    "Top 3 out of his 23 Davenport Novels"

    All the Davenport Novels are worth a read, this particular book is great because it revolves around a younger, crazier, slutty, always manipulative Lucas, a group of fugitives that are both interesting & dangerous, & many of Davenports close friends in the future are cementing they're loyalties from these earlier novels. For some reason I read so many of the other Prey novels before I came back & read this one which is technically the 2nd in the series... It was worth it almost to the point I wish I read it earlier. But all his books are great & the development of Lucas & his family all take place throughout the series but this book is still in the stages before he had to worry about another woman, kids, politics, & future responsibilities I ended up reading at almost the same time because I was reading Silken Prey shorty after....

    Highly recommend this book... LUCAS is establishing why he is such a bada$* & has the reputation he does....

    "Lucas Davenport = Great"
    If you could sum up Shadow Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Davenport, suspenseful, exciting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While I guess Davenport but another character, it would be Lily. I enjoy the whole cast of characters in the Prey novels though.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read most of the Prey series and love it. Am going back and listening to them in order. This is his second book. The narration is excellent. Does not disappoint. I highly recommend this series.

I highly recommend this Prey Book.

    "Sandford and Ferrone - Match Made in Heaven"

    Is it possible to fall in love with an author/narrator/protagonist combo? Yes, indeed. Sandford, Ferrone and that sometimes naughty Davenport rock the story.

    John Sandford used incredibly good judgment choosing Richard Ferrone. Long live authors who "listen" to their own books being read!

    "Oldie but Goodie"
    If you could sum up Shadow Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, sarcastic, fun


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Prey?

    When Lucas first meets Shadow in the apartment


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Richard Ferrone has become Lucas Davenport. His voice brings the right amount of edge, sarcasm and humor. He is a great narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes if only I could.


    Any additional comments?

    So happy that the old Prey novels have been released in this fashion with Richard Ferrone reading them. Hats off to John Sandford, great author.

    One of the best in the Prey series. Subtle yet compelling and with a suspenseful plot. Richard Ferrone is a forceful and very listenable narrator.

    "mildly entertaining but hokey"

    I have loved John Sandford but this one was pretty lame. Predictable romance that was very melodramatic and a convoluted story that I really didn't find compelling.

    Yes


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Terror redefined.

    "I am HOOKED!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It starts off by gripping my interest and not letting go! I definitely recommend this book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Prey?

    The climax - the final showdown between good and evil - blew my mind. I was so nervous for Lucas and his family! I could barely breathe! Thank goodness for the safe!!


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Lucas - he has a cool, alpha male "swag" about him, and I can feel it through Richard Ferrone's voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beginning of the book was heartbreaking. Without giving away much, my heart ached for the poor girl. She was a human being...somebody's daughter. All I could think to myself is 'She will never be the same.'


    Any additional comments?

    I have purchased the next two books in this series! I love the Prey series thus far and plan to listen to each and every book!!!

    "Sandford's Prey series is superb except this one"

    The Prey series is a truly wonderful collection of books. Davenport is a complex character in the best of ways. He is a dodgy, reckless, self made rich guy with some unpleasant traits but he sure is fun. Intelligent friends and fellow cops add more humour and insight into the dark situations the barking mad criminals create. The descriptive writing is beautiful and thoughtful too, never jumping to simplistic assumptions about the forces that drive human beings.
    The audiobooks are just as they should be - unabridged and most importantly, read by the same excellent reader. When you have such a rich collection of characters as this you obviously form ideas and images about them. Changing the reader of a series is unbelievably stupid. It ruins continuity, and the rhythm and pace of the entire book. It is like turning the TV on to watch Inspector Morse and finding that he's played by an unknown actor.

    So, what is wrong with this one? It is the second Prey book and was the only one not recorded at the time. Perhaps because is was no good? It is drawn out with a weak storyline, a tedious sexual affair and unfocused baddies. All the things that John Sandford's Prey books are not, usually.

    Please don't judge the Prey series by this one. The best in the series in my opinion are two of the best books I have ever heard, the two Rinker books, Certain and Mortal Prey. There's not enough room or time here to do them justice. Perhaps it is best to start at the begining with Rules of Prey and omit this one.
