People who like medieval-style fantasies with wraiths, spirits, and even an attacking swamp tree will enjoy the story. I certainly did, and the excitement, adventure, and suspense will easily keep the reader's attention. Author Teresa Gaskins is a homeschooled teen who finished Hunted, her second published novel, when she was fifteen years old. However, as in the previous volume, the last page says, "Still not the end." So, we shall all just have to wait with bated breath until The Riddled Stone, Book 3, comes out to see how it all ends.
-- Wayne S. Walker, Home School Book Review
This book will certainly be intriguing for those who have read the author's first book, and it will more than likely keep readers interested in continuing the series. This book features more of the other characters' stories, especially Terrin's, and it was fascinating to learn more about each of them. There are many new languages unearthed, magic uncovered, and creatures unleashed ... I enjoyed the book and I am absolutely amazed at how such a young author can write so well. I can't wait to see what stories she publishes next.

About the Author
Homeschooled teen author Teresa Gaskins was creating stories before she could write. She enjoys a wide variety of fiction, fantasy has always been her favorite genre. She finished Hunted (her second published novel) when she was fifteen years old. Teresa has recently picked up archery, shooting with a recurve bow much like Terrin’s. Other interests include horse riding, computer programming, and making videos. She lives with her cat Cimorene (and the rest of her family) in rural Illinois, surrounded by corn and soybean fields.

Meanwhile, Chris’s sister Trillory is staying in the home of the Duke of Grith where Anthony serves as a knight, and is receiving much attention from the Duke’s handsome son Eric; both Trill and Eric find that they have a mutual talent. Also, sixteen-year-old Prince Brayden is sent instead of his older brother Tyler as a messenger to North Raec’s ambassador in South Raec in an effort to avoid a new war between the two kingdoms, but someone tries to murder him and Brayden must kill his assailant in self-defense. Do all these events have anything in common? Will Terrin, Nora, and Arnold ever meet up with Chris? And why does Terrin always have the feeling that they are being watched and hunted? As I said in my previous review of Banished, Hunted is also a captivating fantasy story with a well-thought-out plot.
Again, no sexuality or bad language is found; the euphemistic interjection “drat” is used once, and there is a reference to dancing. Those who object to the mention of any kind of magic will most likely want to avoid the book, but people who like medieval-style fantasies with wraiths, spirits, and even an attacking swamp tree will enjoy the story. I certainly did, and the excitement, adventure, and suspense will easily keep the reader’s attention. Author Teresa Gaskins is a homeschooled teen who finished Hunted, her second published novel, when she was fifteen years old. However, as in the previous volume, the last page says, “Still not the end.” So, we shall all just have to wait with bated breath until The Riddled Stone, Book 3, comes out to see how it all ends.
However, while the premise for the story is extremely interesting, the narrative and filler was just too heavy to keep my attention captive throughout the story. I felt like the pace lagged and action scenes were bogged down in extra detail. Other than that, however, I enjoyed the book and I am absolutely amazed at how such a young author can write so well. Her choice of vocabulary is simply astounding, and many authors more than twice her age can only dream to write as well as she can. I definitely see her going far in her writing career, and I can’t wait to see what stories she publishes next.
