This story continues two weeks after The Rogue Hunter ends. If you havenít read The Rogue Hunter you may want to skip this review as there are several spoilers. The Immortal Hunter begins with Sam being questioned by Lucian of the vampire Council to see if she can remain Mortimerís life mate without being turned. She wants to remain unturned so that she can still have contact with her family.
Decker, Mortimer and Justin are dispatched to find a group of rogues and bring them in for trial. Decker learns that one of the rogues is a defector in his own family. This rogue group has also kidnapped two young women and Decker must rescue them.
Danielle McGill is a doctor who has been kidnapped along with her sister Stephanie. They are taken to a clearing in the woods and just when she thinks the worst is about to happen, Decker and his friends arrive to save the day. Decker is wounded saving her but her sister is taken by the rogues. Dani doesnít know whether to trust Decker. There are too many questions, such as why his wounds are healing so fast, and what is the secret organization he says heís part of. Decker also confuses her when he starts talking about life mates and the passion between the two becomes more than she has ever known.
This is a wonderful series. It is suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Iím a big vampire junkie and this book fits in so nicely with what I read. If you like Laurell K. Hamilton, this is a great addition to that genre. Decker and Dani make a wonderful pair and Justin seems like the younger brother with all of the heckling he does to Mortimer and Decker. Lynsay segues nicely between the previous book and this one so it has a really good flow to it. Lynsay also sets up each book so that you donít have to read them in order to understand the plot. These books are easily read on their own. If you love vampire novels definitely pick this one up.
