Today's review is on Hunted by Denise Grover Swank
Hunted is the second book in Swank's The Chosen series. This continuing adventure had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next.
Now that Emma and Will have escaped from the compound of the Vinco Potentia they are once again on the run. Between trying to stay one step ahead of them and the other group that wants Emma dead, the danger's become more heated in more ways than one. Emma begins to have other powers of her own besides the ability to puke when "the bad men" are near.
In an attempt to find out more about why Emma is "special", Will and Emma travel back to her home town and meet Emma's mother and grandmother. Though they do not make much headway with her mother, grandma has the necklace that Aiden; her father, gave her motherb before he disappeared from their lives.
When Will is attacked and beaten badly Emma turns to Raphael for help. But he too has secrets of his own that he is not willing to tell her and pop's up in her dreams. Whenever he touches her she can't help but to be pulled further away from Will.
Though she knows that Will loves her mark or none, she cannot bring herself to return those three little words back to him. After all that she has gone through neither Will nor I can blame her.
It's only at the end of Hunted, when they are the closest to finding Jake that Emma is able to voice her true feelings. When she finds the truth about what has been going on and who has been the controlling force. When she must choose the winner and loose something she loves.
Hunted is another home run book by Swank if I have ever saw one. It maintains the adventure, suspense, action, and emotional drama that many second installment books lack. I just can't wait for the next book where hopefully everything works out the way I want it to.
