Book Description

A group of guests are looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner at an island restaurant in the middle of the Mississippi. Midway through the meal, chaos breaks out as animals begin attacking. Birds slam into the windows, and vast clouds of insects circle in tornadoes around the island.

Soon, it's clear that every animal in sight is looking for a feast of their own--or maybe just revenge. Even if the surviving guests can fight their way outside, how long can they last when the natural world's united against them?

5.0 out of 5 stars What if the animals fought back? February 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was excellent! Don't read it if you have a weak stomach! It does make you think...what if?? What if all the creatures on earth turned on mankind? Who would win? I won't spoil the ending for anyone but I can assure you - neither side is willing to give up without a fight. It starts in a restaurant and the author does an excellent job of introducing the characters in an interesting way that kept me turning the pages. When the action begins to start the author builds it up quickly and made my heart pound as I imagined what it would be like to be stuck in a restaurant, afraid to step out the door! How long will they be safe inside? They can't stay there forever? Is this happening locally, the country, or is it world wide? All these questions are answered and the suspense is intense. You probably won't put this story down until you are finished!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonstop action! April 28, 2012

Imagine a world where animals -- just about all of them -- act in concert to destroy humankind and civilization as we know it? Well, Nick Steckel does exactly that in this non-stop, action-packed, fast-paced novel. Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. Great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept me on my toes this Thanksgiving! May 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was on a "Zombie" kick and some how came across Nick Steckel's The Animals. It was an engrossing read, that gave a bit of character developement,not unlike a short novel by the Great One-Stephen King, then the whirlwind of a ride started and didn't stop. I was actually reading this while on the road to Thanksgiving dinner, and did not do my share of the driving since I wasnt going to put the kindle down until I completed this. I happen to have a cat much like the mascot at the restaurent and now will look at her somewhat askance. I have to hand it to Nick Steckel for keeping the suspense going right up to the end. I only wish it were published as I have some Stone Age friends that would enjoy this on paper. I will look for more of Mr. Steckel's work.

Omg I wish I could give this one more stars. It was one of the best short stories I've read in a very long time. The author threw in some amazing twists and turns. It kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. The reality if it happening was very scary too. I love love loved it!!!

I hate to say it but the book was predictable and slow. It was a little like an old Twilight Zone episode.

More About the Author

I am an independent author living in Ohio. I've been writing in some form since early 2002, though most of what I wrote makes me glad that it was several computers ago. Since then, I've published three books on Amazon Kindle. The Animals, a horror novel about a worldwide animal rebellion, was released in July 2010. I released two more books in late 2011. Transfer is a science fiction novel about an alien invasion of Earth, and Dead of Night is an alternate history novel about zombies in Nazi Germany. (Yes, seriously.)

I am currently working on my fourth novel, Done is Done.
