A group of young adults finds themselves shipwrecked on an island inhabited by nightmarish creatures in the horror-filled fantasy novel Dreamshores (Monster Island) by Mike Robinson. Sierra Nevada Smith has been fascinated with monster books and movies since she was very young. Intrigued by the work of a great artist in the film industry, Sierra studies every aspect of his genius, intending to follow in his footsteps. However, after giving him one of her videos and never hearing anything from the celebrity, Sierra considers quitting. While working on a yacht in the South Pacific, an eerie fog encompassing the boat transports Sierra and her fellow travelers to another dimension that alters their reality. An immense sea creature sinks their ship and everyone who survives the attack races to safety on the shores of an unknown island. But are they saved? Creatures suggestive of the monster films that Sierra is obsessed with stalk them the moment one of them sets foot on the sand. Could Sierra be the cause of their horrifying predicament? Will anyone make it off the island alive?
With a hint of the paranormal, Dreamshores (Monster Island) by Mike Robinson is a riveting fantasy novel filled with monsters. With its eldritch fog, bizarre beasts, and altered reality, this exciting and spine-tingling book captures the essence of an Alfred Hitchcock thriller or an episode of The Twilight Zone. It is a creative and brilliantly written novel with compelling characters and extraordinary circumstances unfolding within a dynamic, action-filled plot. From start to finish, it is impossible to put the book down. I recommend it to everyone who relishes eerie monster-filled fantasies.
