Book Review:  Hunted by Lorenz Font

Book Excerpt:

“There really isn’t a second scenario, we’re dead set and conceptually right about the first one.” Pritchard chuckled. Harrow hissed under his breath, unable to control his hunger any longer. “You need to feed. I know Tor rudely interrupted your dinner. Intel confirms that needle in your pocket, meant you’re not advocating the spread of the disease, am I right?”

Harrow shuddered before nodding. His could feel his strength fading and there wasn’t a damn thing he could do about it. This human, in all of his infinite wisdom, should give him his neck and be done with.

“I know what you’re thinking Harrow,” Pritchard laughed without humor. “I’m not the enemy here, or your dinner. I will take you to a cell for now, where you will be fed donated blood until we find a cure for that ailment.  Neither of you are prisoners here, but until we are certain that you’re not a threat to us humans, you will not be allowed to move around freely.”

Pritchard rose to his feet. “Follow me,” he told Harrow.

“What about these damn cuffs on our leg, we’re not animals you know.” Tor said and his voice thundered through the room.  He was already up on his feet and facing off with Lambert, who was sporting a push dagger, notably of Dangeran material.

“They are trackers, in case you are out there,” Lambert motioned with his hand. “We will know how to find you.”

“Just like we’re dogs, right?” Tor said distastefully.

“Yes, but very special dogs,” Lambert said, taunting as he grabbed Tor’s elbow and shoved him forward to follow Pritchard and Harrow.  They were already walking down the long corridor that eventually led them to a windowless suite. The furnishings were top-rated, lavish to be exact. There were two king-sized beds, a state of the art sound system sitting next to a giant television, expensive looking art adorned the wall, and plush carpeting to boot.

HUNTEDFRONTfinal

4 Stars!

Harrow Gates is living with a disease that has caused him to go on the run. He is hunted by both vampires and humans alike for fear that he may infect many more. Jordan (Just Jordan) is on the run as well. She is seeking revenge from the vampire who killed her parents and transformed her into one of them.  Little does Harrow know that he is being tracked by Pritchard Tack, a well known billionaire in desperate need of Harrow’s help.  When Harrow and Jordan learn about Pritchard’s mission, they commit to helping him find a cure for the other infected vampires including Pritchard’s daughter, Allison.  Harrow and Jordan also help to protect others from the leaders of the Vampire Council, Demetrius and Goran who feast on humans and are hell bent on procreating their lineage.  And although Harrow knows that he can never be close to Jordan without the risk of infecting her with his disease, he has hopelessly fallen in love with her.

This book was such a pleasant surprise for me, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did! First off, the main character, Harrow is a flawless depiction of a strong, valiant, intelligent and principled hero. The fact that he is troubled only helped contribute to the enigmatic  effect that he has on the story.  Lorenz Font has brilliantly created  a vampire you would love to love. Add in a headstrong but romantic heroine as well as a wonderful cast of characters from Pritchard and Allison to Tor and Cyrus, Lambert and Rohnert.  Vampires and humans all coexisting together with the same noble goals.  The banter between them was very entertaining and the premise of the story kept me engaged until the very end.

Lorenz Font’s book highlighted the essentiality of the human soul and the healing power of love. Whether it be the love of a father, of a brother, of a sister, friend or lover. Love can change things, can redeem hurt, can soften one’s heart.  Pritchard Tack thought that he had to work hard to convince Harrow to stay at his facility and help find a cure for Allison and the others. In the end, it was Pritchard who really saved Harrow and Jordan from living a life of anger and regret. For in each other, they found that the past can only help to strengthen their future. Leave it to me to put a romantic spin on a vampire story. Mission accomplished.

About the Author:  Meet Lorenz Font

Lorenz Font discovered her love of writing after reading a celebrated novel that inspired one idea after another. Hunted, the first book of The Gates Legacy trilogy, is her debut novel. Written in forty-five days, the grueling writing schedule was a personal challenge, even though she thought it was madness at first.

 She enjoys dabbling in different genres with an intense focus on angst and the redemption of flawed characters. Her fascination with romantic twists is a mainstay in all her stories.

 She currently lives in California with her husband, children, and two demanding dogs. Lorenz spends most of her free time writing while also working as a Business Office Manager for a skilled-rehabilitation hospital.
