Hunting is a novel by S.M. Hineline. It follows the story of Jade, a twenty-eight-year-old woman who can communicate with vampires, using her mind. This is a gift she was blessed with, and one she didn't ask for. Having known vampires her whole life, accompanying her diplomat father at the Vampire Embassy, she has come to find a best friend in Princess Aldora and a close confidant in Mordecai, the vampire-human-werewolf hybrid that serves as the Vampire Embassy's head of security.
In order to guarantee the survival of the vampire race, Jade, Aldora, Mordecai and Ignatius must form a hunting team--a group that travels once every five hundred years to find a vampire child born of two human parents--the result of an ancient curse. However, their quest isn't as simple as finding the child and bringing it to the palace. Aldora's cousin, Taurean will do anything to prove her unworthy of ruling, even if that means killing Aldora and taking her hunting team too.
