Midnight Hunt by Arial Burnz
My Rating: 5 Stars
Not sure how she did it, but Arial Burnz topped her own work with Midnight Hunt the third book in the Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles. Ms. Burnz takes her readers to 17th century Germany, to the home of a young and feisty witch who has a very special connection to the ancient vampire, Broderick. Alone for decades, Broderick has wandered, his family is long deceased, but on the 80th anniversary of his beloved Davina’s death, a miracle occurs, and the prophecy one again intrudes on Broderick’s life. Monika is young, fiery and fierce, a witch of many talents and her connection to Broderick runs soul deep. How does this young girl evoke long dead emotions in the vampire? As always, danger is casting its dark shadow over Broderick’s life, but there is more to fear than Angus, as other creatures no have Monika on their radar. Is she, too part of the prophecy that could save the world of the creatures from the dark? The curse of the werewolf is spreading and only Monika can end their suffering and killing sprees. With the odds stacked against them, what kind of relationship can Monika and Broderick have? How has she stolen his heart? How can he forget the love of his life, Davina?
Arial Burnz had made fast-forwarding to the future seem easy! Not a link in her chain breaks, the flow feels so natural, I felt I was there, seeing all of it. With characters as fresh, varied and unique as her vampiric tale, Ms Burnz once again, flexes her writing muscles and turns her imagination loose to create a riveting and atmospheric tale. Highly recommended! Sit back and savor the flow of Arial Burnz' historical world.
