The final installation of Savage Species has now been released, and what a ride it is!
The violence is stepped up, the fear is stepped up, and the excitement and suspense are turned to 11 on the dial.
I guess the biggest compliment I can give with this is to say, I hate you Jonathan Janz, I hate you so much!
You don’t get a lot of answers here. For instance, I still don’t know exactly why one of the Children took Charly’s son, or where these things came from, but you do get a sense of why the appeared at the time they did, and also find out a bit more about the NightFlyers.
One thing is for sure though, this creature feature is left wide open for a sequel or even a prequel explaining where these things came from.
The Bottom Line: If you’ve missed the first four, buy them now. If you are on the fence about this, then hop off and buy it. It’s a classic creature feature story in five parts that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You can look for the complete volume coming September 3rd if you want to wait to digest them all. I for one, would just go ahead and buy the volumes and devour them like the Children devoured the folks of Peaceful Valley.
Order the final installment of Savage Species right here.
