Something strange is happening to Nessa. Ever since she survived a near-death experience she’s not exactly who she used to be—and enjoying every minute of it. Then she’s called upon to go to battle against darkness. If only she could remember why.


Dominic is having his own problems with memory, sanity, and hallucinations. Sent to Excelsior, the covert Hunter training facility, he senses a female presence that seems so hauntingly familiar. That’s because he and Nessa share a forgotten past.


As Nessa and Dominic regain their memories, their strange mission against evil becomes clearer. And all the more dangerous because whether they should trust each other is the still the greatest unknown of all.

Why I Read this Book: I’m always up for a Shiloh Walker read. It all started with Broken and I’ve been hooked on her writing since. She writes great romance stories with lots of heat.

What I Liked: The journey for Nessa and Dominic’s reunion. It wasn’t easy and boy, were there obstacles. The hero and heroine had to work at their relationship, more than you can imagine.

The author didn’t disappoint with the love scenes. If it’s one thing I know I can count on with this particular author, it’s chemistry with the hero and heroine and hot steamy love scenes. There wasn’t an overload of love scenes in this book since the hero and heroine don’t share page time until more than 1/2 into the book.

Even though I get the feeling that Nessa’s story began earlier in the series, I felt like I got her whole story in Hunter’s Fall. I was a bit confused about Agnes’ character in regards to Nessa in the prologue but that was cleared up 2 pages later.

What I Didn’t Like: I felt like I was missing part of the connection with some of the characters. Duke, Ana, her brother Brad. There’s a hint of something from the past regarding Ana and Dominic but it wasn’t elaborated on.

I did get confused at times while reading Hunter’s Fall. The Nessa/Morgan storyline got a bit confusing for me. There were quite a few characters thrown into this book and I didn’t know where they came from. Probably from one of the previous books in this series. While Hunter’s Fall can be read as a stand alone, I’d say it’s probably best to rest the whole series to catch up on the other characters that were mentioned. And to find out Dominic’s back story as well.

Overall Impression: For me, Hunter’s Fall is a book that I could have benefited more from if I had read the rest of the series; to fill in some of the blanks. There are some characters in this book that have already been established in the series that I would like to get to know better. Like Malachi and Kelsey, Duke and Ana. I’d also like to read Brad’s story. Hunter’s Fall is somewhat of a complex read, one you won’t want to rush through.
