About the Book: Let the Hunt begin….
Blending in with her college co-eds proves difficult for vampire Hunter, Emma Martin, considering the mystical tattoo on her wrist glows whenever Vamps are near. And after three months of silence, the glow is back with a vengeance.
Jake Cunningham witnesses Emma, a violet-eyed beauty, using unimaginable powers to fight off a fanged creature. Finally, after two years of searching, he may have found out what he’s become—a Hunter, like Emma.
Thankful for an ally in the fight against the Vamps, Emma finds hope and comfort in Jake’s arms. As she learns more about her new love’s family and its dark heritage, she may be forced not only to hunt them but to sacrifice her life to save Jake’s soul.

My thoughts: I liked the way that this book started out showing us immediately what Emma was capable of doing. It also showed her loyalty to her friends and her willingness to take on the role that has been thrust upon her. Unfortunately, this role has also kept her pretty isolated and not willing to let anyone in completely.
Then she meets Jake. She is immediately drawn to him and they soon discover that they share some similarities in what they have been going through the past two years. Together they start to piece together the mystery that surrounds them. They think that they are on the right track, but something in Jake's past is about to rear it's ugly head and they will need to make some choices that they believe are impossible.
This was a very fast read and the story takes place over only a couple of weeks, so the pace never seems to let up. It is the beginning of the Violet Night Trilogy, so you are left with a couple of unanswered questions at the end. It is a somewhat new take on Vampires for me, and that was a nice change!
