Roanoke Ridge Creature X Mysteries #1Skeptic But what begins as a simple search and rescue operation takes a drastic turn when a body is discovered and the body isn't the professor Caught in the fallout of the suspicious death perplexed by a sudden wave of Bigfoot sightings Ridge Creature X Epub #219 and still desperately searching for Professor Sorel Reagan reluctantly admits two things one that her old mentor was right about there being secrets hidden in Roanoke Ridge and two that it's up to her to uncover the Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the galley of this bookSO This book It was kinda campy and a fun rompbut then it feels like there are a couple chapters missing at the end The ending reveals happen so abruptly it's jarring especially after the slower meandering pace of the story prior I don't think it sets up the conceit of the story super well and it doesn't give a ton of background information which I felt lacking The characters feel a bit flat too but that's my own personal gripeThe writing is incredible but if you don't have a background in biologyanthropologypossibly archaeology you may want to have a dictionary handy because this book is riddled with science jargon and basically none of it is explained For the pace of the first 80% of the book to be so slow the last 20% careens at breakneck speed and the whole tone of the book shifts along with it It feels a little like I read two totally different books but with similar plot linesIt's a short fun read and I wouldn't discourage you from reading it I just felt a bit disappointed overall by it
