Gr 8 Up-A sequel to The Hunt (St. Martin's Griffin, 2012). After narrowly escaping from the Dome/Heper Institute, Gene, Sissy, and the gang are fighting to survive on the river while being pursued by vampire hunters. Guided by directions from the Scientist, they are hoping to reach "The Land of Milk and Honey, Fruit and Sunshine." Making their way into the mountains, the group discovers a solitary settlement, a sort of utopia called "The Mission." Governed by the elders, life at the Mission is regimented and controlled, especially for girls, but everyone appears happy and content. This regulated society and a nonexistent threat from duskers cause Gene and Sissy to realize that things are not what they seem. Looking for the truth puts them at risk and their lives are again in danger. The action-packed plot is full of suspense and intrigue. The combination of postapocalyptic/dystopian setting and vampires is fresh and gripping. The characters are well developed, and Fukuda captures well Gene's struggle to determine his sense of worth and identity after leaving his vampire life behind.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

Fukuda delivers a sequel that is just as taut, menacing, and devastating in its consequences as The Hunt (2012). Gene, Sissy, and the other “hepers” are still trying to outrun the “duskers,” who will hunt the humans to the point of their own destruction just for the chance of devouring them. Gene and Sissy decode the clues the Scientist—now revealed to be Gene’s father—has left for them, and after a hair-raising escape, they find a hidden community of humans. The Mission is welcoming and idyllic, and the fleeing children think they have finally found a refuge. But Gene and Sissy learn some truths about the relationship between humans and duskers, and life in the Mission creates more questions than answers. The sinister atmosphere of the Mission is just as consuming as the terror of Gene’s embedded existence among the duskers, proving that ultimately humanity’s greatest threat is usually itself. There is almost no time to catch a breath, and with another bombshell ending setting up the next book, readers should expect to stay up late finishing this one.
