Book Review: Hunter Avenged by N.J. Walters


Book Description

It’s taken Viking hunter Sven Knutson six frustrating months to find her. To track down the angel responsible for compromising the Forgotten Brotherhood and waking the drakon. She may be clever. Resourceful. But no one ever gets away from Sven. Ever.

All Rivka longed for as an angel was a chance to serve on Earth and help humans. Instead, it all went impossibly, horribly wrong, and she still doesn’t understand how or even why. All she knows is that she’s on the run—not only from Heaven’s dangerous elite guard, but also from the Brotherhood, who want answers.

She might just have to trust the immortal Viking whose icy blue eyes make her feel almost wickedly human. Because someone wants Rivka dead and the Brotherhood eliminated. Someone powerful enough to take on the most dangerous assassins who have ever lived. Someone who could unleash the fury of both Heaven and Hell…and Rivka is the key.

My Review

Sven is after an angel who did something a fellow Forgotten Brotherhood member and his mate. Bad move on the part of this angel, you don't mess with the Forgotten Brotherhood. But dealing with heaven and hell makes things harder when you can't always trust the parties involved. And the angel in question, Rivka is not the menace to society that Sven has come to believe she is. 

Rivka just wants to live long enough to find out who set her up and why. But to do that she'll have to trust the Forgotten Brotherhood and hope they believe her because some of the other angels want her dead, she just has to find out why and stop them. 

Once Sven finds her, she's nothing like what he thought she would be like. Plus he feels a pull towards her and she feels the same pull towards him but they fight it for a long time even though Sven isn't going to let anyone hurt her in the mean time, not even his own boss.

Rivka needs to find a book that will help her with a spell that will make the angel who's after her tell the truth about what is really going on. Once she convinces The Forgotten brotherhood that she isn't the villain they think she is and wants to get to the truth, they decide to help her and Sven goes with her to search for the book she needs. 

The fight scenes, action, danger and blooming romance between these two kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I love when a book can keep me reading because I'm so invested in the story and the characters and the twists just keep coming. This story and this series is just so good, I cannot recommend it enough. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
