Cowboy Werewolf Massacre

My Review

It seems like westerns are changing. Now there are lots of movies and books with a supernatural element to them.

This title says it all, Cowboy Werewolf Massacre.

Loved the beginning of this one. Some men are chasing a man. Or kind of a man. Yep, a werewolf.

He leaves a trail of ripped up bodies behind as he taunts the pursuers.

The author did some great character building in the beginning and I came to know them quickly. From watching so many movies I could easily picture the scenes and even put faces to some of them.

As the plot thickens, and yes, it does, more characters come into play, an important event is explained, and all hell breaks loose. Want to know what really happened the night Chicago burned?

You have werewolves and cowboys, good guys and bad guys, and some political maneuvering thrown in to add to the intrigue.

All in all a good read. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed. A lot was happening and it was over quickly.

Yet, I should keep in mind this is a short story and the author did give me a good ending. One that could lead to more in this tale. I hope so.

Synopsis

The year is 1871. A mysterious force stalks the Wild West, killing settlers and even the toughest outlaws. Soldier-turned-bandit Jack Stark is given a choice: Hunt down whatever’s out there, or face the noose. The chase will take him from dangerous mining towns and snowy wastelands to ancient caves that hold the most terrible secrets… and eventually into the middle of one of the biggest disasters in U.S. history. As Stark soon learns, it’s not just his life at stake: the country’s future rests on his ability to shoot fast and think faster.

Shark Station Nyet

Apex Predator Series

My Review

I read the first book, Salechii Park, and loved it so I knew this second book would be fun too.

The first thing I want to tell you is, relax, shut off the disbelief switch, and just take this story for what it is. Campy fun, outrageous scenes, and, oh yeah, gore. Sorry, but this is horror, not Sea World.

How else will you appreciate the weaponized sharks, or a giant squid, or bombs and saboteurs.

And how about taking a ride on a shark. Saddle up. Lopez does.

You could start this book like a movie. Here them yell, “Action!” And it begins and never stops. If someone isn’t being eaten, they are being shot at. The station is under attack and sinking. And waiting in the water is every kind of sea creature imaginable. All hungry. All with very big teeth. And all with their eyes on you.

Man oh man, I loved it!

      If you check out Carolyn’s first book, Salechii, it has a much better cover but this one does a good job of sharing the story inside. I couldn’t help thinking of Dr. Evil and Minime when they talked about the weaponized sharks. I kept him hearing him say, “I want a shark with Laserbeams!”LOL
      I like how the shark licked his chops after munching on poor Mr. Smiley!

  3. Awesome. Love both books and your reviews. :-)
