He killed her lover, and for that crime and many others, Two Majors cut off the vampire Abraham's head, reduced his remains to ashes, and scattered them to the winds. Now each night she wanders New York, freed from the chains of heroin addiction but longing still for Theroen's kiss, the taste of blood on his lips, the echo of his thoughts in her ears.

Since I am married to the author, I cannot pretend to be at all objective, though I will try… but I hope this helps people form an idea about Blood Hunt, the follow-up to The Blood that Bonds, and what they can expect from it. I am also trying to avoid spoilers (which may make the review a little vague, since the books are quite plot-driven), but if you haven’t read The Blood that Bonds, beware! **

The Blood that Bonds ended on a bittersweet note: Tw

Like many others who read The Blood that Bonds, I couldn’t wait until Blood Hunt was released. I am very happy to say that Chris made it well worth the wait. It was the perfect sequel.

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I was not happy with where Two and the rest of the characters were left at the end of The Blood that Bonds. I even devoted a Follow Friday post on my blog to my feelings on the subject. I’m not saying that I felt like it should have ended differently. It ended where it needed to

I've never written a review before, so I'll keep this short and.sweet! Like many, I've waited a long time time for Blood Hunt, and I must say that I was certainly not disappointed! I practically devoured this book in 36 hours, and, despite it being much longer than The Blood That Bonds, I was left wanting much, much more! Congratulations, Mr. Buecheler, on what is a superb 2nd book to your trilogy. I'm not sure how I can wait another year-and-a-bit until the last installment! Absolutely fantasti ...more

Oh my gosh! I couldn't put this book down and now that I have finished it I want to read it again. Full of chaos in a good way. Exciting from the beginning to the end. Left me wanting more. How will I ever be able to wait for the third book??? As bad as I want to share more about this book it will absolutely spoil it so I must keep my thoughts to myself. All I need to say is: I knew it!!!! Love prevails!!! Thank you Chris for another book well done!!
Melissa
Ugh! I want MORE...NOW! That was such a good story and I love Two's story...I NEED to learn more about Tori and The Children of The Sun...how long??? HOW LOOOONG!!!! Chris...u have done it again to me with this book! AMAZING!!!

Christopher Buecheler's The Blood That Bonds was one of the first books I downloaded on the Kindle I got for my birthday, October 2010. I was hungry for more vampire stories, after building my (mostly-defunct) career around being a "Twilight Librarian" (hey, if it got kids reading I was all for it...). Blood that Bonds had an atypical heroine in Two Majors-- she was a heroin addict whose prostitution brings her in contact with vampire Theroen. I fell in love with the scrappy Two (though her name ...more
David Teachout
I was a little wary at first, since the first book was so incredibly raw and emotional and here he is more than doubling the size of the sequel. I shouldn't have worried. Just when I think vampires have done too much, someone comes along with a new take that gives fresh energy. In this case, it's all in the characters. You cheer for them, you cry with them and throughout you root for them to win. The vampire council is fleshed out here in idiosyncratic and amusing detail and the growth of Two's ...more

I was hoping that Blood Hunt would be as good as the first book in this trilogy, The Blood That Bonds, and it was even better.
Two, the main character, has only one wish and that is to be a vampire again. But vampire politics and old laws of the four different vampire races stand in the way of her dream.
I can't tell you more without spoilers but the story takes some very unexpected turns and I was hooked from the first page.

Overall, its a good story, though not as good as the first book to me, which I loved. This one was a little too long, and though it was not boring in anyway and I didn't mind reading it, it could have been cut down a bit.

I loved all the new characters introduced, and hearing about the ones we met in book 1. The main character, Two, was a bit more self centered this go round. It was not overly done, but still annoyed me at times. I'm not sure if that was done intentionally by the author, or if w

I loved this book. I liked the part when she went before the council and she still couldn't get what she wanted. My favorite part was when Two and Naomi injected the blood into Thereoen's neck and he came back to life. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes danger, suspense, and vampires.
Rosezetta
It took me forever to actually get into the book. Once I did, and things started going, I could not put it down. Just so you know there may be spoilers in this review.

In the first book, I was loving Two, not so much in this book. I love most of the new characters introduced, and hate the story of some of our old and dear characters.

Stephen and Naoimi, I felt like they got dealt a extremely dirty hand. I almost hate Two for what she did to Naoimi, and then it almost felt like she didn't have any

This book is the second in Buechler’s II AM Trilogy, and believe me, it does not disappoint!

The book picks up shortly after The Blood That Bonds leaves off, immediately hooking you into Tori and Two’s desperation at the realization that they will never shake off the effects of being Eresh-chen. The story also follows Rhes, Sarah and Molly, who again, cannot attain the normalcy they crave, as they are once again drawn into the intrigues of the 4 vampire races. The richness of the new characters,

You know that feeling, when something bad-no not bad, life-shattering happens in a book (hello Theroen is dead) and you feel like boarding a plane to the authors doorstep, kicking his ass and demand for him to just FIX it? And then you realize it's your own very girlish need for an happy ending talking? And you want to kick your self too, for even thinking there has to be a happy end? You enter a second stage of book grief-you try to stay strong and convince yourself it's OK for the heroine to b ...more

Christopher Buecheler’s Blood Hunt (II AM Trilogy—Book #2) was thrilling and captivating…quite hard to put down. I would read late at night until I went cross-eyed, beating back the zzz’s. I was initially interested in seeing what happens to Tori; however, Two, Naomi and Stephen stole my attention (in a good way). With Two being desperate to once again be a vampire, she enlists their help in achieving this goal. With no luck from the American vampire council their mission takes the three of them ...more

Oh my freaking gawd....I am still reeling from this book. Once again, a most excellent plot line, and characters that are awesomely thought out! He has kept up the twists and turns, tossing hope into the mix. Yes, there is love, but nothing graphic, which considering all the crap out there, is a wonderful thing. I love the different types of vampire, the different abilities that they have and yeah, the politics! Amazing job Mr. Buecheler! Now onto the next

Warning: Don't read this story unless you have read "The Blood That Bonds" first(last time I checked it was still free for Kindle), or you will be completely lost and miss out on the background stories of most of the characters.

