Northwoods by Bill Schweigart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received Northwoods by Bill Schweigart from NetGalley. The free Kindle e-book ARC was approved by Random House Publishing Group - Hydra; in exchange for an honest review.
The cover was a lure, the description was a many barbed hook.
The beginning of the story was slow for me. There are scientific terms I am not accustomed to seeing, and had to look up.
This is not a typical fiction novel. There are a host of well formed characters that I needed to get settled in my brain.
This is not a series, but a continuation of earlier work The Beast of Barcroft. I have not yet read the prior book, but I will now.
This book stands alone, but having read "Beast..." would have launched me into the rhythm and hierarchy of the story faster.
This is a suspenseful, supernatural book. No sissies need apply. It is horrible and amazing. I would not have missed Northwoods for the world.
If you love warriors, the supernatural, our natural world and folklore, do not pass this up.
I recommend reading "The Beast of Barcroft" first, but it is not necessary. Like me you will be reading it after the fact.
Bill Schweigart has a new fan.
