If vampires were ever thought of as the undead and emotionless, then this book has one clan of vampires that defy traditional stereotypes. The reader will find every emotion under cover of darkness within these pages; fear, anger, suspense, tantrums, moodiness, horror and those all pleasurable sexual emotions. Author Katie Salidas has made Hunters & Prey a page turner from the first to the last page and she has left the reader in anticipation for the third book in the Immortalis series.
Hunters & Prey is the second book in the Immortalis series and continues the story of Alyssa being turned into a vampire. Welcomed back are the set of main characters from Immortalis; Carpe Noctem, Lydander, Nicolas and his mate Rosalyn, and a few other secondary characters that give just as much flavor to the novel as the others. Lysander and Nicolas are the mature males that have endured thousands of years of survival against the evil that hunts them. Rosalyn is the sweet loving female character that continues to mother Alyssa and provide some much needed common sense in those moments of heated arguments.
The characters in Hunters & Prey must fight for survival for both human and vampire. Fighting against an evil greater than the mob which Las Vegas is known for and much more wicked than their own kind, the clan must band together against this evil to ensure their survival. Alyssa must defy her clan in order to save her life once again. Her defiance of vampire law doesn’t sit well with the clan and must be dealt with accordingly.
About the Book
Becoming a vampire saved Alyssa from death, but the price was high: the loss of everything and everyone attached to her mortal life. She’s still learning to cope when a surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the friend she’s missed more than anything.
Alyssa breaks vampire law by revealing her new, true self to her old friend, a fact which causes strong division in the group that should support her most: her clan.
Worse yet, her revelation entangles Fallon in the struggle between vampires and hunters and The Acta Sanctorum is ready to attack again, with a new army of hybrid creations: the Frenzy Soldiers.
If Alyssa hopes to survive and keep her mortal friend safe, she’ll have to be willing to make a deal with the enemy, and regain her clan’s support. It will take everyone working together in a precarious truce to fight against the Acta Sanctorum’s new threat.

About the Author
Author of the hot new Urban Fantasy series, Immortalis, Katie has always had a desire to entertain. Since, early childhood, she’s dreamed up fantastical characters and scribbled them into pages of various journals and notebooks. Taking an interest in vampires at an early age, she devoured every book, featuring those mysterious, blood sucking creatures, in any genre she could find. She claims that, of all the monsters out there, vampires had always been the most interesting.
It was only natural that a love of reading about vampires, and a love of writing, turned into a desire to write her own stories. A Las Vegas native, having grown up in the famed City of Sin, Katie loves to feature it as a recurring setting for many of her stories.
Salidas creates the characters and the story line that provide for an intriguing and exciting novel. Not sense the television shows of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003) have I so enjoyed reading about vampires. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
