The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Publication Date: May 8th, 2012
Genre: Young Adult
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?
MacMillan Audio sent me The Hunt's audiobook sample to share with all of you. I loved this book and I think it would be interesting to hear the absolute and seemingly abject terror that Gene and the other characters felt through every page of this heart-pounding book. Have a listen, y'all and let me know what you think. :)
