Overview

One of Hollywood's hottest action-film writers, James Byron Huggins is a master at keeping the action rolling and the pages turning. Here, the author of Cain ("may be the thriller of the year" -- BookPage), unleashes a lightning-quick tale that pits a man born out of his time against the future's deadliest creation.

Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone -- or anything -- on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.

It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he'll still have to confront the grim

Meet the Author

James Byron Huggins emerged from the cobwebs of Alabama in 1993 and literally stunned both the American East Coast and West Coast with multiple million-dollar movie and book deals to create some of the most admired story lines and characters in recent fiction.
After creating his allegorical first novel, “A Wolf Story,” Huggins switched to the counterintelligence genre with the ground-breaking, “The Reckoning.” Long hailed as the first true thriller with the backdrop of a profoundly religious plot, “The Reckoning” remains a favorite of actions fans. Then Huggins wrote “Leviathan” – the story of a Komodo Dragon transformed into the biblical Leviathan and the havoc it wreaks upon those who must destroy it before it destroys the world.
Million dollar deals were immediately signed for “Cain,” and “Hunter,” before Huggins could even finish the books and overseas rights were sold before the novels were even released in the United States. Even now Huggins remains one of the most sought-after action screen writers in Hollywood.
Raised in a small Alabama town Huggins grew up to become involved in fantastic adventures that took him to the far side of the world and so very far from his beginnings. After spending several years in Europe smuggling people and materials in and out of the Iron Curtain to assist those suffering religious and political persecution in nations doomed to war, Huggins became a decorated police officer in Huntsville, Ala. But he resigned from police work in 1993 after publication of his first novel.
Huggins continues to write and to speak and frequently holds writing seminars for libraries, book clubs, colleges, high schools and churches. Anyone wishing to have Huggins visit your group or edit your work before publication or theatrical production need only contact him through this site.

    Action packed

    I dont like saying this because it's thoroughly cliched but I seriously couldn't put this book down. The pace was fairly fast and the downtime was written well enough to maintain interest throughout giving readers an inside view into the mind of the badass known as Hunter. Read just like a movie, which for overly imaginative minds as myself is just perfect

    "Introductions later." Jasmine walked up behind the tesla zombie and smashed it on the head with her steel baseball bat.
    Jade sheathed her sword and shook Pierce's hand firmly. "The name's Jade. She's my sis." She jerked her head towards Jasmine. "That's Jasmine."

    Ballie

    A bit up the road from them was a group of the dead, chasing a young woman. She fought them off best she could, and hearing cars, set off for the other side of the road." Oh please stop!" She called as loud as she could, gasping for breath. The roamers were being going off in the direction of their cars, while a few with the woman's death wish came at her still. Taking out her axe, she hacked at the roamers and tried to flag the cars down as they approached.

    An "alright" read...

    Like much of Huggins novels, it carries a highly fantastic, and quite unrealistic scientific take upon the man created monster genre. He includes many references and characters depicting popular(i.e...Special Forces, Navy SEALs, Army Rangers...) military forces, but they are often GREATLY misrepresented (in this novel, he incorrectly includes Rangers and members of the Marine Corps...).
    Despite this, Huggins usually writes a good novel for sci-fy escapism, coupled with elements of horror and military fiction. Hunter is no exception. The one major flaw is the CONSTANT and very annoying pages of inner dialogue meant to relay the inner thought process of the main character and the beast he is hunting. I tends to repeat it self over, and over again without providing any real insights into character development. It almost seems as though Huggins were trying "extend" his story simply for sake of page numbers.
