The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

Four university buddies go out to the Lewis family cabin near Tahoe for a few days of outdoor sports and hard partying. The stay has a horrible end, however, when three of the young men are found brutally murdered while the last one of the party has gone missing, presumed to be responsible for the killings.

Their best friend may be the prime suspect, but was he really responsible for the murders as evidence points to something far more sinister, something more beast than man?

Fueled by concern over the welfare of their best friend and tormented by all the unanswered questions, Bonnie and Eric decide to take a late-night drive to the cabin and take a look at the scene of the crime for themselves. The plan is simple: a quick look around and a return home before morning classes start.

But they have no idea of what savage secrets wait for them in the woods.

Can’t lie, I love me a good monster book and who doesn’t love werewolves? The suspense here is gripping right from the start. Every time you think these characters are going to get a time out, something else happens. You have to keep reading, there’s not a good place to put it down, where you don’t feel like you’re missing something. I’m also in love with the villain. I relish when the bad guy is grey. Someone you want to root for, but deep down, you know is no good. Villains who make you question what you would do or who you might be if you were faced with their particular circumstances are my favorite. I hate characters that are evil because they’re born that way and I am always thrilled when a great one emerges from the woodwork. Well done, S.M. Sevón. The only thing that bugged me was there wasn’t enough character development. I feel like if the book hit the breaks a bit, and introduced us to the characters slower or gave us more time to get to know them when they weren’t running or fighting for their lives, I would have cared more about them. There were deaths I definitely felt like I should have been more devastated by, but I didn’t know them well enough to mourn. I’m hoping to get to know the main character Bonnie better in the next book!
