According to YouTube, the mythical creature Chupacabra is alive and well and living in the U.S. According to author Roland Smith, Chupacabra is alive and well and living in Seattle. Just hearing the name of this creature should send fear into the heart of any person. “Goat sucker” is what it means, and Noah Blackwood has created one. In Smith’s newest novel, Chupacabra, the reader is taken on a journey into the lair of Dr. Noah Blackwood, and can only hope to escape.
A few weeks ago, Grace Wolfe was kidnapped by Dr. Blackwood. Now her cousin Marty and his friend Luther must save her. They sneak out of the home of Travis Wolfe, Grace’s father, and sneak into the Ark. The Ark is the “greatest zoo out there,” and is the base of Noah Blackwood’s malicious crimes including animal harvesting, species extinction, and genetic creation.
Marty and Luther are accompanied by Dylan Hickok, another teenager who joined Wolfe’s team of scientists. Together, they have to free Grace, while avoiding Dr. Blackwood and his right hand man, Butch McCall. They’ll risk everything, including their lives to escape because Dr. Blackwood has a secret weapon–CH-9, or Chupacabra– that’s bred to devour everyone in its path.
Chupacabra is the third in the Cryptid Hunters series, following Cryptid Hunters and Tentacles. Chupacabra features less intensity and action than Tentacles, but features more plot and suspense than both of the earlier novels. It is necessary to read the first two books to understand Chupacabra.
True to form, Roland Smith does a great job establishing plot, building relatable characters and immersing the reader in the setting. This book is recommended for anyone with an appetite for suspense. Due to intense scenes, action, and suspense, this book is recommended for ages 10 and up. If this novel or any others in the series haven't been optioned for movies, they should.
