Book 1: Predator & Prey
Lily works the night shift at a radio station, taking calls from forlorn and damaged souls who can't sleep. She knows their pain and they find solace in her comforting words. The city is ruthless; nameless creatures roam the streets and prey on the lost and innocent.

As she leaves work one night at the crest of dawn, Lily comes face-to-face with depravity. She is a survivor at heart, but she is unfairly outnumbered and surrenders to her fate. From the shadows an ally emerges, the mysterious and alluring, Wolf. After coming to Lily's aid, he takes her to shelter.

The immediate danger has passed, but the incident is far from over. Wolf tells Lily she is not prey, and sets off into the night with her by his side to set a wrong right. What she sees when entering the dark heart of the city will change her existence forever. Has Wolf taken on a force too big? Will Lily survive the night?


Book 2: Beast
It has been days since Lily killed the vampire responsible for her brutal attack. Now she and Wolf have been summoned by the Society to answer for her actions. Standing before the Regent, she learns she has tipped the human and supernatural scales. A new vampire is required to restore balance.

When she hears the penalty for her crime, Wolf protectively steps in and accepts a dangerous task in exchange for her freedom. He must find the rogue vampire who has been slaughtering citizens in their territory or risk losing Lily to the Society. And he only has days to do it.

As the night of reckoning fast approaches, Lily finds an unlikely advocate in a centuries-old, seductive vampire named Athene who gives her an ominous warning. Athene knows secrets about Wolf she won't divulge, which only complicates the mysterious revelation Lily has recently discovered about herself.

Screams, growls, and cries echo throughout the darkest, desolate streets of the city. The final showdown determines who is predator and who will become prey. One thing remains certain-no one escapes the night unscathed.

Beast is the much anticipated sequel to Predator & Prey by James D Horton.


Book 3: Control
Two weeks have passed since Lily became a vampire and things couldn't be worse. She is starving, out of control, and Wolf has vanished. Her maker, Athene, is patient, but fails to help Lily tame the beast within. After Lily's introduction to Society goes horribly wrong, she is sent to train with Griogar, a narcissistic vampire with questionable tactics.

A powerful member of Society, John Genosoa, has secretly arranged for Wolf's mate to return. The distraction works. Wolf and Luna's reunion is passionate, yet laced with memories of insurmountable loss. Even so, neither is able to refuse the animalistic magnetism drawing them together.

When Lily reaches a new low during a session with Griogar, Wolf reappears. She's furious, but vulnerable to his charm and follows him beneath the City. Lily finds out Wolf has spent ages chasing a legendary tale of transcendence and discovers who has been keeping him away.

Lily is forced to put aside her heartache when Genosoa's plan threatens the City's inhabitants. Genosoa's magic is strong, but not strong enough to keep the existence of vampires a secret from humans. He needs souls to sacrifice.

Wolf, Lily and Luna are dispatched by the Keeper and must act fast to stop the killing of innocents. Screams of agony and a scene of destruction greet them, but they are confronted with a much more sinister obstacle and it's too late to turn back. What begins as a battle turns into an all-out war for their very survival.

Ancient histories are told, myths are revealed and dangerous paths are taken in Control , the highly anticipated third installment in the Predator & Prey series by author James D. Horton.


Book 1
4/5

Lily works as a radio show host at night. She is able to be in control when she doesnt feel she has control anywhere else. In this town though there are vampires. You stay away at night and out of the forest.
She leaves for work and gets attacked by a group of low lives. It turns out that it was an attack on her to draw out a vampire named Wolf/Dallas.
He saves her and then takes her home to protect her. The he claims her to the others as being his.
THis story is very short but very good. Before I knew it I had finished the book and was wanting more. Lily is a character that I feel is very relatable. She struggles with feeling control in her life with all that she has experienced.
I did not really feel I learned much about Wolf/Dallas in this book. I know that he has liked Lily for awhile and that the main vampire people wanted him drawn out to attack him. Besides that knowledge was very lacking.
I am hoping that the next books talk more about Lily and her past. Also letting us know more about Dallas.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book 2
4/5
This book picks up 3 days after book 1. Wolf and lily are off to a council meeting where they tell wolf that she is to be tried for killing a vampire. They know that the society is just trying to use wolf, but not why. After work lily meets Athene and warns her that the vampires are using her to get to wolf. Things go down how they except and wolf goes after a threat to vampires. Things take a turn for the worst.
I loved Lily even more this time. She is learning that she is strong and not prey to anyone. On the other side I hate Wolf even more.
I get that he has had some bad things happen. It was hinted in this book but nothing was really revealed. He seems arrogant and selfish and an all around jerk. I hope either wolf opens up some and actually is honest with himself and Lily. Or a new male is brought in.
I love Lily's powers and thought Athene was pretty awesome and I hope we see more of her in the next book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
