If you see an cabin in a quiet neck of unfamiliar woods....DON'T GO IN!!

This is the kind of horror that I can get into. Lost in the woods, and old cabin, a crazy old guy.....yeah, it's going there.

This is the kind of horror that I can get into. Lost in the woods, and old cabin, a crazy old guy.....yeah, it's going there.

Carol and her sister Brenda are taking kind of a canoe trip to really get away from Carols ex-husband Mitch, who is stalking her. He ends up hearing about it, and follows.

When this happens, her brother Jack starts to have dreams about his mother April (who he was responsible for killing in a car crash) telling him that his sisters were in trouble. So he and his father Allen, who has still never forgiven him for the death of April, goes after them, not exactly knowing when they hit the water.

Everything comes to a head at the Cabin in Northwoods deep where Agustus Meyer lives. He is the guardian of an ancient evil. Mitch is the first to really find out what happens, and it's here where the twisted Hansel and Gretel story comes into play, as it seems he's "fattening" them up for some sort of sacrifice.

I can't really go much more into detail as it will spoil the story, but I found it a real page turner.

The only gripe I had was that in the eBook version from B&N there was no separation of paragraphs when they are changing scene or location. You are reading about Carol and Brenda one paragraph and the next sentence the scene switches to Jack and Allen, but it runs together. I found myself having to re-read some sections because all of a sudden I was reading in a different location with different characters and thought maybe I missed something.

Overall though, a great book!!

I actually read this while staying at a cabin in the woods, thinking I could get a good little creepy feeling from it. Sad to say, it didn't happen. The story wasn't bad, the characters were interesting, it just didn't have a whole lot of atmosphere. The final few chapters it started to seem a bit muddled and it ended rather abruptly, as though perhaps the author just lost interest and wanted to wrap things up.

    Left alot unexplained

    Started off wonderful then when the "good" stuff starts there is zero backstory. At the end you are left without any answers. I dont highly recomend.
