Book Review: The Mighty Hunter by Michelle M. Pillow


The Mighty Hunter is the first book in the Lords of the Abyss series by Michelle M. Pillow. Scientist Bridget Dutton's heart belongs to her work. When her boat is attacked from below, Bridget’s dream to study the deep waters of the ocean just might come true sooner than planned. Caderyn the Hunter may have rescued her from death, but who’s going to rescue her from him? With a deliciously hot body and all the right moves, the man is a walking seduction that’s too hard to resist. There’s only one problem. Caderyn claims they’re in the Abyss, living on a cursed island along the deep ocean floor. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, he says he’s a merman. attraction and logic battle for Bridget's attention.

The Mighty Hunter is almost erotica but not quite. There are a lot of steamy scenes to be had and those are pretty well done. Caderyn is a strong man, and strong minded. He is more patient and tolerant than I. Bridget, on the other hand, might have been intelligent but grated on my nerves with her lack of common sense. Even after all the evidence made it clear where she is, even when she sees with her own eyes, even after multiple romps in bed with Caderyn, she still needs more proof for her own piece of mind. It just got a little repetitive and bothersome after a while. I only continued to read because the intimate scenes were so entertaining, and I wanted to know more about the secondary characters.

I would only recommend The Mighty Hunter to readers that are die hard mer fans, Pillow fans, or those that are reading for the 'good parts'. I will admit that I kept going and finished the series, and the other heroines are a little better, but the stories as a whole do not improve much.
