Trapped in Whittier (A Trent Walker Supernatural Thriller Book 1) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I don't believe in giving away spoilers in my reviews, so I'll keep it short. This book contains some of the most vivid setting descriptions I've ever read in such few words, the "werewolves" were not at all what I was expecting, and there was a lot of research done on the subjects covered in the book.
The believable twist on an ancient tale makes this probably the best werewolf story I've read to date.
On a side note, I first thought the description of Whittier was a genius idea for a fictional town. After some quick research, I found Whittier is in fact a real town, and the description is more accurate than the way some people describe their own homes. This book not only tells a good story, but serves as a great advertisement for the tourism industry in Alaska.
Because of Michael W. Layne, Whittier has moved to the top of my list of places I wasn't to visit. If it's anything like the book, I wouldn't mind being trapped there myself.
Here's the part where I usually do a pros and cons list, but I think I covered all pros I can without giving any spoilers, and there really aren't very many cons. There's a few editing mistakes, but that's about it. The rest of the book more than compensates for any faults I found.
In this Supernatural Thriller, you will not only get the ride of a typical thriller with twists and turns, you also get to ask the deeper philosophical question of how the worlds of human and animals are codependent and how they should respect each other’s boundaries.
Mentalist Trent Walker got to experience these two separate but connected worlds with an open mind. By telling the story of Trent Walker, the book will open your mind to a supernatural existence surrounding us.
After reading this book, I have become a Trent Walker fan, and can’t wait to read his next adventure in Las Vegas.
The author makes frequent mention of Trent's occupation as a "mentalist" and how he uses his knowledge to both read and manipulate people, much like Sherlock Holmes. I felt it integrated pretty nicely with the storyline, with Trent frequently pulling out his best "tricks" to escape danger.
While I was never really "horrified", I still felt the story had a sort of H.P. Lovecraft feel to it, with the secluded Alaskan town, the drunk that is more than he seems, and a secret horror hidden in the place you would least expect it.
All-in-all, well worth the price (free!) and an hour or two of your time.
I find it hilarious that other reviewers complain about the book's lack of realism. It's called fiction, dummies. If you want to experience the real world, go outside and take a walk.
I will definitely be reading Part 2 of the Trent Walker series.
