    1. I was fortunate to receive a copy of Progeny by Patrick C Greene for review I stress fortunate in this case When doing reviews, it can be a real mixed bag There are times where it becomes a real drudgery to finish something However, that is not the case here.For those of you who are tired of generic characters and horror that is driven solely by violence, THIS is the book for you It is so much than standard horror fare and Mr Greene is very adept at building tension between his characters, bala [...]

    2. I ve been meaning to read this one for a while, gotta love a good Sasquatch story And that s exactly what this was too, surprisingly good, very solid writing, likable or very much not likable but always three dimensional characters, strong pacing and just overall engaging storytelling Turns out the only thing dangerous than Philadelphia streets are the locals on the remote mountain rural area Can t help but compare it to Jeff Strand s superb Dweller, but this is a really different story, good i [...]

    3. Though I m sure to upset some authors and publishers who, understandably, want five star reviews, I ve my own definition of the five star system One Star A crime against God and man Two Stars Poor, or otherwise not ready for publication Three Stars A solid work worth the money read Four Stars A superior, award worthy achievement Five Stars A standard setter, a work to stand the test of time, a work to be studied and read again and again Progeny, by Patrick C Greene.The title made the sale And it [...]

    4. Review of Progeny by Patrick GreeneWhat an astounding novel is this I went in expecting horror and horror I got but also literate, character evolving, coming of age not just in the two young boys, but also in the person of one of the boy s father , cultural and traditional clashes, the shifting tectonic plates of the established Appalachian culture of centuries against the modern ecology preserving approach although this latter approach was present in the indigenous tribes from their very begin [...]

    5. Finished this one just last night It would be your typical hunters stumble on monsters hunters bad, monster misunderstood book, butPatrick does an excellent job bringing his characters to life What could have been a simple tale turns out to be complex on several levels.

    6. SPOILER ALERTA couple weeks back when Mr Turning the Pages went to a friend s house one evening I commandeered his iPad and set about reading Progeny one of the Kindle freebies that I had downloaded for Mr Turning the Pages to read After looking the book up on I couldn t start reading the book fast enough.It s no secret at all that I enjoy a good monster novel especially when the monster happens to be Big Foot Honestly how can anyone not love a horror novel featuring one of the most iconic monst [...]

    7. I ve encountered this author s work once before in the introductory volume of The Endlands anthology My reintroduction to the author with this book has been a fantastic experience Patrick C Greene s Progeny takes us to woods of North Carolina, where an up and coming writer moves from the big city to the country Not long after his arrival, he discovers that there is to the peaceful mountains than he first realizes A series of ominous encounters with mysterious figures haunting the countryside ev [...]

    8. It s about love and fear and self doubt and self preservation If you are a father or a son, or a woman who has ever loved a man who was a father or a son you should read this 5 stars

    9. PDF free via author for honest reviewThis book was a great read and I did so in a matter of one day I just couldn t put it down My hate for the character of Zane and his fellow hunting buddies grew and grew and I just had to see if they met a bad end, because they deserved one I cherished the character of Owen and his son Chuck who are striving to build and keep a relationship of father son even though Owen is so far away from Chuck and he has divorced Chuck s Mom The secret comes out about why [...]

    10. An intriguing novel of parents and their children, Patrick Greene s Progeny follows two dysfunctional families and their interactions as reclusive author Owen Sterling brings his eleven year old son to stay with him in the woods The son, brought up by his mother after the parents separate, presents himself as a mystery to his father Meanwhile other fathers prove mysterious to their sons, and all are wrapped in the overarching mystery of Indian tribal lands where Owen lives and Zane Carver longs [...]

    11. Owen Sterling is a reclusive author living in a secluded house deep in the woods.This is not the usual Man comes face to face with monster and runs screaming from woods tale It is a story about family told between species I love it when a writer brings a legend to life but does not belabor the possibilities of the legend It is a well told tale with a bit of gore included I would not recommend it to the under fourteen age group I would recommend it to every one else who enjoys a good read and doe [...]

    12. This is a story about father son relationships than one about Bigfoot Never the less, it kept my interest throughout, and had good character development The characters are believable and the plot moves along well It s a relatively short book would have been a 5 star book if the author had given time and attention to developing the Bigfoot characters, as he did with his human protagonists.

    13. Spoiler Alert A couple weeks back when Mr Turning the Pages went to a friend s house one evening I commandeered his iPad and set about reading Progeny one of the Kindle freebies that I had downloaded for Mr Turning the Pages to read After looking the book up on I couldn t start reading the book fast enough.It s no secret at all that I enjoy a good monster novel especially when the monster happens to be Big Foot Honestly how can anyone not love a horror novel featuring one of the most iconic mons [...]

