Note: I received a review copy of this book free from the author, Michael Hebler. The review posted below is based on my personal thoughts while reading the book.
This was again a pretty good horror story I'd enjoyed reading. The story started with how a Chupacabra is made. Yes, it was made through a ritual performed by the Indians to avenge the death of one of their tribesmen.
Jessie's story started out slooow for me, I didn't like her work in a saloon but with the dramatic reunion of the characters from book one, it became a page turner. I loved how the story played out for Suzanne and Jessie. Age aside, I thought of them as mother and daughter. Once the chupacabra showed up and killed again, they couldn't believe it. When Jessie learned this is a new creature, she no longer feared it, she was now pissed, extremely angry with the Injun (Indian) who created the new monster.
This book didn't disappoint and I wish it could be turned into a movie! This is a must read horror book!
Inside a small village within the Great Plains of Montana, a ritual initiated in blood will be performed. This ceremony has been executed only once before and will mark a rite of honor and justice. Commonly, the Assiniboine are a harmonious people with strong pride and passions, but turn to the spirits for vengeance when wronged. The tribe’s chief will summon the Great Spirit on behalf of his people, for no earthly man can make evil suffer like a greater evil.
Legend of the Chupacabra finds Jessie and Suzanne living peacefully in Portland, Oregon, six years after they believed to have put an end to the curse of the chupacabra. But the women come to learn of their failure and the futility of their sacrifices when a remarkable reunion brings horror back into their lives; only this time, what they face will be unlike any creature they've encountered. Legend of the Chupacabra marks the end of a trilogy but the continuation of a saga that will leave this moment of history drenched in blood.
