Book Description:
          13-year-old Teodor was taken by the vicious Battle Borgs of Dome and now he must fight to survive.
          13-year-old Guy Erma has been offered a chance to fight for his place in the Dome Elite. Only who will be his opponent? Will he face a Battle Borg of Dome?
          Once they were heroes. These men died as heroes in battle. Now they have been reincarnated as the fearsome vanguard of the Dome Elite. They are the Battle Borgs of Dome
          Two boys as different as any two boys might be. They face the same enemy, the same danger, the same fear - dare they trust each other? 

          In the second book of the Guy Erma series, the events are just as fast paced, as racy as the first one, Kidnap.
          The kidnapped prince Teodor is being held inside the city itself, and his mother, the Regent Sayginn suffers between political drama, a mother’s need to protect her only remaining son and a manipulative emperor who wishes to marry her to produce his heir. Amidst all this chaos, she sees Karl Valvanchi as the sole ray of light that could save her son from captivity. In between this high profile drama, Guy Erma finds himself chasing after the ever eluding dream of being a part of the Dome Elite. The tense political situation apart, Guy knows he has to do anything that the Dome Boss says if he is to have a chance of fulfilling his dream.
          The summary does much justice to the book’s story as much as the book’s story adheres to it. The story continues right from where the first book left off and is every bit as intriguing. In depth looks into everyone’s perspective is an added bonus. Each character has been given enough space in the story. The language (thanks to the glossary) is easy enough to understand the storyline. The last chapter of the book is the most interesting, with the face off between Guy Erma and Prince Teodor fit to be a movie scene.
          Hunter, even if it doesn’t answer many questions about the series and poses much more questions that would hopefully be answered in the next part. An overall enjoyable experience, Hunter is one book that you will be able to appreciate after if you read the series in the proper sequence.
          Again, much like the previous time, this book also sends with a cliff hanger – albeit a bit hopeful one. I just had to mention this here.

          The author was born in Wallasey, England, in 1964, and moved to the South of France when she was eleven. She spent her teenage years living in the cosmopolitan city state of Monaco and became immersed in its many languages and cultures. An English girl in a French school, for three hours each week she would sit at the back of the class as her colleagues learnt English. To pass the time, she wrote stories. This led to a lifetime of writing novels, scripts, stories and articles. In her working life, Sally writes marketing communications and manages large international websites.

          In 2010, Sally joined the Hogs Back Writers, a club located on the outskirts of Guildford, and she set about turning an old manuscript into this novel: Guy Erma and the Son of Empire. Sally currently lives in Farnham, and she is married with two children.
