Of course, this still makes no sense until you look him up on IMDB and realize that the only screenply he's ever written was the adaptation of this book, which rights were purchased by Sylvester Stallone in 2009 with the intention of making it into Rambo V. Seriously.

Hulking and horrific, his slouched shoulders swelled beneath a vaguely human face and savage glare that his sleep was done-and that what he had once been was gone. As he entered the light he could be seen-hunched, tremendously muscular, hands slightly clutched. Long black talons extended from his fingers. He was distinctly mannish, though his bulk and brutal muscularity surpassed anything that could be called human. He would attack them at night, he had decided

One of Hollywood's hottest action-film writers, James Byron Huggins is a master at keeping the action rolling and the pages turning. Here, the author of Cain ("may be the thriller of the year" -- BookPage), unleashes a lightning-quick tale that pits a man born out of his time against the future's deadliest creation. Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone -- or anything -- on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation. It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he'll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.

A monstrous mutation kills at will in a remote area of Alaska, ripping apart research facilities and military personnel. Able to heal from nearly any wound and seemingly impervious to small arms fire, the beast with blended DNA leaves a path of destruction its government creators want to cover up at all cost. They put together a team of blooded special forces operatives, recruiting the most renown tracker in the world: Nathaniel Hunter. From the onset of the mission, Hunter realizes they stalk a nightmare creature never before seen.

The mutation, discovered during forensic tests, provide clues leading researchers to government secrets both dangerous to them and the world. A United States Deputy Marshal and his retired mentor search for the cause and effect at the direction of the Department of Justice, with each step mired in danger. Another master piece by James Byron Huggins.

This book has all the action you could ever ask for. The hero is a man almost unbelievable in his ability to adapt and conform to the wild country in which he resides. And this time he faces an implacable enemy; a construct of immense might and cunning. It will take everything he has - his wits, his strength, his wolf companion and the multiple abilities of his trusted comrades - to defeat an ever-evolving enemy.

Those who tend to read many novels will be glad to know this one is truly large and will take some time to devour.

There are only two downsides: there are a handful of editing mistakes that should be sorted out. Also, be aware that the digital edition (I read this with my Kindle app), isn't broken out as obviously as it needs to be. The scenes often change without warning - without a new page break, or new chapter indicator, or even a small line to indicate the ending of one scene and the start of another. For example: the "he" referred to in one chapter would be Hunter - our hero. In the next paragraph it changes to a "he" - referring to the enemy in a different locale. Should you read this with that in mind, you'll find yourself watching for those changes and won't be as confused as I was, initially. (It took me a few chapters to realize what was going on.)

Cheers - and enjoy the read!

I really cannot say enough about this book. I read four or five books a week and must say that there are a lot of stinkers out there. This book really captured me. I loved the hero, the strong silent type with a wolf as his main friend. I loved the villain, a super human powered with the strength and ferocity of prehumanity but with just enough knowledge of humanity to be able to think and plan and be dangerous. He was ferocious, fast, strong and with an insatiable urge to kill. He kept me on the edge of my chair. The plot could be stronger, but you really go half the book before you start to understand what is going on. The climax is great and like "Dune" where the slow knife pierces the protective shield, the beast must be fought with a Bowie knife up close, because it seem impervious to bullets. I liked the book enough that I immediately ordered a copy of "Cain," another book by the same author.

************* SOME SPOILERS **************

1. Amazing solemn Tracker who could be Native American or white or both. Check! (B movie instantly becomes an A movie IF... Ricky Mora {20 years ago} or Martin Sensmeier {present day} plays the lead)

2. Awesome mystical large wolf as sidekick. Check! (My favorite character)

3. Crazy white dude playing God. Check!

4. Military begging a civilian for help. Check!

5. Ragtag team of hit men and lone woman. Check! (Rangers, Seals, Special Ops, SWAT etc... They kick a$$ so in real life ragtag team wouldn't be needed)

6. Japanese dude or (minority) as Commander. Check! (I appreciate when authors go out of there element and add a rainbow coalition of cultures and races in their story)

7. Standard blonde hair, blue eyes white chic (that can melt hearts with one smile) as the lone female who immediately impresses and conveniently becomes the lead with main character. Check!

8. Generic white dude with racist overtones (but may not really racist) who blesses the lead character with his bad attitude and ability to aggravate. Check!

9. Reckless FBI / CIA AgentS who does what THEY please regardless of the consequences. Check!

10. Species that may or may not have been extinct for 20,000 years leaving dead bodies in its wake like bread crumbs. Check!

I re-read this great action thriller recently on my Kindle. I first read this thriller back in 99 or so. I loved it then and I still love it! From Hunter I branched out to all of his other thrillers like: Cain,Leviathan, and another of Huggins's thrillers I picked up a week ago: Reckoning. I have all these thrillers in trade paperback format, except for Hunter wouldn't you know. I plan to re-read The Reckoning one of these days (another Huggins book on my Profile Shelf).

I think I like this book because it has several elements of Predator in it: a hunt for a killer beast/monster, an elite military hand-picked squad, and the cold thick Alaskan forest instead of a hot steamy jungle. And then of course the cool character of Nathaniel Hunter himself and his companion "Ghost" (a rather large powerful wolf). A bit macho at times. but I don't care. Hunter comes across as a no-nonsense type of guy. Reading the book you come to believe he COULD track this creature and he COULD fight it, and he COULD win!

I love the cast of supporting characters as well: Bobbi Jo, a tough as nails female sniper, Taylor, the big weapons expert, and Takakura, a Japanese soldier as good with a katana as he is with modern weapons(yeah, the whole honor thing, but it works here), and a couple of kick butt Marshalls who show up at the end and join in the fighting. This book is ACTION, ACTION, and more ACTION! Reading it for the 2nd time was just as fun/exciting as the first time. I am looking forward to re-reading The Reckoning.
