The Hunt is Book I will start by saying that this was an incredible book. I don't even know where to start... but I'll give it a go, so others hopefully see this and go start buying these books. HKW deserves all the recognition she can get.... there Firstly, what I love about every single book, is the charcters. I am so invested in them all and have come to care for them all deeply. Every single person is present in the newest book. Nobody is left out. Therefore the book comes in many different POV's. Which is great. There isn't one second spare to become bored. By 25% into the story we have visited every single couple and most of the new people. I was so happy to hear that 'Danny' was pregnant, and with twins. Those precious scenes with Lucas and Dannai were beautiful. It was so nice to see that they had gotten married and were so happy. Also there were some scenes with Malcolm and Charlie. From Malcolm POV, we saw that he has changed a lot since he was mated to Charlie. He's not quite so dark and brooding. The curse that had been passed on to her when she was turned has now gone. So they can now live happily without that burden!. I was so hapy to see Jesse Graves again. I loved him in the last book. Charlies grandfather (the overseer) died in the last book. Jesse, being sentinel, was asked in the will to be the new overseer. Imani (Dannai's friend) has taken Alberich's place as head of the coven. There was deffinatley a spark between these two. I don't think this is the last we have seen of them! As always, there were the really funny parts, that in the middle of danger and chaos, gave me a little chuckle... Bryon and Kat were arguing about getting a hotel room... Bryon - "yes, we will be togther in that room. You" he said slowly and pointedly "and me."Kat - "You're out of you fucking mind! Bryon raised an eyebrow, "I didn't realise ladies said such things." I loved this quote because it really showed Bryon for what he is at this stage in the book. He is not from this time. A lot has changed since he was taken prisoner 50 years ago. Bryons electrical powers were awesome and ended up coming in very handy when he and Kat were locked up togther in an electronically controlled prison. Say no more :) The cave scene was a big step forward in their relationship. I loved this quote... "Bryon Caige represented everything a mother ever warned her daughter about." and it only made me wish he was mine even more lol. And the 'marking' was HOT! There was quite a build up of 'bad guys' in this book. e.g Manuel Sanchez, he wants to take over the Hunters, since Phelans death. Malachi Wraythe, warlock king. Father of the vampire/offspring princess who held Bryon captive.The plotline to this book may have just been the best of them all. I honestly could not put it down for more than 5 minutes. Most books I read, I will admit that I skim quickly through some of the boring bits or POV's that I'm not all that interested in. But not this story. I really hope that with the werewolf curse (women not being able to have children, and having no powers) being lifted by Katherine/Kat that the race will flourish. And lots of babies means we will probably see a lot of the practice lol All I can say is well done HKW. Another fantastic addition to a series that is going from strengh to strengh! Cannot wait to see who's book is next? Jesse maye... . Byron Caige has been a prisoner for the last fifty years of his supernaturally long life Just when he gives up hope of ever knowing the taste of freedom again, he is unwittingly rescued by the very same woman who only wants to see him dead Katherine Dare Kat is smart, fast, strong, and beautiful but unfortunately she s a Hunter, and she s convinced that Byron murdered heByron Caige has been a prisoner for the last fifty years of his supernaturally long life Just when he gives up hope of ever knowing the taste of freedom again, he is unwittingly rescued by the very same woman who only wants to see him dead Katherine Dare Kat is smart, fast, strong, and beautiful but unfortunately she s a Hunter, and she s convinced that Byron murdered her father twenty years ago.She s also Byron s dormant.As supernatural war breaks out amongst the otherworldly of Earth and threatens the existence of entire races, Kat is faced with a terrible decision Should she give up her cause and believe Caige when he professes his innocence Or should she fight him and possibly avenge her father s taken life even while she forfeits her own. A viral Ebook The Hunt I have read all of the BBW series and have fallen in love with the world that Heather has created for her wolves and other super natural beings.The strength of the characters, the pain, doubt and tribulations that they have to endure make the characters real and most of them carry on from book to book. Each one centers around a specific couple, but since the wolves make up one large family you get little tidbits from each of the previous couples which tie into the current story nicely.Although each story has the same basic premise, (how will the alpha male claim his mate?) the journey that the individual couples go through to obtain that goal is what makes each story unique.The Hunt is one of my favorites so far. I suppose it may have been because of all the extra internal battles that were going on between everyone involved. Byron and Kat had more obstacles than any other couple in the BBW series. They both had very tortured and tormented souls. Not that the other couples hadn't been through a lot, but the fact that Kat actually thought that her pain and suffering had been caused by Byron made you wonder from the beginning how they could ever get past it.It was nice to see all the twists, turns and surprises that Heather had in store for all the previous characters in The Hunt. I also love the way she has of making you actually love a character that you never thought you would want to. There are a lot of Wow! moments in this one and yes, the steamy scenes are there as well, but they are added bits of spice, not the central theme of the story - they are worth waiting for though :) There are also heart wrenching moments along with comical ones that take you by surprise. This one was a hard one for me to put down. I kept thinking that I would read one more chapter and when I got through that one I couldn't stop.These books aren't for everyone, but those of us who have grown to love these characters will not be disappointed in The Hunt and are already waiting for the next installment.

