Once again the author is bringing me an entirely new scenario on which to chew. In 'Hunter and Hunted', Hunter is a young man who was adopted when he was thirteen. He'd spent his whole life in foster care or group homes and he was so happy to finally have a family. Of course, at the time, he didn't know he was being adopted into the Knights, and raised with all of their vitriol and hatred against shifters. Now he's twenty and is out on his own, assigned with killing his first shifter. Instead, h ...more

I have been following this series since the very beginning (starting with Psychic Moon). I think the development of The Agency vs. The Knights are getting better and better.

+ A black character (yes, variety from usual white characters is nice)
+ Hunter is an "enemy"; he is adopted by a knight family. Again, variety.
+ Deer shifter :)
+ The personal conflict that Hunter experiences -- after 7 years of indoctrination that all shifters are monsters -- is good

The title might seem unimaginative. But hey this series kept surprising me - in a good way! After blind shifter of the previous book, we finally got a Knight as main character - and a black man too. And the shifter taking the front stage this time was a deer shifter. What a refreshing change!

Hunter was a confused Knight, questioning things the organization doctrined him to believe, ever since he was adopted by a high ranking member there. On Hunter's rite passage, Glenn - a deer shifter - stumbl

A really great story and good addition to the series. I liked the chemistry between the two MCs Hunter and Glenn as well. Definitely on to the next one:)

Another awesone one in this series. They just keep getting better and better.

Era da tempo che non leggevo un romanzo con protagonisti mutaforma: un mutaforma cervide, poi, non mi era mai capitato! Devo dire che comunque mi ha piacevolmente sorpreso: anche se alcune situazioni mi hanno lasciata un pochino perplessa, la storia è stata appassionante ed emozionante.
A non avermi del tutto convinta è stato sopratutto l'"instalove" che si sviluppa tra Hunter e Glenn, anche se, in parte, riesco comunque a comprenderlo poichè si tratta di u

Perhaps because I'm reading the whole series at once and I haven't wait for the next sequel to be released, I have been really enjoy this series.
Interracial couple makes it a little bit different, and extra points are giving for the African American character, one of my favourites.
Another wonderful sequel.

Ami's review perfectly summed up my feelings about the book. Can't wait to read the next installment in this series.
3.5* Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

Finally we are starting to get somewhere in regards to the knights! In the previous book, there was a little bit of information gleaned, kind of a teaser, really, that just whet my appetite for more so when I found out that this book would actually feature a knight I was completely pumped and ready to learn more.

Abandoned at the age of three, Hunter is an orphan that at the ripe age of thirteen is becoming disillusioned with the way things work. When he

Whoa. Okay. It’s not often that within a few books I go from one to four stars in a single series, but I figure this book deserves that much, simply based on my enjoyment of it.

This story is actually sweet. It made me happy. And I like how this shifter’s family differs from the previous book’s shifter’s family.

There’s significantly less telling in favour of showing now. Sure, I still see some stylistic issues and awkwardnesses, but overall that has improved vastly as well.

Finalmente, arrivata al quarto libro, questa serie inizia a farsi più definita con "Cacciatore e preda", che colma alcuni dei troppi vuoti lasciati dai romanzi precedenti e dipinge a tratti più nitidi il mondo in cui si muovono i mutaforma e i loro nemici, i Cavalieri.
I protagonisti di questo quarto capitolo sono proprio due membri degli schieramenti contrapposti, un mutaforma cervide, Glenn, e un membro dei Cavalieri, il giovane Hunter: il primo vive un’esistenza serena insieme alla numerosa fa

Originally reviewed for The Book Vixen

In a Nutshell: Uncomplicated MM shifter romance with better world building than romance but still a decent read.

The Set Up: Hunter was orphaned at three and adopted by the Knights, an organization with a mission to destroy shifters. Hunter feels loyalty to the Knights so when his rite of passage time comes to kill a shifter, he goes hunting. But Hunter can’t shoot the deer, who he knows is a shifter, and when the deer shifts human, Hunter is attracted to the
Hunter viene presentato come un ragazzino orfano affamato d’amore che, quando viene adottato da una seguace dei Cavalieri, nemici persecutori dei mutaforma, è felice e ne adotta pensieri e obbiettivi anche se piano piano i dubbi si fanno strada in lui soprattutto quando assiste all’uccisione e alle torture subite dai mutaforma da loro catturati. Arriva per lui il momento della prova finale per entrare stabilmente nel gruppo dei Cavalieri e la prova è uccidere entro un mese un mutaforma, nel suo ...more

"Il mio cuore è tuo," diceva l’ultima riga." Loro non potranno mai portartelo via. E io ricorderò sempre la verità. Il tuo compagno, Hunter."

Questa serie non mi delude mai e migliora sempre di più (tra l'altro sbirciando le trame dei futuri libri non solo mi ispirano praticamente tutte ma manca pochissimo alla storia dell'agente Poe....e io non vedo l'ora!! *ç*). Se nel precedente della serie abbiamo avuto una coppia composta da mutaforma qui l'accoppiata è più azzardata: abbiamo un cervo, Glenn

This is an interesting series. I read it on vacation and it worked out well - I could put it down when there was something to go do but easily pick it back up and get engrossed back into the stories. Each one was unique, interesting and full of sexy characters.

The next time I read the series, I will read it in chronological order of the stories, not in the order they were written. You can do either, but the books from earlier times tell the deeper underlining story of the scrolls, which is what

Okay, now we are starting to get somewhere. About 1/2 way through Hunter and Hunted, I almost DNFed. I almost set it aside and declared myself done with the series. However, I stuck it out. The series is finally starting to gel for me. The arc about the Agency and The Knights is starting to get some meat on it. It is all starting to get intriguing instead of being random ideas.

I liked that this expanded on the overall 'verse of the shifters versus the knights, but I wasn't too keen about the relationship between Hunter and Glenn...just didn't feel the connection and spark between the two of them through the story. It was a bit too easy for them. However, I liked the ending and I look forward to future books that will hopefully continue to advance the overall plot.
