The future is looking bright for Sidney Moore as she as she gets ready to leave the small island of Benediction behind for one of Boston’s top veterinary programs. There are some bumps in the road to navigate—her father’s recovery from a debilitating stroke, and her own guilt for ending her relationship with her high school boyfriend, and having to leave behind her deaf German shepherd, Snowy—but she’s always been strong willed, with a passion to achieve her life’s dreams.

Now a storm is bearing down on Benediction—a hurricane that will bring devastating winds and rain, rising tides…and something else.

Something deadly. Something that will transform all the things that creep, crawl, and flutter into instruments of terror and death.

The future is looking bright for Sidney Moore. All she has to do is survive the storm.


Thank you Simon and Schuster for sending me a copy of Savage for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

I normally do not read thrillers but this on spoke to me. While reading this book I could not sleep and was shaking like a leaf. It took me a bit to stop staring into every crack in my house. Thank you Thomas for that. I also really enjoyed the different POV's from others in the town so you got a complete picture of everything that was happening.

I however, did not think this story was singularly focused on Sidney and I also believe this story is more then a YA novel. I think this is for adults too. I think my favorite POV and most creepy was the hoarder. I was like omg I used to love watching that show and the author gave a perfect visual. Then imagine something creepy going down in that mess. I was glued.

This is a must read for thriller fans and those who are reluctant thriller readers. I wish the ending had been as creepy as the beginning and kept that level. I think the one upping what was already creepy was not necessary but that was very minor and only happened in the last couple chapters. This however would be my number one thriller recommended book and I already have my father reading it who is a huge fan of thrillers.
