"Fans of Watkins's MATEGUAS ISLAND will welcome this solid sequel…Watkins smoothly integrates the paranormal with a complex family drama." ~ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"This is a quick-paced story portraying a wide range of human emotions, deadly supernatural forces and ancient Native American beliefs that may help the characters survive the ordeal in store. It explores the depths of love and loss, dedication and defiance, innocence and desire - all in spite of the threat of losing everything. This is supernatural fiction at its best with a hint of coming-of-age enlightenment to appeal to younger readers as well as readers of all ages." ~ Melinda Hills for READERS' FAVORITE
"The real power in Return To Mateguas Island lies not so much in its inclusion of supernatural rituals as in its exploration of simmering emotions that lay just under the surface...Thus, its power and strength are most evident in its explorations of interpersonal relationships...the supernatural force described serves as a catalyst for events; not the end-all of these explorations. And it's the centrifuge of a whirlwind of emotional forces that swirl around all involved in the backdrop that is Mategaus Island and its mystical heritage ... the compelling draw of the island and its mysteries create suitable devices for a novel that excels in emotional interconnections with a dash of supernatural suspense added in for good measure." ~ D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"Return to Mateguas Island by Linda Watkins was a gripping read ... Excellent storyline, excellent characters in an all-round thrilling read. Linda's attention to detail is second to none and the book is very professionally written. Loved it!" ~ Anne-Marie Reynolds for READERS' FAVORITE
"Linda Watkins' contemporary dark fantasy, Return to Mateguas Island: A Tale of Supernatural Suspense, is well-written and fast-paced. While this is the second book in Watkins' Mateguas Trilogy, the author gives enough background to enable it to stand on its own, but the first book, Mateguas Island, is as marvelous, dark and brooding as this one is, and I'd recommend starting from there ...The Indian folklore that serves as the basis for this trilogy is so compelling, and Terri's interactions with Charlie, the elder Indian at the museum were powerful and intriguing ... Return to Mateguas Island: A Tale of Supernatural Suspense is absorbing dark fantasy, and it's most highly recommended." ~ Jack Magnus for READERS' FAVORITE
RETURN TO MATEGUAS ISLAND is the second full-length novel in the MATEGUAS ISLAND SERIES.
