Review: Hunted (Brides of the Kindred #2) by Evangeline Anderson
Hunted - Evangeline Anderson

 Brides of the Kindred #2
 Evangeline Anderson
 Erotic Science Fiction Romance
 E. A. Publishing
 April 29th 2011


A desperate girl on the run with nowhere to hide... A warrior who has made a vow never to claim a bride... Sophia Waterhouse is being Hunted and the only man who can save her is the one she fears the most...


Sophia Waterhouse has always been afraid of needles and vampires so there’s no way she wants anything to do with a modern day Count Dracula—even if he does come wrapped in the package of a huge Kindred warrior with blond hair and ice blue eyes. She’s only on the Kindred Mothership to participate in her sister Liv’s wedding and that’s all.


Sylvan is a Tranq Kindred who has made a sacred vow never to call a bride. After a devastating rejection on his home planet, his heart is a block of ice no one can melt—or so he thinks until he meets Sophia.


When their ship is forced down in the middle of a rugged mountain range Sophia and Sylvan are stranded. Running for their lives they have only each other to depend on. Will they give in to the intense attraction between them or will the evil hunting Sophia take its toll? You’ll have to read Brides of the Kindred Book 2—Hunted to find out.




Barnes & Noble




Hunted is book two in the Brides of the Kindred series by Evangeline Anderson.


I like to give a series a two or three book try before I say I’m going to stop. Hunted was not my cup of tea. I was hoping for something different and sadly I was disappointed. You may wonder why did I read the whole book well the only reason I read Hunted to the end was to get the set-up story for our next couple which are featured in, book three, Sought.


Sophia was a very disappointing heroine. She was feisty and opinionated in book one, Claimed, but here in her book she becomes a simpering damsel that was determined not to see the truth in front of her. She’s incredibly damaged and is afraid of needles (due to all the transfusions she had as a child), so to pair her up with a Blood Kindred aka Vampire. Ya, that’s not going to go over well! She was such a depressing character that it kept me down and depressed throughout this novel. 


Sylvan is a Kindred Warrior who’s made a sacred vow never to call a bride; because of a devastating rejection on his home planet. Then he meets Sophia and now he’s torn. I liked Sylvan. He was interesting and I liked getting to learn about the Blood Kindred race.


As for the romance. It took this couple FOREVER to get together and it took a total stranger to got Sophia to understand that having a Blood Kindred bit her is not going to hurt even thou Sylvan has told her this too and she’s seen first hand her own sisters experience. Let me also point out that Sophias had a traumatic sexual experience; besides being afraid of needles, so really can the author make her anymore opposite of wanting her Kindred? Sophia was just so annoying! I get their where traumatic things in her past preventing them from moving on and committing, but man did the author drag this on longer then necessary. And, last when she’s about to die, she realizes she CAN’T LIVE without Sylvan and magically everything is perfect. Eh!!


The only reason I read this novel to the end was the secondary story weaved into Hunted. I like how the author weaves these into her story. She did with Claimed and again here. We get the setup for our next couple which is going to be a menage with Kat, Locks Hard and Stabs Deep. I love the Twin Kindred and their different personalities are interesting. The chemistry between these three is already fantastic. I can’t wait to see how it grows and what surprises are in store for them. 


Hunted was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 


Rated: 1.5 Star

Review: Claimed (Brides of the Kindred #1) by Evangeline Anderson
Claimed - Evangeline Anderson

Brides of the Kindred Book One—Claimed


Olivia Waterhouse has just graduated from nursing school and has her whole life ahead of her—until she gets drafted. Problem is, she isn’t being forced into the Army, she’s been chosen as a Kindred bride.


The Kindred are huge alien warriors—a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male. After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward—the right to find brides among the population. The chances of being chosen are about the same as those of winning the lottery—guess it’s just Liv’s lucky day.


Baird is a Beast Kindred who recently escaped imprisonment and torture at the hands of the malevolent Scourge. Through the torment and pain only one thing kept him sane—the thought of finding and claiming his bride—Olivia. His need to possess her is a burning intensity that threatens to consume them both.


Angry at having her future and her family taken away from her, Liv vows to fight back the only way she can—by resisting. She has one month on the Kindred Mothership with Baird—their claiming period. If she can keep from having bonding sex with him during that time, she can go home and get on with her life on Earth.


But Baird isn’t going to make it easy for her. Every week he is allowed to touch Liv more and more intimately and according to the contract she signed, she has to let him. She’s determined to resist him but his touch sets her on fire. And just as she thinks she knows what she wants, a twist of fate and an attack by the faceless Scourge AllFather changes everything…


More about the Brides of the Kindred series
A race of Genetic Traders from beyond the stars
Three very different types of men

All looking for one thing…their brides


Beast Kindred—Savage in battle these dark, brooding warriors from Rageron bring their passion and intensity to the bedroom. They possess a very special endowment that ensures every sexual experience is a tantric one.


