As I enter the third book in the series, Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler, I have been reading them one after another, I become more fond of Jessie and her tenacity. She had a sordid upbringing, is self reliant, untrusting. Life is not what she would have chosen, but she would make the best of it. If she ever became your friend, it would be for life. I couldn’t understand her felling of dread and being stalked. After all, the chupacabra was dead…isn’t it? What do you think? Hate and revenge are strong motivators, leaving some open to being duped and unleashing a horror never known before upon the white man. In this western world, we learn about man’s ability to be good and bad. Are they born that way or do circumstances dictate their actions? I love a book that makes me ponder deep questions. Suspense, twists and turns, pain and sorrow, but love and hope blossom from the most evil depredations. Sometimes subsequent books in the series don’t hold up, but, no worries. Each book has held more depth, more terror and more suspense than the last. I cannot stop reading, the suspense and sense of urgency driving me to the end…but wait…there’s one more book. YAY! OMG…NO…Michael, you are sheer evil. I had a feeling something had to happen, but, darn it! I sure didn’t see the ending coming and it was a fabulous surprise. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler.

Legend of the Chupacabra is a dark and twisted, yet very interesting look into the history of our favorite creature of the wild west. I have followed this creature through books one and two and each each book has hooked me a little bit more firmly on the claws of the creature. Book three finally clears up the mystery as to where the creature actually comes from and how it came about. The creature itself is scary enough, but the reasons behind the making of the creature are even more disturbing. It gives the entity of revenge a name and shape thus showing that the creature could be inside anyone, even the most peaceful of Indian tribes.  The story clears up questions left by books one and two and helps the reader find solace knowing what happened to their favorite characters from the previous books. There are new characters and twists to the story line introduced in this edition. The details in the book are meticulously researched and spun into the story to make it so much more believable and haunting. This book is not one to be read by the faint of heart or those who are easily scared by things that go bump in the night. The surprise ending was just that, a shock. I did not see it coming at all.  Mr. Hebler has spun a terrifying, but believable tale here that will leave you looking over your shoulder convinced you are seeing movement in the shadows. You will definitely think twice before you ever go down a dark alley again! I gave this book five stars. I reviewed this book at night and was afraid to give it any less because I am pretty sure there is something watching me as I write!

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler is the third story in Hebler’s excellent Chupacabra series, and it is a truly exceptional story. Once again we meet Suzanne and Jessie, who have managed to move forward with their lives in the wake of all they were faced with in the previous volume, Curse of the Chupacabra. Legend of the Chupacabra is as well-crafted as any best-seller on the market. Hebler has a remarkable talent for taking a blood-sucking, murderous and demonic entity, and giving it a justifiable reason for existing, as it rains vengeance upon a great many wicked and greedy men guilty of heinous crimes against humanity. This story follows the classic theme of “Good versus Evil”, but in this case the “Good” is plied through the expedient of the Chupacabra, on behalf of the innocent victims of their wicked and “Evil” human nemeses. Not all monsters walk on four legs. Legend of the Chupacabra is written like a novel that is based on a block-buster movie. Indeed, Hollywood would do well to take a long, hard look at Hebler’s series; with novel #4 already underway, they may be missing out on a potentially great movie series. Hebler’s Chupacabra is an entity never before seen in literature or film. Unlike its erstwhile namesake, the Goat-Sucker, Hebler’s Chupacabra will present a worthy challenge to cinematic special effects experts. Legend of the Chupacabra once again displays Hebler’s genius at its best. Fans of horror, fans of Westerns, fans of fantasy, and fans of just plain good writing will all enjoy reading Hebler’s Chupacabra tales. Don’t wait for the movie to come out… get your copies now, and you will be urging all your friends to do the same. Legend of the Chupacabra is a very entertaining story, in a very entertaining series.

In this third book in the Chupacabra series, you once again follow Suzanne and Jessie . It’s been six years since they killed the chupacabra and broke the curse. Or did they? Suzanne seems to be settling down in Portland, believing things will be better now. Jessie, on the other hand, is her own worst enemy. She’s as sassy and quick to fly off the handle as ever. Even though she works in a rough and tumble saloon, she’s still expected to cater to the customers and is often mistaken for something other than a server, and she makes the poor sap pay for that mistake, often painfully. The owner would like her to be more than a server, the bartender creeps her out with his puppy dog drooling, and a handsome young stranger sets her nerves on edge. He seems to enjoy it when she fights of the groping hands and off-color comments of the patrons. Just who is he? It isn’t noticeable at first, the men disappearing, because they’re strangers. But then some local men disappear too and this sets off Jessie’s radar. Could it be the chupacabra? Did they kill it? Is it another one? Or is it something else? The author excels at putting his characters in new and stranger situations. There are some new nasty characters to despise, which I always like, as they can be used as fodder for the chupacabra. But the chup isn’t selective, and likes his blood from good or evil people. Maturing his characters, having their personalities change after each new encounter with the chupacabra, is another area Michael excels at. Especially with Jessie, as she’s gone from a young girl to a young woman. He did leave her as feisty and fearless as before, allowing me to savor her victories, worry when she lands in tight spots, and hope she’ll finally let someone get close to her. Even the chupacabra is different, like it’s evolved, become even more evil and cunning. It likes to play with its food, and it’s always hungry. Which gives you some excellent scenes of bloody mayhem. I was attracted to this series because of the chupacabra. Curious about the legend, and of course, its bloody path through the book.. Then I became attached to the characters and, with each new book, I looked forward to seeing what new mystery the author put them in. What, besides the chupacabra, they had to deal with. It’s never dull, no stumbling through slow parts, as there aren’t any, and Legend of the Chupacabra leaves you hungry for more. Just like the chupacabra.I received this book for my honest review.
