Caitlyn is a telepath in a world where having any Paranormal power is illegal. Caitlyn is on the run from government troopers, who can enslave, torture, or even kill her, or make her hunt other Paranormals. When Caitlyn settles down in a city, she falls for Alex, a Normal (someone without Paranormal powers), which is dangerous because he can turn her in. And she discovers renegade Paranormals who want to destroy all Normals. Caitlyn must decide whether she’s going to stay in hiding to protect herself, or take a stand to save the world.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Hunted by author Cheryl Rainfield. When I read her novel Scars, I knew that she would definitely be one of those authors to look out for. So when I got the chance to read Hunted it was no surprise that I was jumping in my seat and did a little happy dance *la winky face*. However, what I was told on the back didn’t exactly give me the information to the one question I needed answered: What exactly is a Paranormal? Somewhere in the back of my mind, I assumed it was somebody who could see ghosts and that would be it. Boy was I wrong! Instead, they’re people who have superhuman abilities (that is the best way I can describe it to you).
Now, I’m sure you’re wondering how this fits into the plot. This is the best way I can describe it and I’m not sure if you’ve seen it (but I’m just gonna assume that you have), but there was that one season of that TV show Heroes where everybody with unnatural abilities were being rounded up by the government to protect the wellbeing of everybody who is normal. And that, dear readers, is exactly what Hunted is. Except that Hunted is set in a world where it is completely okay to round up Paranormals, and we get to see what kind of a world it is from the point of view of a Para (short for Paranormal) on the run; our main character Caitlyn.
So when the novel began, I was surprised to see that we were just thrown into a fast paced car ride where Caitlyn and her mother are being hunted by Government Troopers and Government Paras. Already I was enthralled and had to read on. One of the main points in the novel was Caitlyn’s brother Daniel, so you can imagine my surprise when we end up meeting Daniel only a few chapters later. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will tell you that Daniel was so not who I expected him to be. And when you read the novel, you will see why.
There were a few points in the novel as it proceeded where I was confused with how Caitlyn and her Mother were getting away with so many things via the internet and mailing system, when the government is said to have been watching and scanning everything. A part of me wishes that we got to see more detail on how they got away with schemes like those, but: c’est la vie. Besides that, as the novel progressed and we got to see what a Government controlled high school looks like, I found that out of Caitlyn’s limited amount of friends, I was really disappointed with her love interest Alex. But I only felt this way after a short scene in the novel where he spoke about the Para’s the way that most Para-haters did. However, as the novel continued, I was starting to fall in love with him. Not only does he have such a tragic past, but his willingness to put himself in the face of danger for Caitlyn’s sake had my heart melting.
The story itself was full of so much drama and mystery. I personally can say that I loved all of the suspense that came with the plot and characters, not to mention all of the superhuman powers and abilities that just made the novel above and beyond. I would recommend this to fans of Dystopian government controlled worlds and to fans of the sci-fi/romance genre. Hunted is definitely worth a read.

    This looks awesome! Totally added to my to-read list.

    And as for having a super power, that's tricky. I'd love to be able to read minds, but that's a power that would probably end up biting you in the butt way to often.

    How about the power to change my clothes with just a thought? That would be handy!

  14. Reading the minds of others might come in handy. But I'm not sure if I would like to always know what they think about me, hehe.
