I read Kidnap which was part one of the Guy Erma series (you can read that review here). I really enjoyed it and was looking forward to Hunter (and now I’m waiting to read the next book in the series!)
This isn’t really a mystery because we as the reader have known what is going on, but I will say it’s suspenseful and the suspense continues.
I would also classify this in action. There are several parts that will get your heart pumping.
I don’t know how else to describe the book (or the series) because it is sort of ‘science fiction’-ish, but action, suspense, emotional. I found myself several times wanting to take over and be in control because, well frankly, everyone in the book is out for the power and control.
This is a very clean book which is great because I feel that not only is this a great young adult read, but I would even consider a teenager who is interested in science fiction to enjoy this book. I am not sure I would recommend for much younger than the 13-14 year old audience though.
And it’s certainly a book that adults can enjoy too!
