A child is born...into the final showdown of Vampire and Hunter
The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child… Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.
The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.
Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.
While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter, and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man.
Blood Descent is book three in the Blood Hunter series, and before I start the review I want to urge you to read the first two books before reading this book, I don’t think this book works all that well as a stand alone, you really need the backstory in order to fully appreciate this book.
This book follows Konrad and Maggie. Konrad is kind of a jerk, okay he’s totally a jerk (he deserves stronger language when you consider that he blew up a bar in the last book). Konrad is on a mission in this book, he wants to find the device that harnesses the power vampires.
Much like in the prior two books this is once again a story that involves a hunter and a vampire, and this book is no different, Konrad being the hunter and Maggie being the very young vampire. It’s completely understandable that Konrad (being a hunter and all) is really against having feelings for Maggie, something he totally hates that is developing with him.
For me Konrad in this book is not my favorite, I actually kind of border on hate him. He’s abusive to Maggie and she just takes it, which is really hard for me to read over and over. I really don’t like women who take any kind of abusive from men, so between me not liking Konrad because he’s a jerk, I also really didn’t enjoy reading Maggie at certain points because she came off as too much of a pushover for me. Maggie did have some redeeming qualities for me, she is a smart girl and she at heart is a good person, which I appreciate. I just think she could have done better than Konrad, but in the end they of course get their happy ending.
If you read the first two books you should definitely read this one, it continues the story lines from the first two books. I think anyone who likes paranormal romances, especially between two groups of people who are suppose to hate each other would probably enjoy this series.
