Blood Hunt Sentinel Wars #5 [E–pub/Pdf]

Blood Hunt Sentinel Wars #5Le ocus is on Logan and HopeMy TakeThis story is of a bridge in that Butcher introduces a new species and new problems in this story opening the possibilities even wider With all the Orchestra of Exiles: The Story of Bronislaw Huberman, the Israel Philharmonic, and the One Thousand Jews He Saved from Nazi Horrors falloutrom earlier stories there are a number of problems which need resolution and Blood Hunt Compass of the Heart: A Novel Of Discovery furthers the potentials both good and badTheocus here is on Project Lullaby a plan by which the Sanguinar intend to create a Her Highland Rogue food supplyor their race There is a lot of reciprocal rescuing going on in this story WhewButcher keeps the action moving and provides yet depth to the various involved groups Including a scary close up of one of Solarc s Wardens I do eel sorry or Logan So attracted and so Le grand Meaulnes - Texte abrégé (Jeunes Adultes) forbidden Butcher had a very clever solution in thisI got to thinking about the demonic behavior of the Synestryn Krag and I realized he is similar behavior wise to human males who think they can boss women around and beat them All the ugliest actions of man The sentinel men are several steps uprom this although I do have issues with how they approach their particular romance needs Did the Solarc ever consider that the children of the men he was punishing were his own grandchildrenIt s been an intriguing series Not one of the best but I do appreciate Butcher s skill at the long tease Since the Wolfie Paints the Town: A Little Wood Story first story Burning Alive Butcher has dropped the teeniest hints and slowly increased up to teeny and not so teeny up toyou get the ideaabout the true origins of the sentinels and the Sanguinar Each time giving us just a bit I have to confess it s this tease that has me coming back I want Grampa to get hisThe StorySteve and Pam are under attack at the warehouse and Logan has been

is one of the Sentinels and a member of the Band of the Barren whose lifemark is bare and he is hanging on only by sheer willpower Other Sentinels in this story include Morgan Valens Torr who is desolate over Grace s sacrifice and Nicholas Jackie Patton was one of the women rescued and compatible with several men but she wants nothing to do with any of them She understands that Helen and Lexi are her longlost sisters but there is no emotional attachment hereAndreas Phelan is the new leader of the Slayers with a proposition Politically Incorrect for Joseph Lyka Phelan is his half sister Eric Phelan their brother is a possible mateor HopeKrag is a major demon anxious to prove his worth to his demon lord Beyond Varallan father Zillah is the demon who held Tori prisoneror so long Ava is a pregnant human held captive by Synestryn Sanguinar need blood to live to heal the Theronai Sentinels but that blood is grudgingly given Project Lullaby is intended to increase the numbers of ood sources so they are no longer reliant upon a small group and all the Sanguinar efforts are channeled into it Slayers are a Sentinel group who slay Sentinels who have gone beyond the pale or some reason Slayers and Theronai are enemies The Band of the Barren are Sentinels living on borrowed time hoping to ind their soulmates Theronai are a subgroup of Sentinels who battle the Synestryn They battle in male emale pairs and it is only when the men are paired with their mate that they have a chance of surviving Well and some amazing skills at ighting Gerai are humans who know all about the Sentinels and the Synestryn They re backup support Synestryn is A Generic Name For A Wide Variety Of Demons Intent generic name or a wide variety of demons intent enslaving the human raceThe CoverThe cover is a background of smoky purples and a black clad very young looking Logan holding a sword before him and wearing jeans and a black leather vest open to reveal his muscled chest and arms The title is true enough as Logan is continually on a Blood Hunt in this story Now I can truthfully say that I read all the Previous Books Just To books just to of Logan and Tynan though they are manipulative bastards And I am really glad that at least Logan Rocker Babies Wear Jeans found his better part uick rundownWhat I enjoyed Hope Logan Surprisingly sweet couple Very refreshing change of pace Just wish of the Sanguinar characters other than Tynan played a part in this We don t get much back story or history lesson about the mysterious Sanguinars till the very last page which was a missed opportunity IMO Your hero is a Sanguinar why withhold all that information till the very last minute Missed the boat there Andreas New leader of the Slayers Very intrigued by this guy He has a ton of presence and sounds sexy Love the pointy ears but why the hell are they called the Slayers I m intrigued by his bargain with Joseph and the trade they made I like the possibility of him with the Gerai human Carmen His reaction to her was very telling As long as she gets her act together and stops acting like a selfish indignant brat mini rant I really don t get this girl s deal Herlippant ungrateful attitude towards her adoptive ather Joesph is super