📕My Review

An enjoyable read with well-developed and (some) likeable characters. However, I really do think this book should have been 100 pages shorter due to its repetitive nature. There's only so many times the reader needs to hear 'I think we should kill the dinosaur due to the danger it poses to humanity' before it becomes a bit of a drag. Every thought, decision and action was churned over so many times! Don't think I'll bother with the remainder of the series due to this.

📗The Blurb

Ex-cop Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for eight years and he likes his park and his life the way it’s been. Safe. Tranquil. Predictable. But he’s about to be tested in so many ways. First the earthquakes begin…people begin to go missing…then there’s some mysterious water creature that’s taken up residence in the caves below Crater Lake and it’s not only growing in size, it’s aggressive and cunning…and very hungry.

And it’s decided it likes human beings. To eat.

And it can come up onto land.

So Henry, with the help of his wife, Ann; a young paleontologist named Justin; and a band of brave men must not only protect his park and his people from the monster but somehow find where it lives and destroy it…before it can kill again.
