Book Review: The Winter Creek Beast


Book Review

It’s not too unusual for a hiker to go missing in the woods around Winter Creek, but when a local celebrity famous for his big game hunting turns up dead, the apparent victim of a bear attack, Sheriff Jay Lightfeather can’t help but wonder if there is something more going on. When he visits his grandfather for advice he starts to wonder if the legends of his people might just be true.

THE GOOD

This novella is a sharp and quickly paced thriller revolving around a popular pair of legends that keeps the reader on the edge of his seat. It is never easy to make characters stand out in a novella, but the author manages to make the main character stand out in even the short number of pages in this book. The monster is vicious and deserving of place in the pantheon of campfire ghost stories.

THE BAD

The only thing I can complain about with this story is that it is not long enough. I would love to see this redone, drawn out, and made into a full blown novel that kept me reading for days rather than hours.

THE TAKEAWAY

Its a good read for a lazy weekend afternoon, but for the $1.99 price point I would like to see it a little longer. I would definitely recommend picking it up, because you just can’t go wrong with anything written by C. P. Bialois.