  3. I was a little distracted while reading this book If I LOVED it, I am not so easily distracted Since it brought back many previous characters, and I have read 30 40 books since the last one, I had a little difficulty remembering who was who But then I remembered.I had trouble with that when I read the first 3 also St Claire St James Charlie and Danny all easy names to confuse She brought back all the old characters, and I just couldn t remember the backstories enough to really get into this book [...]


  4. This book was probably my favorite out of this series so far except for maybe the first one I m not sure This book kept me interested through its entirety, but I did end up taking a break towards the end because I was just bored with paranormal romance at the time Good werewolf series.


  5. 4.5 stars Hopefully, the ending is a lead off to a next book.Recommend you start off with book 1 of the series, or you won t know much about all of the characters that show up in this story.




  6. The story wraps up the series and brings all the different sup races together as Byron Caige escapes the vampires and finds his mate among the Hunters It also introduces the main character for the first of the next spinoff series The Kings the Vampire King.Very exciting Lots of running around, magic, rescues, miraculous healing and angst Fave scenes escaping the vampire castle, Danny, Lily Claire s phone calls, the brotherly reunion and skinny dipping.




  7. The Hunt is the final book in The Big Bad Wolf series and for me, it s the most intense of them all Why Because Byron is alive We learned at the end of The Spell that he was being held prisoner by the vampire princess But his brother Lucas and the other werewolves don t know this After spending fifty years as a captive, Byron finally gets his shot at freedom and in the midst of his escape he encounters a dormant his intended mate Sounds great right Freedom Check Dormant mate Check Mate s occupat [...]

  9. The last book in the series and my favourite Lucas believes that his brother was killed half a century ago by magic casters Byron has actually been held captive all that time as a vampires sexual plaything he has been kept isolated from the world, it s developments and advancements He has effectively been kept in a time capsule of pain, sexual depravity and isolation.His one and only thwarted escape resulted in the tragedy of innocent blood being shed.He finally escapes when his captor is killed [...]


  10. Kat and Byron were two of the most enjoyable characters of this series for me I loved her courage I loved Byron s determination Their love story fell perfectly into the destiny of the werewolves that are the backbone of an exciting series overall.I felt like this is a wrap for the wolves Finally the curse I never understood had an origin and a means to be broken Kat, as a hunter, had contributed to the closely approaching extinction of werewolves She believed that Byron had killed her father and [...]


  11. The Hunt, fourth and last book in the Big Bad wolf series was my favorite of the series.Byron, Lucas s brother was not dead but prisoner to the Vampire princess the daughter of the warlock king.For 50 years he has endured her torment and the only time when he managed to escape the kings man killed an innocent bystander.For a brief time Byron saw and sensed the promise of a dormant.Kat is the little girl of the man killed to punish Byron She is a hunter looking to kill the werewolf demon who kill [...]


