I esp liked "Chosen Prey" for a variety of reasons - not the least of which was the always enjoyable Sanford writing style & story construction. However, "Chosen", more than any other of the prey series thusfar, revealed in greater depth: 1) The complex nature of law enforcement & the legal process & 2) A more personal side of its recurring cast of characters. As an added bonus, we also got glimpses of the direction Lucas will be taking in his personal & "business" life.

I'm already on to the next installment & want to re-emphasize that the best reading experience for the prey series is to read them in order.

    What a bust

    Its not all too often that while reading a book that I decide what will happen to a point based on how an author works a character. While reading this book it was all to clear what the outcome would be and I was 99% right with about 119 pages left. That is too bad, this book started out really good. Had a nice pace going until mid-way through and it started to unravel page by page. Sandford seems to have hit a wall with this Prey series in my opinion. I have liked just about all of them but I have noticed a small decline in his writing, he is still good at what he does but maybe hes becoming bored with it himself. One other thing I have noticed is alot of time the same things are said in each book. I am not talking about a desciption of a character such as how Lucas looks or an item he is describing. Its more of a chain of words he uses alot, every book it seems. Just something personal I dont like is all but other than that Sandford is a good read but this book is lacking, you will figure it out before you get to heavy into it and that takes all the fun away from it.

    Language unnecessary

    This was the first book I have ever read by this author, and it will definately be the last. Sure, the story was great...my type of read, except for the fact that it had the most awful language in it that I have ever read!!!!!! The story would have been a lot better if it didn't have ' G.D.' and ' F' about 5 times on every page. I understand some language to set the atmosphere and so on, but THAT WAS RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!

    Chosen Prey Not First Choice of Prey Series

    If you're going to read the Prey Series, start with the first book Rules of Prey. By the time you reach Easy Prey and Chosen Prey, the twelfth and thirteenth books in the series, you will be a prey aficionado and able to better appreciate John Sandford's prolific prescience peddling prey.
