Review: Eternal Prey by Nina Bangs

Book Description:

The souls of ancient predators crouch within the Eleven. Primal instincts and barely contained savagery drive them. But in a modern world threatened with chaos and darkness, they are…
Gods of the Night.

Utah knows all about vengeance. Vampires killed his brother, and that act demands only one response. He frees his beast and destroys every bloodsucker he finds. But he never expected to meet a leader of his immortal enemies who was so beautiful, bewitching…and mortal.
Lia understands her destiny. She has a duty to stop the rogue vampires who are intent on wiping out the human race along with any nonhumans that get in their way. But she needs help dealing with the shadowy power guiding the escalating slaughter. Utah would be her last choice for a partner. Once a deadly foe, he now becomes her ally and protector. Loving him will be more dangerous than anything she’s ever done. Because when Utah releases his soul, the ultimate predator will once again stalk the earth, and death will walk with him.


I read the first books (Eternal Pleasure and Eternal Craving) on my own and was excited to get the chance to review Eternal Prey. The use of prehistoric creatures, specifically dinosaurs, makes this book unlike anything you have ever read. Because I had read others in the series I knew Eternal Prey would be hot and steamy and I was not disappointed.

Eternal Prey includes a long cast of characters, all with excellent names like Q, Tor, and Fin, but you don't need to worry about getting confused or having the story suffer for it. Each character contributes to the overall plot and just when you think you've got everything figured out another layer of details are added, making the world more complex than before. Nothing ever feels contrived, and everything relates, creating a rich universe that moves at just the right speed.

Utah and Lia are a scorching hot couple despite the fact that she is a vampire and his soul belongs to a prehistoric beast. Talk about opposites attract! It's not often that a series calls to me, because let's face it, the shelves can be a bit crowded these days, but Eternal Prey and the Gods of Night make for incredible reading. And I remain optimistic that eventually we will have all our questions about Fin (and Seir, Zero, and even Christine) answered, and that all Fin's secrets will be revealed.

I read the first two in this series and although the premis sounds silly they were both really good. I enjoyed reading them and I'm excited about Eternal Prey. Can't wait to read it!
