Storm is born into a world of secrets - an island no one visits, names no one will say, and deaths that no one will talk about. The answers are locked in his species' troubled past, guarded by the fierce creasia cats. But when Storm's friends are threatened, he decides that he must act, pitting himself against the creasia to show that they can be resisted and outwitted. To prove his point, he must stay one step ahead of clever hunters, who have more to lose than Storm imagines.
Hunters Unlucky is an animal story for anyone who loved Richard Adams's Watership Down, Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book, and Jack London's Call of the Wild.

Sometimes, they eat each other.

Enjoyed so much, had to listen to twice
The quality of this audiobook is very high, the story and narration are both excellent. I think this qualify as high fantasy as all of the characters are sentient animals, and there are elements of magic. There are several different and unique species, and this story is about the fall out of a war between two of them, with some interactions with the other five species. The story is complete as is, but I hope there will be more stories written in this world with these characters.
Would involve too many spoilers, as all my favourite moments were either big reveals, or when characters had reason to change their opinions of others.
All the characters have different voices, even accents. Even if the names were not mentioned you would have known who was talking.
Would have listened in one sitting if I could, but it took several due to the length.
I actually started listening to this story on the author's podcast and was unwilling to wait months for the conclusion so I joined audible for this book. It did start out a little slow, but once it got going, I got dragged into the story and had to know what happened. I found it strange that the villain of the first part of the story actually became my favourite character by the end.

Fantastic story! I loved it!
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone. It is a rich tale of mythical creatures with an epic "Cinderella story" main character. If you like rooting for the underdog, then you will LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
As I said above, it brought to my mind the situation of rags to riches type story of Cinderella. Although the actual stories are very different, the situation of the main character is what makes me think about the similarities.
Mr. Outfield did a fantastic characterization of the different voices and accents. They stayed true to themselves throughout the entire 24+ hours of audio. It was a monumental feat, and he did it exceedingly well.
You won't go wrong with this book. It is a fantastic story. The characters are very original and unique. Ms. Hilton is a master story teller.
