Review: Full Wolf Moon by Lincoln Child

The New York Times bestselling author of The Forgotten Room and Deep Storm is back with a new thriller that follows the trail of a killer who cannot exist . . . featuring Jeremy Logan, the renowned investigator of the supernatural and fantastic.

Legends, no matter how outlandish, are often grounded in reality. This has been the guiding principle behind the exhilarating career of Jeremy Logan, the “enigmalogist”–an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation–previously seen in The Forgotten Room, The Third Gate, and Deep Storm. Logan has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never been more true than now.
Logan travels to an isolated writers’ retreat deep in the Adirondacks to finally work on his book when the remote community is rocked by the grisly discovery of a dead hiker on Desolation Mountain. The body has been severely mauled, but the unusual savagery of the bite and claw marks call into question the initial suspicions of a wild bear attack. When Logan is asked to help investigate, he discovers no shortage of suspects capable of such an attack–and no shortage of locals willing to point the finger and spread incredible rumors. One rumor, too impossible to believe, has even the forest ranger believing in werewolves. As Logan gets to know the remote deep-woods landscape, including a respected woman scientist still struggling with the violent loss of her father in these very woods, Logan realizes he’s up against something he has never seen before.
His most action-packed and white-knuckled novel to date, Full Wolf Moon is the perfect combination of exotic locales, provocative science, and raw action that make for a deeply entertaining Lincoln Child blockbuster.

*Sigh* I have a real love/hate with Jeremy Logan series. Interesting main character. Always interesting premise. But… the execution of plot often tend to…. fall a part. :/ Sadly, Full Wolf Moon suffers from the same things.

I’m not even sure where to even start??! -.- Full Wolf Moon is probably my least fave in the series so far.

The plot is lacking and way too coincidental to be believable. D: The villain is so obvious. As soon as the person is first introduced, it is clear. Also, very coincidental…. It is just frustratingly bad. 😐 Whhhhhyyyyyyy???

Through the whole book (and a pivotal part of the plot!), a group of people are mentioned often. BUT, who is this group? It is never fully explained until then very end! Is this a family? Outcasts? A carny freak show? The way it is brought up at first, it sounded like it was a group of people pushed off their land or something, like an indigenous tribe? Huh? It was too unclear and confusing?

The plot is OK, just not much is there. A weak hook to draw you in, and the story is just too unbelievable. That is just BAD writing from a very talented writer. I don’t understand what happened with Full Wolf Moon. :/ Definitely may least favorite in the series. Hopefully the next book, which is on my TBR pile, will be better? 😐

This book was just not very good. D: I did not have fun with it. At least it was quick…..? D:
