If you're on the hunt for an original plot that's thought-provoking and chilling then The Hunt will be just up your street. Gene is human in a world where they've been made extinct other than those held in an Institute. For 17 years he's managed to keep all usual human emotions well hidden from those around him but now having been selected to go on the once a decade hunt of humankind he must somehow learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow competitors whose suspicions about what he really is grow. Praise has been heaped on this debut by the author of the Vampire Academy series among others for its brilliantly original theme.

Synopsis

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

Against all odds, 17-year-old Gene has survived in a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. The only remaining humans, or hepers as they are known, are housed in domes on the savannah and studied at the nearby Heper Institute. Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt.

Reviews

“Razor-sharp prose, a genius plot, and a searing pace that will have you ripping through the pages. An exceptional novel - I can’t wait for the sequel!” Alyson Noël, bestselling author of the Immortals series

“Chilling, inventive, and utterly unputdownable, The Hunt masterfully dances between horror and dystopian. Readers proceed... if you dare. This book will bleed into your nightmares.” Becca Fitzpatrick, bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga

“A book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. The Hunt is both terrifying and sublime, with every page evoking that fragile yet unyielding thing we call humanity.” Andrea Cremer, bestselling author of the Nightshade trilogy

“..one of the most brilliant, original books I’ve read in a very long time. This is the kind of book you’ll want to stay up all night to fi nish.” Richelle Mead, bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series
