Loving Michael Hebler’s Chupacabra series so much, I was thrilled to grab a copy of Rattlesnake.  Always ready for something different from this author.

My Review

One twist after another in this short tale of a man in search of his son.

Right from the beginning, I knew something wasn’t right. Perhaps because I’ve read several books by this author, I was forewarned.

A man and a boy around a campfire, in the night. Doesn’t sound so bad. Until the man starts to threaten the lad, demanding to know where his son is, what he’s done with him. Twist number one.

As you learn about earlier events, twist number two occurs.

And when you reach the end, the final twist.

Coming in at last than 20 pages, it sure packs a wallop.

The cover art is perfect. Such a show and tell about this dark little story. You’ll see when you read it.

4 Stars



After narrowly escaping a town that has gone mysteriously mad, a man threatens a boy’s life to get the truth out of him about his missing son.

      It’s a good one, Stormi. I love his chupacabra books and this has a dark theme too.

  3. atothewr says:

    This was a good one. Read it a bit ago.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I do enjoy thes short bites of horror. Can’t read enough of them, as you know!

  4. Thank you all for the kind words, but I had to jump in to add a recommendation to read Anthony Renfro’s “A Zombie Christmas.” I read It during the holidays last year. What a fun read.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I love Anthony’s stories too, Michael. Just finished Zombie Christmas 2 and getting ready to read another new one he’s working on. He’s got a lot more coming.
      This was a good one, Michael. You know I love your chup books,and I’m excited to read your other stories too:)

  5. If this book is anything like the cover, I’ll have to pass. I’m deathly afraid of snakes of all kinds. My father used to tell me they were afraid of me and unlikely to bite and I always told him it was the heart attack that would kill me, not the snake. Glad you enjoyed it though.
