Back Blurb:

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?

My Review:

     The Hunt was another impulse buy (everyone needs some impulsive action in their life). My library was taking to long to get it in and I just didn't want to wait anymore. 

      While this was a good book, it was not the greatest. Rarely do I find a vampire novel that I absolutely love.  So saying that this was a good book is, in it's own way, a very big compliment.  And when I can scavenge up enough money to purchase the other 2 in the series I will.
     I really liked how Mr. Fukunda described a vampire's death in sunlight. Let's just say that he had a way with the words and that I found myself shuddering at certain times. lol. 
     I recommend this book to lovers of: The Farm
PS--I figured it out!!!! hahahahaha*fist pump*
