Now twenty years later, they discover the deep dark secret the town has been hiding and the unimaginable lengths they will go to keep that secret. I sometimes wonder what is it about kids in America. There just seems to be a constant stream of naive youngsters who will insist on going into dangerous woods. Whether in a tent or cabin, it defies belief at times. Would a BB gun even take out a squirrel? Maybe because they have vast amounts of woodland with log cabins, and it is just conducive to legends. Even if in this narrative, the wooded area in question just happens to be close to the neighbourhood. But obviously, it continues to make for a good narrative, and so it proves again here. Well written and well-conceived, with a few twists and turns that were unexpected. There is some excellent dialogue between the four friends, which is very realistic and includes some humour. Entertaining characters that are developed as the book progresses. But not overly so, similar to the settings, as the book is not overly long and too much detailed description would spoil the story. Early chapters are a bit pedestrian, but the excitement ramps up when necessary. This also adds to the suspense. I am not giving away spoilers because the book is short, so it would be unfair to the reader. And I didn't expect the ending. Brilliant. Sometimes short stories are the better stories.

    The Story is interesting, it keeps you reading. Unfortunatelly the style is that of comics, every chapter seems to be the outline of one.

    This was a fun, very enjoyable read but I think it's most suited for children or maybe YA. I'm very much an adult and I should have known looking at the cover but I saw it as a read now on NetGalley and the horror junkie in me had to jump in xD. Like I said it's a very enjoyable read - a dark forest, a crazy town, a Wendigo (love how it was described!), human sacrifices, and resilient kids turned into adults. At 130 pages I think it makes for a fairly decent pastime. This was a fun, very enjoyable read but I think it's most suited for children or maybe YA.

    The cover suggested some entertaining creature horror, and because of its nice style at first I thought this would be a graphic novel. Of course, reading the summary I learned that 'Monsters among us' was indeed a written story, but I was still intrigued by the idea - a lot. Unfortunately, the cover remained the one and only good part of the book. While the plot was based on some decent, though probably not new ideas, their implementation and the writing were absolutely horrible.

Unfortunately, the cover remained the one and only good part of the book. While the plot was based on some decent, though probably not new ideas, their implementation and the writing were absolutely horrible. Incoherent plot turns and sudden new twists turned the book into a confusing and frustrating mess which was no fun to read at all. Add to that the poor writing and missing editorial work, and what you get is a botched story that could have been so much more had only someone bothered taking the time to untangle this mess, put things and scenes in order, add background story, smooth out passages between chapters, and especially give it several rounds of editing and proofreading. Sorry to say, but I really wonder how this book even made it into publishing. (thanks to netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)

    Wow just wow what a quick read this book was. It was so creepy and scary and I might try and get a physical copy so I can re-read it during spooky season. It follows friends Max, Becca, Luke and Gabby. Their town was a strange one and they wanted to figure out why so they went into the woods where they were told to never go. Ever since that day very bad things began to happen. The rest you will have to figure out for yourself cause I don’t want to spoil it lol.

    This story had so much potential in it! But I feel like we read the CliffNotes to what could have been a much, much more detailed story. I love wendigos and monsters and the secrets behind small towns but this story just glazed over EVERYTHING. Very disappointed. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the e-arc I received in exchange for an honest review.
