The Hunt based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Katherine Dunn writes, The Hunt's lush, bold inventions spawn awe as well as fear. The vivid characters are so engaging that their fate becomes heart-stoppingly real. 5.0 out of 5 stars Linell Jeppsen's THE HUNT is a modern day struggle with and between vampires. Dare you enter this thrilling adventure?, THE HUNT is expertly written, filled with beautifully descriptive passages. It now lives in my mind. I know these people. They are not just characters on a page; they are fleshed out, real just like you and me. It is not the usual 'vampire' story. Linell Jeppsen has given us a story of new friends, people you would like to know. (And some that you have to hate.) Primarily, you will meet Brian and his wife, Holly, Roger, a forest ranger and his friend Harley who is a spirit walker and of course exquisitely, handsome Raphael, a modern day vampire. As you learn of their lives you find that they will have something in common. I laughed, loved, cheered, hated and cried. Only an expert story teller can surface so much emotion in a reader. I did not want the book to end and I cried for my friends that have gone on without me. I hope Ms. Jeppsen writes another novel about the people in THE HUNT because to me they still live, somewhere. 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful: 4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Katherine Dunn Author of Geek Love, April 28, 2011 This review is from: The Hunt (Kindle Edition) The Hunt's lush, bold inventions spawn awe as well as fear.

This review is from: The Hunt (Kindle Edition) I was caught up in this strange and wonderful story immediately, high in the forests of northeastern Washington State, with mysterious deaths at a remote campground. I couldn't put it down. Equal parts history, magic and suspense, THE HUNT is a novel of surprising scope. With a scholar's depth and the deft touch of a great storyteller, Linell Jeppsen has woven a gripping vampire tale of passion and perseverance, bravery and loss. Even so, the vampires are secondary to the resilience of the human spirit in this story. If you want a fast moving vampire story with a little more meat on its bones than the usual, try THE HUNT. 5.0 out of 5 stars IMPRESSIVE, FAST PACED AND HIGH INTENSITY!, June 11, 2011 By LISA HOAAS - See all my reviews on Amazon.
