Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.

The Native American Navajo tribe has stories of a monster so wicked, so blood-thirsty, that they are to be hunted down and slaughtered. But are they just legends? Or is something sinister lurking in the shadows? The Yee Naaldlooshi—skinwalkers—have the ability to transform themselves. And they can be anyone. Anything

The book starts out pretty great. It was captivating and I was quickly pulled into its world. I absorbed the first chapter, because it was hard to put down.

And then everything changed. There is just so much contradiction regarding skinwalkers that I couldn't keep up with what was going on. How can someone who is terrified of them at the beginning, blow them off like they're nothing over and over again? There's more along those lines, but I'm not getting in

REVIEW
This is a new to me author.

In this story we have a young guy named Seb who is a shifter. The tribe he is from has many varied shifters from Puma's to Wolves and more. Although called skinwalkers as they are a navajo tribe.

There are hunters who do not want these beasts within their towns and homelands.

Cassie is a human who has been raised by h

Seb and Cass felt the pull the minute they met, but what will happen when his pack and her father find out? This story makes you feel like you are part of the action almost. I really enjoyed it.

This book will pull the young reader in right from the beginning. It's full of mystery, suspense and love. For me being an "older" woman, I actually really enjoyed this read and will be waiting for more.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Hunted was a great, quick read. It read like most YA novels, quick and full of delightfully snarky and corny wit. I really enjoyed the joking back and forth and mushy talk between Seb and Cass. Sometimes it seemed a little too sweet, like give-me-a-cavity sweet, but on the other hand, it fit the story. I spent at least half the time looking like thi

I recieved a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest review.

Star-crossed teenage lovers - one is the daughter of a Hunter, the other is a shapeshifting wolf-boy. Both are members of tribes that pass this legacy through their male descendants.

First of all - why male? It's never explained. The only way that females can become shapeshifters is if they are bitten. But why can't the hunters been girls? This is never really explored, and it bothered me throughout the book - but not as much a

I was provided a copy of the book by the Author for an honest review.

I just finished reading this book, and I have to say that when I started reading this book, for a moment I felt like if I was reading TWILIGHT. I was so close about not finishing reading the book, but I gave it a chance, and I'm so glad that I did, I love the characters, I just don't like the ending cause now I have to wait for the second book. I'm going to keep this short since I don't want to give anything away.

I got an ARC from the author CJ Hart for an honest review...
I received my copy of The Hunted several weeks before it was released, and I was amazed. I got my copy that had was not perfect and even with the few mistakes that I found, it did not take from the story.
The Hunted is a YA paranormal. It is about humans that shift into animals such as wolves or cats. But this has an American Indian twist to it, which made it even better. I love the stories from the Navajo Indians.

First, let me say that I loved the cover for this book. It was a great representation of what the book would be about. Today, the cover can lure you in and drop you down a rabbit's hole.

The author has a simple writing style that was easy to follow. I felt the characters in general were developed well. The main character, While I loved the main love interest, Seb, I found myself pulled from the story itself on many occasions. I think at times the pacing threw me off – either the story moved to f

My main interest in this book was the Native American legend of Skinwalkers. I was interested in seeing this author's interpretation of the legend. I feel that the author was able to stick true to culture and still expand the story to interest all readers.
The love story has a West Side Story feel, without all the singing. =) Cassie and Seb are from opposite sides, yet they fall in love. With mounting drama and fear of a fallout with the families, they stay strong and show that their bond can no

I received a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review, and I was really impressed with this author. The first thing that jumped out is that it’s extremely well written. I love the writing style, and I’d love to read more from her. Even though shifter books aren't really my thing, the story and characters really drew me in. The world the author has created is well detailed and believable. I like the little details of Cass’s life that make it more realistic. It’s a good love story, but t ...more

Such a wonderful story!!
Seb is a shifter. The tribe he is from are full of shifters - and they change into various animals.
Cassie is a human. Raised to not believe the stories about the nearby tribe, she has only ever heard rumors. Until one day when she sees a wolf near her house with mint green eyes.
Days later, she meets a boy. Unable to deny her attraction to him, she begins to get to know him better.
The catch? He also has mint green eyes.

Made it thru chapter 3 and put it down. Honestly don't know if I'll pick it back up. I'm a Hillerman man and I've read all his books multiple times. I search out books like his that deal with the southwest and Native Americans. So when I read the description and they talked about the Navajo and ski walkers, I was willing to give it a try. So far, we basically have a werewolf and no mention of the Navajo. It looks to be a love story of a human teenage girl and a werewolf teenage boy. I'm a 59 yea ...more
Book Club Gone Wrong
Tear jerker, intense, and dramatic with a bit of love and romance in the mix.

The author pulled me in with the 1st gut reaching chapter. Chapter two kind of had me feeling like I just jumped stories and took me a little to get over the 1st chapter and wrap my head around what all was going on in the following chapters.

Once I did I was interested to see how it would all play out.

This book leaves you on a huge clif hanger and definitely has me curious as to what will happen next.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book and was very interested in the dynamics between Cass and Seb. Cass is a senior in high school when she meets Seb, a skinwalker. Their relationship and even love are forbidden with his people being monsters in every aspect and her family being monster Hunters.

This was a quick read because I could not put it down.

The main reason for my 3 starts is that I am not really into the 2 POV in the same book, I find this book jumped a little to much for my liking but I did read it to the end. The story line is good and I think if it was written in 1 POV or 3rd Party it may have read better. The story is YA and as such someone of that age may like it written the way it was.

Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.

I love, love, love C.J. Hart's writing. I mean it. You're drawn in from the start and there's nothing that can get you back out again. Before you know it you walk among wolves, ravens and hunters, not sure where you wanna belong. I totally claim Seb as my own (I don't care what you say, Miss Hart) and can only tell you to read this story.

It has suspense, and love, and an absolutely amazing Book boyfriend. You know you want it. You really do. I'm moving on to book two. <3
