This book was definitely not what I expected at all. I had thought it would follow a typical Jersey Devil story but it ended up to be quite different.
The Jersey Devil has been quiet for awhile but is now active again in new and more threatening ways. One cursed family decides to put an end to the curse and creature once and for all.
The atmosphere and scenery are written so well that I felt like I was there camping in the Pines. I absolutely loved the character of Boompa but found the others to be less developed. That is fine in this case because the story is more an action thriller rather than a story about the characters themselves.
All in all, I enjoyed this book. Hunter Shea took the legend of the Jersey Devil and made it his own. If you decide to read this book be prepared for lots of blood and gore. This is the first book I have read by this author and am impressed enough to want to read more.
I received a copy of this book from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
