Sixteen-year-old Hunter belongs to the Telepathic Alliance for the Latent or Newly manifested, otherwise known as Talon, a bounty hunter community known for their ruthless tactics. Her latest mission in San Diego was supposed to be a piece of cake, but when the job takes a treacherous and deadly turn, not even her telepathic abilities could have warned her of the dangers lurking around the corner.

There is only one place for Hunter to go, and that is straight into the hands of the government and their Psychic Intelligence Team, but even the “normal” world isn’t safe. With each passing hour throwing her deeper into the game of life and death, Hunter must decide who to trust before this mission becomes her last.

Hunter by Sarai Henderson
HunterCan there really be a fresh YA fantasy? You bet there can! Sarai Henderson’s Hunter is a fast-paced and completely entertaining read! The secret could be in her main character, Hunter, 16, who has telepathic abilities that can be an asset or a pain in the, um, head, literally.
Hunter has become an agent for the government in a group called TALON, along with her mentor, boyfriend, Bear, they track down their “marks” with her abilities to read minds and emotions. But that last job? What should have been a piece of cake becomes the beginning of a life and death run for Hunter as it feels the world has turned against her and the good guys seem bad and the bad guys appear to be her greatest allies. Confused, hurt and terrified, who can Hunter trust? Even Bear seems different, cold and well, deadly.

When she is out of options as to how to stay alive in a world gone mad, her enemies may be her safest bet to survive. But at what cost? How is a teen supposed to cope in a world that has lied to her about her past, her father and who she really is?

Hang on tight, as we follow Hunter down the rabbit hole to danger and death. Sarai Henderson has created excellent scenes, filled them with detailed action that I could feel, as if I were Hunter and these things were happening to me! And Hunter? What a true to life character, pure teen, with all of the insecurities and limited coping mechanisms of a girl caught up in a deadly and political game of cat and mouse. Brilliant dialogue peppers each page, as the lines between good and evil are blurred and smudged. Where will Hunter end up? Who will she owe her life to if she survives?
Highly recommended, get it, read it and you’ll want more Hunter!
