Daniel Pyle seems to start with a bang and never let go! Freeze is quite a great quick read clocking in at about 111 ePub pages, and I read it in one sitting! Pyle creates a story in which what ISN'T being told to you stands out, and adds to the suspense. Every room that is entered, every breath that they take an implied sense of urgency is displayed. There are not that many characters in the book, and I consider the Winter Storm a background character in this book as much as the monsters that appear in the night. He takes on the fear of being isolated, and unable to get help, and it all blends together into a satisfying conclusion, especially for the type of tale that's being told. Highly recommend it!

This hooked me from the beginning and didn't let go! I was to the end and hoping for more. Great imagery and perfect horror.

Review of member giveaway eBookThis horror novella hits the ground running. A couple snowed in find that the cold is the least of their worries. Outside something strange is happening in the ice. This was a creepy, gory, entertaining read.

If you're looking for a great monster novella, Pyle's "Freeze" really fits the bill. Pyle's depiction of the painfully bitter cold in this book was especially vivid and made me shiver (even in the middle of an Arizona summer). The characters were appropriately developed for a book of this type--we don't get to know their life stories, but their relationship does feel real enough to care about their fate. The only thing I found distracting were the occasional use of parentheticals that, at first, I thought were editing marks left in by mistake. It doesn't happen that often, but was distracting when it did.This book delivers on just about every level, and I still find myself thinking about the ending weeks after I finished reading. Definitely recommended.

Wow, fast paced and well written horror. Tess and Warren are getting ready to ride out ther blizzard that is raining down on their mountain home, but as the storm grows worse they find out that there is something worse in the snow than the cold. I could not put this down and it was the first sleet ridden night of the winter and I had to look around when i heard any little noise. Well done!!!

This was a very fast paced and enjoyable book to read. I sit down and read the whole thing in one sitting. Very enjoyable, a few places where it could be improved but overall it was a great book and I would recommend to anyone.

Tess and Warren are waiting out a blizzard in their mountain home with their dog Bub when while Tess is washing dishes she sees a hand bang on her window and shatter it in her face. While Warren is tending to Tess's injuries he decides she needs to go to the hospital just to be on the safe side. As he goes out to dig out his truck he discovers something shocking. What Tess and Warren think is the most unlucky night of their life is about to get much worse. This was a good, short suspensful story.

Now this is how you write a horror story. From the moment you get into this story, an intense feeling of absolute terror will enter you.The creatures are mysterious and creepy and the interactions between the main characters are spot on. This will come highly recommended from me.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The writing was fast-paced, if a bit over-colloquial at times (very few times, however), which kept the suspense up. I was afraid the situation/crisis would be presented in a hyperbolic fashion that would make the drama laughable, but the author manages to strike a good balance that allows the reader to sympathize with the characters without finding the concepts ridiculous. I would call it more classic Stephen King than H.P Lovecraft, which is not a bad thing at all.

Loved it! It had me right from the beginning and I couldn't put it down! I really liked the relationship between the husband and wife .. it was very real between them and they loved each other so much! The dog was great..if you've ever had one you know how the people were feeling..he brought something normal to a very abnormal situation! The sounds made by the creature were described SO very well! I could really HEAR & FEEL it moving closer! I wanted to know more..about the couple..the creatures..etc.. It's a great book to get lost in for a bit!

Freeze is a horror story guaranteed to please even the most hardened horror afficionado. It is fast paced and scary as hell. It's the kind of story that grabs you right at the beginning and never lets go. But be warned, you might want to check all your doors and windows and turn on all the lights before you start. And whatever you do, don't read this in the middle of a blizzard

This book captivates you from the first page and never lets up. It's the first book of Daniel's that I've read, but it won't be the last. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from him. A truly gifted author!
