Curse of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler is book #2 in a series of at least 3 volumes. It follows Night of the Chupacabra, and will be followed in 2014 by Legend of the Chupacabra. Although these books can be read as stand-alone tales, they make much more sense if read sequentially. In Curse of the Chupacabra, we pick up pretty close to where Night of the Chupacabra ended. Once again, we find a pair of young women trying hard to get their lives back to some semblance of normalcy, while eluding the heinously deadly Chupacabra. However, this time young Jessie is convinced it is her own father, Drake, who is now possessed by the evil spirit that is the Chupacabra. Right or wrong, she is convinced the Chupacabra will never harm her, because her father would not allow it to do so. By train, coach, Conestoga wagon, horseback, and on foot, Suzanne and Jessie continue their attempt to reach San Francisco, pursuing the life of ease they imagine awaits them there. Along the entire way, the Chupacabra keeps popping up to divert their attention from their quest.

Michael Hebler has once again used his genius to fabricate an exciting tale of monsters in the Old West. Combining – with great success – the genres of Horror, Paranormal, Suspense, and Westerns, Michael has created another fine tale to hook fans of any of the genres mentioned above. Just like the Chupacabra himself, Michael’s stories grab hold of you and don’t let go. I feel compelled to recommend that you read Night of the Chupacabra, followed by Curse of the Chupacabra. I also suggest you keep your eyes open for Legend of the Chupacabra; it, too, is bound to be a winner.
