Book 1

If you could sum up Twins of Prey in three words, what would they be?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this first book by W.C. Hoffman. The story is great.Imagine twin orphan brothers, raised in the wild by a man who has cast society aside. They learn to live off the land, to hunt and kill all manner of prey, including human trespassers. Looking forward for book 2

A tense read.

Any additional comments?

This is the story of Tomek and Drake who have been raised by a man they call Uncle. Their life is totally off the grid, with them being the ultimate hunter gatherers. Their Uncle thought them everything they know, including their right to guard their territory against intruders and that the government and everything modern is bad! When Uncle dies and the boys are left to fend for themselves, they find themselves facing things they never had to before. When 2 hikers come upon the boys, the boys end up killing them but what they don't know is the boys had a powerful dad who will stop at nothing to get answers. When the world intrudes upon the boys, they know they need to fight to survive.

This reminded me of the show that was on telly about the preppers. You know the type that believe the government are out to get you and you have to hide away. This just takes it that bit more in that the boys are brought up to look after themselves. They dont shy away from anything, including killing humans. They live off the land and have been to the city only once in their lives. They are totally cut off from humanity and it shows.

This was a thrilling and often times violent read. The boys know no other way of life so you can't help but feel sorry for them. Yet they are hard to like because they have no compassion and don't bat an eye when they kill. I understand the way they are though I didn't like it!

Overall, I enjoyed this. It's a story of the extreme and I enjoyed finding certain things out about the boys though I did find a certain revelation to be a bit out there. It's a tense and thrilling story and I'm glad I read it.

I listened to the audio and thoroughly enjoyed the narrator. He did a great job of bringing the story to life though I did think he could of used a different tone with each brother.

Suspenseful and Riveting

Twins of Prey was a very interesting listen. I feel this book is important in some way. It was about survival. Twins, Drake and Tomek are rescued from a car accident by a survivalist who had former military experience. They called him "Uncle". He raised them, teaching them everything they needed to survive in the wild. Hunting, fishing, making poison from nightshade for their arrows, etc. When a hunter finds his way into there woods and shoots their buck, they kill the hunter. This sets off a whole chain of events of hunting and being hunted. Uncle's mantra was 'after five stay alive' and they boys never forgot.

The sheriff of Pine Run puts together a group of deputies and goes out hunting for the boys and the boys, relying on their knowledge of the land and what Uncle had taught them became the hunters. It came down to survival of the fittest. This story was at times gory but so riveting with great twists that I couldn't put it down. I think the author did a great job writing this and I look forward to Book 2, "Homecoming".

About the narrator: Daniel Rose did a terrific job voicing this audiobook. I think his tone and voice inflections were perfect. He kept the story flowing at a good pace and he spoke clearly and was easy to understand. I was very happy with his performance and again look forward to listening to more in book 2.

I received this audiobook foc in exchange for an unbiased review.

Unusual story of twin boys raised to be self sufficient in the woods.

The boys were saved from a car wreck where the mother was dying. She begged the rescuer to take her boys and keep them safe. After Uncle dies the twins make it quite well on their own until two hunters invade their sanctuary and put their secret survival at risk. The twins kill the hunters in self defense but that brings an investigation down on them from a corrupt sheriff and his cronies . It's kill or be killed. Good narration.

Badass book!

As someone who doesn't like books I really enjoyed this one! The author does an incredible job at making the scene real. Add in the fact that you can truly believe everything going on could really happen in real life adds a realism aspect that just makes it that much more enjoyable!

Great narration & Story. For older children/adult

The narration was great. A good story. I’d recommend this for adults or older children. Lots of killing and violence. Great first novel. We will definitely listen to the next one.
This summarizes the story perfectly: (From another writeup): Does nature vs nurture matter, when death is your only option? Orphaned twin boys are raised by a woodsman they call ''Uncle,'' away from the society he bitterly left years ago. Trained in the arts of the woodsman, they became the ultimate hunting, fishing, surviving and killing forces that Uncle had designed them to be. However, Uncle knew he was leaving this world and that the twins would be okay with the world. What Uncle could have never known was if the world would be okay with the twins. When changing lives is not an option, the twins must begin to take lives. Enjoy this fast paced, thrilling outdoors adventure novel as the Twins battle against the society that wants to end their woodland way of life. Twins of Prey is W.C. Hoffman's first novel in the Twins of Prey series.

Wow!

What an attention grabbing story! I would listen to this in the car on my way places. I always found myself sitting for several minutes not wanting to stop listening. I have been searching for books like this series for a while. I can't wait to listen to the others in the series!
