    Great thrill ride

    I know the other 2 reviews were from 08 and 09. But I had to remark about this book. I just recentle read Scream. Until yhen I had never heard of this author. I loved it, then read Frantic, and now The Hunted. The previos person seems upset that the author is somehow belittling God. Rad it again. Remember, it is Fiction. Not making God filthy or sexual or perverted. He is just using othrr worldly ir sci-fi to make a point. And he did it very nicely. So what that a demon ecisted as a monster in this book. That is what sci fi means. And in the end it took faith and giving ones self to God to kill this demon. After all satan IS a demon and he does exist. Broaden your reading horizon a little. This is entertainment and does not in the least put a bad light on God.

    Very interesting!

    Too preachy at times, but otherwise a very good book.

    Dangerously Misleading

    Are you looking at this book because you are Christian? Think again! It is demon-focused to the point of trying to make us think that demons can create a monster-animal "not-of-this-world". Only God can create life. Why would a Christian write this kind of stupidity? OK, so the good guy finds his faith. So, could he possibly have done it in the real world without giving demons the glory? Booo. I would advise the author to spend more time in his Bible and less time in darkness.

    A debut thriller that has it all¿excellent prose, characters and a spiritual message that stays with you when you put the book down, and a hair-raising plot to tie it all together.

    Hide and seek an innocent game kids play, right? Right. Until a bizarre animal joins in the fun and viciously attacks one of the players. In The Hunted, young Caleb Sanders learns this lesson the hard way. He sneaks into an abandoned basement, the perfect place to hide from his buddies, and is brutally mauled by an unidentified animal. At first it appears as if he is simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, but soon you begin to ask if there is more to Caleb¿s attack. Has God put him in the beast¿s path for a special purpose? A purpose beyond belief and one that only Caleb¿s uncle can figure out? When Joe Sanders learns of his nephew¿s attack, Joe rushes to Caleb¿s side. The boy sinks into a coma and Joe vows to find the animal that hurt Caleb no matter the cost. But has Joe spoken too soon? Can he imagine the cost that will be exacted? Does he have the internal fortitude to confront his past, confront his guilt over his brother¿s death, and finally unload his emotional baggage in time to save Caleb? And just as important, how will he face the woman he¿d left behind years ago without any explanation? Not that he has a choice. He has to see her again as she is now the Chief of Police for Dark Hills and is in charge of the investigation. In a search for the beast, Maggie and Joe are thrown together and buried feelings rise to the surface. But Maggie holds a secret that stands in the way of rekindling their relationship and in the way of finding the beast that is now attacking and killing other residents of the small town. Can Joe unlock Maggie¿s secret before other¿s are killed? Can he find and stop the beast? And can he forgive himself and learn to trust God again, even when faced with his own mortality? Oh, and does Caleb survive¿come out of his coma? These are all questions that you will want the answers to once to start reading The Hunted. Mike Dellosso has penned a supernatural thriller that is as much spellbinding as it is a study in human frailties and the need for God. The plot is simple really¿animal attacks, man searches for and hunts down animal. It is the powerful human struggles over faith, past mistakes, and forgiveness that really makes this a special book. One that even those who don¿t enjoy supernatural stories should take the time to read. Dellosso¿s writing is strong, exceptional really, especially for a first book. His descriptions, similes and metaphors are unique and worth savoring. His characters are deep, have individual voices and are so real, you are certain that you personally know them by the time the story ends. And the author¿s faith and relationship with God comes shining through in his characters. When I read fiction, I read with two hats on. One a reader, the other a writer. It is not often when both sides are not only satisfied by a book, but excited about it as well. The Hunted is one of those rare books that met and exceeded the expectations of both sides. This is especially surprising as I never read supernatural stories. And for those of you out there who don¿t read fantasy or visionary books because you can¿t wrap your head around such a world, trust me. You can be a full-fledged skeptic and still enjoy The Hunted. Pick it up now. You won¿t be disappointed.
