Review: Hunt the Dawn by Abbie Roads

Reviewed by Jaimie

Hunt the Dawn is the second book in the Fatal Dreams series by Abbie Roads.  The first book was reviewed by Jen and it wasn’t for her, but I really enjoyed it so I jumped in to read the second installment.  In order for me to enjoy a book with psychic elements, the story must be really good, and I liked Hunt the Dawn even more than Race the Darkness.  The heroine has survived hell and come out on top and while she lets the hero help her, she is a badass in her own right.

We were introduced to Lathan Montgomery in Race the Darkness, but very little was revealed about him.  With the ability to see other people’s memories through scent, he is a very valuable asset to the FBI. Unfortunately, this ability hits him at times when he cannot control it and the sensations are overwhelming.  This has led him to a very lonely life.  All that changes when he comes across a scene where a woman is being attacked, and he intervenes.

Review: Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

The blurb for this book sounded right up my alley. I am all about a tortured hero. Here, Xander is both physically scarred and mentally ravaged by his ability to hear the thoughts of other people. Making matters worse, he is haunted by the voice of a woman begging him to save her. Our heroine, Isleen, has been held captive for years and found some of her only comfort in her dreams of Xander. The story essentially begins with him saving her and moves forward from there.

It sounds amazing, right? And it has tons of glowing reviews on Goodreads. But it did not work, at least for me, for a number of reasons. [Read more…]
