My Review

Hunter is the second book in the Guy Erma & The Son of Empire series which is young adult science fiction. In the first book, Kidnap, Prince Teodor was kidnapped. In this book, they are still searching for him. Guy knows who has him and has to decide who he is going to be loyal to.

There’s a lot going on in Hunter. It seems that everyone knows that Chart Segat, the head of the Dome Elite, has Prince Teo but even though he’s promised that the Dome Elite will “find him,” he has not delivered. How horrible for Teo’s mother, the queen!

There are a lot of characters in these books but it’s easy to keep up with them. Some of them frustrated me, like the Dome Elite or those who want to be Dome Elite, because they blindly follow Chart Segat. Guy, on the other hand, has only ever wanted to be part of the Dome Elite, but he struggles between doing what’s right and following Cart Segat’s orders.

This book is good but it stops right in the middle of the story just like the first book did. It’s not a stand alone book.
