The Ninth Scripture: The Hunt is a work of fiction in the science fiction and fantasy sub-genres, and was penned by author D. Wolfsbane. The first in a trilogy of stories, the work is aimed at young adult audiences and upwards, and presents a fast-paced adventure in a far-flung fantasy land called Cuest. Here, endless war sees that men do not live long, and any woman’s sole purpose has become to breed more soldiers. But protagonist Zecaar is spared from this fate by her predisposition for psychic powers. Sent to Talon Academy, this young woman sees deeper into the plight of those around her, calling into question her every action, and the choices she must make to change the future.
Author D. Wolfsbane has crafted a superbly engaging tale that fans of YA fantasy and science fiction will be sure to fall for in its every vibrant detail. Zecaar is a uniquely formed character with deep conflict in her own soul, and this attention to detail by the author makes her both interesting and endearing to follow as the novel progresses. I was also highly impressed by the world-building of the work, which introduces us to many new customs and cruel, gritty realities in the war-torn world of Cuest. The prose has atmospheric details and sharp action scenes, delivering excellent contrast and rise and fall for its plot. Overall, I would highly recommend The Ninth Scripture: The Hunt as the opening to a promising and enthralling series, and an exciting portrayal of a gifted and complex teen pushed to her limits.
