1ST in the trilogy, followed by "the Prey" & then "the Trap". It was interesting & a bit scary, but true - there are a lot of holes in the story (the biggest for me is that no girls past puberty could ever survive). It sounds too unbelievable that Gene would survive for such a long time. I am curious to what happens to him and his "sig other" in the next books. & yes I can see why some reviewers called this book "Hunger Games with vampires"

This book was very interesting i had a lot of fun reading this book. My favorite part is when Gene got chosen to be in the hunt.

I found the first chapter very interesting, but as I got further into the novel, I fell out of interest. It might have had to do with the dialogue or the lack thereof. It might have had to do with the fact that I had guessed some of the key plot points by the second chapter, but I found myself skimming the rest of the book rather than savoring it. It could have been all the sobbering! Ha! Too bad.

This was pretty original in the sense that the author (Andrew Fukuda) made his own rules up about vampires and how they operate. The lead character certainly has A dangerous lifestyle living amongst the vampire world from day to day. I really liked the idea of how the story of the hunt actually came into play, it would certainly be A great contest for vampires indeed. The twists in the story were kind of predictable though. I saw most things coming, but not too far ahead of the story. The idea of how the humans or "The hepers" as they call them were viewed through the vampires eyes and how they really were was a pretty cool comparison.
I won't tell how I feel about the ending as I will leave that to you the reader. :) Overall this was A great read. I read the book in one sitting pretty much as it's not very long, but I couldn't put it down either.

Vampires are now the normal society and humanity is just about extinct. However, there are some humans who have learned to blend in unnoticed and live among the vampires. An intriguing idea, unique among the many many vampire novels out there. Unfortunately Andrew Fukuda doesn't quite make it work. Way too many holes in the plot and it seems like the author just winged it in places. (Warning - spoiler alert) When the main character was surrounded and there was simply no way out he somehow found superhuman strenght to jump over the vampires - described in the whole book as fastly superior in speed and strength. I can suspend my disbelief when a novel is just that good but the Hunt doesn't make the cut.

Numerous plot holes through which you could ride a very large horse, but I remain curious how the series will turn out.

This book was recommended to me as a Hunger Games similar sort of story. It is definitely similar but not anywhere near the ease of reading and story lines of Hunger Games and its series. Started out slow with some choppy writing but picked up mid-way through. I wanted to find out what happened and I will want to read the next in the series when it comes out in 2013, but it won't be the first book I pick up.

“I remember the Hunt from ten years ago. How for months afterward I didn’t dare fall asleep because of the nightmares that would invade my mind: hideous images of an imagines Hunt, wet and violent and full of blood. Horrific cries of fear and panic, the sound of flesh ripped and bones crushed puncturing the night stillness.”
