Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Thriller)
Release Date: May 8, 2012
Humans are all but extinct, and the only reason Gene has survived as long as he has is because no one else knows that's what he is. Then he gets chosen along with a group of others to go on a hunt for the last humans. As his feelings for a girl, and fellow hunter, start to grow, so do the suspicions of the other blood thirsty hunters, and it becomes increasingly hard to hide that he's human and to keep himself off the menu.
That was the blurb from the book that grabbed me and didn't let go. Andrew Fukuda created a completely believable world in The Hunt. Gene is a well developed character. He spent his whole life hiding his humanity and pretending to be something he's not that when he finally sees real humans, he is completely disassociated from them and uses terms like "it" in reference to them. I enjoyed watching him grow as a human and come to terms with his humanity as the story progressed. With each page, you are living vicariously through Gene as you are kept on the edge of your seat, never knowing what's going to happen next.
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.
