The Prey, by Andrew Fukuda, Reviewed.

This science fiction novel was found in the small library of the hotel where I holidayed on the Greek Island of Thassos.

Although this is the middle book of a trilogy, it stands quite well on its own.

The depictions of both a world strangled by the genetic mistake of a fanatic and a sub-society living in a false world of hypocrisy and self-delusion are brilliantly devised and realised.

The characters hum with real life and emotions in this dystopian tale of hope. There are missing details of some ‘hows’ and ‘whys’, especially concerning technological innovation in this terrifying world, but the story sprints along at such a pace that the reader is compelled to turn each page.

I read this whilst relaxing by the pool under a broiling sun and thoroughly enjoyed the read. Science fiction lovers will love this one.
