Wow. I was hoping, when I bought this book that it would be one of those secretly amazing books no one has discovered yet. Major disappointment. The writing feels like a story from a 7th grader. The characters are not believable at all and the choices they make have no reasoning behind them. The events progress weirdly through time, almost too quickly, and the sentence structure is poor. It is rare I don't finish a book, especially one with shape shifting, but I could not get into the book at all. Every mistake would jump out of me, jarring me out of the attempt at a story. This book is not worth your time, you won't be able to get past the horrible writing to read the not-that-interesting story.

Upon reading the description of this book, I was very interested in reading it. It didn't sound like anything I've read before, which was a breath of fresh air.

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.

Transport yourself fifty years into the future-to 2060. To a world with humans and a new species, a hybrid species, created by the interbreeding of humans and an alien species which arrived on Earth in 2020. The Rogue Militia, an organization set up to destroy them, exterminated the whole species. What remains in 2060, are the hybrid survivors, a species of shifters.

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.

Format: Paperback
"The Hunted of 2060" cuts instantly to the chase suiting well the teen-and-above audience that it is pitched at. Paced briskly from the outset, Ami Blackwelder creates a futuristic blend of sci-fi and teen-female-adventure. However, this novel has more about it than the recent blitz of teen vampire novels. You can see how Blackwelder has taken the time to project a fully plausible future based on the best and worst of current society that we can all relate to without it being in any way Dystopian.
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.

Engaging storyline with elements of various genres ; futuristic, scy-fi, paranormal and romance. The main character is a female hybrid named April and the story is told from her perspective. April was caught in a life threatening conflict between the hybrids and the humans. I enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the shape-shifting. This book could benefit from good proof-reading or editing as there are many errors which caused some distraction.

What can I say... I LOVED THIS BOOK! The author created such interesting characters and villains. I loved how every character had a back story to them. This allowed you to connect more to who they were and why they behaved in a certain way. I was upset when the main character's "who knows what might have been" guy died =\ I actually liked him. Even if he was too sure of himself.
