Title: Knight of the Hunted
Born Vampire Book 1
Author: Elizabeth Dunlap
400-year-old Lisbeth was born a vampire. She has lived most of her life in the castle of her Order, drinking the blood of her companion to stay healthy and maintaining the rules laid down centuries ago.
But when a Lycan child inadvertently crosses their border one day, instead of killing it Lisbeth sets it free. She is rewarded by the Lycan Alpha, but she has flouted the law which states that all Lycans who cross into Vampire territory should be killed.
When Arthur, a sinister Hunter whose job it is to investigate vampires who have broken the laws, is sent to the castle, Lisbeth is certain that it will be discovered that she had spared the Lycan child. And when her best friend Olivier is recruited by Arthur she has only one option left.
Escaping from the castle, Lisbeth meets and befriends Knight, another Lycan, and travelling with him Lisbeth eventually finds herself in a town filled with co-existing vampires and humans and run by the volatile Born-vampire, James.
As the menacing James begins to exert control over Lisbeth, she realizes that she must escape from him too. But to where? The dangers in the town are bad enough, but with the Hunters still searching for her, it might just be the safest place to be.

The synopsis immediately caught my attention and I knew I had to read this story. I loved Knight of the Hunted! It gave a fresh take on vampires and lycans and the relationship between the two. It was a wild adventure that kept me invested the entire length of the novel. This is the first book in the Born Vampire series and I can not wait to continue it and find out what happens next!
Vampires and lycans are enemies and after Lisbeth saves a child, she is hunted by her own kind. Lisbeth is protected by an Alpha, giving her his bracelet in return for saving the life of the lycan cub. Lisbeth runs away, fearing her life, she travels far from home. She gains help from Knight, a lycan with no pack. After traveling together for some time they become friends. Knight protects her as best he can but there are certain forces that even he is powerless against.
Knight of the Hunted is such an enthralling read and it was hard to put the book down. I had to know what was going to happen to Lisbeth! You start to see some sort of relationship aside from friendship develop between Knight and Lisbeth although the romance doesn’t take place until the very end of the book, on a cliffhanger. If you’re a lover of the paranormal, I highly recommend reading Knight of the Hunted. I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next book!
