Forget those namby-pamby sparkly vampires from THAT series, The Hunt has the real deal - vicious, bloody-thirsty and, well, hungry. Vampires dominate the world, hepers (humans) are all butr extinct and in order for the race to survive, they must integrate themselves into vampiric society ... without giving themselves away. The Ruler senses that his popularity among the vampires is waning, so he re-institutes The Hunt, where 'randomly chosen' vampires are selected to hunt down the last of the domesticated hepers, bred solely for the purpose of The Hunt ...
A great read which leads really well into the second novel of the series.
After reading the 'Kite Runner' and 'A thousand splendid suns' it was imperative that I read Hosseini's new book titled 'And the mountains echoed'. This is a story of two siblings separated. In true Hosseini style, characters from past and present are explored, entangled with rich Afghan history. It begins..."You want a story and I will tell you one." It is 1952. A father presents his children with a fable as they embark on a journey through the mountains of the book's title, a myth to prepare them for the coming rupture in their lives, one that will echo down generations. This is a sad story...it is real...it is cleverly written! Hosseini is a master of story writing! This book has made it to my top 5!
