    Neko is a hunter she get's paid for her work, but even though she's off the clock she has to stop the Lapsed ones. Which is exactly how she caught the attention of a dragon she saved him from a Lapsed one at least she thought she was. Neko can't deny there was something about the shifter stranger, and when she is hired to assassinate the Kindred leader of the dragons she has a feeling that it might just be the same stranger. Neko isn't a killer, but for the right price will she change who she is Neko is a hunter she get's paid for her work, but even though she's off the clock she has to stop the Lapsed ones.

Neko isn't a killer, but for the right price will she change who she is and kill the man she only saved days before? I like Neko she's a knife-wielding bad-ass, who's special gifts make her able to see the Lapsed ones and protect the innocent shifters. I wasn't sure about our silver dragon at first as he used his magic to enhance Neko's emotions a little. However, as the book progressed he kind of grew on me as he has good intentions. I've had this one on my kindle for a while but never got around to it till now. I've been craving a good dragon shifter story which is just what I got from Dragon Hunter. It's a quick paced action packed story with just enough steamy moments to leave you wanting more. The characters are great I honestly loved Neko she's such a good person and easy to connect with too. Dragon Hunter is a captivating first installment in an exciting new dragon series that mixes magic and just enough romance. This is my first book by the author but I plan to read more as I enjoyed this one so much.

Part one of this series is an equal balance of world and character background building. Just when the story is getting interesting..cliffhanger! I'm not usually a fan of serials but 1. All four parts are available and 2. the story is intriguing enough I want to know what happens next!

    I love the start to this new series. A man who can make a woman almost have an orgasm with a mere look, what could be better? A whole clan of them! They are the Kindred only heard of in tales of legends, but they are very real and they are Dragon Shifters full of untold magic. Neko is a Hunter she has spent her life hunting lifeless shifters that feed off shifters, but now she is contracted to kill a certain dragon, but finds that all she can do is lust for the man when in his presence.

Will his seduction be enough to conquer the huntress. OMG, I can't wait for book 2!

    DIVINELY ENTERTAINING !!! Title: Dragon Hunter Series: Dragon Hunter Chronicles Designation: Book One of Four Book Serial, Not a Standalone, Cliffhanger Author: Carina Wilder Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy Reading Platform: Kindle Edition My Rating: Five Captivating Stars***** Wow!

