Having been homeschooled until now, Maeleigh is nervous about starting at her new high school. She knew things would be different, but there was no way to prepare her for Gearden. Nor was she prepared to hear his voice in her head. Born deaf, she hasn’t heard anyone’s voice clearly before so why now? And how?!

That’s not the only weird thing going on in town. There’s a

The Hunt is a fascinating story of family, Druids, Wolves and other mystical creatures. It’s well paced and intriguing, the author using ambiance brilliantly. What I liked the most, though, was that the main character’s disability, while important, was not the focus of who she was. No spoilers, but she is interesting on a lot of levels. Representation matters and showing “Maeleigh” as a whole person with family drama, the supernatural aspects of what she is and relationship issues made her a ...more

The Good: The fact that a new student who is deaf instantly makes a lot of friends at a new school across the country. It almost seems too easy. She has translators and gets by nearly effortlessly.

The Typical: bad boy future alpha discovers his mate. He doesn't care that she is deaf. He is also not accepting the mate claim because she has no idea about what is going on. As they begin to explain to her about shifters and druids and other super naturals the book takes a turn.

This book was received from the author for review. All opinions are my own.

(Note that my rating is actually a 3.5, but Goodreads still doesn’t allow half-stars.)

I have to say, the absolute coolest thing about this book (and series, it’s a got a sequel coming out! Today, actually, according to Goodreads at the time of writing this!) is the fact that the main character is deaf. (Note: I don’t think she’s Deaf, at least by what I’ve learned, but I could be wrong.)

Do you know how many books I’ve

Lots of potential but...

Concept was good. Had and issue with MC being labeled as deaf though. She could hear some conversations but not others, whether or not the speaker was looking at her or not. She routinely spoke and was clearly understood. The various interpreters inserted themselves into conversations which should never be done. I also had an issue with the writing. In one sentence the MC was convinced her mate was disgusted with her but then it was a loving look. The writer wrote in both

I don't know how else to report this I will retract my review when I figure it out or if someone decides to contact me

About 10 to 12 chapters in I can't really look at this moment the audible narration for this novel turns to straight crap and the author even goes completely out of character and cusses because she continues to mess up. I actually paid money for this and can't do anything about it right this minute. I am so floored at the lack of professionalism in the fact that I had to pay for

Saw a review for this on Twitter from one of my favorite authors and decided to check it out. YA isn't my usual thing, but werewolves definitely are, so why not? First off, I like the different perspectives. Jumping around from character to character gives more context than a typical first person narrative. Second, I love the sign language aspect. Showing disabled people as more than their limitations is so important in my opinion. The concept is great and the characters are interesting. I would ...more

d that this book followed an ordinary girl with a different ability, showing how upbeat and accepting she was of an already different lifestyle. She made friends quickly and easily and accepted them from the first meeting. I really enjoyed the friendship and family focus. The book includes different types of supernaturals, which keeps things interesting. Theres plenty of action and romance and friendship to keep you invested in the characters. It's an easy read, which is good because I didnt ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Maeleigh and Gearden! There were a lot of twists that I didn’t see coming which was a nice surprise. I read a lot so some books feel like more of the same with different names. This was definitely NOT one of those times! The background on the FMC was a bit more complicated than expected and brings some extra drama and layers to the interpersonal dynamics. I’m definitely looking forward to more.

Hard to read

I'm sorry to say that it took me a while to read this book because in the beginning of was all over the place. I got irritated very fast and finished the book wondering "what?" . It was ok but not many kind of book.

*I received an ARC from Reedsy Discovery*

In The Hunt, we have the main character, Maeleigh, who is deaf. I found it fascinating to read about as it really added another layer to the story. Since the story is partly told through her POV we had to rely on her other senses and it really made a unique reading experience.
We also get the POV from multiple characters which is one of my favorite features in books. I always feel it adds more to the story and makes it more rounded out. It was not a

Are you a fan of the trope where the average girl turns out to be extraordinary? If you are, this story is for you.

The main character, Maeleigh, steamrolls her way from new girl at school to hot commodity. She’ll make any reader envious of her ability to sidestep the awkwardness of high school. Popular guys vying for her attention; she has it. Good-natured pretty girl wanting to be her bff; she has it. Most sought out seat to sit at lunch; she has it. And that is only chapter one, my friends.

The story was fine, but the Audible version was hard to follow at times. I actually thought at one point that maybe the file had been corrupted when it downloaded or my phone was glitching while it was playing. Just random starts and stops and repeats of the same sentence or fragment of sentence. It’s not throughout the whole book thankfully, but just after the 2 hour mark and around the 4 hour mark and a bit towards the end. Also some dead air where you just hear the narrator shuffling around. ...more

Very badly edited

I tried reading this book but the editing was so bad I had a hard time understanding what was happening and who it was happening too. Now apparently she has another book in the series ready to release when she apparently didn’t take the time to have this one edited. I couldn’t finish this one so I’ll definitely skip the next one.

Fun read! Looking forward to the next one, which is beside me right now :)

I am not a fan of cliff hanger endings and this book does a good job of wrapping up the conflict and letting you know more is to come.
