A HUNTING WE WILL GO is a YA dark fantasy that combines the horror
and fantasy elements of DR JEKYLY & MR HYDE with the complicated family dynamics

NUR LAIL is not your typical 16-year-old. She goes on “hunts’ which is basically her
prowling the streets of Singapore late at night where she orchestrates accidents because she
enjoys hurting people. Only large strong people though. No animals. No kids. And no, she
doesn’t kill. Her best friend is a sentient tree which grants wishes and a fifteen-inch hunting

This might seem shocking, but her mum is a borderline psychopath who
psychologically and emotionally abuses her and her twin brother, SOPHIAN. Nur’s father
seems to have mentally checked out of this chaos ages ago and turns a blind eye to the abuse.
The hunts help keep Nur’s sanity until she realizes that Sophian,
whom she loves very much, has turned suicidal over a dark secret. To uncover this secret, she
asks for a wish from her sentient tree friend.

Nur awakens to find a monstrous girl’s face growing out of the back of her head. She
names the girl Lail and realizes that she can transform into Lail at will. With her newfound
gift, Nur goes on an increasingly violent journey to uncover the secret and save Sophian.
But her gift becomes a curse when it puts her in the crosshairs of the police who
mounts a nation-wide hunt for her. As time runs out and Sophian’s life hangs in the balance,
Nur stakes her own life in one last desperate bid to save her brother’s.
