I love a good monster story. I love the idea of something unreal doing lots of damage and that's what this story gave me.
Falling Prey, by M. C. Norris, starts out fairly strong. The first thing I noticed was, they were flying TWA- that plane company has been gone since... I don't even remember! 93? Maybe even sooner. Then of all things, a terrorist attack of sorts takes place and all heck breaks loose with people falling from the sky... into the gaping maws of a ginormous mosasaurus! I was like, what?
Then the story hit some serious issues! I realized I was about 70% in to the book and another entirely new situation was kicking up and I still had no clear idea on why any of the story had even taken place! How in the world can you bring a new story into play when the book's about to end? I didn't really like that, but from the way I'm understanding it, the author either left it to possibly return with a sequel later or my imagination. To be honest, I think my imagination's much better.
I really liked Falling Prey but it was rather wordy and those words didn't bring everything together well. Like, the volcanic eruption that just came out of nowhere- what was the deal with that? Was it planned? Did the crazy Doctor know there would be an eruption? The crowd of chanters- it was all weird, like Norris just decided, "Welp, that's enough of that!" and WHAM!... The End. It's a massive, weak cliffhanger (if that was his intention), but the book just didn't end on a decent note. I felt like I was dumped in the center of a story and then it ended. I can say though, I understood enough of the ending to sorta imagine what may have happened next...
Anyway, I have another book by Norris. I'm hoping it will be better. On to my next book!!📚
