Token Huntress by Kia Carrington-Russell is a futuristic paranormal romance. It’s the year 2341 and the sun's light has long since dimmed. Vampires thrive and stalk the world and a new society rules, a society of vampires, supernatural hunters, and the few humans that are left to fight over. Esmore is a Token Huntress and, at just 18 years old, she is a fearless team leader, pursuing the enemy with no let-up. Esmore has a problem, though, she can’t repress the feelings that grow inside of her. She is being pressured into a marriage she doesn’t want, and when she gives in to a vampire that she just can’t keep away from, reality takes a different turn, an evil and lustful turn. Life – or death – may never be the same again!
Token Huntress by Kia Carrington-Russell is definitely not a story for the faint hearted, nor is it one for under 18’s, given the descriptive nature of the sexual scenes. This story intrigued me; most vampire stories follow the same pattern but, teamed up with a paranormal twist and set in the future as well, this was something quite different. It started well and it just got better! The characters are developed so realistically that you could almost believe that you know them, that these people walk the earth with you, although given what they are, you most likely wouldn’t want that! The plot is full of action, romance, tears and rage, and it stalks along as relentlessly as the Huntress does. The book flowed naturally and I was a little disappointed when it ended – because I wasn’t ready for it to end. Is there going to be more? I truly hope so!
