Reid isn’t sure if he’s grateful to be alive. He’s managed to save a small group of kids from the hunters, but only by trapping them all underground without food or water or a way out. If starvation doesn’t kill them, thirst will. Still, they are out of the hunter’s reach and that’s something. Reid refuses to stop trying, even when the kids find out they aren’t alone in th ...more

INITIAL NOTE: I'm not giving this a star rating yet. I'm going to wait for the rest of the series, then come back and see how it affects my perception. As it stands, I'm torn -- for the actual writing, I'd give this a solid 4; for characterisation & my enjoyment, I'd give it a 2. Hence, waiting.

The technical aspects of the writing in this are solid, like with RUN -- the pacing is excellent, the tension is high, and the combat scenes are written with precision. Ms. Larsen definitely knows how

Reid decides that he is sick of running. The mine is deep and there has to be a way out. This place is his ticket to freedom. Above all, it’s much safer.
But Reid has to change his plan. And once again, running becomes his only option.

After I finished reading Run, I was obsessed with getting the sequel. The first book was so well-written it left me speechless and begging for more. And Hide didn’t disappoint me at all.

I have to say, I had some doubts about the action. Why? Because the first book

While RUN, the first book in The Hunted series, takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of fear and survival, HIDE pulls the pace back a little, and not necessarily for the best.
Reid and his troupe are tired of running, tired of being the prey, tired of being taunted by the Hunters. The next best thing is to hide.
Patti Larsen takes Reid and his band of followers on another spine-tingling, tension filled journey that will have you at the edge of your seats, screaming with frustration when you

I really enjoyed Hide, part two of "The Hunted" series. Picking up right where Run left off, with Reid and the rest of the kids in the mine.
I particularly enjoy the character conflicts, and how the need for survival causes the kids to make decisions on the fly. This one was hard to put down, and I am already reading the third book!

If you are into constant horrifying, unbelievable happenings then you will like this book. There is nothing uplifting, inspiring or character building that would make me want to recommend this book. As soon as I realized that this tragic tale goes on for two more books I decided to stop and cut my losses. The first was different so interesting but to try to keep it up for four books...well, it is too much.
Compulsively readable, as I want to know what happens next. But the writing is truly awful, the characters flat as pancakes: the girls weak, sobbing ninnies, the boys vascillating between brutish and whimpering messes. I try to feel compassion for them, but their whining just goes on and on to the point I stop caring and begin to skim...a very bad sign for me as a reader. Still, I bought the next one and will continue hoping the payoff is worth it.

Continuing the story of Reid and his rag tag team of misfits who follow behind, the Hunters continue to torment and scare! Except this time, add in scary little black furry things and you have a new mini-villian. And EW! Liked the sequel to Run and also read this quickly. Yes, fault can be found (as with any book) but overall, I like where it takes me. Twists and turns and lots of gruesome activity. I do like characters overall and look forward to finding out what is next.

The heart-pounding chase of Run has come to an end as Reid and his friends find a hiding place.
But are they safe enough? Or are they just trapped?

The second book in "The Hunted" series takes you on a roller-coaster of emotion. Patti Larsen's writing
pulls you apart and then puts you back together again. Your heart will swell, your eyes will well with emotion.

Heart-rending and brilliantly evocative!

A must-read!

Brilliant sequel to RUN. Riveting, suspenseful, engaging and terrifying. Reid and his friends have stayed alive long enough to evade their predators. Now they must hide, and plan. But can they hide from inhuman hunters who are bred to kill? Are they really safe, or is it all a trap?

With fully fleshed out characters, well-written prose and a plot that keeps you guessing, this series is a MUST READ!

Just as good as the first of the series. Exciting, tense, and terrifying. The mine was enough to drive me mad as I am so able to put myself into this group of kids. I love when a book can do that, and make me think of it when I not reading it. My favorite part is that the kids are so conflicted between survival of the fittest mentality vs. compassion and humanity. Excellent story, already started the next of the series, and can't wait to see where these kids end up.

I enjoyed this series it had plenty of excitement and suspense to keep me interested. I would reccomend this for older teens because of the violence and bloodshed. There is one incident of underage drinking, much blood, death, violence against children, betrayal and loss. I would say you should know the sensitivity of your child before allowing them to read this below age 15.

This story is sooooooooo good.

Terrifying, harrowing... the author does such an excellent job of building the suspense, making me care about the characters. I rooted for them to push, struggle, fight, succeed. I hurt for their losses and fears. This is the kind of book that keeps me coming back for more.

This series is a fast but heart pounding read. You can't stop rooting for these kids and celebrating their victories and crying at their losses. The end of Book 2 is filled with a new hope, new determination.

It was a great book and I cannot wait till I read the third one in its series. It was suspenseful, exciting, and terrifying. The characters were all close to your heart and I could feel their pain and hope. I would recommend it to those not faint of heart.

Not a bad read but not as good as the first one. It moved slowly and I felt some of it was redundant.

I finished the second book in the series by Patti Larsen called Hide.
It was as amazing as the first book and no less thrilling. Full steam ahead as I go to the next book called Fight.

Just as good as the first one. Typical dystopian YA book, paying homage to Lord of the Flies and books of that nature.

I write a lot of paranormal books for someone who is afraid of the dark. And I wonder why I have to sleep with the lights on. Sometimes life is a teenaged B horror movie and I'm the one who investigates when the scary music is playing. But the voices are calling and resistance is… Yes. I am a Star Trek geek, too. And a fan of RPG’s. With a slight coolness factor since I've been told I'm allowed to ...more
