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 Noel, #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, on The Hunt "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) on The Hunt "

The Prey is an unexpected but fair followup to The Hunt, the first book in what will eventually be a trilogy. Though the basic elements of The Hunt and the main character remain, so much changes from ... Read full review

I know! I am so weird. Cause I like the book. It really is a bit fascinating reading a different kind of vampires. Where they are not sparkly and totally ran out of humanity. Incapable of love and ... Read full review
