Hunting Adeline

Holy hell.

I didn’t think it could get any darker from book one, but boy did H.D prove me wrong. No amount of trigger warnings could have prepared me for what I read. It was graphic and real and did NOT hold back anything.

Despite that, it was really well done. It brought a lot of awareness to this topic and gave an inside look of what trauma looks like and how someone heals from that. Putting yourself back together after terrible things happen is actually harder to do than survive the brutality.

Adeline went through absolute hell and trafficking is the sickest form of torture anyone can go through. She was resilient and brave and she was a survivor. She is the toughest character I’ve ever met and I was rooting for her even when she wanted to give up.

Zade on the other hand may as well change his middle name to morally gray with how he acts. He uses his skills and powers for good, and never hid his dark side from Adeline. Despite some unethical tactics to make Adeline his, he always reminded her of how strong she is and taught her how to fuel that fire. It certainly came in handy when he utilized his network and asked for help to get his mouse back.

I don’t think I’ll be able to forgive H.D for ending this book with an unknown of one of the characters she made me start rooting for or for trying to humanize one of the villains. This book was as raw as they come and had me in my feels for days.

I cannot in good conscious recommend this book to anyone because of the heavy content contained in each page, but I encourage those who are brave enough to pick it up and see if they can handle it.

Book Rating: 4/5
