Review by: Sarah Robb on Nov. 04, 2012 : star star star star
I'm glad I downloaded Predators as it quickly became a real page turner. The story had me spellbound as I followed the character Ann through a world populated with vampires. It was an uneasy, mysterious and irrational world filled with unpredictable situations. Through all of this the character struggles to find clarity in a detective-like manner, and restore some sanity to her world.

Review by: Adam La Rusic on Sep. 26, 2012 : star star star star
In this supernatural mystery, author Wanda La Claire gives us a thinking person's heroine in Ann LePage, far from the shrieking buxom bimbo of the B-movies. When Ann finds her best friend hideously murdered, she sets in motion a chain of events that tears her life from its moorings in Vancouver, carrying the adventure to old Europe. Pursued by forces she does not understand, she slowly pieces together her own predicament and past, and unveils a shadowy realm of otherworldly creatures.

La Claire eschews the gorefest and tired tropes of many horror offerings, preferring instead to let the camera linger on the emotional damage wrought by violent death, to good effect. I particularly enjoyed the mystery element of the book; La Claire handles the suspense tactfully, never revealing any more than the reader has to know, so that our eyes are opened at the same time as LePage's.

All in all, an effective, intriguing and highly readable first novel. I'm looking forward to the sequel.

Review by: Tara Parsons on Aug. 22, 2012 : (no rating)
The storyline of Predators drew me in right away and I couldn’t wait to get back to the characters every night. I did find myself getting a little creeped-out and looking over my shoulder every now and then as I read at my computer one evening. Looking forward to the sequel – hope I don’t have to wait too long!
