Noted by Kirkus Reviews as an "Author to Watch." Named to Kirkus' Best Books of the Year for two years in a row—in 2012 for Lay Saints, and in 2013 for The High Hunt.
The High Hunt, Book 1 in The Orion Guild series by award-winning SF author Adam Connell. The High Hunt follows Grand Marksman Lansing in a too-civilized future where a guild of professional hunters solve animal-related problems most societies—intergalactic and planetary—are incapable of handling on their own.
The guild’s motto: We Limit Ourselves To Improve The Sport, We Gain Honor Through Effort.
"Successful simply as an action novel, The High Hunt also does what some of the best science fiction has always done: it illuminates important truths about humanity."
