Bewitching Book Tour: Blood Hunters series by Marie Treanor

Blood Hunters: a sequel series to the Awakened by Blood trilogy

Blood Hunters, Book 1

Natural enemies, deadly attraction...

Mihaela, a fearless vampire hunter secretly haunted by loneliness and childhood tragedy, finds it difficult to adjust to the new world order where vampires are not always the bad guys. She's taking a much needed vacation in Scotland when she sees a little boy being chased through the streets of Edinburgh. Rescuing him brings bigger problems - two vampires from her past: Gavril, who killed her family; and the reclusive and troubled Maximilian, gifted Renaissance artist and one-time overlord of the most powerful undead community in the world. Maximilian once saved her life and now needs that favor returned.

The earth moves for Mihaela in more ways than one. From Scotland to Budapest and Malta, she  races against time to prevent a disastrous, vampire-induced earthquake and save an innocent yet powerful child – all while fighting a dreadful attraction to Maximilian, her only ally, whom she can’t afford to trust. For Maximilian, the hunter becomes a symbol of renewed existence, as he struggles to accept his past and rediscovers his appetite for blood and sex - and maybe even happiness.


Blood Hunters, Book 2

Obsession... a wounded hunter, a damaged vampire

Six months ago, vampire hunter and inventive genius Istvan nearly died in the seminal battle that would change the relationship between humans and vampires forever.

A year before that, he first encountered sexy vampiress, Angyalka, owner of the Angel Club, favored haunt of the undead. Istvan won that round, but when he recklessly seeks her out again in search of the secret of angels, he's alone and so exhausted he can barely stand, let alone fight vampires. Plus Angyalka's out for revenge, and very happy to use his powerful sexual attraction to her…

But Angyalka has her own secret weaknesses amd terrifying strengths even she doesn't understand. Their battle becomes one of wits and sex, but when someone bombs the club, they fight together to contain all the threats closing in on the Angel, from humans and vampires, including the sadistic killer who could just be dangerous enough to finally topple undead overlord Saloman.

As Istvan struggles to harness the mysterious power of angels, Angyalka needs a deeper strength to send away the fascinating hunter who delivers on all her deepest sensual desires and yet can't come to terms with her vampire nature.

A child is born...into the final showdown of Vampire and Hunter

The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child…

Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.

The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that  might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.

Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.

While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter: and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man.

Review of Blood Descent by Marie Treanor

Blood Decent by Marie Treanor
5 out of 5

Oh my goodness!  What an awesome story to kind of help everything come full circle!  I mean, almost everything J.


Konrad, aka the big and bad hunter, finally comes to the point where he has to face who he is, why he feels as he does, and get the answers to the questions he has had about what he is and who the voice in his head is.  But, with that said, he is one stubborn arse and he can be one horrible bastard.  Yet there is hope for him. 

Maggie seems to be pretty cool. Maybe it is just for the fact that she has stayed more human than the other vampires that we have met in previous books.  I liked that about her.  With her being over 60 years old, with most of them being as a vampire, she still seems to find most of the joy in her life from the “human” aspect. 

Everything Else

I loved how Dmitriu was playing matchmaker again.  First, it was Elizabeth and Saloman.  Now it is Maggie and Konrad.  Very nice round about.  Maybe it is the only way that Dmitriu knows how to show Konrad the wonders of the vampire race.  Maybe it is just to piss Konrad off.  Doesn’t matter, though, because it works in the most unlikeliest way.

I, like Maggie, got excited and then hurt when she woke up to Konrad handcuffing her to the radiator.  It hurt because you feel like they need to be together. But when they finally got together, oh, good night!  It made me happy because everything was coming together as I thought/felt/knew it should be.

I love how everything is going on.  The revelation of the vampire race to humans, Konrad learning to love a vampire, Elizabeth going into labor, the birth of the baby.  It is all so much, but you can’t help but read, read, maybe sleep and then read some more. 


I loved this book.  It had romance, sex, adventure, intrigue, everything that you need for a well-rounded paranormal romance.  Thus, I highly recommend it, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by Ms. Treanor.
