    1. Masterton's sequel to his successful Manitou ticks all the boxes for a successful horror novel. There's an appropriate air of menace and the enemy and it's machinations become clearer as the pages are turned. Ultimately Harry and his medicine man friend will pitch their efforts against the malevolent Misquamacus, who's back with a new and insidious plan. As the rule of sequels dictates, the action is broader, faster and with bigger implications. The horror however, is more subtle than his later [...]

    2. Bravo, Graham. This is the first horror book to give me a panic attack. I heard a freakin moan in the middle of the night! Fascinating, considering the fact that I KNOW who the villain is and I KNOW who his daemons are /he is a HP Lovecraft character and serves the Old Ones!/. And still Scarier than "The Amytiville Horror" and better written. Scarier than the original too. Excellent horror.Review in Bulgarian:citadelata/the-revenge-of-

    3. I don’t currently consider Masterton a particularly great author but I do think him an interesting one. THE MANITOU, his debut novel, was published in 1976. This, the first sequel, came four years later, and straight away I can see an improvement in his writing, though he continues to omit anything that resembles character development. The tale itself introduces some rather Lovecraftian elements that, while not being original, work quite well with the idea of vengeful native American spirits ( [...]

    4. Το Μανιτού επιστρέφει. Τι είναι όμως το μανιτού; Το πνεύμα ενός αρχαίου μάγου. Κάποτε οι Ινδιάνοι ζούσαν στο σημερινό Μανχάταν. Η φυλή των Ινδιάνων ήταν στενά συνδεδεμένη με αρχαία πνεύματα, με μαγεία και με αρχαίους δαίμονες και τα πνεύματα τους. Ήρθαν οι λευκοί και τους έδ [...]

    5. Δεύτερο βιβλίο στην σειρά Μανιτού, με τον Μισκαμάκους να επιστρέφει ξανά, πιο δυνατός, με σκοπό να πάρει εκδίκηση από τους Λευκούς για αυτά που έκαναν χρόνια πριν στους ομοίους του και να κλείσει έναν λογαριασμό με τους Χάρι Έρσκιν και Βράχο Που Τραγουδάει, μετά τα τρομερά γ [...]

    6. I'm not familiar with his more recent output but back in his early works, Masterton apparently couldn't write convincing women. They seemingly existed only to be vague stereotypes or to be victimised in order to spur on the protagonist. Or, in the case of this book, both.On the whole though, the rest is typically early Masterton: quick paced, monumentally silly and entertaining in a thoroughly guilty manner. The only real break from the formula are the Lovecraftian references towards the end ("K [...]

    7. This book reads like a horror flick from the 80s. Far fetched and often ridiculous, but just plain fun. Nothing about the writing itself deserves a 4 star rating, but the lovecraftian references and the improvements in plot over its predecessor make for a very enjoyable sequel.

    8. Καταπληκτική ιστορία τρόμου από τον Masterton. Περίμενα το δεύτερο βιβλίο να μην είναι τόσο καλό όσο το πρώτο, γιατί τι άλλο είχε να προσφέρει σε μία ιστορία που φαινομενικά τα είχε πει όλα και ταυτόχρονα να μην κουράσει; Πάλι η πλοκή είναι γρήγορη, οι χαρακτήρες αναπτύσσονται κ [...]

    9. Αρκετά διασκεδαστικό, ευχάριστο για να περάσει η ώρα, σε κάποια σημεία κάπως γελοίοΜου άρεσαν πολύ οι ιστορικές αναφορές σχετικά με τον πολιτισμό των Ινδιάνων και τις διαμάχες με τους λευκούς.Σημαντικό στοιχείο του βιβλίου το ηθικό ζήτημα που τίθεται στον αναγνώστη σχετι [...]

    10. It had some scary moments, and some of the reviews were good. I expected more, and was disappointed. The interactions with the emergency personnel were ridiculous.

    11. Jak się nie bać, kiedy przed nami pojawia się odrodzony duch indiańskiego szamana w ciele dziesięcioletniego chłopca?"Zemsta Manitou" jest idealnym przykładem drugiego tomu serii, który przewyższa swojego poprzednika. Herbert w tej części nie kładzie głównie nacisku na masakrę, krew i flaki, a bardziej na tajemnicę, mrok i zagubienie. Wspaniale ukazuje reakcje społeczeństwa na to, co się dzieje z głównym bohaterem. Bo bądźmy szczerzy. Gdyby ktoś powiedział nam, że w po [...]

    12. While not as wildly campy as the Manitou, it was still some crazy Lovecraftian/Red Indian fun! At first I was leery as the book opened with the focus on an eight-year old protagonist, but I quickly warmed-up to Toby and the Fenner clan. There were also some fine moments as Misquamacus slowly intruded into reality, but, surprisingly, the narrative stalled a little after Harry Erskine and Singing Rock, from the original Manitou, finally got involved again. And, despite some fine scenes as Ka-tua-l [...]

    13. "Revenge of the Manitou" is what I wish The Manitou had been. I was not particularly fond of the first one, finding that it went in a ridiculous direction, especially in regard to how the characters planned on defeating the evil medicine man. I thought the battle between the medicine men in this sequel made more sense (but I don't want to give too much away). I didn't find myself rolling my eyes and thinking that the author went too far into the absurd while reading this one, which did happen wh [...]

    14. Había leído críticas algo malas sobre esta secuela directa de "Manitú" (y la tercera novela de Harry Erskine después de "The Djinn") pero personalmente me lo he pasado muy bien leyéndola. No supera al original y de hecho Erskine es más un personaje secundario pero lo intenta con todas sus fuerzas llenando el clímax de montones de demonios indios y muy poco veladas referencias a Lovecraft. Muy entretenida.

    15. written so well that you can imagine it happeninge little details about the characters,especially their flaws,make them come to life.Harry Erskine is an incredible,human,person,warts and all,and Misquamacus is pure evil,but he does a a valid cause

    16. Pierwsza z cyklu "Manitou", którą czytałem, trzeciż część też czytałem i wydaje mi się, że pierwszą także, ale zanotowanej (jeszcze) nie mam także głowy nie dam ;)W każdym razie podobała mi się i uważam, za jedną z lepszych książek Mastertona.

    17. Sans être mauvais, La Vengeance du Manitou est un moins bon livre que son prédécesseur. Le début du roman est très bon. C'est plutôt la fin qui laisse à désirer. J'ai trouvé la finale un peu paresseuse et qu'elle manquait d'originalité.

    18. You gotta' love a horror novel which contains a scene where on of the characters is actually raped by her possessed bed sheets.

    19. Misquamacus has found a way to return, and this time he won't be beaten so easilyoh erOne of my favourites of Masterton's as I love the Harry Erskine & Manitou series.
