This is a gripping tale of so very many things, such as revenge, betrayal, trust, Faith, and where is God when you need him? I noticed that Mr. Dellosso's work was compared to Frank Peretti on the front cover. I am here to tell you, that Mr. Dellosso's style of writing was more "down to earth" and faster paced in many areas than Mr. Peretti's work. I do not dislike Frank Peretti, please do not misconstrue that, it is just that I found The Hunted to be very refreshing, multi-faceted, and an very good read.
The plot was riveting, and it never got dull or boring. Quite an accomplishment!!! With scenes that could have fit into one my favorite TV shows, this book still was able to show a strong wonderful Christian message to the readers with out overpowering the plot.
The Hunted starts off strong, and ends even stronger! I also think a bit of a second book could be pulled out of the same characters and a few little openings I saw at the end of the book.
Extremely good work Mr. Delloso, and to those who haven't read The Hunted, "Fear Not", this book will not disappoint you!
