Review: “Predator & Prey” by James D. Horton

“Predator & Prey” by James D. Horton

Available from: Amazon
Released on: 22 July 2014
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Description: Lily works the night shift at a radio station, taking calls from forlorn and damaged souls who can’t sleep. She knows their pain and they find solace in her comforting words. The city is ruthless; nameless creatures roam the streets and prey on the lost and innocent.

As she leaves work one night at the crest of dawn, Lily comes face-to-face with depravity. She is a survivor at heart, but she is unfairly outnumbered and surrenders to her fate. From the shadows an ally emerges, the mysterious and alluring, Wolf. After coming to Lily’s aid, he takes her to shelter.

The immediate danger has passed, but the incident is far from over. Wolf tells Lily she is not prey, and sets off into the night with her by his side to set a wrong right. What she sees when entering the dark heart of the city will change her existence forever. Has Wolf taken on a force too big? Will Lily survive the night?

Review: This story was rather short and went very fast, which you know going in that it won’t be long so I’m debating whether I thought it was too fast or not. I don’t think it was, but still feel as though something was missing. I think this felt more like an excerpt from a bigger book than a story, even a short story, on its own.

But, the reading flowed well. It was enjoyable and intriguing. Nothing jumped out about the two main characters to make you dislike either, and the Enigma Thing worked well for the character of Wolf. Still, I think I would have liked to have seen more of a That Spark OMG to really feel their connection.

All that being said, it was a fun, fast read and I think I’m curious to see what more happens with these two. 4 Fireballs.
