My quote for this week comes from The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda, pg 119.
…Who needs training, anyway, just chase down the damn things and eat them.” He peels back his sleeve like a snake shedding skin and delicately scratches his bony wrist.
I’ve had this book on my shelf for a while, and I really don’t know why it took me so long to read it. It’s fantastic. Dark and horror-filled with blood-thirsty vampires, none of this cute, handsome stuff. These vamps are terrifying. The story is told from a guy’s POV – Gene – as one of the few hepers (humans) left alive. He tries to blend into society and school by pretending to be one of them, until he’s selected to attend the annual Heper Hunt. So you can imagine the situation this places him into. This is an action-packed story bleeding with tension and I really, really loved Fukuda’s writing style. He doesn’t go too deep into world building, but gives us enough to know what’s going on. I’ll be jumping into book two soon.
