Publisher's Summary

In the post-apocalyptic aftermath, Megan Wolford is settling in with her makeshift family at the safe haven of their lodge, but she remains wary of trusting others. Despite her growing feelings for Wyatt Morris, the leader of the group, she still feels most secure on her own. But when she becomes separated from her beloved daughter Caitlin in a storm, Megan is in danger of losing the one thing keeping her fighting to stay alive. Injured and desperate, she must fight every instinct within her to rely on the others for help when they find evidence that Caitlin has been kidnapped. Wyatt is determined to do everything he can to bring her home, and he organizes a search party to visit a set of old adversaries in the guise of traders to try and find the missing girl - but Megan would rather take matters into her own hands. With Megan setting off alone to face unknown enemies, she is more vulnerable than ever. When a mysterious stranger known as the Green Woman appears to be a lead in finding Caitlin, she'll have to track her down. Can she put aside her stubborn need for independence and accept help from her newfound community before it's too late?

Enjoyable.

I enjoyed the first book but thought things were a little too easy for Megan, but I still decided to give book 2 a go to see if the series would redeem itself. Well, it did a bit. This one was more tense and action packed, but I still felt... I don't know, everything was, again, still too easy.

Plot wise, it's a lot more fast paced than book 1. Megan and Caitlin decide to go out hunting, but a storm comes in and they fall down a cliff. Megan loses consciousness and when she awakes she realises she can't see Caitlin. She's hurt too so searching for her is hard. Meanwhile Wyatt feels like something is wrong and goes in search of Megan. They find her badly hurt but can't find Caitlin. Taking Megan home, Wyatt knows he will have to do everything in his power to bring Caitlin back!

As I said, the plot was faster, but there were a few things I didn't like. One of which is a spoiler so I'm not going to talk about (Caitlin). Another thing is the fact that I disliked Megan in this!! She acted like a spoiled little so and so. I know she is out of her mind with worry but why would you treat Wyatt like that?? God forbid but if something were to happen like that to any of my boys, I'd be frantic and out of my mind, but I'd also know that people can only do their best, and Wyatt was going above and beyond for her, yet she blanked him. Her decisions left a lot to be desired!!

Wyatt was and is awesome. He does what he can for the people he loves!! I would love to see a bit more of him in the books. The rest of the family are great too. We get to see some more new characters too.

In all, a good story. I really hope the author realises that not everything would come easy during the apocalypse. I have yet to see them really struggle, which, unless you were a prepper, would be impossible. Though I reckon even being a prepper you would still struggle some.

Andrew Tell was clear and easy to listen to. He has plenty of tones and voices and read this well.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Annoying main character does annoying things

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I didn't listen to/read the first book, but, apart from not knowing why the EMP happened, I didn't feel like I missed much. That being said, the main character was SO annoying. She was self absorbed, like a spoiled teenager. Half of the book seemed like a temper tantrum. The narrator did a good job with what he had to work with.

Good book, entertaining, nice flow

What made the experience of listening to Dark Hunt the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed how Megean was always creating bad situations for the group. She never really thought about how her impetous self would cause so much trouble.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the way Wyatt always stood beside her as well as the family. I liked how the family unit was very involved and were willing to do anything to help strangers. Although cautiosly.

What about Andrew Tell’s performance did you like?

I have always enjoyed this narrator. He makes it very to follow the story

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book did both. I cried when the little girl went missing and laughed at Megans constant
trouble.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased the first one. I really like this author and narrator.

good book, good info

One of the things I like about this book is it gives out great info about herbs and such. I would think in the case of an EMP this would be great information. ( takes notes)
Its not often that a 2nd book to a series is as good as the first. I believe this book is just as good as the first.
Other then that, the story is good. I kind of think of this as light reading. it keeps you going, but its not a nail bitter. I would read anther book by her again.

Andrew good a good job on this book, and I would listen to him again.

A Spoiled Self Absorbed Twit Still Survives

Any additional comments?

I didn't read the first book of this series, but I don't feel that I missed anything. Evidently there was an EMP and the main character and her daughter survivied. How they did this I am not sure. If this book is any indication she should have been dead the first week. Bad choices, self absorbed behavior and selfish actions characterize her. Most of the time she seems to think like a spoiled teenager, even when people are trying to help her. Her mental conversations are painful. She gets mad, throws a temper tantrum, sometimes apologizes and does it again. Rash actions without thinking of consequences to others are the norm. Others around her seem to do fine, but are impacted by her childish behavior.
This in addition to unrealistic situations and mistakes in the plot made this a difficult book to endure. For instance the daughter of the main character is badly injured, has stitches, gets and infection, cries out in pain when sitting up and shortly after they plan to walk through the woods. People seem to recover in unrealistically short periods of time, and perform physical activity outside their capability.
Much of the thinking of the characters, mood swings, odd dialog and bad choices make this one a swing and a miss.

Good Sequel to the First Book

Grace Hamilton has provided a decent sequel to her first book in what is so far a four book series in her post EMP world. Megan is trying to settle into the newfound safe situation but is too independent for her own good. She is having trouble admitting her own growing feelings for Wyatt which maybe could her judgment. Megan gets separated from Caitling during a storm and they find later she was kidnapped. Megan needs help from the group to get her back. I recommend this book even with the 4-star rating I don't give it 5 just cause Megan and her female drama frakking drives me nuts at times.

Andrew Tell delivers another outstanding performance with this story. It was a pleasure to hear this great performance.

Stupid girl runs into danger stupid guy saves her

This is the most annoying series, the story is OK, but every book is about a stupid idiot girl trying to save the world , running into danger that she knows that she can not handle, but she knows that a stupid boy aka fake Rambo will rush in to save the day.

A Good Story With Some Frustration

3.75 out of 5 stars

It's been some time since the EMP* turned out all the lights and threw the world into the dark.  The cabin that everyone is staying in has kept everyone safe and sound for the time being. But now, a routine hunting trip took a turn for the worst when the weather changes and throws Megan and her new friends into a whole new dynamic.

The story in Dark Hunt was pretty enjoyable.  Everything was a little 'typical' for a Post-Apocalyptic book with a few exceptions.  Normally when you sneak up on another camp they shoot first and ask questions later.  When they got to another camp in this book they seemed to be welcomed with open arms.  Things just seemed to be a little too easy.  Granted, I've read much "easy" books with way less enjoyable characters before, but sometimes I want to see a group of people struggling.

Megan as a character started to rub me the wrong way in this book.  I can't tell if Hamilton was trying to write her this way or if I'm starting to just not like her personality.  She is the definition of running blindly into danger without even thinking about it.  When things start to seem like they're going to take too long -- she just takes off (like a child) running into the darkness trying to save what she has left.  Numerous times this almost has her killer or severely injured (or injured worse than she already was).

I'm happy that the "typical" PA romance took a backseat in Dark Hunt.  This was more about family and what people would do to save family than the actual "new love" that the characters potentially have.

Overall -- I like the series.  It's different enough from the other PA books that I read that I've been enjoying it.  Megan was starting to rub me the wrong way in this one, but the other characters were really enjoyable like before.  People were a little too trusting and I wonder if that will lead to some other issues in later books. I do have at least two more books in this series in my queue, so I'm curious where Hamilton takes the story. I hope that Megan grows as a person and starts to make safer and more adult choices.

*In my last review, I wrote that Hamilton messed up by calling the CME an EMP.  She really only does it once or twice in Dark Hunt so it bothered me a lot less in this one.  I just wish that there was a mini-edit to change EMP to CME in all these books.  I know that the narrations would have to change too, but it's wrong.

I received a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review of my opinion.
