The birds are flying. The birds are flocking. The birds know where to find her.

One man is driven by a Voice that isn't his. It's killing his sanity and wrestling with it over and over like a jackal with a bone. He has one goal.

To find the girl with a Voice like his own. She has no one to defend her now. The hunt is on.

But in an Inn by the sea, a boy with no tongue and no Voice gathers his warriors. Albus must find Lacey ... before the Other does. And finish the work his sister, Ruby began.

 

I have been SO excited to read HUNTED, ever since I closed the final page of DEFENDER (see my review here).  If you follow me on Twitter you are no-doubt aware of my love for that book. So when I was kindly sent a HUNTED ARC by Headline, I started it ASAP and proceeded to eke it out for as long as possible, because I wasn’t ready to leave the world and Todd’s writing for another year.

As you’ve probably gleaned from this first paragraph, HUNTED did not disappoint!

Todd has taken the world and characters we became familiar with in book one and expanded in the best possible ways – new characters, new concepts, new relationships, new dangers. I could easily have swallowed this book whole, but, like I said, I needed to savour it – every last word!

As ever, Todd strikes the perfect balance between action and character-building, allowing us to get to know those characters that she inevitably puts through the mill. I swear she took my heart and stomped on it at one point.

What’s so delicious about this book is that, although we start to gain some information, some more understanding of this dystopian world, by the end we are hungrier than ever for more answers.

I know I’ve not mentioned much about the plot here but that’s intentional. This is an action-packed sequel that absolutely lives up to the very high standards of book one, and is a story that you need to uncover for yourself!
