Overview

They’re waiting for you in the woods.

They’ve lived in the woods and cornfields for as long as anyone can remember. Small, humanoid creatures with sharp teeth and grasping hands. The people in what’s left of the nearby town live in fear. They’ve learned that if they let the creatures take what they want, they won’t be attacked. An uneasy peace has reigned. But no more. The leader of the creatures has decided his kind will be dormant no longer. To survive, they must kill. They will satisfy their unholy hunger with their favorite prey—humans. But some humans—females—will be kept alive in captivity… to breed.

From the stunningly gruesome opening scene to the cliffhanger, of sorts, final chapter, Rufty's debut novel is impressive in the way he spins his horror tale of a band of cannibalistic little people, or haunchies, who live in rural Wisconsin. Greg Butler, up and coming horror novelist, attempts to help his friend Amy get away from an abusive relationship, but in doing so, Amy's ex wants to make them both pay. Teamed up with a new group of friends, they get lost in the countryside and eventually everyone becomes targets of the murderous haunchies. Reminiscent of the works of Richard Laymon and Bryan Smith, this novel is one not for the faint of heart, and one not to miss!
