My Review!

Rating: 4 stars!

*I received a copy of this from the author in exchange for an honest review. :)

I am loving this series so much, so when I heard about this little novella featuring one of Dralion's main warriors, I jumped on the chance to read it early! It was a nice little tie-over until the third book in Joanne Wadsworth's Magio-Earth series, Enchanter, is released in May 2014. 

Hunter was an adorable novella featuring some of the characters we've come to love and a new couple who realizes that they'd rather fight for the soul-bond they have with each other than let it go because they're enemies.

The main character, Lieska, is one of Dralion's warriors who lives on the station in Australia. She's one of Hope's best friends, and she's a hunter who's senses have caught onto one of Peacio's protectors. What she finds out is that he's her soul-bound mate, and she'll have to decide whether or not to release him from their bond.

But Cole won't give up that easily. He's a hunter too, a guy who likes danger and challenges, dares and a pretty warrior who makes him feel protective. He follows her to the station, not ready to give up on their soul-bond. After all, Hope and Silas, and Faith and Davio have been able to hide their relationships a secret and stay together. Cole and Lieska are both warriors who don't back down from a little danger. When Cole stays and helps Lieska and her friends battle against the brushfires to save their livestock, Lieska decides that she can't let him go. As long as they have each other, they'll figure it out.

I loved the humorous and sweet relationship between Cole and Lieska. Although a short novella, I still felt like I could connect with the characters, and I loved seeing Hope and Silas again. This series has quickly become a favorite, and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the characters! Can their soul-bonds with each other bring their two countries peace? :)
