The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

It feels like a while since I gave a completely positive review for a YA book, but here it is!

The Hunt is the first book in a new series by Andrew Fukuda. It's strong, gripping and exciting from the word go.

'The world as we know it is populated by the dominant vampire people. Their over-hunting of humans (or hepers) over the years has resulted in a serious scarcity of new meat. As a result, the government organises a Hunt every decade or so. A small group of specially breed hepers are released into the wild for a select group of vampires to hunt down.

This time around 17-year old Gene is one of the lucky vampires selected to be apart of The Hunt. The only problem is, Gene is a heper too. A heper, who has up until now, kept a low profile & kept alive by pretending to be a vampire!

Initially I thought this was going to be another Hunger Games, but the Hunt doesn't go to plan and Fukuda throws in a few surprises and plot twists along the way to keep everyone guessing.

This is a May release - worth waiting for and worth looking out for.
In the meantime you can check our Fukuda's blog as he prepares to write book 2.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
