With the country in ruins, the new government declared it the Republic of the True America, imposed martial law, and separated all survivors into settlement camps. Now, 20 years later, three 16-year-olds uncover the dark truth: All this time they've been labeled Less Thans. Feared by society, they're being raised to be hunted for sport. Their only hope for survival is to escape with their friends... or risk certain death. Together they search for the fabled new territory in a heart-pounding flight to freedom, with sadistic hunters and the government's soldiers hot on their trail. Led by the unlikely Book and fearless Hope, these orphaned teens seek a better life, finding the best in themselves to fight the worst in their enemies.

Great new title in YA fiction
What made the experience of listening to The Prey the most enjoyable?
Alternating chapters between the male and female protagonist give you an incredibly well-defined sense of this futuristic dystopian world as well as opens up the story to be understood from various perspectives and sentiments.
What did you like best about this story?
Book's journey with his fellow LTs (a modern day Lost Boys-esque group) is filled with angst towards the unfair hand they were dealt, determination to find a better world for themselves, a goodly amount of fear and the kind of camaraderie that only exists when an unlikely group of fellows are thrown together by circumstances beyond their control.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes - I listened to it all in two sittings, and really only put it down because I had to get to a meeting. Definitely keeps you captivated chapter to chapter.
Any additional comments?
Fitting well into the current trend of futuristic dystopian YA novels, this book has all the teen drama of a Hunger Games or Divergent but is layered with deeper themes reminiscent of the tortures of the Holocaust and other callbacks to the darker places of humanity's history.
