The story is very well written and pulls you along. The world is believable, along with the characters. I really wanted to know more about the characters throughout the story and we get little hints throughout. The ending was a twist that left me wanting more. I especially wanted to know more about Sirun and her past.
The story is told during a police station interview, in which Harry, our magical private investigator, explains what happened to cause Bigfoot to rampage about campus. The story itself filled with twists and turns until the very end. The characters are well written and draw you into the story. There is some adult content towards the end of the story, but it’s not extremely explicit, in my opinion.
This is a thriller, murder mystery at heart. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It seems the story started previously, so reading that work probably would have greatly enhanced my enjoyment of this one. There is also a scene with adult content. I found that it was a bit overdone and a tad too explicit for my tastes.
