"The Hunting Season" picks up where "Vengeance" ends. While a minor supernatural element was integral to the story in "Vengeance," in "The Hunting Season" it becomes a much bigger part of the story, with many more characters having supernatural powers. Steve William's propensity to take risks and stretch the rules also increases, as does the body count. If William's had crossed some of the lines he does here in the prior book it might been too far, but with the added challenges due to the additional supernatural elements, along with many of the events that happen, it seems like considering all the rules off is reasonable.Was this review helpful?

Brilliant crime thriller
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Taylor has a gift for ratcheting up severe anxiety and suspense. The plot snares your emotions and takes you along for the ride. Each chapter feels more urgent than the last, the action and drama is thick and fast with the body count piling up. Kyle is playing cat and mouse, raping catatonic women and openly defying the law with his smug arrogance. I hate that mofo so much, which means Taylor got me to care and has a knack for making the bad guys loathsome, the good guys vulnerable but capable, and the in-between guys plain intimidating. This book goes where few venture, mixing a crime thriller with supernatural forces, it's physically plausible and believable, it was good, it was gripping, and I could not put it down. I read it all in one sitting and could still read more. It's sick, it's twisted, it's beyond demented, and I guarantee you will not be able to put it down. Another five out of five for JE Taylor!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
