Inhaltsangabe zu „The Jersey Devil“ von Hunter Shea

“Old school horror.” —Jonathan Maberry THE LEGEND LIVES Everyone knows the legend of the Jersey Devil. Some believe it is an abomination of nature, a hybrid winged beast from hell that stalks the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey searching for prey. Others believe it is a hoax, a campfire story designed to scare children. But one man knows the truth... THE DEVIL AWAKES Sixty years ago, Boompa Willet came face to face with the Devil—and lived to tell the tale. Now, the creature’s stomping grounds are alive once again with strange sightings, disappearances, and worse. After all these years, Boompa must return to the Barrens, not to prove the legend is real but to wipe it off the face of the earth... THE BEAST MUST DIE It’ll take more than just courage to defeat the Devil. It will take four generations of the Willet clan, a lifetime of survivalist training, and all the firepower they can carry. But timing is critical. A summer music festival has attracted crowds of teenagers. The woods are filled with tender young prey. But this time, the Devil is not alone. The evil has grown into an unholy horde of mutant monstrosities. And hell has come home to New Jersey... “Shea delivers a tense and intriguing work of escalating tension splattered with a clever, extensive cast of bystanders turned victims…An otherwise excellent, tightly delivered plot…Fans of cryptid creatures are likely to revel in this love letter to a legendary menace.”– Publishers Weekly   Raves for The Montauk Monster “A lot of splattery fun.”—Publishers Weekly “Frightening, gripping.”—Night Owl Reviews

    The Jersey Devil


    25. August 2016 um 11:53

    This was a highly entertaining B-style monster story, and being my first book featuring the legendary Jersey Devil, it also provided an interesting kind of history lesson for me.The first half was mainly a series of blood-filled encounters with the beasts. Several characters where thoroughly introduced only to be ripped apart by the devils shortly after. Honestly, I could have done with several less. Interwoven with these little episodes was the introduction of the main characters, their relation to the Jersey Devil and each other and their motivation to go on a final hunt.The second half focused on that battle between the family and the Jersey Devil which finally got me hooked with its fast-paced action. While I was not satisfied with all of the explanations given at the end, I was fascinated by the complex legend of the Jersey Devil.After a somewhat slow start, the story turned into a very fast and fun creature feature.(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
