Was the disc left on the ship though? Harrigan only took the pistol?

EJA

Pretty sure Harrigan did not take the disc.

Finished the book but liked the first half more than the second.
The fight scenes were the meat of the book, and interesting in a sense that you knew where each bullet hit and which exact injuries anyone had.
Also, the drug house and fairground scenes were really cool to picture in your head.

A prequel novel that actually comes out before the movie? The shock!! The amazement!! 😮

I'm about a fourth of the way in, had been waiting until after seeing the film to dig into it.

It's really good so far!

I read it upon release and was very happy with it. I hoped that with the prequel novel being so good, that the movie would be. Not managed to see it, yet, so the jury is out on that so far.

I'm kind of curious if the bio helmet we see in the display case next to jungle hunters  belongs to the predator in this novel.

Does this book have some yautja PoV?

I wondered where that mask came from and I like this explanation.

Plenty, just posted about it in the novelization thread lol. I think it's a book well worth picking up, just for those POV scenes alone. Was so interesting getting more perspective on their "view" of humanity.

About the only logical explanation I can think of. Although traeger only indicates that there were 2 known visits. Then again we see lex's spear. Hell if I know 🤷‍♂️

If I remember right, the novelization for the original movie has some Predator POV stuff. I know the Predator2 novelization does.

Traeger only calls out those two specifically, but he never indicates they're the only two.

This sounds almost as good as South China Sea

It's better than South China Sea, imo.  More characterization of the predator's thought process and motivations.

My review is now up :)

https://www.avpgalaxy.net/literature/reviews/the-predator-hunters-and-hunted/

Great review btw, I agree 100%. 

Regarding the cloak..
Spoiler
.I had simply assumed they upgraded technology at that point, especially with the focus on evolving and the forthcoming "Upgrade" as well.

Just finished the book. I really liked the predator as a character, and there were lots of chapters from his perspective and hints of lore to keep me happy! There were a couple bits that could prove intriguing for the movie...

Spoiler


I'm curious as to why Keyes deliberately let the predator escape, and if, as speculated in the very end, the pred really did manage to send a transmission out before the gauntlet explosion.
[close]

Spoiler
Was it meant to be Keyes? I thought it was one of Traeger's random allies.
[close]


Oh yes, I went back to check and you're right:
Spoiler
Keyes examines the predator earlier, and when the man comes in to let the pred escape, the pred think that he hasn't seen this human before. I think I just misread because the man was described as pale and blonde and I automatically thought of Keyes!
[close]
Spoiler

I've read the book 3 times now and this point still has me turned around.  In the film, Keyes tells Bracket not to let the predator get away.  However, in the predator novelization, Keyes is kind of an unhinged / wacky scientist that I could see letting the predator escape.  Fun conjecture, regardless.

I'm actually reading right now...I think it's just as good as South China Sea, with more detailed characterisation of the Yautja.

Pleasantly surprised by this
