I think I liked the Fear Saga than just plain old fear street the series just had to it for me I really loved all the twisted tales from this series so much fun I had an absolute blast reading all of these again in 2013. Popular Book, Heart Of The Hunter Fear Street Sagas, 9 Author R.L Stine This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Heart Of The Hunter Fear Street Sagas, 9 , Essay By R.L Stine Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You True love.We ve often heard that true love is liberating, but Stine has other ideas True love dooms a person to a lifetime of imprisonment.I hated Goode s from the beginning, and maybe I felt a bit of pity for them towards the end, but the end itself made me hate the last surviving member of their family.True love.Have to be on the lookout for it I guess, so I can push her into the Crimson falls, exactly what Jamie couldn t do P This was extremely slow at first The part of the story that took place with the Native Americans was super boring It wasn t until the love potion came into play that I started to get interested in what was happening I wanted to feel bad for Jamie, but he made some really stupid decisions Like, he s so obsessed with this girl in the tribe that he barely blinks an eye when he hears that he d have to go through with this sketchy ritual If that was me, I d want to know exactly what price I d have to pay and all the specifics of this deal I was making But no, Jamie just goes ahead with it and then gets all angry when it turns out that he got what he ultimately wanted but also ended up getting screwed over in another way.The ending totally made up for the things I didn t like about this book It turned out to be much darker than I was expecting it to be view spoiler For all the crap I talked about Jamie, the fact that he was doomed to forever be a wolf trapped in a barred cage made me upset His fate was just so depressing That Amanda chick was crazy as hell Her final speech where she said that didn t want him to end up this way, but she was happy that they d now be together forever was creepy beyond belief hide spoiler Meh The Oregon Trail with werewolves Once again, bizarre pacing that had what could have been a cool plot but was so bogged down with red herrings and false clues that it was too watered down A romance plot that never felt genuine paired with this werewolf stuffit was a pile of garbage. I love reading about the feud between the Fears and Goodes I knew this wasn t going to end well for Jamie because he was hell bent on exacting revenge upon his enemies and that never works out in the end Poor Jamie. eh I was a huge R.L Stine fan in my early teens I loved all the fear street books They are what got me into reading again Jaime Fier has lycanthropy Press ENTER to size up the situation.If The Werewolf of Fever Swamp was my gateway drug to the concept of werewolves, this book cemented the interest I remember this book in the school library shoved in the little rack of Goosebumps and Fear Street books that contained at least 50 of its kin and how the cover of the book enticed me I read this book, finished it, gazed upwards into the sky, clenched a fist, and said thoughtfully to myself werewolves are awesome Because of this, I have a really silly soft spot for this book, just a tiny pulpy horror novel that s one of hundreds of Fear Street novels that exist, and it s one of those rare books where I dare not read again because I know it won t be like when I first read it So why give it four stars if you don t actually know how good it isYes, it s been a long time since I read this book I was eleven when I read this, over a decade ago , but I still remember most of the plot points so vividly And that s the best word to describe this book vivid This is no grade school Goosebumps novel the werewolf transformation scenes complete with bones cracking, muscles tearing, and hair ripping out all that fun stuff and the werewolf attack scenes that follow with throats torn out and luckless humans left to bleed to death are gruesome, bloody, horrific, and man I loved it Heart of the Hunter takes place in 1792, as settlers hitch up their wagons and leave Virginia to flee starvation and find sunnier pastures out west Jaime Fier, our main protagonist wolf to be, is one of these settlers, and boy does life throw some really rotten curveballs at him Most of the other settlers on the trail mistrust him and his family on account of a curse apparently the Fier family is a generational family that appears in quite a few Fear Street novels this fact was unknown to me when I first read this so I just assumed the settlers were being assholes and refuse to help them This one girl from the Goodes family keeps creepily telling him how she s going to marry him despite him being way interested in her sister, who is pretty much the human version of a ragdoll in terms of health and personality Basically the goings are pretty rough for these poor varmints And soon, mishap after mishap later, the Fier wagon breaks, the other wagons forge on ahead without him, and Jaime Fier and his father are left stranded in the wilderness where they will most assuredly die at the hands of a cruel world that they do not fully understand So much for Manifest Destiny.One savage wolf attack later, Jaime is now orphaned and at the mercy of the wilderness Thankfully, he s then taken under the wing of some Native Americans and he ends up living with them for some time Guess they re just alright with the whole stealing their land thing that s been going on recently In time, he learns the ways of the tribe and he falls in love with Whispering Wood, the lovely girl on the front cover who, as you might guess, will probably not make it through this book unscathed or with a throat intact Jaime Neir wants to win her affections, but he s just not getting through to her despite his white man charms So he turns to his local medicine woman for advice The Withering Woman answers his problems by brewing him a potion that will help him win the heart of the woman he loves.However, this love potion comes with a side effect In addition to love, this potion also turns him into a wolf every night of the full moon where he is doomed to roam the earth and tear innocent people s throats out and, if his true love sees him in wolf form, he will be trapped in wolf form forever.Iguess this was a fair trade off And so begins the killing, and what happens next is Jaime s downward spiral from someone with really bad luck into something that is slowly turning into a wolf even in human form He begins to rationalize the killing, to accept it as a part of who he is He becomes both the main protagonist and the villain of the story, although another villain shows up later And he ends up catching up with the Goodes especially the two sisters and the other settlers and brings his curse with him.The characters felt a level above the typical R L Stine fare If you ve read a Goosebumps or a Fear Street novel before, you will know that the characters can be a little flat, with most of their personality coming from their physical descriptions Literally the only Goosebumps character I can pin a name to is Slappy the sentient ventriloquist dummy And I won t lie there are some flat characters in this book, with Whispering Wood in particular feeling like a non character However, the love crazy Goode sister who goes to some really disturbing lengths to win Jaime s heart and Jaime possess shades of grey I don t often see in the Fear Street novels and I commend them for it These characters stuck out as characters It only took about several hundred books for R L Stine or one of his many ghostwriters to get this far Looking back, there are some problems with this book I will address the white elephant in the room and say that there is a degree of casual racism when dealing with the Native Americans in this book in that they feel like the cartoon version of Native American rather than an actual tribe that would exist Typical of Fear Street novels, explanation as to why a love potion can also cause lycanthropy is never given However, I feel that the twist ending typical of R L Stine, there is a stinger that basically makes everything worse and the manifestation of the love triangle revenge plot that almost matches the werewolf maulings in savagery in this historical werewolf mini novel totally made up for it Not an amazing book by any means, but its importance on my developing interests and the fun I had reading it makes it stand out nonetheless Basically, if you re on the market for a quick little story on werewolves in a historical era and don t mind some minor problems in terms of racial sensitivity, you won t be disappointed with this.
