Audiobook Review: The Prey (Betania Breed, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Prey by Jenny Foster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I will go off-mission. For her. 

I am a cyborg. Half human, half machine. 

My creator optimized me until I was exactly what he wanted. I have turned into an elite bounty hunter. My orders are simple. Anyone who endangers the certain survival of the human race is my prey. 

The word failure is not part of my vocabulary. 
Compassion is nothing more than a phrase. 
My mechanical heart does not recognize feelings. 

Until an assignment leads me straight to Mara. My creator’s beautiful daughter. 

To her, cyborgs are nothing more than henchmen who quietly take care of anything that humans shy away from. When my eyes catch hers, I feel an unexplainable connection. Mara awakens something in me that I can neither hunt, nor kill. 

*She* becomes my prey. 
The most impossible bounty hunt of my life.

Mara and Johar – Mara is daughter to Dr. Ruthiel, who did the genetic experiments on Zeyliv and his people. She is a doctor in her own right and lives to make her father proud. Johar is a Cyborg and Mara hates Cyborgs, though she appreciates that Johar was well made and is an impressive member of his kind. Though half-humans as they are derogatorily called, are looked upon as not as good as humans or genetically enhanced humans.

Dr. Ruthiel tells Mara and Johar (who is the best bounty hunter in the galaxy) that they need to go after Cassie from The Captive whom they know is with Khazaar who may be dangerous since he is a Qua’Hathri. They want Cassie since she is pregnant with twins (on is Khazaar’s and one Zeyliv’s).

Mara is interested in making humans stronger so they are not seen throughout the galaxy as weak and easy marks, like they were when the Sethari conquered Earth Before the Qua’Hathri freed Earth in exchange for women. Mara thinks her father is working within legal guidelines, but she feels that something is wrong with the assignment her father gave her.

Mara is not very likable at the beginning of the book. She is definitely prejudiced against cyborgs and sees them less like people and more like robots. She is also a bit too eager to please her father and not too worried about what they are doing to human beings at the research center. She thinks all his experiments were done on people that volunteered for them in order to be released from prison and that those who escaped did so due to aggression issues that were a result of the experiments, not that they were mistreated in any way.

This book was also narrated via solo narration and narrated by Justine Eyre who is a veteran narrator and I like her style. She does a great job and this story was interesting. Mara and Johar pose as smugglers and lovers. There are a bunch of secrets that Mara is not aware of that come out in the telling of this one.
