    One thought on “Monsters In Our Wake”

    1. This review appeared first on Sci Fi Scary.Monsters in Our Wake is my second read from J.H Moncrieff I just can t pass up the potential for a good sea monster story And this one had something other than a giant squid or megalodon on the cover Not that there s wrong with either of this So, yes, even though I wasn t thrilled with my last read from the author, I was than willing to give this one a go.I m normally not a fan of authors anthropomorphising monsters However, in Monsters in Our Wake, Mo [...]

    2. 3.5 starsMONSTERS IN OUR WAKE A Deep Sea Thriller, by J.H Moncrieff, takes a unique perspective on a legendary sea monster s confrontation with a human crew out drilling for oil The use of alternating points of view gives readers a chance to look at this first hand from two opposing sides The had the gift of plentitude, but I had two things they did not Wisdom and Patience Infinite, infinite patience I have to admit that the characterization of the crew especially the only female on board, Flor [...]

    3. Wonderful story with an unexpected point of view without spoiling anything for new readers, this book strays from the typical monster horror story to give you a unique perspective Absolutely loved this and definitely recommend it

    4. This book caught me off guard and I m glad I was expecting a great monster story but got something else entirely Don t get me wrong, a lot of the classic monster elements are there, but the differences make all the difference.The story is about a strange connection between an ancient sea creature and a marine geologist As a single mother, Flora takes a job on an oil rig purely for the money, but between her anxiety and the machismo on the ship, it doesn t take long to wonder if it s worth it.The [...]

    5. I have to admit I had my doubts when I began reading Ms Moncrieff s Monsters In Our Wake I m a huge fan of multiple character POV storytelling and this book has three main characters But, um, one of them is the sea monster himself The fact he comes across like an urbane snooty was a little offsetting At first I should ve had faith in Ms Moncrieff s storytelling abililties She and the book won me over It s a fast moving, suspenseful, surprising thrill ride about oil drillers out on the ocean stum [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this quick read J.H Moncrieff brings about a different element that was surprising but enjoyable I found I wanted to keep reading right from the beginning and the characters instantly reeled me in.

    7. Monsters in our Wake is exactly that a deep sea thriller Flora Duchovney is the only woman aboard an oil drilling ship, the Cormorant She s a marine geologist, helping the crew find the right place to drill When the drill suddenly snaps off and they pull it up, she s the first to notice the enormous teeth marks on it Moncrieff tells this story from the perspective of both the Sea Creature and the crew, mostly Flora The Sea Creatures are none too happy about their home being invaded The tension b [...]

    8. Wow this book blew my mind I started reading it intending to just do a couple chapters, and before I knew it, it was three in the morning and I was saying Holy % to myself as I read the ending with a twist that I never saw coming It s a brilliant take on the Man vs Sea Monster story that will leave you wondering just who the real monsters are The writing is great, with hints of Stephen King and some lovely dark humour The characters are complex and realistic, with not a single one dimensional st [...]

    9. This is the first book I ve read by the author and it makes me want to read by her Monsters in Our Wake is a suspenseful, thrilling and scary in a good way book about the monsters that lurk in the sea The kind of monsters you hope never to meet I found it to be a compulsive read and didn t want to put it down until I found out what happened to the heroine of the story, a plucky geologist who struggles with working far away from home on an oil drilling ship, as well as having to deal with an all [...]

    10. Some people think of space as the final frontier but we have another unexplored area that is a lot closer to us The deepest part of the ocean is still a mystery and who knows what kind of creatures live down there In the deep waters of the South Pacific an oil drilling ship is about to find what lurks bellow and they will be very sorry they disturbed it The ship lowers its drill into the territory of a family of Nokkens who hate humans with a passion.The Nokkens are intelligent than humans thin [...]

    11. Plesiosaurs are smarter than we think.At first read I thought I would not finish this story However, I am glad I gave it a chance Very unusual monster in the water story Very original ideas Think jaws and alien put together Interesting characters all of them This would make a very different type of movie I can recommend this book Just remember I read books for entertainment, I overlook little things and move on I don t enjoy nitpicking books This has a few flaws, but I enjoyed the ride immensely [...]

    12. My first book by this Author and I must say I am now a fan Wow, what a neat twist to an old idea about sea creatures I was so captivated that I did not a single thing all day but read this story and fed my poor neglected dog I would recommend this book to those on the fence It is a pretty quick and easy read with an addicting story line Kudo s J H Moncrieff

    13. I read this book over the course of just a couple days and kept having to force myself to put it away and go to bed The suspense is immediate The characters draw you in right away And the perspective is one I ve never read before.The story alternates between the creatures below the surface and the humans above, following a female marine geologist on a boat full of rough sailors Who are the villains and where is the danger coming from Well s not always the places you ll expect.

    14. Here s a writer that gives us just what we need What I mean is that Moncrieff gets us right into the crux of the story without any fluff Her descriptions are vivid and well placed What s really impressive is how she creates a pretty large cast of different characters without overwhelming the reader There s a gradual reveal as we naturally get to know them Moncrieff doesn t need to give us the full back story of everyone, but gives us enough to get an understanding of what makes them tick We get [...]

