Book Summary

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?

Ages 12+

Media Reviews

"With an exciting premise fueled by an underlying paranoia, fear of discovery, and social claustrophobia, this thriller lives up to its potential while laying the groundwork for future books. Ages 12–up." - Publishers Weekly

"While the worldbuilding is thin and frequently nonsensical, this grotesque and bloody construction of a vampire world will appeal to readers who've been craving gore over romance with their vampires." - Kirkus Reviews

"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

"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 Noël, #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

"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
