This is another good Hellboy novel, this time written by horror maestro Tim Lebbon!
I like these novels, as I really miss Hellboy from the graphic novels, (why can't he just go back to the B.P.R.D?? Please Mr. Mignola!!) This sees Big red and the rest of the team dealing with all sorts of cryptids (thats cryptozoological creatures) that are randomly appearing all over the globe. Hellboy fights a dragon in Brazil, Abe battles a monstrous aligator in Venice and Liz has a Phoenix to deal with in Greece. Then a werewolf friend of theirs goes missing, is it linked? When the death toll starts getting bigger and bigger, the B.P.R.D have to take any lead they have, and that leads to a madman out for revenge, and to change the world! It turns out the cryptids are all a mere disctraction, and theres worse to come, much worse!
Action packed with some great explosive encounters, and some fantastical creatures! I really enjoyed this one,.and its made me interested in Tim Lebbons horror too! Give it a try!
