Some monsters are real.
Miles away from the hectic city, Reed and Rebecca hike into the beautiful Northwester woods. They are surrounded by gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and hundreds of acres of unspoiled wilderness.
During their first night camping, an unearthly wail pierces the calm of the forest. Then something emerges from the dense woods. Everything that follows is a blur to Reedexcept the unforgettable image of a huge creature carrying his wife into the darkness.
Enter into deep wilderness where the rules of civilization no longer apply. A world where strange shadows lurk. Where creatures long attributed to overactive imaginations and nightmares are the hunters . . .and people are the hunted.
Tracy WickMonticello, UTAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Genuine science fiction!November 27, 2013Tracy WickMonticello, UTAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I grow tired of the sci-fi and fantasy genres being lumped together, being a lover of fiction written to reflect scientific theory. This book brings science theory to the front, between explaining how such a creature could (theoretically) exist, and creationist theory & how it is and can be proven using current knowledge & research.
I also enjoyed the humor of how Peretti wrote himself into the book. Can you guess which character is Peretti?
Jessica AllenAge: 18-24Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 52 starsNovember 12, 2013Jessica AllenAge: 18-24Gender: femalePlot: The idea for this plot was good, however, when put to practice, I don't think it was quite up to par. There were several twists that kept the book interesting, but when I had finished, I didn't feel satisfied. There were several stories converging to make the sum of the book, and I think there might have been just a little too much happening.
Characters: There was not enough depth to the characters in this story. The first couple chapters give a little insight to the history of Beck, but other than that, the characters lives are only revealed in small chunks of information if it became relevant to the plot.
Themes: Overcoming fear was the theme of this book, and while it was obvious, I don't think that it was integrated into the story enough. It was covered in the beginning, and then in the end, but through the middle of the story, the themed just, kind of, got lost and out crowded by the plot of the story.
Emotion: I did not find this story to have much emotion. There was a lot going on and it kept my mind busy but there wasn't emotion in the words.
Overall: I really like the way this book is written from so many different perspectives. It gives a much deeper understanding of what is going on. Even as you read all of the perspectives, the story is still written fluidly so that you don't get lost or confused. I also really liked that after each chapter, there was a map to show where things where happening.
