...Horror and action readers would like it, as should suspense readers or anyone looking for a fast, thrilling, and occasionally edge-of-your-seat read. ...

When he is sent off to his uncle’s in Wisconsin for the summer, city-dweller Corbett thinks he’s in for a miserable time with no TV or internet, stuck fishing on the lake. An encounter with a bear and a dead beaver does nothing to change his view. But when prey fish start disappearing in the lake, and a seven-year-old girl is attacked, a record-breaking muskie is suspected of living in the lake. While the townsfolk debate how to profit from the record breaking fish, Corbett and his new friend Pike decide to go and catch it.

A mixture of horror and action in the style of Jaws, this small town adventure is a thrilling read. Characters who rapidly develop beyond initial impressions, slickly-written action scenes and genuine suspense all combine to produce a very good read.

Despite the age of the protagonists, this is probably not suitable for children, although teenagers should enjoy it. Horror and action readers would like it, as should suspense readers or anyone looking for a fast, thrilling, and occasionally edge-of-your-seat read.

  • Requiem's Song
    This isn't dark fantasy, it is grimdark fantasy. Fantasy fans should read this, but so should horror, goth, and there's even something here for action readers.
  • Avis Blackthorn is not an evil wizard
    Children and readers of the fantasy genre might well enjoy it.
  • Max, the boy who didn't believe in Santa Claus
    Five stars for this lovely Christmas tale with a laugh-out-loud - and heartwarming - ending. Good for those that believe in Santa and those that don't - and the parents will like it too!

This was that rare thing: a children's book with enough tension and suspense to keep me reading to the end. Even though the casualties are not fatalities, the injuries to the attack victims are sufficient to justify the kind of reaction the local authorities put in place, and there's genuine suspense when people enter the water.