annoying and over the top The poor man She thinks he accepted to be her adoptive ather out of obligation and she s offended by that Common sense reason seems to be missing here You Sono with Visits from the Seventh finally got what you wanted and now you re unhappy with it Pssht The only reason she offers herself as part of the trade with the Slayers is to get awayrom Joseph and Dabyr never mind the Remarkable Creatures fact that the man has given her everything she could askor and took her in when she had no place else to go She jumped at this opportunity to get away rom Joseph What a peach If it wasn t or Andreas I would have wished Heroes Adrift (Hero, for someone to chuck their shoe at this twit and be done with it Nicholas the scarred Theronai with the beautiful kind eyes He s too sweet to be left alone Please authorix it What I wasn t impressed withHow many different kind of Synestrians are there Every time someone has an encounter with these monsters they are described differently Some look like wolves with shark teeth others are human like with no Chuck and Danielle face or missingingers with odd joints and scaly patchy skin some are like snakes some are giant centipedes dolphin like ishes with tentacles giant walking roaches think Men in Black dogs with green glowing eyes etc etc These things come in all shapes and sizes and are continuously changing in looks and breed in every single book Is there a reason or this At irst I assumed there and breed in every single book Is there a reason or this At Gray Bishop first I assumed there sub species different kinds but now I m beginning to think Butcher makes them up as she goes alongor the hell of it If they are interbreeding or using hosts or bodies then it needs to be explained cleared up This is 5 books in the world building really needs to be better than thisNika WTH is wrong with you I like this girl but her sister Andra s overprotective obsessive controlling idiocy is rubbing off on her The way she cornered Tynan and tried to strong arm him into staying instead of helping Logan and Hope was such a WTF moment or me It made me want to smack her Her whiny ungrateful obnoxious attitude towards him got under my skin the most acting like Tynan did nothing to help Tori Are you kidding me She pretty much was treating him like a leper and a servant just like some of Theronai guys do all the time Left a bad taste in my mouth Not everything is about your sister Nika so settle downStill not a big an of how Butcher writes her heroines The scene I just mentioned with Nika and that whole drama with Ca. Both all prey to Krag a powerful desire grows between them But is it enough to thwart their captor's diabolical plan and his demon warriors and survive a vampire's destiny written in blo. Never come out of the background guess Butcher might be saving them Liar for a book where their thread is the main one So bottom line is that I liked Blood Hunt though it didn t knock the previous book out of myavorite of the series spot and since Butcher has a lot of balls in the air story wise it will be interesting to see what happens next As Noir far as starting here if you are new to the series I wouldn t recommend it and oldans who haven t done a series reread before starting Blood Hunt might want to stop about half way into the book and do a second read through of the character list at the Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are front of the book it s easier to digest somehow after having seen the characters interacting together a bit Blood Hunt4 StarsSynopsisSufferingrom amnesia Hope Serrien is searching Gaffer for her true identity and uses her ability to see auras to help homeless people on the street Her charges have recently begun disappearing and while searching Hope encounters Logan an enigmatic stranger who promises to aid Hope in her uest The two soon discover that the other is hiding secrets and that a terrifyingoe is determined to use them Circumstantial Evidence for his own nefarious ends ReviewOne of the most appealing aspects of the Sentinel Wars is the multiplicity of story lines While some readers mayind this distracting because there is a lot going on Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers for me this not only enhances the world building and the overall story arc we areinally given details of the third group of Sentinel warriors the Slayers it also makes it easier to identify with the different characters because they are so well developed across the various books However or this reason it is crucial to read the series in order The ocus in this book is on the Sanguinars who have been a morally ambiguous group until now and it is particularly interesting to see things A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping from their perspective The suffering they must endure and the threat to their race is as compelling as that of the Theronai and explains much about their secretive behavior Logan and Hope are an intriguing couple with wonderful chemistry It is a sign of Butcher s writing skill that she can create a character such as Logan who comes across both as honorable and self sacrificing but also as manipulative and conniving It was difficult to warm up to him