And yes, I said serial which means multiple installment DIVINELY ENTERTAINING !!! Title: Dragon Hunter Series: Dragon Hunter Chronicles Designation: Book One of Four Book Serial, Not a Standalone, Cliffhanger Author: Carina Wilder Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy Reading Platform: Kindle Edition My Rating: Five Captivating Stars***** Wow! Carina Wilder has totally rocked my world with Dragon Hunter: Book One, the first of four serial installments in her riveting new Dragon Hunter Chronicles Saga. And yes, I said serial which means multiple installments, in this case four, with cliffhangers ahead. But never fear, the story is now complete so no fuss, no muss and NO waiting! I love paranormal romance and adore urban fantasy but put the two together and I'm in heaven. Fortunately for me, that's exactly what Carina Wilder has delivered with Dragon Hunter, and once again she's left me completely breathless. I've been a loyal Carina Wilder fan for several years, devouring everything she writes, but she's truly raised the bar with this story. Wilder is an incredibly skilled wordsmith as well as gifted storyteller with an extraordinary imagination. She excels at building realistic, vividly depicted fantasy worlds filled with intriguing supernatural characters who literally explode from the pages, come to life and capture your heart. And without a doubt, Dragon Hunter is some of her best work to date with a riveting storyline with a familiar backdrop, a cast of fascinating characters and enough suspense to keep you glued to your seat, white knuckling your ereader with your heart fluttering wildly in your chest. And just how do I know this after reading only the first installment? Well, I'm so glad you asked. Usually I read each of Wilder's books as soon as they're published but I may have cheated a little this time and waited until all four installments had been released, then binged on the completed collection, all 400 pages of deliciously sexy goodness. So with that in mind, I have written one review to post for each of the books. But don't worry, my review doesn't include spoilers. Oh, and FYI, she's also already released the box set containing all four books of the serial. Initially, I purchased the first book, but then discovered the entire serial was complete and published in one collection, and available under the Kindle Unlimited program. Well I jumped on it like white on rye! Gotta love Kindle Unlimited! But as usual, I digress so let's talk specifics about Dragon Hunter. The story is an exciting, imaginative, fast paced, well crafted and well edited story which, in my opinion, is a cross between paranormal romance and urban fantasy with supernatural elements woven throughout. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with alternating his and her perspectives from the two protagonists, beautiful, independent, fearless and endearingly spunky Hunter Neko Sands, and handsome, fearless, valiant and very gallant Kindred water dragon-shifter Lumen Riddick. The dialogue is smart, snappy, seductive, well executed, sometimes humorous and flows effortlessly. But the pivotal and my favorite component of this story is the cast of intriguing characters. They are captivating, engaging, endearing, well developed and sexy as sin. I was immediately smitten with the courageous and strong-willed Neko and fell head over heels in love with the charismatic, loyal Lumen. Sigh..... They were so very different yet so much alike, complementing each other brilliantly. And their sexual chemistry was smokin' hot! I even found myself totally fascinated by the uniqueness of the antagonists of this story so they also deserve praise. I found them to be quite inventive and different from anything I've ever encountered. Wilder skillfully combines these elements to craft a divinely entertaining paranormal saga filled to the brim with wondrous magic, breathtaking fantasy, heart-pounding danger, edge of your seat suspense, heated attraction, fiery passion, sweet romance and dreamy sex. Beautiful and very independent twenty-four year old Neko Sands lives a solitary life, one filled with danger, violence and death. But Neko is much different than the other young women who walk the streets of London. At only five years old, Neko realized she was different and some would say special, possessing a unique ability to see, sense and track supernatural beings. As a result, she devotes her life to working as a Hunter, ridding the world of the Lapsed, murderous insidious creatures who resemble frightening zombified shifters who are truly evil. Even her off days are spent performing acts of vigilantism, rescuing victims on the streets of London. Yes, she kills but only the evil creatures who roam and terrorize the streets of London. Although she may not realize it, Neko is so much more than just a Hunter; she's a Seeker and her destiny is yet to be fulfilled. She feels called to protect the innocent, both human and shifter alike. It gives her live meaning and purpose. She refuses to trust or depend on anyone other than herself. She's never needed anyone, especially a man.....until now....until him....Lumen Riddick, a man too beautiful, too charismatic and too perfect to be human. No matter how hard she tries, she can't resist the attraction she feels for Lumen. It's surpassess anything Neko has ever experienced and now that she's met him, her life as well as her future has become entwined with his. Neko suddenly finds herself torn between two lives, one she's always known and a strange yet exciting new one with her as an integral part of something intense, mysterious, ancient and life changing. A dangerous battle looms but dangerous to whom? To humans? To shifters? To her??? And upon which side will she find herself? What do you trust...your heart or your duty??? But more importantly, whom do you trust when you trust no one??? Lumen is a water dragon and leader of the Kindred. The safety of all dragons as well as other shifters depends on keeping their existence a secret but a dangerous enemy is lurking in the shadows of London, seeking to destroy them. The Lapsed, evil mindless malevolent creatures, are being manipulated by mysterious entities called Controllers who wishes to steal the Kindred's power and they have the perfect plan to accomplish their goals. A Controller has hired Neko Sands, the best Hunter the Syndicate employs, to track and kill Lumen; for without Lumen, there can be no Seeking and no Gathering. Lumen and his brethren have known for centuries this day would come but the one thing Lumen could never have anticipated is the beautiful Hunter hired to assassinate him. Unfortunately, in order to defeat the evil threatening his Kindred brothers and all humanity, he must seek and find one of the four hidden symbols which make up the Relic, a circular object needed to complete the ritualistic Gathering. For each symbol represented as the sigils for Water, Fire, Air and Earth, there is a Seeker (Kindred) who seeks it, plus a Keeper (dragon) who holds his verse. When the time comes, the two unite and the Keeper provides the Seeker with his verse which serves as the clue hopefully enabling him to find his one quarter of the Relic. If the relics are discovered by the Controllers, it could mean not only the end of everything for both shifters and humans but also the end of a possible future for Lumen and Neko. But to succeed, Lumen needs the beautiful Hunter's help. Lumen quickly realizes he doesn't just want Neko to help with his quest, he needs her like he needs his next breath. But will she help him and if so, will he ever be able to trust her??? Oh my! It sounds complicated but it's really not! lol.... It is, however, exciting, riveting, thrilling, suspenseful, sexy and romantic! When reviewing and rating a book, there are several questions I always ask myself. First, Did I love, like or hate the story? Quite obviously, I loved it! I adored the premise for the story as well as the characters. Neko was an incredible heroine, beautiful, strong, brave, selfless and loyal but without conceit. And Lumen was a true joy, handsome, charming, understanding, courageous and a true romantic at heart. Even from the beginning, he was never afraid to admit his feelings for Neko. Of course, it took Neko a little longer, but she finally came around. lol...I found the story to be original, unique and very imaginative. It was also well crafted, well edited and beautifully written. There wasn't a single thing I didn't like about this story and nothing I would change. Like Goldilocks, it was just right! Second, would I recommend this book? You bet and I am but only for adult readers. It does contain some steamy love scenes. Many of Wilder's fans know that she writes quite a few menage scenarios but this story is strictly one male and one female. Third, will I read this author again? Abso-freaking-lutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book. As a matter of fact, I can hardly wait for her to release the next story in The Dragon Hunter Chronicles which she has already announced will be entitled Dragon Seeker releasing July 31, 2016. Woo-Hoo! And finally, was I entertained? Oh yes, totally and completely entertained from page one until the very last line. I was completely enthralled, glued to my chair, white knuckling my ereader with the pages flying as did the time. Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!

