Series: Weird Girls #0.3
When offered this book for review, I was skeptical, as I read none of the books in the series. However, when I learnt, it worked well as a stand-alone and, it was a prelude to the events in the other books; I took the plunge. I am so glad I did.
This story was so much fun. It had me laughing, and it kept on the edge of my seat. Chock full of surprises it pulled me in from the first line and never let go until the end. It left me wanting more of the characters and the unique world Cecy created. Told from Aric’s POV, the story gave me an insight into his feelings for his parents, friends and most of all Celia. His feelings for her was clear to everyone, but he took a while to see what was staring him in the face.
Spending time with the characters was a delightful experience. The interaction between Aric, Celia, and his friends was rife with humour, adventure, never ending action and danger. Liam was the life of the story. You cannot help but laugh at his antics even when he is annoying.
I enjoyed the budding romance between Aric and Celia. Heartfelt and innocent it will tug on your heartstrings and have rooting for them. His protective nature shined throughout the pages, especially with Celia’s safety.
As stated earlier the story is filled with surprises. The most shocking of all was the twist near to the end of the story. The events at this point were heartbreaking. The epilogue however provided hope.
I loved the brief introduction to this unique world. Intriguing, mysterious and magical. I cannot wait to delve further into this world.
Gone Hunting is a satisfying introduction to the world of the Weird Girls for new readers and fans of Urban Fantasy. If you are familiar with the series, you will enjoy this peek into the teenage years of your favourite characters.
