Shamans in swampland. Evil creeples snag children and a duo of shamans save the day.
You won’t get lost in the second of this series by Mark Onspaugh although it would probably be helpful to read them in sequence.
The story of Deadlight Jack takes us into Louisiana swampland and is replete with giant Albino alligators, malingering ghosts, and other gruesome nasties. The writing seems a little scattered. The dialog, especially between Jimmy (Inuit shaman) and George when they are insulting one another, never truly gels.
After saying that, the book was still good enough that I kept reading and stayed up past my bedtime to finish.
