Book Description

For thousands of years a supernatural killer has slept in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. An amateur ghost hunter has just woken him up. Now that he stalks the night once more, he's traveling east. Although the monster's actions are pure evil, he may be the only thing that can save humanity from extinction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Story, Masterfully Written August 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Your pulse will do the fandango as you read The Hunting Tree Trilogy by Ike Hamill. A breathtaking story, it makes you want to turn the pages as quickly as possible so you can see what happens next to each of the three main characters: the lone survivor of a mass tribal suicide some five thousand years ago; a full-time geneticist and part-time paranormal investigator; and, a sometimes clumsy thirteen year old boy who is besieged by nightmares. As the story twists and turns in totally unexpected ways, you will need to stop occasionally to catch your breath (and maybe check under the bed) before continuing. Masterfully written, this brilliant trilogy braids the three threads into one seamless tale that will haunt you even in the daylight hours. This is yet another remarkable achievement from Ike Hamill, and you will want to delve into his other novels. I highly recommend that you do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Just Get Better August 5, 2012
By SifuJon
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow. I had read and enjoyed Book One before I realized the other parts had yet to be published. When I received the other parts they got even better. The suspense keeps ratcheting up until you wonder what is going to blow. The author does a good job of tying together multiple plot lines into a coherent story, with a satisfying ending. The best of the Ike Hamill books so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamill does not disappoint! September 20, 2012
By BrianH
Format:Kindle Edition
Another great read from Ike Hamill! Once again, I was hooked from the start, and found myself turning the pages long into the night despite the late hour. More great characters, vivid descriptions, and really compelling story lines that just beg for big screen adaptation. If you liked the Vivisectionist or Lies of the Prophet, keep reading - you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought After Reading Free Book #1 November 2, 2012
By Troy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was engaging and interesting enough for me to want to buy books #2 and #3 immediately after finishing the story told in book #1.

Each character was not always described in depth, but doing so could have subtracted from the flow of the story, and that was executed very well in this book.

The Hunting Tree is well worth your time if you like scary stories and don't mind a little gore. Because of it, I'll be looking for books by Ike Hamill at Amazon and elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait, what? March 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually enjoyed the book with the separate storylines that eventually converge. However, the incredibly short epilogue, what was that? Did the author decide he was sick of writing the book and sum up the happily ever after in one paragraph? Incredibly disappointing as I felt the rest of the book was entertaining, albeit a little morbid at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Ancient Evil in a New World November 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A band of very early Native Americans follow a shaman off a cliff.

A young boy who lost his father is an unusual specimen, according to his doctor.

A team of paranormal investigators see a long dead teen try to pull a very much alive boy into a river.

This book starts with three basic storylines and it may seem at first that they have absolutely nothing in common, but be patient because they are all inextricably linked.

At the center of the story are two people who will have a dramatic impact on the events that follow. Mike is an expert geneticist whose passion lies in exploring the paranormal. He and Gary, his partner in these explorations, have invented a device that in essence wakes up a supernatural being. Finally they are on the verge of being able to scientifically prove the existence of another realm. Which should be exciting. Unfortunately it won't end up being a good thing. Not at all.

Davey is a young boy who lost his father. He is a fairly typical nine year old boy. He has a best friend, fights with his sister and loves his mom. He is also a dreamer, and what he starts dreaming about is a monster who is coming to kill him. Why? Because Davey, while looking and acting like a typical boy, has something in his blood that is anything but.

The past, present and future are all about to collide in a fury of death and destruction.

This author did an excellent job of ramping up the tension and danger throughout the book. It begins with a ghost story, but when the fur starts to fly it is an unimaginable gore fest that made it nearly impossible for me to stop or even slow down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trilogy of imagination! April 20, 2014
By Connie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book of this trilogy was free...and then I HAD to buy the whole thing. The premise is unusual and very interesting. It is a ghost story of sorts, with ancient myths thrown in. One of the main characters actually talks about the authors premise for writing this book to begin with. The only thing I was never really clear on, is where this all takes place. For my personal visualization, that would have been helpful - of course, if I was more familiar with New England that would not have been a problem.

I guess I am going to have to get the next story...:)

I kept seeing it as a film of it while I read it. The ending was a little abrupt but I hope someone picks it up and asks Ike Hamill to write the film script.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good until the end.
The book was very good and held my attention,until the end. It is like the author had to quickly wrap it up and didn't quite know how to finish it. Anticlimactic.

More About the Author

Ike Hamill writes fast-paced horror novels with strong, relatable characters. Since 2011 his books have gained a steady following amongst readers who enjoy his blend of sci-fi, paranormal, occult, and suspense. His first series, "The Hunting Tree," became popular enough for Ike to leave his day job and focus entirely on writing. Since that series, Ike's popularity has grown, with "Extinct" becoming his most-read book to date. In some of his books, Ike takes on the entire world. With his recent book, "Migrators," Ike presents a story that focuses on a small family. In either setting, Ike draws compelling characters whom readers are sad to leave behind when the book is finished.

Reviewers compare Ike to Dean Koontz and Stephen King--two of his favorite authors. His narrative often jumps between interwoven stories, presenting readers with a fresh perspective and keeping them guessing until the last chapter. Join Ike's mailing list at and he'll send you a free copy of his next book. Most of Ike's readers are repeat customers. Pick up one of his books to learn why.
