*****
Shiloh Walker twisted and turned characters and events into the spellbinding tale of HUNTER'S FALL. I was intrigued by Nessa and Dominic's relationship, wondering how Ms. Walker was going to pull everything together, especially since they spent a good portion of the book away from each other. Though their separation didn't stall the development of the characters and their relationship at all, in fact I felt that it deepened my understanding of them. 

I loved how Ms. Walker delved into Nessa's struggling emotions, I could feel her despair, and completely understand why she was ready to give up everything. I loved when she realized what and who Dominic was, it was great to see her opening up. I also really like seeing Nessa battle, I loved the show of power and strength that she conveyed. It was also good to see Dominic realize he wasn't crazy, that there was an explanation for what had been happening to him. 

As always, I eagerly await Shiloh Walker's next book, no matter what the genre, she is on the top of my auto-buy list.

Rating: 4.5 /5
