Marika Korzha tells the Englishman what he wants to hear. She will hunt down the vampire known as Bishop and turn the monster over to him. But not before she questions the fiend about the whereabouts of another, known as Saint. She has spent most of her life looking for Saint, the one who killed her mother and left her own blood tainted.

Bishop never thought he would return to his homeland. After the uprising that killed his beloved Elisabetta, he vowed to leave Romania forever. Now he has returned, searching for the Huntress, hoping to stop her massacre of otherworldly creatures. She kills without knowing what she is hunting, kills under the assumption that because they are different they must be evil. She must be stopped.

Author Kathryn Smith continues her Blood Grail series with Night of the Huntress. Marika believes that all vampires are evil creatures who must be destroyed, and yet she is half-vampire herself. Bishop believes that she is responsible for the deaths of innocent people and must be held accountable. Neither one is prepared for the truth.

I enjoyed reading this book, but will not put it on the same level as some other paranormal romance series. The characters are just not compelling enough, nor is the action sharp enough, to keep readers on the edge of their seats. It is a good solid read, however, and Ms. Smith is doing a fine job of staying within the boundaries of the world she has created. Night of the Huntress is a book fans of paranormal romance can enjoy.
