The Hunt by Stacey Kade
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Being able to rapidly enter a world already established in Book One without having read it is always a good thing. The World of The Hunt was relatively easy to understand, in part because there was nothing terribly complicated about it: an evil corporation has created a human/alien hybrid and raised it (in this case, her, Ariane) to be able to live among humans with some degree of ease. Of course Ariane doesn't particularly like what's been done to her and escapes, with her friend Zane tagging along. Hijinks ensue.
And that's the problem: the reason it wasn't difficult to pick up the threads here is because they were well-worn threads. Very little new or surprising happens here, but readers who enjoy this type of book (and I'm including fans of Boy Nobody as well) will enjoy this entry into the genre.
