Welcome to Polo Springs, a sleepy little town on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s a great place to live—if you don’t mind the hurricanes. Or the flooding. Or the unusual wildlife . . .
Maybe it’s the weather. But the whole town is overrun with the little green bastards this year. They’re causing a lot of damage. They’re eating everything in sight. And they’re just the babies . . .
The mayor wants to address the iguana problem. But when Hurricane Ramona slams the coast, the town has a bigger problem on their hands. Bigger iguanas. Bigger than a double-wide. Unleashed by the storm, this razor-toothed horde of prehistoric predators rises up from the depths—and descends on the town like retirees at an early bird special. Except humans are on the menu. And it’s all you can eat . . .
Raves for The Montauk Monster

Woo Hoo, another creature feature, Jurassic Florida by Hunter Shea. I love his horror stories and to see that fabulous cover and know there’s gonna be some munching going on makes me eager to begin. Humans: They’re what’s for dinner. And it’s all you can eat... With a start like that, I don’t think Hunter Shea can go wrong. If you could see me now, all you would see is my teeth, because my smile is so wide…. So…let’s travel to sunny Florida, my neck of the woods. I see a lot of lizards hanging around, but nothing like these blood thirst buggers. There are lizards galore, but,more than that, is the hurricane heading their way. Sinkholes, everyone in Florida know what sinkholes are, but these are something else entirely. It’s hard to write a review without giving things away, so I’ll just say this…. Hunter Shea can sure spin a wicked tale. In Jurassic Florida, he starts out slow, feeding me a little at a time…Until the storm hits and all h*** breaks loose. I must warn you not to get attached to any of the characters. It’s hard to say who or how many will survive, because Hunter Shea is not afraid to kill them off in a savage and brutal way. I must be sick because I can’t help but laugh as I picture the events unfold like a movie in my mind. I love all the blood curdling gnoshing going on and revel in their misery. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Jurassic Florida by Hunter Shea.

Jurassic, Florida Hunter Shea: One Size Eats All #1 Hunter Shea Lyrical Press/Kensington, June 2018 ISBN 978-1-5161-0793-3 Ebook LOL, I’m still chuckling over this book and I have only myself to blame for not having indulged in Hunter Shea‘s work before. Polo Springs, Florida, is a quiet little place but people are starting to notice that the lizard population, specifically small iguanas, seems to be popping up everywhere. Not just popping up—slithering and scampering and the little beasts apparently have lost all fear. Not so the humans in this town, folks like Frank who’s running from the mob and Ann Hickok, the very unlikely mayor who’s only 18 years old. Everyone in Polo Springs has stepped into their own Godzilla movie and the future’s looking very, very dim. Polo Springs is about to get a rude awakening and they’ll wish they had those little iguanas back. In scenes that are alternately grisly and scream-inducing but also high camp, we learn the answer to the question: can anyone save this town from the invasion of giant people-eating critters?

Hunter Shea delivers hugely enjoyable horror with a smile on its face. Mind you, with iguanas this size, they would eat that smile right off and come back for seconds. Polo Springs, Florida is suddenly invaded by an outpouring of lizards. At first, the rather sweet kind - the sort that come and visit you on your veranda. No harm to anyone except we are not talking about the odd one or two, we are talking invasion proportions and the problem is these are only babies. When their much bigger - and meaner - relatives start to appear...let's say you had better know how to run. Fast. This was a great fun read and the first in a trilogy, I believe, so I'm already looking forward to what Hunter Shea serves up next.

It’s only some little iguana’s. How bad can it be? Lots. These guys are emerging in record numbers and they aren’t afraid of us. What if there are larger ones? There are. Of course there are. It’s a Hunter Shea book, after all. The poor little Florida town and it’s inhabitants are reduced to rubble and red smears on the ground once these monsters tear forth from underground. It’s all stompin, rompin, bloody good fun. Just look at the terrific cover and you get the idea. We’re introduced to the characters. Come to connect with some of them. But, wait for it. Hunter is known for killing off his character’s and these iguana’s need to eat, a lot. So don’t get too attached. The only niggle I had was the ending felt rushed. The carnage ended so quickly. Would have liked a bit more about it. The first in a new creature series from Hunter and I can’t wait to see what he brings us next.

I decided to read this book without reading the description. All I had to see was Hunter Shea's name. I can't help it - I have liked everything I've read by him. Polo Springs, Florida, is a quiet town with people who generally keep to themselves. Problem is, they are having an infestation problem. Only instead of rats or roaches or termites, the problem is lizards - those cute little lizards that seem to run rampant all over the southeast US. However these lizards are coming out in droves, enough to relocate gardens, sidewalks, and lawns. And while Ann, Polo Springs' 18 year-old mayor, has contacted an expert to help, there's a hurricane a-coming so everything is on hold. The so-called expert does have one disturbing piece of information. He believes these lizards are all babies, which begs the question: where are the parents and how many are there? Then Hurricane Ramona hits much harder than predicted, but that is the least of their worries. The real question and worry is just how big can an iguana grow...? I knew I was going to enjoy a book whose description starts off: "FLORIDA. IT’S WHERE YOU GO TO DIE." The characters were varied, the plot action-packed, and the gore abundant. Imagine - those cute little lizards suddenly growing to epic proportions and attacking! Another delightful creature read.

Anyone who has ever lived in Florida knows that there are a lot of cute little lizards all over the place. Ann is the eighteen year old mayor of Polo Springs, Florida. Complaints are coming in about the streets having large holes in them and people are falling and getting hurt. Only a few have seen hundreds of iguanas coming out of those holes. The little ones are everywhere. A hurricane is getting ready to hit the town and everyone is in their houses waiting out the storm. Something other than the hurricane is causing houses to be destroyed. It's like Jurassic Park has come alive with giant iguanas big enough to smash cars. Ann knows the only way to get rid of them is to fight. Guns are not enough but getting the survivors together is the only option. I love anything to do with dinosaurs, giant Iguanas or anything that might eat you. This book is well written and fun. I recommend this for any monster lovers out there. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.
