The Trap by Andrew Fukuda

Pages: 309
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Source: I purchased

From Goodreads:
After barely escaping the Mission alive, Gene and Sissy face an impossible task: staying alive long enough to stop an entire world bent on their destruction. Bound on a train heading into the unknown with the surviving Mission girls, Gene, Sissy, David, and Epap must stick together and use everything they have to protect each other and their only hope: the cure that will turn the blood-thirsty creatures around them into humans again. Now that they know how to reverse the virus, Gene and Sissy have one final chance to save those they love and create a better life for themselves. But as they struggle to get there, Gene's mission sets him on a crash course with Ashley June, his first love . . . and his deadliest enemy 

My thoughts:
I read this third and final book in the Hunt Trilogy in a little over two hours.  It was that good.  Book two leaves us wondering where Gene, Sissy and the others are headed.  Are they headed to further danger or salvation?  The final book doesn't disappoint.  They find other hepers like themselves.  But, they find that not everything or everyone is who they say they are.  The adventure keeps you on the edge of your seat.  One minute you think everyone will survive, then there is a major change.  Gene and Sissy face one life threatening event after another.  Each time the reader is carried to the top and made to wonder how they can survive.  You see the answer then boom, you are right back wondering if they will get out of the next situation.  The discovery that Gene and Sissy make at the end of the book and the way the author ends it was such a wonderful twist.  The reasons for the situation they find themselves in show how society can change and throw life into cataclysmic change when science goes wrong.  This is a definite must read.  The best twist on vampires I have ever read.  For those who love vampire stories, this will not disappoint. If I could give it more than five stars I most definitely would.
