4.0 out of 5 stars Hunted by a good read!, 30 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunted by the Others (Mass Market Paperback)
I read a bit of urban fantasy, though I do find it's got to take my fancy, but I liked the sound of 'Hunted by the Others' and duly ordered a copy. I finally got around to starting it on a Sunday evening and finished it just two days later... It's rare that I finish anything that quickly, but I found the book compelling and just had to keep reading.

There's rarely a dull moment in this book and the end of each chapter had me turning the page for the next. The book is written from Shiarra's perspective, so we get to read her inner thoughts on the oh-so-charming vampire Royce, Chaz (her ex-boyfriend who happens to be a werewolf) and other people around her. I found it easy to sympathise and connect with Shiarra - she's a human who's desperate for money to pay off the ever-increasing bills (we've all been there, right?) and as much as she doesn't want to take on this case, she doesn't have much of a choice. She's frightened of dealing with the `Others' and I would be too! Shiarra finds herself getting deeper and deeper and can see no way out of it (that doesn't end with her or her family/friends coming to harm).

I found myself pulled in and immersed in the story, compelled to turn the pages and read on. The story was fast paced, with action and tension, and even some humour. Over all, `Hunted by the Others' was an enjoyable read and I'd definitely recommend it!

I'm looking forward to meeting Shiarra and co' in the next book (Yes, `Hunted by the Others' is just the first in the series). `Taken by the Others' is due for release in January 2010 and I can't wait, having already read the teaser at the end of `Hunted by the Others'!
