5.0 out of 5 stars Wow.......I did not see that coming 28 April 2015
By I Feel the Need, the Need to Read book blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been waiting and waiting for this book. I have been anticipating this so much that when I got it, I practically couldn't breathe. I wanted to devour this book in one sitting but new if I did, I wouldn't be happy it was over so fast. I can tell you that reading it slower does not alleviate the pain of it being over and having to wait for the next one.

Lexi has grown in this book. While it may have been it 3 months since she left the Hole, she has witnessed and experienced so much while in the Hole and on the run that she has had to adapt to her surroundings. There are things that she does in this installment that shocked me because the Lexi that was in Branded wouldn't have done those things. She's matured and realized that there are things that need to be done even if they are out of the norm for you.

The authors put you through every emotion in this book. My heart was wrenched out of my chest numerous times. I was laughing, scared, dumbstruck, and taken aback throughout. I was shocked by the secrets that were revealed and by the old characters showing up and I wasn't sure what was going to come around the next literary corner. When I finished the book, I messaged Abi Ketner and asked her something along the lines of why she hated me so much that her and her partner in crime would do that to me.

I am even more impatient for the next book. I have no clue what to expect in the next book, even though it's entitled Liberated, because Abi & Missy shocked me with this one. I thought I knew what was going to happen but I was completely wrong. The authors did such a good job with the character growth and world creation that I have super high expectations for the next one. No pressure or anything. ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense with non-stop action! 29 April 2015
By Vilma's Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
“I promise you this: you will be hunted down, and I will stop at nothing to find you.”

Hunted—the much awaited follow-up to the YA dystopian novel Branded—bleeds with intensity and nail-biting drama. Lexi and Cole are on the run and they don’t encounter a moment of peace. Nothing comes easily as they try to outrun Wilson’s merciless guards and avoid returning to the Hole… a place of brutal anarchy and cruelty. The novel is very plot-driven and focuses on their experiences while they’re in pursuit. I absolutely loved the first book—it felt as if I held my breath from the first page to the last— and while this one captured some of that addictive nervous energy, there were things that felt very different and made the experience a bit divergent from what I expected.

“I’ll always protect you. I love you, Lexi, and I protect what I love.”

Cole remains loyal to the death, willing to protect the woman he loves at all cost. I definitely felt his unfailing dedication to Lexi, and hers to him. I did, however, miss the angst of the forbidden romance… the coming together… the risking it all for love feeling that the first novel evoked. In this second installment, danger certainly surrounds them, but they are primarily together and their relationship is mainly advanced through the plot. They do face some challenges… a secret with the power to destroy their relationship, but it felt a bit forced at the beginning, even though by the time the secret was revealed, it was certainly worth the wait.

Cole continues to struggle with the man he was versus who he is and wants to be for Lexi. Under the rule of the Commander, Cole had to shut off his feelings and do some unforgivable things. Could Lexi forgive his transgressions if she knew the extent of what he had done?

“I’m in love with you, Cole. I don’t care about the person you once were. I only care about the person you are today. Everything you have gone through helped shape the person you are now, and that man is my hero.”

Wilson is the true and worthy antagonist in the novel and what he does to the Sinners is atrocious. Cole and Lexi, along with some friends with whom they meet up, are doing everything humanly possible to avoid Wilson’s torturous vise, but then, everything changes when some of their worst fears are realized. They must face their enemy head on.

One of the other issues that weighed on me (without going into details), was that I was looking for the confrontation the story was naturally leading up to, and it didn’t really happen. Ketner and Kalicicki did deliver a conclusion that was awesomely epic, but I nonetheless felt the absence of the encounter I anxiously awaited.

So overall, mixed feelings on a story I’ve loved. Readers of the first book will thrive on the continued intensity and devotion between its two protagonists. I do wish some of the story’s elements were tightened, but reading experiences will likely vary in a story that is meant to get your pulse pounding and your heart racing. The story does end with a jaw-dropping moment that had questions swirling immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping. Thrilling. Unforgettable. 28 April 2015
By Katelyn Grasso - Published on
I can’t even begin to describe how incredible this book is. Abi and Missy have truly outdone themselves. I picked up "Branded" not realizing what I was getting myself into. And now after reading "Hunted," I know that I’ll be in this until the very end!

I absolute adored "Hunted." It’s full of bone-chilling plot twists and astounding realizations that kept me up all night long. Some of the conflicts and situations that Lexi had to go though, I couldn't even imagine them happening. It’s like what I was reading stepped straight out of my nightmares, and I couldn't wait to see what Lexi would do next! But where "Hunted" had its compelling moments, it was also had times where I was laughing so hard it made my gut hurt. Zeus had me cracking up. Even though Zeus walks around on all fours, is covered in fur, and occasionally sniffs his butt, he constantly reminded me that there’s still some good in the dark world Abi and Missy profoundly created. I loved the balance that Abi and Missy fabricated between action and humor. With both of these elements, they've created a show-stopper of epic proportions, and I couldn't have asked for more from these remarkable authors.

With the action of "The Hunger Games" and the suspense of "The Murder Complex," "Hunted" will keep readers on the edge of their seats, and will leave them with wanting more! I highly recommend this one if you like an action-packed dystopian full of romance, sacrifice, astounding realizations, and unique plot twists. With an unexpected ending, "Hunted" has captured my attention. I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you thought Abi and Missy left you hanging at the end of Branded, wait till you get to the end of this book! 12 May 2015
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on
A fast paced, action packed sequel! If you thought Abi and Missy left you hanging at the end of Branded, wait till you get to the end of this book. You'll wish you already had Liberated in your hands. Just be prepared for one crazy, thrill ride of a read. Abi an Missy don't gently ease fans back into their dark and twisted world. You better buckle up and prepare for the fast paced, dangerous world of Hunted.

