The monsters live inside of Kate Woodson. Chronic pain and a host of autoimmune diseases have robbed her of a normal, happy life. Her husband Andrew's surprise of their dream Maine lake cottage for the summer is the gift of a lifetime. It's beautiful, remote, idyllic, a place to heal.

But they are not alone. Something is in the woods, screeching in the darkness, banging on the house, leaving animals for dead. Just like her body, Kate's cottage becomes her prison. She and Andrew must fight to survive the creature that lurks in the dead of night.

The Flame Tree Press fiction imprint from Flame Tree Publishing brings together brilliant new authors and the more established; the award winners and exciting, original voices.

Subtle brutality with a heart

There's a subtleness to the horror that Hunter Shea paints with his latest novel. You know it's coming. You're expecting it to come at any moment. The story is building to its climax and then wham. It hits you between the eyes. You know something is coming and that it's going to be horrific, but it still catches you by surprise. One could say that this book is just as much a love story as it is a horror story. The main characters have horrific circumstances that they have to overcome that can hit very close to home. The manifestation of pain and suffering revealed in the main couple's relationship was both beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Great characters. Great story. Fantastic ending. Wonderful narration from Lance Fuller. I have loved everything I've read by Shea so far and Creature doesn't end that streak. This may be my favorite book by Shea so far. It only makes me want to read more of his work.

So Awful

The narrator did a great job with the miserable dumpsterfire he had to work with.

but this story is just not okay...I feel like a really clever 7th grader wrote it with no idea how plot, suspense, continuity, or horror work in a story.

You will love this book if you want to listen to 9 hours of crying about a horrible disease ravaging a woman, followed by 15 interesting minutes of family time and a final 2 hours of totally left field creature feature entirely devoid of any semblance of sense...

Wow. Just wow

Andrew is trying to give Kate the best end of life he can. Kate is young and is dying, nothing can help, so her husband Andrew rents a cabin on Round Lake in Maine with practically no one around for miles, allowing Kate the peace and solitude to rest.
That is all I can say without spoilers. My emotions are boiling over and...Aghhhh!! I can’t talk about it. Hunter! You... mmmmm... biting my lip.. tensing up... please just go get this and read or listen to it because WTH!!

Like a slow burning block of C4.

this story had alot of potential, but none of that potential was taken advantage of.
