Hell's Well (Systema Paradoxa Book 13)
There are creatures lurking in our world. Obscure creatures long relegated to myth and legend. They have been sighted by a lucky-or unlucky-few, some have even been photographed, but their existence remains unproven and unrecognized by the scientific community.
These creatures, long thought gone, have somehow survived; creatures from our nightmares haunting the dark places. They swim in our lakes and bays, they soar the night skies, they hunt in the woods. Some are from our past, and some from other worlds, and others have always been with us-watching us, fearing us, hunting us.
These are the cryptids, and Systema Paradoxa tells their tales.
Astrophysicist Dr. Kate Gavin Weaver's life was hard enough fighting for tenure at Caltech while raising a four-year-old daughter as a single mother. It was even harder living under the shadow of her estranged father, Mack Gavin, the host of the wildly popular television series, The Cryptid Hunter.
But when Mack disappears while researching the subject of his next episode in the secluded wilderness town of Lone Pine, California, Kate decides to leave the relative safety of Pasadena to find her father.
What she uncovers there shakes the very foundation of her reality and forces her to grapple with an adversary she could've never imagined.
