My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Have no doubt, Hunted is an action packed thrill ride. Chosen was amazing and gave us a great understanding of our characters, but Hunted was so meaty I will be full for days! Only days though, so the next book needs to get here in a hurry.
Shanti is on her journey to fulfill her role a Chosen, and encounters many additions to her close circle; some are pieces of her old life returning to her, and others are new, interesting additions to the already amazing cast of characters. The growth of Shanti and Cayan’s understanding of not only their powers – and how they interact – but also of each other.
This Ms. Breene is very sneaky in how she includes small bits of romance into this book, but make no mistake – while it is a underlying feature, Hunted is focused on the journey, not the destination.
I fell in love with Shanti in Chosen; her vulnerable yet fiercely determined personality was endearing. We now get a bit more insight into her emotions and the toll they take on her. Shanti proves her self more with every decision that she is the person that does the right thing, not the easy thing. Plus, she is a bad-ass warrior – who wouldn’t root for her?
Cayan is, gah! Wonderful!! He refuses to stay separated from Shanti, even after her less than stellar departure. The thing I love the most about him is that even though you can totally tell he is in love with her (though I don’t know if he know that yet), he knows that they need to be together for the greater good and that is a driving force for him.
All of our favorite characters are back plus some new ones that add so much to the story – but I won’t tell you. I am not a spoiler!! I am SO excited to see how The Warrior Chronicles plays out!!!!
