The Curse of the Wendigo (Monstrumologist, #2)The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OOOH! Just started and it is already so good. RY is a master writer!

Later ...

Now I'm done. And really. He is good. But why must it be so gross at the same time? I mean GROSS.

PS Am I the only one who didn't know Wendigo was another word for vampire? Pretty sure I'd heard the word before in other stories. Guess either I wasn't paying attention or this is a liberty RY took with his version.

"Now, a single wold will clear the woods for miles--but what is there that will chase a wolf away?" (p37) (BTW ... the descriptions of the scenes in the Canadian wilderness were beautiful. When they weren't gross.)

"The gray land was deceptively still. It kept its secrets. Something was following us." (p115)

"A word of advice, Will Henry. When a person of the female gender wants to show you something, run the other way. The odds are it is not something you wish to see." (p257)
