Summary

The books that inspired the SyFy series Hunters...

A young wife disappears in the night, never to be seen again. There is no evidence of kidnapping - in fact, everything indicates that she left on purpose. Her husband, a brilliant police detective, cannot believe this - but he also can't find her.

Flynn Carroll’s lost love becomes his obsession. He begins amassing a file of similar cases nationwide. His conclusion is unavoidable: somebody is taking people and making it look like they walked out on their own. As Flynn’s case files grow, his work comes to the attention of Special Agent Diana Glass, a member of the most secret police unit on the planet. This police force seeks the most brilliant and lethal criminals who have ever walked free - thieves and murderers from another world.

Without fully understanding what Glass and her team are doing, Flynn steps into a hidden world of extraordinary challenge and lethal danger. The job is the most difficult police assignment ever known to man, but the idea is the same - find the bad guys. Stop them.

Critic reviews

"Even those who usually stay away from alien fantasy will be drawn to this reality-based novel. The characters are complex and surprising at various points in the novel.... [Strieber's] excellent storytelling will keep readers guessing until the very end." ( RT Book Reviews)

Don't Know What To Think

Would you try another book from Whitley Strieber and/or Christian Rummel?

Probably not Strieber. The characters were so uneven the story is hard to follow. While characters being predictable isn't always a good thing, there must be story driven reasons for their actions. Events happen without narration, keeping the reader questioning how the story progresses. Think of this book as a very bad mix of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The X-Files, and somehow The Island of Doctor Moreau. It starts off with a good premise but quickly turns into a poorly rendered plot with holes so large you could fill an entire novel trying to explain them away.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure.

Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rummel is good at what he does. This book is on par with his others.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The best thing I can say is it had potential.

Any additional comments?

No.

Horrible

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Christian Rummel was amazing as usual. I gave up after about 3 hours. This book is just bad. If you want to read some great stuff from Stieber, read Communion, Transformation and Next. 3 amazing books. This book was just garbage. Drawn out nonsense that went nowhere.

Fabulous narration

I enjoyed this audio book, but it was the narration that kept me listening. Parts of the book really irked me, and if I'd been reading, I likely would have closed the book and never picked it up again. It was the narrator who kept me listening though. He provided such a smooth delivery, I just wanted to keep listening. Other than the few things the characters did that irked me, I did enjoy the story. It is an intriguing alien story. If Christian Rummel narrates, I may listen to another by this author.

Really Worth The Time And Money

Would you listen to Alien Hunter again? Why?

I think a second read would allow a different perspective on events that I enjoyed on the first listen.

What other book might you compare Alien Hunter to and why?

I wouldn't compare it to another book. This style of fiction hasn't really been my thing but I really enjoyed this and intend to keep listening to Mr. Strieber's work, this series in particular to start.

Which scene was your favorite?

Snow Mountain and Flynn in the final chapters, and any scene where Mack says anything at all.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Any additional comments?

Christian Rummel is professional and talented narrator. His delivery definitely added to my enjoyment of this story.

Don't waste time or credit

What disappointed you about Alien Hunter?

The story starts bad and goes downhill from there.

Would you ever listen to anything by Whitley Strieber again?

Not his fiction

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Rummel?

I think Rummel did the best with what he had to work with. He is a great narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

OK, lets get this out of the way, Strieber's claim to fame is he was abducted by aliens. His book " Contact" was made into a major motion picture yada ,yada, yada. With that being said, I have listened to his weird radio show (which is similar to Coast to Coast) and thought that he was intelligent, entertaining and had interesting guests, so I took a chance on this book. Writing fiction is not easy, Lord knows I have tried, but I would not wish this book upon my worst enemy.

Where's my tinfoil hat?

This was a very good idea for a novel, but it didn't live up to it's potential... It meandered and never really got any traction... Yeah, I know a novel about abductions, but I didn't expect it to be so unbelievably bland, and more than a bit silly in its wanderings...