in previous books but he charmed me completely in this one Like the other heroines in the series Hope is strong willed and plays a significant role in the action another highlight The conflict between Logan s growing attraction to Hope and his duty to his people is at the heart of the story The way in which everything comes to a head and the resolution of their romance makesor a satisfying read even though the push and pull between them is Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) frustrating at times As mentioned above the secondary characters are well written and several will obviously beeatured in their own books Jackie and Iain s book is next but I m also interested in seeing what happens with Joseph and his Slayer counterpart Andreas Overall Blood Hunt is a great addition to an excellent series SynopsisThey are the Sentinels Three races ancient guardians of mankind each possessing uniue abilities to protect humanity against their eternal Summer Meditations foes the Synestryn Nowor one Sentinel the only way to reclaim her God Said, Ha!: A Memoir forgotten past is toollow the bloodHope appeared out of nowhere naked and alone a woman without past The only thing she knows is that she is imbued with a strange power It s in her blood And two men want to possess itOne is Logan a Sanguinar demon ighter who needs Hope s essence to survive As a vampire he s well euipped to ind her a like blooded mate whose progeny could sustain his race On the Right Side of a Dream for generations The other is Krag a Synestryn lord whose desire is to enslave Hope and drain her of the lifeforce With it he could control humanityoreverWhen Hope and Logan both all prey to Krag a powerful desire grows between them But is it enough to thwart their captor s diabolical plan and his demon warriors and survive a vampire s destiny written in bloodMy ThoughtsI loved this installment So many new revelations Things are coming together and also still alling apart A number of our beloved characters are on the edge but others are thriving and Operation Iceberg : The Invasion and Conquest of Okinawa in World War II finding hopeI really liked Logan and Hope as a couple I love their reactions to each other It was just sorustrating watching him constantly try to keep her at arms length Project Lullaby is important but man That was driving me insane Still is was so nice to get so much inner monologue Arrows of the Night: Ahmad Chalabi's Long Journey to Triumph in Iraq from Logan We ve seen his POV in previous books but since this was his book and we ve had information regarding Project Lullaby we get to see that he doesn t actually enjoy manipulating people He and the other Sanguinar do it to save themselves but by saving themselves the other races benefit as well I never thought it through thatar before but if the Sanguinar were to die out who would heal the Theronai when they got those serious injuries Who would develop antidotes to counteract Synestryn poison Who would help them be able to have children again The Theronai aren t very kind to the Sanguinar but they need to get over some things Whatever caused the rift between the races happened so long ago It seems that they are developing tentative truces so here s hoping that all works out Hope was a pretty awesome heroine She went after what she wanted when it came to Logan without making an idiot out of herself And she was strong And selfless She was just a damned good person I like her She did so much to help even when she had no idea wtf was going on When she got her memories back at the end and showed Logan where she d come Michelin Green Guide Normandy from I was happy Someone out there is looking outor the Sanguinar They need itSome thoughts that I posted in a thread about this bookview spoilerIt seems that someone outside of the Athnasians have been watching over the Sanguinar I m wondering if the Slayers have someone like that or them too The sad part about it or the Sanguinar is that the race they originally descend rom thinks they re revolting and can barely stand to share blood with them Everyone s revulsion of the Sanguinar has bothered me since book 1 when Drake nearly bit Logan s head off over Helen I get that they don t like the act that the Sanguinar have so much power over them when drinking rom them but the way they treat them rubs me the wrong way Those scenes where they treat them

"badly are always "
are always or me to read Even Before We Learned Just What we learned just what the Sanguinar have been keeping What Every American Should Know About the Rest of the World from the others and I didn t trust them it was hard to read They might have to drink blood to live and they have the power to do some horrible things to people with that blood but they do so much to help And it sounds like long ago when strong blood was plentiful they went around helping people all the damn time It just seems so wrong to meor the Theronai to behave the way they do towards the Sanguinar As much as I hate the manipulation the Sanguinar use to make Project Lullaby work and the secrets the keep I Got a New Friend from the rest of the Sentinels if they died out they d all end up dead I seriously think the Theronai to re evaluate