no. 2, The Brides of the Kindred - The Brides of the Kindred, No. 2
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Sophia Waterhouse has always been afraid of needles and vampires so there’s no way she wants anything to do with a modern day Count Dracula—even if he does come wrapped in the package of a huge Kindred warrior with blond hair and ice blue eyes. She’s only on the Kindred Mothership to participate in her sister Liv’s wedding and that’s all.
Sylvan is a Tranq Kindred who has made a sacred vow never to call a bride. After a devastating rejection on his home planet, his heart is a block of ice no one can melt—or so he thinks until he meets Sophia.
When their ship is forced down in the middle of a rugged mountain range Sophia and Sylvan are stranded. Running for their lives they have only each other to depend on. Will they give in to the intense attraction between them or will the evil hunting Sophia take its toll? You’ll have to read Brides of the Kindred Book 2—Hunted to find out.
If you are a new reader to this book, or perhaps even to the series itself, first I must say: don’t let the negative reviews stop you from reading this imaginative and fascinating series. I am new reader to this series myself and I am beyond glad that I ignored the nay-sayers to read these books. Unlike some of the others I find neither Waterhouse twin (Olivia or Sophia) irritating. I find both girls complex characters and their tales were well worth the read.
Now, onto this specific book, Hunted is a fantastic read. Sophia is a heroine that I supported, even more than her sister, Olivia, before her. She has a troubled past, one that makes the reader sympathize and want to protect her, and because of that she has valid fears that force her to be weary of her emotional connection to Sylvan. Sylvan himself is quite the charming character and, as a reader, I spent the entire book rooting for him to heal both his broken heart and Sophia’s bruised one. Together, the pair are something that everyone can root for and adore.
The plot of this novel is even more complicated than the first one and it caused my heart to race with both fear and adrenaline. Getting to learn more about the world, and the natives of, Tranq Prime was an interesting journey. The introduction of Sylvan’s younger cousin, Nadiah, was a delightful bright spot of pure happiness in a rather dark part of the tale and I hope that we get to see more of her in the future of the series. The only big complaint I have about Hunted is that I have finished this book. I would adore many more novels about the beautiful relationship between Sylvan and Sophia Waterhouse.
