Scott Nicholson is a Master of Horror
These creatures are as creepy and unforgettable as the monster in Alien. I don¿t usually like vampire stories, but I thoroughly enjoyed delving into this chilling tale, and not climbing out for awhile. I even slowed down when reading the final twenty pages, just to make it last a little longer. The history and legends of the ancient Appalachian Mountains made these primordial beasts a little too credible. It is the kind of book that intrudes into your day and makes you startle at tree movement. His descriptions have a three dimensional clarity that captured me, clenched my gut and at times gave me a sick gasp. And then there were moments that I burst out laughing. His sex scenes are steel melting hot. I¿ve never read better. I found the characters understandable and uncomfortably realistic as I know there are people like that out there. I found this book a rare treasure, engaging my brain and senses. I have ordered more Scott Nicholson books and am happily looking forward to the experience of reading them.Was this review helpful?

Scott Nicholson writes horror that scares the living daylights out of the reader
The primordial world of the Unegawa Wilderness Area is about to be invaded by three different groups of people. The `Boma Bomber, has entered the area with Clara, a woman who is turned on by his menace, enters the area to escape the Feds that are pursuing him because e made bombs that destroyed people and abortion clinics. Two FBI agents Jim Castle and profiler Derek Samdford are following a tip that he is in the area and are in pursuit of him. The last group is led by Bowie Whitlock and sponsored by Pro Ventures to test a new raft as the white waters of the Gregor River.------------ All three groups see a bat winged humanoid figure with grey skin, blindeyes and the need to drink blood. It is believed that the explosives that Ace set and were exploded when an FBI agent stepped on the trip wire awakened the vampire like creatures from the underground depths. When the victims of the creatures die, they come back with the same fierce hunger for blood. As all three groups meet, Ace andClara and one of the rafters Guthrie, take a raft leaving the FBI agent and the other rafters to work together to avoid getting killed. Eventually it will fall one person to make the move to eradicate the menace if he can.---------------- Scott Nicholson writes horror that scares the living daylights out of the reader even if the creatures that are so frightening are non-breathing, winged bat like humanoids with hand and feet. This could be the creatures the vampire myths were based on and they are very frightening. The characters in this bitingly good horror novel are well developed and range from the saint to the psychopathic who sees the vampires as angels. There is lots of action and chase scenes making readers feel like they are on the fastest and most twisty roller coaster ride on earth.-------- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
