Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hebler gave me more than I ever expected." - Laura Thomas, FU Only Knew Book Reviews"

The story is so action-packed and heartfelt, there is something for everyone." - Diana Ramsey, Offbeat Vagabond Book Blog
"Hebler has definitely stumbled onto a cast of characters and a villain so exceptional." - Heather Boustead, Reflections of a Bookworm

About the Author

Before maturing into an annoying tween, Michael used to "borrow" Stephen King books off his mother's bookshelf. Although he has not been clinically evaluated, Michael is positive that his adolescent self-introduction into adult horror had an impact on his dark sense of humor and love for Jason Voorhees. On the upside, Michael has found an outlet in which to put his twisted thoughts to proper use, and thanks to a college degree which proves that he had studied the importances of plot, characters, conflict, themes, and interactions, he is able to give his stories the attention they deserve.

But life wasn't always about the written page. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Michael had a career as an international film publicist, working on multiple titles for Walt Disney, Pixar, Lionsgate, Lakeshore Entertainment, Warner Bros., Summit Entertainment, as well as the 2013 Academy Award® Best Foreign Language film, "La grande bellezza" (The Great Beauty). Sounds exciting, right? Michael thinks so, too.

Currently, in his spare time, Michael also enjoys volunteering in his local community. Organizations he has supported include Meals on Wheels, Get On The Bus, as well as helping protect our animal population by aiding in the capture/spay/neuter/release feral program.​

I'm thrilled to be able to tell you about this brand new release!

The men huddle around the campire. The glow from the flames refelcts on their faces. A friendly game of poker between the two brothers is interupted by little Jessica, Drake`s daughter. Gavin grins, knowing Drake still can't figure out how she is sneaking out of the wagon.

Fearing Lucy's wrath, Drake tucks Jessica back in bed and then stops to talk with his wife. That's when it starts. The animals are an early warning. They jerk loose and tear off into the desert. Then an unholy roar comes from one of the wagons, soon accompanied by screams of terror.

The brothers race to get their guns, but before they can reach the wagon, something too fast to follow leaps from one wagon to the next and the screaming starts again. The chupacabra easily leaps from wagon to wagon, killing in a blood lust. All goes quite.

Then they get their first look at the creature. It's the size of a man, but there the resemblance ends. It's covered in brown fur, it's spiked tail flicks back and forth, it's red eyes glow, and it's stench can be smelled from across the fire.

Then it leaps into Drake's wagan. He dives in after it. The wagon shakes, rocks and bursts into flames. The creature bursts forth, engulfed in flames, and runs right into Gavin, pinning him to the ground. Gavin is being burned alive.

Impossibly, the thing is alive and leaps up to run off into the darkness, leaving Gavin mortally wounded. Lucy runs away into the night, driven hysterical by the loss of her daughter.

All this Drake sees as he lies helpless on the ground, horribly burned.

I can't believe this all takes place at the beginning of the book.

This is a little bit of a different genre for me, it's a Western that's in the 1870's......I usually read modern Horror Books.......It turned out to be a excellent story written by, author, Michael Hebler.........It's based around Mexican Folklore, about the mythical monster, the "Chupcabra" aka, the "Goat Sucker".......This is what I call a "Creature Feature" because it was so descriptive it was almost like watching a movie......You had your Saloons, Sheriff, Horses, Dessert, Wagons, Campfires, Card playing, Shotguns, and so on......It was an intriguing and suspenseful read.......Very action packed with little blood or gore.......More left up to your imagination.......Great characterization of all the players, especially Drake Byne who witnessed devastating events and is searching or his wife and daughter.......The ending was climatic and very emotional with an open question leading into the next book in the series.........

Five years ago Drake watched his whole family torn apart by a dark, evil shadow.......He has now been searching for his wife, Lucy and daughter Jessie......Unbeknownst to him the Chupacubra has been following him everywhere he goes.......There is some sort of link between them that won't let go......The Chupcabra is behind him always leaving a trail of blood......Drake arrives in Dillmore Valley and that's when things start revealing themselves to him........The entire sleepy, Western Town will be terrorized by the Evil, Spirit, Demon........As he stalking Jessie too because the Chupacubra left a job undone.......

First I want to say this story was action packed. At one point I thought it would start dragging but it quickly picked back up. There are no slow points in this book. I thought it was very well thought out and creative. The monster was easy to visualize as were the fight scenes. I can't say enough good things about this book. Very well done! However, after saying all that, there were problems with words being out of order, extraneous wording, and the use of not quite the right word. But these were few and far between. I don't believe I ran across any misspellings. For a first book, this is excellent and I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

Good job Michael!

Night of the Chupacabra is a great Horror-Western that is perfect for October. Night of the Chupacabra follows a man, named Drake, and his family traveling to west for a better life. One night while resting from all their travels with not too far to go, they end up meeting something terrible in the desert. They don't know what it is. All they know is that it looks like a man, it is fast and it wants to eat something...or someone. After tragedy strikes, Drake is on a journey. While he stumbles on a town, he gets more more than he bargained for, both from the townspeople and from the chupacabra he thought he left behind.

Wow, what a wonderful read this was. The story was very thrilling and well paced. Night of the Chupacabra is much more than a monster story. It is the story of a man who needs closure. Drake has lost so much, but he is on a mission. He is trying to find his lost wife. He doesn't believe she died when the chupacabra came and took out their camp. He travels send him to a secluded town named Dillmore (well valley), and as expected, everyone is frightened of Drake due to the scars on his face. Everyone is suspicious of him because they believe he is trouble. There are a few snags while he is staying at a bar, but things take a turn for the worse when it seems the chupacabra has followed him into town and a mistake was made with the locals.

I loved our main character Drake. He knows his looks make people rude, scared, and sometimes homicidal. But he doesn't let that faze him. He does what he can for his lost love. He doesn't let the stupidity or expectations of others stop him or make him into the monster they think he is. But my absolute favorite character in this book was the little girl Jessie.
