The Hunted Tribe by Roma Gray is going to be a great series. I just know it. Roma Gray is really good at blending ordinary life with the magical and fantastical. The writing and the characters really stand out in Declaration of War, the first book of the Hunted Tribe series. One of the things I like most about this novel is the characters. They are all flawed and so human, but they are good people. The kind of people you are surrounded by in the real world. There is no struggle more noble than humans battling against all hope against the inhuman; and in the Grishla, a mystical being with roots in the animal kingdom, we have a worthy and very frightening opponent indeed.

To be honest, there isn't anything I don’t like about this story. Author Roma Gray writes very well. The pace was excellent. Not too fast and not too slow. Sean Wolf, despite being a genius and potentially a very powerful magic wielder, is still very much a teenager, and a troubled one at that. The good news is that he’s maturing and learning pretty quickly. The question is whether or not he will get where he needs to be before his enemy destroys him and everyone he loves. This is the question that makes waiting for the next book so agonizing. If you love well written YA, you will love this book. If you love monsters and horror, you will love this book. I’m guessing most readers in general will love this book. It’s that good.
