Summary: (back cover) Hunter Wild is the youngest in a long line of elite vampire hunters, a legacy that is both a blessing and a curse at the secret Helios-Ra Academy where she excels at just about everything. Thanks to her friendship with Kieran Black, Hunter receives a special invitation to attend the coronation of Helena Drake, and for the first time, begin to see the differences between vampires that must be hunted and vampires that can become friends--or even more. When students at the academy fall victim to a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack from within. She will need someone she can trust to help her save the future of Helios-Ra...help that shockingly comes in the form of Quinn Drake, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire. Who said senior year would be easy?
Review: This is definitely my favorite out off the series so far. The chemistry between the two main characters seemed more natural and the way the romance developed had the characters acting realistically with each other. As realistic as it can get when a vampire hunter and a vampire are placed together.
Definitely full of action and fights that left me feeling breathless. This book has the most likable characters I think. Even though Quinn is a player, he doesn't keel at the sight of Hunter, instead he slowly lets go of himself and this progress is what makes the story natural.
Hunter is a very strong female lead, but she isn't paranoid like Isabeau was in the second book. Her age is apparent because she acts like herself and she also manages to be quirky and witty without being obnoxious. Hunter is a very well-rounded character who holds herself in first place and takes other's opinions seriously, but not too seriously.
Overall, if you enjoy vampires, romance, or short action filled tales, then the Drake Series is definitely for you! :) Enjoy!
