Hi there,

I picked up this book from the Kindle store because I thought the premise was one I'd find of interest. I wasn't wrong. The opening chapter hooked me on the very first page. That's always a good sign and bodes well for a book to maintain my interest.

I'm an American, so some of the Australian terminology took a bit of getting used to, but the built in dictionary in my Kindle 3 defined a Ute for me. (Think SUV when you see Ute and you'll flow right along.) The rest was easy enough for me to follow, and by the mid point of the book, I scarcely noticed the references as my mind automatically translated them into an American equivalent.

I love good action sequences. Les Turner writes pulse pounding action segments that I found very satisfying. I'm also partial to good character development and the author does a great job on that score as well.

This book has elements of horror, action adventure, and a dash of romance. Overall, it was a great recipe that was that was seasoned by the pacing and leavened by the setting, which was well portrayed.

For my friends who follow my reviews I want to say that this is another of the Horizon award nominees that I am constantly looking for when I read books by authors whose work I've never read. If you don't have this book in your library, and a bit of gore and horror won't trouble you, then buy it today.

This book is under priced. At $0.99, it's a steal.

I'll definitely be watching for more books by this author.

Have a great day,
Ricky Sides

"The Pack" was a fun and scary little book that you just had to keep reading.

Beth is a journalist in Sydney lusting after a NY position. Having fled the city of Brereton twelve years ago at a young age and after a marriage proposal by Gabe, she is reluctant to return when her boss, Mr Brown asks her to cover a story there regarding canine attacks on humans and cattle alike.
Fueled by her ambition and possibly her subconscious need to see the people she cares for again, she drives to Brereton with her young daughter.
It is all rumors and speculation when she gets there and everyone is happy to share an opinion bordering on urban legend with dog interbreeding in order to make the perfect killer dog for dog fighting, but Beth finds out it's all true the hard way.

Barely surviving a dog attack herself, thanks to Gabe, now a National Parks and Wildlife officer, Beth knows there's a story right there. What she doesn't know, though, is that as she delves even deeper into this mystery she is undeniable danger, herself and everyone she cares about.

I really liked how packed with action the book was. It really didn't stall or drag at all. From the very first moment you became acquainted with Beth and her life and then into the little community of Brereton.
Although the story telling was more "tell" than "show" and I'm usually not sold on this, it worked really well for this book since it mostly focused on the action. Through people's reactions and words, you had no trouble understanding them and what drove them, what made them act that way. The motives ranged from love and loyalty, to anger, revenge, even stubbornness.

I picked up this book with interest since my day-job has to do with animal behavior (specifically cats and dogs). The Pack was an entertaining read but might be off-putting to those Americans who have a soft spot in their heart for pet dogs since these are the "bad guys" in the story. I would have liked it more, I think, had the heroine actually saved herself instead of being rescued, and if she'd a stronger reason to make her final career choice *shrug* But the characters were well drawn and I found most of the wild dog behaviors believable. This is, after all, fiction and I loved the author's ability with great dialogue and action scenes.

I only meant to look at the first page of this book, and 2 hours later I'd finished it! Once I started reading it I was totally engrossed in the story and the characters and had to keep reading , I didn't find it over complicated but really enjoyed the story, the characters, and the pace of the book, I'm looking forward to reading the next book from this author, this one kept me entertained for 2 hours, and thats all I hope for in a book, a cracking read, and thats what you will get with this one.

well paced, good story, fast action. Really easy to read story about some believable characters who find themselves pitted against some unlikely and ferocious foes, in the setting of contemporary Australian bushland.

Not very 'prosey' if you are into that, however the simplicity works well in the contemporary time setting and makes the action read very clearly

would make a great film!
