Review: ‘Deception Island’ (Jurassic Judgment) by Janice Boekhoff

About The Book

An island prison. Deadly dinosaur species. A daring escape.

Now it’s a race to find the truth before someone notices she’s gone …

Imprisoned on dinosaur-infested Costa Rica, Oakley Laveau is haunted by the desperate question of why her mother tried to kill her. When a dream hints at answers to her mysterious past, she’s determined to uncover the secrets of her manipulated DNA. Oakley boldly decides to flee and hunt down the truth at any price … even execution.

Slipping away from the island with the help of a loyal friend, headstrong Oakley makes it to a floating research lab. But with the FBI in pursuit and a smug scientist plotting to exploit her, she may find her newfound freedom is deadlier than the cage she fled.

Will Oakley’s determination to trace the clues of her past reveal a dangerous secret better left uncovered?

Deception Island is the tense second book in the Jurassic Judgment science fiction series. If you like genetically modified reptiles, savvy survivalists, and undercurrents of attraction, then you’ll love Janice Boekhoff’s thrilling story.

About Janice Boekhoff
Blessed with an insatiable curiosity and a low tolerance for boredom, award-winning author Janice Boekhoff (pronounced Beau-cough) has worked more than twenty jobs ranging from Loan Consultant (important, but mortgage paperwork makes her sleepy) to Landfill Environmentalist (literally her smelliest job) to Research Geologist (the job that gave her the best tan and the most adventures).

She began writing as a way to express all of the unique ideas colliding in her head. A Midwest native, she now writes from Eastern Iowa where she lives with her hubby, three basketball-loving kids, and one adorable Vizsla (that’s a dog in case you weren’t sure).
5 Stars!

If you have not read book one in this series, Extinction Island, do so now. The premise of sending death row inmates to an island populated with dinosaurs is enough to draw anyone in. The first book was awesome and I was so excited to read book two. Well, I have and it was equally as amazing. Add to the prisoners and some bad to the bone dinosaurs, including Red Grizzly and Demon Dragon, then throw in some genetically altered people with incredibly odd powers, and all but the dinosaurs are running from someone or other, and you have an action packed, heart pounding tale that you won’t soon forget. Then there’s the cliffhanger making you nearly drool for book three. Janice Boekhoff knows her stuff, that I can tell you. Now I have to wait for the next one! Bravo!

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. I was not pressured to leave a positive review. The opinion here is entirely my own.
