Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"The Cryptids Trilogy" is a labor of love, meticulously researched and yet full of the mythology and science of Native American culture and the studies surrounding them.

Relying on native legend, historical records and eyewitness accounts, every effort has been made to ensure the accurate depiction of the people and the fossil record explanation for the monsters of their oral traditions.

The extrapolation of both into a three volume set of cryptofiction novels began in 2002 with "Shadow of the Thunderbird", continued in 2003 with "Track of the Bigfoot" and concludes in 2004 with "Wake of the Lake Monster". --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Dallas Tanner was born in 1956, at the stroke of midnight during the worst storm of the century to that date, in the seacoast township of North Kingston, Rhode Island. The eldest child of a career naval officer, he attended 9 schools in 12 years, as they moved about the country. His interest in local myths, legends and all things paranormal grew out of the ever-changing diversity of his upbringing. His first novel, "Shadow of the Thunderbird", was required reading at a large technical college in South Carolina. He has frequently lectured, appeared on or hosted radio shows, and presented at conferences on his books and interest in cryptozoology. He is often cited in the media as an expert on unknown or unexpected animals. He was instrumental in salvaging Dan Taylor's Nessie chaser mini subs, the Viperfish and the Nessa II, and is currently pursuing an interest in fossil diving. When he isn't exploring remote locations such as the Altamaha River, Mt. St. Helens or Loch Ness, Dallas is content to write novels in his home study under the watchful eye of his longhair Tabby, Samwise. He now lives in Greenville, SC with his wife Carla and their five children, where he is at work on his latest project. You can visit the author online at www.dallastanner.com or email him at author@dallastanner.com Dallas Tanner is available to speak locally with your group, or remotely via phone or web.

I began reading The Cryptids Trilogy just for this book. I liked the first book well enough but it could have been better. Here in Tanner's sophomore book, he has improved and I enjoyed it much more. However, I must give both sides of my thoughts.

The first 50 pages or so of the book are very sloppy. It seems like Tanner wrote several different beginnings and then opted to stick them all in. I found many annoying redundant items in these pages. 1. Everytime he used the word 'cryptid' he had to explain what it meant even though he already explained it 4 pages previously. 2. He did the same thing with "El Diablo Rojo, or The Red Devil", man that was bothering me like someone can't translate three simple Spanish words. 3. Most of all, in the first 50 pages, he constantly rehashes the first book (Shadow of the Thunderbird - SotT) and McQuade's camping trip as a boy. You can get away with it maybe twice but then it just got irritable. These are the only reasons why this book gets 4 instead of 5 stars.

Now on to the good, other than the beginning, I truly enjoyed this book. Once you get past the bogged down beginnings, the story is well written and entertaining. Tanner cut down the James Bondish parts of the Chimaera Foundation and focused more on developing McQuade as a character. Ranging from McQuade's despondence over not having Alma around to becoming a lead investigator and team leader facing his childhood fear, the character becomes much more connective than in 'SotT'. Starting off with a filmed sighting in Ohio to the involvement of the Minnesota Iceman, we get some background on Albert Myers, the conspiracy theorist, and are introduced to new character the spitfire Belinda 'Billye' Carlton. From there we moved to Mt St Helens for the rest of the mission.

Mr. Tanner has me hooked on this series. I really had no idea what cryptozoology was until I picked up his books. Now I cannot wait to read the third installment in the series.
Mr. Tanner does a nice job developing the characters, giving full explanations as to the reasons for their flaws and quirks. Ian McQuade, the primary character, is a unique individual that everyone can relate to as well as laugh at. The story is well thought out and the explanations for the creatures are very informative with in-depth research as to why they might exist.
This series is exciting and entertaining for even the uninformed in cryptozoology.

It you're a Bigfoot fan and like rip-roaring, rollercoaster-ride adventure, this novel is definitely not to be missed. Ian McQuade is back, this time without Alma, and he's assigned by the Chimaera Foundation to go out and discover a Bigfoot. First, he has to retrieve the Minnesota Iceman from a meatpacking plant in Ohio where it has been stored all these years....and he winds up at Mt. St. Helens, encountering an eccentric and aged Bigfoot named Karloff and the even bigger--and meaner--mythical Wendigo, which turns out to be a relict population of the extinct Asian Gigantopithecus, the Ultimate Big Ape. Ian is forced to make major decisions for the expedition, a new experience for him, and he is aided by a new heroine named Billye Carlton, a bellicose and cranky young woman who beats Ian up a couple of times before she gets to like him. And the blockbuster ending is just what I've come to expect from D. L. in his novels.

D. L. has named several of his characters for his friends. Loren Coleman, probably the most celebrated cryptozoologist in the world, appears as himself, as a mentor to Ian. Billye Carlton is, of course, Billye McCarty of Oklahoma, our mutual great friend and D. L.'s relentless editor, who leaves no comma unturned and no misplaced hyphen excused. She does a bang-up job, whipping her author's creativity into its most readable form. Author Lee Murphy appears as a park ranger, and there is even a minor character named Ella Howard, for me! To say I was thrilled at that is a gross understatement.

In "Track", D. L. has not only lived up to my expections after reading "Shadow of the Thunderbird", but surpassed them. Now I'm eagerly awaitng his third novel in the trilogy, this time dealing with lake monsters. Water cryptids don't ring my bell, but I know the new novel will have my complete and extended attention.

If you see my other reviews on this series, you'll appreciate that I'm not so keen on them for an adult audience. There's some interesting material in there if you've not been exposed to the Bigfoot, Thunderbird and Nessie stories in any depth but other than that they really seem to be more about the young teen.

A really entertaining and informative read.
I think its great, no imperative, that an author does the research required to cover all the parts as a whole.I am not sure how many times I have read books that the story is correct except for dates, names, or something as small as the caliber of a rifle.This author is intelligent, most are but that is not enough to write a good novel. Composing a good, well written novel is exactly what this author excels at.
The characters seem real and are not super human, unlike this book, in many books the lead person can take on a Russian super trained army by them self.The lead character in this book isn't always likable, some parts tend to make him appear as a (girly guy)which I guess is a trend of people who obtain the coveted letters PHD.The lead character Ian is a little to far inside his past but comes through in a pinch.As I stated in the beginning a really entertaining and informative read.
