Additional Information

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?

The take-home: While the book may not pull you in from the start, it's a good book on the whole and starts a great series that's well worth reading. Even for people who aren't fans of supernatural books, it's still worth considering, and I think it's the kind of book/series that's perfect to bring along while travelling.

More detailed review: The beginning of the book wasn't that great, but it also wasn't that bad -- just a little slow. The book eventually gets much more interesting, and it's a great series to stick with. Andrew Fukuda builds a very interesting world during this book, and as other reviewers have pointed out, you're not reading about typical vampires.

On that note, I think Fukuda pokes a little too much fun at "typical" vampire books, and at points, instead of just trying to create a compelling world, it seems like he tries to set things up purely to contrast / contradict what he thinks would be in a ``normal'' vampire book. These... Read more
This is a rapid page-turner. The story grabs you and pulls you along with it like a strong current. It's not only a great story but great writing. Fukuda describes things like a poet, but not a snobby one that no one can understand. It was so good that I wrote down some quotes.

"Because despite my near identical physiological similarity with them, there are seismic fundamental differences that lie beneath the frail and deceptive surface of similarity."

"He can whisper a rat to death with the razor-sharp incisions of his carefully nuanced words."

"The paper is now more crinkled than a smashed mirror, the words and phrases hung up in it like insects caught in a spider's web."

I can understand all these. They paint pictures in my mind and don't detract from the pacing of the story. Sometimes I get the urge to skip ahead to find out what happens because I just have to know, but the writing is too good to miss.

The Hunt in a nutshell: in a society where vampires are just common people and actual people are bordering extinction (or already there, for all the masses now), a heper - which is the way humans are referred to in this world - named Gene must survive amongst enemies that, had they knowledge of who he is, would jump at him and tear him to bits faster than you can say "Inconsiderate". In this land, there is a Ruler that, in order to better his numbers with the population, sporadically throws a contest called The Hunt, in which a few randomly chosen lucky people are to hunt down Hepers and kill them.

There's more: vampires in The Hunt aren't like the ones you've heard about before. They roam at night and sleep by day, yes, and of course they crave human - forgive me, heper - blood more than anything, but that's when where their characteristics diverge. These vampires have no facial expressions - excluding the mouth-open-wide-with-fangs-at-display-while-sneering one - they... Read more
