AVP book 1: Prey
Unlike the next 2 installments of this trilogy, of which the third is by far the words, this AVP captures the feel of the setting best.
It also show the humans in a sub position and the heroine has not yet become some stereotypical girlpoweresque and completely unbelievable character.
There is a good buildup, the story runs smoothly and is well written.
Though the human perspective is dominant, the Predators receive a good doze of perspective always as the male 'hero' is in fact a veteran Yautja.
The heroine and Predator are forced to team up which will lead to a climactic battle with an Alien Queen at the end of the book.
From start to finish, the books is a good read and both Predator and Alien fans will be satisfied.
The sequels however should be approached with extreme caution in my own opionion.
Book 2 is still pleasant to read but i'd only give it a 3/5 while book 3 manages to reach only 2,5.
Thus a potentially good series with a brilliant start evolved into a series focussing far too much on a single heroine than the Alien and Predator conflict let alone gave some spotlight to other humans.
This book kicked ass!
This book gave alot of perspective into the hunt. It showed how the predators regard humans, and aliens. They have to first hunt aliens before they can hunt humans. They consider humans more dangerous because we're 'the prey who shoot back.' But the book has a good story, strong characters/plot, and plenty of action. I couldn't stop reading it once I started!!!
Better then the Movies
Love this book they should of based the Entire movie on this book.
aliens vs predator: prey
this book has everything that makes a great
story. it has action, suspense, drama and
and is so compelling and exciting you'll
find yourself at least once or twice going
tense and in a state of full concentration
during a few scenes! all the characters from
lead to cameo have a full personality and
all their actions are reflected by this.
it also offers a great detail into the
yautja blooding rituals threw the narrative
of one of the main protagonists dachande,
a powerful and honourable elder of the
predator hunters. overall it is an incredible
experience to all fans of alien, predator and
alien vs predator. an unregretable bargain
whatever the cost.

The book was great, I'm lgad Machiko survived sad that Dachande didn't. It was a great story though! Can't wait to get the next book!
