Knight of the Hunted Review (Born Vampire #1)

Knight of the Hunted (Born Vampire #1)For four hundred years Lisbeth followed the rules without question. She broke them to save a child.
With Vampire hunters at her heels, she was forced to flee her home. She ran until starving and lost, she stumbled upon a Lycan named Knight. A reluctant savior, honor-bound to protect her.
Then they were discovered by a sinister vampire named James who wants Lisbeth for his own. His power and cruelty were overwhelming.
The only thing more dangerous than Lisbeth and Knight’s captor is the one thing that might save them both.

This book put a new spin on the usual vampire tropes that I had read in previous novels. Instead of vampires always being created, there were two classes of vampires. The vampires who were born were considered purebloods and were able to have certain jobs that other vampires could not have. They were considered the first-class citizens of vampire society. The vampires who were created from humans were the second-class vampires. They were not as strong as the born vampires and were not allowed to hold certain positions in the society. Then there are the werewolves. The werewolves and vampires are sworn enemies and they have rules about what to do with those enemies.

All of these details make up a very intricate universe with a lot of its own history and stories that could be told. Sure, I loved reading about Lisbeth’s story, but this universe is so large that I hope the series delves into it further as the books continue. I want to learn more about how the Lycans and vampires came to hate each other, and I definitely want to see if the turned vampires are going to stay happy as second-class citizens. These could definitely make for interesting story arcs!

Back to the actual story now. I love Lisbeth and Knight’s relationship so much! Rarely do I find the “forbidden love” trope to be exciting anymore, but this one was different. I found myself drawn in, rooting for them, and trying to figure out ways that the two could stay together. They simply seemed perfect for each other, and without too much of that “hate to love” annoying dialogue.

This book drew me in and refused to let me go, I loved every minute of reading it. The plot moves smoothly, there aren’t any of those horrible POV switches that I can remember, every character was unique, and the world truly took the story of vampires vs. werewolves and made it its own. I have nothing bad to say about this book!

I would recommend this series to lovers of YA fantasy/romance novels or anyone looking for a new series with a vampires vs. werewolves main plot.

I received a copy of this book and this is my voluntary review.

Overall Rating: 6 out of 5 stars
