Book Description

From author Andrew Fukuda comes The Trap, the explosive finale to The Hunt trilogy--perfect for fans of The Hunger Games!

After barely escaping the Mission alive, Gene and Sissy face an impossible task: staying alive long enough to stop an entire world bent on their destruction. Bound on a train heading into the unknown with the surviving Mission girls, Gene, Sissy, David, and Epap must stick together and use everything they have to protect each other and their only hope: the cure that will turn the blood-thirsty creatures around them into humans again. Now that they know how to reverse the virus, Gene and Sissy have one final chance to save those they love and create a better life for themselves. But as they struggle to get there, Gene's mission sets him on a crash course with Ashley June, his first love . . . and his deadliest enemy.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gene and Sissy’s story becomes downright disturbing in this finale to what has been an unpredictable trilogy. With the knowledge that they hold the key to reversing the dusker condition, Gene and Sissy find themselves back in the Palace, making an uneasy bargain with the Ruler, who is desperate to keep some secrets of his own. A dramatic confrontation with Ashley June, Gene’s first love, who was left behind when they escaped The Dome and who subsequently turned into a dusker herself, sets up a reveal that turns the entire series on its head. It has been difficult to pin this series down to a specific genre because the plot twists keep changing the landscape from paranormal to dystopian to horror. The duskers are driven by a desire to eat the humans, which is as unfathomable as their methods are cruel, and each moment that Gene and Sissy can outlast them is a breathtaking victory. The Hunt trilogy has lived up to the promise of the first book and delivered shocks and drama with every turn of the page. Grades 9-12. --Kara Dean


Praise for The Hunt series by Andrew Fukuda

"Downright disturbing...The Hunt trilogy has lived up to the promise of the first book and delivered shocks and drama with every turn of the page." –Booklist

“With razor-sharp prose, a genius plot, and a searing pace that will have you ripping through the pages, Fukuda creates a dark and savage post-apocalyptic world where humans are nearly extinct and love manages to bloom despite all the odds stacked against it. An exceptional novel—I can’t wait for the sequel!” —Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Immortals Series

 “One of the most brilliant, original books I’ve read in a very long time. This is the kind of book you’ll want to stay up with all night to finish!” —Richelle Meade, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series

“A book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. The Hunt is both terrifying and sublime, with every page evoking that fragile, yet unyielding thing we call humanity.”— Andrea Cremer, New York Times bestselling author of the Nightshade Trilogy

“Chilling, inventive, and utterly unputdownable. Readers, proceed…if you dare. This book will bleed into your nightmares.” —Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of Hush, Hush

“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 Gene's struggle to determine his sense of worth and identity after leaving his vampire life behind.” – School Library Journal

 “In this terrifying and inventive adventure, Fukuda turns the vampire novel inside out…With an exciting premise fueled by an underlying paranoia, fear of discovery, and social claustrophobia, this thriller lives up to its potential while laying groundwork for future books.” –Publishers Weekly

 “The story is bona fide creepy, and as it builds to its cliffhanger ending (which delivers quite a good twist), readers will be torn between hoping Gene can maintain the ruse and that he will take on the bloodsuckers already. As revolutions go, this one is well worth keeping on your radar.” – Booklist

“Fukuda takes the feeling of isolation that dominates adolescence and builds a world around it in a novel where the tension rarely slackens.  He turns up the violence a notch from THE HUNGER GAMES with language that is as graphic as it is eloquent.  Readers will hanker for answers as they'll discover a kindred spirit in Gene, who so eloquently describes the feeling of being an island in the middle of a vast ocean.” –Maximum Shelf

 “I was blown away from the first chapter all the way to the end.  Fukuda did an excellent job turning the world of vampirism upside down. Wonderful descriptions, great imagination and very tight characters.  If you love vampire worlds, then read this book. You will not want to put this one down!” –Night Owl Reviews (Reviewer Top Pick)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
There is no other word for this book, really. It completely blew my mind to pieces, and I swear, I will never fully recover from reading it! I liked the first book (The Hunt), though I had a few issues with the sketchy plot line (I think we all remember the armpit scene?). I really loved the second book (The Prey) - the writing improved a lot, the characters were developed further and with more care, and the plot line itself was action packed and completely breathtaking. But the third book (The Trap)? Lord, the third book rendered me speechless. After I finished reading it, I sat in my *reading chair* for hours, staring out the window with a dumb (SERIOUSLY dumb) expression on my face, and with my tea cold and long forgotten. I could not comprehend what just happened. I could not wrap my mind around the brilliant ending. I could not get over the genius of it all. Like I said. Insanity.

