Editorial Reviews


Spellbound by this one! HUNTED gets my vote for the sharpest, most thought-provoking fantasy I ve read in a long time. It is hard not to fall in love with resilient, defiant Caitlyn, whose voice is as tough as it is pure.

Vividly realized and tightly wound, HUNTED builds tension on the edge of a knife. Its cut-glass style will hook you, and its brave and provocative themes are sure to stir up both emotions and conversation.

--Adele Griffin, Author of Where I Want to Be, National Book Award finalist, Kirkus Best Book, ALA Best Book --.

With its eerily contemporary themes, Hunted will set your pulse to pounding as Caitlyn struggles to cling to a faith in the basic goodness of humankind in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

--Cinda Williams Chima, The Demon King, 2011 ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults --.

In this suspenseful parable of prejudice and oppression, Rainfield creates unique, appealing characters we root for until the satisfying end.

--Pam Bachorz, author of Candor, 2011 YALSA Popular Paperback --.

From the Author

I drew on some of my abuse experience to write HUNTED, just as I did with SCARS; like my main character, Caitlyn, I know what it's like to have my life threatened, to be tortured, to face oppression, and to have to decide between hiding my true self or being who I am, even if that means danger to myself.

Format: Hardcover
The Hunted, is possibly one of the best dystopian young adult novels that I have ever read. It is such a unique story that speaks volumes about our society and our prejudices that I think this is a story that everyone needs to read. It will truly leave you breathless and awe inspired.

Caitlyn and her mom are on the run from persecution brought on from the fact that they are different in their society, they are Paras. Paras are humans that have paranormal abilities and they are persecuted and hated by the Normals because they are different. The world surrounding them is brutal and harsh filled with persecution and hatred that tries to engulf them.

I loved how Caitlyn was such a strong female character, and I admired her strength she had when she was faced with bigotry and hatred. She wants to fight back against the hatred, not by force, but by showing the Normals that the Paras are humans just like them. She knows that fighting against the Normals with the same force they have taken with the Paras would only make things worse instead of making things better.

Another thing I loved about this book was the powerful emotion Cheryl Rainfield was able to portray between the characters making you care about them. Combine the likeable characters with an action packed storyline, and you are left with an entertaining and inspiring read.

I cannot wait see what Cheryl Rainfield has in store for us with these characters, I look forward to reading more of her novels in the future.

JK Rowling had enticed me into her world of fantasy ... Stephen King lured me into his own bizarre domain ... Cheryl Rainfield didn't let me down! "Hunted" drew me in right from Page One. Having read of her own unsettled life experience, I found it remarkable that this author successfully and so believably articulated such intense feelings of love and loyalty along with those of insecurity, fear, hate and violence. Cheryl Rainfield's characters are completely realistic and her message is convincingly clear. I believe that this book should be required reading for high school students, and I can't help but envision it as a movie. Hunted was indeed one of the most compelling novels I've ever read.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Always YA at Heart on February 23, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Hunted by Cheryl Rainfield is a unique reading experience. If you enjoy dystopian and the paranormal, then you will enjoy Hunted. Caitlyn lives in a society where she and others like her are persecuted for being different, for being paranormals. She lost her father in a riot when she was young, and her brother disappeared at the same time. She and her mother have been on the run, moving from place to place, to avoid being captured and Caitlyn being forced into a harsh and painful life of servitude as a para slave because of her unique psychic abilities. Caitlyn has finally made friends in her new school, she has fallen for Alex, a boy who is a normal, and finally finds out the truth surrounding her brother, all the while being constantly pursued by the Government and Paratroopers whose only goal is to capture and enslave her, and those like her.

Hunted is filled with endless surprises, adventure, and heartache, as Caitlyn is forced to make choices that not only affect her, but those she loves, other paranormals like her, as well as the those who persecute her. Cheryl has done an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, and has managed to throw a bit of romance in the mix. Though the book is entirely fictional, it is eye-opening in that it brings awareness to the discrimination and isolation that are prevalent in society today, because people are afraid of those who are "different."

If you enjoy the action and adventure found in dystopian centered YA fiction, combine that with the paranormal, and a bit of romance to boot, you will enjoy Hunted. As a bonus, Cheryl also shares at the end of the book how her own experiences and the things she has suffered inspired the story.

Format: Hardcover
This was one of those books that I could have easily read in one sitting. Murr! It was very easy to become engrossed in Rainfield's novel. Her characters are believable, the world is strongly built, and the plot pulls you in until you almost feel like it's real. If you are looking for a YA title that will leave you breathless, I suggest you give this book a try. =^-^=

The thing that stood out the most for me with this story was how skillfully Rainfield evoked my emotions as I was reading. Several times I felt my fur stand on end in anticipation as events took a dramatic turn and there was even a scene which caused me to yowl in anger at a character. It's not often that I get emotionally caught up in a story, at least not to the point where I find myself holding my breath until the characters reach safety. Cameron literally checked twice to make sure I was actually breathing when I first started reading (I made sure to hide from her the rest of the time until I was done).

I also loved the cast of characters that Rainfield created. I found myself empathizing with Caitlyn, both loathing and pitying Daniel, enjoying the sweetness that was Rachel, and generally liking Alex, though I'll admit I was skeptical about him at first. Rainfield's supporting characters were also well-developed. Becca, Ilene, Mrs. Vespa, etc., all possessed qualities which made them memorable. There wasn't a single character who didn't have something to offer in the book. No one was just a "filler" character.

On a side note of things that I enjoyed, I had to purr over Rainfield's message that books are important. There are a couple of times where Caitlyn recalls her father telling her that reading makes the mind stronger.
