Review - The Lost by Caridad Pineiro

TITLE:    The Lost (Sin Hunters)
AUTHOR:  Caridad Pineiro
INFO:    Paperback, Fiction, 317 pages
PUBLISHED:   Forever, 2011
SOURCE:   Received from Publisher for Review and Blog Tour

FROM GOODREADS:  Adam Bruno is no ordinary millionaire. The heir to an ancient race possessing a dark, powerful magic, he can shapeshift and create energy. His gifts make him a living weapon and have forced him to live in seclusion. But now an inhuman force hunts down Adam-just when he finds someone who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined possible . . .

Home from combat in Iraq, Bobbie Carerra wants only peace, yet soon joins Adam in a terrifying battle against paranormal enemies who hide in plain sight. She's drawn to his strength of mind and body; he's attracted to her courage and intoxicating energy. Their scorching passion can either transport them to the heights of ecstasy or-if Adam's powers rage out of control-destroy them. But when an invisible brotherhood tightens its nets and someone Adam trusts betrays him, only a heartrending decision can save them.

MY TAKE:    Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Stronger Than Sin by Caridad Pineiro last fall, I was thrilled to be included on this tour for the first book in her newest series:  The Sin Hunters.  Let me note right at the beginning that Caridad's books may all be read as stand alones as well as additions to their series. 

I was very impressed that the author has yet again created memorable characters that stay with you long after you've read their story.  Bobbie and Adam were dynamite together.  The sexual tension between the two of them jumped off the pages.  Their chemistry was amazing!  I was fascinated with the shapeshifting and the energy gathering aspects of the different clans.

Many of the supporting characters in this book would be fantastic starring in their own stories.  I would love to read more about Selina and Kellen's history and I'm excited that Christopher is getting to tell his side of things in the upcoming book The Claimed. 

The world the author has created is full of people with interesting abilities.  Lots of action, intrigue and steam make this book a must read for romance lovers who like strong leads.  Ms. Pineiro's style of writing keeps the reader quickly turning the pages. 

*Loved the cover..

Out of 5 JEWELS, I give it:

  1. I just bought this one today at a Border's closing sale so I'm glad to hear that the book is good. I'm also glad to hear her books can be read as stand-alone novels. Thanks for the great review. :)
