Book Summary of Unleash the Night.
Wren Tigarian has lived nearly his whole life at Sanctuary since his parents killed each other. He's been a loner since his traumatic childhood but though the other Were-Hunter dislike him he can never leave as that would mean being hunted by his own family for the fortune he inherited.

Unfortunately, he's left with no choice when he falls for Marguerite Goudeau. Maggie is the daughter of a prominent U.S. senator and the other Were-Hunters can't but help fear the danger of exposure. He soon  finds himself and Maggie on the run when he is accused of insanity and murder by his relatives.

Book Review of Unleash the Night.
Unleash the Night is another miss for me in the Dark-Hunter series. Neither Wren nor Maggie's feelings for each other seem believable at the start of the book. Was it love at first sight ? It didn't feel that way to me. Maggie seems more repulsed by Wren when they first met and only seems to be attracted to him after he saves her. Wren certainly was attracted to Maggie from the first but I couldn't fathom any reason for it at their first meeting. Over time when each proofs their acceptance and devotion to the other, but not before.

Then, there's the way Wren and Maggie first evades everyone when Wren first escapes from his hunters and collapse at Maggie's place. The hunt seems to begin conveniently only when Wren wakes up from his coma and not before. How in the world could Maggie have kept him hidden until then against magical creatures of the night ?

The book only starts to get interesting when other characters like Savitar and the Kattalakis brothers show up. While none of the Kattalakis siblings alone are a favorite of mine, I do enjoy their brotherly banter. Its both funny and sweet the way they play off each other.

I'd suggest giving this one a miss since it doesn't even affect any of the goings on in the Dark-Hunter world.

  1. Hi there! I found you via the Friday Blog Follow thing (sorry I'm tired and not real with it) and I noticed that you reviewed this book (which I mostly agree with you on by the way) and I have just yesterday reviewed it as well. I wondered if you wanted to stop by my blog and read what I thought.

    Have a great day!
