Before reading Howl, I hadn’t experienced Renee Miller’s writing. This was a great starting point. I enjoyed this book. It was a hair-raising experience, and I had a howling good time.
This book was brutal!
A group of friends are on their way to a conference for work. The GPS messes up, and ultimately they become stranded along the road in a snowstorm. Of course, there isn’t any cellphone signal way out here, so they begin to walk. Then, they begin to become stalked.
There’s an attack.
Finally, they come to a secluded cabin. The couple already in the cabin isn’t happy about the intrusion. It leads to more head-butting and problems, and they all become prey. With a depleting food stock, everyone is on edge. And, of course, the beasts who continue stalking them are a much bigger problem than dwindling food and flaring tempers.
As they continue to plan an escape, there are more gruesome attacks.
There are plenty of blood and guts strewn and sprayed around, corpse mutilation, and some repulsive sexual acts, so beware of those things if you’re easily grossed out or bothered by those situations.
Three friends, an empty fuel tank, a desolate dirt road, and a hike through the woods in the middle of a snowstorm; what could go wrong?
A mysterious beast stalks Fred and his friends through the snow, forcing them to seek shelter with two strangers in a remote cabin.
And so begins a waiting game.
Food dwindles, tempers flare, and survival of the fittest becomes more than just a saying as the beast closes in.
