HUNTED is the electrifying sequel to the bestselling debut BRANDED, A Sinners Series, by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki.

It’s been three months since the revolt against the Commander’s fifty-year-old regime failed.

Under a new ruler, things were supposed to change. Get better.

But can anyone really be trusted?

Lexi and Cole soon find out, as life takes an unexpected turn for the worse.

In this ever-changing world, you must hunt or be hunted.

Lives will be lost.

Dreams will be crushed.

Fears will be realized.

Secrets will be exposed.

When Cole is once again faced with losing Lexi at the hands of a monster, one encounter will change everything.


Alright, so where do I begin? This is the sequel to Branded, which I totally adored. So if you have not picked up this book you should.

Plot: A quick re-cap would be in this world you are branded by your sin. Lust, pride, anger, etc. So in this story, Lexi is on the run with Cole, a former guard at the hole. I can tell you that  this plot is very fast paced. It definitely takes the reader in right away, spinning you off in car chases, gun fights, and lots of losses.

Losses/Friendships: One of the best things about the book is the relationships that are established. I really like how each relationship either builds up or brings down the characters. There are lots of secrets to be unraveled. I mean, with every turn of the chapter is got better and better.

Ending: I have to admit that there are certain things I did not see coming. It made me feel off. Like, how could that happen? THAT was not supposed to happened! Just so many accusations, secrets and torture that by the end, it left me shaken up.

My only issue is that the story felt (in the beginning) like it did the first book. It was pretty much the same story until the middle where things began to change. Other than that, I really enjoyed the story.

I would recommend this book to those who love dystopian. It is much different than what is put out there all the time on the shelves. Hunted is awesome!

    I haven’t read the first book in the series, but it does sound pretty interesting. I’m just not into dystopian these days, though! I will definitely keep the series in mind. Fab review!
