Waiting on Wednesday: The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
The Hunt by
Publication Date: May 8th 2012

The Hunt - St. Martins Griffin
Don’t Sweat.  Don’t Laugh.  Don’t draw attention to yourself.  And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.

Gene is different from everyone else around him.  He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood.  Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.  Keep the truth a secret.  It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.
 
When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him.  He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

Synopsis by goodreads.com

Has anyone else noticed how many books will be released on that day? My best case scenario is splitting myself in at least three, better yet four (someone has to do the washing up and working part). Anyway ... this sounds like it’s putting an interesting twist on the dystopian genre by making humans the weaker species. The other slightly unusual bit that caught my attention is the male point of view this book is going to offer. Now I only need to solve this pesky reading-time-management problem.

What are you waiting on this week? Leave us a comment.

You're totally right, SO many books are coming out May 8th, this one and City of Lost Souls being another! I think In Honor is another one, but I have to double check on that one. This book sounds very interesting, and I'm excited to read it! =)
