Book Summary

With death only a heartbeat away, Gene and the remaining humans must find a way to survive long enough to escape the hungry predators chasing them through the night.  But they're not the only things following Gene.  He's haunted by Ashley June who he left behind, and his burgeoning feelings for Sissy, the human girl at his side.

Their escape takes them to a refuge of humans living high in the mountains.  Gene and his friends think they're finally safe, but not everything here is as it seems.  And before long, Gene must ask himself if the new world they've entered is just as evil as the one they left behind.  As their enemies close in on them and push Gene and Sissy closer, one thing becomes painfully clear: all they have is each other…if they can stay alive.

Chilling, inventive, and electrifying, The Prey is the second book in Andrew Fukuda's The Hunt series.

Media Reviews

"A lengthy interlude in creepsterville, with the promise of a return to gory thrills. Ages 14-16." - Kirkus

"The story is bona fide creepy, and as it builds to its cliffhanger ending (which delivers quite a good twist), readers will be torn between hoping Gene can maintain the ruse and that he will take on the bloodsuckers already. As revolutions go, this one is well worth keeping on your radar." – Booklist

"In this terrifying and inventive adventure, Fukuda turns the vampire novel inside out…With an exciting premise fueled by an underlying paranoia, fear of discovery, and social claustrophobia, this thriller lives up to its potential while laying groundwork for future books." – Publishers Weekly

"With razor-sharp prose, a genius plot, and a searing pace that will have you ripping through the pages, Fukuda creates a dark and savage post-apocalyptic world where humans are nearly extinct and love manages to bloom despite all the odds stacked against it. An exceptional novel—I can't wait for the sequel!" - Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Immortals Series

"One of the most brilliant, original books I've read in a very long time. This is the kind of book you'll want to stay up with all night to finish!" - Richelle Meade, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series

"A book that grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. The Hunt is both terrifying and sublime, with every page evoking that fragile, yet unyielding thing we call humanity." - Andrea Cremer, New York Times bestselling author of the Nightshade Trilogy

"Chilling, inventive, and utterly unputdownable. Readers, proceed…if you dare. This book will bleed into your nightmares." - Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of Hush, Hush
