Overview

Machiko Noguchi accepted the assignment of supervising the ranching colony on Ryushi as a challenge. Little did she know that not onl would she have run the colony, she'd have to defend it with her life!

First the carcass of a spiderlike alien is discovered. Then a rancher's family is massacred. Finally a creature unlike any ever seen before is brought to the colony medical center, near death. It soon becomes clear thtat not one but two strains of alien life have landed near the settlement of Prosperity Wells. One kind — beetle black with shells hard as steel — have been spawned as the prey in a deadly hunt. The other kind — upright like humans but infinitely stronger and just as smart — are the Predators. Between them are the human colonists, unarmed and vulnerable. With the entire colony at risk, Machiko Noguchi must choose between death and survival — and may find her greatest ally in a Predator ready to kill her...

This was my first Sci-fi book I ever read. I read the entire book on a 16 hour Amtrak ride to Miami. Aliens vs. Predators Prey kept me entertained. It took me about 30 minutes to become familiar with the characters and become comfortable with the names and language of a new species. Afterwards, I could not stop reading. This book is written well enough that you can visualize the fight scenes and the adventure. I am now reading Alien vs. Predator War. I recommend this book if you enjoy Sci-Fi or if you need quick entertainment for 16 hours.

I read this book while doing a Tour of Duty in Iraq & let me just say, it kept my attention from start to finish, I did'nt want to put it down. (Tough to do in a combat zone). Very good story & characters. Plot very well done. Highly recommend. Now I must get the next that follows. Off to B & N.

this book realy captures the predators as not just mindles killing machines like the xenomorphs. I have read alien books and I've read predator books but this book tops all! once you get a few chapters in you'll never want to put it down! ether Naguchi's tale of her life, problems, and horrors, or Dachande's tale of leader ship, and discovery. With almost every chapter it will have you on the edge of your seat eyes wide! HIGHLY RECOMENDED for ages 13 and up

Aliens vs Predator: Prey is an excellent book. No hard words, ACTION, a good story and short chapters that makes you think 'Aww, just one more' at the end of every chapter. Its a page turner. The book is kind of divided into two books. You have the Predators and the Humans. One chapter might be about an encounter between the two races or something similar to that. Then the one chapter will be about the human character and how he/she reacted in that situation. The next chapter will be about the Predators reaction. The way that Steven and Stephanie have written the book is brilliant. I'm not much of a reader, but this book is so easy to read that.... just buy it. Period. Enjoy! Henrik

This is one the the best Aliens vs Predator ever writen. It shows the views of both of the main characters through most of the story. Here's the cool part, one of them is a predator by the name of Dachande and the other is a human by the name of Machiko Noguchi. Both have to fight back to back to not only survive the chaos but destory the aliens and save the colonist. They will have to trust one another if they expect to live through this nightmare.

Went a little slow in the beggining of course because they slowly recognize whats going on but once the action starts i can actually visualize an awesome battle.Great story of a civilation being caught in the middle of a hunt.Great

I 'borrowed' this book from a friend because of its flashy cover. what i found inside was a great story and perfected characters. Dachande who is one of the supporting charactors, shows what true predator honor is even when he is against all odds.

This is truly a great book. I first read this book when I was twenty-three, one year ago, and still enjoy it. Machico's struggle to be excepted by the ranchers as their leader is beleivable and the ending is very intense. This is the kind of book you have to make sure your family doesn't steal from you.

Aliens VS. Predator: Prey is the first title in this series, and I really liked the book. It offers a detailed look behind the Predator's race (Yautja), and their beleifs, ect. A Predator fan will really enjoy this series! The story revolves around a human female character, Machiko Naguchi, and her run-in with both alien life forms which will leave you wanting to read more! This book is great, and extremely recommended.

im stupid ive come to realize six stars ****** would be more like it

As I expressed in my title 'What can I say?' This is a good book but 5 stars oversays it but not by much. This book is next to flawless but it does not make the 'predators' as dangerous to humans as the movies. The predators are revialed in this book way more than they should have. What makes a book scarier is how much less we know about the creatures which leaves suprises always open. Even though Ive said bad in this review there is not enough room on this review sheet to put good.

I have read other Alien and Predator books as well as comics and totally flipped out when I saw Aliens vs. Predator. It is one of the best books I have read. It gives a good plot to the story, but at the same time there is fast paced action so the story doesnt dull up. I recomend this book.
