The Beast of Barcroft by Bill Schweigart


The beast of barcroft

Do Monsters Scare You? 

If you answer is yes, this book is for you.

Monsters are here, monsters of the worse kind!

 The Beast Of Barcroft has Monsters most foul.


The neighborhood near the seat of power for the U.S. should have been a fantasy come true; old stately homes, quite neighbors, the perfect place to live.

Do not be deceived, something is very wrong in Barcroft, Virginia.  It started with the neighbor from hell, Madeleine Roux; raccoon rehab, feral cats, rats, and an ecosystem altered inviting something evil to come, commune, and feast on the community.

Ben McKelvie’s life has been on a downward spiral for sometime, however the horror to come will forge him into the man he was meant to be.  Along with a small group of fellow believers, Ben will fight for his life and community.  Hero’s will emerge before the end of the story.


Character, Plotting And Development:

Mr. Schweigart grabbed me from the first paragraph.  The tension,evil, and horror leaps off each page.  The story never slows as horror after horror is revealed from the imagination of Mr Schweigart.  He keeps you guessing, what is behind the savage killings, is it a big cat, a wolf, a man; you will have to read this story to find out.  You will be hooked and unable to put this book down as you journey down the road of mystical native creatures, evil, and people who rise to the occasion to fight against the unknown.

The plotting was excellent in this book and the character development was spot on.  I loved watching Ben become a strong man in a world gone wrong and the twists and turns kept me guessing.


I highly recommend this book for those that love an adventure filled with evil and things unknown, a great story line, and well-developed characters.  I look forward to the sequel novel due for publication in early 2016. Great job Mr. Schweigart!

I received this book from the publisher and Netgalley in return for an honest book review.


Book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion;  book reviews on line under my name are my opinion.
