PREDATOR - OUTSTANDING IN THIS GENRE
4 June 2016
While this book is not for everyone, I found it riveting. It is a striking story of survival, both physically and mentally. Added to that, it's a love story of two lost souls, Cara and Damian, who find and accept each other - they come to mean 'life' to each other.
The writing style is amost report-like and a little clinical in the first third, but the style works. It then morphs into narrative style with some dreamlike features, and back to a harsh feel - all depending on Cara's state of mind. I found this combination of styles very interesting and appealing. So, essentially, the narrative centres around her, but both Cara and Damian are given POV chapters.
It is a very confronting, dark and foreboding narrative and not for the faint-hearted. However, it has many tender scenes and others that depict normalcy.
Predator is a well-written book with well-developed characters and plot, so it keeps your interest from start to finish. The climax/resolution is quick, but that works, too. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy this genre, but give a warning to those with emotional triggers.
***possible spoiler alert! I have one small issue, but it didn't effect the story at all, so I didn't take off any stars. I will try to word this carefully, so I don't spoil this part of the story, but please don't read on if you are concerned. There was an inconsistency related to leaving the first house. What about all the sensitive information stored in Damian's office? Apologies if that was addressed and I missed it***
