Review: Vampire Hunt ( book number 3 of Kiera Hudson Series) INTERVIEW with Tim O’Rourke and GIVEAWAY.

Vampire Hunt
                      by Tim O’Rourke


In search of Kayla and on the run, Kiera and her friends make a race against time across the Cumbria Mountains. With the vampires predicting their every move, the trust amongst Kiera and her friends starts to fade.

From the desolate monastery set high between the mountains, the mysterious lake and the caves beneath the fountain, Kiera must discover the connection between the vampires and her mother, Isidor and Kayla, and resolve her inner feelings for Potter and Luke.

Kiera herself has started to change and this frightens her. So turning to her friends for help, she realises that it is only her mother who can provide the truth. But Kiera has other questions that she needs to have answered. Why did Isidor murder an innocent girl? Who is the person that Murphy has been meeting in secret? But above all, why have they put their lives and trust in the hands of a serial killer?


****************************************************
 Spoilers:


-> Hiding from cops, vampyrus and vampires, Kiera, Luke, Potter and *sniff* Muryphy, must keep looking for Kayla. As they are having bad times, the trust between them is fiding, and even me (reader) was confused at some point, ’cause I didn’t knew whom to trust! Good thing is she’s not bleeding anymore when she has visions. But now that she knows she’s a Half Vampyrus and Half Human, Isidor and Kiera had together a dream: “She’s being kept in the darkened room at the end of a long corridor. She’s in a bed and calling out for us to help her.”


Even worst. Kiera doesn’t know why her mother is in the news with Phillips. Is it Murphy the one betraying them? Who’s the one that he talks to? … Lycans… and she’s having another dream were her mother offers her a bloody meat and she has to eat that….


The story of the Lycanthtope:


“They’ve been around for centuries. They are what we would nowadays call serial killers- because that’s what they were. Although they were human back then, they had the power of putting you into a trance with just one stare. That’s how they overcome their victims before ripping them to pieces- leaving them butchered and half-eaten. But worse than that, they stole children.”


“Children?” I asked. “Why?”


” They believed that the purity of a child’s heart would give them unnaturally long lives, and some even believed immortality. But the speel wouldn’t work unless the children were offered to them by the mothers to take. But what mother would just hand over her child? So they would creep into their homes in the dead of night, and waking the mothers and placing them into a trance with their stare, they would trick them into handing over their children. It wasn’t until one night that one of these killers was stumbled upon by the chance as he fled the home of a distraught mother. She had come out of her trance too early and raised the alarm. The Lycanthrope were hunted down by the men of the village and murdered. But myth and legend has it that they were turned away in death by God because of the horrendous crimes they had commited and he cursed them with a divin punishment. He sent them back to Earth, each of thm with a raging thirst as he was so angry with them, he wouldn’t give them not even one drop of water. He told them that to quench their thirsts they had to drink the rainwater from th first animal footprint that they came across. It was a wolf’s footprint swollen with rainwater that they drank from. Lik they had tricked all those mothers before, thy too had been deceived. For what thy hadn’t ben told, was that whatver animal’s footprint they drank from, they would spent the rest of eternity walking the Earth half-human and half that animal- and in their cas- wolves.”

          Isidor story:

” My mother and father are Lady and Lord Hunt just like Kayla’s. As far as I’ve been told, my mother had a terrible tim carrying me as an unborn child. She was sick constantly and spent most of her time in bed at Hallowed Manor”……..”So one day, when my mother was scraming in pain, they gave her a sedative to calm her, and Doc Ravenwood used that x-ray-thingy to take a peek at me inside of her”
..” Anyway, what they saw terrified my father, for even as a fetus I had my wings. Nothing like this had ever been seen before. Most half-brds didn’t start their change until adolescence and as we know, that change killed them. But there I was, inside my mother’s womb, already looking like a Vampyrus.

* Also it was this traitor Sparky that told Isidor that his “mom” was actually his aunt.

          Fountain of Souls:

” The Vampyrus believe that it is God taking back the blood shed by the Lycanthrope. Absorbing the pain of the Lycanthrope’s victims”….. ( the water is red)

* When Kira was so scared when the Lycans were coming and when she was in the water, she thought it was someone who had save her… but it was her wings. (page 2217 in ebooks *-*)

Where the Lycans lived it was in a mountain and their houses looked like red rocks and also there were two different things… they were glaciers! and the Lycan Seth and they call them Twins and they don’t melt.

….. Now for the most HORRIBLE thing ever:

” Phillips sprang forward and drove his fist into Murphy’s chest. In one quick and fluid movement, Phillips had yanked his fist put again and was holding Murphy’s heart between his fingers. It was so sudden and so quick, that Murphy glanced down at the gaping hole in his chest, then in shock he stared at his heart which still pumped even though Phillip clenched it in his fist.”

Sorry for cursing but… FUCK YOU PHILLIP! 😉 much better.

********************************************
The last page: ” Closing my eyes, I lunged forward and sunk my teeth into the flesh that dripped from between her fingers..” Nooooooooooooo!
********************************************

Characters:

Jack Seth-> Lycan. He was around seven feet tall. His face had many white scars and his jaw line was covered in untidy-looking whiskers, his jet-black eyebrows met at the bridge of his long, crooking nose. His ears were st too low on each sid of his face, tucked just bhind his jaw and he was unnaturally thin.

Eloisa-> The lover of Seth. Her hair was white-blond and hung down over her shoulders. She was tin but had a good figure. Her eyes were bright yellow with two black slits for pupils, and her lips were full and blood red.

Sparky-> Yes we know our pizza face traitor but he’s a lycan as well…

Vampire Hunt (Kiera Hudson Series, #3)
5/5! LOVED IT.

          Interview with Tim O’ Rourke

1) What do you prefer, vampires or werewolves? And why?
I think I prefer Vampires. I like the whole idea that they are immortal. Vampires are mostly beautiful too – so that helps. I do like werewolves. I like the whole shapeshift thing that they do. Wolves are beautiful creatures and very graceful so I think that Vampires and Werewolves compliment each other very well.

2) Is there any other new creature that you are going to add in this series? ‘Cause you took me by surprise with the werewolves in book #3.

I won’t be introducing any new creatures into this series – but Kiera will go on to have further adventures in a new series that will be coming out next year. I don’t want to give too much away but I’ll be doing a different take on zombies – so that should be a lot of fun. Kiera and zombies – I’m already looking forward to writing it.

(ME) I SO want to see Kiera and zombies!
3) Can you tell us something in the coming soon book 4? And of course do you have the day when it’s going to sold?
We learn a lot more about the invisible man that everyone talks about and I introduce some new characters. 
The book will be out on the 10th of December 2011 which will be followed by book five “Vampire Hollows” in January 2012.
