REVIEW & GIVEAWAY The Soul's Mark: HUNTED by Ashley Stoyanoff

First off, if you haven't read the first book (The Soul's Mark: FOUND) yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING for? Go read it! If you’re interested in reading my review you can find it here
I wanted to say how terribly sorry I am that this post is a day late, I have been having computer problems. (But to make up for the delay I added an extra day to the giveaway) I also wanted to give my sincere thanks to Ashley Stoyanoff for not only giving me the opportunity to read The Soul's Mark: HUNTED in advance but for also for the giveaways!

 GoodReads Summary:
When Amelia Caldwell learned that she was marked by a vampire’s soul, she did what any smart, self-preserving person would have done: tried to run. But thanks to the soulmate bond that tethered her mentally and emotionally to her vampire soulmate, Mitchell Lang, running was not an option and finding out she was a witch didn’t make her life any easier. 

Now, Amelia has made peace with her new supernatural life and accepted her destiny with Mitchell, one of the most powerful vampires in the world. They are finally getting along but Amelia is sure he is hiding something—something big.

Little does she know that this is just the calm before the storm. When Mitchell’s former flame resurfaces and Eric’s dreams become distorted visions of his soulmate, hostility and tension threatens to tear their world apart.

Just when Amelia thinks life couldn’t get any crazier, vampires and humans start turning up dead. The killer—something more sinister and haunting than your run of the mill psychopath —is heading straight for their front door.

My Review:

I was so excited to read The Soul’s Mark: HUNTED that the wait for it just about killed me! Once I received it, I spent the greater part of an hour skipping up and down my hallway while screaming for joy. (I am pretty positive my neighbors think I am a nut job) I am pleased to say that the book exceeded all my expectations!  A splendid sequel that totally lived up to the first novel! 

Ashley Stoyanoff has the ability to bring her characters and plot to life. Her writing flows flawlessly and feels realistic, making it hard to put down! I was able to visually picture every scenario, it almost felt like watching television. Absolutely mind-blowing, may I add.

What I enjoyed most was the development of Amelia and Mitchell. I have such a connection with them, I feel like I have known them forever. They both matured a great deal and finally seem to fully understand each other. I adore their relationship, even when it hits a bit of turbulence. I am utterly in love with Eric and really loved reading more about him this time around. I was also delighted that this book provided more details about the soulmate bond. I honestly wish humans could experience it! 

This book took my every emotion by storm, it honestly exhausted me. (Not in a bad way) The action scenes had me at the edge of my seat with an ending that shocked me. I seriously had a hard time coping with what happened and wanted to curl up in a dark corner and sob uncontrollably.  A definite first for me! I NEED the next book in this series; the suspense is agonizing!
