Review: Hunting Kat

Reviewed by Jen

Hunting Kat is sexy, futuristic sci-fi story, with a little bit of paranormal flavor. The main character, Kat, is a mercenary with a traumatic past. She was taken prisoner, raped, forced into lycanthropy, and kept as a pet by her enemies. That was years ago, and she has come a long way, but she still hasn’t entirely recovered, nor has she had a relationship with a man since.

Her shipmates hope to change that. So they leave her behind on a planet for some forced R&R. She meets Rygard at a local bar and she is undeniably attracted to him. Rygard is a soldier who is questioning his future in the military, after a mission went bad. The two of them get together quickly with some hot results. But before the afterglow even fades, the repercussions of Rygard’s bad mission ends up on their doorstep. He and Kat have to together to try to make things right.

I liked both leads, though Rygard does make a pretty bonehead move with Kat, not knowing her history. Their tumble in the sheets is great, and a little more poignant than I would have expected, due to Kat’s sexual assault. The story was fast-paced and action packed, with well-developed characters and a strong supporting cast. I wasn’t really thrilled with the ending, though… a little epilogue would have gone a long way to give me the HEA I needed. 4 stars.

  1. This book sounds great. I love epilogues, especially in short stories and when it’s a stand alone. I just need those few pages of where the book lead to be completely staisfied. Even without that I’m sticking this on my TBR list. 🙂
