He killed her lover, and for that crime and many others, Two Majors cut off the vampire Abraham’s head, reduced his remains to ashes, and scattered them to the winds. Now each night she wanders New York, freed from the chains of heroin addiction but longing still for Theroen’s kiss, the taste of blood on his lips, the echo of his thoughts in her ears.
There are other vampi He killed her lover, and for that crime and many others, Two Majors cut off the vampire Abraham’s head, reduced his remains to ashes, and scattered them to the winds.
There are other vampires out there; she knows it, and so she hunts. Tori Perrault spent a dozen years living in the woods, stalking her prey in the dark and killing without mercy.
Now, she too has returned to humanity, and struggles to come to terms with all that has happened. Her parents’ love smothers her and life seems empty. She spends her nights in the bottle, and in the company of strange men. She doesn’t know that she is watched, until the fragile life she has rebuilt is torn from her and she is dropped suddenly into a world she never knew existed.
Rhes Thompson and Sarah Taylor have never met a vampire, and never want to. All they want is to help their friend Two, who falls further away from them with each passing day. They have all but given up when they are thrust into a world of madness, death, and vampire politics beyond their understanding.
They must abandon their concern for Two, and worry instead about saving their own lives. Nearly twice as long as the first novel, Blood Hunt weaves together the stories of Two, Tori, Rhes and Sarah, along with a large cast of characters both old and new, as they attempt to navigate their way through the difficulties they face.

Since I am married to the author, I cannot pretend to be at all objective, though I will try… but I hope this helps people form an idea about Blood Huntthe follow-up to The Blood that Bondsand what they can expect from it.
Two and Tori have been rescued from the grip of the elder Abraham, but they have lost much in the process — Two lost the man she loved, and Tori years of her life. Returned to humanity, both women try to cope with their new situation. Each in her own way is having a hard time fitting in, or even knowing if fitting in is what she wants.
Blood Hunt is a much more ambitious book than The Blood that Bonds in that its vampire universe gets fleshed out a lot more than previously, which was a major attraction for me. Freed from the shackles of the blood craze Tori and from both addiction and fairy-tale love Twothe two women must make their own decisions.
Someone else commented that the story was a good balance of fantasy it is a vampire story after all! The book is definitely on the entertaining side of what I read, and it is really really good at precisely that — being fun without being totally mindless.

After reading Blood Hunt, I now feel a lot better about how the first book ended and know now why it had to end the way it did. Blood Hunt was longer than The Blood that Bonds, which allowed for a lot more in depth description of vampire history and politics. It also allowed for more character development and the introduction of some more key characters. This brought you a lot closer to the main characters and help you understand a bit more of where they were coming from.
Actually, through most of the book she was still suffering, along with most of the other characters. There were some light and happy moments though, just enough to keep the reader from becoming totally bogged down. Several things that Chris did with Blood Hunt kept things interesting. At first this bothered me, but once I started reading and saw how the parts eventually wove together, I realized it was actually a very effective way to approach the scenes.
The Children of the Sun is sure to be another emotional ride for Two and the rest of her friends. Jul 21, Shelly rated it it was amazing. I’ve never written a review before, so I’ll keep this short and.
Like many, I’ve waited a long time time for Blood Hunt, and I must say that I was certainly not disappointed! I practically devoured this book in 36 hours, and, despite it being much longer than The Blood That Bonds, I was left wanting much, much more!

Buecheler, on what is a superb 2nd book to your trilogy. I’m not sure how I can wait another year-and-a-bit until the last installment! Absolutely fantasti I’ve never written a review before, so I’ll keep this short and.
Sep 01, Jeana Green rated it it was amazing. I couldn’t put this book down and now that I have finished it I want to read it again. Bloood of chaos in a good way. Exciting from the beginning to the end. Left me wanting more.
How will I ever be able to wait for the third book??? As bad as I want to share more about this book it will absolutely spoil it so I must keep my thoughts to myself. All I need to say is: Thank you Chris for another book well done!! Jun 17, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: That was such a good story and I love Two’s story Dec 06, Emme rated it really liked it. I was hungry for more vampire stories, after building my mostly-defunct career around being a “Twilight Librarian” hey, if it got kids reading I was all for it Blood that Bonds had an atypical heroine in Two Majors– she was a heroin addict whose prostitution brings her in contact with vampire Theroen.
I fell in love with the scrappy Two though her name drove me crazy I kept reading it and thinking, “two whats? Blood that Bonds ended all too quickly and I was definitely wanting more. I immediately sought out Buecheler’s website so I could see when the sequel to Blood would debut and was dismayed to find out that Buecheler was taking his sweet time with the next installment. How dare he not hurry through his work so that I could get my fix! I went on to other vampires of various sorts, but Two was always in my back of my mind.
Let me tell ya– it was worth the wait! Long-suffering Two was back, and this time we learn more about her through the vampire world– and the friends she has tried to leave behind.
Let me get to what I loved about Blood Hunt. I love vampire lore and I really like how Buecheler bends the rules of the typical vampire story. Buecheler takes us to new places with Two, who has mostly reverted to her formerly-human self. Two seeks a return to the “life” by seeking out a bloodsucker that would bring her back into the vampiric fold. This is where my second love in this book comes in– vampire politics. Ah, if only a vampire would run for the Republican nomination now that we’ve lost both Donald Trump and Herman Cain in next year’s election!
I’m convinced that Obama is a zombie– so having a vampire enter the race would make this all the more interesting. But back to Blood Hunt. I like that we get to find out about the vampire caste system here, and Buecheler does a splendid job of establishing the various vampire worldviews.
Abraham, the big baddie from BtB is ever-present in the decisions the American vampire council must grapple with, and we get to meet the movers-and-shakers– namely, Naomi, Jakob, Malik and Stephen who provides an outsider-insider’s view.
The little anarchist in me was thrilled that there were dissidents– I was mildly sympathetic to the plight of the Burilgi, but per usual, their leader is batshit crazy but hey, that’s way of subalterns, no?
Ah, now we come to the characters. This is where Blood Hunt shines for me. My love of Two grew in this one, but then she does fulfill all my spunky girlcrush needs.
I love that we got more of Rhes, Sarah and Molly in this one, too. I especially like how Sarah speaks her mind and how we are brought into her pain over her blindness. Sarah’s contribution to the captives finding their way out of the Burilgi mess? Love that she was essential and not just a victim because of her “disability. If dire circumstances don’t solidify your union, nothing will, and boy, do Rhes and Sarah find themselves in a case of the dires!
