Love it! There's not a story from Ms Lutz that I haven't loved...
Sonnet is an intriguing kick ass character yes but I think she's so much more. I enjoyed everything about this book characters, setting and storyline.
Well done Ms Lutz on a great read that will be added to my favourite and reread lists!
This book has left me wanting more, the author has an amazing ability to drag you into her world and keep you there!
If your a fan of Paranormal/Fantasy then this is a must read.

This review will be a short one!

Okay so this Novella was interesting.
I kept putting this book off but then the amount of 5 star reviews made me reconsider. So i caved in and read it.

Overall, its okay. Nothing amazingly new, to be honest it was pretty generic and i had the 'I've-read-this-before' feeling.
Also, man, this book moved fast!
Honestly, too fast.

The romance went blindingly quick and while the Vamp was attractive and sweet, it just made me sigh in dismay becaus

This story was SO good. It definitely kept me guessing because not everyone is as they seem. Sonnet is a kick ass character which I love. So often the women in stories are "Oh, save me". Bane, I want to take home and have one of my very own. He is everything wrapped up in a sexy vampire package. I really hope that the author re-visits this world because there are so many questions that I have and I can see this being a FANTASTIC series. Every book the author writes, I have really enjoyed.

I really liked the character of Sonnet Vale….. She is a Hunter and she has the ability to sense paranormal creatures. The characters were quite interesting….you had vanpires, werewolves and demons of all shapes and sizes!!! Sonnet meets Bane, a centuries old Vampire and the sparks begin to fly between them!!! There are a few twists, turns and surprises throughout the book…it made it so interesting, I could not put it down!!! Congr

Wish I hadn't spent $ on it. I'm not sure why the other readers think is so great: it's really not very good good or even original. It's pretty much a bad Buffy clone.

The problem is that unlike Buffy whose powerful and has a team of trustworthy friends: Sonnet's a naive bimbo who sucks at defending herself, sucks at hunting paranormals, is dangerously blind about the supernatural world around her and has the sense of self preservation of a lemming.

Spoilers ahead

This is a story about Sonnet Vale, a paranormal hunter who tracks all supernatural beings. She is the only tracker at the Fang Squad, Inc. Sonnet tracks and her partner, Emely Jordan, does the killing. Seems Sonnet has a soft side and doesn't like to do the killing. However, she will if she has to. They have been sent to kill a vampire which they do. Her partner takes off on her bike.

Loved it!!! I read it in one sitting I couldn't put it down, Ms Lutz writes paranormal like no other. The story is very well written, I enjoyed it right from page one. Sonnet Vale is kickass as a vampire hunter and heroine of the story and Bane well he's one HAWT vampire. And did I mention that their chemistry is nuclear wow I so wanted them to hook up and when they did WOW fireworks!!

Gena D Lutz, you are amazing! I love this genre and didn't think there was much more that could be done but I was wrong. Sonnet is an intriguing character. I cannot wait to see what else happens with her. What a fantastic read!

This is one of the few books I wish to have read in first person instead of third person. Seriously, Sonnet is a kick a** character that could have pulled the first person telling very well.

I wish to read more of Sonnet and Bane in the near future. *crosses fingers*

This is Sonnet's story. Sonnet is a human that hunts Vampires. While out with her partner staking one of the undead, she meets another Vampire. This one seems different though, he has intrigued her. While she is distracted by him, her partner makes a mistake and ends up shooting the one they were killing. Having to flee quickly, she doesn't notice that this new vampire, Bane, placed something in her trunk.

This book is amazing!. the story line is so entertaining. The Characters are amazing!. Sonnet is a born Vampire hunter only he does like killing them she just tracks them down for assassins to kill them. After Sonnet gets done with a job A sexy Vampire shows up he is different from the ones she hunts.Sonnet has no real love for Vampires as she was attacked by one once.

After reading the summary and reviews for "Sonnet Vale" I immediately knew I had to read this book. What I wasn't prepared for was the brevity of the read. It's only 101 pages and reads more like a prequel-novella that a full fledged novel.

Sonnet Vale grew up in an orphanage where she was attacked by a vampire. When she entered foster care her parents treated her as though she was flawed also as a disappointment. Now she has come to grips with her unique ability to sense vampires and

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.Thank you!
Wow, that was something else. I have read many stories with vampires before but this one is somehow different.. I like that in this book, the girl is the strong one, the one who fights not the sexy vampire.
The book has a fast paced and I like it. It doesn't bother with long descriptions that I consider unnecessary. It's easy to read I finished it in two hours an I really enjoy it.

Sonnet is no fading wallflower, she's actually a kickass vampire hunter! She doesn't do any of the killing ,no that is the job of her partner,  Emily. Don't get me wrong I think she would kill if the need arises.
Sonnet was attacked as a child by a vampire and bears the scars to prove it as a constant reminder but she wears her scars with a fearless pride if you like.
It's while hunting that she meets a vampire that may just be her undoing....

This one was a fast paced dive into a different world. One where some vampires plague humanity and a select group seeks justice for their victims. Sonnet is different. She possesses innate abilities that help her track vampires but she lacks the killer instinct to get the job done. She's content to leave the bloody stuff to her partner Emely. Their latest hunt brings Sonnet face to face to Bane, a man that will ultimately alter how she sees vampires, the rest of the supernatural world and even h ...more

Sonnet Vale, by Gena D. Lutz is a very fast paced paranormal romance about the title character Sonnet Vale who is a 'hunter' of vampires that commit crimes against humans. There are some really interesting aspects to the setting that she creates including a place called Phantom City that I can't describe without adding in some spoilers. The heroine's drive to seek out justice for the victims of violent crimes stems from her own dark past. There is also quite a bit of mystery surrounding her pare ...more

Intrigued by Sonnet's empathy, Bane, a vampire, is completely fascinated by her. When Sonnet needs his help, Bane claims her as his to introduce her to a paranormal world she never knew existed. Sonnet fighting her attraction to Bane is reeling in confusion at this world where nothing is as it seems, even herself. With an good plot and strong, intriguing characte

Love finding new authors! I was given a copy before the release of Romancing the Paranormal to give my honest review. This book will be included in the anthology along with many other great stories. As my first time reading a Lutz book I was incredibly impressed and left wanting more. Vampires, demons, werewolves and hunters all make for a delicious story and series introduction. Sonnet is brave, smart, sexy and quick witted. Paired with Bane our sexy vampire this series will be full of adventur ...more

Another great story by the very talented Gena Lutz, Sonnet Vale is an action packed read that leaves you begging for more. From the streets of Alabama to the underground world of the paranormal, this fast paced tale is one I would definitely recommend. With a past that could leave you in tears, Sonnet is a woman to be reckoned with…but even she may not know her true strength. Throw in a determined vamp and the possibilities are endless! Two thumbs way up for Gena Lutz’s Sonnet Vale!