  12. This is actually a second times I read this series The first was so long ago that I couldn t remember LOL Anyway, after the second read, I was reminded again of how brilliant these books are I love The Big Bad Wolf series and also its spin offs and I can tell you one thing that makes Heather Killough Walden books so very wonderful There is no black or white in her books everything is a gray area Even the most vicious villain has his her own good side and thier own reasons Sometimes you read abou [...]

  14. This book did not disappoint at all I really liked Katherine and the way her character grew in this novel, she went from killing the race to saving the race at the end Byron was also a well developed character, I found it funny that once he is finally free after being held prisoner for 50 years he finds his mate right away what luck.Katherine had a lot going on in this book she was a hunter but the only she became one was to kill the wolf who killed her father all other wolves she didn t care fo [...]


  15. This is another great instalment in the Big Bad Wolf series, and is full of action and excitement and also cleared up a few loose ends from previous books The only downside to the book, is that it tended to jump around a lot from character to character in each chapter, and there were a lot of different character s from previous plot lines in this book, which at times got a bit confusing and I found myself going back to earlier chapters to clarify things Having said that, however, this showed the [...]


  16. This was a truly inspiring story A great tale of vengeance, redemption and the power of love I hope it is not the last in the series, I see that it could be, but I really want Jessie and Imani and even Jason to get their own stories Katherine Dare s father was murdered when she was 10 years old She finds him in a pool of blood, with a werewolf standing over him She becomes a hunter Yet, as fate would have it, she is a dormant, a destined mate for an alpha werewolf, and precious to the werewolf c [...]


  17. I really loved the characters of Byron and Kat, and the romance did not disappoint This series is amazing for chemistry But I was expecting of a conclusion Such as the destruction of the hunters Maybe it will be followed up in the spin off Kings series I already read The Vampire King but it was a long time ago and now I feel like I should re read it There were probably things I didnt catch, and some familiar characters I think The Spell was probably my favourite of the series I still really enj [...]

  22. I really liked The Hunt, the fourth and last of Heather Killough Walden s The Big Bad Wolf series, and, like the three books before it, I found it to be humorous fascinating magical surprising romantic at points terrifying and dark at other points and for lack of a better term amazing Heather brought out new twists to werewolf culture, and to the rest of the supernatural culture in general in this book as well I deeply enjoyed the story and its characters, especially the two main characters I ho [...]


  23. I really really wanted to make this one 4 stars but in the end I just can t Byron is a great character and his back story could ve made the story so much better I find myself saying that a lot about this series Kat is a pretty good female MC, I wish she d been consistent but at least she wasn t spineless It s pretty obvious by this point that there were going to be spin off books about the various kings vampire, wraythe, etc but they are interesting, so much so that I found myself wanting to kn [...]


  24. I read The Heat , The Strip , The Spell and The Hunt in a compilation With this in mind this review is posted along side each individual book.With Alpha wolves, serial killers and beautifully smart strong female leads these books are a must have for any paranormal romance fans The intrigue and complex plots flow beautifully through each novel combining into a fantastically vivid prompt to the reader s imagination The background of each novel interlocks with the previous story to build a larger p [...]


  25. I actually liked this book and did smile a couple of times while reading it It had a good amount of action and a pinch of romance Had the book been longer I m sure it would ve been romance I didn t care for the way it kept jumping from one character story to another It did all tie in near the end but it was quite confusing and you have a couple of moments where you have to go back to remember who is who This is the first in the series I have read and according to some of the reviews the last I [...]


  26. All of the other books in this series I read within a few hours Thus one took me a few days I had a hard time remembering which characters went with which book I couldn t remember the pairs very well and there wasn t much of a backstory to remind me It s probably also because I read books 1 3 back to back and have read too many books to count in between those 3 and this one I thought I read this was the last in the series which is why I went ahead and read it but the epilogue definitely makes it [...]
