I consider myself a picky reader and bore very easy. I can not say how many books I have started and not finished because I was bored to tears and came up with every excuse under the sun to avoid finishing. I also understand that some may judge books by typos, punctuation, spelling, and grammar. To be honest, if I do not like the book and find it difficult to follow I would do the same. Something about this story and these characters drew me in and I could "feel" what they were feeling and that is why I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!
In the first book, I was loving Two, not so much in this book. I love most of the new characters introduced, and hate the story of some of our old and dear characters.
Stephen and Naoimi, I felt like they got dealt a extremely dirty hand. I almost hate Two for what she did to Naoimi, and then it almost felt like she didn't have any remorse about it. I would take Stephen any day over Theron, so that was a big let down for me.
The mother...another big let down. All of that power, but the only thing she could do was avoid being killed because of a thousand yr old vow never to harm another vamp or human. SERIOUSLY!!! I felt like she could have went back into hiding.
Jakob was interesting, I would've like more of a story on him.
Overall the book was good, sad in some parts, but good. I really hate what happened to Tori, I don't know if I like the direction it is going in. But who knows, maybe I will be surprised like I was in this one.
We get to know the surrounding characters much better this time too, and the clever plot is also combined with complicated timelines and multiple person viewpoints. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't confusing to read, but I shudder at the thought of avoiding continuity errors during the writing, hats off to the author.
This book also delves deep into the vampire mythology and politics. It answered many question, but raised several of it's own. The third book wasn't available at the time I finished this book, or I am sure it would have been downloaded straight away.
I've made no secret of the fact that I was not happy with where Two and the rest of the characters were left at the end of The Blood that Bonds. I even devoted a Follow Friday post on my blog to my feelings on the subject. I'm not saying that I felt like it should have ended differently. It ended where it needed to end so Two's story could continue. I'm just saying that I wished Two could have been in a better place than she was, only because I felt so bad for her. After reading Blood Hunt, I now feel a lot better about how the first book ended and know now why it had to end the way it did. See, it's always important to trust an author to take care of his characters.
Blood Hunt was longer than The Blood that Bonds, which allowed for a lot more in depth description of vampire history and politics. It also allowed for more character development and the introduction of some more key characters. This brought you a lot closer to the main characters and help you understand a bit more of where they were coming from.
Although Two ended in a much better emotional place at the end of Blood Hunt, that doesn't mean that she didn't suffer. Actually, through most of the book she was still suffering, along with most of the other characters. There were some light and happy moments though, just enough to keep the reader from becoming totally bogged down.
Several things that Chris did with Blood Hunt kept things interesting. Chapters and sections were written from different characters' perspectives. The book was also broken up into parts, which didn't always follow chronologically. At first this bothered me, but once I started reading and saw how the parts eventually wove together, I realized it was actually a very effective way to approach the scenes.
As far as the ending of Blood Hunt as compared to the end of The Blood that Bonds? I'm not going to give anything away except to say that I was so wrapped up in the story, I never saw the twist coming until it happened. It still wasn't a truly happy ending, but Two's story isn't a happy one by any stretch of the imagination. It's dark, sad and full of conflict, but there's still hope. I'll be waiting patiently for the next installment because there are still a lot of lose ends that need to be tied. The Children of the Sun is sure to be another emotional ride for Two and the rest of her friends.
