While playing a high school prank before graduation, six friends--dubbed the Dirty Half Dozen--unknowingly become entangled in a centuries old horror known as the Woodsman, a vengeful demonic entity that has been killing innocents in the town of Sagebrook. The Half Dozen attempt to thwart the ghostly demon but their plan ultimately falls short...until 30 years later they're summoned back to Sagebrook to finally put the Woodsman to rest, once and for all...or die trying. Russell does a nice job layering the chills and suspense, in between flashing back and forth between then and now. The writing is solid, flows well, but my only criticism would be of the way the main characters are presented early in the book. With a half dozen (no pun) main ones I found it hard to follow who was who, mainly because they didn't make any remarkable impressions. As the novel went on, they became easier to discern. For those fans of beach-read horror that isn't overly gory, this one is worth reading!

The complex plot of ghost hunting, betrayal, and loss pulled me into the frightening novel of horror and suspense. Even though the Woodsman’s creepiness permeates the story, there is so much beyond the supernatural element in this novel. Russell brilliantly develops the Dirty Half Dozen and realistically shows how one graduation prank alters their lives forever. Thirty years later, the reunion of the Dirty Half Dozen rips open healed wounds, especially when the group must face the Woodsman again. Effectively integrating the present with the past, the author passionately explores the personal sacrifices these characters have made ever since that night at the water tower. The perfect balance of character growth and downright terrifying encounters with the Woodsman, Sacrifice is an entertaining novel with a pulse-pounding climax that will leave you emotionally spent and heartbroken. I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

From the first chapter, this story hooked me and would not let go. Two stories unwind in parallel, one of six high school boys saving their town from an evil spirit and the other of those same men returning thirty years later to again face the spirit’s return. There are some seriously scary scenes and the pace never lets up. The characters were so well drawn I felt like I knew them all by the end of the book, which I was sad to get to. You will love this book, especially of you grew up in the 1970’s.
