Donna Augustine is a relatively new to me author but I've really come to love her books, she's got a great imagination and skill when it comes to building improbable worlds, wonderfully strong characters and a really unique and enjoyable way of storytelling.
The Hunt is book two in her Wilds series.

OVERVIEW:
Living in the Wilds isn't any picnic, but I thought I had a handle on things: avoid the beasts and I won't get eaten, avoid the waterways and the pirates won't kill me, and stab every Dark Walker I see.

That was before I found out Tiffy's friends were real and back when I’d never heard of the Skinners. Now my magic is on the fritz, and people are disappearing. Dax doesn't want me to kill any Dark Walkers, and avoiding the beasts is impossible when I live with one. Amidst all this, I've become the most wanted woman around.

My Review


The Hunt 
The Wilds Series book #2
By Donna Augustine


Donna Augustine’s The Wilds series seamlessly picks right up with book two, The Hunt. Her main protagonist Dahlia continues to impress telling the story in first person keeping readers entertained with her age perfect, innocent misconceptions, smiling at the huge heart she tries to hide and gasping at her heroics. We’re introduced to new friends and foes while keeping tabs on all previous characters and waiting on the next calamity. Donna makes the unbelievable believable keeping us on the edge of our seats bringing The Wilds into brilliant focus with her vividly descriptive and amazingly inventive world building.

Book 1 recap: Dahlia may be the last surviving “Plaguer” (someone who caught the disease and survived) of the apocalyptic disease called “The Bloody Death” that almost wiped out humanity. One side effect of plaguers is having increased psychic/magic abilities including seeing “Dark Walkers”, beings who want plaguers eliminated. Dax and his friends from “The Wilds” rescued her for this very ability.

After establishing herself in “The Wilds” community, Dahlia believes she’s finally found a home and friends in the first place since before she became a Plaguer that she feels safe. She’s trying to fit in, to be a valuable asset to the community, to find her niche. And above all else to be strong and not have to depend on anyone for help. And then there’s Dax, even though he’s revealed his “beast” to her, he’s still an enigma and she still can’t read his thoughts. Plus this girlish desire for him has to stop because even though it feels like he might be the right one she knows he’s wrong for her. At least he’s helping her to find her magic because one thing they can count on is the “Dark Walkers” haven’t given up their search for her and she has to be ready and able to defend herself and those she cares about when the battle continues.
