“Don’t. You don’t pull away from me. You give me everything you have. I’m safe, Kelsey. I’m the one you can take it all out on. I want every emotion you have. Baby, I take the angry ones. Give me the soft ones, too.”

Outcast by Lexi Blake is one paranormal masterpiece you don’t want to miss! This gem is book four in Lexi’s AMAZING Hunter series and it can’t be read as a standalone. So, if you want to experience this sexy, emotional, and magical journey, start the series today!

I absolutely love the Thieves/Hunters world, and these are some of my very favorite urban fantasy books. Unfortunately I made the mistake of starting this book late at night, so I was up until 2am finishing it. Now my brain is too tired to write a coherent review!

Lexi did a good job at giving us a recap of who are characters are, and what happened in the previous book. I love when authors do that, as my memory isn't what it used to be, and I don't always have time to go back and do a series re-r

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This might be Lexi Blake’s best writing yet. Kelsey has come into her own as a hunter and she kicks ass in her role as the king’s assassin. I love the way the simpler story of Kelsey’s hunt for a feral werewolf intertwines with the more complicated storylines that weave through the series.

I have to admit that I didn’t fully engage with the first part of this book. Kelsey’s attempts to keep both Trent and Grayson happy almost h

Love love loved it!!!

Lexi is the master at twists aNd turns and the 'Thieves' universe is no different. I was on the edge of me seat the whole read. I LOVE Trent, and I seriously hope in years to come we get Little Lee's story. So much there.
I cannot wait for the next book !!!

I received a free copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads

Outcast is the 4th installment in the Hunter series and most definitely cannot be read as a standalone, as all threads tie together. As for it being the 9th installment in the Thieves series, I can attest to how reading the Thieves series prior to the Hunter series is not a prerequisite. No doubt the emotional payoff is better, but I was never confused due to not reading it first. However, I will eventually go back and read

Kelsey has never had it easy. Growing up as the child her father didn't like, she learned early to stay out of his way. Never knowing the reasons why, Kelsey not only wanted her father's approval, but his love as well. Trying to prove that she was worthy of his love, she found herself in a situation she didn't anticipate, couldn't control and left her devastated when she learned who and what her father truly was: a murderer

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Whew! This book is a whirlwind of emotion, turmoil, sadness and love. If you haven't read the previous books, you might find yourself a little confused, but they aren't necessarily needed. However, I would strongly suggest reading them in order, as they will make the most sense.

Trent and Gray and still at odds. Kelsey is caught in the middle. I love the dynamic between Kelsey and her

Kelsey has joined the ranks of my favorite fantasy leading ladies now! She is part wolf and has a demon arm, can't get much cooler than that. She is in charge a lot of the time, but she also knows when to step back and ask for help. She is a bit stubborn, but she allows others to help her when she needs it. Kelsey was such an all-around likable character! But don't think that she is weak, because she isn't. When her demon or wolf side comes out to play, nothing will get in between her and what s ...more

Oh My Gosh I cant Wait for the next Theives!!

Loved, loved this book, well I love all the Theives books. Lexi has not disappointed me this time either. I’ll only say loved the ending ... every. damn. Word of it. If I could have taken a day off of work I would have so I could have read straight through. Every time I read a Thieves story I feel like these characters are just as real as any human being story. Kelsey is as dear to my heart as Zoey is and every man, creature, demon, wolf and vampire i
Kelsey's love life has never been more complicated, Gray still can't forgive Trent for his brother's death while Trent has been exiled as punishment for what happened making him a target for anyone who wants to hurt her. She's doing her best to hold things together but she needs both of the men in her life and is desperate to find a way to bring Trent home and make peace between him and Gray. Gray's father Lord Sloane has offered her a way to make that happen but when demons are involved the onl ...more

4 stars. This book is a great addition to the Hunter series. Outcast contines Kelsey's story and her menage relationship with Trent, a werewolf, and Gray, a half-demon. I can't go too much into the story without spoiling anything, but I will say that in this book, Kelsey continues to struggle to get her relationship on track and happy, while juggling her duties as the Nex Apparatus.

I love Kelsey, Trent and Gray together. They have all been through so much and they deserve to be happy. I do wish

This is the first book that I have read in this series and while, there is some backstory missing, it did not stop me at all from diving right in and falling for this book. I am now on a mission to go back and read the rest of the series. I absolutely loved the depth of these characters and the struggles that they face just to get through life. Add in the outside forces that are determined to force these three to make hard decisions.

Kelsey is desperately trying to get her two men to get along an

Outcast is book #4 in the Hunter Series. Lexi Blake you made me tearing up with your acknowledgements. I am so sorry that you lost your mom. I am glad you found your happy place with writing this series and book.

Kelsey, Gray & Trent start therapy. Trent has been exiled as punishment for killing Gray’s demon brother Nemcox. Gray is having a hard time with Trent since his brother was killed.

Now Kelsey wants a baby and I love that Casey changed all for the love of a woman. New characters are i

How long will I have to wait?!

Ok!! so it was excellent as is expected the content the story the suspense the action. All great as we have come to know and expect from LB. I didn't think they would fall in o thought she'd fall out. SOlo i can't review this books without giving stuff away I just can't and I don't want to be like that.
The only thing I would be inclined to take a star off for was the fact that Ms. Blake did not include when Stealing Summer would be coming out!!!! I don't know if I

This book was everything I could have wished for and so much more and that ending OMG that ending, I am counting down the days till I can get my hands on book 5. The romance was swoon-worthy and hot , the plot will keep your eyes glued to the page and the world will fascinate you. If your wondering if you should pick up Outcast the answer is YES as ...more

Soooooo good!!!!

As much as I hate waiting, I love that Lexi doesn't rush the storylines in her books. The build up is perfectly timed and balanced. I have read and re-read all of her books and the Thieves and Hunter series are my favorites......even when we poor readers are left dangling from a cliff.😈. I can't find the words to explain just how highly I recommend Lexi Blake's books!

Lexi is one of my must read authors but my absolute favorite is the Thieves Series. Outcast was fantastic! The character development was wonderful and she keeps you guessing until the end. I cannot wait for the next installment.
