Book 7 in the V Games series, focuses on Hunters Mercy Helsing and Colt, this book starts from where the last ended. Mercy and Colt have been apprehended by the Watchers and taken to Dødstårn, a prison for dangerous and wayward immortals. They are both thrust into the brutality and viciousness of Dødstårn's rules, and lucky Mercy, gains both allies/friends and enemies.

Mercy has been one character that has developed well throughout the series, and this remains true in this book, sh

Caroline has done it yet again!! With every chapter and book and new character of this world she writes, she somehow manages to repeatedly create novels filled with heart-stopping action, twists and surprises the readers never see coming, gorgeous and swoony male leads, and just enough of a cliffy to leave you anxious and b

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Caroline Peckham!

Hunter Trials
is the seventh book in The Vampire Games series and is the third season in this series. The first season is the V Games season, the second one is the Wolf Games season and the third one is the Hunter Trials season.

Hunter Trials is yet another amazing book written by Caroline Peckham. I know that I start every review by saying that, but it’s just the truth. Caroline has
I love Caroline's writing. I cannot get enough of this world and these characters. These covers are also all so gorgeous and really do encompass what is going on throughout each novel.

This novel picks up right where the last one left off -- with Colt and Mercy being taken. I love that Caroline is able to create these seasons and these characters and I never know where she is going to take the story.

Mercy is one of my favourite characters, which if you have read V-Games; you know that she did no

Yet another awesome book... I love all of Caroline’s books and this one didn’t disappoint! If you follow the Vgames you will love the latest instalment! I started off hating Mercy Helsing but she has really grown on me after reading this book... and looks like we have a few new hotties thrown in for good measure too!! This book was action packed from start to finish and I literally couldn’t put the book down!!

I'm really enjoying how Peckham has managed to maintain the world of the V Games and yet twist it with each season. This third season shines the light on Mercy, a Hunter. In the first season we viewed this complex girl as a simple villain as she willingly turned a blind eye to the horrors her family hosted via the V Games, but by season two she really begins developing into something...else. And now here we are, the tables have turned and we get to finally see just what Merc

I loved everything about this book. If you haven't read the first 6 books in this universe, I highly recommend reading them first so you really get to know the characters (start with VGames). I love how the characters change and grow. I started out really not liking Mercy from many books ago but she's grown on me so much. This book has tons of twists and turns, nonstop action, and of course a cliff hanger to keep you hanging on for the next book. I usually get bored with longer series but this o ...more

V Games: Season 3: Hunter Trials is finally here and WOW, WOW, WOW!

Honestly, every book in The V Games is so well written, action packed and fast paced! I'm just blown away by this series; It just keeps getting better.

Hunter Trials is the beginning of Season 3, it shines the light on Mercy Van Helsing, a hunter.  

Mercy has grown sooo much as a character since she was first introduced in the first season, and she's growing on me. She's gro

I absolutely loved this book!! Caroline knows just how to keep you on the edge of your seat. So many twists and turns to keep you wondering, you just have to keep reading to see where she is taking you.. You won't regret reading this book. I love every single one of her books... Beware she does love cliffhangers!!! Lol

So I’ve taken a few days to gather my thoughts so I could write this review and all I can honestly say is WHAT!

So first of all if you haven’t read the books previous to this one I highly suggest it so you know more of what’s going on and more about the characters. I can honestly say I love how Caroline has these characters grow. I started off absolutely hating Mercy but she is definitely growing on me. I don’t like this love triangle she’s in because someone is going to get hurt and out of all

6 All-Consuming Stars!

This is by far the best book the series has had yet, and all of the others were amazing. I could not put this one down. The book starts off action-packed, drawing you in and keeping you there. Mercy and Colt are thrust into the unknown where they have to face their own trials to survive. Things are done differently in Dødstårn and there are a new set of rules and clan leaders. I enjoyed getting to know the new characters, Hawke and Kate in particular. This new world we are

