This was a good read. I'm glad I finally got to read this author as she's been on my list for ages, but I hadn't got to her, having been a bit disappointed with other forays into this genre. I love romantic suspense and, I don't know, I just can't find a lot of authors in this genre that I like. I love Karen Rose, who is my fave and she writes the perfect books for me, and although I didn't like this as much as a Karen Rose book, I think this author will be someone I will be adding to my list of ...more

Starting to get use to Allison Brennan's writing style. This was a decent read, and right up "kjen's" alley :)

Definitely a romantic suspense - the main character is so driven in finding out who the killer is, she falls under the subject "Obsessive". She is a very likable character with such a horrible experience in her past, has the strength of a couple of strong men - both vying for her, but it is plain which one her heart really belongs to.

A serial killer with a game plan has been running loos

An absolutely gripping suspense /thriller! It will leave you squeamish yet turning every single page. The characters and situations are believable - the good guys have flaws and the bad guy has reasons. It did get just a bit cliche' in a couple of places but never did it cease to hold on!

Shelves: suspense
A combination of strong characters, a fast-paced plot, and interesting twists and turns. Allison Brennan did a good job of filling in the back-story so if you didn't read the first book in this trilogy you'll be able to know what's happening and why.
Margaret Yelton
Another good thriller from Allison Brennan. Although a lot of her books tend to follow along the same storyline to a large extent. Overall a good book.

Wow! I didn't believe it was possible, but this book was even better than the first book in this trilogy! Every twist and turn in this book had me twisting and turning too. It's 1:30am and there's no way I can sleep! Look forward to reading the next book in the series!
Twelve years ago, Miranda Moore escaped from certain death from the clutches of a serial killer known as the Butcher who managed to murder her best friend. He’s still at large and she’s dedicated her life to participating in the searches for the young women captured and killed since her own abduction.

Fast paced and utterly terrifying plot. These books are a lot more suspense than romance. The heroine is tenacious and stubborn. Miranda is driven, even if it puts her in danger. The hero is steadfast and in control when everything is coming apart around him. Loved Quinn.

For twelve years Miranda Moore has lived with the visual and invisible reminders of what happened to her. It has defined her whole life. Each spring when the Butcher takes another victim it is a reminder that she survived while

The heroine's nickname is "Randy"? Good Lord. :-D
This whole series has the feel of 80s/90s romances where the guy is obnoxiously arrogant and the female is underwhelming. I've liked all her others, just not this trilogy.

The writing wasn't as strong as I would have liked. And I've decided I don't like excessive lovey-dovey in my crime thrillers; or a least not the Mills&Boon variety lovey-dovey

Harlequin romance, with a serial killer plot, plus formula more apparent than Grisham's.

The Hunt: 4.75:
Brennan is gifted with the ability to spin a tale that grabs you from the first page and never lets your interest falter, even after turning that last page. The Hunt is a prime example of Brennan's skill at emotionally engaging, graphically detailed storytelling.

This is the second in the series of the Predator Trilogy. I liked the book alot though I would have enjoyed it more if there was more romance. But I'm a romance junkie. The story and suspense were top notch (I don't know how she would write in such detail without being first hand).

Miranda is a woman that years ago was kidnapped, torchered and raped. But when she and the other girl that was kidnapped with her were let loose to be hunted by their captor, she alone survived. Now years later the sa

When I picked up this book I wasn't sure what to expect. How could it be as good as The Prey, Ms Brennan's debut book? Nothing could beat that, or so I thought. As you can tell, I was not disappointed. The Hunt, the second book in this trilogy is just as good. In fact, in some ways The Hunt is even better. Allison Brennan has yet again pulled out all the stops to create another gripping masterpiece. As an entertainer she knows how to pack a punch!

The Hunt – Allison Brennan Review:

Miranda Moore is a distant character you would have touched base with in The Prey. She is used as the leading character in this the second novel of the predator trilogy from Allison Brennan. Miranda Moore miraculously survived the onslaught of a serial killer twelve years prior, a killer they are all yet to face. The Butcher continued to kill Miranda continued to battle her own demons, her fears as she partakes in all the search and rescue efforts for al
