Summary

"Jonathan Janz does several things immaculately well in Savage Species, primarily crafting high-octane action sequences and creating antagonists that you can easily hate in the span of only a few short paragraphs.... Overall, Savage Species delivered the goods." (High Fever Books)

Jesse thinks he’s caught a break when he, Emma (the girl of his dreams), and her friend are assigned by their newspaper to cover the opening weekend of a sprawling new state park. But the construction of the park has stirred an evil that has lain dormant for nearly a hundred years, and the three young people - as well as every man, woman, and child unlucky enough to be attending the Algonquin Falls grand opening - are about to encounter the most horrific creatures to ever walk the earth.

Story is great, narration meh

The story is fast-paced and sucks you in. The last quarter felt progressively depressing but it fit well in this universe. The narrator, however, mispronounced several words (doesn’t anyone watch for that?). He also created a voice for Colleen that grated on my nerves. It made her one-dimensional. None of this was enough for me to stop listening to the book but I’m hopeful this review will help the narrator improve.

Gore Feast Galore

This book is in-your-face horror throughout. Also, there is some rape for people who are triggered with such scenarios, and it was even hard for me to listen to at times. Had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. The narrator has a fittingly creepy voice to go with the story. 5 stars from me.

a fun read/listen

Has all the things I enjoy in a book. Monsters with gore. A splash of sexuality. Even though it dealt with serious situations and was quite intense at times, it was still very fun

Bland Characters, Excessive Sexism, Bad Narration

After reading the reviews for this title I was a little hesitant. Two words, "bad narrator" gave me pause, but after listening to the sample, which was decent, I figured I could stomach the bad narration for what seemed like an ok horror novel. I was wrong. After the beginning scene, the book takes an absolute nose dive. Terrible characters bumbling through a bare bones plot. Clumsy foreshadowing that is less foreshadowing and more akin to being smacked with a sign that reads "here's what's happening next!" Add on an incredibly lecherous "nice guy" character who can't stop thinking about when he can next masterbate to his female coworker in a swimsuit and the narration became the unbearable icing on the cake. I tried listening to it with the narration slowed down a bit, as the man's voice has this high whining, nasal quality, but that only made it worse. The voices he does for the various female characters are borderline a crime against nature. Overall, would not recommend.

boring

stereotype story. almost every man dies for a woman needlessly. woman I just met you go I will die for you. woman I have been crushing on for years who just hooked with another dude a few hours ago. monsters always letting the abused mother/wife get away with her kidnapped baby.

just bad
