Review courtesy of All...

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy In THE HUNT, Andrew Fukuda created a terrifying yet irresistible world where humans are all but extinct. He introduced us to Gene, a teen forced to hide among the very vampires who would devour him if they discovered he was human. In THE PREY, Gene and the small group of humans he helped escape are on the run, following cryptic clues left by Gene's father in search of The Promised land, the last human outpost in the world. THE PREY picks up only seconds after THE HUNT ended with Gene and the escaped humans fleeing down the river with a pack of salivating vampires in pursuit. Right away the excitement level is sky high and it stays that way throughout the book. If possible, the world is even more frightening in THE PREY, and this time, it's not because of the vampires. The Mission, a hidden human village, will rile your blood with it's vile Elders and barbaric, misogynistic treatment of women. It's a whole different kind of scary and supremely tragic. Beyond The Mission, we learn a lot more about Gene's father, aka The Scientist. We also see the relationship dynamics shift between Gene, Sissy, and Epap in very unexpected but intriguing ways. My absolute favorite thing about THE PREY, however, is the way seemingly insignificant details from the first book were revealed to have monumental significance in the sequel. It showed just how much planning has gone into this series from its inception. There is nothing better for a reader than being able to fully trust an author, and after THE PREY, I have full confidence in Andrew Fukuda and his story. Sequels are tricky business. So often they fail to evoke the same feelings, recapture the same sense of wonder as the first book. With THE PREY, Andrew Fukuda had a huge task ahead of him with his follow up to the book I described as "violent, scary and compulsively readable with an ending that will leave readers salivating for the sequel." So what's the verdict? THE PREY is one of those truly rare, and elusive books that surpasses its predecessor. Everything that made the debut so amazing is amped up. The terror, the outrage, and the adventure. There are no details yet about the next book in The Hunt series, but I'm as ravenous as a starving dusker to get my hands on it. Sexual Content: N/A

Spoiler Alert: If you...

Spoiler Alert: If you have not read the first book The Hunt then don't read any further. Gene and the other hepers have escaped from the Dome leaving behind Ashley June. They travel down the river. Epap is not happy that Gene is with them. He is obviously jealous of him and the way Sissy keeps coming to his aid. As they travel down the river they discover a tablet hidden in a secret compartment under the boat. It tells them to stay on the river. The flip side tells them not to let Gene die. That is all it takes for Sissy to make it her mission. After several days on the river, and after plummeting over a waterfall they are discovered by a young girl and they are taken to a village called "The Mission". There is excitement at discovering more of their kind. But all is not what it seems. Is this a blessing or a curse and what is the "origin" they are supposed to have brought with them? The world building in this second book was just as interesting and descriptive as that in the first book. You see a dystopian society that has gone back to where women are nothing more than slaves. Sissy definitely doesn't agree with this. The micro-tension within this book is so strong I read it from beginning to end in one sitting. I honestly felt like I was at "The Mission" with all of them. I could feel the fear they felt. I kept sitting on the edge of my seat whenever the tension would increase. This author definitely knows how to write a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Unfortunately, the third book, The Trap, won't be out until September. The book was left in a way that the reader celebrates with the news learned, yet is left wondering if anyone will be alive to celebrate that knowledge. I absolutely loved this book. The first book was given to me to review. I bought the second book as an e-book. I can guarantee you that the second and third book will be purchased in paperback for my classroom shelves. It is an absolutely wonderful dystopian book.

Oh my goodness!!!! Sto...

Oh my goodness!!!! Stop what you're doing and start reading this book RIGHT NOW (unless you haven't read book one, in which case you need to do that first!) So often, the second book in a series is extremely disappointing for me - the author can't sustain my interest and the story drags. Not so with The Prey. Book two is awesome. Seriously... stop reading this review and get started on it; you can thank me later! Here's the first two opening lines just to tease you: We thought we were finally free of them but we were wrong. That very night, they come at us. The Prey continues the action, the intrigue, and even the romance started in book one. I KNOW that Hunger Games aficionados will enjoy this series. Trust me people... this is the next big hit. My gut's never wrong. Get it on your shelves a.s.a.p. Warning... definitely for mature readers.

Review courtesy of Dar...

