The Hunt Review

304 pages
Release date: May 8th, 2012

Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them. Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood. When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

Review (ARC):
The concept of this book is genius and the ending left me anticipating the next one. Finally some vampires that don't sparkle! Imagine a world where everyone is a vampire except for you. And you can't let anyone know or you'll be killed instantaneously. Gene has to live a very careful and precise life so that he can blend in with the other vampires. Just the slightest mistake can reveal that he's human and end his life forever. Gene is randomly chosen for a game to hunt humans. This is an even more dangerous experience than Gene has prepared for and it becomes a struggle for him to maintain. Being around other hunters and humans brings a lot of thoughts and questions that Gene hadn't had before. There is quite a bit of action and a little bit of romance in this novel. The ending reveals something MAJOR and then just ends so I definitely can't wait to read the next book. I definitely recommend this novel especially to those who like bloodthirsty vampires, action, adventure and just a generally awesome read.
