Hunted by Jill Kaelin Blog Tour

8;That's how old I was when I found out I was special. I was given my rose quartz gem and taught about my past.

13;That's how many times I've lived in this world. This is my thirteenth life cycle as a human.

1;That's how many seconds it took me to fall in love with Mike. It's also the amount of time I had to say goodbye to him just before he was killed by Reggie, the hunter that's been after me for months.

Will Reggie succeed in killing me too, and possibly eradicating the planet of the unicorn race forever?

Hunted: Cycle Thirteen: Book 1Hunted: Cycle Thirteen: Book 1 by Jill Kaelin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank the author Jill Kaelin for giving me this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed this story about Unicorns, it was a change of pace for me. The characters were nicely developed. I do wish that Skye had been a little less insecure or had better self-esteem at times. I mean she came from a nice family, no abuse, nothing to have low self-esteem about if you ask me. I understand one of her powers made her doubt, that is understandable, but not the low self-esteem. (that is just my opinion) Other than that the story was pretty good, I liked Skye's parents her best friend Jules and her boyfriend Mike. There were a couple of times I came across some editing issues, but nothing that would make you turn away from the story. I hope there is going to be more stories I would love to read more about these unicorns.

About the Author:

Since elementary school, I remember being in love with words.  Spelling them, writing them, reading them…I even hang them up around my house.  I think I owe my love of language to my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Templeton.  I can recall sitting around in a circle in that old, red-brick school, listening to her read aloud Greek mythology.  The oxymoron there was that she was the most prim and proper teacher I ever knew, right down to the white buttoned up blouse held together at the collar with a cameo pin.  The way she read made words come alive.
I had written a few things here and there throughout my life.  I used to think I’d be good at children’s books, and it wasn’t a far stretch since I worked with children every day and knew what they liked.  But then I read the series by Stephenie Meyer, maybe you’ve heard of it…Twilight.  This was the type of story I knew I had to write.  Teenagers were my audience.  It helped I had one at home to learn from.
My idea didn’t come in a dream.  No, I wasn’t that fortunate.  It happened through research.  And lots of it.  The only criteria I had was that I wanted my story to be different from everything else out there.  I wanted my story to stand out.  No vampires or werewolves.  No witches or wizards.  Unicorns were my choice.  And I think the story that unfolded is definitely unique.
