It’s been soooooo long since I’ve done a book review, but I owed this one to Sarai Henderson, and had to share it! I reviewed one of her urban fantasy novels, Hunter, ages ago, but I was more than happy to be given the sequel to review! It’s a fun series for anyone who likes action-packed urban fantasy with lots of drama and engaging characters. Note: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. It in no way influenced my opinion or rating.
Six months ago, Hunter’s life turned upside-down. Seeker is dead, a tragedy that’s left Hunter empty and alone. Talon, an agency of super humans, now looks to her for leadership. When several agents are found dead with mysterious injuries, she has no choice but to track down the killer herself or risk the lives of her teammates and friends.
Hunter finds herself in Arizona, where things turn deadly, sending her right into the hands of the one person that could take everything from her—her mother.
Forced to do Mother’s bidding, Hunter does the only thing she can … she survives. One grueling day at a time. Will Hunter become the next victim of the killer who has taken so many of her friends’ lives? Will she become the murderous telepath Mother wants her to be? Or will she somehow find a way out of this deadly situation full of so many risks…
|I really enjoyed the first book,
Hunter, and found the sequel to be just as intense, exciting, and engaging as the first. It was great to return to such compelling characters and see old faces, as well as new. I’m a personal fan of a character named Electra, and once you meet her, it’s easy to see why.
There was great tension throughout, thanks to some truly dastardly villains. The action was visceral, brutal, and heart-pounding. There’s no question that our beloved telepaths had their hands full as they were trapped, experimented on, and put at risk in highly dangerous missions. And if the ending is anything to go by, things will only get more difficult for them in the future.
There were a couple odd spelling errors and some grammar issues, but none of it took me out of the story. I definitely recommend Hunter and it’s new sequel, Seeker, to anyone who’s looking for a fresh, new change on their Young Adult Urban Fantasy shelf. Check it out!
