Rating: 4.8 out of 5

I usually start out these reviews with a bit of exposition about select themes I find within a given book, but this time I'd like to focus on something that is, in itself, a part of writing.

Voice.

Some writers know theirs. Some don't. With the best authors, you know who they are from the moment you read the first sentence. It's a comforting, and important, trait to have. King has it. Robbins has it. Layman and Lovecraft had it. Hemingway had it in spades, as did Fitzgerald.

And so does Daniel Pyle.

From the second I picked up Freeze, this author's new novella, I was immediately sucked in. I felt the same exact way I did when I opened Down the Drain and Dismember, previous works by Pyle - like I was about to be taken on one massive, wildly-swinging ride of terror. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed.

Freeze is the story of Warren and Tess, an older couple living high in the mountains with their dog during the snowstorm of the century. There are strange goings-on about the house after the power goes out, adding to the feeling that this isn't your garden-variety blizzard. A window breaks, showering Tess with glass. There are strange sounds outside. The family car has been seemingly vandalized. And all the while the cold and isolation creep in on this tight little family, until finally, after an emergency, Warren is forced to try and brave his way down the mountain in search of help. Little does he know, there are strange beings waiting for him out in the frigid wilderness, creatures that would love nothing more than to tear him apart.

The plot is very basic - couple trapped, flees from monsters, fights monsters, encounter terrors they never thought imaginable.

I would recommend reading this novella in one sitting, so as not to spoil the suspense (unless it is right before bed, on a snowy evening)!

The book opens with Tess and Warren living in a small, primitive cabin in the upper Rockies in the midst of a blizzard that has been storming for several days already. We find out that the couple, along with their ailing old dog, chose to remain without power because they cannot afford a motel room in town and have no friends to spend time with. (Due to the nature of a novella, the author needs to be skillful at allowing the reader to understand the plot without spending too much time sketching out the characters' back story. Mr. Pyle does an awesome job of grabbing the reader by the throat and pulling them into the frozen landscape of Tess and Warren's home). I have not read any other works of Mr. Pyle, but based on this novella alone, I would dare to compare him to Stephen King.

I cannot give too many details away without spoiling the plot, but I can say this: I loved this story because it delivers what it sets out to do; it scares the heck out of the reader and makes them want more! I commiserated with their dilemma of whether to ride out the storm at home, with Tess now violently sick and some malevolent force outside hiding in the howling winter winds, or risk walking to town and dying in the sub-freezing world outside.

This book is definitely a horror story to the core; we find out the "thing" trying to get them is not human, and there are some gory scenes here and there. But basically I found this to be a thriller; I was excited to keep reading this fast-paced novella to the end. Then the end came, and I was like...hmm... I wanted more-- I didn't want it to end at that point in the story! I needed to know more about what happened afterwards. Recommended highly!

I love thrillers and paranormal books - mostly, that's what I generally read. King, Koontz, etc... and this book was (almost) as good as those. Until it ended... with no ending. Now, I could care less (usually) how a book ends - good bad, whatever - I can handle simply not agreeing with how book ends- as long as it actually ENDS. Had it had ANY ending(other than the seemingly unfinished one that is currently there) I probably would have given 4 stars. As it stands, I am glad I got this book free for kindle and didn't pay a dime. Cause to me, all its worth is $0.00.

This is a very spooky novella about creatures of the bitter cold, appearing and terrorizing a couple and their elderly dog in the Rocky Mountains in the middle of a terrible blizzard.

What would you do? Terrible blizzard, no electricity or phone, wife injured, truck won't start...how do you get help? And then there's the little problem of EXACTLY how did your wife get injured.

The characters were well developed for a story of this length. Unique monsters. I finished it very quickly. I wish the story had been extended out. The ending felt a bit rushed and I would have liked a bit more closure.

This is a horror story so don't be surprised at a little blood and guts - literally.

Warren and Tess, along with their aging dog, living in a small, cabin in the upper Rockies. Where a blizzard has been storming for several days. The couple chose to stay in their cabin as they did not have the money to go to a hotel and they don't know their neighbor, who live about a mile away as the crow flies, all that well. tess is very ill and spiting up blood. Warren decides to try to reach their neighbors as he is very concern for Tess's health. In the storm is hidden a horrific creature. Tess and Warren must fight for there lives. Question is...Do they survive? a must read. Pyles book "Dismember" is one of my favorite horror stories. So i knew I could not go wrong with "Freeze." I was not disappointed.
