Audiobook Review: Hunter (Prison Planet, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hunter by Emmy Chandler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“He wants her released into the enclosure. He wants to hunt her.”

Recaptured during her escape from zone four, Maci Bishop wakes up in the mysterious, heavily fortified zone two, where wealthy citizens come to sate sordid, homicidal appetites by hunting death row inmates in a wooded enclosure. Live on camera, for spectators watching from the Resort. 

Maci is rented as a plaything for a guest at the Resort, but when she kills her first customer in self-defense, her life sentence quickly becomes a death sentence. To teach the other women a lesson, the warden throws Maci into the enclosure, to be hunted alongside a vicious death row inmate named Callum.

Though at first he believes the beautiful, half-naked woman is bait intended to lure him out, Callum saves Maci from a brutal death. As they fight their way through the enclosure, taking on hunters, guards, and ruthless robotic hounds, he falls hard for the tiny, clever hellcat and discovers she may just have the skills to get them both out of the enclosure alive.

But Maci won’t abandon the other women to pay for her escape. Not again. She won’t be satisfied until she shuts down the entire Resort: clients, guards, hounds, and all. And there’s no way in hell Callum will let her walk into the lion’s den alone…


The hunter becomes the hunted!

The heroine: Macie – she played a big part in the first book, Guardian. Macie is 20 Earth years old, but looks a lot younger than that and Audra took Macie under her wing when they arrived on the prison planet and were in danger in Zone 4. Now Macie is having to deal with things alone after being moved to Zone 2, otherwise known as “The Resort”.

The Hero: Callum – Callum is on death row on the prison planet. Also in Zone 2. “The resort is very different for male prisoners than the female, non death row inmates. Callum has been there for nearly a year and it is his turn to be executed.

The Story: The women are in barracks and are required to keep everything clean, including themselves. Once a day they are brought to posh suites of rooms where they have to be naked ‘companions’ for wealthy men. When Macie kills the man trying to rape her, she is then relegated to be put to death.

The men on death row, get put in the enclosure where they are hunted by wealthy men. It is Callum’s turn, but when the man hunting Callum finds out that Macie murdered his brother, he decides he wants to be the one to put her to death, so she is put in the enclosure along with Callum. As seen in the first book, Macie has some sort of psychic ability where she knows ahead of time when certain things are going to happen. She has nothing left to lose so she plans on killing the hunter, not unlike Callum who plans on taking as many people down as he can before he dies.

Like the first book, this was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Narrated by Jillian Macie and Aiden Snow who both did a terrific job. In the first book, I thought Jillian sounded a bit too old, but I don’t think that is true in this one. I am not sure if she used a different voice or accent or maybe I just got used to her narration, but I liked it in this one. Aiden Snow, as always has a deep sexy voice which I love. I could listen to him all day.

The one thing I didn’t like, which I hate in any science fiction romance books is when the two main characters don’t speak the same language. Also, one thing I can’t stand in books, is when couples pause in dangerous situations for sexy time. These two people are being hunted in the woods by a hunter armed with a high tech laser gun and they do that pause on more than one occasion. Though the best part about this one was that meek little Macie turned out to be a kick-ass heroine.
