HUNTER Part 2 of Guy Erma and the Son of the Empire (book review)
HUNTER is part two in the Guy Erma and the Son of the Empire book series. It was written by Sally Ann Melia. This post has been organized by iRead Book Tours. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
13-year-old Guy Erma has been offered a chance to fight for his place in the Dome Elite. Only who will be his opponent? Will he face a Battle Borg of Dome?
Once they were heroes. These men died as heroes in battle. Now they have been reincarnated as the fearsome vanguard of the Dome Elite. They are the Battle Borgs of Dome.
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 read this book yesterday on a 3 hour plane ride. I have to say as much I enjoyed Kidnap: Part 1... this book was much more of a page turner for me. It really just had this excitement level to it. From Teo still being in the hold of his kidnappers right up until the end Dome Elite fight I felt like I was racing to the finish to see where the boys would end up.
When I reviewed Part 1... I wrote " I liked how, even though they (Teodor & Guy) were so different… separate… their lives were almost woven together and connections made through mutual people and places. I can’t wait to see how the next book brings them closer together." Part 2 didn't disappoint. Teo and Guy are even closer in their stories. I feel like there is even more of a connection between the 2 boys that I'm just not grasping yet.
I have to say I also like the scenes between Teo's mother (the Regent) and Karl (the "alien" officer). I'm really hoping something more will happen between them.
