Hybrid Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow. Shadows can obscure the worst of horrors. No shadow is darker than those cast by time. No horror is worse than vengeance.
Retired Marine Sergeant Rick Eilerman thought his past was behind him. But that allusion breaks when armed men capture him and his girlfriend in the dead of night. After awakening on a boat, he is reunited with the same fireteam he commanded in the military. Very quickly, it becomes clear that someone chose them for a reason.
The team is brought to an island somewhere off the South American Pacific Coast. They are given supplies, weapons, and the promise of freedom, should they manage to kill the other occupant lurking on the island. Soon, Rick Eilerman and his team realize that this target is not simply a man. It blends in with its environment. Its teeth can rip the flesh from the bone. Its claws can impale a man’s skull. It can dominate both the sea and the land. It is a damnation. A freak of nature. A hybrid.
In the fight for survival, Rick Eilerman must uncover the horrible secrets to this island, and its linkage to his past.

And then the wheels came off. It just got dumber and dumber and more ludicrous and implausible. It had a load of potential to be mined as far as a story and characters. But, the author just started painting by numbers and let a cool premise and some characters go to waste.
You literally could’ve skipped entire chapters and kept up with the story. It was that predictable for long stretches.
And my final beef, the Hybrid; Crab-Shark-Cuttlefish-Jason Vorhees-Man. Boring and more boring. And you mean to tell me 8 trained military Spec Ops Guys can’t figure out how to kill an overgrown crab while armed with automatic weapons and grenades? That they’ll just go on repeating the same tactical errors that kept getting their teammates killed?
The idiocy would’ve stopped after the first killing. They would’ve fallen back to defensive positions and set up a kill zone. They would’ve looked for weak points and ways to bring it down as soon as they figured out it was essentially body armored. They would’ve gone for head shots long before they finally did. They would’ve baited it in, not the other way around.
These were allegedly highly trained professionals reduced to being outsmarted by a fish/crab/man who had the exact same training and background as them.
This book could’ve been so much better. It wasn’t.
