I received copy of this book to review for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. The first book in this series released over a year ago, and as I was reading Hunted, I kept thinking about how the story and characters have developed exponentially since then. Things are coming together and making sense while still giving Kemp much more story to tell. I was no longer scratching my head wondering what just happened. The characters are more fully developed, and I was better able to connect with them. Plus I was just darn excited to find out what was going to happen next! LeKrista has changed in many ways from the first novel, all for the better, while staying true to herself. Her physical appearance has changed. She doesn't spend so much time passed out, and she's much stronger and quite a fighter this time around. I was happy to delve into LeKrista's family history, and as I got to know her and her family, I felt more connected to her in this book than in the first one. When she begins having disturbing nightmares where she's emotionally devastated over and over again, I wanted to kill the person hurting her in those nightmares. I wanted her to get revenge in those terrible dreams. They affected me in a way that made me want to cry for her. In Hunted, I learned more about Pierce and why he's been keeping a huge secret - he's more than human but can't tell LeKrista until they're married and have consummated the marriage. I think this is really interesting and different from other stories. The heat between Pierce and LeKrista has been turned all the way up! In the first book, their relationship seemed blah and lifeless. I wondered why they were even together, so I was excited to see they are passionately in love. I'm still not sold on Roman's character. Different characters have been snarky to LeKrista about choosing to associate with Roman, but really, he came for her to protect her. She didn't seek him out. I don't trust Roman; I think he pretends to love LeKrista because he wants the very same thing as the vampire he created - to use her to take over the world so vampires don't have to hide from humans any longer, not to mention the fact that Vampires, Mages, Werewolves, and Shapeshifters are all vying for power. For the minor characters, I love Tate the most. She's become LeKrista's best friend. Craven, the daywalker, is a new and interesting character thrown into the mix. He's a welcome addition to the cast of characters, and as a daywalker, he differs from vampires in a few ways that I thought were really cool. Lizette is just plain annoying. Shouldn't she blame the one who turned her into a vampire rather than LeKrista? Sometimes her vendetta felt like a repeat of when Perdita was after LeKrista. When it comes to Eddy I'm torn - much of the time I don't like him, but then he'll say or do something that makes me think it's possible I'll end up liking him. I'm still trying to understand the Mages. LeKrista learned she's a powerful Mage. Since she's a Mage as well as her family, why won't the Mages help her? I understand they don't like that LeKrista has been mixed into vampire affairs, but I'd think they would want to help untangle her from all that. Xiomara, who is one of the most powerful Mages and the one who seems to be in charge, has a cold heart. I think she's afraid of LeKrista's power. With time, memories, and events shifting all around, characters with magical powers, and mysteries to be unlocked, Hunted is a book not to be missed.
It saddens me to say that this book was poor in my opinion. I had high hopes for an adventurous and full read. I hate to keep criticizing authors incessantly with the same judgment but: credibility was the biggest factor. Credibility is the liability with the author to make such full and developed characters, situations, or plot points that things are BELIEVABLE; therefore making it engaging and enjoyable. I didn't believe LeKrista was a mage, let alone an arch mage, and I didn't believe the grandmother had all the mystical title she had either. There was no evidence of this, if anything both characters appeared weak. The second grave error in the book were random events and scenes strung together to make a story. I did not believe the author was strategic yet cohesive in the plot points and story progression. If anything she seemed like she was doing mindless writing from plot point to plot point. Thirdly, there were too many characters.The first book was kind of shaky too, but it was so unique, some things are forgivable. I just feel Ms. Kemp needs to hone and focus her talents, as she does have a unique edge. I hope to see her grow.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.LeKrista was awesome and kickass once again. She squared off with those vampires and never backed down. Even when her family was in danger. It sucks that her family was dragged into this mess. Especially Dante, her brother -- I felt bad for him. Finding out that her mother wasn't crazy and her bloodline was all so enlightening because now there's a better understanding to her seizures and her visions.Pierce is still a mystery. I am dying to know what he is and why it has to be secret? I love how territorial he gets towards the other males in the book, but he over does it with the whole Alex thing. That scene in the hotel where he was trying to teach her to keep her shield up…ummm…I literally had to re-read that twice because it confused me like hell. I mean it was a very smart way to teach her, but at the same time I was thinking "damn. Pierce is one sexual paranormal being" lmfao! For him to not want to have sex, he sure did overstep that line a bit. Roman still pisses me off. His love for LeKrista is overdone and he needs to simply fall back. I hate how he acts, but I love that she learned to block him from her mind. His reaction was pure shock. I think Roman should just be happy with his harem and leave LeKrista alone with Pierce.All these damn vamps after her is crazy. I mean is solely because she is supposed to be the next ArchMage? I mean even the head ArchMage wants her dead.This ended on a sick note with Roman kidnapping her. I mean really Roman? Was it seriously that damn necessary?

