Review by: Jonel Boyko on May 10, 2013 :
I love it when you read a novel in a series and the characters continue to grow, especially when the characters are young adults. Every single one of Stoyanoff’s characters do this with abandon. They are all obviously the same person that they were in the beginning but they continue to grow and morph to fit into their ever changing circumstances. The relationships between the characters are not static either. They change in minute and in major ways right along with the characters.

This installment of the series is much more intense than the first was. The love story is still very much a part of the story; however it does take a back-seat to the more action packed storyline. There is always something (or multiple somethings) happening to keep your attention on the page. This is also not a read that calls for complacency from its readers. I definitely did not expect a few of the twists and turns in this story.

The author’s writing is also nearly flawless. It flows eloquently from paragraph to paragraph and from page to page. The characters’ speech is realistic, sounding the way that an individual would speak.

If you liked the first book in the Soul’s Mark series you will absolutely love this one. One thing that I do have to mention with respect to this novel, however... If you don’t enjoy cliff-hangers, wait until the next installment is published before beginning to read this one. Enough said.

Review by: Isis Erb on April 15, 2013 :
This book continues pretty much where the first one left off, and the series is designed in such a way that you really do need to read the books in order if you want to understand and fully enjoy them.

Amelia and Mitchell reach a place of tentative accord, thinking that with time they will manage to work things out more fully. However time is not a luxury they have, for a group of vampire hunters have come to Willowberg. The very fact that there are vampire hunters in town shocks everyone to their core, vampire and human alike. They had all felt so safe and certain that Mitchell could, and would, protect them.

Not only are the hunters targeting vampires, but they are also focusing on Amelia and her cousin Megan with startling intensity. In addition to all the increased action in this book Amelia is being given hints as to who she was, and is told that all of this is basically her fault. Not just all of the vamps in Willowberg being hunted, but the very existence of Hunters. Plus, the existence of two more 'beings' are laid at Amelia's feet.

This book has more action than the first, and we get to learn more about some of the other key players. We also learn why Eric feels so attracted to Amelia, a fact that has been causing some serious rifts within both the family and larger community. With increased action and more fully developed characters this book seems to be a faster read than the first since the focus is no longer on the constant spats between Amelia and Mitchell. It helps that Amelia begins to grow up a little and starts to take the feelings of others into consideration, rather than remain the temperamental, whiny, self-centered brat she'd been for the bulk of the first book. Though she still loses her temper, she at least learns to control it a bit more. With the way this book ends, please make sure you have "Broken" at hand and ready to read the moment you finish with "Hunted."
