Publisher's Summary

Bigfoot is real. Yancy Lazarus - mage, bluesman, and rambler - knows because there happens to be a nine-foot-tall, walking myth standing in the road, flagging him down.
Yancy just can't escape his reputation as a supernatural fix-it man even when cruising through the forgotten backwoods of Montana. Turns out Bigfoot has a serious problem on his hands: one of his own has gone rogue, developing a taste for the flesh of humans and Sasquatch alike. A greater Wendigo has risen for the first time in thousands of years and if Yancy can't stop the creature it could be a slaughter for the residents of a rural Montana town.
But even with the monstrous threat looming on the horizon, Yancy has bigger fish to fry. He's working as an agent of Fate, attempting to put the kibosh on a nefarious scheme, aimed at upsetting the tenuous balance between the supernatural nations. When your boss is Lady Luck, however, nothing is ever left to chance, and his two cases may have more in common than it appears. If he can't figure out the missing link it could usher in a new world order: an age of inhuman creatures and walking where Yancy Lazarus doesn't exist.

Can you smell what the Wendigo is Cookin'???

I really, really, really want to see a meeting between Sandman Slim and Yancy Lazarus. They have so much in common that they would just hate each other. I know I have said it before, that he out Harry's Harry Dresden, and while it is true I believe deep in my soul that he'd make a great companion for Stark right up until they tried to kill each other.

Speaking of Dresden, you may have seen that he had three short stories about Bigfoot. All three were stinkers in my opinion. They have been the weakest of the Dresden Files. Conversely, Yancy's tale about Bigfoot is a rocket ride into insanity, the fun kind, not the explodey sad kind.

No, the tale of a rampaging Wendigo alone would be enough for me to endorse this book, but wait. . . . there's more!! There are actually 2 tales that mesh and interwine (sadly for Yancy) that leave our hero in a serious bind. It seems that these two seperate events may not be so seperate either, and that Yancy is in more danger than he knows.

My appreciation of Yancy improves with each book. I just sort of fell into Urban fantasy, and thankfully got lucky with Yancy being there to carry the Urban load, so to speak. Hunter really elevates the genre, and rethinks it with every novel. The books and Yancy continue to improve with every release, and sets a bar for the next book to climb over. So far, I see no sign of this series slowing down or getting stale.

Kevin is solid in his narration, sometimes he gets a little quick, but that is the emotion coming out. He knows how to pace action, and his cadence is perfect. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

Yancy is good all the way all the time!

Yancy… sigh. Be still my beating heart. Yancy is my new Harry Dresden. Yancy still drinking, smoking, gambling and swearing to much but can still wield the mist. Even when faced with the legendary Bigfoot people, Yancy faces the situation with caustic charm while wielding fire.

Yancy makes new friends (Bigfoot people) while trying to deal the betrayal of another. The action is always the best when Yancy has tired himself and everything is on the line. He always has one more thing to pull out of his hat.

If you have not read a Yancy novel and are a fan of Harry Dresden, you will like this.
