However, Scarlett and her friends aren’t the only ones on the hunt—someone else is chasing the wolf. Someone with no reservations about collateral damage. Now Scarlett and her allies must stop both the rogue wolf and the deadly hunter before the full moon rises and all hell breaks loose.
Filled with the same suspense and wit readers loved in Dead Spots and Trail of Dead, this may be Scarlett Bernard’s most harrowing adventure yet…
What I liked: In the book world where the main characters are all about the powers they have and how they use them, Scarlett Bernard is an anomaly. She negates magic. Anyone within her "radius" loses all magic ability. That's quite different, if I say so.
The previous book, Trail of the Dead, ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and I was anxious to see what Ms Olson had in store for her characters. Scarlett made a decision at the end of the book that has many consequences in Hunter's Trail. Not only is her decision causing problems but it appears Will, the leader of the local werewolves, is having trouble controlling and leading his pack.
I enjoyed how both Scarlett and Jesse have grown. They are attracted to each other but not jumping into bed. They are taking it slow, perhaps too slowly?? Each is beginning to stand up for their self when dealing with the supernatural leaders. It's also interesting to see any fight scene with Scarlett present. Whether it be vampire, werewolf, witch or whatever, when she's near, the creatures end up fighting as humans.
I like how Ms Olson switches between Scarlett's and Jesse's point of view, although I can see where some readers might not like it.
What I didn't like: Parts of Hunter's Trail seemed to move slowly. It was still interesting but slow in parts. I wanted more Eli, but that's a reader's choice.
Overall, a very good entry into the Scarlett Bernard Series. Yes, she finally makes a choice between Jesse and Eli. It surprised me how mature she was about it too.
Recommended!!! (must read the first two books first or you will be lost)
