V Games: Season 3: Hunter Trials is finally here and WOW, WOW, WOW!

Honestly, every book in The V Games is so well written, action packed and fast paced! I’m just blown away by this series; It just keeps getting better.

Hunter Trials is the beginning of Season 3, it shines the light on Mercy Van Helsing, a hunter.  

Mercy has grown sooo much as a character since she was first introduced in the first season, and she’s growing on me. She’s grown into this complex character that has so much depth, from someone who did exactly what her mother told her to do and willingly turned a blind eye to the horrors of her family’s ways to something completely opposite she’s growing up and finally realizing she was never really like her family. The Hunter Trials was a whole new experience for her, she’s a Helsing and she knows she’s got what it takes, even if she doubts herself. I’m just realizing now how strong she really is. It’s nice to see a whole new side of her, since the tables have turned and she’s now in her own type of games, we get to finally see just what Mercy is made of and how far she’ll go before she breaks…

One thing that was kinda confusing was all the Silas & Kate’s parts. I know it’s kinda a continuation of what happened in Wolf Games: Severed Fate, but it just felt awkward, since it was smack right in the middle of Mercy’s story. I feel like it could have been integrated a bit better.

It’s going to be torture waiting for book 2 of the Hunter Trials, but It’ll be worth the wait. Caroline Peckham is brilliant. Such a well written and fast-paced series! I highly recommend it!
