READ PDF ë The Prey ⚪ For Gene and the remaining humans or hepers death is just a heartbeat away On the run and hunted by society, they must find a way to survive in The Vast and avoid the hungry predators tracking them in the dark But they re not the only things following Gene He s haunted by the girl he left behind and his burgeoning feelings for Sissy, the human girl at his sideWhen they discover a refuge of exiled humans living high in the mountains, Gene and his friends think they re finally safe Led by a group of intensely secretive elders, the civilisation begins to raise questions than answers A strict code of behaviour is the rule, harsh punishments are meted out, young men are nowhere to be found and Gene begins to wonder if the world they ve entered is just as evil as the one they left behind As life at the refuge grows perilous, he and Sissy only grow closer In an increasingly violent world, all they have is each other if they can only stay alive This book is a sequel to The Hunt, which I read a few months ago The Prey definitely improved on its predecessor in fact, it is one of the best books I have read so far this year The previous book introduced a dark, bloody, dystopian world, where humans are seemingly all but extinct, subsumed by a new breed a superstrong, superfast cannibalistic people who will literally tear you limb from limb, eating your flesh and drinking your blood The hero, Gene, survives by the use of a brazenly cl This book is a sequel to The Hunt, which I read a few months ago The Prey definitely improved on its predecessor in fact, it is one of the best books I have read so far this year The previous book introduced a dark, bloody, dystopian world, where humans are seemingly all but extinct, subsumed by a new breed a superstrong, superfast cannibalistic people who will literally tear you limb from limb, eating your flesh and drinking your blood The hero, Gene, survives by the use of a brazenly clever Purloined Human or Heper, what humans are called in this book technique he hides in the midst of the monsters, pretending to be one of them helped along by excessive showering, use of deodorant, and razors, to hide the body hair the monsters apparently do not grow He has thought like one of them, as a matter of survival, for so long that it is very hard for him to remember that he is, in fact, human, which was one of the first book s major plot points This book ups the stakes exponentially, and answers a great many questions The duskers, as we learn they are called, are actually genetically engineered supersoldiers gone wrong They were bred to fight humanity s wars centuries ago and ended up turning on their creators There is supposedly a cure for this called the Origin, which the group from the first book spends a great deal of time searching for and finds in the Very Last Sentence of this book seriously, I ve never seen cliffhangers like Andrew Fukuda writes Gene and his pals, still being pursued by the duskers, stumble upon a hidden city of humans that is not quite right, to say the least Either they re watching the desert city where the duskers, still five million strong, are confined, or they re humanity s last stand, products of a devil s bargain with the duskers That point is not resolved I trust it will be addressed in the last book of the trilogy The hallmarks of the first book remain the almost unbearable tension and the gripping action scenes that all but explode off the page If this story ever makes it to the movie screen, it would take a trilogy of films, a la The Hunger Games, to do it justice Edited to add 9 11 13 After thinking about it, I changed my rating to five stars It was silly to give the first book in the series five and this one only four the original rating I want to be stingy with five star reviews, but this book definitely deserves it I admit part of the reason why I liked The Hunt so much was because it was bizarre different I know, I m weird like that The hepers were the minority living among the duskers, and the bizarreness like the sticking their elbows into each others armpits or the wrist scratching made it unique, and I m a bit disappointed there wasn t any weirdness in this book.Taking those things out of the book made The Prey much a like any other dystopian one that follows the general storyline of a wor I admit part

their elbows into each others armpits or the wrist scratching made it unique, and I m a bit disappointed there wasn t any weirdness in this book.Taking those things out of the book made The Prey much a like any other dystopian one that follows the general storyline of a world that exists a certain way, and the inhabitants learned that they have been lied to al their lives However, much of the world building took place in the first book, so this one was able to take off from the start It was full of action and excitement, and even though it was predictable, it wasthan enough to suck me in particularly with the puzzles that the Scientist left behind.I was left with questions however, mostly from something that was explained in the first book view spoiler Sissy and her family were raised in the Dome and were said to be the last hepers in the world However, it was also rud that there was a heper farm underneath the Palace, although this was never proven Does that farm provide for the heper in the Dome because Sissy had said they had parents but they left one day and never came back , or are there other Domes, raising the future population for future hunts Since the 18th Ruler had declared hepers extinct, but the last hunt was 10 years ago involving hepers the Palace admitted they had secretly habored, it s hard to believe there areDomes out there, which makes me wonder why there was the Dome separate from the farm in the first place hide spoiler I guess either way, it may be explained in the next book as they reach their destination.Overall, I enjoyed this book very much, though for different reasons than the rest I m looking forward to see how Fukuda plans to explain what s really going on with the heper population Read along with BBP, March 2013.I m afraid a lot of people will read and think it is just too weird, resulting in them not giving this one a chance This Second book was muchstory oriented, a lot of the oddities sort of take a back seat they are still there, but maybe just not as much of a major player I very much so enjoyed this one There were a few predictable moments, but for the most part I was constantly being suprised This was fast paced and action packed, a real adventure Read along with BBP, March 2013.I m afraid a lot of people will read and think it is just too weird, resulting in them not giving this one a chance This

of stressed me out I was afraid they were going to be on the run for the whole book Serious heart palpatations going on So, even though the village wasn t exactly a perfect stop, I was glad for just that a stop I sort of figured out about it being a baby producing farm right off, since there was pretty much no young guys and a ton of pregnant girls running around The whole small feet thing was so strange, but I guess conformity happens in lots of ways I figured Ashley June would either die or get turned, but that ending with herHmmmmmm I am curious, because she did show some humanity toward Gene I wonder how that will play out Are we going to have to deal with a love triangle between Gene, Ashley June and Sissy Will Ashley June get cured I am a little worried about Gene s Father, the scientist Is he going to live up to all his promises Is he even going to be alive at all He better be What exactly is it about Gene and Sissy that is the cure The new addition of Clair makes me have another hmmmmm moment Is she to be trusted As you see, I have lots of unanswered questions and I m an super excited to see where the next book will take us AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH 4 stars Fukuda strikes again Sidenote These names drove me crazy and I know I m not alone on this , so for them to wind up being such a critical part of the story is Crazy Fukuda might just be an evil genius UmI m want to see ashley June get rescued How can he fall for another girl when Ashley June risked her life for him in a huge way, and is left rotting in a hole Idk, I want to read this sequel, but the first book was quit a bit laborious in the middle Ithan likely will read it, but I will be highly upset of he just let s Ashley June die or something.
