Review:

The Hunted is the second book in a series called The Hunters Saga by Heidi Angell; however, it can be read as a standalone. I found The Hunted to be an interesting take on werewolves, and I loved reading a story that was very different from the other werewolf – themed novels that I have read.  The werewolves in this novel were rugged and exciting, and they made me fall in love with this mythology all over again!

The world that Angell has created is original and vibrant, and I enjoyed her descriptions of her characters and the setting of her story.  It was clear to me that she made sure not to include any filler in her novel, and it was because of this that her story was enjoyable to read.  I have read another series by Angell, and I have to say that I like The Hunters Saga even more because I can see how she has grown as an author.  My only critique is that some parts of this novel were too wordy, but they didn’t deter from my enjoyment of the story.

But my favorite part about The Hunters was how diverse Angell’s cast of characters was.  Fury ended up being my favorite character because of how feisty her character was, and she was not painted as a damsel in distress.  She knew how to hold her own, and she was not afraid of offending others or abiding by their rules.  It was also nice to find a female werewolf character that was not present just to be eye candy.  Each character that Angell created had depth, and I loved being able to peel back their layers as the story went along.  The Hunted was not merely a werewolf story, but a story that examined how we all have to come to terms with who we are eventually.  It explores the human condition in a way that confronts insecurities and traumas that many of us go through on a daily basis.  I love how Angell imported these real world details into her fantasy world, and it showed me how well she understands people and how or why they act the way that they do.  The Hunted is perfect for anyone who feels like an outsider, and I have found that reading The Hunted has helped me to feel less alone.

If you are looking for an original take on the werewolf mythology with a real world tie in, you will be overjoyed to discover The Hunted.
