Book Review: The Deadlands: Hunted

Book: The Deadlands: Hunted

Author: Skye Melli-Wegner

Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for an advanced audio copy.

I absolutely loved this book! The Deadlands: Hunted is the first book in this new series and I can not wait for more. It’s a middle-grade series not a middle age like me but who cares it was a lot of fun. When I was younger I loved the movie The Land Before Time, this felt like a more mature version of that.

The plot was interesting and very easy to follow. The characters are all dinosaurs but it was so easy to relate to them. The main character Eleri is just the best. He may be small but he is brave. I loved watching his character really develop.

This was an excellent way to start a series. You set up a wonderful group of characters, get us to fall in love with them all, and then set the plot. This book was mostly all set up but it feels like much more than that. Now that they understand their world and their conflict I can not wait to see where book 2 will take us.

If you’re middle grade or middle age I can’t recommend this book enough.

Final score 5/5
