I liked the fast pace of this novel. This is a lot of fascinating information presented about the history of the New York Museum of Natural History. A strange crate brought to the museum seems to have unleashed a mysterious monster.

Some of the story is predictable as there are a lot of people that take a long time to convince that there is something wrong. Also, the first confrontation with the creature and the military turns out to be a total disaster for the soldiers.

Some parts make your heart skip a beat. Not for the weak-stomached reader!
