Storm is born into a world of secrets - an island no one visits, names no one will say, and deaths that no one will talk about. The answers are locked in his species' troubled past, guarded by the fierce creasia cats. But when Storm's friends are threatened, he decides that he must act, pitting himself against the creasia to show that they can be resisted and outwitted. To prove his point, he must stay one step ahead of clever hunters, who have more to lose than Storm imagines.

Sometimes, they eat each other.

Hunter's Unlucky is a grand story about friendships, loyalty, and standing up for others. It is engaging, exciting, and emotional. The characters are not absolute in terms of who is good and who is evil. Some of the antagonists are interesting, three-dimensional, and sympathetic characters that you'll find yourself wanting to know more about. You may even find yourself rooting for them along some with the protagonists. The character bonds are deep and heartfelt.
The narrator, Rish Outfield, is great. Give it a try!
