Menace from the Deep by Michael Spradlin


Emmett is not very happy when his dad’s job moves them from Montana to the Everglades.  What is worse, it doesn’t make any sense.  Why do they need his dad who specializes in raptors in the Everglades?  What they soon discover is that there is a terrible new species on the loose in the Everglades.  This species seems to be a combination of an alligator but with better eyes, the ability to climb trees, and the ability to glide.  What is this new species?  Dr. Catalyst, the creator of the species, wants his “pets” to get rid of invasive snakes in the Everglades so it can be restored but at what cost?  What if his “pets” get out of control? 

This was a fun book.  It had a lot of action, suspense, and danger with some science and mystery added it.  I enjoyed it.
