Peek Inside Death Defying

After five hundred years, Callum Meridian, founding member of the Collective, is bored out of his mind. Until he realizes he’s physically changing—into what, he isn’t sure. Callum is determined to discover the truth, but his own people will stop at nothing to prevent it from coming out. He turns to Captain Tannis of the starship El Cazador. Sparks fly as they work together to make it out alive, but can Callum really trust the one woman hell bent on using him? Defying death has never been more dangerous...or more sexy.

5 - "I just want you to know-whatever happens-this was worth every moment." Stars!

I love this series; I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. Nina Croft has in essence taken everything I loved about the Star Wars, Star Trek and X-Men film franchises, added some brilliant twists and unforge... ...more

During this month, I have been reading a few books that are part of my goal to take myself out of my "I hate romance" shell and give a few things a try. Seeing that this was based mostly on Science Fiction and Space - in the future, vampires, werewolves and other such creatures - I decided it cou... ...more

By Mary March 16, 2014

This was by far my favorite of the series despite my disappointment regarding the probable romance between the Trog and Janie. I find myself still half expecting something amazing happening to turn that around. So much death, dying and loss in the first half of the book was dismaying and yet I fo... ...more

By GothicMom'S July 24, 2017

I love Nina Croft. Unlike most of today's authors', she does not shy away from sensitive topics or afraid to off a few characters if/when the story-line calls for it. Granted, when a character dies, it has the ability to bring readers to tears and cause them pause to continue on with the book. Bu... ...more

Originally published at Reading Reality

Death Defying begins its action/adventure/romance/space opera story just at the point where Deadly Pursuit leaves off.

And the crew of El Cazador is being pursued, with deadly intent, yet again. It looks like all the forces they have previously defeated are o... ...more

My Review:
There's not much romance like this out right now. This is a sci fi series set in a futuristic world of space ships and other planets. This is #3 in the series and I think you'd be fine reading this one as a stand-alone, but I recommend all three books. The series is really good and so c... ...more

I have not read the first two books in this series, but had no problems keeping up with what was happening or relating to the characters.

Ahh, I was just starting to go through Nina Croft withdrawal and now that has been purged. Unfortunately, I think the Blood Hunter series has now come to an end. I could be wrong, but from the ending it seems like it would be done.

In a way this book was darker than other entries in the series. Do... ...more

Miss croft is so talented, every time I pick up one of her novels, I know is gonna be out of this world! Which is exactly where this story takes place.

I loved the first two Blood Hunter novels. They were the kind of Science Fiction Romance and Space Opera that I love. I Put Death Defying on pre-order as soon as I saw it.

Death Defying (A Blood Hunter Novel) by Nina Croft is a paranormal in space adventure. I truly enjoyed Nina Croft’s The Order Series and hoped this would be just as good even though science fiction is not my favorite genre. With that being said, it is a wonderful read, which just goes to show wha... ...more

By Heather October 14, 2014

Callum is a man who appreciates a good view and Tannis gives him that good view, "Callum watched her go. She had a great a**. And he was pretty certain she hadn't forgotten the kiss - he had no intention of doing so." Nothing like these two getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar, "tent... ...more
