When she was a child, Natalie McQueen watched the Loch Ness monster kill and eat her parents. Now, she's back at the Loch to get some payback!

As I've mentioned in other reviews, I spent a lot of my pre-teen years reading about cryptozoology, although I didn't know the term for it at the time. I spent countless afternoons reading about weird monsters, usually in books written by Daniel Cohen. Hunter Shea must have read some of the same books.

Loch Ness Revenge is just what the title says it is, a

LOCH NESS REVENGE, by Hunter Shea, is an adrenaline-fueled "creature feature" that infuses the legend of the Loch Ness Monster with Shea's own brilliant imagination, to come up with an all-together "new" horror novel. Added to the mix is a generous amount of dark humor, gore aplenty, and characters that you just can't get enough of!

There is nothing more interesting to read than a book that brings the famous Loch Ness monster to life.

Natalie and Austin McQueen (the twins) were young when they saw their parents eaten by the Loch Ness Monster. Now that they are older and have the financial means to do what they want, they decide to go on a hunting trip back to the area where their parents died.

They find more than they bargained for as during their hunt, they not only find one, but a few monsters. Austin decides to enlist his

To anyone who's known me for any length of time, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of monsters. I'll consume movies and books about them all day every day, whether they're traditional creatures like vampires and werewolves and zombies-oh my-or ones you don't see so often these days, like kaiju or body snatching aliens. But when it comes to beasts of the cryptid variety-Sasquatch, the Jersey Devil, and others of that

2019 is starting out with a bang as Hunter Shea's LOCH NESS REVENGE is my first read of the new year. And oh what a read it was. Who isn't fascinated by one of the most famous cryptids of all time, the Loch Ness Monster? For me, Nessie has always been one of the holy trifecta of cryptids, along with Sasquatch and the Yeti. I can still hear Leonard Nimoy's voice from my childhood as he told us every week what he was In Search Of, and Nessie was one of my favorites. So how can you tell a ...more

Loch Ness Revenge combined two of my most favorite elements- water + cryptid creatures! : ) I went into this with very high hopes and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

What really sets this book apart from other creature features I've read are the characters and the dialogue! I absolutely LOVED the characters- Natalie, Austin & Henrik, and their personalities! Hunter Shea has the best sense of humor and he blends it in their dialogue seamlessly. It's not corny or

More monster mayhem from a guy who's, as good as, or better than anyone currently writing in this horror sub-genre.

Hunter Shea has already given us stories about Bigfoot, The Montauk Monster, The Dover Demon and more recently The Jersey Devil and now The Loch Ness Monster. Makes you wonder where he's headed next.

Twenty years ago, Natalie McQueen, her brother, Austin, and their parents were on vacation in Scotland, camping by the infamous Loch Ness.

Hunter Shea's latest cryptid horror-actioneer, Loch Ness Revenge takes us to the mythical creature's Scotland habitat as twins Natalie and Austin McQueen seek revenge on the creature responsible for the death of their parents.

The premise and set-up is short, sweet, and to the point. Shea wastes no time getting into the guts of his story and delivers an action-packed sea tale of man vs. beast. Loch Ness Revenge is a fast-moving novella, with plenty of hearty violence and a fair share of familial

The B movie, we all have our own definition of it. For me, the B movie is a film that is shorter, quicker to the punch and something that I would go to when I just want to have a little bit of fun. Hunter Shea is a master of creating the literary equivalent of the B movie. Loch Ness Revenge is a perfect example of this art.

Hunter Shea has introduced me to many monsters that I never knew about; in this case he reintroduces me to, perhaps, the most famous monster on the face of the earth. I am a

Loch Ness Revenge is another monster masterpiece from Hunter Shea! The story follows two siblings as they hunt down the aquatic beast that killed their parents. There's plenty of Loch Ness lore to go around and, of course, Shea puts his own twist on the legend. Shea's writing is getting better and better with each book, and in LNR his voice shines through. It's one of the best things about this novella. I'm really glad he opted for the first-person POV, as it totally worked for the story. Loch ...more

Natalie, her twin brother Austin and her parents were vacationing at Loch Ness, Scotland 20 years ago. One night while camping and roasting marshmallows, Natalie and Austin heard a splash of water followed by screams. When they arrived at the shore, they see a creature in the water killing her parents. Forward wind to the present. Natalie is now camped out on that very shore trying to prove the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.

And kill it.

OK. Now that kind of bugged me right there. I grew up

Nessie. Poor Nessie! What did Hunter Shea do? Hunter Shea turned her into a monster.

Loch Ness Revenge was good fun, though! As children, Natalie and Austin watched their parents get sucked under by Nessie. Now they are setting out to kill her.

You've never seen Nessie like this before!

I received a copy of this book as part of the publicity tour hosted by the awesome Erin Al-Mehairi. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novella. I did not receive any form of compensation for my review.

