Description

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? ""show more

Review quote

"With razor-sharp prose, a genius plot, and a searing pace that will have you ripping through the pages, Fukuda creates a dark and savage post-apocalyptic world where humans are nearly extinct and love manages to bloom despite all the odds stacked against it. An exceptional novel--I can't wait for the sequel!" --Alyson Noel, #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of the Immortals Series "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 with all night to finish!" --Richelle Meade, #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series "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, "New York Times "bestselling author of the Nightshade Trilogy "Chilling, inventive, and utterly unputdownable. Readers, proceed...if you dare. This book will bleed into your nightmares." --Becca Fitzpatrick, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Hush, Hush" "In this terrifying and inventive adventure, Fukuda turns the vampire novel inside out...With an exciting premise fueled by an underlying paranoia, fear of discovery, and social claustrophobia, this thriller lives up to its potential while laying groundwork for future books." -"Publishers Weekly" "The story is bona fide creepy, and as it builds to its cliffhanger ending (which delivers quite a good twist), readers will be torn between hoping Gene can maintain the ruse and that he will take on the bloodsuckers already. As revolutions go, this one is well worth keeping on your radar." - "Booklist""Fukuda takes the feeling of isolation that dominates adolescence and builds a world around it in a novel where the tension rarely slackens. He turns up the violence a notch from THE HUNGER GAMES with language that is as graphic as it is eloquent. Readers will hanker for answers as they'll discoshow more
