    One thought on “Bounty Hunter”

    1. What is Bounty Hunter Really About?I have been reliably informed that it is tradition here on to review your own book. Seems odd, but I’m a sucker for tradition. Won’t catch me eating anything but turkey come Christmas Day, and I always wear my paper hat. Actually, this is a brilliant opportunity to tell you what you’re really getting into when you pick up this book. Yes, there are witches and demons and magic, distant planets and spaceships. It’s a science fiction fantasy where the wor [...]

    2. SummaryThe book is beautifully written, and kept me engaged all to the last minute, in a fantasy world where the author treats jokingly everything, even the apocalypse, with the skill of a great writer.My advice: ignore the blurb. It starts well, but, to me, it gives the wrong idea in the end about what matters in this book. It comes across as too hyperbolic and doesn't do it justice.We can ignore the title, too, while we're at it. Did you think it'd be about bounty hunting? It's not.We're in an [...]

    3. 7/10I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I can promise you that this book is unlike any other you have read. It's a real pick and mix of fantasy, sci-Fi and dystopia. Magic, witches, demons, aliens. Alternate universes, space travel, new technologies. All of which excited me immensely. It was refreshing to have the main character, Kai as a realistic teenager. A bit cocky and self assured on the outside, not so much on the inside. A bit of a trouble make [...]

    4. This is the complete review as it appears on my reading, writing, TV and Movies blog. Note that links in the blog review are not reproduced here, nor will I refresh this version with any updates or modifications which take place on my blog.Note: mild spoilers!This novel was an easy read. It lasts about four hours according to my Kindle's count-down which appeared from nowhere some time ago at the bottom of my screen with neither warning nor explanation. It used to tell me how many minutes to the [...]

    5. Great, fun read – good storyWhen I picked up Bounty Hunter, I initially wondered whether it was going to be a slow read or if I was going to bounce and space jump with it like the description indicated. After reading the first few pages, I didn't have to worry. I knew I was going to like it. So much that I read it all in one sitting – well, actually that's a lie. I went out twice – once for a cappuccino so I could curl on the sofa with some white choc and cranberry cookies, and then some V [...]

    6. Great read!I couldn't put this book down, so I ended up reading it in one sitting and getting nothing done. I just couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next.I love the characters, the demons, the story, the writing, the planets and universes. I loved it all! I had no idea I would love this story so much, based on the description I was a little disinterested. I guess I can't judge a book by its cover or its summary.Kai, the main character, is a very likeable young teenage boy. In the beg [...]

    7. This book has a beautiful eye catching cover and is the main reason I wanted to read it. I always feel it's important to mention the cover with indie books as they are the thing that help them stand out from all the other indie books. I wasn't sure how i'd get on with the plot. I always want to like books featuring demons, witches and other urban fantasy stuff but I've not found that book yet that really grabs me. This book however, is the game changer! I loved it. The alternative version of Ear [...]

    8. "Snazzy beards and hypothetical chickens"I came across this book by chance and I'm so glad I did.It was the artwork that captured my attention first (as all book covers should) that then led me to discovering a beautiful new world created by S.J. HollisThe book itself was exciting, fun and beautifully imaginative. As I was reading, I fell in love with the playful and natural style of writing and found it unbelievably comfortable and easy to read. It was so easy to create this world visually in [...]

    9. Bounty Hunter” is a very creative book which is primarily aimed at young adults however I think a good well written book appeals to all ages and in my opinion this meets the criteria. I am well past being a young adult and I thoroughly enjoyed it.!The plot is fast moving and full of action and a touch of humour. There are lots of twists and turns - it certainly was not predictable - and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Kai is a treasure – a mixed up teenage boy who is not sur [...]