the way they treat the Sanguinar hide spoiler 35 stars This series really has me hooked I took a long break after Madoc and Nika s book and I thought that I would be lost Iell back into this story like nothing happened Honestly Logan wasn t my The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War favorite character He ended up endearing himself to me I also liked his relationship with Hope and the different twist about Hope s origins The romance was good and I enjoyed it but I have to say that the intrigue and the ongoing storyline is what hooked me with this book I like how all the secondary characters add to the story No one is justiller in this book The action is very good and there are some very scary elements with the Senestryn They are just gross and disturbing I know that I and there are some very scary elements with the Senestryn They are just gross and disturbing I know that I way behind on this series but I really appreciate how SKB continues to grow this series I look Experiencing the Resurrection: The Everyday Encounter That Changes Your Life forward touture volumes and I am still eager or Tynan to get his own storyPS I blame my sister or getting me into this book series Sorry not sorryOverall Rating 4550 stars Fifth in the Sentinel Wars paranormal romance series revolving around several groups of sentinels charged with preventing demons rom breaking through The coup.

Originally posted at uote Okay Take a peek but I swear if you try anything unny I ll beat your head in with my The Meaning of Star Trek flashlight Ms Butcher once again delivers a dark gritty action packed story that held me spellbound A smooth storyline and continuously evolving arc engages the reader and sets aast pace The premise revolves around Logan and Hope two antastic characters whose innate loyalties often overrides their wants and needs This book is a mind blowing whirlwind to read as Ms Butcher goes in depth into multiple character storylines and POV s which I loved We don t see a lot of our previous heroes and heroines but we do get some staggering scenes with Sybil Joseph and meet some new characters that clues us into uture storylines that promise this series will continue to blow us awayHope is strong intelligent and street savvy Abandoned as a child she grew up on the streets She doesn t trust many and Logan s charm doesn t make him an instant good guy with her She has made a life or herself as an artist but never orgot where she came Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World from and spends time helping in the shelter where she was raised When she meets Logan she sees something in him that calls to her on a visceral level but she doesn t trust himLogan and his brother Tynan have spent hundreds of years the bearers of an cruel curse to bring together compatible mates that will ensure them a race of humans whose blood will keep them alive When Logan chances upon Hope he takes her blood and realizes that it is the ultimate essence and he will do anything to possess heror Project Lullaby As he spends time with her he begins to want her or himself even though he knows he cannot She must mate with a chosen But Logan doesn t take into account Hope s wants and needsHope is trying to ind her Dump Truck Trouble/Lets Build a Doghouse! friends that are missingrom the homeless shelter Logan makes a deal with her He will help her Sometime After Midnight find them if she agrees to testing and meeting potential mates While Logan pushes Hope towards accepting his offer Hope pushes back letting Logan know that manipulation and coercion isn t appreciated Is that how you live your life Counting the cost of your service to others so the debt can be repaid It only seemsair that if I help you you would offer me something in return Fair I see Thanks Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-By-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation--The Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions for your offer but no thanksI m not the kind of person who is willing to strike a deal with an asshole As Hope and Logan spend time together Hope does everything she can to understand his life and the war he is involved in She also makes it perfectly clear that while she can not be his peoples savior she can be hisThis story is rich in action and suspense The romance blends with well with the main conflict Sensual emotional love scenes are plentiful which I greatly appreciated We see realism in Hope and Logan s relationship The Sanguiner seem modern and less desperate acting than the Sentinels While it is in the Sanguiner s best interest toind compatible mates they use Machiavellian methods in obtaining what they want They don t employ the same hunterprey tactics as the Sentinels and the Slayers do I enjoyed the easy going and humorous banter between Logan and Hope He doesn t scare or intimidate her Are you saying he was trying to Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 fix me up with another guy After that chauvinistic assholeI m never trusting a Sanguiner s opinion of men again Ms Butcher continues to change up and expand on the arc to ensure no repetition or boredom What I truly love about Ms Butcher s books and hopes she never