A hot debut trilogy and a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls’ camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the "good of the Republic," by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.
The Prey is such a wonderful example of a dystopian future as dictated if Hitler were still alive. A tall, blonde, ex-model decides to take over the United States and put Less Thans--anyone with different skin color, deformities, or radiation marks--in a camp where they become prey. I won't give any plots away by stating more than that. However, there are so many plot twists that the reader will be reeling by the end of the book! The characters are tragic, brave, selfless and selfish. Author Tom Isbell does an excellent job imagining how people will act when faced with the downfall of our government. And the cliffhanger at the end....you know I love a good cliffhanger! The Prey is five star and I don't doubt that Isbell's follow-up will be as exciting, fast-paced, and tense as is first book.
