Publisher's Summary

"Jonathan Janz does several things immaculately well in Savage Species, primarily crafting high-octane action sequences and creating antagonists that you can easily hate in the span of only a few short paragraphs.... Overall, Savage Species delivered the goods." (High Fever Books)

Jesse thinks he’s caught a break when he, Emma (the girl of his dreams), and her friend are assigned by their newspaper to cover the opening weekend of a sprawling new state park. But the construction of the park has stirred an evil that has lain dormant for nearly a hundred years, and the three young people - as well as every man, woman, and child unlucky enough to be attending the Algonquin Falls grand opening - are about to encounter the most horrific creatures to ever walk the earth.

Not what I expected

I bought this book because I believed it was a direct follow on from the author’s other book “The Children of the Dark”....

It had basically nothing to do with the first book, and honestly was written in such a different style that I have a hard time believing it was written by the same author at all.

Children of the Dark had a slow build up, it was tension filled, the characters were likeable and believable. Even the nasty characters were fleshed out and given motivations for why they behaved the way that they did. The villain was really creepy and the scenes of violence with the creatures were realistic and exciting.

Savage Species pretty much starts off with lots of violence and bloodshed, so there is very little time to get to care about the characters before they are thrown into danger. Also the characters were mostly uninteresting or even outright unlikeable, I didn’t care what happened to any of them.

There was a fair bit of smut in this one... mentions of necrophilia, huge penises, and multiple creatures wanting to rape people. It was excessive and unpleasant, and completely unnecessary.

There was plenty of violence in this one, but after awhile it all just sort of blended together, lots of running and people die, then running to another place and more people dying.... I got to what I thought was almost the end and discovered I had 2.5 hours to go. I nearly didn’t make it to the end, I wasn’t that interested.

If you go into this expecting it to be in any way like Children of the Dark, you will be disappointed, as the two books are nothing alike. I haven’t read anything else by this author, and now I’m not sure if I ever will.
