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?
This book was so good and so well written, but also super weird and gross. Yet …I couldn't put it down.
There were some slow moments, but the middle to end made up for it. I felt like I was watching the time waiting for a bomb to go off with each page. The Hunt has tons of surprises. I was so curious to see how Gene would get himself out of the hunt. My heart was pounding along with his every time he came close to getting discovered. I kept thinking to myself “okay this is it, they know”. It was one heck of a rollercoaster ride. And when I say this book is full of surprises, I mean it. Things were being revealed left and right and each time it left me with my mouth open. This was a very unique story. I haven’t read anything like it and I am really happy I read it.
I really hope there is a sequel in the making or I'll scream if I don't get to find out what happened to certain characters and to Gene. So good!
