Eve and Jess are teenage best friends, shopping partners, and demon butt-kickers: the combined power of the Deepdene Witch and a hardcore cheerleader is a force to be reckoned with. Luke, the new boy about town who just happens to be a minister's son, is becoming part of Eve and Jess's team... but in a triangle of teenage friends, can friendship run smoothly?

Relationships, friendly and otherwise, are questioned when members of the Deepdene community start disappearing... only to be found in the kind of shape that calls for a closed coffin. Yeah, it's pleasant stuff.

Amy Meredith does a great job in describing the rising terror of the small-yet-exclusive town of Deepdene and yet keeping the fantastically adolescent voices of the characters realistic: let's face it, even if there were corpses of classmates turning up in the shrubbery, the important stuff like gossip, shopping, and ... uh... homework still go on.

Recommendation: The Hunt builds on the setup of story and characters from Shadows in a way that not only deepens the reader's relationship with both, but also provides a well-paced pageturner. I really enjoyed it.

Rating: 4/5
