The Huntress

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There’s a reason why I am pursuing a degree in psychology. I have always been horrified and confused when it came to the worst criminals, and this is one of the many things that have led to my passion for psychology. With some criminals, it’s obvious what drew them to commit such terrible things – but with others, it’s just downright baffling. I want to find out what really causes people who were before seemingly so normal and innocent, to suddenly lash out with such violence and cruelty. Take Ted Bundy, for example. He had a child and a wife and at one point he was MAJORING IN PSYCHOLOGY. Ted Bundy seemed like the most normal person in the world, and minus the fact he committed 30-40 gruesome murders, the rest of his profile, at least from an ordinary perspective, looked speckless. The reason he wasn’t caught for so long was because officials couldn’t believe it to be someone who had such charisma and seemed to live such a normal life.

He’s clearly very good at what he’s doing, it’s hard to imagine him being the cause of such mortifying murders. Ted Bundy, is somewhat similar to The Huntress. Yet, she is more fascinating, and also considerably less evil, although evil nonetheless. They are both master manipulators.

W O W.

I did not expect this. Not at all. I kind of skim-read the blurb, looked at all the high ratings, flicked through some reviews, added it to my TBR, then saw it on OverDrive and thought I might as well download it and give it a try.

I had no idea what I was getting myself involved in. This book is an absolute masterpiece, and every detail – from the amazing writing, to the careful thought on the technicalities of the fantasy element, to the increasing suspense and the narrator’s personality and humour… is MAGNIFICENT.

Five stars does not do this book justice. I mean it.