Abi and Missy pick up the story right where they left fans hanging in Branded. From the first page, readers are thrust right back into Lexi and Cole's troubled world. Not to be out done by their debut, this sequel is one heck of a thrill ride. With nonstop action, heart pounding moments, the right amount of sizzling chemistry, and swoon worthy scenes (yep, I said swoon worthy, because I don't know how else to describe them), fans will find it hard to look away from this book for even a moment. I imagine if this book played out on the big screen, I'd walk out of the theater with my adeline running, and my stomach hurting for sitting on the edge of my seat, and holding my breathe so much. There's so much happening in this book, that from beginning to end, this book reads quickly.

Cole and Lexi have had to deal with a lot, and things are about to get a lot crazier. Both characters have a lot to deal with, not just because of all the craziness going on around them, but because of their own demons. Even though some of the things are predictable about what's to come, I still found myself emotionally wrapped up into the things the characters, like Cole & Lexi (cough, cough) experience, and are trying to deal with. I liked that we get to see some old friends and characters we previously met in Branded, back in Hunted, and the roles they played with Cole and Lexi's return to a certain place that will not be named.

Abi and Missy do a great job with describing the world, and events that each of the characters are going through. I wasn't excepting to be so caught up into the story like I was. Let's face it, if you're read Branded, then you know this book's setting is essentially what I imagine hell on earth would be like. Okay, sort of. Minus the brimstone and all that. Though I'm pretty sure if I asked the characters, they would all agree it's hell. As Cole and Lexi know, not all things always go as plan. That includes running away to the very thing Cole and Lexi have been running from. These two find themselves right back at the place that started it all. Only this time, things are a different. These two are driven by the very things that haunt them from the first book.

I like that Hunted has that good mix of attitude, action, humor, and romance. It's all intertwine perfectly. I like that even in the bleakest of times, there's either something humorous to laugh at or something to fan yourself over, because of the swoon factor. The thing is, these moments are moments that are very much apart of the relationships in this book, and I liked that even with all that's going on, these stolen moments were crucial for the characters. They felt realistic. With all the bad going on, these little moments between the various characters were moments of hope, or a moment to forget about the daunting tasks that lay ahead or the hurt that's driven them to this point. These moments were my favorite part of the book.

Over all, I liked Hunted. It's not often that I feel like a sequel lives up to the debut or surpasses it, but I feel like this book does. I'd recommend this book to both YA and NA readers. Hunted is one of those books that is great for readers that are looking for something that crosses over from YA to NA, and fits in perfectly with either place on the shelf. It's an edgier, darker read, with plenty of action, violence, some language and sexual references/scenes. If you like Branded, you'll like the direction that Hunted takes the story in, and you'll be wishing Liberated was already in your hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared for nonstop action and LOTS of surprises! 29 April 2015
By Holly B. in NC - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Note: I was one of a lucky few to win an ARC in a giveaway from Month9Books. Thank you to the publishers for allowing me to read an early copy. Although I received the copy for free, it in no way affects my rating or review of this book.

The second book in the Sinners series, following BRANDED, HUNTED starts with a bang and literally does not let up in action until it's over ... at which time you're left saying, "Wait...what? What just happened? That's it?? NOOOOO, that can't be it! You can't just leave me hanging like that!!" Oh, yeah. Be prepared for a fairly substantial cliffhanger, which will leave you absolutely starving for book 3, LIBERATED, and I don't know when it comes out but it can't come fast enough.

HUNTED begins 3 months after the events of BRANDED, and Wilson has basically become Commander #3, even though not in name. While there was a lot of action in BRANDED, we also had some down-time / slower parts of the story, especially when Lexi would have memories, when she was working at the hospital, or when all the revolt planning was taking place. In HUNTED, however, it's pretty much a go-go-go thrill ride from page 1! I read this book much faster than I did the first, because of that. Lexi and Cole are essentially forced to return to the Hole (and I'm so glad that the authors gave us a GOOD reason for their doing so, and I didn't find myself irked at their stupidity for going back under some flimsy ruse of a reason), along with Bruno and Grace, and they find an unexpected ally or two back in the Hole who help them in their quest to topple Wilson. I have already told Abi and Missy that they made me have a big fat UGLY CRY, thank you very much -- so prepare yourself for more than one shocking event/revelation along the way! You can do that at the same time you prepare yourself for that cliffhanger ;)

I'd say that the only thing I missed, and that I loved so much in book 1, was the chemistry and sexual tension (or sexy-times, even) between Lexi and Cole -- BUT I know that it kind of had to be that way, for the sake of the story. I mean, it was smart of the authors not to try to force that into the story, because even though I missed it, had it been there I think it would have been kind of jarring due to the situations and settings in which they found themselves. Just not exactly the time you're clamoring to get hot and heavy, if you know what I'm saying. The one time they got close fit quite naturally into the story, in my opinion. So, I applaud their decision not to try to force more Lexi+Cole "action" in there, even if I did miss it a bit!

Basically, if you enjoyed BRANDED, you MUST read HUNTED. Trust me, you want to know what happens next. I applaud the authors for their bravery in pretty much writing without limits...and that's all I'll say about that. I absolutely, positively *cannot wait* until I can get my hands on LIBERATED. Happy reading!