    10. Rating: 9.0/10.0Review: This book was a real page-turner. From the first few pages I was hooked and didn't want to put the book down. I loved the way the characters were built. The way they conversed made them feel so real. Every one of my readers know that I'm a huge post-apocalyptic genre fan, and this book definitely didn't disappoint me. I loved how the world actually ended (the world as the characters knew it). The best part of the book is that you laugh throughout it, even though there is [...]

    11. Let me preface this review by stating that apocalyptic scenarios are not my usual fare.Yet, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Hollis' writes a delightful fantasy tale with a bit of humor sprinkled in. I do like futuristic stories,though,and this fits the bill on that front.The young central character Kai is forced to grow up really fast, with one setback and challenge after another.Incredibly he perseveres with remarkable resilience.The dialogue is sophisticated and the pictures that Hollis paints [...]

    12. I've known S.J. Hollis for a few years now and knew she could write, but this so exceeded even my wildest expectations. Just read it straight through in all of 3 hours, and can't wait for the next installment in Kai's story.It's got all the snark and humour and adventure I was expecting, but so much more besides: brilliant magic, great characters and such a uniquely interesting blend of science fiction with fantastical elements. I absolutely love it (and I'm not just saying that because she's my [...]

    13. Well! great idea for a book and very well written, the characters are very like-able, the story has a very easy to read flow about it.If you like stories about witches and spaceships and demons, this is the book for you!!I am very much looking forward to book 2 S.J. Hollis

    14. I was lucky enough to be given a free copy in exchange for a review.This did not change my opinion of the book because it was a real page turner.The author puts a bit of humor here and there mixed with action.She is truely talented and I hope this book does well enough for her to do more books.

    15. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thanks to the autor and We ♥ YA Books! for this opportunity.I could happily just say it’s one of those books you MUST read, because that pretty much resumes the important stuff, but I’m gonna try to let you know why you must read it. There are a few things you must know since the beginning.♦In this fascinating world that S.J. Hollis has created, the post-apocalyptic earth, there are THREE things not welcome: aliens, demons and witche [...]

    16. Bounty Hunter had been on my to-read list for the longest time, so my expectations were high. Super high. And Bounty Hunter more than exceeded those expectations.I was drawn in from the very first page, where we meet our protagonist, Kai Koson. A fourteen-year-old witch in a world where witches are bottom of the Christmas card list, his whole life has been about survival. Given that he almost becomes demon fodder within the first chapter and that we quickly learn he has been forced to live life [...]

    17. What a fantastic story! Years ago I jotted down a few ideas for a short story based around the union of advanced technology and magic, I fancied the term technomancy, but aside from making notes I never got around to writing it.I'm glad I didn't because I doubt it would have been anywhere near as good as Bounty Hunter! If you're looking for an action packed story with amazing characters and a gripping plot, you need to read this.Some book lovers tend to gravitate to one specific genre, but I'll [...]

    18. The first and most important thing I can say is how much fun this book is.Being long past the days I can call myself a Young Adult I came to the book with no experience of reading YA fiction. I am more used to reading Iain M Banks, Alastair Reynolds et al so I was a little unsure of what to expect but I immediately found I had nothing to worry about.If Science Fiction has sometimes said to be Westerns in space then this book started with the equivalent of a fight in a saloon bar and then the her [...]

    19. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for letting me be a part of another great tour!It’s been a while since I’ve read a fantasy book, which it’s really based just on fantasy! Loved it! I missed the feeling of reading this type of book. It kept me intrigued the whole time, and I rarely find a book that does that, with such skills. Have you ever seen how a little kid acts on Christmas? That was me when I read Bounty Hunter. It has everything, and [...]

    20. I am blown away by this book. I didn’t except to like it this much. When the story begins Earth had been taken down by demons and most all modern tech-knowledge is gone. These crazed breast hunt for any hint of magic left, so they can destroy it. The demons hate witches and can often see their magic in their eyes. In the opening scenes, young Kai is fighting for his life against one of these huge insane creatures. Sam, a bounty hunter, helps Kai and offers him a job after she helps him conquer [...]

