LoveReading View on The Hunt

May 2012 eBook of Month.

If you're on the hunt for an original plot that's thought-provoking and chilling then The Hunt will be just up your street.  Gene is human in a world where they've been made extinct other than those held in an Institute.  For 17 years he's managed to keep all usual human emotions well hidden from those around him but now having been selected to go on the once a decade hunt of human kind he must somehow learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow competitors whose suspicions about wat he really is grow. Praise has been heaped on this debut by the author of the Vampire Academy series among others for itsbrilliantly original theme.

In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title.
