So, I have read the super “popular” vampire series, but haven’t really given more thought to the genre. I loved the cover of this book (which is how I pick all books, no synopsis reading here) and wanted to expand into something other than my usual genre. I was NOT disappointed at all. I enjoyed the interactions between Edith and Darren and I appreciated that this was a story led by actual storytelling and not sex. I found the premise to be one with great promise, I loved that it flowed and was a quick easy read. I would have liked the characters to have a little more depth and backstoroy, but am hopeful it will be in the next book. Overall I felt the authors did a great job, and can I just say this book had some of the best editing I have ever seen! If you enjoy vampires, minimal violence, and more substance than sex this will be a book you will absolutely enjoy!
I love Biglow and Zenk’s collaborations to date and this latest did not disappoint. I was immediately captivated with the book opening and stayed glued to the pages to find out what would happen next. Just a very enjoyable book – I certainly hope to read more!
I give Hunted by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk, 4 stars.
I really enjoy how the authors put their own spin on this vampire romance. Introducing the role playing game to me was ingenious. It made for an interesting and new base of a story. But this is not all this book has to offer. The characters in the story are what really makes this book so good. It’s not only the main characters, either. There are so many secondary characters that were quite interesting as well. I hope to see more of them in books to come too. But let us not forget Edith and Darren. They both have their own issues and misconceptions they have to try to overcome. The struggle and how they deal with them really make this book shine.
If you are a fan on interesting vampire romance, this book is for you.
I really enjoyed this book. I found the story interesting and fun. The best part of the story was watching the love between Edith and Darren. They are two vastly different individuals that were on two divergent paths. It was a joy watching them find and discover each other and their love. The story itself had a lot of twists and turns which made for a very interesting read. I look forward to reading the next installment in this adventure by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk.
I love the supernatural genre, especially vampires, so I was quick to read this book and it did not disappoint! I was really intrigued by the concept of this book and the human, vampire relations and I could not put this book down. If you are looking for a quick paranormal read with an amazing storyline and great characters, this is the book for you.
Review by @rochelle
Hunted by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk is the first book in the Hunted series and was an incredible read! I was drawn in from the first chapter and had trouble putting this book down. This isn’t your typical vampire book, and I really enjoyed reading some of the quirks of vampire abilities I’ve never read in a book before. This book was jam packed with action, suspense, and a little bit of romance, enough to make this book feel like a very quick read. All of the characters were very enjoyable to read, especially Darren and his character development throughout the story. This was a great read and I can’t wait to read the next installment of the series!
I really enjoyed this story. It is a vampire romance which I always enjoy. The book drags you in and grips you from the beginning. The author’s does a great job writing the characters so you can’t help but feel the emotion they are going through.
Edith is a vampire. After her fiance dies in the war she is turned into a vampire and for 100 years she has lived with her “daughters” Hope and Angel.
Every year they hold a convention. Its seen as a role play weekend where people can see what the life of a vampire is like and if they want to they can also be turned.
However this time is different. Two of the people on the weekend are Hunters.
Darren and his younger brother Dan are trained as Hunters and its their job to rid the earth of vampires. When Dan goes missing Darren follows him and finds him at Edith’s weekend convention.
Things aren’t what they seem though and Darren and Edith need to work together to figure things out. The closer they work, the closer they become. Can a relationship between them ever work? Can Darren forget being a hunter to save Edith and her family? And what or who is working against them.
Hunted by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk
Biglow and Zenk know what they are doing. Hunted was a fantastic read! It’s like True Blood meets our crazy world. Vamps and Humans.
Edith has been a vampire since the 1900’s. She has only ever sired two Humans and her sire wants to make more. She meets two boys with the last name of her lover. The quote I chose for Edith is: “Humans and vampires both have their meals in the dining room off to the left.”
