Review: The Hunt

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

Title: The Hunt

Author: Andrew Fukuda

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin

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?

After Gene's family dies, he's on his own. Living his life as an impostor, with no one look after him but himself. But he knows the rules like the back of his hand. He has to, to blend in so well with them. To not be mauled by them. 
Everything goes as planned until he is chosen to take part in 'The Hunt'. 

At first I thought this book was about werewolves, but I was pleasantly surprised it's about vampires! It is disgusting in some parts with the blood and saliva dripping down their chins. They eat like ravenous wild animals. But I loved it, lol! 

It has a male's point of view, which I don't see very often.

The end of the book left a lot of questions, with that cliffhanger ending. 

4/5 Stars