    This "book 1" is really more than 1 smaller books put together. I made it through the first of these smaller books before deciding the book wasn't worth my time. I have two big issues with this novel. 1) PREDICTABLE - If someone had asked me to outline the most common shifter plot line (i.e., cliched, overdone, boring, unimaginative) I would have nailed this book spot on.

I kept reading in hopes that things would take a turn and become more interesting. They didn't. 2) OVERLY SEXUAL - generally when certain vocabulary words are used on the first page of a novel, the novel loses major points for me. There is a place for inner sensual thoughts and narration regarding physical attraction and actual physical intimacy in a plot, and generally it is to *move the plot forward*. Here it is almost entirely gratuitous. To me, it's a red flag that the plot isn't substantive enough to carry the book, and so erotica is necessary to keep people reading. I won't be the person reading. So even though I'm fairly certain where this novel is going, if you read this review and finished the book anyway, please feel free to let me know if anything interesting actually happens in the main plot line.

    Wow. Great start This serial intrigued me with the first glance at the cover. A dragon hunter that falls for a dragon. I foresee a bumpy romance. The author gives just that. The hunter Neko does protest too much though and it makes the dialogue stilted at times. The sexual meanderings in her mind get old fast too, which is why it lost a star. The plot is intriguing, zombie shifters being used as assassins. Do wish the author has spent more time on world building and backstory.

    The story and strong characters quickly draw you in! The strong characters are well crafted & interesting. The plot of the book, with the hunters and who they actually hunt is a unique spin! Just how the dragons fit into the whole picture is a great story!! I had to purchase all the other ones today, because I had to know what happens next!! Be sure & keep reading even after it looks like the book ended- it doesn’t!!

    Love dragons! This is something different, though. A war is about to begin between an ancient shifter bloodline and a half-breed race that wants to exterminate the dragons. And the seekers are caught in the middle.

And he knows things about Neko that she don't know but if she could learn to trust him he could teach her. But he wants more but not more then she is willing to give and not till she is willing without magic being the cause. Umbra who hired her has also hired Vail (most sadistic bast*** to ever walk the earth) and he is near her home. Lumen wants to take her to safety if she will go. But maybe it's not as safe as he thinks.

    I really like this story. It is the first part of the Chronicles. I'm usually not into cliff-hangers, but this one is great. I can't wait to read the next part. Neko is a human hunter of the Lapsed,very bad beings. She is also the fated mate of Lumen is a dragon shifter and her mate. Neko has been hired to kill Lumen. Will she succeed in her job? Will she want to be Lumen's mate? Why does Umbra want him dead or does he really? This is a must read book. I give this story 5 stars. I was given this I really like this story.

    Neko (Hunter) & Lumen (Dragon/Kindred) story is as old as time at the core then you add in the danger and adventure and its a winning combo. Book one of this series starts off with a bang and never slows down. It will capture your heart and never let go. The author's ability to weave the lines together to make an amazing story is a high light. I recommend it to all paranormal lovers. I can't wait for book two. *Disclaimer...

    As I read this book 1 of a series, I realize that this e Dragon is the epitome of every woman's dragon lover fantasy. Yes, every dragon shifter book should achieve that, but this is the very first one that the thought popped in my head. Don't get me wrong, I am sure prior dragons that I have read have been worthy, I just find it interesting that this one drew that thought out. Be warned one heck of a cliffhanger, however this story is truly with it.

    While I enjoyed the read, it is one of those books that they break down into many small parts. Each part is like a novella and you must buy all the parts to finish the story. I'd rather pay one price for a full book than have to pay each time I want a snippet. :( Merged review: While I enjoyed the read, it is one of those books that they break down into many small parts.

    This is a good introduction to a new series. I found the characters interesting and unique. The storyline was well put together and you got a good idea where the author wants to take you in this new world. The characters are strong, loyal and sexy. You also get new kinds of characters not only shifters but hunters, kindred, lapsed and more. The only thing I was sad about is the story seem to end too soon and you are left wondering what will happen next.

    In a world where shifters and people coexsist there is a threat to to the dragon shifters. Neko is a hunter hired to kill a Kindred, a powerful dragon, named Lumen. However killing him isn't what she wants most, even if she denies it to herself. Cant wait to see what happened next for Neko and Lumen! I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
