I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga is most certainly not a book for the faint of heart. Jasper is a character you can get behind and cheer for. Jazz is the classic underdog. he was raised by Billy Dent, serial killer extraordinaire, and what people seem to forget is that Jazz’s childhood was completely normal to him. It’s something some of us don’t learn until adulthood; that the dysfunctionalities of some aspects of our life aren’t everybody else’s normal. So Jazz is now trying to go back and undo everything he’s been taught. Jazz is fighting his upbringing with all he’s worth, but let’s face it he’s no angel. If he can get what he wants by “going Billy” he will do it.
I have to say this book was fast-paced, kept me guessing, and had some pretty awesome secondary characters. I loved Howie! I adore his sense of humor. 🙂
Lyga definitely knows how to leave his readers wanting more instantly. I’m so glad the second book is out and I don’t have to wait!
