The Hunt is my favorite book of the year. Actually, the whole series is: The Hunt, The Prey, The Trap.
I love vampire books anyway, but this series definately is the most inventive and brilliant I’ve read in a long time. The world of The Hunt starts out completely different, the first two sentences draw us into the frightening life Gene leads: “There used to be more of us. I’m certain of this.”
Also, the humans are called “hepers” and the vampires are the “people”. I love the out-of-the-box creativity. Gene thinks he is the last human in the world, and although lonely, keeps going about his daily routine of pretending he’s one of the “people”.
I recommend this series highly to anyone interested in vampires, dystopian societies, or in need of a thrilling and original read.