Loch Ness Revenge creature feature you don't want to miss! Hunter Shea excels at writing characters who are realistic and easy to identify with, and taking cryptids out of legend and inserting them straight into your nightmares. Natalie and her twin, Austin, are fun to follow as

Sometimes the expectations and anticipation one has for a book are not met and that causes heightened disappointment. I've enjoyed several of Hunter Shea's books, so I was enthused to purchase this one several months in advance of my vacation and take it with me to Loch Ness and read it in in the vicinity. None of the descriptions in the book let me believe that the author had ever been close or researched it very carefully. The story is a first-person narration from a female viewpoint (that's ...more

Each time I read a book by Hunter I think it's my favorite, until I read the next one. This was fun as hell and I loved the protagonist, Nat. She was a great character, with a great personality. She's the kind of kick ass, super cool lady anyone would love to hang with. The story was fun, crazy and balls to the walls with action. In the end, you really can't go wrong when you grab a book from Hunter Shea.

I’ve watched a lot of movies and read a lot of books about the Loch Ness Monster and couldn’t wait to see how Hunter spun this legend.

Your thrown right into the thick of things from the first chapter. Poor twins, Austin and Natalie, witness the horrific attack and death of their parents by a creature risen from the depths of Loch Ness. Some twenty years later the twins set out to destroy the creature. Little do they know it’s not just one beast that swims the depths, waiting for hapless victims

I love Hunter Shea's writing and his books. this was a really, really good one. A great point of view from a different aspect and wonderful. I wanted to finish it to see what happens, then was very sad when I did finish it.

I never knew that Nessy was mean! When Natalie and Austin were kids, their family went camping on Loch Ness in Scotland. One night, their parents went down to the water and the kids heard screaming. Running down to the Loch, they saw a large creature wrapped around the parents' necks, squeezing their heads and then dragging them down in to the water. Unfortunately, no one believed the story of the two traumatized children that watched their parents die.

Unnerving Magazine Review
Deeper in lore than in water, the Loch Ness Monster, Nessie, is a well of possibilities when it comes to stories. Here is Nessie living and hungry, but this time she is not alone.
Revenge is the special on the menu, family style with a side of German sausage. Specifically, a sister and brother, plus a man named Henrik, and eventually a dude named Ray as well, demand retribution for lives taken. The lake monster took the parents of the siblings constrictor-style a lifetime

I am a huge fan of Hunter Shea's novels and novellas. I love the way he can take a familiar legend - see The Jersey Devil and The Montauk Monster, for example - and present a unique twist. Loch Ness revenge accomplishes just that. A sister and brother are out to avenge the murders, by the Loch Ness monster, of their parents years earlier. They come well equipped for World War III let alone a 'prehistoric' predator which only they can actually say they've seen. The trouble is there is far more ...more
Natalie and Austin were only kids when they witnessed their parents being killed on the shores of Loch Ness by the legendary monster. Nobody would believe their story and they have spent their lives saying nothing about it...and quietly planning their revenge. Natalie has been living beside the loch, waiting for any proof that the monster is back, hunting with bait to see if it is there, waiting for the moment she can call her brother to say it is time for payback.

So bad it was hilarious

In all honesty, that was what I came here looking for. After reading The Jersey Devil (review linked here!), I knew that Shea truly had the gift of making ridiculously horrible books that were just too funny to hate. I have a feeling that they might have been written seriously, and not for amusement, but in all honesty, I just couldn't stop laughing.

The twins' backstory was completely unbelievable, and I found it hard to

I love a good monster in the water story and this one fits the bill.
Hunter Shea has already solidified himself as a Go-To author for me. His devotion to bringing back old school monster horror hit close to my heart and will forever keep me interested and returning to his output. I am incredibly passionate about cryptozoology and all of the creatures that entails, and Shea has carved a nice place for himself as a horror novelists exploring all the possibilities those cryptids have to offer.

The first chapter seemed to keep switching between present and past tense. Twins witness their parents killed by presumably the Loch Ness monster while on holiday. We jump ahead to the twins grown up and settle into mostly present tense.

Natalie is obsessed with hunting down the monster that killed her parents, with the obvious difficulty that most people don't believe Nessie exists. Eventually her brother joins in the hunt after not seeing each other for several years. They've grown up and have

Another fantastic cryptozoological book from Hunter Shea. This guy continues to amaze me. He’s part Josh Gates and part Fox Mulder. He wants to believe!!
I’ve always thought of the Loch Ness Monster (Nessie) as a benevolent, quiet creature (should it exist of course)
But Hunter Shea turns that theory completely upside down and inside out. These suckers in Loch Ness Revenge are mean, nasty, man-eating creatures. Not so benevolent.

Loch Ness Revenge by by Hunter Shea is about a brother and sister twins who are taking revenge on the Nessie that killed their parents.


Plot 2/5: This could have been an interesting plot of revenge, but it just didn't make sense. I kept wondering why so many Nessies had never been seen. I think the amount of Nessies should have been kept to a minimum for the story to be more believable.

Characters 3/5: The characters could have used a bit more fleshing out.
