Hunt by L.C. Mawson was a wonderful story to read. This is a wonderful story written by one of my favorite authors. This story is full of action and suspense threw the whole story. I read this story and my 2 daughters read and we all loved it very much we are looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I highly recommend this wonderful book to all. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review. The story starts out with an introduction to Freya’s mother and to her guardian, Amber. It introduces the realm that Freya is from, and that her mother didn’t make it and the father is unknown. The way to save Freya was to take her to another realm. Which fast forwards us to Freya, age 14 and in the foster care system. She is possibly autistic, and has been in and out of foster homes her whole life. All she has is her roommate and best friend Alice, until she is fostered by a young couple living in the next city over. Which for any teenager is tough, new school, city and new people. Freya protects herself though, keeps to herself until she befriends Damon, an unusual boy who has clearly been living under a rock. After accidentally flooding the bathroom at her new school, her suspicions of being watched are confirmed as a spirit possessing a teacher informs Freya that she is a family friend tasked to her care and education of unknown and latent magical powers. While you get the concept of the story; it is a common one with a kid who has no major family ties and struggles to make friends, finds out they’re super special and begin a journey to hone their skills, and possibly save the world. One of my biggest issues with the book, however, was the lack of world building. Yes, Freya had magical powers but there was little information about where she was from. It would have been a good idea if this story had delved into that more, to introduce the history and to give the reader an idea of what ride they were in for. I also found that Damon’s family’s position in the story was a little too confusing. Even with the explanation of his uncle’s partner. But at the same time, there were good things about the book too. Freya often didn’t seem her age, and her maturity was refreshing. She also took to being told she has latent magical powers and isn’t from Earth originally pretty darn well. Her eagerness to learn was enjoyable as well, and her willingness to learn on her own too. This story just needed a little more build up to make it a little more believable for me. But I absolutely enjoyed that Freya was autistic and it was interesting to see the world from her eyes.
