    A HELPFUL REVIEW WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO FIND!!

    Why aren't any of these comments about the book? Good thing they offer free samples, because this is ridiculous. If you're going to post on here, maybe try being helpful to people who may actually WANT to READ the book.

    *My Review: So far, I've only read what was offered in the free sample, which I believe were the first 2-3 chapters, and the "mystery creature" along with what seem so far to be compelling characters convinced me to buy it. I'm in to Cryptozoology, so anything with a creepy vibe and a possible "monster" involved really catches my attention, and, as long as it doesn't turn out stupid/cheesy/totally far-fetched, usually holds my attention until the end. I'm looking forward to a great read, based on how the book began. I'll post again when I finish it :)

    Hope ^THIS^ was actually HELPFUL to some SERIOUS readers.

    TO ALL

    Killing is real. Some people murder just for fun. Apparently, that's what you do. Would you kill just for fun in real life? IF YOU WOULDNT DO IT IN REAL LIFE, THEN YOU SHOULDNT DO IT ONLINE!
