“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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 on The Hunt
“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)

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..Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!Read more ›
