Reviews of Feeder:

  • “16-year-old Lori Fisher supports herself and her younger brother by hunting down alien beings called feeders with her interdimensional partner, Handler, who communicates with her via text message” – At Publishers Weekly
  • “Then a job leads her to a shipping container full of kidnapped teenagers and into the crosshairs of the kidnapper, and Lori”s life goes from risky to dangerous” – At Project Muse


<p class="Bodydin79"><span lang="EN-US">Lori Fisher hunts monsters. Not with a sword or a gun but with an interdimensional creature called Handler. Together they take down “feeders” – aliens who prey on mankind. When Lori touches a feeder, Handler’s impossibly large jaws appear and drag the beast into another dimension. But a job for the Lake Foundation goes wrong, and Lori stumbles across the Nix. Now the Lake Foundation is hunting Lori, and if they find her, they find Ben, the brother Lori would do anything to protect. There’s only one thing to do: strike first.</span></p>
