Free download The Hunter

Is a western taking place during the ate 1800 s on the planes of the wild west The paranormal factor is strong and is the heart of the storyline The steampunk attributes are related to the props than the setting and way of A Bird in the House life Think Will Smith s Wild Wild West with demonsThe story focuses on the youngest of the three Jackson brothers all raised to be Hunters men and women that hunt down and kill the Darkin which torment the human world Colt was told by his fatherong ago that someday the boys must collect and unite the three pieces of the mythical Book of Legend to prevent the coming of the creatures from Hell to end of the world In his solitary journeys Colt discovers a piece of the Book is hidden behind a door that only a demon can accessEnter Miss Lilly A human turned succubus after making a deal with the evil demon ord Rathe to protect her sister she makes a bargain with Colt to help him open the door Although a Darkin Lilly comes across human than demon and it makes me wonder how she survived the past 25 years as a succubus At times I felt she was a bit too prim and proper to be a believable succubus Also I felt the use of her demon powers was not consistent throughout the book sometimes flashing in an item to help them and at other times sitting back remaining helpless Together Colt and Lilly take on the challenge of finding the first section of the book Both are instantly attracted to one another but are cautious given their respective backgrounds and situations Colt constantly uestions if his growing need for Lilly is because of her demon powers and Lilly doesn t trust because of her father s grifter ways At first I found their budding romance sweet I adored that she refused to use her succubus powers hoping to find out if Colt was really falling for her I admired their baby steps forward and oved when they would give into a passionate kiss However after about three uarters of reading this back and forth play I grew a bit weary of the constant inner monologue each had uestioning hisher own feelings and the other s motives I felt that there was too much contemplation and not enough actionThe overall plot of reuniting the pieces of the Book is interesting and I The Last Imaginary Place like the mythology Ms Meyers has fleshed out in The Hunter The conclusion was adeuate but I was not completely satisfied with the actions Colt took to fulfill his promises to Lilly Knowing that there are still two books in the series I am okay that the details of her world aren t rock solid or completelyaid out in this first book it Not Just Roommates leaves room to grow However I am aittle disappointed that the steampunk factor wasn t a bigger part of the story Maybe it s the engineer in me but I wanted a Cassidy Harte and the Comeback Kid (Outlaw Hartes, larger integration of the devices and instruments for the world to be reliant on the steampunk way ofifeAll in all a good read and definitely worth picking up if you enjoy westerns and paranormal romances I Jean-Paul Sartre look forward to finding out where the story is headed and how the Jackson brothers will save the world The next book The Slayer is due to release next April and I will beooking for it in the stores Colt Jackson hunts the supernatural In Colts world all the supernatural beings are bad and should go back to hell where they belong Colt s friend Marley makes him some weapons to help accomplish that Colt is on a mission to find the pieces of a special book that will help stop the supernaturals from entering their world The first part of the book he is Vintage Games looking for is behind a door that only a supernatural being can open Colt does what he has to do and summons a demon The demon that comes to him ends up being a beautiful succubus named Lilly who has an agenda of her own Will they be able to work together to accomplish Colt s uestMy thoughtsI didn t end up finishing this book I read almost half though so I did give it a fair chance Why didn t Iike it I was bored and couldn t get into the story at all There was also no feeling to the words that were written This story had definite potential it could be a good story unfortunately it doesn t have the pull of one It doesn t suck you in and make you want Instead I found myself avoiding it or only reading a few pages at a time For example there are some action scenes where Lilly and Colt have to fight other demons in a cave in search of the book This should be scary but honestly I could not have cared Zamba less There isn t really anything else to say about The Hunter and I think the fact that there isn t much to say says it all 45This is a great adventure which starts even before Colt summons Lilly As the youngest child his father tried to spare him theife of the Hunter but a demon tried to kill him and they all realized he had to be on it From the moment he summons Lilly neither will catch a break till almost the end of the book It is a fast paced story with very The Erotic Motive in Literature little sex that was managed perfectly They are a great team and I am not talking about romance She is resourceful smart and she realized right away that he is her best bet to become human again The chemistry between these two is nicely done and the constant interruptions didn t annoy me at all since they moved the story forward And there are aot of those Every time they get close to each other something happens to stop them Still every single thing that does that makes this story a great adventure so you don t even notice they didn t get The only thing that gets sorted out in this book is their romance I don t think it is a spoiler to say they end up together this for people who The Detour like to know if there is a happy ending The rest of the story is in his brother s books Ok so this book is a WesternCowboy mixed with Supernatural the TV Show plus a pinch of Steampunk You will either enjoy the cheesiness of it or consider it fanfiction of the show I chose to enjoy it Some of it was aittle cringeworthy especially Colt s thoughts on the Succubus Lilly But overall it was a decent read I will The Crime Trade (Tina Boyd likely continue the series at some point. Charm and brain plus his silveroaded pistol and mechanical horse save them so far but he may need to sacrifice his so.

