Publisher's Summary

Dr. Erin Harris may be a scientist, but she has an unscientific obsession: to find a living Varanus priscus. Cryptozoologists call it the Devil dragon. This giant Australian reptile went extinct some 12,000 years ago but like Bigfoot or Nessie, there are occasional sightings. Spurred by a credible witness, Erin cobbles together an expedition party consisting of herself, the witness, and his deer-hunting neighbors. They travel into the unexplored heart of a remote national park.

Erin, believing the Devil dragon to be a larger version of the Komodo, is confident she can outwit a specimen. However, the terrifying monster that lumbers out of the bush is a savage and unpredictable predator the size of a campervan. To escape, Erin must transform herself from genteel university lecturer to hardcore survivalist.

Good Syfy for Your Ears

This book isn't deep or terribly frightening but it will hold your attention. It's a closer to a 3.5 over all. It would have been a solid 4.5 except, in my opinion, the main character is an idiot. You'll have to listen to decide for yourself but I found her incredibly annoying. Still I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to know how/if she would finally die. Also, I don't know if there is a sequel planned but I hope so just because of how this story ends.

I couldn't agree more with the reader's comments

I do want to know what happens but I can't stand the main character. She is so shallow and self serving and annoying.