Blood Kindred—Cold as ice to their enemies, these tall, blond warriors from Tranq Prime warm up when they find the right woman. But be careful…they bite.


Twin Kindred—Muscular and rugged, these warriors from Twin Moons always come in pairs and cannot be separated. They experience physical pain when parted from each other…or the one woman they both choose to love.


And then there is the enemy…


The Scourge—A genetic trade gone wrong, these menacing outsiders have twisted desires and sexual needs fierce enough to frighten away even the most adventurous. Their need to dominate and possess their women completely has led to a strange prophesy that they must fulfill…or die trying.






Claimed is book one in the Brides of the Kindred series by Evangeline Anderson.


Anderson has created a unique and interesting world. The detailed description of the different Kindred races gave me an understand of who they are and what their expectations are for their bond mates.


Baird is a Beast Kindred. The biggest and baddest. His need for Olivia was great, but he did what he could to keep himself from rushing her into the relationship.


Olivia is a human who finds herself a Kindred bride whether she wants to or not. She isn’t my favorite. She was prudish at times and redundant. Her resistant to Baird was frustrating. 


Baird and Olivia’s romance was ok. Their time together was stressful. I related to Baird’s frustration and found it completely understandable. I liked how he showered Olivia with attention and put so much effort into wooing her. As for Olivia her resistance was very frustrating. She tried too hard on the resistant front. The sex is steamy and hot. 


The plot is thin. The villains are perfect. Very villainous. The Scourge are our evil race. The AllFather makes a great antagonist. I wouldn’t want to go through his special brand of torture.


I enjoyed the secondary characters introduced. I liked getting their perspectives. I very much enjoyed how the author weaves in the story/set up for the next couple.


Claimed was an ok read, but not one I’d read again.


Rated: 3 Stars

Book Review: Lock and Key (Nocturne Academy #1) By Evangeline Anderson
Lock and Key - Evangeline Anderson


*Trigger warning

This novel mentions and goes into detail about cutting.

(spoiler show)



This book was a journey that started out frustrating and ended with a bang! I'm so glad I pushed through because I would have missed out on a fantastic story.


Megan had a not so great life after the death of a family member and eventually getting passed onto her aunt didn't help where she was at mentally. I found her naiveté and her denseness very frustrating in the beginning of the novel but it was understandable to a degree. It didn't help things when her classes didn't answer any questions outright and no adult would inform her of what her situation with magic was. It took over 10 chapters for information to start floating in and even then it was a very slow trickle. 

She also ended up being this all-powerful witch that didn't require training and that kind of bothered me a little towards the end.

(spoiler show)


Griffin was great overall, though the way Megan dismissed why he was in the circumstances that he was in was troublesome, to say the least. He was overall a sarcastic and lovable guy with a dark and protective streak that would pop up here and there. I liked how communicative he was with Megan after things got serious between them. Though his age was never confirmed it made me feel kind of icky when Megan confirmed she was only 16 and I didn't know how much older he was than her.


Now onto what bothered me throughout this story: The overall pacing. This novel started off slower than I usually like. It took over 20 chapters to finish her first day at this new school. There were things that were mentioned with detail that didn't necessarily have to be there. There were moments when things got-going and they were fantastic until everything slowed down again. I understand this issue is a personal preference of mine but I can't help how it detracted from the story for me. Also having a glossary of terms would have been very helpful throughout the book.


The ending tied everything together and it was incredible! It was action-packed, fast-paced and magical *wink wink*. It made everything the author had set up in chapters past worth it. It also set up the next novel for this series which I'm still on the fence about. 


My Favorite Quotes:


"People are so impressionable, they can die of imagination."

"Nobody can make you feel inferior unless you let them."

"And I wish, most of all, to protect you, no matter the consequences."

The Covenant - Evangeline Anderson

Kaitlyn is a witch and an S.E. (Special Enforcer) in charge of the paranormal cases in her area. When a local vampire, Summer, kills an innocent man and is captured on tape, it seems an open and shut case to bring him down. 


But the simple case turns complicated as there's a witch serial killer on the loose and it seems that Summer is not all he seems to be. Could it be that Summer might have the answer to exactly what is threatening all the witches? And why does Summer affect her so? 


Of course he's gorgeous and irresistible, but a witch and a vampire mating is totally against the rules, right? Then if it's so wrong, why does Summer's touch feel so right? Can Kaitlyn survive long enough to find out or will the witch serial killer get her, too?
