'Brilliant and addictive . . . Think of The Hunger Games with vampires' Richelle Mead, author of the bestselling Vampire Academy series
Against all odds, 17-year-old Gene has survived in a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It's the only way to stay alive in a world of night.
Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt. When Gene is selected to be one of the combatants he must learn the art of the hunt - but also elude his fellow competitors as suspicions about his true nature grow.
His need to survive is stronger than ever - but is it worth the cost of his humanity?
'Chilling and inventive' Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the NYT bestselling series Hush, Hush
'Razor-sharp prose, a genius plot, and a searing pace' Alyson Noë?l, author of the NYT bestselling series The Immortals
'Grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go... terrifying and sublime' Andrea Cremer, author of The Inventor's Secret series
Also by Andrew Fukuda:
In this terrifying and inventive adventure, Fukuda (Crossing) turns the vampire novel inside out by featuring a protagonist who's "only human" in a world where bloodthirsty, nocturnal predators reign supreme. Seventeen-year-old Gene is a "heper," one of a near-extinct breed of humans, forced to maintain an extensive routine (betraying no emotions, avoiding sweating, shunning friendships, etc.) to blend in with his classmates, who would devour him on the spot if they knew the truth. When he's chosen by lottery to participate in the last great Heper Hunt, his masquerade and very life are at stake. Only unexpected allies, like the beautiful Ashley June and the hepers he'll be hunting, may give him a chance to survive. The word "vampire" is never used, with the novel's two races presented as an alternative product of parallel evolution in a blend of science fiction and horror. With an exciting premise fueled by an underlying paranoia, fear of discovery, and social claustrophobia, this thriller lives up to its potential while laying the groundwork for future books. Ages 12 up.
Jako interesantna ideja, lagana i zabavna a mracna i kompleksna u isto vreme.
Nisam mogao da je pustim iz ruku.Jedva cekam da procitam nastavak...
I spent the nights awake reading this
This book was amazing to say the least. A different tale on vampires, with plot twists here there and everywhere. I couldn't put this book down! It's brilliant read.
A great easy to read book that was a bit more of a twist and tale story than your run of the mill vampire story. Highly recommended
