A Wild Light by Marjorie M. Liu
Hunter Kiss #3

For too long Maxine Kiss has felt an inexplicable darkness inside her-a force she channels into hunting the demons bent on destroying the human race. But when she finds herself covered in blood and crouched beside her grandfather’s dead body with no memory of what happened, Maxine begins to fear that the darkness has finally consumed her.  

It's Maxine's birthday and the anniversary of her mother's death. Before going to her birthday party, Maxine and the boys remember her mother by killing a demon. The party goes off great despite the heavy heart Maxine has. However, when she wakes up the next morning next to her grandfather Jack's body, covered in blood and missing most of her memories, she goes into utter shock. But the biggest shock is the man named Grant who tells her he is her lover yet she has not one single memory of him. With everyone gunning for her and Grant she must figure out what happened to Jack quickly before someone finally succeeds in destroying them.

Ah, finally things are starting to become a lot clearer. If you've read my reviews on the previous books, you know just how frustrated I was. I was able to enjoy this book much more now that so many questions have been answered. I really loved how even though Maxine has a destiny, it isn't set in stone. She has the ability to shape which direction the power takes as it is her heart that controls it. It seems that "good heart" her mother worked so hard to raise Maxine with, will finally show its real importance.

Although parts of this book were heartbreaking, I think the bad moments between Maxine and Grant will only strengthen them. It will just take some time. The relationship between Maxine and her grandfather really seemed to solidify in this book. I'm glad the two of them are finally starting to trust each other and that he is learning from his mistakes, even if it has taken him thousands of years to do so. The boys were even more adorable in this book, and I love the amazingly strong bond they have with Maxine, and now Grant as well. If there was one thing I could say that would make the entire series worth reading it would be those boys.

This book is extremely fast paced and now that so much has been revealed, the stakes have stepped up a major notch. I was on the edge of my seat for most of this book, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm really happy with the "new" direction the series is taking even if the revelations have been completely shocking. Maxine and the boys are such amazing characters that have great strength despite their flaws. I am eager to see where their story goes.

  1. I loved this book. I read the other two also, and enjoyed them quite a bit. Have you read her other series? A kind soul sent me the first two of her Dirk and Steele series. There in my TBR pile, soon to be read.
