Publisher's Summary

If you think monsters are don't know jack!
Wisecracking cryptozoologist Dr. Obadiah "Jack" Jackson has hunted plenty of dangerous creatures over the years. But he finds a lot more than he bargained for when he travels to Malaysia to save a beautiful missionary and her village from being ravaged by ghoulish, blood-feeding monsters straight from local legend known as the jenglot.
The jenglot are very dangerous, elusive, and intelligent. But that's the least of Jack's troubles. Others besides the blood-crazed cryptids want Jack dead as well...a local witchdoctor threatened by the missionary's message of hope and a mysterious guerilla leader who seems to have a dark and secret agenda. Jack and his team must keep their wits about them to escape the jenglot and discover the answers to the deep mysteries surrounding their existence.

Their are not many authors that I choose to listen to rather than sleep but Kent Holloway has been added to that short list. Primal Thirst is fantastic, action-packed from the get go with characters that you can't help but love. Some moments had my jaw hanging open, I'm pretty good at seeing twists but the twists in this book threw me big time and it was awesome.
Kiff VandenHeuvel did a wonderful job, especially with Jack - he portrayed him just as I imagined when I read the book. Smart, funny, sarcastic, charming. Pure entertainment.

Sweet adventure story

Primal Thirst is a wonderful tale, sort of like an Indy kind of adventure, but the characters and story are all their own. Holloway creates like able/hate able characters, and Kiff VandenHeuvel's narration adds the sarcasm and wit to Jack's telling of the story. Very cool!