Darren is a Hunter and wants to keep his brother safe. When his younger brother wants to go to a Convention he follows. What he doesn’t know is his brother has just signed up to play a vampire. The quote I chose for Darren is: “Sorry about that back there. Don’t mind us. We’re brothers . It’s like my solemn duty to rough him up from time to time. Or, in this case, follow him to some crazy LARP weekend.”
Highly recommended for Paranormal Vampire lovers.
This is a tale of vampires and vampire hunters, two sets of people leading very different lives and each others lifelong enemies, but that is just most of the clans, however, the Heartsong Clan wants to change this perspective from one of violence to one of peace and coexistence, that is why they hold “Human vs Vampire” LARP reenactments so that humans can learn a bit about Vampire culture and then maybe chose to become one of them and this weekend is another of these events where humans and vampires mix together for a few days.
This book starts with Edith on her wedding day as she prepares to end her life, she has lost her love and sees nothing else to live for, she just wants to be with him, she is walking into the river with the stones in her pockets until someone calls to her from the bank, this person is Mr Heartsong, a vampire she knows from the VHA (Vampire Human Alliance) and he is trying to glamour her to convince her that Daniel would want her to continue to live and to be happy and also stop her from joining Daniel in death.
100 years to the day she turned, Edith is leading the LARP event with Hope and Angel her two daughters, they are just like any other family, apart from they are vampires and older than they look, as they man the booth where people sign up for the event, a young man, Caden comes to sit and chat with Parker, another vampire and the girls and it turns out he is there to help with the recruitment drive, Edith is initially reluctant to trust the young man, but decides to give him the benefit of the doubt when the girls say that they trust him with their lives, as does Parker. As the day goes on and more people sign up, they have their first “vampire” added to the list, Dan, he is friends with the girls and Caden and it seems that he wants to learn more about the vampire way of life.
Next we meet Darren who is Dan’s brother and only wants to chaperone him to the nerdy convention that his brother is interested in attending, but he feels uncomfortable as soon as he enters the building where he can’t tell the humans and the vampires apart and as a hunter, it is something that he hates. He realises that he has lost Dan in the crowds, but remembers that he spoke about going to meet some friends while there, but getting there that late in the day, Darren is a little worried about him and starts to stress out when he can no longer see him because of their history. Darren has intel that the Heartsong Clan are recruiting at the event and he prays that that isn’t why Dan is here, however, if he is, then it will be a great way to get some inside intel on the Clan while meeting his brothers friends.
This is where Edith and Darren come face to face and meet for the first time and although the insistent banging on her office door is giving her a migraine, she remains polite and as she opens the door, another wave of memories hit her. It is then that he asks to join in the LARP and reluctantly, Edith agrees and gives him a tour of where he will be staying for the weekend, as they do this, Edith explains the rules of the weekend and the game play, as well as what will happen and when. When they see a group with Dan in, Darren takes him to one side and they have an argument about why Dan is there and why he left Darren in the convention and neither of them is happy with the situation, but they both go to the dining room when the bell is sounded for the meal. It is later that night when Darren decides to go and check that Dan is alright that all hell breaks loose as the weekend takes a turn for the worse and this leads to Darrens worst fears, that Dan is in danger and he is realising that Edith is not like any other vampire he has ever met.
Will Dan and Darren be able to escape the convention, or will the vampires show their true natures? Will Edith be able to come to terms with the memories which are flooding back and be honest with herself and Darren and will he be able to be honest with her as they grow closer? The only way to find out is to read along and discover their revelations at the same time they do.

Hunted by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk is a collaboration between two fantastic authors which has resulted in a great fantasy story that will really grab your attention. I loved the combination of fantasy and geek with the LARP storyline, it isn’t something I recall seeing before but I definitely enjoyed the way they were brought together in this book.
The characters were strong and really connected well. Their worlds were completely adverse to one another and yet the way they tried to make something work was great to see.
I have read both of these authors previously and I loved the fact that they have combined their talents to produce this gem. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book and I hope to see more of them together in the future.
