With hints of Frank Peretti and Stephen King, The Hunted is a chilling debut."
--Creston Mapes, author of Nobody

A vicious enemy, a family secret, a thirst for revenge, and a need for reconciliation all drive The Hunted from intriguing beginning to thrilling conclusion."
--Kathryn Mackel, author of Vanished

Read this someplace safe as you experience the incredibly descriptive world of The Hunted. And sleep with the lights on.
--Austin Boyd, author of Mars Hill Classified trilogy

MY REVIEW:

You must read this book with an open mind. If you can do that and you like Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker's style, then you will like this book. It is very well written and has mystery and suspense as the story unfolds and you try to figure out who is doing what along with the characters in the book. I was intrigued and questioning as I read and wondered right down to the end if I was on the right track or not. I could see this book being a hit with the young adult and male crowd.

Leave a comment with your email address and I will enter you in a drawing for a copy of this book. Good luck!
