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 loved this book from the first chapter. It had me completely hooked and I finished this in a weekend (which is fast for me)! The characters seemed so real, the author really made me care about them and what was happening--it felt like they were old friends. Some really scary stuff goes on and through the whole book I was so anxious to get to the next page and see what would happen. Very creepy, scary and unexpected things go on, just what I like in a book. I could not recommend this more! A really great read! Can't wait to read more by Joel Arnold!

Northwoods Deep by Joel Arnold is a morbidly delicious tale that will keep you hooked and wanting more from beginning to end. In an attempt to get away from her ex-husband who focuses his time on stalking her, Carol decides it would be good for her to get away and spend some time with her sister Brenda at the same time. The sisters quickly make plans to go on a camping trip where they will enjoy some fresh air and spend some time canoeing. Little did they know that their lives would be forever changed. Family bonds will be tested and personal strength stretched to the limits as Northwoods Deep takes you down the ultimate river ride of terror. And you would have to read the book to understand my next statement but take note: If anyone ever offers you a drink with the words 'Special' and 'Brew' in the title...just say no people...just say no. This book does contain adult material and should be read only by mature adult audiences. Also, I would love to see Northwoods Deep in print form as I would love to have a copy on my bookshelf.

Northwoods Deep is an interesting story, but at times it drags a little. It is very graphic and gory in areas - sometimes more than necessary.

I liked this book, had to keep reading long into the night to find out what was going to happen next!

Joel Arnold writes a wonderful story. The plot and characters are excellent. If you like to read horror books this one if for you. Keeps you on the edge of your seat turning the pages. Gives you that good creepy read that sends shiver down your spine and gives you nightmares.

I will start by saying that this book freaked me out. I mean really freaked me out. The ending was uber creepy, to say the least. The story line was okay, nothing new or daring, UNTIL THE END. After that, I was just numb. I know Joel Arnold definitely threw everyone for a loop with the ending, but it was just too creepy beyond words for me, and that is saying something, because horror is my favorite genre. Can I honestly say I don't know HOW I feel about this book?

Very good book. I have never read thus author and was looking for something new and different that would still be horrific and chilling. Did not disappoint.

This book has great potential but ends abruptly and with very little creativity. It's as if the author just got bored while writing and decided to wrap it up in the next chapter. A waste of time overall.

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.

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.
