IT IS REAL . . .
Some call it a spirit, a demon. Others, an all-consuming force of nature. According to Cree legend, it goes by the name of Wendigo. For a hundred years it has been sleeping. Resting beneath the earth. Buried in a godless no-man’s-land known as Resurrection Pass . . .
IT IS RISING . . .
Led by half-Cree guide Jake Trueblood, a clandestine team of exploratory miners enter a remote valley in the Canadian wilderness. Searching for veins of untapped rare earth elements, they begin drilling into the spongy soils of the forest—and uncover something unbelievably large, unspeakably grotesque, and inexplicably alive . . .
IT IS RAVENOUS.
Within seconds, all hell breaks loose. Giant grasping tendrils shoot out of the earth. Poisonous spores explode into the air. And the horrified miners become a living, screaming feast for the biggest, hungriest creature the world has ever seen. Jake Trueblood and a young ecologist named Rachel barely escape with their lives, only to confront the Okitchawa, a murderous group of local Cree infuriated by the presence of the mining team. But even if they can escape the Okitchawa, Jake and Rachel’s ordeal is far from over. The nightmare is just beginning . . . to feed.

This book could have been a good bit shorter and would have been a lot better for it!!
So the basic premise is that some group go to Resurrection Pass looking for some kind of mineral, or something like that anyway. They wake up something and all hell breaks loose up there. Then there are some other people, a native American tribe I think, who needs to stop the first group. Now if I sound very vague about the plot, that’s because I really am. I finished this a week or so ago and still can’t figure out the whole plot! There were parts that were good, but they were too interspersed with parts that were rambling about things I couldn’t follow! My attention kept drifting off during it and felt like it was a chore to listen to. There were chapters that were told from both groups, but it took a little bit to realise we had switched from one group to the next. I didn’t connect to the plot at all!
There were quite a few characters but I didn’t particularly like any of them. They all just kind of melded together and I really didn’t care who lived or who died. There was no character development at all and if I can’t connect with one single character then I know it’s not a book I’ll love.
The Wendigo… well it was definitely different! I’m still unsure how a wendigo can have tentacles!! Initially, I thought it was a fungus thing, but then it mentions it’s a Wendigo, and I’m still shaking my head wondering how it got to be a Wendigo but anyway…!! There wasn’t an awful lot I liked about this book, and even the ending left me down, so I was quite disappointed!
There are way too many narrators to name, but each of them read this really well and captured the atmosphere perfectly. It’s a Graphic Audio and boy do those sound effects make for an awesome read! It played out like a movie in my head and I loved it. Again, as with anything like this, the music sometimes made the dialogue hard to hear, but I still enjoyed the overall experience of all the effects.
