DID THAT CAPTURE YOUR ATTENTION. LOL That gives you a sense of the atmostphere of doom and gloom that Ivy Keating and Scot Spotson have created.
Camouflage…by Ivy Keating & Scott Spotson…the title had me curious, but the woodsy cover had me captivated. I love book covers that have trees and forests on them, there’s just something about them that draws me in, wanting to walk through them, touching them, wondering how old they are….
Welll, got a little carried away there. Let’s get on with it.
Cover Art: Robyn Hart
A title like Camouflage and a cover with a forest…what can possibly go wrong?
I love Ivy Keatinng’s inspiration for the story. Proves my thoughts, that you have to keep have your mind open 24/7 to let those ideas filter into your subconscious, let them percolate, and become a story.
Vanessa felt drawn to Quarry Head, where she had dropped off her friend Jason for a jog and he was never seen again. Quarry Head is a 300 acre state park in Connecticut.
Sean was considered too young to be the police chief, but it is what it is. He did have a problem that he kept secret, he had taken a blow to the head and it had affected his vision. He corrected the problem with special contact lenses. There were some bonus side affects, he had superior night vision and he focused on shapes over color. I’m thinking that will come in handy, with a title like camouflage…and a deadly prehistoric creature.
Sean heads out to the Park and comes home without Jason…but he does have a new member to add to his household…Scout, an abandoned dog. Hmmm…
This is all sounding more and more like the B movies that I love so much. So, will they capture it or kill it? Myself, I have watched enough movies, like the Croc movies and Anaconda and the well known Jurassic Park, that I know what happens when you try to capture it. KILL IT! Study it or KILL IT!
What would you do? What if it is a discovery of a lost species, a new species? Would you jump at the chance to learn about a new creature? Or would you only see the danger and opt to KILL IT!
I didn’t know the ending and I love that. I had thought it was going to be so predictable. The pacing and suspense kept me engrossed, reading, thinking, pondering, waiting… The characters grew and developed deeper personalities. A little romance never hurts a creature feature either.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Camouflage by Ivy Keating and Scott Spotson.
