Blood Descent (Blood Hunters # 3) by Marie Treanor

A child is born...into the final showdown of Vampire and Hunter

The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child… Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.

The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.

Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.

While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter, and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man. -

Okay, so I was planning on reading a few other books before I came back to this vampire romance series, but I just had to find out what happened next!

I really didn't understand the whole part with the journalist, Lisa, and I don't really understand why Soloman wants vampires to be out in the open. They've kind of been living it up without the majority of humans knowing about them, so why rock the boat? 

This book follows Konrad, who can be summed up in one simple word, DUMB. He's so hellbent on killing Soloman that he's throwing his whole life away, including his closest friends. Ironically, it's the vampire Maggie who wants to save him. He annoyed me so much in the other books, and at first I really wasn't very enthusiastic about spending a whole book with mainly just him. 

I did warm up to his character though after learning more of his back-story and how he came to hate all vampires. Also it helped in understanding that he wasn't always a crazy vampire slayer, that life had been thrust upon him. 

I loved Maggie. She was smart, compassionate, and strong. I felt like Maggie was just a girl that became a vampire, but she was still very much a person with values.

This book was okay. I read these books really fast. I did enjoy that this book had a lot more plot behind it than book 2 did, which was pretty much just vampire smut.
