The Nature of the Beast

The Nature of the Beast Review

Hardly a day goes by when nine-year-old Laurent Lepage doesn't cry wolf. From alien invasions, to walking trees, to winged beasts in the woods, to dinosaurs spotted in the village of Three Pines, his tales are so extraordinary no one can possibly believe him. But when the boy disappears, the villagers are faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true. And so begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. What they uncover deep in the forest sets off a sequence of events that leads to murder, leads to an old crime, leads to an old betrayal. A monster once visited Three Pines. And put down deep roots. And now, it is back.

    I used to like the books in this series a lot more. This one begins promisingly with the question of whether a work of art should in any way be judged by the actions of its creator. But then it meande...

    Unbelievable!! I do not want to put any descriptors about the storyline in this review. It will spoil the end (and I mean the end-end, the author's note). I thought this storyline was a bit far-fetche...

    The historical aspects in this book are based on real events, as far-fetched as it might seem. Despite the freedom and democracy that the New World ensured its inhabitants, lethal evil also got a foot...