    15. Monsters In Our Wake is another captivating tale from J.H Moncrieff In my opinion, Moncrieff successfully manages to take a fairly classic story and turn it into something completely her own Even though the characters aren t always on the same side, I found myself rooting for most of them especially the monster, which made for some great, tension filled scenes There are also some great elements of horror and fantasy that completely suit the unique tone of the story As I read, I found that I only [...]

    16. Will anyone make it out of this insanity alive A crew is trapped on a damaged ship in monster infested waters, and the monsters are angry Alliances are uneasy ones Friendships are fragile Monsters aren t what they seem Death is everywhere, all the time, waiting No one is ever safe Monsters in Our Wake is a thrilling, frightening, well paced, excellent read Moncrieff builds suspense masterfully, teasing the reader without revealing the full scope of each catastrophe about to unfold, leading up to [...]

    17. As I found from her previous novella, The Bear Who Wouldn t Leave, J.H Moncrieff writes unusual horror She takes a well known trope in this case an ancient, gigantic sea creature and creates a whole new perspective I loved the way the plot and characters developed, and the change in point of view worked exceptionally well as it could have easily fallen flat in less capable hands I read the whole story in one riveting read and loved it.

    18. J.H Moncrieff has a knack for making us wonder who the monsters really are Much like in, The Bear Who Wouldn t Leave, Moncrieff reveals the dark side of many characters who may not be the most obvious villain at the onset In Monsters in Our Wake, we get the feeling of impending doom throughout the book, through all the tragic character flaws, fateful decisions and the tension and unease in every scene The suspense kept me reading and I finished the whole book in only 2 sittings I would highly re [...]

    19. This was a lot of fun A Nessie type Leviathan is accidently angered when an oil drilling ship begins drilling right near his home, somewhere in the hugely isolated area of the South Pacific, where his family himself, wife and son have been living for thousands and thousands of years It was a bad mistake on the human s part, and they paid dearly for it.This story is told from both the human and creature s point of view, so very different, and extremely entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed it If you [...]

    20. We are going to need a bigger boat Interesting novel which takes into consideration the thoughts of the sea creatures whose geographic area is imperiled by man invading looking for oil,etc.Who are the real monsters,manor these creatures.

    21. My favorite thing about any story by J.H is her ability to captivate your imagination and make you believe in beautiful, fantastical things, even in the midst of a horror story Monsters In Our Wake was especially suspenseful for me as the ocean has always scared me, with its great depths and mysteries The creatures, like many in her writings, were equal parts scary and endearing I love the idea of magic, and fantastic beasts so having the story be from the creatures POV occasionally was a wonder [...]

    22. Review copyThe cover and title of J.H Moncrieff s latest novel Monsters In Our Wake gives the reader a good idea of what they re in for, but this work is far from your typical sea creature trope.When the novel you re reading begins from the perspective of a giant sea creature who s home is being threatened by oil drilling you know you re on to something different.When the creature takes action to protect its territory, the result is a disabled ship and a stranded crew I always enjoy stories with [...]

    23. Here s a writer that gives us just what we need What I mean is that Moncrieff gets us right into the crux of the story without any fluff Her descriptions are vivid and well placed What s really impressive is how she creates a pretty large cast of different characters without overwhelming the reader There s a gradual reveal as we naturally get to know them Moncrieff doesn t need to give us the full back story of everyone, but gives us enough to get an understanding of what makes them tick We get [...]

    24. The story follows a likable heroine, marine geologist Flora Duchovney, who is on an explorer ship full of male sailors who already put her down because she s a female but they further disregard her as just a crazy woman after one of their massive oil drill bits is destroyed by what Flora insists must be a sentient being A very dangerous one, at that Turns out, it s an sea monster called N kken N kken is not just a monster, he s actually an equal character in the novel, as chapters switch back fo [...]

    25. After reading and thoroughly enjoying J.H Moncrieff s release, The Bear Who Wouldn t Leave, I ventured into her deep sea dramatic horror piece, Monsters in our Wake Her world of sentient sea creatures paired with a daring crew of sailors is such a thrilling place, I didn t want to leave it once the book ended In an unexpected move, J.H incorporates the sea creatures point of view into her tale, which gives their involvement in the encounter huge amounts of added depth and meaning I loved this bo [...]

    26. Providing fresh meet in the category of the sea monsters in horror motif is JH Moncrieff s novelMonsters in Our Wake Like the novel Grendel by John Gardner, it showcases the point of view of the monster She tells a compelling tale, almost as if we could see into the head of the whale in Moby Dick or the shark from Jaws If you recently enjoyed The Deep by Nick Cutter and love your horror Lovecraftian, or just can t get enough of sea monsters and want a story that has plenty of twists and turns to [...]

    27. A sentient, caring monster is a new twist on monster from the deep stories However, I can t say that I cared for it Each chapter alternates between the monster who wants to live and let live even though his wife has a short fuse and the geologist on an oil drilling barge who knows it s wrong to disturb their home, but who is chronically short of money The pay is good, so she puts her misgivings aside People get killed but I found myself skipping from one chapter to the next, so the story never m [...]

    28. I wanted to like this book I love any book that has a sea creature, especially one of unknown origin, but this one was poorly written The most unbearable thing was the way the author wrote from the point of view of the creature It referred to its mate as its wife and was unbelievably self aware in a human way.

    29. Ok Weird when creatures are talking like married couple Loaded with action Would not read again Kind of gross at times.
