When a Russian criminal is torn to pieces by a powerful animal, Moscow cop Lev Dasaev follows the trail to the U.S. - and to the lair of a murderous madman called Wheeler Burns.
Ruth Templeton will stop at nothing to destroy Laura Greenacre, the mysterious woman who was last seen disappearing into the tunnels beneath London - and her quest leads her to America.
The Templetons and the Greenacres will go to war one last time. And as in London eight years previously, werewolves will be unleashed - this time on the streets of New York.
Bloodlust and vengeance unite Ruth and Burns as they conspire to annihilate Lev and Laura - and the ultimate hunter becomes the ultimate prey...

Review by tina1969
Prey is the sequel to Maneater and starts eight years on from where the first book finished. We see the return of Laura Greenacre and John Thorne who are both in hiding from the enemy Ruth Templeton.A well worthy and brilliant read, and the book is just as good as the first. The book has plenty of gore and body ripping with werewolves on the rampage. For me there has always been only three horror writers, Stephen King, James Herbert and Anne Rice, and now there is a fourth, Thomas Emson. What TE has done is given horror back to the adult. I am a big fan of the Twilights and Vampire Diaries but they lack the bite because they can be sugary and roamantic as they are aimed at the young adult market. Maneater and Prey are very adult but saying that can be read by the young adult but they are really gory and are pacy reads. On a negative the book was too gory in places and there is only so much blood you can fit onto a page. I also felt that the final showdown between Laura and Ruth was very quick with no bulid up and was sorted on one page at the end of the story.I have recently meet the author at a vampire event at my local library and he is a really nice guy. Next stop for me the vampires in Skarlet!