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales Quick & Dirty: A different take on a paranormal story, that will promise to fill your dreams with horror and fear. Opening Sentence: We thought we were finally free of them but we were wrong. The Review: Andrew Fukuda's The Prey is the follow up to the amazing story, The Hunt. The best part about this series is that it is not your average vampire/paranormal story. Where normally, the vampires are the minority, hiding within the human population, this series is the opposite. In The Prey, the humans are the hunted, and Fukuda tells a wonderfully thrilling tale filled with fast-paced action. The Prey takes on a different direction, compared to The Hunt. Still on the run, Gene and others hide from the hunters fearing for their lives. Since they've escaped from the Hesper Institute a few days ago, they are constantly looking over their shoulders. Gene has not traveled far enough to see the last of them. They look for the Land of Milk and Honey, Fruit, and Sunshine. A place that The Scientist spoke of, one of safety and other humans. But for Gene, he is going further and further away from Ashley June. Gene struggles with accepting The Scientist and his father. Gene is broken, going against the grain of what he has lived through in the previous years. He is grouped together with hepers who don't exactly see eye-to-eye with him. He's smart, but is constantly filled with guilt. Not only with his father, but with many other things. It was nice to see how Gene transitions, slowly opening up and revealing inner thoughts and secrets that he never previously shared before. Gene was realistic, enough so that I believed him to be real. The Hepers, The Hunters, and the Duskers. Each set of characters have their own personalities, traits, similarities, and differences. Some are scarier than others, and Fukuda knows when to amp up the fear. Being hunted isn't something that is easy to describe, let alone strike some real emotion with, but Fukuda does it and does it well. It's exciting to go from scene to scene, slowly revealing bits and pieces of a big mystery. Who are they? What are they? Fukuda has answers and he slowly tells you. Fukuda is still as detail oriented as ever, with his fantastic world-building skills. He describes the human senses to the most miniscule detail. He adds more by describe emotions, like fear, and kick starts an adrenaline rush like no other. Fukuda brings the reader to places that would give you chills. The way he describes things and lays it out for you. It's really creepy, but in a good way. I love how the The Prey is still told through the eyes of Gene. He tells the story in a great way. Fukuda gave him a really good voice, and I appreciated it a lot. The Prey has a lot of excitement, and I think it was best told through a male voice. The pacing was great. I never had a hard time keeping up, nor did I feel like anything dragged on. For those of you who are tired of mushy romantic paranormal stories, The Prey is for you. I promise there will be death, action, and mystery. Notable Scene: I pause, her words-You don't know him the way we do-still ringing in my ears. The things I could tell her. That the man they know as the Scientist is the same man I have called Father; that I have lived with him, played with him, conversed with him, explored the metropolis with him, been told stories by him. I knew that when he slept, his hardened face fell away to expose the face of a little boy, and that he snored only softly, his huge barrel chest rising and falling, rising and falling, his hands lying lax at his sides. That my years with him were more than theirs, and deeper. That I have been loved by him with a father's love, and that bond is greater than any other. Instead, I rub the sticks harder against one another. "You have the weight of the world on your shoulders, Gene," she says quietly. I cross my legs under me, not speaking. "Secrets," she whispers, "they will eat you up inside." She gets up and joins the others. FTC Advisory: St. Martin's Griffin/Macmillan provided me with a copy of The Prey. No goody bags, sponsorships, "material connections," or bribes were exchanged for my review.

The Prey is an unexpec...

The Prey is an unexpected but fair followup to The Hunt, the first book in what will eventually be a trilogy. Though the basic elements of The Hunt and the main character remain, so much changes from the first book to this that by the middle of the story it begins to feel as though readers that were attracted to book one may not be the same readers that are drawn in by book two. Many of the elements of The Hunt that were so curious and original have been phased out. Now that Gene and his companions have escaped the Heper Institute, a fairly run-of-the-mill chase and mystery story has commenced. That doesn't mean that Fukuda is out of surprises -- there are many surprises in The Prey -- but the story does start to become strangely familiar and perhaps a little overdrawn by the middle. The book begins and ends with a lot of action and excitement. The bulk of the book, however, is taken up with thoughtful meanderings about the nature of humans and the creatures (which are eventually referred to as "duskers"). At times it's difficult to get through some chapters, and attempts at drawing excitement and intrigue back in fall a bit flat. An encounter with a dusker in the middle of the book completely fails to inspire fear. The writing also seemly glaringly sub-par compared to the first volume of this trilogy. I'm not sure if I was just paying more attention or if the editor really missed the mark on this one, but many passages sounded robotic and phrases and words were repeated alarmingly often and many times side-by-side. On the other hand, what began as just a pocket in a strange world in The Hunt has blossomed into a strange and mysterious universe that Fukuda builds up gleefully. We are given much more information about the world of the duskers and their history -- what originally appeared to be a standard science fiction/horror novel has moved securely into dystopian territory, which is a favorite genre of mine. Fukuda has merged the modern zombie mythos (the impenetrable numbers, the mindless pursuit) with the vampire genre to create hordes of intelligent, relentless monsters and a quest that slowly unveils itself even to the very last page. I'm looking forward to the third volume and hope that it reinstates a lot of the originality of the first book and reveals even more about the history of this gory, dystopian future.
