The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Trap is the third and final instalment in Andrew Fukuda's heart-stopping trilogy that began with The Hunt and The Prey. Featuring 17 year old Gene - a lone human survivor who against all odds has managed to survive in a horrifying world where his peers (including his family) have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. Packed with terror, tension and plot twists that pounce on the reader at every corner, this trilogy conclusion is an ambitious, cleverly told story that will ensure fans will be on tenterhooks right through until the final denouement. For those excited by the sound of this finale in the trilogy, we urge you to read all three.

In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review the first title in this series, The Hunt . You can read their reveiws below.

The Trap by Andrew Fukuda

After barely escaping the Mission alive, Gene and Sissy face an impossible task: staying alive long enough to stop an entire world bent on their destruction. Bound on a train heading into the unknown with the surviving Mission girls, Gene, Sissy, David, and Epap must stick together and use everything they have to protect each other and their only hope: the cure that will turn the blood-thirsty creatures around them into humans again. Now that they know how to reverse the virus, Gene and Sissy have one final chance to save those they love and create a better life for themselves. But as they struggle to get there, Gene's mission sets him on a crash course with Ashley June, his first love ...and his deadliest enemy.
