Review of Loch Ness Revenge by Hunter Shea

November 5, 2016

 

Deeper in lore than in water, the Loch Ness Monster, Nessie, is a well of possibilities when it comes to stories. Here is Nessie living and hungry, but this time she is not alone.

Revenge is the special on the menu, family style with a side of German sausage. Specifically, a sister and brother, plus a man named Henrik, and eventually a dude named Ray as well, demand retribution for lives taken. The lake monster took the parents of the siblings constrictor-style a lifetime earlier and since then, Natalie has camped out, searching, waiting.

Nature shifts and suddenly, Nessie isn’t so far. More importantly, Nessie isn’t alone. The aquatic carnivores prove just cause behind their mystery, smart, crafty and wily.

Loch Ness Revenge rolls toward the second third fairly quietly. The volume rockets right there and the weaponry really comes out as the war is on. Hunter Shea offers up a roaring torrent of firepower and grey skies. Short, funny at times, and befittingly paced, this one plays out aside from predictability and the typical character traits.

Eye-roll free zone! 

Shea provides all the necessary forethought to avoid the pulpy parachute-under-the-seat typical of the flavor while staking space on a pulpy shore.

Action-packed and entertaining throughout. Open for a sequel, of sorts.
