~Review~ Destiny Unchained by Leia Shaw

Blurb: They call her The Huntress. A vampire with lethal focus, Natalia hunts rogue werewolves and kills them without mercy. She buried her heart centuries ago. Now she lives only for revenge. But when she’s forced to team up with the alpha of the northwest werewolf pack to catch a werewolf serial killer, her carefully controlled world is shattered by the passionate Cristian

Cristian can’t help be intrigued by the icy Natalia. He hasn’t been attracted to a female since his mate died decades ago. But now he vows to break that hard shell she wears and find the warm, nurturing woman inside.

Will Natalia accept Cristian’s claim on her heart even if it means sacrificing a part of who she is?

1st line in the book--> “Crouched on the ground Natalia crept silently through the leaves, her sharp gaze focused on her target.”

Two unlikely people must come together in order to stop a serial killer in Leia Shaw's third novel in her series. Christian the Werewolf and Natalia the Vampire, meet in the most unlikely way, and from there on its a cat and mouse game they play with the killer on the loose.

I really enjoyed this novel. It keeps you on your toes by slowly revealing vital information about the characters. Its a dark adventure with a side of delicious moments. Christian is the perfect partner for Natalia because of his easy going attitude and snarky comments, while Natalia is an old vampire who has forsaken her feelings and only has one goal in mind... bring pain to those she hunts and kills. The struggle for Natalia to accept that she can love again plays an important role while she is trying to bring the killer to justice. 

There also is a cameo appearance from some of the characters from the previous novels, which I enjoyed because its always great to see where they are after they have their HEA.

If you haven't picked up her novels, I highly recommend this series! I personally can't wait for Maddox's story!! This is another great book that I can reread and satisfy my need for a great chase filled with intrigue and some hot lovin!

Fave Quotes!!

A nickname? This was getting far too personal. “Talia? We’re on a nickname basis now. Good to know, dog.”  

She snorted but it was too weak to have the effect she intended. “A werewolf just called me beautiful. I must be dreaming. I passed out from the sun, didn’t I? I’m probably dying slowly in the woods.”

Passion?” she spat. “What is passion but an excuse to act like fools?” In a mocking voice she said, “I’m in love. I can act completely irrational and idio –”
She cut off with a gasp when a snowball hit her square in the face. The cold stung her cheek and she growled.

  1. I don't see any other place to make a blog post comment for Leia Shaw.

    Anyway, 'Destiny Unchained' sounds pretty good. And I do like Chex cereal.

    Thanks for the GC contest/ giveaway. Happy New Year to you both.
