Prehistoric Terror Returns to Western Canada!

The sequel to Katie Berry's Award-winning novel, Claw: A Canadian Thriller is here!

Their shattered town rebuilt, the residents of Lawless, BC, are once again ready to get on with their lives, the terrors from the past now behind them. A winter solstice festival is planned to celebrate both the holidays and the townspeople's determination to get things done.

However, human nature and mother nature have different ideas. Between their caprices, Lawless is once again thrust into a maelstrom of avarice, vengeance, and horrors from out of time.

Battered by a huge snowstorm, the small mountain town must pull together and fight for their very lives against vicious predators from both the past and present now wreaking havoc in the surrounding valley.

Nothing to see here, folks!

I enjoyed the first book and looked forward to the second. Unfortunately, the fact that the characters just went about life as before was ridiculous. Giant extinct species are found alive and NOBODY comes to study the area? Really? Yep, there is some kind of frozen animal time capsule cave, but let’s not try to dig down to find it, again. I could only listen to chapter 23, when a character nonchalantly tells another character, “Be careful going sledding…and, oh yeah, there is a saber-toothed tiger out there…somewhere”.

Good book but I liked first better

A good book but not as suspenseful and action-packed as the first one, but is still a good read.

good listen

The narrator could use a little more inflection and pauses to make listening a little more enjoyable.

"Prehistoric Pussy" the author actually wrote that

Monotone narrator. Boring and ridiculous story. This time it's multiple prehistoric animals. Plus add in a teenage boy being suckered by a manipulative teenage girl using her so-called "wiles" and promising make out sessions to get what she wants...... I'd strongly suggest passing on this one.

Unbelievable mess

The sequel acts like none of the events in the previous book happened. The author added extra creatures but the characters act like they don’t exist or
having unrealistic reactions to them. The first part of the book was fine and the second act a complete mess. This was a complete letdown of a sequel.

Not quite the original, but great nonetheless

After reading her debut novel, CLAW: A Canadian Thriller, I became a huge Katie Berry fan. The book had fantastic atmosphere and had an excellent storyline to boot. Katie went on to write the ABANDONED series, which I was critical of. The storyline was superb, but I was irritated by the juvenile conversation between the two main characters. I was also unhappy that the story was broken into four parts which made each book appear more a novella than a novel. I read the first two books in the series and decided not to continue any further. I did not get invested in the characters as the stories were too short. Frankly, I couldn't remember any of the characters' names when I started reading the second book.

This brings me to CLAW: Resurgence. I picked up the book from Audible with a bit of hesitancy due to my frustration with the ABANDONED series. However, I should not have been concerned. I immediately "reconnected" with the characters. They were all there: Austen, Christine, Trip and, of course, the nasty monsters.

So, why does the story not get five stars? Well, firstly, the book is not quite up to the standard of the first book in the series. Don't get me wrong, it is great, but the novelty has worn a bit. It was also not as atmospheric. The first book in the series had me shivering down here in warm South Africa - this book not so much so. Secondly, the same criticism I have for the ABANDONED series also reared its head here. The dialogue, at times, is terrible. It is filled with cliches, and all the characters are simply too "nice". Even when things are turning out badly, the characters still have time to come up with quips. The dialogue portrays them as overly friendly. The narrator, Alex Know, is brilliant, but to some extent, he exasperates the issue with the voices that he uses for the characters. The final thing that I didn't enjoy was how the characters kept talking to animals and other inanimate objects. The characters talk to bears, guns, cars, snow-ploughs, etc., as if they are human beings. One or two of these incidents is okay, but the extent was too much.

Will I read the next book in the series should there be another? Of course! I only wish Katie could tighten her dialogue writing to match the gritty and scary storyline. It is frustrating to see such a talented storyteller erode the quality of her books by poor dialogue writing. But keep them coming, Katie. I can't wait to see what happens next in Lawless.
