The Hunt by Stacey Kade

The Hunt by Stacey Kade
2014, Disney-Hyperion
Series: Book 2 of Project Paper Doll

Synopsis: Ariane Tucker has finally escaped GTX, the research facility that created her. While on the run, Zane Bradshaw is the only person she can trust. He knows who-and what-she is and still wants to be part of her life.

But accepting Zane's help means putting him in danger.

Dr. Jacobs, head of GTX, is not the only one hunting for Ariane. Two rival corporations have their sights set on taking down their competition. Permanently. To protect Zane and herself, Ariane needs allies. She needs the other hybrids. The hybrids who are way more alien and a lot less human. Can Ariane win them over before they turn on her? Or will she be forced to choose sides, to decide who lives and who dies?

The Good: A good portion of this book was an on-the-run, road trip type deal. That almost never works for me, but it made complete sense in this case. Ariane and Zane needed that time together, as their relationship is very new and intense and they haven't had any real down-time together. This wasn't your typical relaxed situation, but it was a break from constant attack and gave they the opportunity to feel each other out. This introspection worked well with the more blatant outer turmoil both are going through. Zane's mom isn't likeable, but she is interesting and seems to have some unexpected answers. Surprisingly more interesting were the "presidential" hybrids and Ariane's deals with them.

The Bad: I didn't really love the cliffhanger ending.
