The Red Hunter by Lisa Unger

The Red Hunter


Five pages was all it took for me to get enthralled in this story. Five pages to get captivated by the first protagonist. Five pages and I can’t wait to read the next page, the next chapter.

I’m about halfway done and I’m blown away by Zoey. She is one of those characters where I find myself saying, “Oh my God, I thought I was the only who felt like that”. Lisa’s writing is simply amazing.

Finished today and like her previous novel, “Ink and Bone”, The Red Hunter stays with you. There’s themes of the good and bad within all of us, of tearing down to rebuild, of healing from trauma and finding your own strength.

Zoey survives the murder of her parents, while being tortured and left for dead. She studies Kung Fu and embraces the spirituality that goes with it.

Claudia survives a brutal assault in her own home and lives with the triggers of PTSD. She takes on a home restoration project away from the ghosts of her past.

This novel is, in my opinion, one of Lisa Unger’s best. It’s gripping, compelling and powerful. I enjoyed it and am definitely recommending it to others.
