Waiting on Wednesday: The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I swore I was off my vampire kick once I finished Infinite Days. Well, I fibbed. This book sounds incredible in a way that I haven't thought of before. While it does remind me of the recent movie Daybreakers, this just calls me. It's almost like I have to read it to see how the main character deals with his situation & overcomes his abnormality. The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda is due May 8th & I am ecstatic!

The Hunt coverDon’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?

Tasty right? I really hope that these are the proper vampires of my childhood nightmares & that their prey are just as meek as I imagine. I'm sure that makes me sound like a horrible person, but I do love a good horror story on the occasion.

What are you waiting on this week?