WHOA.Yeah, that's right, Tyff, you get a .gif for this bad boy.I didn't think Kemp could top Scorned. Sequels always have a bit of a disadvantage with me; I'm usually afraid to read them, especially when I loved the first novel, because I always feel they can never measure up to the epicness that was book one. NOT the case here. LeKrista has REALLY grown since we last saw her in Scorned, all for the better (I know, I can't believe it either) and she's gotten even more interesting. We learn a lot more about her and her family, and her very sexy friends (*ahem*), but it's not to the point where it's gotten boring. The story keeps up with the suspense and tension, and keeps me continuously guessing throughout the book.I really don't even know what to say here. Kemp has rendered my speechless, for one, and the story is SO complex I am genuinely concerned I'm going to f*ck up and accidentally reveal something I shouldn't. *chews nails* And I truly would hate myself if I wrecked this book for anyone...Okay, long story short-- Scroll up, buy Scorned, read it, love it, live it, and then get right into this. Please. Really. Do yourselves a favor and listen to me, okay?Now.... When does Conquered come out?
Tyffani Clark Kemp started this book beautifully by introducing you to LeKrista. You can identify with the heroine LeKrista because she is just a “regular” girl, she isn’t rich, drop dead gorgeous, size 0, or have a glamorous modeling job. She hates her job and those she works with and is living a boring life, it seems, so it’s interesting when she meets the vampires. LeKrista kills Lucretious and her life will never be the same. Now his girlfriend wants LeKrista dead so Roman gives her his protection. There are twists and turns with LeKrista’s relationship with Roman and also her boyfriend Pierce that keep you turning the pages. I loved this book and couldn’t wait for the second to come out. You should definitely read this series. This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. Brenda, of Brenda’s Book Beat
Oh boy this book is amazing. Fights with other new vampires. Struggles with her new life and her new family. Her fight against her self and her previous family and protecting them from her new family.Amazingly written story as always. LeKrista is a strong and powerful character that has such a vulnerable side to her as she struggles with her new life and the new world she has been thrown into. Roman is so mysterious,yummy and sexy. But he seems so evil and manipulative that i want to strange him. If only that would kill him. haha.4 stars
So this is book 2 in the LeKrista Scott series and while I loved book 1 I wasn't quite as into this book. There was just so much going on that you need to remember and I wound up kind of confused. I will admit I had 3 other books going at the same time which didn't help. This was a good continuation to the story and I can't wait to read more of LeKrista's story because while this one had me slightly confused and frustrated it was still absolutely amazing and well worth the read.Rating:4 out of 5 stars
Hunted is an amazing sequel to the story that began in Scorned. Sometimes authors have a hard time following up in books, but Tyffani actually made this book even better. I loved Scorned, yet Hunted had me on the edge trying to figure out how all the puzzle pieces fit together. When I finished the book I felt like the little girl from the commercial " I want more, I just want more!" This is one of the rare books where I cannot decide who is my favorite character because there are so many amazing ones!! I cannot wait until the next book in this series!
averageThis is an ok read if you are not an avid reader of paranormal romance. There are much better writers of the genre out there, but for 99 cents it will keep you occupied.
