Somewhat formulaic.


Final Fiendish Findings?

Wade Boss: Hybrid Hunter is intended for teens and young adults, and I think it will do well with that audience, as it has that fast paced, danger filled formula that is so popular with that age group. Even slightly younger readers can enjoy the antics of Wade Boss, as there is no objectionable content, making it a book the whole family can enjoy. He is one of those characters that is both easy to relate to and larger than life at the same time, perfect for a story of saving the world, one hybrid at a time.

This old school cowboy is hunting a high tech threat…

Wade Boss is a man at once both simple and complex. A native Texan, he has the tenets of the cowboy creed all sewn up; respect for family, respect for God, and respect for animals. Of course, having grown up in the circus as the son of a tiger trainer, Wade is anything but your average cowboy. After learning the ropes of the family business, he struck out on his own, building a successful career as a stuntman in Hollywood. By the time we meet Wade, though, he has retired from the stuntman business to open a ranch dedicated to training wild animals for use in films, television shows, and commercials.

With a beautiful girlfriend, a spacious ranch, and a job doing what he loves, Wade seemingly has the life he’s always wanted. And then – one phone call changes his life forever. There are things in this world that the general public is better off not knowing off, or so the secretive government agency who enlists Wade’s services believes. There are deadly creatures roaming the countryside, and Wade seems to have a particular talent for taking them alive. And so, with his cowboy sense of obligation warring with his professional and private life, Wade Boss: animal trainer quickly becomes Wade Boss: hybrid hunter.

Wade Boss: Hybrid Hunter reads like your favorite action movie. From handsome cowboys with deadly weapons to mysterious genetically altered animals to southern belles and romance, this book has it all. And while it may not be a groundbreaking concept, it makes up for that in spades by being just plain fun to read. There is non-stop action, as you never know when a hybrid is going to turn up and spoil Wade’s well planned day. There is intrigue. Who is responsible for these unnatural creatures? How have they accomplished what the scientifically impossible? And, most importantly, why are they releasing them? There is even a bit of a love triangle, with just enough mild romance to keep things interesting.

Wade Boss: Hybrid Hunter is intended for teens and young adults, and I think it will do well with that audience, as it has that fast paced, danger filled formula that is so popular with that age group. Even slightly younger readers can enjoy the antics of Wade Boss, as there is no objectionable content, making it a book the whole family can enjoy.
