This was interesting, I liked the magical elements. I’m just not a fan of reincarnation.

This book was the definition of romance. How could this story not have plenty of love, with the soulmates theme and the fact that a God, waited for the reincarnation of his lover(that had been killed), for centuries, always being faithful to him and never taking another lover?
I really liked this part of the story, how Pip's soul felt the pull for Hunter, of how Hunter always gave him a choice and put Pip's desires first, and was prepared to say goodbye to him if that meant Pip could real

Imaginative gay male romance between a young man and an immortal god. The preface didn't make sense until I finished the book.
Typos: apostrophe s plural (photo's), lay/lie mix up, tip for top, capital letter in the middle of a sentence ("Pip moved as if to leave and Let Alex..."), extra word ("all three pleaded admitted it"), their for they're, comma used to end sentence (Life has a way...plans, I wouldn't get your hopes up...).

Hunter is the first book in the Elsewhere series by H J Perry. I really enjoyed this book. The book is well written and nicely edited. The books flow is a little on the slow side, but the characters are well developed and lovable. I loved Pip and the Hunter. The only part that had me scratching my head was when I read that Pip's 18-year-old best friend Alex had shingles which I always thought of as something that older people get. Other than that I loved the book and can't wait to read about Ale ...more

I had a big problem figuring Pip's age. I know that he graduated from H.S. so he was 17-18 but sometimes he felt much younger. He was very young then older than his years. Aunt Lauren tends to treat Pip as a young boy quite often. This made the entire story feel very imbalanced and pulled me out quite a bit. ...more

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this book. There are elements that are interesting and I liked the idea of fated lovers finding their way back to one another time and time again, but there were a few too many issues for me to just enjoy the story.

Pip really had it hard. An awkward gay boy in a small town with a desire for more. We know what that more is, but he doesn't and his searching makes him look beyond the borders of the town. On graduation night he's excited for the opportunity to l

I really don't know how to rate this story, it had all the right elements to be a great fantasy, but at the end, I didn't feel engaged in the storyline. It is written only from the POV of Pip so this is a very YA story, full of the typical insecurities, doubts and struggles of newly graduated high schoolers. Then you have "the Hunter", this mystical man, whose actual name is never revealed, who lives in a parallel universe very similar to our Middle Age even though you only read about the hut wh ...more

This wonderful book had a unique dreamlike quality in the places where Hunter and Pip are together and a very anxious, real world setting when Pip was in his normal life. Pip has just graduated high school, literally that day, and has no idea what to do with his life. He has no money to go to college--and no idea what to study if he did--but he's always felt that he was meant to do something or be part of something special. A frightening emergency has him crossing paths with the Hunter in the wo ...more

👍👍💜👬 A 4.5 star read, I really loved the arc of Pip, the hero, in his transformation from a scared, bullied, orphan high schooler to a man confident enough to go for the future he desires, navigating hard choices and society's expectations. The bullying was a gripping part of the story and got me engaged with Pip and rooting for his HEA and the downfall of Oli and his jock sidekicks. I found the story well-written; the introduction of a parallel world and a love connection for the ages gave the ...more

A sweet story that is well written with wonderful characters. Pip was bullied in school and it got really bad on the night of his graduation when he was left in the woods. The Hunter finds and thus begins their saga together discovering Pip's past lives and how they have been intertwined. Great paranormal story with a new world to discover.

When myths become reality

I owned this book for a long while until I had to read it. This was a beautiful story, with lots of longing & hot sex scenes.
I loved the premise of fated mates who’s souls are joined together for life. A young man who feels like life around him isn’t what he wants & a mythological being who is forever his...
Beautifully written & a joy to read!! I can’t wait to read the follow up of this story!!

A great MM fantasy. Pip and his Hunter were very engaging characters. I loved how dedicated Hunter was to Pip life after life, always waiting for his live to return to him. I have the feeling that I'm going to love the Elsewhere series, I'm already ready for the next book.

A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review An Alisa Review:

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I really enjoyed this story. Pip has always felt out of place in his life and that something was missing. Hunter has missed his lover for centuries and is happy to have found him again he just hopes he doesn’t want to go back to the world of man again.

Hunter is so willing to let Pip make his own decisions without any pressure, I could just feel his hurt even though we were seeing the story through Pip’s eyes. Pip
