black eyes and way too small clothes had come in, I just knew it was Maura After all, she was wearing a little girl s clothes when she started growing hide spoiler Another great installment from Shannon K Butcher Hope appeared out of nowhere, naked and alone, a woman without a past The only thing she knows is that she is imbued with a strange power It s in her blood And two men want to posses it One is Logan, a Sanguiner demon fighter who needs Hope s essence to survive The other is Krag, a Synestryn lord whose desire is to enslave Hope, and drain her of the lifeforce When Hope and Logan both fall prey to Krag, a powerful desire grows between them But is it enough to thwart their captor s diabolical plan and his demon warriors, and survive a vampire s destiny written in blood Fifth in the Sentinel Wars paranormal romance series revolving around several

bad.The fo Fifth in the Sentinel Wars paranormal romance series revolving around several groups of sentinels charged with preventing demons from breaking through The couple focus is on Logan and Hope.My TakeThis story isof a bridge in that Butcher introduces a new species and new problems in this story, opening the possibilities even wider With all the fallout from earlier stories, there are a number of problems which need resolution and Blood Hunt furthers the potentials both good and bad.The focus here is on Project Lullaby, a plan by which the Sanguinar intend to create a food supply for their race There is a lot of reciprocal rescuing going on in this story Whew Butcher keeps the action moving and provides yetdepth to the various involved groups Including a scary close up of one of Solarc s Wardens I do feel sorry for Logan So attracted and so forbidden Butcher had a very clever solution in this.I got to thinking about the demonic behavior of the Synestryn Krag and I realized he is similar behavior wise to human males who think they can boss women around and beat them All the ugliest actions of man The sentinel men are several steps up from this although, I do have issues with how they approach their particular romance needs Did the Solarc ever consider that the children of the men he was punishing were his own grandchildren It s been an intriguing series Not one of the best, but I do appreciate Butcher s skill at the long tease Since the first story, Burning Alive , Butcher has dropped the teeniest hints and slowly increased up to teeny, and not so teeny up toyou get the ideaabout the true origins of the sentinels and the Sanguinar Each time giving us just a bitI have to confess it s this tease that has me coming back I want Grampa to get his The

reliant upon a small group and all the Sanguinar efforts are channeled into it Slayers are a Sentinel group who slay Sentinels who have gone beyond the pale for some reason, Slayers and Theronai are enemies The Band of the Barren are Sentinels living on borrowed time, hoping to find their soulmates Theronai are a subgroup of Sentinels who battle the Synestryn They battle in male female pairs and it is only when the men are paired with their mate that they have a chance of surviving Well, and some amazing skills at fighting Gerai are humans who know all about the Sentinels and the Synestryn They re backup support Synestryn is a generic name for a wide variety of demons intent on enslaving the human race.The CoverThe cover is a background of smoky purples and a black clad, very young looking Logan holding a sword before him and wearing jeans and a black leather vest open to reveal his muscled chest and arms The title is true enough as Logan is continually on a Blood Hunt in this

aid Hope in her quest The two soon discover that the other is hiding secrets and that a terrifying foe is determined to use them for his own nefarious ends ReviewOne of the most appealing aspects of the Sentinel Wars is the multiplicity of story lines While some readers may find this distracting because there is a lot going on, for me, this not only enhances the world building and the overall story arc we are finally given details of the third group of Sentinel warriors the Slayers , it also makes it easier to identify with the different characters because they are so well developed across the various books However, for this reason it is crucial to read the series in order The focus in this book is on the Sanguinars, who have been a morally ambiguous group until now and it is particularly interesting to see things from their perspective The suffering they must endure and the threat to their race is as compelling as that of the Theronai and explains much about their secretive behavior Logan and Hope are an intriguing couple with wonderful chemistry It is a sign of Butcher s writing skill that she can create a character such as Logan who comes across both as honorable and self sacrificing but also as manipulative and conniving It was difficult to warm up to him in previous books but he charmed me completely in this one Like the other heroines in the series, Hope is strong willed and plays a significant role in the action another highlight The conflict between Logan s growing attraction to Hope and his duty to his people is at the heart of the story The way in which everything comes to a head and the resolution of their romance makes for a satisfying read even though the push and pull between them is frustrating at times As mentioned above, the secondary characters are well written and several will obviously be featured in their own books Jackie and Iain s book is next but I m also interested in seeing what happens with Joseph and his Slayer counterpart Andreas Overall, Blood Hunt is a great addition to an excellent series
