Blurb (from Goodreads):
This second book in the Prey trilogy is a harrowing story of survival as Book and Hope travel back to the eerie Camp Liberty, where Book was once raised to be hunted for sport, to save those left behind. With new twists, new turns, and a new love triangle, The Capture is a gripping adventure for fans of The Maze Runner.
Every night it was the same: dreaming of those Less Thans shackled in the bunker beneath the tennis court. I couldn’t let it go. As bad as the memory was, my dreams only made it worse....
It was why we had to get back to Camp Liberty. Why we had to free those Less Thans.
Book, Hope, and Cat cannot live with themselves—they cannot settle into a new free life knowing the rest of their fellow Less Thans and Sisters are still imprisoned. Now the teens must retrace their steps to save the others, destroy the compound, and thwart the evil plans of the Republic.
With new enemies lurking—deranged Crazies and ominous Skull People among them—the group must put their fate in the hands of unexpected allies, including the woman with the long black hair and Miranda, the daughter of the Skull People’s Chief Justice, who is drawn to Book. Both may come to their aid, but at what cost? As the teens race toward Camp Liberty, they must ask themselves what they’re willing to do to free their friends, for the path back is filled with even more danger as motives are questioned and relationships tested.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an interesting second instalment, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book.
Book continued to fight for those still captured in this book, and went above and beyond, even when it put his own life in danger.
The storyline in this was about Book, Hope and the others going back to try and rescue the Less Thans and Sisters still held at the two camps, with some problems along the way. And yes, this included a ‘capture’, and another escape. I did find the pace to be a bit slow in this one though.
The ending to this was good, but it will be interesting to see where the story goes next.
