JURASSIC FLORIDA by Hunter Shea
'The Hunter Shea Matinee' keeps rolling on at full steam. His creature feature romps deliver on all fronts. JURASSIC FLORIDA is one of Hunter Shea's best yet. Not only does it deliver the thrills, it delivers the chills. Hunter Shea has a knack for cryptids and obscure creatures. He also creates some pretty memorable characters. This isn't the first time Hunter Shea has taken us to Florida, and I'm sure this will not be the last.
Little green Iguanas overrun the small town of Polo Springs. It's the ideal Florida town. The Iguanas start causing damage. They eat everything in sight, but they are only the babies. With Hurricane Ramona slamming the coast, bigger Iguanas rise from the depths and show up on the scene in Polo Springs.
These giant Iguanas are hungry for human flesh. Utter terror and destruction befall the town and its residents. This is old school horror. Blood and guts fill these pages. There's just too much shit, not enough fan. The residents must find a way out of Polo Springs. People are dying in the streets. The giant Iguanas are virtually unstoppable.
It is evident Hunter Shea gets the small town tropes. The characters all have pivotal roles to play, whether it is getting killed by giant Iguanas or driving the narrative. JURASSIC FLORIDA is fast-paced and it will knock your sandals off. If you like reading on your summer vacation, then I suggest taking this one with you. Hell... take all of Hunter Shea's books with you. They're all fun and this one is no different.
