Kirja-arvosteluja

I like Feehan’s writing style, it is descriptive and she takes time with her action scenes. Her Dark series is based in the common world, and the main characters are not typical vampires but more shifters that drink blood. She has added in several of other mythical species into the series so far. She incorporates strong family values into her novels and keeps characters recurring.

The only thing that bothers me is that the male characters are always similar and aren’t rounded with unique personalities. Sometimes I get them confused as I have been reading other books while progressing this series. It’s very long with a lot of characters to remember.

★★★★ I would recommend this one as long as you start the series from the beginning and in order.

I read this book a few years back and I didn't like it, but so many people love this author, that I decided to try again and check if I didn't change my mind. This time I truly hated it and I hardly managed to finish it. I didn't like the writing style, the hero was creepy - I'm sorry, but it's definitely not for me.

First Impressions
Leopard’s Hunt is the NEWEST release in the Leopard People series by Christine Feehan. This is book #14 and I can’t believe we are this far in this series. It just feels like yesterday when I read the beginning books of this series. Its actually not as old as some of her others. I was really excited for this one and this is an author that I really just auto buy and just dive into her books so quickly and easily. This is one of my most anticipated reads for the WHOLE YEAR! That is how excited I was for this one. I just loved the previous book so was eager to see what she would handle with this one here. Even though the heroine is kick ass, I trusted in Feehan to deliver and she DEFINITELY did that with this one here. Lately Feehan has been writing a ton of kick ass heroines and I am kinda drained of it, I miss her softer heroines, BUT I will say that she made this heroine really work for me when I was NOT in the mood for her, so that should tell you how flawlessly written this book is.

First Line
Gedeon Volkov had been a fixer for years--and he was considered the best in his field.

Summary
This book starts out with Gorya Amurov, who has taken over his lair who has been corrupt for years with drug and human trafficking and he is putting a stop to this modern age slavery. So many leopards are getting caught up in it and he is determined to win this war against it, no matter what he has to do to stop it. But he knows that he and his leopard are more ruthless than most in his circle. He hires on Gedeon and Meiling to kill him when he has gone too far. But then through a turn of fate, he finds a woman locked in a basement, who is just as lethal as he is and without hope for anything good in this world just like he is. Maya Averina was taken as a child, and raped and tortured and lost her whole family. But now she is coming through her first heat, and she finds her mate in the most unlikely of circumstances. A man who is cold and ruthless but calls something to her and is just as lost and without hope just like she has been and they connect to each other. Their leopard’s encouraged both of their humans and their romance has been one that was encouraged by their animals. But they find such solace and healing in each other while also fighting the threat to their lair and a hidden conspiracy to destroy them and their work against the human trafficking rings…

What I Loved
Leopard’s Hunt BLEW my mind! Christine Feehan definitely delivered a story that is guaranteed to keep you on edge from beginning to end. And this book is where we get a serial change of sorts and I love it when she does these plot building that gives hints on what is coming up next. I honestly didn’t know what to expect about this one, but it was way different than I expected going into it. I also was so ALL IN for this romance. I loved both of these characters. Gorya and Maya have such pain and heartache and your heart immediately goes out to them and the struggles that they have faced. Despite how powerful and kick ass both of them are, they have such vulnerabilities and they don’t fight their attraction or their bond like you would expect from such strong personalities. The relationship just flows so smoothly despite the fear and reservations that they have regarding it. We get some old favorites including DRAKE and some connections to what happened in “Savage Nature” and I really adored that connection there. The plot is really thrilling and wow the plot connections is so crafty and cunning and such evil is in these villains here. It does get pretty intense in that respect, so make sure you know what to expect going into this. It really tackles some tough issues and its one of the elements to this author’s writing that I really respect. I love that she writes about real issues that not many authors are willing to address especially in matters of human trafficking.

What I Struggled With
The pacing in the second half was a bit off for me, I had a hard time really keeping up with the story and there was a couple of plot holes or maybe I just accidentally missed them. Normally Feehan is really good about making sure these don’t happen. But otherwise it was a powerfully written story that if you love anything paranormal, you need to read it!

Overall View
Leopard’s Hunt is a true masterpiece of thrilling plot devices, characters that will tug at your heartstrings, and a story that will addict its readers in like a moth to flame in such a stunning delivery to pack the punch that only this author delivers! A WONDROUS INSTALLMENT TO MELT YOUR HEART FROM BEGINNING TO END!

Favorite Quote(s)
“You’re never going to lose me, Maya. Never. I’d find my way back from hell to get to you.”

I can’t breathe without you, Gorya. I’ll never be the same. I haven’t been able to breathe without you since the moment I laid eyes on you. We belong together. The pair of us. Broken. Damaged. We wor together. No matter what happens, we fit…

Baby. We’re already woven together. The same heart. The same soul. The same skin. They broke us to pieces and when we put our pieces together, we became one. You. Wraith. Me. Rogue.
