All hell breaks loose when two sets of cryptid hunters cross paths in the exciting science fiction novel, The Devil of Misty Lake: Lorestalker Book 5 by J.P. Barnett. Abby witnesses her fiancé killed by a monster while camping at Misty Lake. The horror of his death drastically alters her life, and her career focus takes a sharp curve. Abby turns her pain and anger into a passion for hunting down and killing monstrous animals for a profit. When Abby's employer sends her and her partner Beatty to Misty Lake to kill the monster, Abby's life has come full circle. In the meantime, another company hires Miriam and Macy to find a cryptid reportedly living near Misty Lake. Escorted by the local guide Kim, their job is to determine whether it exists and to document its presence. The two sets of hunters are at cross purposes, and Abby and Beatty are the ones who have weapons. Can Miriam, Kim, and Macy protect the rare animal? Or will they also die along with the innocent creature?
The Devil of Misty Lake by J.P. Barnett is a thrilling tale in a science fiction series featuring a creature based on an old European legend. This captivating novel brims with action and danger and is comparable to a Michael Crichton or Dean Koontz novel. Spellbinding, the plot develops at a fast pace, smoothly flowing from one intense scene to the next. It holds the reader captive from the first exciting page until the last. Miriam and Macy are intriguing characters with flaws and personality traits that give them a sense of genuineness. Even though I never read Macy or Miriam's previous exploits and adventures, their backgrounds smoothly ease into the story, enhancing their present venture. Superbly written, this suspenseful and exciting novel promises to thrill science-fiction fans and adventure readers alike.
