Moira Dunne is the seventh daughter of the seventh daughter which gives her the potential to be a very powerful witch. Powerful enough to eventually take a place on the witches’ Counsel of Nine. But when she is marked as a mate by vampire Connlan Kayrs after a night of passion, her family requested that she have the century needed to properly train her in the arts of magic.
Even though the Realm is already fighting the Kurjans (evil vampires) and the demons and need all the allies they can get, the century is up and Conn has come to claim his mate, even if taking her out of Ireland starts a war with the witches.
Moira is now a member of the counsel’s secret service, and she does not intend to leave Ireland right now. Someone has been kidnapping member’s of the Nine and she needs to find them. She also fears her uncontrollable attraction for Conn, since he didn’t seem to have any problem leaving her alone for a century.
Their future has an even larger problem--someone is working hard to influence the Counsel to leave the Realm and team up with the demons. If the counsel agrees to leave the Realm, Moira will be torn between duty to her people and her loyalty to Conn.
This is another exciting addition to the Dark Protectors series, and brings in the fun element of witches to our current group of supernaturals.
I love the way that Rebecca brings in the idea of science to explain magic through quantum physics, and manipulating matter on a subatomic level. Makes you think “Hmmm…ok, maybe that could work.”
She has already used science to explain the differences between human and vampires on a chromosomal level. This is major part of continuing plot line of the dangerous Virus-27 which the evil Kurjans have invented in order to destroy the chromosomes which seals the mating bond between the vampires and their “gifted” females. The virus was created so that the Kurjans can destroy the bond and take the gifted females for their own mates.
She also continues to tease us as we try to find a cure for those already infected with the virus, including shifter Katie who cannot shift since being infected, and who is becoming increasing agitated over her predicament. This is leading us up to the next book which features Katie and Jordon.
We also meet some interesting new characters, including Moira’s sister, Brenna. I am hoping we will see more of her in future books.
Anyone who hasn’t tried the Dark Protectors series, you will have time to catch up with the series before Hunted is released in April.