changes is her concept of good and evil She blurs the lines The Sentinels and the Sanguiner use nefarious means to achieve their goals as much as the Synestryns We see lines being crossed misconceptions capitalized on and actions being uestioned You never know till the end how it will all play outHer characters are rich in depth development and personality Ms Butcher imparts diversity and individualism into her character dialogue You are able to connect to them rather them just reading about them Each one is viable enoughor their own book Ms Butcher s style of writing intertwines new and old story lines in a way that doesn t leave you over whelmed by the sheer amount of knowledge she impartsThe ending is a mixture of explosive action School Dazed finger clenching tension and a mind blowing conclusion I honestly couldn t see how it would end in the way I wanted but Ms Butcher once again manages to achieve the impossible The Sentinel Wars continues to be one of myavorite series and I look orward to the next title and release date to be announcedRating A 5 StarsI read this September 5 2011 and re read February 5 2013This book is so interesting I loved it What a great seriesNotice the cover My riend Mello got me looking at it Interesting that all the books up to this point have been centered on Theronai Immortal Warriors and we see their back and chest up to their nosebut not their eyes But this book cover we see his whole Chinese Fairy Tales Fantasies: Folio Society Edition face on theirst book to center on a Sanguineir One of the Old Haunts five races of SentinelsWhere to start So much happened in this book It is centered on Logan a leader among the Sanguiner who has spent most of his life running Project Lullaby with Tynan another Sanguiner His race is starving because there is not enough strong blood out there Since his race are in alliance with Theronai the warriors and heal them and they share blood in exchangeit is pretty important toind new sources of strong blood Theronai do not trust the Sanguiner and basically have kept them starving by not sharing blood unless they need healing Project Lullaby secret planis their answer to this problem view spoilerThey are inding and matching up couples who are of strong blood and manipulating them into alling in loveencouraging them to have children with their promise to allow their children to share blood with the Sanginuer when they are of age In return they protect them make sure they have what They Want And Need want and need heal them Cooking for Company: All the Recipes You Need for Simple, Elegant Entertaining at Home from all disease hide spoiler The lead shiftsrom the Theroni warriors to the Sanguinar as the self sacrificing and a bit manipulative Logan takes the lead in this newest entry to Butcher s Sentinel WarsDespite the act please don t shoot me or this that I ve had a hard time keeping the Sanguinar straight as individuals I was really looking orward to this story shedding some light shed on the blood drinking Sanguinar Race and their secret project I ve always wondered why the Theroni warriors were so distrustful of and so unwilling to give warriors were so distrustful of and so unwilling to give blood to their Sanguinar allies especially in light of the act that those allies healing powers have come in handy so many times through out the seriesAfter getting a little ways into the story and armed with a little knowledge of the Sanguinar s struggle I just couldn t see how Logan was ever going to get a happily ever after with Hope a woman with uber yummy blood some not uite human powers and a big mental block in her head where her past should be and when I got to the the last Dîwana Jan few chapters I was afraid his story line was going to be continued and not wrapped up until the next book There did end up being closureor them here insert big sigh of relief her though it s sort of rushed On a side note about how the story was put together Logan s story does get most of the screen time but with a lot going on in Blood Hunt than just Logan and Hope often a scene between them would ramp up to an exciting point and then shift to another part of the story because as was the case in the last book Blood Hunt is an ensemble piece In addition to the main thread with Logan and Hope we briefly touch up with Caine and Sybil who is coping with the changes brought on by her mother s death and with Nika and Maddox but only in conjunction with Nika s completely damaged sister Tori We get a small bit with Jackie who is apparently every warrior s match but who wants no man and get just enough of the soulless Iain to make me hope that somehow there is a loophole or him in the uture There is also a new wrinkle added to the series as naked Slayers come a calling and the story has a ew other small bits with other characters woven in here and there However even with all those threads weaving through the story I was slightly disappointed that the ormerly paralyzed Torr and Grace the woman who sacrificed so that he could be whole. Hope appeared out of nowhere naked and alone a woman without a past The only thing she knows is that she is imbued with a strange power It's in her blood And two men want to posses it One.
