5 out of 5 stars
The story Heart's Prey by Natalina Reis is a dystopian/fantasy book. It is a story that I enjoyed reading and didn’t want to put down until I had finished the last page. The characters are trying to survive in a destroyed world and also realizing what they have always been taught and believe may not be the truth. They are in constant danger from genetically-altered creatures and are searching for a safe place to live. Will they find this place? Will they be able to work together to survive? This is a story that had me quickly turning pages in order to find out what happens next. I loved reading about the characters of Jia and Cees. I felt bad for how they have been treated in the past by society. It is wonderful to read about the connection/attraction that they two have for each other and I wanted them to be able to find happiness together. This is a book that shows how discrimination can run rampant and how the need of some to think of themselves better than others leads to pain and suffering. Now that everyone is in the same danger can they learn to put their past beliefs behind and trust one another? I have read several books by the author and have always found that she writes wonderful stories with amazing characters. I can’t wait to read what she writes next.
Not my first read by this author, I knew I was in for a engaging, masterfully written, heart pounding story. I was not disappointed. This dystopian/fantasy had everything I loved about the genera and more. Opening up strong and we are tossed into this nightmarish world, and are pulled into its hell as we meet our MC's. This book wasn't pulling any punches. That dark opening hooks you with in seconds of reading the first paragraph. It sets the stage for this unique tale of finding and holding on to love, when everything is basically a horrifying hell.
Jia and Cees, I don't think I shipped a couple so fast before in my life. They're written so well that you can feel their connection. Their bond was real and didn't fell forced. I can over look the insta-everything, because of the setting and the whole, could die at any moment thing. When it's writing right, it's written right. and Natalina has this knack of knowing how to create real emotions through her writing and her MC's pairings.
The only thing I can say that I didn't like.. it was too short! I'm hoping there is going to be more from this world, even though Jia and Cees story had a good close out, I believe there is room to explore other aspects of this dangerous dystopian world. So take my high recommendation that you will be captured by the darkness, but stay for the small glimmer of hope that is our MC's.
This is a dystopian romance involving Jia and Cees. Creatures have come in and destroyed every they ever knew. Gone is most of their friends and what they knew of living. This is both good and bad. Cees grew up in a lower caste. Not only that, he was an outcast even among his own people. Jia was pretty well off. But her life still wasn't perfect. When the attacks happened, circumstances brought them together. To survive, they will need each other. But the attraction between them is obvious. Before the attacks, they could never be together. Now, that is all erased and maybe things are possible. But can they overcome the things they were raised to believe? Not only that, they have to keep moving, they have to find away to survive these beasts. Will there ever be peace again?
This was a well written story involving the end of civilization as they knew it. The characters are well written and believable. It was refreshing to see that it is not only just your typical relationships. You do not see that much in a book that wasn't specially written for that. I enjoyed that because I like diversity and something unexpected in my books. The story itself -- them fighting for survival -- makes this book all that much better. They run into many problems and makes it all the more real.
I highly recommend this book for those that enjoy dystopian, romance, and fighting for survival books.
Heart’s Prey is a great read from Natalina Reis. I have read a few of Ms. Reis’s books now and she never fails to deliver a story that captivates my attention from beginning to end. This book has a bit of a dystopian feel to it and is a little different from some of her other books I have read. Wonderfully original and beautifully written this Young Adults/New Adults book is a forbidden romance story that gives us an up close and personal look at castes/classes, prejudices, racism, genetic engineering, action, love, friendship, romance, drama, and more.
I enjoyed getting to know Jia and Cees- and following them through their story. They are endearing and well-developed characters who have complex personalities and complicated lives. They live in a world that was destroyed, where things they believed may not be true. Genetically engineered beasts now roam, and danger is an ever-present threat. They are determined to find somewhere safe where they can live. With secrets revealed, their survival at stake, danger around every corner, prejudices, battling long held traditions and beliefs- will they find everything they hope for?
This is quite and intriguing and thought-provoking story that I found to be an unexpected surprise. I don’t really know what I was expecting when I started, but I did know that Ms. Reis would tell great story, which she did- I just didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I have.
Thank you, Ms. Reis!
