Second in the Sin Hunters series, The Claimed will not disappoint fans new or old. The Light Hunters and Shadow Hunters are mortal enemies and this paranormal Romeo and Juliet romance with an edge will keep readers intrigued. Just like her characters, Piñeiro’s books are smart, sensual and irresistible.

Victoria is a successful business owner by day and heiress to a supernatural ancient race by night. It’s her duty to restore her Light Hunter people to their former glory by finding the perfect mate. As a member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher believes he’s found his perfect mate in Victoria. She is beautiful and intelligent, possessing an erotic energy that is sure to ignite his bloodline. They would make the perfect couple if only they weren’t on opposite sides of the warring clans. Coming together as a couple would bring peace to their people, but unfortunately, peace is the last thing some people in their clans want and they will do anything to keep them apart. (FOREVER, May, 368 pp., $7.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Claimed

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on October 5, 2012 - 1:28pm.

Our Review [By LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha-Michelle L Olson]:

Once again, Caridad Pineiro does not disappoint. I enjoyed this book even better than book #1, The Lost, and cannot wait for the next installment.

Those of you that read my review for The Lost may know that I wasn't so sure about this series, despite begin a huge Caridad fan, but I am so happy that I put my apprehensions aside and jumped in.

Like book #1, this was a 2 sitting wonder, and only because I was forced to put it down. As I mentioned, I thought it was even better than the first book, and I absolutely adored the characters.

Christopher is a Shadow trying to walk the straight and narrow, even though is father is diabolical, and the Light Hunters were groomed to hate all Shadows. With his best friend and cadre captain Ryan by his side, he tries to get his tribe back in order and revert back to the ancient ways to combat the plague that has been haunting them for ages.

Victoria is a Light Hunter in line to take over the ocean tribe, and living the life of a virtual human. With her best friends around her, she has a charmed life, but it's missing one thing... love.

When the two meet, sparks fly (literally) and they can't deny their unbelievable attraction. But does the whole 'Romeo and Juliet' thing ever end up being more than a tragedy? In their case, and with a lot of hard work, convinction and support... Yes. :)

This series continues to be an emotional roller-coaster full of excitement, regret, love, passion, uncertainty, betrayal, retribution, and so much more! In true Caridad Pineiro fashion it was incredibly written, with vivid imagery and strong, well developed characters.

The book was an incredible installment to the series and it just makes readers want book #3 all that much more.

In a nutshell, LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club gives The Claimed 5 Skulls, and would recommend it to Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and even some Sci-Fi readers.