I am very impressed with the author's writing. Not only does he dare to tell a story in a woman's POV, but he does it very well. I applaud him for imagining these amazing characters and putting it all down on paper in such a wonderful way, that I actually care about what

Wow good book. You first hear about Tory and her story since two left her with her parents, of which she thinks is the best choice. Tory is lost and starting to hate two to leaving her there but when something happens to her parents things change and then her story stops.
That's when two's story begins, again her friends Rhes and Sarah worry about her but this tie they are dragged into to it.
Two how ever is trying to get back to where she thinks she Belongs, that's how she meets her two new frie

I was completely taken off guard when I read Blood that Bonds and did not expect how very much I enjoyed it, no LOVED it...so like so many I could not wait to read the second installment. Honest truth, I was not "as" blown away with it as I was the first book. I found that I enjoyed the first book better. That being said, I really really liked this one too. What I loved best about it was that you really got to know the other characters we were introduced to in book one so much more. It gave the ...more

Still not over my vampire lit fixation - totally loved this. I quite like it when the sequel outshines the first book - ok this one isn't free but it is very low priced and it shouldn't be - it is a stonkingly good read. There is a plot which twists and turns, the characters develop and the list of them expands nicely. It weaves 3 plot lines which I think will collide in book 3 (hopefully) and the vampire side isn't cliched - well maybe a little but then I think it has to be a bit in this genre ...more

i'm convinced now that the ingredient that makes a great book into one of the best books you've ever read, is the characters. This book has that ingredient in spades. i am completely addicted to the lives of the characters in this series. they are real, raw, i can picture them and imagine hanging out with them. of course the story line is great and engrossing and has me reading late into the night to hear what happens next, but a big part of that is that i can't get enough of Two and the people ...more

It took me longer to finish this book but not because of any fault of the novel, just that I got sidetracked by other projects... I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment of Two Ashley Majors story... For a really cheap price on Kindle I was thrilled at every turn of my ebook pages... The plot twists are never ending and I loved that it wasn't obvious that she was going to get her wish to be returned to the vampire state she so longed for... To say Thereon's return came as a complete surpris ...more

This book was okay I felt like it was all over the place. I completely understand why because he has to set a lot of stuff up by why start the book with Tori's story so indepth and then completely drop it. I would preferred he make a spin off book of completely Tori that way I could have focused all my attention on Two's story line. All I can think about after this book is why did Naomi have to get suck a f'ed deal, completely just feel bad for her and then what happened to Stephen really got m

This book was awesome. Totally epic. It was beautifully written, and carefully crafted to demand the readers whole attention. I got lost in the words, and the emotions the story inspired. It was a roller coaster for me. I cried, I laughed, I wanted to punch something or someone, and I cried some more.
I got teary eyed at every mention of Theroen.

I loved The Blood That Bonds, and have to say, I loved Blood Hunt more. It was good to find out more of the history of the vampires, and to meet new cha

The writing is exceptional and the plot was engaging - both are to a 5 star quality.
However I've removed a star because I grew to dislike Two as she is very selfish in this book and other people are continuously getting hurt because of her. It distracted me to the point where I didn't want to 'leave' the other characters to focus on her.

But, niggles aside, I can't wait for the final book in the trilogy - I particularly want to see Naomi and Sasha find some happiness, and find Rhes, Sarah, Molly

Even better than the first book in the series!!

WOW! Excellently written book, which definately leaves you wanting more. I really loved some twists, hated a few, and expected others. I'm interested to see who makes it through the next book. So sad when we lost a certain warrior in this book but I was totally floored when another was resurrected!

I'm also interested in learning more about the human cult of vampire killers (The Children of the Sun). I hope they'll be able to salvage poor Tori! Eagerly awaiting the third book in this trilogy :)
Amber
After reading the first book, I was left feeling frustrated, I had become so involved in Two that the way it ended was very upsetting. I was needing a second book, and I got it! The Blood Hunt was a much longer book, but it had so much detail in different characters and in the vampire world itself. And told from different perspectives. This author definitley can keep you coming back for more! The twist at the end was not exactly expected but needed to happen! I can not wait for the next book!
Dixon
There seemed to be too many earnest conversations and explanations of the various types of vampires and their politics, until about one-third of the way through. When the story engine was finally fired up, then it was an exciting read. Some wild lesbian sex scenes may offend a few readers, but I'm guessing not many nuns will buy this volume.

Loved the first book in the series, and looking forward to #3. It's always tough to make the middle volume of a trilogy feel fresh & exciting.
Elizabeth
Just finished reading THE BLOOD THAT BONDS by Christopher Buecheler which is a FREE e-book and it was GREAT. Then went and downloaded the second book BLOOD HUNT which was only 2.99 for almost 1400 pages (woot woot). Now I must wait for the last book THE CHILDREN OF THE SUN to come out (AWWW MAN). I am hooked on the II AM TRILOGY and cannot wait till my next fix.
Support this independently published author by downloading his free e-book (B&N, etc), and if you like get the second book.