WOW all i can say is WOW. I am hooked on Caroline's books.
And this one did not dissapoint. Mercy van Helsing is sent to "prison" with Colt and has to go through
her own set of trials to stay in her clan. Her clan leader is the totally yummy Hawke who
Tries to help her win while trying to win her affections too. Throw is a bit of Romance,Stalking, Murder and Exile. Well i cannot wait for the 2nd installement. The story line in all these books just run perfectly back to back and once you start read

LOVE. If you had told me after book one of the V Games that I would one day root for Mercy Helsing, I never would have believed you. But now I freaking love that girl. I want her to succeed. I empathize with her. Hell, I even relate to her at times. She was amazing in this book. And all the new characters were perfect too. I am so excited to see where this goes, and as much as I love both Hawke and Colt, (view spoiler). The next book is going to ...more

I was given this book for my honest review, I am an ARC reader.
What can I say, gripping from page one to the very end of the book.
Could not put this down, twists turns exciting, full of action, you become part of the book.
You are on the edge of your seat, hoping with every breath what will happen.
Two great men who to choose not spoiling it must be read by yourselves.
A cliff hanger cannot wait to see what happens next.
Was so exciting hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Note: I received this book from the author and I voluntarily give this review, it is my honest opinion.

Hunter Trials is the seventh book in the V Games series and the first in a trilogy that has the story told from Mercy Helsings' pov. The last we seen Mercy, she was taken by the Watchers, who are a sort of supernatural police, to be sentenced for her crimes against her (horrible) family. Mercy and Colt are sentenced to Dødstårn, which is a prison for supernaturals.

This book was really good, I l

Caroline Peckham’s The Hunter Trials is an exciting beginning to Mercy’s story. The thing I love the most about Caroline’s books is the fact that she can take a character you thing is solidly a bad person and make you fall in love with them. Mercy started out as a character who I had no mercy for, pun intended. I felt she was selfish and spoiled. Fast forward to The Hunter Trials and we are shown a brand new Mercy. She stands on her own two feet and survives despite the fact everyone expects her ...more

Great start to Season 3! Dodstarn is crazy and the competition between the clans brings so many twists and turns. Mercy and Colt sent there as punishment for turning against their fellow hunters. Leaders Hawke, Bain, and Arabella bring so many new and interesting twists.

Oh, how I loved this book! Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. The story follows Mercy and Colt, where The V Games #6 left off. Everything is new and place, new issues, and new characters. I really enjoyed the pace and action of this story. The setting and people are really interesting. I also found my new book boyfriend, and his name is Hawke (sorry Jameson).

I can't express what a brilliant author Caroline Peckham is how amazing her story lines have me craving more.

This book gave me a new insight into Mercy and how much she has changed since the first book (The V Games). I had hoped that she would come around and be more than she was first portrayed and so far I am not disappointed.

I can't wait for the next book. I want to see how Hawke and Colt turn out and hopefully learn the demise of Bain.

OMG. Have Mercy, Gallop like a Colt, Magnificent like a Hawke. Mercy and Colt were introduced in earlier books in series. Hawke is new along with many other wonderful characters but the story line just adds more suspense if that is possible. Every book of series works into the next and every ending leaves you wanting for more. Caroline Peckham is a wonderful storytelling author. Can’t wait until the next of the series is finished.

A rebel Hunter who has turned against her own and a half blood whose crimes are much worse, stuck together but separate in the prison from hell. Between survival trials and rival leaders, these two may not have a chance. Can they learn the rules and follow them well enough to survive this punishment? Or will defiance cost them their lives? Does loyalty trump self-preservation? If you want the answers, you have to read this amazing book.

What another great read. Bravo. Well done. Normally I wish a series would continue on past the typical 4 or 5 books, but then when they actually do, I find myself getting bored with the material and wishing the author would just stop. BUT NOT THIS TIME! I can’t wait to get started on the next one.
