"Cheryl Rainfield writes a masterful dystopian fantasy novel with a gripping plot that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. The story is well written and steadily paced. . . This is a marvelous read for those teens who loved The Hunger Games."
"Cheryl Rainfield has provided young adults with an outstanding science fiction novel...It is a novel full of tension and suspense as the action begins on the first page and keeps pressing right until the end...Caitlyn is a strong female protagonist who never loses sight of what she must do to not only save her fellow Paras from destruction but also to save all of the Normals who are sympathizers for her cause. ... Hunted is not the science fiction of spaceships and aliens but something much more subtle and so close to realistic that it is frightening. Perhaps there are no Paras in society as we know it, but we still struggle with people who are seen to be somehow different from societal norms... Rainfield asks many tough questions, but deciding what you truly believe in and then being willing to stand up and fight for it is the real centrepiece of this novel
