    Having never heard of Andrew Fukuda before I was thrown into this novel knowing very little and was pleasantly surprised to find a gripping and suspenseful read that captivated me instantly. With a constantly evolving and interesting story this a novel that I found very hard to put down.

    As one of the few remaining humans - or hepers as they are known -Gene is forced to survive in a dangerous world conquered by flesh-eating, powerful predators. This task is made all the more difficult when Gene is selected to take part in the famous Heper Hunt; a hunt he may not survive..

    The main concept behind Fukuda's novel is incredibly inventive and the ever-changing story and plot makes 'The Hunt' a thoroughly thrilling and suspenseful journey. A must read for action fans!
