    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“Wouldn’t you rather have us fighting with you than not fighting at all?”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 tr [...]


    2. I should have written this review earlier. It’s been about a week since I finished The Capture but I’ve already forgotten the majority of it. I cannot even remember how it ended! But anyway, The Prey was hardly my favourite book of the year so my expectations for the sequel were cautiously optimistic at most… and somehow it still managed to disappoint me. For one, I just have to point out how useless this sequel was. I don’t know if I could ever possibly stress how literally pointless th [...]


    3. The Capture is the exciting sequel to The Prey, which I also really enjoyed.Just so you know what this dystopian world is about, I've copied a bit of my review of The Prey:This is a book about children after a radiation disaster. There are very few adults, at least that we know of. All the children are in camps for orphans. Some camps are nicer than others. Some camps aren't what they seem to be.Hope and Faith are twins and they've been running and hiding for years with their father to keep away [...]


    4. “Avid dystopian fans will anxiously await the next installment. " Truer words have never been written. I have been waiting for the next chapter of Tom Isbell's brilliant Prey series since I finished reading the first book in the series 'The Prey.' I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an “uncorrected proof” copy of the book. I purchased my official copy this morning, and I'm already reading through it again. It’s that good. Boy does Mr. Isbell deliver in this book. The Capture is a f [...]


    5. Read my Review HereI won this book on a giveaway thinking that the first book would be incredibly fun and thrilling. Unfortunately, the choppy sentences and terrible character descriptions are carried over into this book as well. Honestly, I wasn't too surprised with the overall content of this book. The plot twists were predictable as were the character's reactions. There's not much more to say, I covered most of it in the first book's review.



    6. I'm actually glad I decided to jump into the next book after that awful first book. Now, this wasn't my favorite book--not even close--but it was much better than The Prey.I LOVED the part on page 404 (view spoiler)[when Chancellor Maddox had that talk with Hope about boys and sliced her cheeks. My goodness, that was beautiful, though a really bad message for girls in this century. (hide spoiler)] And I have also discovered that I love Cat. I felt really bad for him (view spoiler)[when he lost h [...]


    7. There is always compromise from the reader to buy into the author's created world. That did not happen with this book. The only reason I finished it was because my neighbor was playing loud music and I couldn't sleep. I did like Argos.


    8. Even worse than the first book, the writing is terrible and the female protagonist infuriating badly written.


    9. What a steaming pile of s#!t.Isbell should have just titled this what it is'The Divergent Maze Runners't one single original idea in there anywhere. While 'The Prey' was (at least) tolerable fluff, 'The Captive' is just a successive series of cliches stitched together likea successive series of cliches. "There's a storm coming"? Really?? How does Book #3 begin"It was a dark and stormy night"?Unfortunately, for me, I'm a completist. Book #3, here I come. ugh.


    10. This book was just as good as the first one. They find out so many new things that define their mission, who they want to be, and how they want to change the world their living in. The only thing that I think would have made the book better was seeing more of the Skull Head way of life and where the relationship with Miranda would have went if it hadn't been so abruptly interrupted. But all of that last sentence is definitely personal preference.


    11. After Book, Cat, and Hope lead the LT's and the Sisters to The New Territory, Book decides to return to free the rest of the LT's. With help from Cat, Hope, and a few others they make their way back to Camp Liberty but this time they face Crazies, Brown Shirts, and a few other surprises along the way.This book introduces a brand new love triangle, along with new twists and betrayals. This book is just as action-packed as the Prey but unfortunately, Hope was also just as annoying!


    12. At first I was hesitant to read this trilogy, but after reading The Prey and The Capture I can fully admit I'm in love with these books so far. I relate to the character book more then I expected too.


    13. couldn't finish. the writing style was killing me! Story was just so un realistic and boring. i agree with all the other comments about characters and the background story. i really wanted to like this book.






    14. 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 [...]


    15. Mr. Isbell creates a wonderful world and amazing characters with his first book, "The Prey". Book two, "The Capture" picks up right where the first one left off, and that's good, right? But what I wasn't prepared for, was the depth at which each of these characters were created. They were three dimensional. Funny, caring, sensitive and made mistakes, like the rest of us. Not only are the main characters well flushed out, so are their sidekicks. Each member of the group has their own personality [...]


    16. This book had to have been hard to write in order to be as good as the first book in the series "The Prey", but somehow Tom Isbell did it. Tom Isbell created a just as good sequel, maybe even better than the first book in the series. "The Capture" was more action-packed than the first book, and was full of several surprises I never saw coming. When Book went back for Cat and found him with only one arm, I was in total shock. Isbell has very powerful writing that kept me wanting to read more and [...]


    17. This book was better than the first in my opinion due to its better flow throughout. There were more surprises, which made it much more interesting, however, some of his details were confusing and I got lost at a few points. Nevertheless, this book had more romance and gory details, which I thought allowed it to develop into a better plot. However, I still do not like how much Book is stuck to Hope, and how everything he does seems to relate back to her. The plot of the story was a good continua [...]


    18. "Mankind's capacity for evil" a phrase from the book that is the essence of the story & what the Western Federation officials symbolize. Does violence ever justify being answered with likewise violence? Should mercy be forgotten? Lots of mysteries "pepper" this thrilling full of action book, the reason for the experiments, who is the woman in Book's dream, the Man in Orange etc making us turn page after page. The titular capture is not at all what u think and such a jawdropper. The only thin [...]


    19. Full disclosure: the author has been a friend of mine for about 30 years. This has a lot to do with why I read the book, but nothing to do with how much I enjoyed it. I don't read teen fiction as a rule, so I was delighted by how well this story is told. Suspenseful and compelling story. It was a real page turner for me -- I couldn't put it down. Great characters - empathetic and complex - with a true understanding of the moral dilemmas that face young people. I read the first and enjoyed it tre [...]


    20. The second installment of "The Prey" trilogy picks up where the first left off, with the Less Thans and Sisters determined to head back and free their friends. It's a harrowing journey, but one that opens up the world of America post-Omega in startling and stunning ways. It seems that nothing is what it seems, and each character has secrets to reveal as you track along with Book and Hope on an adventure that ups the stakes in deadly ways. This story takes the type of unexpected twists that come [...]


    21. Been waiting a year for this book to come out. It keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time. The only downside is having to wait an entire year to see how characters that you have become attached to prevail in the next chapter. Hate spoilers and giving to much away on these books would be a crime. If you like books that speak to you and characters that jump off the page then take a chance and check them out.


    22. After thoroughly enjoying the first in this trilogy, I had high hopes for this title. I was not disappointed! Strong writing, believable characters, and a roller coaster of plot twists kept me from wanting to set this one down. I highly recommend this trilogy (2 so far) to anyone who enjoys YA dystopian future books, in line with The Hunger Games or Maze Runner. When does the third come out?!


    23. It has nice twists but the drama between Book and Faith is too mellow dramatic. The thoughts they have about each other are too simple in a destroyed world like that. the ending is AMAZING but the book still lacks a descriptive tone, which kind of sucks you out of the book. Needs work but I still highly recommend


    24. I finished the book a little while ago and it was fantastic! It kept me on edge, threw in some mystery, the twists and turns are so intriguing! Each character developed in so many good ways, even the smaller characters. The story is progressing in such an interesting way, I can wait to see what happens next!


    25. This book was really great. Not as good as the first but on another level for a second book in a series. I enjoyed reading it immensely. Hats off to Isbell because he followed up The Prey really amazingly.