    21. While this one starts off slightly confusing, it all comes together in the end. Why is it confusing, you ask? Because the entire story is from Kai’s point of view. He doesn’t know what is going on half the time, so as the reader neither do we. Like why he’s just a magnet for the demons, how they can see so quickly that he is a magic user, and why his uncle is so damn strange.Of course, when Kai finds out just what is going on, it doesn’t make his life any easier. Just the opposite, in fa [...]

    22. i received this book through the making connections group, the author sent me the book for an honest review.wow! i can't think of anything that wouldn't spoil the story so i will start with the basics. Lets see now, the basic plot of this book was good but in my opinion could have been better hence the four stars instead of five. The characters were very interesting each with their own secrets and woes from their pasts, though some of them were strong enough to overcome that and fought for a bet [...]

    23. This book had me hooked from the first page. I instantly fell for the gorgeous cover which tempts you straight in and once inside I was caught up with a fast, exciting and at times, humorous plot.Each character was so well written that I soon made good friends with them. Kai is our main character but Galway and Sam are also strong personalities. Several twists in the story leave you holding your breath whilst turning the pages. If you are a fan of Rick Riordan, Alex Scarrow and Michael Grant the [...]

    24. Bounty Hunter is the age-old tale of a teenager’s rites of passage…scratch that. There was nothing age-old about it! Kai, a teenage witch on the run finds himself in the most dangerous and dire of situations. Only through the new-found friendships and a revealing open honesty with an old one, is he able to overcome the many obstacles this world throws at him. This book is very well paced with lots of action and nail-biting over the characters many perils. Though the world and its situations [...]

    25. Okay I confess, I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. But did that mean I had to read it twice… Nope.Out of all the books I have to read, I couldn’t help but grab my laptop and read it a second time before I wrote my review. The Bounty Hunter has everything you want for a great YA adventure. S.J. Hollis did an awesome job creating a futuristic world, there is so much detail you can easily imagine what your reading. I especially liked the way she created the demons, they are [...]

    26. A great read for ten years and above. This book has a bit of everything to appeal to lovers of science fiction, paranormal, humour, adventure and adolescent issues for both boys and girls alike. The title is a little misleading as there isn't much time spent on bounty hunting. However the plot is well crafted to captivate the reader making you keen to find out how the crew of the Derkomai will extricate themselves from each predicament they encounter. Will Kai solve the mystery of his past and u [...]

    27. This is a great book! Interesting and likeable characters. Original story and universe. Funny and entertaining. Highly recommend it!

    28. Young Kai is in deep trouble. His magic is awakening and attracting demons who want to harm him. So far, he has lived all of his life on the run with his uncle, and now he’s tired of running. By chance he meets Sam, a fiery red-headed bounty hunter, and he runs away to join up with her crew and escape the reality that is his life.Unfortunately, it turns out that Kai is the direct descendant of those responsible for mass genocide on Earth. That puts him and his new friends in serious danger, ev [...]

    29. S.J. Hollis' Bounty Hunter is an excellent read for young or adult readers who enjoy sci-fi and fantasy. It is essentially a coming-of-age apocalyptic/dystopian, following the story of a fourteen year old boy, Kai, and how he struggles being a hunter when he is the hunted. by the whole galaxy! Kai is an unfortunate boy as the reader realises that he understands very little about the truth of his very early life. Being brought up by his uncle, Galway, he is used to running from town to town every [...]

    30. From the words of the thirteen-year-old who shares his thoughts on YA books with me: “Awesome! I would so love to be there! I loved it! Kai cracked me up!You know that part… I hated the witch queen…” There you have it from a member of the target audience, and I agree! Bounty Hunter by S. J. Hollis is a fantasy YA adventure filled with over-the-top action, larger-than –life characters and more than one battle against evil by an unlikely group od heroes. In a post-apocalyptic universe wh [...]
