The Hunt - Review
The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda

Was definitely unique,

Boy pretending to be a vampire, as humans are almost completely extinct and any that are alive live in fear. Boy goes to school with the rest of the vamps his age, he's disappointed in himself for his weird (human) behaviour and thoughts, wish he was more like others. Day dreams a lot about a ridiculous girl. Then gets sent off with said girl to the Hunt, where the last captive humans will be set free for the lucky winners to track down and devour.

(spoiler show)

and for that along gets 1 star. But unfortunately the book had a lot of faults.
I actually currently own the paperback, but thinking I might give it to charity cause its not something I'm likely to ever read again.
3 Stars.

The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda

That awkward moment when the author think this is how teenage-boys daydream about girls:


'Her slender arm flows gracefully out of her gown, the gleam of silvery light along her arm like the reflection of moonlight along the river. She gathers her hair from the back and with the expert sweep of one hand brushes it over her shoulder, exposing the sinuous nape of her neck. I wonder if she is thinking of me the way I am of her: incessantly, obsessively, helplessly.'



pfft as if.

I agree, how could he have been so ridiculous! If they have humans around of course they have water & other essentials I can't believe he didn't go looking earlier.

The Hunt
The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda I won a copy of both books, The Hunt and The Prey through a giveaway on The Reading Date.

The Hunt is different than the other vampire books I’ve read. The world, the protag set up, the vampire society. I love how they justify humans aka “hepers” as being a barbaric and atavistic. It’s a dystopian horror with action, drama, suspense and a bit of instalove. Thankfully, the romance doesn’t steal the show though they are stupidly in love.

I just wish we had more background information. Like how the vamps came about and their society. It’s fascinating. It’s the best of traditional vamps with new tidbits that mix and match so well. Their social gestures and the armpit thing? OMG.

Gene’s life masquerading is terrifying and the consequences of his thinking like them is heartbreaking. It’s very well done. The scene with the little girl in kindergarten is still haunting me. Again, I’d love more information like how the hell they figured it out and got their supplies. But that wasn’t enough to hinder my enjoyment or yank me out of the story completely.

Thankfully, I have The Prey right here to read once I’m done with this review!
