Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the galley of this bookSO This book It was kinda campy and a fun rompbut then it feels like there are a couple chapters missing at the end The ending reveals happen so abruptly it's jarring especially after the slower meandering pace of the story prior I don't think it sets up the conceit of the story super well and it doesn't give a ton of background information which I felt lacking The characters feel a bit flat too but that's my own personal gripeThe writing is incredible but if you don't have a background in biologyanthropologypossibly archaeology you may want to have a dictionary handy because this book is riddled with science jargon and basically none of it is explained For the pace of the first 80% of the book to be so slow the last 20% careens at breakneck speed and the whole tone of the book shifts along with it It feels a little like I read two totally different books but with similar plot linesIt's a short fun read and I wouldn't discourage you from reading it I just felt a bit disappointed overall by it

BRILLIANTindeed an Creature X ePUB #180 excellent book Maureen Jennings author of THE MURDOCH MYSTERY SERIES A fun engaging read written with lots of informed insider insight on a fascinating field and with some neat cameos from the real world of sasuatch research and investigation Dr Darren Naish zoologist and author based at the University of South Hampton UK With Roanoke Ridge JJ Dupuis gives us a mystery centering around that primal human need to believe that something is. ROANOKE RIDGE by JJ Dupuis is the first book in the new Creature X Mystery series It is also my first book by this author Bigfoot researcher Professor Berton Sorel is missing near Roanoke Ridge Oregon Laura Reagan and her friend Saad Javed arrive to help find him She is a former student of his a sceptic and currently the owner of a popular science based website called Science Is Awesome Science IA The story occurs just before and during the annual Roanoke Valley Bigfoot Festival The plot blends crime and cryptozoology into a contemporary setting It was interesting and had a mystery but the pace seemed slow to me The characters did not seem fully developed and three dimensional However their motivations seemed believable and there was an interesting array of secondary characters With a suspicious death a wave of Bigfoot sightings and the missing professor I was expecting suspense and a faster pace While the plot twists were not unexpected it was still an entertaining read Additionally the author did a great job of giving a clear sense of time and place through vivid descriptions that were not overdone The author’s interest in the natural world came through clearly as wellOverall this was an enjoyable book with a satisfying ending Thanks to Dundurn Press and JJ Dupuis for a complimentary ARC of this novel via NetGalley and the opportunity to provide an honest review Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way

Roanoke Ridge Creature X Mysteries #1Out there And here that something is of course a seven foot tall stinking man ape The book is mischievous zany and fast Roanoke Ridge PDFEPUBpaced and it skewers our pop culture lust the whole way through Jeff Parker author of WHERE BEARS ROAM THE STREETS and OVENMAN When bigfoot researcher Professor Berton Sorel goes missing in the temperate rainforest of Roanoke Ridge Oregon help is summoned in the form of his former star pupil Laura Reagan online science populist and avowed. Edited as review is now live on Kendall ReviewsThanks to Netgalley Dundurn and the author for sending this my way When I saw it announced I was excited but wasn’t that confident I’d get approved so thank youWhy was I excited specifically you may ask My love of Bigfoot based thrillers and horrors Since my childhood all things cryptozoology have caught my interest and Bigfoot most of all Maybe it was because I grew up in British Columbia and there had been sightings a few hours from my house or maybe it was the thrill of the idea that a massive creature could still be living in the trees had me intriguedThe book itself is pretty straight forward Laura has a science website Her dad believed in Bigfoot and while she spent many summers in the Roanoke area she herself is a sceptic Because as I mentioned before she has a science website and believes in scienceA Professor who was like a grandfather to her has now been reported missing in the area so Laura gets a call to head there and help with the searchWhat I liked as with most Bigfoot books I liked the tension and excitement of the possibility of them discovering BigfootWhat I didn’t like truthfully a fair bit The pace is glacial at times offering up very minor bits but stretching them out At the beginning we are treated to an author’s note which states they are a sceptic and that should be your mindset going in We are treated to a science lecture with detailed statistics at the start – which I get it did play well with a potential shift in Bigfoot habitat’s – but it was put in there purely to stereotype all Bigfoot searchers as science disbelievers climate change deniers and rednecks who like to shoot guns While each chapter starts with a real uote from various Bigfoot researchers and newspapers most of the characters appear to be direct parodiescaricatures of real people – we get the Loren Coleman twin opening up the Bigfoot fesitival we get the Todd Standing hoaxer twin there are the characters that don’t matter who are trying to be the Finding Bigfoot crew and even the Science is Awesome website felt like a take on the site I Fing Love ScienceThe ending was rushed and frustrating and just left me fuming that could have been added in It felt like a Hardy Boys Lite releaseWhy you should buy it if you love Bigfoot or creature features and want a single sitting read this could be right up your alley Be warned though as I mentioned – the author is a sceptic – which means this book freuently makes sure that we understand that no rational mind can believe in BigfootDoes it exist Who knows I sure hope so But this book doesn’t add much to that side of the argument
