 My Review

I’ve watched a lot of movies and read a lot of books about the Loch Ness Monster and couldn’t wait to see how Hunter spun this legend.

Your thrown right into the thick of things from the first chapter. Poor twins, Austin and Natalie, witness the horrific attack and death of their parents by a creature risen from the depths of Loch Ness. Some twenty years later the twins set out to destroy the creature. Little do they know it’s not just one beast that swims the depths, waiting for hapless victims to feed upon. The legend is real. It wants revenge. And it has the numbers to tip the scale in its favor.

I love the water. I love the smell, the sound of the waves lapping at the shore, the feel of weightlessness while swimming. What I don’t love is what lives in it. The slimy weeds that brush against your body. The darting shadows that you can’t quite make out. The things that shift under the sand when you step on it. It all creeps me out. And that was before I watched Jaws. I no longer swim in the ocean or lakes. I have a pool.

This story has tons of atmosphere and great visual writing. I’ve never been to the Loch, but I could easily see it. And I could imagine the ripples on it’s surface as something large swims below.

And as per the norm, the author doesn’t spare any of his characters. This worried me since I became quite fond of a few of them, so don’t get too attached. It is a monster story after all. Many will become bloody bits of chum.

I knew Hunter would give us a Nessie like no other. I’d love to see this as a movie. To see what the author describes.

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time before you starting reading this book. Hunter wastes little time getting to the meat of his story. It’s all out mayhem once it begins and a bumpy ride to the end.

Synopsis

Deep in the murky waters of Loch Ness, the creature known as Nessie has returned. Twins Natalie and Austin McQueen watched in horror as their parents were devoured by the world’s most infamous lake monster. Two decades later, it’s their turn to hunt the legend. But what lurks in the Loch is not what they expected. Nessie is devouring everything in and around the Loch, and it’s not alone. Hell has come to the Scottish Highlands. In a fierce battle between man and monster, the world may never be the same.

  1. My kind of book. I want….sherry @ fundinmental

  2. My kind of book, Laura, as you know I love sea monsters of all kinds. I’ve heard a lot about Hunter Shea so I guess I need to check out his books. You know 23 years ago when I first wrote what is now Dinosaur Lake I had wanted to call it the American Loch Ness Monster (no joke) but the publisher back then wanted to call it Predator. Ech. Years later when I published it myself I simply called it Dinosaur Lake so I could make a series out of it. I love the Loch Ness legends so this book is now on my reading list. Thanks Laura.

      I’m glad you went with Dinosaur Lake for the title. It’s perfect. And I love your series, Kathryn!

  3. Greg Hill says:

    LOVE that cover for Loch Ness Revenge. I need some Nessie!!!

  4. This is the one Hunter Shea that I wasn’t a great fan of out of the ones I’ve read so far. I really disliked the brother and sister. Kind of put me off the sequel! I’ve liked the rest of his books though.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      You probably know I enjoy character driven stories. What’s odd is I don’t always like them but still enjoy the story. Monster food, right. LOL

  5. All these great Hunter Shea books I haven’t got to read yet!!! :)

  6. I have been enamored by Nessie since childhood. I should check this one out. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)
