Book #4: Releasing La Lechuza by A.K. Dickerson

Releasing La Lechuza
A.K. Dickerson

Are You Brave Enough To Explore Crystal Mountain?

Everyone in Escape had heard the legend of La Lechuza. The eerie cries at night, hikers that disappear with only bones found scattered along the base of the mountain. Tales of Spanish Conquistadors who chased the owl-witch into the cave systems of Crystal Mountain hundreds of years ago has been enough to keep citizens and visitors alike from setting foot on Crystal Mountain. No one has seen the owl-witch, but all have heard her terrifying cries at night. Theme park developer Cole Jackson is determined to put the legend of La Lechuza to rest once and for all by building an underground theme park inside of Crystal Mountain. When a team of university students is sent into Crystal Mountain Caves to determine suitability for the project, they encounter a beast their zoology classes never prepared them for. La Lechuza is real and she is angry, hungry, and ready to be released.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy from one of the authors for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation for this review.

I jumped at this story solely on the fact that it was a horror novella. It didn’t hurt that the monster of the book was La Lechuza.

For those who do not know the story, La Lechuza is an urban legend. The legend goes is that a witch gave her soul to the devil. According to legend, people will see a half owl- half woman creature. This is Lechuza.

If this is a disturbing image, A.K. Dickerson, an author duo, prove to make the image even more disturbing with the deaths of the characters.

The story is filled with an ensemble cast, each figure with their own motivations and struggles. The group come together to study the wildlife and plants of a mountainous cave. In the process, they get more than what they wanted.

As I was reading this novella, I felt a bit of a monster movie nostalgia. I am big on monster movies and the mix of gore horror with monster movie feel really grabbed me. Now, let me rephrase that, I don’t mean SyFy or Kaiju monster (though I love those), I mean there is a monster movie feel that is similar to the black and white movies. Not Dracula but not Them. Sort of in the middle. Whatever the case may be, I had that feel and it was great.

The story is gory but not enough to really deter you from the reading. If anything, it just enhances the feeling of fear. The story is simple but enjoyable and it doesn’t prevent you from forming a relationship with one of the characters. I personally liked Sofia and Roman the best.

All in all, I enjoyed the novella and will be reading more from the authors.

Final Rating: 3/5

Blurb:

Sno is no ordinary Faye, nor is she a mere daughter of the moon. She was born with birthmarks that mirror the Goddess Ayana herself. For some, the birthmarks represent a blessing, a savior of the Faye. But to those who fear her power, the marks are a sign of a curse. For Sno, the marks represent who she is and serve as a constant reminder of what she could become.

Sno finds herself at the center of a war. On one side are the Demons, led by a notorious Karter family. On the other side is every single race within their realm that ever stood against them.
