Spoiler Alert: If you ha

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!!!! Stop w

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 All Th

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

The Prey is an unexpected

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.

Continues where The Hunt

Continues where The Hunt left off. Gene and the remaining humans who escaped the vampires must find a way to survive. They stumble across a group of humans at a place called the Mission, but something is off. There are no boys, and most of the girls have small feet; some of them are even pregnant. Gene accepts their hospitality when he finds out his father stayed there for a while; supposedly his father entrusted something called the Origin, a cure for vampirism, to Gene, and the Mission elders have been waiting for Gene's arrival. Gene and Sissy slowly uncover sinister truths about the Mission as well as a possible clue to the Origin.
