Author Caridad Piñeiro. The Claimed (Sin Hunters), .

The Claimed by Caridad Pineiro is the second book in her Sin Hunters series. This book focuses on Victoria Johnson, a Light Hunter and Christopher Sombrosa, a Shadow Hunter. The Light Hunters and Shadow Hunters have been at odds for centuries, probably because the Shadow Hunters feed from their Light Hunter cousins. I must admit that this book was confusing at first. So many terms are thrown at the reader: Anaru, Quinchu, Cadres, Equinoxes, etc. I had read The Lost and it still took me a while to The Claimed by Caridad Pineiro is the second book in her Sin Hunters series.

The cast is fully developed whether they are Victoria’s BFFs or clan members, but especially the protagonists.

Amazing.
I ate this story up! It was such a refreshing read. The storyline is so unique and each page just kept me so into the story I never wanted to put it down.

LOVED the conflicts Caridad threw at the hero and heroine. The sense of honor and loyalty---and love--was so intense I found myself reading faster and faster to find out what happened next.

Christopher is one of my favorite types of heroes. Strong and sensitive, dedicated to his values. Strong, but not arrogant. I just loved Christopher.

Great story, Caridad. Can't wait to see what you come up with next in this series!!!

I have read several of Caridad's books and I have never been disappointed. The main characters have great chemistry and I rooted for them from the start.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A dark and somewhat sexy story about Light and Shadow Hunters who feed off of the power of nature and humans. A must read for those who want something a little different in their paranormal.

Opening Sentence: The flares of energy shooting off Alexander’s aura were Christopher’s first clue that his father was weak enough to be defeated.

The Review:

The Claimed by Caridad Piñeiro is the fourth in the Sin Hunter series. This is definitely a series to check out if you don’t like the same ol’ stuff in paranormal. These characters have a kind of power that deal with nature and the forces that surround us. There are Light Hunters and there are Shadow Hunters and they are mortal enemies. Each Hunter have different kinds of power and power source, while they both have their limitations. Hunters and Shadows will soon be extinct if they don’t do something about it.

Victoria Johnson is a Light Hunter Quinchu. She will one day lead the Hunters in her area. As a Quinchu, she soaks up power and gives it to others who can’t soak up their own power. She owns her own boat/surf shop. Then one day, she sees a boy severely injured in a boating accident and she uses her powers to help save him. She is seen by someone. But showing off her powers isn’t her only problem in life, Victoria needs to find a mate and soon before the choice is taken out of her hands.

Christopher is a Shadow Hunter but he isn’t like other Shadow Hunters. He is trying to save his race. He has kept his essence pure. He is on a mission to find the Quinchu with extreme power when he finds Victoria, a woman he is strangely attracted too and who might hold the key to the survival of their races. Christopher must fight his father if he hopes for any kind of a peaceful future.

The romance isn’t quite based off of mating but it is a little bit like that, it is a bit weird. Each Hunter goes through some kind of “heat”, I don’t remember what they called it, but their powers go haywire and overpower them until they find someone who is compatible. In my eyes, it felt like it was when the woman was the most fertile because the “bonding” will include getting pregnant. The story was written in the third person like a lot of romance novels are penned and there were many different POV’s besides Victoria and Christopher.

Victoria is a tough cookie but she did have some flaws that I didn’t really care for. She was willing to let her parents go ahead and arrange a marriage for her because she couldn’t find the love that she was looking for. She fights for everything but was willing to just give up when it came to something that important. Christopher is the dark, alpha male who actually tries to look at the brighter side of life because it is so easy to give in to the dark side. He doesn’t want to be sick like the rest of the Shadow Hunters. He truly fights for good.

I haven’t read any of the rest of this series but I do think it closely ties in with the third book, The Lost, as its main characters show up a lot in this book and the underlying story line ties have a lot to do with Adam and the power he welds. My real only complaint is that this book has an open ending and as far as I can tell no sequel to finish the story. One of the things that are never resolved is Victoria telling her parents about Christopher and how they were compatible.

Overall, this was a different paranormal book for me. I enjoyed it enough that I wouldn’t mind checking out how the series began but I’m a little bummed that the story didn’t end properly. If you want to read something that isn’t quite the same as the norm then I would say check out the Sin Hunter series.

Notable Scene:

As the man hurried away from Victoria, Christopher sucked in a breath to gird himself against his attraction to her and cautiously approached. When he neared, she looked his way, and there was no denying the flare of desire that stretched between them. It only grew stronger the closer he got. For a moment it seemed as if she would bolt again, but then she faced him and stood her ground.

“You seem upset. Is there anything I can do?”

“I’m sorry. I’ve just got some family things going on right now.” With a weary sigh, she shook her head, and he couldn’t contain his need to touch and try to reassure despite his concern about not knowing if he could trust her.

The second he placed his hand on her shoulder, the pull of energy arose, so in sync with his own that his center vibrated in harmony. He stepped closer to her as her eyes widened and then dilated with the pleasure created by the link.

“Why is this happening?” Victoria asked, placing her hand over his heart, creating an arc of power that only strengthened the bond between them.

With such a strong current, he could no longer deny what she was. “I think we both know the answer to that.”

You know that book you start reading and when you realize it's so romancy, you should dislike it, but you kind of got addicted anyway and read through the night knowing full well how it's going to end? Well, The Claimed is that book.

Caridad Pineiro's Claimed is a wonderful new addition to the paranormal romance genre with its superb writing style and predictable but addicting plotline. It's refreshing because it has vampires Hunters, violence and romance, but the two main characters don't constantly fall all over or abandon everything else for each other. Both Victoria and Christopher are strong characters with important leadership roles and although they are very much attracted to each other, they try not to let it affect their responsibilities and once they decide they will be together, they still keep their friends and clans their priority. The romance builds slowly as the two would-be enemies learn to trust each other and fall further in love.

The obstacles they must overcome to be a couple are similar to what has been done before but the way the author writes it, it seems to be something completely original. Victoria's clan, the Light Hunters, and Christopher's clan, The Shadow Hunters, have been mortal enemies for centuries and blame each other for much loss and pain they have endured. So it's of course inconceivable that each finds the other harmless and attractive and GASP - good. But then they realize what their clans have believed for centuries are lies and must convince their followers of the same. Of course, the technical leaders - their parents - don't believe them for a second and Christopher's father actually wages war on Christopher's followers and attempts to kill Christopher to keep him from joining his clan with Victoria's.

The new words - Equinox, Quinchu, etc didn't throw me at all, they were so skillfully weaved through the story, I felt like I'd known those words my whole life. Speaking of which, I felt like I'd known the characters for so long too, they just pop right off the page. Even the evil character like Maya was so well-rounded, by the end, you don't know whether to hate her or feel sorry for her or even root for her! The pace was very quick and it had me turning pages well into the night, so even at 350 pages, it was a quick read.
The only reason this book got 3.5 stars instead of 4 was that it explicitly described the sex scenes which really made me uncomfortable and I had to skip a couple pages sometimes. Obviously, it was an error of judgement on my part and with such a cover, I should have anticipated such scenes, but I can't help but have them affect my rating and my enjoyment of this book. So if you don't mind the heated scenes (all the way), I would highly recommend this book, especially to fans of Gena Showalter.

The previous book featured the story behind how Adam Bruno got his powers, but you don't feel like you missed anything by not having read that book, so this one can easily be read as a standalone. I wonder if the next book (if there is one) will follow Maya and her past and future. Alexander's past and how he came to be so unemotional would also make for a great story.
