Zombie Bigfoot by Nick Sullivan [4.5 stars]

 
 
From the Description
 
The truth is out there... and it will eat your face.

"Bigfoot is real." That’s what Sarah’s father told her before his academic disgrace and untimely death.

Now, primatologist Dr. Sarah Bishop is eager to restore her father’s good name. Survival show host Russ Cloud is just as eager to boost his plummeting ratings. They’ll both have a shot at redemption when they find themselves hired by eccentric billionaire Cameron Carson. After a series of his publicity stunts end in spectacular failure, Carson has a plan to redeem his tarnished image: capture a live Sasquatch.

Sarah and Russ join an expedition with an eclectic crew: an Afrikaner safari hunter, a ‘roided out former wrestling star, a Shoshone master tracker full of surprises, a heavily tattooed Russian warrior woman, a pair of wise-cracking nerds, and a cute gum-chewing intern with some hidden skills. Will they find Bigfoot?

There’s something in the woods… but it’s not what they’re expecting.

I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel. I did not receive any form of compensation for my review.

Do you wanna know the recipe for a ton of fun? You start out with a group of 'squatch hunters looking to finally prove that Bigfoot exists. Some good and some with nefarious purposes in mind. Then you add a group of elusive cryptids and a zombified geologist. Mix well with action packed adventure and terrifying narrow escapes well seasoned with just the right amount of gory goodness. Slow roast over a campfire and don't worry about those sounds you hear coming from the darkness,,,, Zombie Bigfoot is a super fun book that moves at a pace that will leave you breathless. This story is everything that I loved about the late night creature features I used to watch on the late night horror shows of my youth. A highly recommended 4.5 star read.
