In the near distant future where humanity is at its end. The world has been taken over by a war between Vampires and the Hunters. In Token Huntress, there is a combination of action, vampires, and romance that will keep the story movie as you read it.
The Token Huntress takes in the future where humans are scare and the world is taken over but three races of vampires. The Council which is made up of civilized Vampires, vampires that do what they please, and Sabers. Sabers who are beyond saving. In order to protect humans, there are THe Hunters. A race that is part human part Vampire with strong abilities and evenly matches to vampires. They fight to protect humanity from them and vow to fight vampires.
In the book, the story focuses on Esmore who is known as the Token Huntress. Her duty is to lead her guild and to fight all vampire and protect humans and the world. But unlike her hunters, she is born without a gift and has dark eyes. Despite not having a gift. She is a force to reckon because she is the strongest fighter and can outwit vampires. Things take a turn, Esmore meets a mysterious vampire that wakes a darkness within her. Throughout the book, she must discover the reason behind this darkness if she wants to save her kind of vampires. But will the mysterious vampire be a step in the way?
This book is exciting. When I was reading it I couldn’t put it down. I read it like in two days and just want more from it because it was so good. There is action, a strong female characters, a hot romance and just lots of fighting scenes that held my attention. At first, when I learned that it was a vampire book I expected a typical urban fantasy vampire book but this was totally fresh. I think the end of humanity idea where humans are close to extinction, a world taken over by vampires and hunters at war with them gave it a fresh interesting take on this world. I also like the way the author built the world and history and lets you know why the world is this way and helped paint the picture. As for the main character Esmore, I think she is a strong bad ass. She can fight and doesn’t rely on special abilities except for her skills when it comes to a bow and sword. I actually can’t wait to see what comes next and see how the story continues.
