Hunting November Cover


Surviving a few weeks at the world’s most lethal boarding school was one thing. But now comes the real test: Can November Adley find her missing father before her enemies find her? Subterfuge is the name of the game in this thrilling sequel to Killing November, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch.

After surviving a crash course in espionage at the mysterious Academy Absconditi, November has only one purpose: finding her missing father. Along with fellow student (and heartthrob) Ash, November follows the clues that her father left, embarking on the deadliest treasure hunt of her life. The first clue is in her hometown, where old friends beckon and unexpected enemies lurk around every corner. The second clue is in Europe, where revelations about her family’s history will plunge her into an international web of deception, lies, and intrigue. The third clue is deep in enemy territory, surrounded by the most skilled assassins and master strategists, and where everyone wants her and her father dead. Can one girl with limited training infiltrate a centuries-old organization that is powerful enough to topple empires? November only knows that she’ll do whatever it takes to save her father . . . or die trying.

It’s a school completely off the grid, hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps. There’s no electricity, no internet, and an eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from Knife-Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analysis. And all of the students are children of the world’s most elite strategists—training to become assassins, counselors, spies, and master impersonators. Into this world walks November Adley, who quickly discovers that friends are few in a school where personal revelations are discouraged and competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits into the school’s bizarre strategy games before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.


Praise for Killing November:


“Adriana Mather deftly combines cinematic action, relatable characters, and wicked twists in this riveting boarding school thriller.” — Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us is Lying


“Mather has built a dark, intriguing universe. Between the boarding-school setting, the lessons in espionage, and the murder mystery, there’s plenty to grab readers.” —Booklist


“Subterfuge is the name of the game at an elite and secretive prep school. Revelations are well-paced . . . . Anything is possible in this world of cloaks and daggers. A strong beginning that will leave readers hungry for more.” —Kirkus





Just a quick review since I’m so bad with reviewing sequels.  Hunting November was just as much fun to read as Killing November.  The book picks up after the end of book one.  November and Ash are planning to leave the academy and find her father.  They go back to her home to search for clues.  November’s heart gets in the way and she messes up.  They’re found and have to find a way to escape.


After that, they fly to Europe and follow clues to different places and to people.  They find out that there is a man, Jag, that must be stopped.  He doesn’t run things the same as others.  He’s more of a dictator that people fear.  He uses their fear and tries to disguise things as justice.  November knows her dad is running out of time and she’s still learning about how Strategia work.  Things come out from her past that shock her, but she has Ash by her side the whole way through.


I was a bit worried about the book not being at the academy, but there are definitely appearances from other students that made it work for me.  I loved the academy setting more, but I really did enjoy the trip through different parts of Europe.


I gave this book 4 stars.  Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for my review copy.


Warnings for the same type of things that book one had.  There’s a lot of fighting, blood, and death.
