Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming book releases that I’m eagerly waiting.
SYNOPSIS. In a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction, seventeen-year-old Gene has only managed to survive by painstakingly concealing his true species. If the bloodthirsty creatures surrounding him knew what he really was—a human—he would be devoured swiftly and terribly. When Gene is chosen to participate in the government-sponsored hunt for the last remaining humans, it thrusts him into the fight of his life—and into the path of a human girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible. Now, he must learn the art of the hunt and elude his fellow hunters whose suspicions about his true human nature are growing. But most importantly, Gene and the girl he loves must find a way to forge a life together in a brutal world that’s bent on their destruction.
With his propulsive plot and highly developed characters, readers will find it impossible to resist the vivid world Andrew Fukuda has created in this stunning standout debut. Readers craving a book that grips and mesmerizes them like The Hunger Games will love The Hunt.
Since the phenomenal Harry Potter books, most of the books today are written from female perspectives so I’m looking forward to this book because it’s taken from a male perspective. And the blurb by Andrea Cremer of the Nightshade trilogy also made me want to like it more, “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.” I want this intensifying book now in my hands!
