Some better than others

This book was ok, some of the stories contained within were way better written and voice acted than others. What I did enjoy was that unblooded Predators were several levels below their more experienced older counter parts and it showed.

Fun listen

I enjoyed most of the stories. A problem I found was that some writers stretched things a bit. One story with Predators going after 2 people who defeated some nearly a decade earlier was one. How did these Predators find them? How did the information get to them? Then a Predator prisoner forced in illegal fight in outer space. A rescue party shows up. How they did they find him? That was balanced out with a possible reason for why General Stonewall Jackson was shot by one of his own men during the Civil War among the other stories. This is a book that most can enjoy.

For the Love of Predator

This is a totally biased review since I love Predator and all things Predator. These stories are short and sweet and packed with all the things people love about Predator. There are 16 short stories ranging in time and space. A must read/listen for Predator fans.

Great Listen

Great idea. 16 stories all worth listening to. Hope there is more like these in the future. Expand it into Aliens vs Predators vs Humans

Predator: If It Bleeds

I don’t write many reviews but in this case I must say that I really enjoyed this book with all the short stories. They were all excellent. I want more!

Fun Stories involving Ya-ucha (Predator)

I enjoyed almost every story. I am generally not a fan of short story collections, but this one was irresistible. We get to see Stone wall Jackson face these perfect hunters! Each story feels like a real historical antidote documenting the human encounters with this relentless foe. I elect to keep my review short so I don't let any spoilers slip! If you are a fan of the Predator world of movies, books, and the occasional bloodbath, then this is the book for you. It's also convenient that each chapter starts a new story.

Well Produced.

Good narrations, fun to listen. Most stories are well written and entertaining. Narrators show their experience and enjoyment in reading the material.

A mix of good and okay

Some stories were great, while others were mediocre. storyteller was fine. Only a few parts added to the lore. It honestly felt like being read potential scripts. No regrets though.

MEH

Some stories were good; some not. Some narrators were good; some not. A few of the stories definitely should be made into full length novels. The story involving Fernando was hilarious! I wish that one was full-length. All in all, most of the stories were lame. Not worth the $.

Surprising!!!!!

I didn’t think I’d like this after first listening to it until I realised the stories were Predator encounters with humans throughout time and then each story made sense, so to speak, and then very enjoyable. The narrators are brilliant. I could happily listen to a lot more of this kind of aAudible book. Thanks!

A superb series of Predator tales.

it is obvious that the various authors of the short stories in this book have watched Predator 1 & 2 and genuinely understand why the Yautja are iconic. Each tale is standalone, detailed and enthralling. Vikings, Samurai, Vietnam and the near future, all are covered and covered well. Even a certain world-weary LA cop makes a showing. I love it and I'd love it more if the segments could be filmed. Then P1&2 might actually have sequels worthy of unironic mention.

Very good

was a bit put off at first as it is included in the Rage Series for some reason but is totally unrelated. some great stories and alternate takes on history that make it enjoyable

For all Predator fans

A great range of stories If you thought you truly understood the Predators, think again. Multi-Faceted, a guide to how to survive and even gain the respect of our warrior reflections. Enjoy

Decent read.

Enjoyed the first 15 of 17 chapters. Every chapter has a different narrator and most are good but the final two chapters narrators were irritating.

Some brilliant stories but not enough.

Some brilliant stories which I really enjoyed but some that I totally lost interest in quite quickly. Some glaring errors. The main one for me was that one author thinks that there's 240 seconds in 3 minutes.

If ur a fan..

Fans of the predator franchise, fear not. This is absolute gold. Some stories are short and fun, others are more in depth but the quality and attention to detail and commitment to cannon/story telling makes each one a joy. A gross, unnerving joy. Some touched on..or expanded established stories and others are entirely new. Some take in the view points of the Yautja and some are only told from the the humans perspective but all are well done. I think putting the predators in various times in history is the best way to explore what is otherwise a fairly routine tale..they come, they hunt, they slay or get beaten. It’s most entertaining when the people outwit or match the hunters rather than the outright mass death. Anyway..a great listen for short car rides and commutes.

Slow burner but hot flame!

I guess the joy of many short stories is you get just that. I really enjoyed every story, and I found it best with a decent break between each, to help digest the previous story and theme. The narrators were good and the change of story paces were engaging.
