5.0 out of 5 stars A Rip Roaring Ride, 6 Sep 2013
Bounty Hunter had been on my to-read list for the longest time, so my expectations were high. Super high. And Bounty Hunter more than exceeded those expectations.

I was drawn in from the very first page, where we meet our protagonist, Kai Koson.

June soon begins to realise that she didn't know her uncle as well as she'd thought, and so begins an extraordinary journey of discovery.
However, the story itself is much more complex. Soon after Finn's death, June learns that he had a secret boyfriend, Toby. June is fiercely jealous, upset that there is a part of Finn's life she wasn't privy to; to compound her misery, her… Read more
