If ur a fan..

Fans of the predator franchise, fear not. This is absolute gold. Some stories are short and fun, others are more in depth but the quality and attention to detail and commitment to cannon/story telling makes each one a joy. A gross, unnerving joy. Some touched on..or expanded established stories and others are entirely new. Some take in the view points of the Yautja and some are only told from the the humans perspective but all are well done. I think putting the predators in various times in history is the best way to explore what is otherwise a fairly routine tale..they come, they hunt, they slay or get beaten. It’s most entertaining when the people outwit or match the hunters rather than the outright mass death. Anyway..a great listen for short car rides and commutes.

Some better than others

This book was ok, some of the stories contained within were way better written and voice acted than others. What I did enjoy was that unblooded Predators were several levels below their more experienced older counter parts and it showed.

Great Listen

Great idea. 16 stories all worth listening to. Hope there is more like these in the future. Expand it into Aliens vs Predators vs Humans

For the Love of Predator

This is a totally biased review since I love Predator and all things Predator. These stories are short and sweet and packed with all the things people love about Predator. There are 16 short stories ranging in time and space. A must read/listen for Predator fans.

Fun Stories involving Ya-ucha (Predator)

I enjoyed almost every story. I am generally not a fan of short story collections, but this one was irresistible. We get to see Stone wall Jackson face these perfect hunters! Each story feels like a real historical antidote documenting the human encounters with this relentless foe.

I elect to keep my review short so I don't let any spoilers slip! If you are a fan of the Predator world of movies, books, and the occasional bloodbath, then this is the book for you. It's also convenient that each chapter starts a new story.

Predator: If It Bleeds

I don’t write many reviews but in this case I must say that I really enjoyed this book with all the short stories. They were all excellent. I want more!

Fun listen

I enjoyed most of the stories. A problem I found was that some writers stretched things a bit. One story with Predators going after 2 people who defeated some nearly a decade earlier was one. How did these Predators find them? How did the information get to them? Then a Predator prisoner forced in illegal fight in outer space. A rescue party shows up. How they did they find him? That was balanced out with a possible reason for why General Stonewall Jackson was shot by one of his own men during the Civil War among the other stories. This is a book that most can enjoy.

Pretty fun, but not great

I enjoyed this book overall. The narration was solid through out. My biggest complaint is that many of the stories feature the Yuatja has a manageable threat and that does not meet with my expectations of how I think they should be portrayed.

GREAT short stories!

I like this format because you aren't cornered into one Predator Story-however great. Some were better than others, I loved the different timelines and how the authors wove actual historical figures and dates into the Predator mythos. While a 'continuation' of the Rage war, and a few of the stories MAY BE within that 'timeline' it isn't and that isn't a bad thing at all.

I really liked how the Buffalo Soldiers were given their due as the finest American Cavalry force EVER. I'd like more stories from the Predator POV as those moments were very informative into the Predator culture.

These novels have spurred ME to write my own Predator fiction.

so much fun to listen to

Every short story is fantastically creative. It is done very well! I fully recommend it to any fan of the film who wants cheesy escapism.

Surprising!!!!!

I didn’t think I’d like this after first listening to it until I realised the stories were Predator encounters with humans throughout time and then each story made sense, so to speak, and then very enjoyable. The narrators are brilliant. I could happily listen to a lot more of this kind of aAudible book. Thanks!

Decent read.

Enjoyed the first 15 of 17 chapters.
Every chapter has a different narrator and most are good but the final two chapters narrators were irritating.