    14. From the very fist page I was drawn into this amazing book I have to admit this is my first Big Foot horror novel and I wasn t sure what to expect, but Patrick C Greene gives you a book that you not only read but fall into.One of the best things for me were all of the characters They were all very well written and not overly detailed, including the beasts Following along with Owen s journal was like a story within the story and makes it all the better Owen is a loving father and passive man who [...]

    15. I received a copy of Progeny through a giveaway The book was smooth and super easy to read view spoiler A man, Owen Sterling, buys land from the local Tsalagi tribe with the promise not to sell or exploit the land Quickly you learn something else is living on the land and Owen takes it upon himself to keep the family of sasquatch safe Of course that won t stop a group of guys from hunting illegally on Owen s land I of course start figuring this was going to be a typical horror plot line Dumb hun [...]

    16. I got totally caught up in this story I found myself holding my breath towards the end.Only wish I hadn t read the introduction before the the story as it gave me insight into what the story was about than I wanted.P.S You may want to empty your bladder before you start this one Very hard to put it down.I won my copy in a contest and I m not really sure if that counts under the rules where you have to reveal it if you got your copy for free since I didn t get it in exchange for a review, but I [...]

    17. I have to say this book was such a pleasant surprise More of a father and son relationship book I was expecting horror or maybe a goofy bigfoot book but this is so not that Yes, we do have bigfoot but its done so well.

    18. A short read I ll be honest, I figured this book would be cliche Quite the opposite A wonderful tale meant for anyone Kudos to the artist and publisher.

    19. Centred around two families this is the tale of Big Foot no spoilers there if you read the blurb Patrick C Greene has certainly delivered another spot on story.Owen, the famed author, and his son Chuck are trying to rebuild a shattered relationship post a messy divorce, this side issue is touched on briefly but with such tenderness that you feel for all parties concerned, especially when I learnt about the catalyst later in the book In almost a juxtaposition is sensitive Byron and his overbearin [...]

    20. Progeny is a rip roaring quick read that s told so vividly, you ll feel like you re watching a movie It s one of those stories that builds its premise slowly but surely, enticing the reader to turn the pages faster and faster as the terror heats up In fact, I d say for the last third of the book, I was curled in a fetal position, afraid to even look out my own window lest I see a giant monster staring in at me Deanna reflexively turned toward Chuck but her eyes were drawn to the window of the do [...]

    21. Progeny ist Bigfoot Horror Ein Genre, von dem ich bis vor kurzem nicht einmal wu te, dass es das gibt Doch in Nordamerika leben noch versprengte Bigfoot Populationen Der erste Bigfoot taucht in persona erst bei 51 % auf und dann wird das arme Ding gleich erschossen In der ersten H lfte wird noch versucht, die Existenz der Bigfoots als berraschung zur ckzuhalten Mit dem Fu abdruck auf dem Cover klappt das nicht so gut.Owen Sterling ist Schriftsteller und wei um die Existenz dieser Waldwesen, wie [...]

    22. This was a different type of story for me to read being a fan of zombie books but a friend had recommended it and I am so glad she did From the first chapter I was hooked into it This story is not just about the all eluding creature that we have all heard stories of for years but it is a story about fathers and sons and their relationships The characters in this story are made real by Mr Greene s writing ability Yes this is a true horror story with blood and gore and with it being about Bigfoot [...]

    23. This is one of the most lovely tales I ve read in quite some time I m not a Bigfoot fan I do enjoy horror However, Progeny is much than horror, much than a Bigfoot story It s a coming of age tale about father and son There are some scary moments, but nothing gory The story is poetic, the writing is professional One of the best books I ve read in 2013 Kudos to the publisher for always putting out such amazing work.

    24. I loved this one It reminded me a bit of my novel VICIOUS, but the way Patrick weaves a story shows that he is an author to watch and watch closely The characters were very real, the monsters told realistically and in a way that allowed you to relate to them A really terrific novel.

    25. Don t usually read Bigfoot stories but I liked it Really had a good plot and good character development Would read this author again for sure

    26. Although a short read, it was a good one More than just a Bigfoot story, it also looked at father son dynamics An enjoyable read.

    27. A definite page turner What a gripping story Apparently the great northwest is not the only territory for Sasquatch or Bigfoot or whatever you want to call it There is an interesting comparison of cultures in this book also The urban author, who has bought a large tract of land from a local native American tribe with the understanding that it was to be left as a preserve, represents one group The rural gunshop owner represents another and the family of Sasquatch like beings represent the third W [...]
