The Hunter: Awakening
Melisa Castro is deeply in love with Chris, the father of her four-month-old pregnancy. When Chris leaves her for work, strange things begin to happen. A mysterious, emaciated man tumbles onto her property, badly wounded, and acting in a quirky kind of way. He needs urgent help. Melisa feels an irresistible need to help this man, but the closer she gets to him, the stronger the need to stay even closer to him. Melisa has strange sensations, and she knows quite well that it would be folly to link them to the child she carries, but there is something about the child that is unsettling, in addition to her ability to see the past of the strange man by merely touching him. Things escalate quickly with the arrival of Ranald, who brings bad tidings of the awakening of the beast known as The Hunter. The story only gets more intriguing and captivating from this point on.
The Hunter: Awakening by Nicholas Arriaza is a spellbinding story that will bring readers to exotic places and to the dark regions of the hearts of some of the characters. The mystery about the leather-bound-book containing all answers was intriguing enough. I also enjoyed that readers got to know who Chris really is while the woman he loves knows nothing about his dark secret and the power struggle he is involved in, which creates a powerful sense of suspense that keeps the read enjoyable. Readers will adore the originality of this story, the absence of clichés that are plentiful in this genre, and the excellent writing. Arriaza has a rare gift for prose and plot, and his story is laced with vivid descriptions of the settings, insightful and sensational capturing of the emotions of the characters, plus the ability to propel the plot ahead with huge conflict. The Hunter: Awakening is a delightful opening into a series that will have readers spellbound; I can’t wait for the next ride. This one was really exhilarating.
