THE BEAST OF BRENTON WOODS by Jackson R. Thomas
Publisher: Alien Agenda Publishing
Publication Date: June 19, 2018
The White Wolf, the Beast of Brenton Woods, a legendary creature said to walk like a man. When the full moon rises, it will feast.
Jackson R. Thomas gets things going in a hurry. There's tons of blood, gore, and mayhem. Flesh is ripped and torn apart. Blood pours from the pages. The werewolf hasn't been seen for years. Over time, the creature is becomes a local legend, mere folklore. All that changes for the residents of Coopers Mills.
Thomas gets things going in the first chapter, folks! I'm talking the first couple of pages. The ferocious beast is hell-bent on revenge. The hulking beast is bloodthirsty and it will stop at nothing, so protect your neck. As the body count starts to rise, the hunter becomes the hunted.
There is plenty of silver bullet action for all to enjoy. THE BEAST OF BRENTON WOODS is very much a classic werewolf story. There is a lot of characters in this book. I was invested in Ben and Deputy Kathy Wilcox, but I didn't care what happened to the rest of the characters. I just wanted the werewolf to mutilate their bodies. The story line is smooth and I like how the author left things open for a sequel. I would very much like to revisit Coopers Mills. Hell, I would totally live in Coopers Mills.
If you like werewolves, then this book is for you. THE BEAST OF BRENTON WOODS is a solid debut. I can't wait to read Thomas' future work.
