    One thought on “The Huntress”

    1. Okay, I love Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, and even that weird cartoon movie that takes place in between the two live action ones. But there comes a point when it becomes just a leeeel'bit ridiculous when it's so blatantly obvious. I literally had to stop reading this in the middle because of the goggles. Seriously? The goggles? The goggles weren't even cool But you apparently loved the goggles, well, okay then. Could you write a fanfiction of the "Riddick" movie? Because *that* one pretty [...]

    2. There were definitely elements in this book that had me thinking "too fast" and "too aggressive". But the overall appeal had me reading this in one sitting. So even if there were things that would normally have me marking a book down (like kids. I hate kids in books), the fun factor took it all.I love how aggressive and baddass Mae is. I'm glad Seth got a nice swift kick in the ass. And I'm glad I didn't have to cringe at the kind of mother Mae was (you know, the overbearing, eat your veggies, d [...]

    3. "The Huntress" by Michelle O'Leary is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's an easy 5 stars!So many things make this stand out for me. 1) The Huntress, Mea, reminds me a bit of the comic book character Elektra; she's very attuned to the world around her with or without the benefit of light, and she's been trained by the best with all the right kick**s moves. She is also enhanced with extra strength scientifically. She's a tough, independent woman. Yet, she's also a woman with a hu [...]

    4. Well, I have to say this felt very fake - most of the dialogue in this book was artificial and the whole chasing after the guy was annoying.I liked the fact that Mea was a fighter and still a woman with maternal instincts, but she chased after the guy like an idiot.And he was such a basic animal with the whole fight or flight responses that it made me nuts. I felt like he had no higher functions of the brain.Sorry, not a fan.

    5. The Huntress--this was my first published novel, and I'll confess these characters are still my favorite. Mea is a kick-a$$ heroine with a wry sense of humor, and Stone is a troubled anti-hero looking for redemption. Regan still touches my heart as she provides the glue that holds these characters together. The proof that I haven't been able to walk away from their universe lies in the several short stories that have bloomed out of this novel, now in a collection called "Stepping Stones." Keep a [...]

    6. I didn't love this book as much as 'Angels and Ministers of Grace' but I could not put this one down. Mea and Bay were electric, and their story was an emotional roller coaster. Furthermore, Mea was simply awesome. I loved that throughout the story she kicked ass more times than I could count, and not just in fighting, but Bay didn't get a complex from it. There were no obnoxious prideful man-rants. 5 stars, can't wait to read the another one by O'Leary.

    7. Full review posted HERENot only full in action and thrill, it certainly offered a lot in the romance department. I’d say this book was quite jam-packed with everything. There were so many unique ideas here that are truly fascinating.

    8. I couldn't put this one down. I was completely drawn into the world and became attached to the characters. It's sci-fi, but it doesn't get bogged down in techie descriptions like so many others in this genre tend to. Highly recommended - great mix of adventure and romance.

    9. Let's get the obvious stuff out of the way. Inspired by Riddick? Yep. Very much so. Does it harm the story? Nope. Not if you don't linger on the fact. Read very well, did not pull punches, was blessedly not lingering in its depiction of the physical part - sex, gore, the works. Didn't make them feel cheap, obvious. Good read, memorable.

    10. A great bookLoved the book; funny, quirky, fast paced, with characters hat you will immediately fall in love with. I am so glad that the author is continuing their story, can't wait to see Mea, Stone, and Regan again

    11. This book looked very interesting at first, but once I read it, I was disappointed. There wasn't much of a plot at all and the whole book just didn't have a whole lot of world building or character development. I wish I could say that I enjoyed this book, but, sadly, it wasn't the book for me.
