Blade on the Hunt
(Rowan Summerwaite #3)
by Lauren Dane
Urban Fantasy
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]“When you awaken, you will have to find her yourself. Or she will find you.”




These were the words given to Rowan Summerwaite by the Goddess as Rowan lay clinging to life. Broken—but not defeated—by the ancient Vampire Enyo.




After weeks of mandatory down time, a recharged and vengeance-fueled Rowan heads out from her father’s Keep, leading a team of some of the most terrifying beings on earth with one goal in mind—track and eliminate the Vampire who attacked her.




But as the team moves across Europe and is hit with wave after wave of attacks, the tensions between Clive Stewart—the haughty, stylish Scion of North America whom Rowan grew even closer to during her recovery—and a rival Vampire ramp up. Befuddled, confused, flattered and annoyed, Rowan’s the woman in the middle. She’s not used to being claimed in a way that’s not about how strong her sword arm is or who raised her. Clive Stewart is everything she shouldn’t want in a man—he’s bossy, he’s a Vampire, and he considers her his—but she’s past denying how it makes her feel that he fights for her the way he does. She’s past denying she’s in love.




In contrast to the uneven footing falling in love has given her, Rowan is utterly certain she will locate her quarry. She’s stronger and more powerful than she’s ever been after the tests and bloody lessons of the last years. Her connection with the Goddess is seamless and the light of her mission burns from within. And she’ll need all the help she can get because it’s not very long before Rowan and her team realize the threat is far greater than one crazy old Vampire. There’s a war brewing and Rowan will fight it to the death. It’s what she was born to do.[/learn_more]

Mercy and her husband, Peter, are happily preparing to welcome baby Colin into their lives.

  1. I need to read The Weird Girls Carmel, I’ve heard so many great things about that series! The Elemental Assassin and Kate Daniels series are pretty much the only UF series I consistently read, and I think I need to add more to that list!

    • I’m passing on all of the new releases this week as well which actually worked out well because the Vision in Silver ARC just landed on my eReader. SQUEE!!

  2. None for me this time around. Weird Girls book 1 was only ok for me, so it’ll be a while before I try to read anymore. And the Molly Harper book was already released in audio and I’ve read it 🙂 phew, my budget can’t handle any others right now!

  3. This was a rather quiet week, wasn’t it. I read A Cursed Bloodline already and enjoyed it and I have read a couple of terrific reviews for that Gunpowder book, so I am contemplating getting that one. I got the Molly Harper Christmas audio book for free and I am looking forward to that one.

    • I passed on Gunpowder Alchemy when it was up on NetGalley, but two of my go-to bloggers LOVED it, so I think it’s going to end up on my TBR pile one way or another.
