I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

The Bad
Hunting was a good book, no kidding. But there's something that's bugging me; I can't exactly pinpoint the exact thing. I didn't really find anything I didn't like about the book- it was just there's something about it that seemed... I don't really know how to place this- old fashioned? Restrained? But this was just a really tiny issue for me.

If it’s not obvious after reading a few of my reviews, I’m picky. I’m not that person who gives something five stars just because I liked reading it. On my blog, I even made a dual rating system to reflect the fact that, when I read a book, I’m comparing it to other books in the same genre that do similar things (my five star rating) and I’m also, consciously or not, comparing it to every other book I’ve ever read (my ten

I like it when an author spins a tried and true plot line in a new way. In the world of paranormal writing vampires are either completely hidden from society at large or completely out in the open and living amongst the humans. In the case of S.M. Hineline’s Hunting, not only are the vampires out of the dark, so to speak, but they are their own sovereign nation within the borders of the United States. Told you, new twist.

I also fancy a book that doesn’t completely conform to the first-in-a serie

This is a decent story and a non-derivative world which I can greatly appreciate.

The thing that is wrong with the story is very simple, but overwhelming and led to me almost not finishing the book. What is it? Well, one of my college English profs used to say: "Don't tell... Show!" This story largely is told by the narrator who witters on endlessly about history and ongoing events. It would much more easily hold people's interest and make the story more impactful, if that were not the case.

This book took me a lot longer to read than I care to admit, but I got through it and it was interesting. I liked how the vampire world was different than any other I've read about. Jade is a badass character and not heartless like the other badass characters that I read about. The only thing I felt it lacked was emotion. I was waiting for there to be opinions about people, not facts. If that makes sense? It just might not be my style of writing but it was still a nice read.

Interesting storyline and the differences in the vampire mythology (from other popular books) were welcomed. Some parts of the history of vampires got a little long winded and the ending was a little abrupt. Overall, a good (but not great) book.
Kelsey Ketch
Overall, Hunting was an intriguing story with a captivating plotline. I liked the adventure, the challenges, and the characters. However, there were a few things I felt detracted from the story. First, I felt the story was kind of bare bones with most of the conversation taking place in the body text rather than in actual dialogue. I think if the novel focused more on dialogue, it would have brought more interaction between the characters to life and I would have felt less like a third party wat ...more

Jade is a single 28 year old with a good family and good friends, but life is far from perfect when people randomly try to mentally contact you, inducing intense physical pain, all while working with vampires. When her best vampire friend asks her to join in the hunt for something that will save the vampires for another 500 years, she can't refuse. But at what price will this dangerous and uncertain mission bring?
This book, like every book, had its goods and not-as-goods. The spin on vampires wa

I was intrigued by the blurb, but in my opinion the book failed to deliver. I read a lot of YA books, but this must have been written for a much younger audience than I'm used to. It seemed like the characters were older but the dialog just seemed pretty juvenile. Also, this book was pretty heavy on description and not enough action. Not enough interest for me to continue on to the next book. I'm not knocking the author, this was just my opinion.

Got it free for kindle. Amazing story and one of the best vampire books. This is how they are supposed to be.
