Review: The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

The Hunt (The Hunt, #1)
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
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?

My Review:
    Well, this is def an interesting take on vampires, elbow sex, wrist scratching and all. It is so creepy the way the remaining humans (hepers) are treated it gave me goosebumps. There were a few issues I had with the plot (how are vamps made in this world if a bite kills hepers/humans) but they may be resolved in the next book. Issues aside, I couldn't put this book down.
    Gene, the main character is a human pretending to be a vampire. I don't see how he could pull it off-no facial hair, no expressions, no smell, no laughing, being able to see perfectly at night, etc. but it did make for some edge of your seat situations.
    There is some very unexpected romance, but it just added to the appeal and mystery of what will happen next, and how they will get there.
    I enjoyed being in Gene's head, he had a voice that pulled me in, and it was refreshing to read from a male point of view.
     This is fully violent, totally consuming, and there are plenty of twists and lots of action that kept me glued from start to surprising finish.

  1. Nice! I've been wanting to read this one :)

  2. I loved this book! Great review!

  3. I really liked this book! The action was intense, especially the constant waiting to see if Gene would get found out or not. I kept saying, "I'll read just one more chapter, well, okay, just ONE more."

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed this book. :) I couldn't finish it, it was too bizaare and I couldn't connect with any of the characters.
