Overview

Shredding monsters is his stock and trade. He sniffs them out, tracks them down, and corners them. End of story. But when the tables are turned, expect the unexpected.  .  .

Knowing his enemy is a rule Deacon Chalk swears by. But he's never seen anything like whatever is leaving the Atlanta Zoo's most dangerous predators bloodless, skinned, and hanging high in treetops. And he's only got till sunrise to keep it from turning the entire city into a slaughterhouse. Now Deacon is in zoo lockdown with a handful of staffers to save. His zookeeper backup has more guts than monster-hunting experience. And the only chance Deacon has to run this thing to unholy ground is to risk unleashing his darkest, most uncontrollable instincts.  .  .

Deacon Chalk Kicks Butt Something is killing animals at the Atlanta Zoo. Since the bodies have been torn apart in a very strange way Detective John Longyard knows this case is going in the ‘Weird Stuff’ file, so he calls the local Occult Bounty Hunter, Deacon Chalk to come do his thing. Deacon and his team decide it could be several nasty things, so the only way to find out and kill it is to stay the night in the zoo. Things get just a little weird after nightfall. This short story is a quick read. Fast-paced, smooth-flowing with an interesting plot and characters, you’ll wish there was more to read. Don’t worry. You can go on and read the full length novel 'Blood and Bullets' then upcoming in a few weeks is another short 'Spider’s Lullaby' before another full-length novel 'Blood and Silver' comes out August 1st. It looks like Deacon Chalk will be around for awhile and for that I’m glad.

Deacon Chalk is one hell of a hero - both wounded and warrior. Chalk is hunter, killing those thing nasty things that go bump in the night (and then some). One hell of a fun a read.

I had the awesome chance to meet, James at Dragon Con last year and hear him talk about his upcoming series of, Deacon Chalk, and let me tell you this short store did not dissapoint me at all. I won't say much to avoid spoiling what the Thing at the Zoo is, but it also had an awesome twist to it, you got to read this if you are a fan of this type of work. Deacon is one badass monster hunter and I can't wait for Blood and Bullets to come out. Really looking forward to all of the books, James!

When I first started this series I wasn't so sure I liked it at first. But as I finished the first chapter I realized I was hooked. These are all great books by this author and since I happen to be a person who had can read several books at a time, it helped me learn more about the characters and my imagination was running wild. This is a great series with this book a nice addition. Enjoy them and be prepared to be surprised at some of the things that happen.

As with the other books in this series, all I can really say is love. It is like an awesome movie, or TV show, I just can't get enough.
