College life isn’t what Emily expected.
She expected to spend freshman year strolling through the ivy-covered campus with new friends, finally feeling like she belonged. Instead, she walks the campus alone, still not having found her place or her people so far away from home.
But then the Kingdom finds her.
The Kingdom, an exclusive on-campus group, offers everything Emily expected of college and more: acceptance, friends, a potential boyfriend, and a chance to spend the summer in Italy on a mission trip. But the trip is not what she thought it would be. Emily and the others are stripped of their passports and money. They’re cut off from their families back home. The Kingdom’s practices become increasingly manipulative and dangerous.
And someone ends up dead.
What happens when you unknowingly join a cult?
Those who Prey was such an eye opening read. It shows you not to trust people you just met. Also that anyone can prey on people who are lonely. The storyline was so good and very tense. The characters you will like as well. The first couple pages draws you in good and you can’t seem to put this book down.
I did like Emily in the book. It’s her first time leaving home and doing college life. She tries to do the right thing with her roommate and it backfires. Emily becomes and outcast at school. Then a chance encounter with Josh change things.
She has a new friends to hang with, a new boy crush and get to go away to Italy for a bit. It all seems like a big dream come true, but once she enters Itlay things take a turn for the worse. Will Emily be able to escape the Kingdom?
This book was very suspenseful in the beginning to the end. So I read it in one sitting. Also look how pretty this cover to book. You can see how lonely Emily looks on it and I like the color pink. This book was something new to me. I never read anything about cults before, but this book blew my mind. It very eye opening as I said before. Just be cautious on new people you meet.
