Cryptid Hunters vs. Tentacles 117

I’ve gotten a a lot of emails the past week from readers who are a little confused about TENTACLES…

Just to clarify TENTACLES is the sequel to CRYPTID HUNTERS.

Can you read the novels out of order? Yes, but it would be better to read them in order.

TENTACLES begins almost immediately after Marty and Grace return from The Congo in Central Africa.

Will there be a 3rd book in the series? The short answer is yes (and probably several more). The longer answer can be found by scrolling through these blog entries to “Will there be a sequel to Cryptid Hunters and Tentacles?”

I’m delighted so many of you are enjoying Tentacles. If you haven’t read Cryptid Hunters I’m certain you’ll like it just as well Tentacles.

    Hello Mr. Roland!
    I heard that the third book in the Hunters series was coming out this month, and I was wondering if it was true. I’m a huge fan of the books and I’ve read both of them at least four times, and maybe even more than that. I read the first sentence of Cryptid Hunters and was hooked. Even though I’ve read them both so many times, each time I read them, I get even more excited and surprised. Your my favorite author and when I read your books, I feel like I’m right there in the story with the characters. Being in the Orb with Ted Bronson, and in the Congo with Masalito, even in the high wire with Dr. Laurel Lee and Grace! You are an amazing author, keep on writing!

    I loved cryptic hunter and I was wondering if you could explain what the platform place was like when Marty took the zip line thing? Is it like another house or just some wood to land on?

    Mr. Smith,
    Thank you so much for visiting East Hills Middle School this week.
    One of my 6th grade girls said, “He was a great speaker! I haven’t read any of his books, but I will now!”
    Thank you for inspiring people all over the world to read and love science.
