Y: The Last Man meets The Girl With All the Gifts in Gretchen Felker-Martin's Manhunt, an explosive post-apocalyptic novel that follows trans women and men on a grotesque journey of survival.

Beth and Fran spend their days traveling the ravaged New England coast, hunting feral men and harvesting their organs in a gruesome effort to ensure they'll never face the same fate.

Robbie lives by his gun and one hard-learned motto: other people aren't safe.

After a brutal accident entwines the three of them, this found family of survivors must navigate murderous TERFs, a sociopathic billionaire bunker brat, and awkward relationship dynamics―all while outrunning packs of feral men, and their own demons.

Manhunt is a timely, powerful response to every gender-based apocalypse story that failed to consider the existence of transgender and non-binary people, from a powerful new voice in horror.

Boston-area mefites: if you've been looking for a book that will make you glance nervously out the window at decreasing intervals as you read, this is it. Hoo boy.

Oh I really loved this book! I read an interview where Felker-Martin referred to specifically wanting to write a pulply genre novel, and that lens helped my delicate stomach deal with some of the details (oh ok, it's GENRE, it's fine! somehow that works for me).

this book seriously packs a wallop!!! very intense, gruesome, and thought provoking.

I did really enjoy the fate of JKR in here, just a brief note, but ***chef's kiss***
