Jurassic Park Adventures: Prey is the second installment of the Jurassic Park Adventures book series by Scott Ciencin.
Prey reveals that Alan Grant has become part of a U.N. project to protect the dinosaurs of Isla Sorna. He is forced to stay on the island coordinating a crew of scientists and other experts. It is decided to return balance to the dinosaur ecosystem by relocating some predators to other parts of the island. Eric Kirby blackmails Alan 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 at the island.
Meanwhile, a group of teenagers, led by 18-year-old Simon Tunney, lands on Isla Sorna and attempts to film a movie about the island to 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.
Eric tries to convince them to go to Grant's headquarters but Simon refuses, fearing that Grant will confiscate his footage. Simon 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 three 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.
