I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Xandrie Kovak!
First, I want to commend Xandrie's writing. I have been reading her books since she first began writing this series, and I have been noticing a quality-filled progression from book to book. For one, her writing becomes more fluid and natural. I have a weird brain, so I'm going to say that it literally fills the page, in the sense that there are no disjointed parts in the text, and everything is effortlessly continuous.
Second, my doppelganger is amazing. In this installment, Xandrie picks up right where her debut novel, The Fervor, left off - and left us the readers gasping for more. Throughout The Hunter, Claire begins to learn more about her powers, and begins to ever so slowly and painfully embrace her supe side. Claire has become fierce and confident, and I like how she makes lets her mind guide her, and not her emotions - most of the time.
I hadn't realized ow much I missed Lucas and Claire together until I started reading this. It hit me all at once, and I didn't want to put this book down. I was both enchanted by the nostalgia of Claire and Lucas, and Xandrie's skillful writing.
Overall, I was very satisfied with this sequel, and CANNOT wait until the next one!
