RaveNPR... electric ... a fresh, stomach-turning take on gendered apocalypse ... To be upfront, Manhunt is not for everyone. It is gory, and brutal, and sickened me more than any other horror novel I\'ve read in recent memory. I am sure it will challenge many trans readers (like myself) as much as it will challenge cis readers. I mean all this as a sincere compliment to Felker-Martin\'s work ... Felker-Martin constructs the monsters of the novel beautifully ... paragon of body horror, and its numerous sex scenes are no exception. The prose is simultaneously erotic and gruesome. Felker-Martin writes into dissociation and the dysphoric insecurities of her characters ... While everything is heightened within the apocalyptic setting, enforcing gender kills people, That\'s true today; Manhunt just takes it to an extreme ... Even in places where it stretched the imagination, the book was grounded in the bodies of Felker-Martin\'s protagonists and in the logistics of their survival. Disgustingly rendered and brilliantly imagined, Manhunt was gripping as much as it was repulsive. It\'s rare to read a horror novel that truly tests my limits in a (mostly) pleasurable way — and Manhunt delivers. It\'s a challenge, and one I hope more readers take.
