Two boys as different as any two boys might be. They face the same enemy, the same danger, the same fear - dare they trust each other?

I received Hunter in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by I Read Book Tours. Hunter is the second installment in Guy Erma and the Son of Empire. This book continues where the first book left off Teodor is still missing his mother suspects someone in the dome has him but her searches haven’t turned anything up yet. When Karl the telepathic shapeshifter offers to find her son it’s a choice she can’t pass up and it doesn’t hurt that she finds him attractive either. As the two form an unlikely connect that should the empire know it would change everything.

Teodor is being held hostage by the battle Borgs who are controlled by Chart who’s his mother’s rival for the dome debate. Guy has been working hard for the Magnolia weekend helping with the fashion houses as a model, selling fruit from a stand. Guy’s whole dream is to join the Dome elite but without parents that’s next to impossible he’s hoping he might be able to prove to Chart that he has what it takes. When he sees what could be Teodor being held captive he keeps quiet, only to have it confirmed by Des one of the Dome Elite who have just returned. Will Karl find Teodor before it’s too late? What about Guy will he make it into the Dome Elite?

In the first book we had a lot more of Teodor’s point of view this one is more about Guy. We also have more of Karl as well as Sayginn who is Teodor’s mother. I found it interesting to see her point of view how she worries about bringing her son back as well as being in charge with the dome debate looming as well as the goran race. I like Sayginn she may have some issues but when it matters she cares for her son, and her chemistry with Karl is interesting. I’m curious to see how it will all play in next book with these two I see a powerful alliance.

I enjoyed Kidnap the first book in the series and have been looking forward to reading Hunter I had to see what was going to happen next to Teodor and Guy. I like the sci fi concept it’s fascinating to see how it’s all playing out in a world far away. I have to admit the giant goran are maybe my favorite part because the idea of riding a giant cat in a race is just so unique. I like the characters with the multiple points if view we are giving and insight into what’s going on with more than just Teodor and Guy. The characters are easy to connect in this book I really liked Sayginn’s and Karls story that’s unfolding in the background of finding Teodor. I kind of missed that we didn’t have a lot of Teodor but it makes since she he was locked up for part of it. Hunter is a fast packed action packed sci fi novel that flows from start to finish. I enjoyed Hunter it’s a great addition to the series and works well as the next installment. I can’t wait for the third installment to see how it all ends.
