The book has many points-of-view to tell the story. However our hero, in my opinion, is Wyatt Baldwin (“No relation to Alec”)
Together, he and his two friends, Howard Drucker, and Melvin get the opportunity-of-a-lifetime to experience the Theme Park at its opening. However, our hero realizes that something is not right, and he doesn’t like what he discovers.
This book was well written, and took the time to introduce the major players in the story before the plot thickened too much. When it did begin to thicken, I found it hard to put down, and was looking forward to reading it through to the end. With incredible grace, and suspense, I learned that as the plot thickens the pace quickens.
I read this book with the savage ferocity of a werewolf as I got deeper into the story. The whole time I read, the first, Last and only question on my mind was: Who will survive the opening of MONSTERLAND?
dun dun DUN!!!!!!!!!
I received a free copy of Monsterland to read and share my honest and unbiased review.
Wyatt, his younger brother and a group of friends are lucky enough to score tickets for the grand opening event. But what starts as a star-studded media sensation, attended by celebrities, politicians and even the president of the U.S. turns into a nightmare of blood and death as the “attractions” turn on their keepers and guests.
This is a fast-paced read and thrill ride filled with fun characters and vivid scene settings. A YA read that many adults will find enjoyable, too.
This book had me glued to its pages from the first chapter . The author takes us on a journey, into a place that scares us but also tantalizes us. He has taken and mixed the vampire , zombie and werewolf lore and placed them all in one story. He shows us another side of them. They are misunderstood and are treated unfairly. You see them as not just the monsters, you see them as the people they were.
You also see the friends and family dynamic in action. There is also a deeper part of the book that shows how evil politics can be and how corrupt that it can be. It makes you think so who truly needs to be put behind the bars the people or the werewolves, vampires and zombies .
The characters in this book range from the sweet and innocent Jade to the epitome of evil Dr Conrad . The main character is Wyatt Baldwin and his family. Wyatt is a no nonsense kid who is having trouble with his younger brother and is love with the quarterback's girlfriend. You see him change and grow as you read , he grows up fast and becomes the hero that everyone knows he is.
The cast of characters are so complex and involved and when all thrown together in a pot are great. You see the kids become heroes and protectors and trust me you will cheer especially Melvin. He finally found out where he belonged , not going to spoil it and tell you but I was so shocked and then happy for him. You will figure it out as you read.
This book is full of scary but it doesn't really push the gore factor. Which I enjoyed so much, I dislike books that have to rely on the gore factor to get their point across. Michael doesn't do that, he has a way of writing that fills you with suspense and scares you with out it. The book is fast paced and has some great plot twists , that will keep you reading well into the night . So if you want a great book to read on HALLOWEEN night check it out . This is a book that will scare and delight you at the same time
