"For Gene and the remaining humans, 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 side. When 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 civilization begins to raise more questions than answers. A strict code of behavior is the rule, harsh punishments are meted out, young men are no where 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 more perilous, he and Sissy only grow closer. In an increasingly violent world, all they have is each other ... if they can stay alive"--Provided by publisher.

This is the second book in this series and I found it very good. Gene, Sissy and the boys are trying to find the land of sunshine that his father left hints about. But when they come across what they thought was it, they found a lot of odd things going on. But now they are on a train to where they don't know what to expect and are still trying to save the population. Looking forward to the last book in this series.

This book made me hope then pulled the wool over my eyes. Oh my word. When they say it's a good series to read after the Hunger Games, they're not kidding. The horror and despair in this story either matches or surpasses that of Katniss'. Gene knows that the Scientist is his father, and he is determined to find him. But the hunters are getting smarter, and their attacks are getting crueler and harder to evade. Somehow, the gang follows hidden clues, looking for the Land of Milk and Honey, Fruit and Sunshine. But when they think they find it, not everything is as it seems. In fact, the village seems positively sinister, hiding insidious secrets under fake smiles and morning songs. Who can be trusted, and what must the gang decide for their future?

Book 2 of 3 (preceded by The Hunt and followed by the Trap). This was a great continuation of the first book. It was exciting and suspenceful. Some concepts were still not answered and I am hoping that will be done in the next book - I can't wait.

A really great book! full of adventure, suspense and romance, "The Prey" is a fantastic sequel to "the Hunt". with a fresh take on the vampires, it's a much better way to fall in love with vampires! Plus, fans of the Hunger Games, The Immortal Rules, and The Chronicles of Nick series' will love this series!!
