Today I finished reading The Capture which is the second book to Tom Isbell’s, The Prey.
In this next installment Book, Hope and others teens who escaped their prison camps head back from their safe haven in the New Territory in order to save the friends they left behind. In my last review of this series I said The Prey had an adolescent feel to it and I’m not surprised that this book had the same feel to it. I also said that I was happy to learn that the main characters were people of color and to honest I’m started to doubt that. But anyway, I can relate to the character of Book; he loves to read (obviously), he’s shy and he’s not really a natural-born leader but people listen to him when it matters. Honestly, there were times I wanted Book to tell off the character Dozer in the book but that didn’t happen. What also got on my nerves was his relationship with Hope. They’re not really boyfriend and girlfriend considering the dire situation of it all but they have this on again off again thing going on. First Hope wants to ignore Book, then she wants to hold his hand, then she hates him, then she loves him. It was annoying! But they’re teenagers so……whatever. But I enjoyed the book just like the last one; it had humor, action and emotion.
Overall, I give it a 3/5.
Until next time!