With his brothers Winchester and Remington out of the family demon hunting business Colt s job just keeps on getting busier until he finally decides that it is time to track down the egendary book on Hunter The Glass Palace lore which holds the key toocking the gate to the demon realm once and for all The only catch is that the book is in three pieces and that it takes a demon to get to the piece of the book that Colt s father hid away So first step Summon a demon But when he does Colt ends up not with a horned and hooved abomination but a devastatingly beautiful succubus named Lilly instead Colt strikes a bargain for Lilly s help and seals the deal with a kiss but working with the enticing Lilly is complicated and that s even without taking into account that Colt doesn t know that Lilly has her own agenda and time will tell whether Lilly decides to take a chance that Colt can help her regain her Something Like Fate lost humanity or whether she fulfills her mission and takes the piece of the book and Colt s soul too back to her master in hell The Hunter Theresa Meyers The Legend Chronicles series starter is promising mix steampunk the Old West paranormal and romance Iiked The Hunter but I really wanted to A Gun for Sale love it Great inventions airships and Colts mechanical horse Tempus work to give it that steampunk feel And early on there are flashes of what could have kicked the story up that notch to Iove it in some action seuences where Lilly and Colt are working together and fighting their way at the edge of hell to Colt s target and in Colt s interactions with one of his Brothers I would have Archetype (Archetype, liked to have seen just a bit of that dynamic too My nits with the story were that in the first half Colt and Lilly feel thin characterwise which is wierd and I can t put my finger on exactly why I felt that way since there is a decent amount of backstory for the pair It might be that there was a bit of telling versus showingike where Colt tells us he s a charming adies man I also had a nit with Lilly I may have missed something but Lilly as a succubus who had been good at her job of stealing men s souls and who was a con artist in her human days felt inconsistent to me Lilly starts out being fairly saucy and capable and she has demon powers that she uses in the beginning of the story but then for some reason she becomes very vulnerable concerned about being demure and damsel in distress y as the story goes on If this had felt that this was intentional perhaps a ploy to get Colt feeling protective in order to win his trust and then changed once she decided that she was falling for Colt I d have been happier But I have to say that the story did pick up in the ast third with some Indiana Jones type action and also I starting feeling Colt and Lilly and their relationship finally seemed to gel So with that and the decent presence of steampunk elements I did end up A Gun for Sale liking The Hunter and I think that most of my nits might have been due to typical first book in a series kinks so I still have high hopes for both of the brothers books and we ve already met the women a vampire and a shapeshifter that are going to help them on the uests for the other two pieces of the book Winchester s The Slayer is up next in April 2012 with Remington s The Chosen out in December 2012 35 StarsA dash of the old west a sprinkle of steampunk and dollop of the supernatural makes for a uniue new paranormal romance with The HunterColt Jackson is a Hunter born and bred though his parents tried to protect him from the familyegacy when a demon attacks him as a boy his father trains him to take down any and all of the Darkin Now the only active Hunter of the Jackon s Colt is searching for the missing pieces of an ancient book one he knows his Pa had The Darkin are growing in numbers and the only way to keep them from escaping the gate is putting all three pieces together and closing the gate for good But he needs a demon to help him and when he goes to summon one what he gets is a seductive succubus who wants to be human and who will test all the rules he has as a HunterThe Hunter was a good Indian Jones isue adventure full of action and danger with a slow building romance between Colt and Lily that felt real and believable I People of the Book loved how author Theresa Meyers mixed steam punk elements such as weapons and gadgetry into the paranormal while giving it an old western setting all of theseittle facets where perfectly blended and balanced with each otherThe Jackson brothers Winchester Remington and Colt along with their inventor friend Marley Turlock were incredibly intriguing and well rounded characters that came to Encore, Grace! life on the pages Colt is a sexy cowboy Hunter named after the gun with a Stetson boots duster and all His romance with Lily the Succubus builds unhurriedly with a good amount of sensual tension Colt experiences some internal struggle over the fact that he is a Hunter and Lily is a demon and that just doesn t mix along with trust issues with her but he eventually comes to see the woman beneath the succubus in between treasure hunting and fighting off rock demons hellhounds mechanical scorpions and a sadistic archdemon named Rathe Lily s character on the other hand was a bit of a contradiction One of my issues was she would play the sultry succubus on one page and then the next she was a demure miss trying to act the properady It didn t uite jive and I ended up unable to really connect with her The world building though was superbly creative and well detailed and I could easily place myself right on Tempus the clockworks horse riding through the dessert and cacti or even up the rugged mountain trails in search of a hidden mineHowever this story moved slowly for me and took twice as ong as normal for me to finish I can t put my finger on exactly what the problem was maybe it was just a stressful week for me because I did enjoy the book and ook forward to the rest of the series but I hope the next books have speed to them All in all The Hunter was a good Colt Jackson is one of three brothers who hunt supernaturals across the frontier He needs to summon his demon to close.
