Publisher's Summary

Rick Yancey’s first gothic suspense tale, The Monstrumologist, earned him a prestigious Michael L. Printz Award. The second installment of this acclaimed series, Curse of the Wendigo, finds young Will Henry on the hunt for a supernatural beast plaguing New England in the late 1800s. Will and his mentor, the domineering Dr. Warthrop, are enlisted to help the doctor’s former fiancée. It seems her husband has been lost in the Canadian wilderness. And to make matters worse, there are reports that a Wendigo—a creature who gorges on human flesh—is on the loose.

A great book for fans of monster horror books

I was delightfully surprised how good this book was. The scenario is set up well and the author did his homework on Wendigos and you really feel the fear and paranoia that the characters go through. I really liked the two main characters of the story and cared what happened to them. I would recommend that you read the first book but it is not necessary but it does give you a background on the characters so that it is easier to follow.

excellence

This is Book 2 of the Monstrumologist Series. It is fantastic. The narration is superior to most audiobooks. The story perfectly continues the series, the characters mature and new characters do not disappoint. Although this series is a dark one and it has plenty of violence and gore, it is incredibly interesting and a lot of fun to listen to.

even better than the first book

the way the book is written can be confusing at some points, but is also enjoyable as it expresses the conflict of The emotions of of the characters and the Supernatural fear and terror that they experience. overall the story is more enjoyable than the first one as it focuses Less on just killing the monsters but more on understanding the monster and its background and how it hunts and how the hunter feels and how the hunted feels.

Unbelievably visualizing

With how the story is told it feels like I'm part of the action. Like I'm standing side by side with Warthrop and Will, I love all the monsters told in this series and look forward to even more gory monsters and their riddles to be told!

A solid story

Where does The Curse of Wendigo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dr. Warthrop. He is dedicated to his craft.

What does Steven Boyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I may have rushed through it trying to get to the next moment.

Curses!!

I absolutely love Rick Yancey's books. Once I open the cover I can stop reading or listening. Steven Boyer brings every person to life.
