Wild Hunt (Silhouette Nocturne)
Author- Lori Devoti
Back Cover Blurb
Alongside his hellhound brethren, Venge Leidolf was summoned to start the Wild Hunt anew. But in this dreaded pursuit of souls, Venge sought to free himself from his infernal bondage—by claiming the heart of a fierce Valkyrie.…
Geysa never questioned the alluring gifts that set her apart from the other Valkyries, or her hatred of hellhounds—until Venge fell under her spell. Drawing the alpha hellhound so close made Geysa doubt her every instinct. To stop the Hunt, the two blood-born enemies would need to cast aside old vows and allegiances. Only then could no one question the strength of their union….
Venge Leidolf is a hellhound who is consumed with finding the horn that the ErlKing had used to control the hellhounds. He is driven by revenge to find the horn and is determined to let nothing stand in his way. When he follows the call of the horn, he encounters Geysa, a Valkyrie and is immediately drawn to her. Geysa and her sister Valkyries are equally determined to find the horn and she instructed to get close to Venge in order to find the horn. The attraction between Venge and Geysa is undeniable and even though they are enemies they can’t resist giving into their passion. As they pursue the elusive horn, strong wills collide and in the end they must overcome many obstacles that stand in the way of their love.
Ms. Devoti does an excellent job of world building and provides a unique cast of characters that hold the interest of the reader. I was intrigued to know more about hellhounds, Valkyries and the Norn. I thoroughly enjoyed Venge and Geysa’s story and look forward to Ms. Devoti’s next books.
Wild Hunt is the third book in Lori Devoti’s Unbound series. Preceding books in the series are Unbound and Guardian’s Keep.
