This is the kind of horror that I can get into. Lost in the woods, and old cabin, a crazy old guy.....yeah, it's going there.

Carol and her sister Brenda are taking kind of a canoe trip to really get away from Carols ex-husband Mitch, who is stalking her. He ends up hearing about it, and follows.

When this happens, her brother Jack starts to have dreams about his mother April (who he was responsible for killing in a car crash) telling him that his sisters were in trouble. So he and his father Allen, who has still never forgiven him for the death of April, goes after them, not exactly knowing when they hit the water.

Everything comes to a head at the Cabin in Northwoods deep where Agustus Meyer lives. He is the guardian of an ancient evil. Mitch is the first to really find out what happens, and it's here where the twisted Hansel and Gretel story comes into play, as it seems he's "fattening" them up for some sort of sacrifice.

I can't really go much more into detail as it will spoil the story, but I found it a real page turner.

The only gripe I had was that in the eBook version from B&N there was no separation of paragraphs when they are changing scene or location. You are reading about Carol and Brenda one paragraph and the next sentence the scene switches to Jack and Allen, but it runs together. I found myself having to re-read some sections because all of a sudden I was reading in a different location with different characters and thought maybe I missed something.

Overall though, a great book!!

And let me say for the record, I'm no reviewer... but I liked this book.

There're strange happenings going on here from the get-go, and Joel wastes no ink acquainting us with two of the main characters. Unfortunately, one of them has a restraining order against the other, not that the other seems to be bothered by this. So, feeling the need to get away for awhile, Carol and her sister Brenda decide to go on a canoeing trip up a river, for a few days. Little do they know that Carol's ex-husband (see "restraining order") is in hot pursuit, wanting to confront his once-wife and "talk" with her, away from civilization.

Now, in some places the suspense was drawn out too much for me, and I found myself hoping things would "get back to the action." But that's my only criticism, and this is horror. Joel has a way with imagery, and there were more than a few lines that made me shake my head and cringe. Just *cringe*. The story clips along at a steady pace and soon enough, the ladies are on the river, and that's all I'm going to say about it. I felt the river sequence was essentially the equivalent of that first hill your roller coaster climbs... you know the one, where things are building up to that first drop and the rush of "omigawdwe'redead! that crackles through you. Except, with the rollercoaster, there are features to keep you safe.

There were some truly intense moments in this piece of work, the likes I haven't read in a very long time. And the suspense in the last forty pages or so was worthy enough of any Stephen King book. In all sincerity, Joel is a very, very twisted gentleman.

A good book. I'll be reading more.

A sister's love, a father's pain, a brother's guilt, a psycho ex husband, a creepy old hermit, and an Indian legend all come together in a story so descriptive and well written that I could almost smell the woods and hear the river. There are not many books that I assign the overused phrase of "page turner" and it may seem like I'm gearing up to call Northwoods Deep one of them....
Well I'm not. Because for me, this book was more rare than a page turner. I did not devour it in one sitting. This book was savored slowly over several days, even though I did not want to put it down. I forced myself to put it down. To make it last, simply because I don't know when I have enjoyed a book more, and I didn't want it to end. I do know it will probably be a long time before I find another one as good. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more from this author.

I loved this book from the first chapter. It had me completely hooked and I finished this in a weekend (which is fast for me)! The characters seemed so real, the author really made me care about them and what was happening--it felt like they were old friends. Some really scary stuff goes on and through the whole book I was so anxious to get to the next page and see what would happen. Very creepy, scary and unexpected things go on, just what I like in a book. I could not recommend this more! A really great read! Can't wait to read more by Joel Arnold!

I'll begin by saying that I am a hard-core horror fan, so I tried to get into this book. The first two chapters were extremely slow and boring, but I was determined to stick with it. It seems like the author chose to create stupid, weak, addiction-ridden characters and throw them all together on an "adventure" where they all mysteriously end up in the same location in the end. Not one character could I relate to or sympathize with. I honestly didn't care who died or survived by the middle of the book. I don't know where the 5 star ratings are coming from....this book is LAME!

I found myself constantly rereading passages to try to figure out what was happening, many times just skipping over it all together because it made no sense at all.
I think the storyline had potential, it just never materialized and went on numerous tangents. Just when I thought the book couldn't get worse, the last chapter put it over the top for me. The kindle edition also contained many, many distracting errors. Save your money and don't waste your time on this book.
