'Brilliant and addictive . . . Think of The Hunger Games with vampires' Richelle Mead, author of the bestselling Vampire Academy series
Against all odds, 17-year-old Gene has survived in a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It's the only way to stay alive in a world of night.
Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt. When Gene is selected to be one of the combatants he must learn the art of the hunt - but also elude his fellow competitors as suspicions about his true nature grow.
His need to survive is stronger than ever - but is it worth the cost of his humanity?
