La chasseresse (Night World #7)
Jez Redfern is unique. She's a vampire hunter... who's half vampire. Raised in the Redfern family, the girl with fiery hair and silvery-blue eyes was the undisputed leader of a gang of vampire raiders. Then came the discovery that shattered her life-- her mother was a human. Now, Jez hunts her former friends, protecting humans from the Night World.
But when Cir...more
This book is the story of Jez, a half-vampire half-human creature, who when learns about her mixed origins decides to leave from her gang because she knows that they will kill her if they find out what she is. But as the end of the World comes closer, old prophe ...more
So she was sent to invetigate, and steal the Wild Power form her old friends. She found out about her link to Morgead, and feared it, I don't really know which is it I like the msot, but the story wasn't boring, and Claire was not so annoying, as I thought she would be.
The end was the right one, and ...more
Still a favorite. Huntress was one of my top 3 favorite novels in the Night World series, if not my number 1 favorite and at this point it still is. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end and there was only a few minor issues that don't effect my rating at all.
The story starts with Jezebel (Jez) Redfern a vampire and her gang toying with some human gang members. It was a fun scene, even though I knew that the humans would probably be dead soon. It's during this part that Jez realize ...more
I actually own the volume with 7, 8, and 9 all in one (as well as the first two volumes with 1-6) and have read them avidly. But I thought it would be easier to review a single story from the volume like this because then you know which one I'm talking about ;)
I'm definitely a huuuuuge fan of Ms. Smith. No one writes romance, action, and forbidden perfect love quite like her! I reread Huntress the other ...more

i love jez. her name is like no other. she is a strong person and can be very fiery. she made me enjoy the book. her selflessness is very powerful yet real. her issues are serious yet mostly comical.
morgead is my favorite nightworld guy. i love him and i love how jez distabilizes him. its very cute. his love fo ...more
Pace? Quick with never a dull moment. Many twists and turns kept me absorbed and actually excited to keep reading. (believe me, that's hard to come by). I didn't feel boggled down by details; there's enough to satisfy the need for a backdrop and keep the story goin.
The main characters, Jez and Morgead were fiery, likable, and well rounded characters. I genuinely wanted them to be together and never found myself rolling my eyes at their dialog or declarations of love ...more
In "Huntress," Smith develops a larger story line for her Night World series. The new concept deals with the coming millennium and a possible apocalypse that will wipe out humanity and return the world to an age where the Night World rules, rather than exists on the fringes. Humanity will only be saved if four legendary Wild Powers are found and kept safe by Circle Daybreak. But the Night World is searching for these powers as well...
Enter Jez Redfern. Onc ...more
A présent, on retrouve une continuité dans les tomes, sachant que les précédents intervenants sont de plus en plus impliqués, et que sont utilisées des références aux histoires ainsi qu’aux origines expliquées au fur et à mesure (un peu comme dans le précédent tome).
On pourrait d’ailleurs se demander ...more
Aside from amazing character names, I enjoyed Huntress for its other attributes as well. I liked how they played up the “human discrimination” ang ...more
Human-hating vampire Jez Redfern is horrified when she learns she is a human/vampire crossbreed- an abomination in the eyes of both species. She has to come to terms with what she is, and find a way to live on the fine line between two warring species, not really belonging to either. ...more
Achei imensa piada à relação amor/ódio entre Jez e Morgead.
De leitura rápida, acho que esse terá sido o livro que até agora gostei mais. Talvez por fazer-se menção a algo tão hediondo e aterrador como o Fim do Mundo, e a introdução de um novo Poder, capaz de salvar o Mundodos humanos tal como o conhecemos.
Smith, nesse livro, encaixa muito bem a relação Mundo da Noite e os humanos, criando uma personagem que sendo meio vampira ...more
This, to me, was a little lackluster. It felt like an abridged version of a story. It had some clever ideas but none of the storylines felt fully developed.
Three stars because I don't regret reading it, but I'm not certain I'll read the sequels or if I would recommend it to others.
