Northwoods Nightmare!...

Northwoods - Bill Schweigart

Northwoods is a supernatural horror story that will have you looking twice at the people you know! It had lots of action and lots of gore. Schweigart also does a good job of incorporating supernatural elements but I found I wasn't quite believing the unbelievable. I also thought this story was really, too similar, to his first book, The Beast of Barcroft so I wasn't as shocked or surprised by some of the elements. What I enjoyed most was the dialogue between the main characters that returned from the first book and seeing how their stories developed. I also love how Schweigart throws some humor into the mix. He really knows how to add it in where it sounds natural and not cheesy or forced. Overall a good gruesome story that will keep you entertained. I just hope next time Schweigart will give us a little something different then what we've seen in these first two books.
