i am sure bike riding preteen and young teen age boys will love this story of gargoyles and other mythical creatures. the characters really would be better in a comic book/graphic novel.

Sequel to BASILISK improves on it May 3 2012
By KinksRock - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'm starting to notice a trend in my reading of Masterton novels, and I'm not sure if this is about Masterton or about me. I have not liked the first entry in his series, but have liked the second entry in those series. This is a consistent trend in the MANITOU, SISSY SAWYER, and now the NATHAN UNDERHILL series.

PETRIFIED is a better follow-up to the first in the UNDERHILL series, Basilisk. Again, Professor Underhill is engaging in incredible experiments to recreate mythological creatures that he believes really existed at some point (this time a phoenix), and he's up against a villain with similar goals (in this one, to bring back to life the petrified gargoyles that we see mounted on churches), but he doesn't go over the line this time in trying to make us go along with developments that are just too unbelievable, even in the context of a horror novel (in BASILISK, a guy volunteered to become a slug creature of some kind; it was just too much).

There's just the right balance of cop drama, scientific experiments, mythology, and Mastertonian gore. The only thing that Masterton's regular readers may note is missing is graphic sex, although there's some suggestion that it's happening "off screen" when the professor's assistant compromises herself so he won't lose his funding.

It's good fun. I recommend you skip BASILISK and just go straight to this one.

Frozen in fear March 9 2012
By Santeria - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Some of Masterton's best books have been his series. My favorite is the Harry Erskine books, where Masterton works out his best uber Horror in the supernatural vein. Nathan Underhill has been introduced before, but the book is self explanatory even without a knowledge of his previous work.
This book brings together three streams of story that are not so far removed, but it takes a little bit of development before things take off ( in an almost literal sense). Underhill works on his project that can help with burns , but part of the way into the story he meets the son of his previous nemesis, and the main plot fires up ( as it were). The three threads intertwine in a brilliant way, and it is hard not to say much without saying anything about the key point. Suffice to say that this book has some classic Masterton moments ( not as extreme as THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT, but more like some elements, for example, in PARIAH). Fans of classic Masterton will, in my view, enjoy petrified, since it elicits the best of his mythic skills, and brings out more of his capabilities as shown in TRAUMA, aka BONNIE WINTER.
I will reveal that, I hope very much that this is the second of many books with Underhill. Masterton has a great formula here, and I hope very much that he brings out more of the style he created in PARIAH to combine with Underhill's special tone.

Great book May 5 2013
By Kathleen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book loosely carries on from 'The Balisk'. It shows a depth of maturity and a return to his old-school writing of incorporating somewhat obscure mythology and modern day technological advances. There are very few Masterton books that I would not recommend, and this one is one that I highly recommend to anyone.
