The premise of the book is about an alien species coming to earth, and wishing to make a life for themselves alongside humans. Unsurprisingly, there are humans that are resistant to them, and cause the aliens to be hunted down. The aliens are shape shifters, able to mimic something they have previously touched, e.g. animals and humans. Because the aliens are being hunted, they try to save their species by mating with humans, and hybrids are born.
This book revolves around the hybrids, April in particular, and their fight for survival. An interesting concept, it caught my attention. I love how Ami brought the future to life, and how the hybrids could change shape. There were twists and turns that I couldn't always predict, which definitely make for an enjoyable read.
It took me a while to become fully engaged in the story. I ran across a number of grammar issues, which kept throwing me off. Also, there were times when I would become confused with what was going on or how something was being described. In addition, it took me a while to connect with the characters. I didn't engage with the main character as much as I kept hoping I would, but that may be due to the fact that she was young, and being thrust into a new and unexpected situation.
I see lots of potential with this book, and with the prequel and sequel that are scheduled to be released.
April is one such hybrid. Left at an early age with adoptive parents, her early normal life was spent surrounded by humans. By the time she reaches the age of nineteen, she notices changes within her. She also notices physical changes. She realizes that she is a shifter-she can transform into a wolf. She is introduced to her hybrid family. She also realizes that she is 'The Hunted'-hunted by the The Rogue Militia, who having eliminated the alien species, now focuses on exterminating the hybrids.
Ami Blackwelder takes us on a rip-roaring adventure in the future. I was immediately drawn in by April and this intriguing story. Her struggles to accept who she is, torn between her loyalties to her hybrid clan and to the humans in her life. This is a fast-moving story, never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and can't wait to read more from this awesome author.
Written in the first person from the perspective of April, an everyday student from 2060 whose life is spun completely around when she discovers that she is in fact a human /alien hybrid, which in 2060 means that she's suddenly little more than hunted game riding on time. With nicely digestible chapter lengths flowing freely throughout and dialogue set for the teenage reader upwards, Blackwelder is a name to be watched closely in this genre.
While the description of the book leads the reader to believe that they will be reading a love story, The Hunted of 2060 is much more than the common paranormal romance novels that are popular right now. While there is some romance throughout the book, I felt there was more focus on deeper topics like prejudice and betrayal. Personal growth is also a prominent part of the novel, which is clearly evident as the reader witnesses April come to terms with who she really is and finds her place within her clan and the human society. It was actually refreshing to read a paranormal novel that deals with these topics, and it really allows the reader to think and reflect on the repercussions that issues like prejudice and racism really have on society. Even though this book is set 50 years from now, the issues presented within the novel could easily apply to our society today.
There were only a few minor issues I had with the novel. First, some of the characters were difficult to keep track of.Read more ›
