Jurassic Park Adventures: Prey is the second installment of the Jurassic Park Adventures book series by Scott Ciencin.

Presmuably based on early ideas[citation needed] for Jurassic Park III, the book tells the story of a group of teenagers that end up stranded on isla Sorna while Alan Grant and Eric Kirby are back.

Plot summary[edit]

Prey reveals that Alan Grant has become part of a UN project to protect the Dinosaurs of Isla Sorna. He is forced to stay in the island coordinating a crew of scientists and other experts, and is decided to return balance to the dinosaur ecosystem by relocating some predators to other parts of the island. In this story, Eric Kirby blackmails Alan Grant so that he will let him go to the island. Alan agrees, but tricks Eric taking him during Christmas time where there are no operations going on in the island.

Meanwhile, a group of teenagers led by 18 year old Simon Tunney lands in the island and try to film a movie about the island, so that they will become celebrities. Simon is obsessed with becoming a rich celebrity, even if that means to endanger his peers.

Upon realizing this, Grant and his team go to the jungle and try to find them, while Eric escapes the headquarters and finds them himself.

The teenagers then provoke a herd of Triceratops, and they attack them, but Eric saves them by mimicking a Velociraptor's call for help.

Eric tries to convince them to go to Grant's headquarters but Simon refuses fearing that Grant will confiscate his footage, and continues his trip. Angered, Eric follows, knowing that they are getting in the territory of large predators.

Later, both Grant's and Simon's teams are attacked by 3 Carnotaurus. Grant realizes that the leader of the pack has a personal vendetta against him and runs away from the group to save the others.

But the Carnotaurus keep chasing the teenagers and almost devours Simon's little brother. Eric saves the group in the nick of time and the Carnotaurus are startled by Grant's full team. With recorded video evidence of his behavior, Simon is now trapped and is taken to prison while Grant praises Eric's braveness and allows him to become a temporal member of his team.
