My Review

I read the first book in this series and loved it, so when I saw this boxed set for the first three books on Amazon, I had to grab it.

It’s kind of hard to review these separately as it would have to contain some spoilers, so I’m going to tell you about it like it’s one book.

It literally does start on a dark and stormy night. The blizzard has arrived, the power is staring to fail, and the residents of the town, those that haven’t left yet, are free game for the creatures. Doors don’t keep them out. Guns don’t seem to do more than slow them down for a bit. And the dark and snow work to their advantage.

I love a scary good creature story and the ones offered up by the author are so bad, so cunning and vicious, so hungry. And they are everywhere. They’ve been waiting for this.

Another thing I like is when the elements work for the monsters and against the humans. What could be worse than the snow storm of the century. These werewolves knew it was coming and planned accordingly. Some were already living there, and some came with the storm.

Imagine how horrible it would be. First, you witness something so horrific and unbelievable. Then you get past the fear and shock, and accept that the creatures exist. Now what?

Well, you round up anything you can use for weapons and enter the dark, cold night.You try to drive out of town, struggling through snow drifts and hoping you don’t slide off the road.  You see some people being attacked by the creatures. Do you stop to help? Probably not the best idea. Too many of them and you’ll probably just end up torn to pieces. You’re cut off from the outside world and your fear and doubt escalate. Is this happening everywhere?

So on you go. Seeking shelter and safety, and the things out there are following you. This is there time.

There was a lot of suspense and carnage to keep this horror fan happy. The suspense was edgy, and there were some good surprises. Even when I knew what was coming, it was fun reading how it happened.

This is a series I would only recommend you read in order. The books all start pretty much where the last one left off.

Books four and five are out now, so I’ll be grabbing them too.

  4. Taylor Dean says:

    A snow storm and a power outage are a great setting for a horror story. And the werewolf picture you chose sure brings it all to life in my mind!
