Ariane Tucker has finally escaped GTX, the research facility that created her. While on the run, Zane Bradshaw is the only person she can trust. He knows who-and what-she is and still wants to be part of her life.
But accepting Zane’s help means putting him in danger.
Dr. Jacobs, head of GTX, is not the only one hunting for Ariane. Two rival corporations have their sights set on taking down their competition. Permanently. To protect Zane and herself, Ariane needs allies. She needs the other hybrids. The hybrids who are way more alien and a lot less human. Can Ariane win them over before they turn on her? Or will she be forced to choose sides, to decide who lives and who dies?
First, I am so sorry about the title, I just think I am so clever.
This was one of those books that I do not even remember starting because I flew right from the ending of The Rules into The Hunt. I was so impatient to start it that I downloaded this book right onto my iPhone to read on the 8 hour drive home from my cruise.
Seriously, start this series and be prepared for non-stop reading until it is over. Kade does a wonderful job at sucking the reader in, and keeping them hostage, until her last word is written. Not that it is a bad thing in any way, I literally could not stop reading.
The characters, Ariane and Zane, are so well developed. The chapters alternated between the two characters views really enhancing the overall plot. You get to delve into the minds of both Ariane and Zane to experience their feelings and thinking patterns. It is especially great when an event may overlap in both chapters because it allows for the reader to see two different points of views and emotions.
The misunderstandings in this book are heart piercing. I kept saying “gahhh no, don’t do it you do not understand” but they could not hear me. I was so into the book that I felt like I was there and the decisions they made would affect me.
I have so many thoughts I can’t seem to get them all down. The romance in this book might have fallen short for those of you out there who are romance genre people. But personally, I like romance in little dashes so this book was perfect. Not to mention that it was pretty strained; the romance was at an ‘I don’t know what to do: to act or not to act on my feelings because I am an alien’ kind of point. So it made for an awkward situation that was like nails on a chalk board. They both want it but would not act. I pretty much loved it, like when you catch someone who tripped.
So I pretty much need a third book, like now. Stacey Kade needs to get a move on in the most polite way possible. I mean, who could live without a book that stars an fragile, butt-kicking alien who also happens to have weird clone like siblings and a hot almost boyfriend-ish thing? Certainly not I.
