Author: Jeremy Robinson
Publisher: Breakneck Media (May 19, 2011)
Genre: YA Fantasy
Book Description: I was thirteen years
old when I was kidnapped. They took me from my family, from my
friends-from everything I knew, and stole my innocence. They brought me
to a world beneath the surface of Antarctica, where I was broken and
trained by a hunter named Ninnis. He served the ancient Nephilim:
half-human, half-demon monsters. My personality was buried in my
subconscious and replaced by that of Ull, a hunter and killer. For a
time, I too served the Nephilim. As the first and only human born on
Antarctica, they believed that I could contain the spirit of their
fallen king, Nephil, and lead them to conquer humanity. But I was
stronger than they knew and escaped deep into the underworld, where I
have been hiding for the past two years. I live in a cavern, which is
somehow lush with green vegetation, eking out a living and cowering from
the confrontation that I know awaits me. But the nightmare has found
me. I can smell them. The hunters. They have discovered my hideout. The
pursuit of Solomon Ull Vincent-the last hunter-has begun. And if they
catch me, this is where my story will end.
First line: Lieutenant Ninnis was once a proud man.
Last line read: None of that is on display here.
Overall Impressions: I had read The Last Hunter: Descent a long time ago. I didn't even know more books had been written until recently. Robinson gives some brief background on who people are and the like, which I found to be very helpful. The pacing and tension is great, and I was able to pick up on what was going on in this second book in the saga. Solomon is such a strong character, and the sample is adventurous and thrilling.
Would I keep reading?: Yes!
