The Last Hunter - Pursuit (Book 2 of the Antarktos Saga)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
I was thirteen years old when I was kidnapped. They took me from my family, from my friends--from everything I knew, and stole my innocence. They brought me to a world beneath the surface of Antarctica, where I was broken and trained by a hunter named Ninnis. He served the ancient Nephilim: half-human, half-demon monsters. My personality was buried in my subconscious and replaced by that of Ull, a hunter and killer. For a time, I too served the Nephilim. As the first and only human born on Antarctica, they believed that I could contain the spirit of their fallen king, Nephil, and lead them to conquer humanity.
But I was stronger than they knew and escaped deep into the underworld, where I have been hiding for the past two years. I live in a cavern, which is somehow lush with green vegetation, eking out a living and cowering from the confrontation that I know awaits me. But the nightmare has found me. I can smell them. The hunters. They have discovered my hideout.
The pursuit of Solomon Ull Vincent--the last hunter--has begun. And if they catch me, this is where my story will end.

Evil spirit, either. “It wasn’t me who beat you.” “But it is,” he says. “Because I cannot kill you now. I can’t even bring you back alive.” Despite the question being absurd, I ask, “Why not?” “Because you have shown me a different path.” Small bones drop through the giant ribcage as a thunderous boom sounds from just outside our shelter. Xin grunts and sits up. “You shouldn’t move,” I say. He grunts a wet laugh. “If we are to survive the next few minutes, we will both need to move. And.
Plan. One by one, I’ll be forced to kill my mother, my father, and who knows who else from my past until I no longer care. I will kill them. I will eventually eat them to survive. And I… Will… Break. I pull back from the body of this mother-shaped feeder. With my face turned to the ceiling, I fill my lungs and scream, “NINNIS!” As my thunderous voice echoes in the pit, something else happens. The solid stone floor beneath my feet—it shakes. 15 My fall is broken by my mother’s—the.
Girl opens her jacket, revealing a belt and two crisscrossing straps over her chest, which are absolutely laden with throwing blades. She lets the first one fly just as the man fires an arrow. As the wind kicks up around me I realize that Epsilon is code for some kind of practiced attack. The arrows and knives will come like hail from a storm and I’m not sure I can deflect them all without also compromising my body. Either way, these two have the upper hand. I need Ull, but there is no time to.
But then… Nephil. He took control. Nearly killed Xin. But together, in my mind, we locked Nephil away, along with my hunter personality.” “You left him to die, I hope,” he says. “No,” I say. “That is what a hunter would do. Not me. I saved him. And when Behemoth came, he saved me, and hid me from the other hunters.” Whipsnap slowly lowers to the floor. “You faced Behemoth, and survived?” “Thanks to Xin, yes.” “And you spared his life?” “That’s what I said.” He sits on the edge of a cot,.
To her. Her frown deepens, but I’m not sure if it’s from guilt or shame at needing to be saved. I face Ninnis. He’s just ten feet away. “I saved both of you.” He stops just out of Whipsnap’s reach. “Your life is a series of mistakes, Solomon.” When he says my name again, I realize I have an opening to put a wedge between these two. “You’ve told her then? That you failed to break me? And that your failure resulted in Ull’s death?” I see surprise register on Kainda’s face. I turn to her. “I.