It's no secret that the best twists are the ones you don't see coming. Andrew Fukuda is a master of these kind of twists. Not only did he do a fantastic job tying all the loose ends together and answering all the questions that we've been asking since book one in the series, but he did it with such ease, confidence and boldness.. I absolutely LOVED it. Not to mention that I totally did not see any of it coming (and I'm usually one to predict all the major plot twists and big reveals way ahead). Seriously, I can not stress enough how fabulous the conclusion to this awesome series is. I kid you not, it's the best final book in a series I've ever read.

Since I don't want to spoil all the gasp-worthy surprises, I will not be discussing the plot of The Trap in detail. One thing I gotta say, though, is..

5.0 out of 5 stars Best. Ending. Ever. December 22, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am sure you all think there is nothing original about a vampire story. Well then, my friends, you haven't taken a chance on Andrew Fukuda and his The Hunt series! These vampires will terrify you and surprise you with each page. It started with The Hunt and it ends with The Trap, but you won't be ready to let go!

Gene, Sissy, David and Epap made it out of the "sanctuary" but they had no idea they were headed to the palace full of vampires. When the train arrives, there are too many kids to fit into the elevator. Those left behind get to know first hand what happens when you don't follow the rules of the Palace. And it is vicious. Those in the elevator fly upwards to a space full of human children just waiting for their time to be called. When the alarm goes off, they have a few short seconds to get into an enclave before the vampires are allowed in. If they are caught outside, their fate is swift but vicious. When the alarm blows, they all make it into Enclaves, but the ruler is clearly interested in Sissy. Then he notices Gene: the boy who masqueraded as a vampire for years and proved them all fools.

When Gene's enclave goes shooting through the walls, he is sure he is being sent to the ruler's rooms to be devoured, but what he doesn't expect is to be taken to a secret laboratory where he is informed of the true nature of his and Sissy's lives. As the Origin, their blood combined cures the vampire plague, turning any vampire back into a human. But Ashley June, the former human who sacrificed her humanity to save Gene is stopping them from working on a widespread cure. Having survived the scorching trek from the mission, she has called a press conference to tell the city about the Palace's secret stash of Hepers.

Gene and Sissy have struggled time and time again to escape the Duskers, find Gene’s father and save the world. I loved how loyal these two are to their friends. They are fearless, and yet vulnerable allowing me to connect with them. We see growth in Gene as he struggles with life and death situations. He must confront his first love Ashley Jane again, and make difficult choices. Sissy is incredibly brave. She is very comfortable with who she is and what her beliefs are. She just rocked as our heroine. Ashley Jane was creep-tastic, and was a pivotal character in the overall plot for she holds many answers. While there is a romance, and one that has been obvious it was not center stage as the action and plot took over. I mean who has time for kissing when you have Duskers wanting to eat you? The Duskers are creepy and one of the most original vampire species that I’ve ever read about. They lose complete control when they scent a Heper (human) and they turn into a drooling, mindless, pack of wolves. The advisers and ruler at the Palace were freakishly creepy and gave me the shivers.

The entire Hunt series has increased in intensity, with reveals, and questions as Fukuda cleverly steered us towards this final chapter in The Trap. While we didn’t see the stranger side of the Duskers, with their scratching wrists we did see their animalistic side, and it was horrifying. The scenes at the Palace still make me shiver. The search for Gene’s father and the cure has been a central theme throughout the novel and the driving force for Gene and Sissy’s incredible journey. After the big reveal at the end of The Prey regarding the origin and Genesis project, I thought I knew where this ending was headed. Fukuda you clever, wicked man…well done!
