When a small town legend starts an all out war, that’s where legends become reality.
At age 12, Jeff Taylor’s family was brutally murdered by a beast living in the woods of his hometown of Babble Creek, North Carolina. Young Jeff Taylor left town after his family’s funeral and did not return for 15 years. His return came after having learned a few things while serving two tours in Iraq and he is out to seek vengeance on the creature that slew his family. Unfortunately, Taylor’s lust for blood sets in motion a series of events that soon has the entire town fighting for its life.
Have you ever read a book that you actually had to slow yourself down while reading it so that it doesn’t end too soon? Well, that’s what I found myself doing as I was reading BIGFOOT WAR by Eric S Brown. It was an action pack thrill ride of mayhem and mutilation and I truly did not want to see the story end. To be perfectly honest, if done right, I could definitely see this being made into a movie. It has all the makings of an action packed horror/gore filled romp from the forest to the city limits
I’m sure you can guess by the title and summary that these creatures are not the cute, peaceful sasquatches some folks tend to believe them to be, or at least they aren’t after Jeff Taylor comes back to town to seek retribution for the death of his father and brother. No, when you kill one of their own, these Bigfoot (Bigfeet?) are damn near an unstoppable force and they have set their sights on the town of Babble Creek to seek their revenge.
Suffice it to say that I loved BIGFOOT WAR. It is on the shorter side. I would have loved to have had the story lengthened a bit, but, personally, I think it is a fantastic unique journey into the lore of the Bigfoot.
