Hunters & Prey by Katie Salidas - Review

Becoming a vampire saved Alyssa from death, but the price was high: the loss of everything and everyone attached to her mortal life. She’s still learning to cope when a surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the friend she’s missed more than anything.

Alyssa breaks vampire law by revealing her new, true self to her old friend, a fact which causes strong division in the group that should support her most: her clan.



Hunters & Prey (Book 2 in the Immortalis Series)

My Review:

Hunters & Prey by Katie Salidas was a fantastic addition to this series. Alyssa is having repeated nightmares about their worst enemy, Santino, who belongs to the Acta Sanctorum. This group wishes to rid the world of vampires, deeming them monsters and killers. Lysander brushes her dreams off as stress related, that is until the enemy hits a little too close to home.

While Alyssa is hunting, Santino confronts her sending her running for safety. Fearing he would follow her, she doesn't want to lead him to their home putting the rest of the clan in danger. She has no choice but to flee to the very Cafe' she was forbidden to return to.

Now involving her best friend Fallon, trouble has only just begun. When Fallon is kidnapped at the hands of the enemy, Alyssa risks everything to save her, including her life. What they never expected was to gain help from the very man they feared. Who will be the ones to make it out alive?

Salidas did a great job with this installation. I loved that we saw the enemy with no choice but to help out Lysander and the clan. There were plenty of twists to keep you turning the pages and you were left wondering if new vampires would be created and who would still be alive in the end. The best part was how much we see Lysander's and Alyssa's relationship grow, her now deeming the right to her standing in the clan. 

I definitely give Hunters & Prey 5 Flaming Stars!
