This one starts with a hangover ridden Nathan Mires. He's done this many times in the last two years.
At one time Nathan was happily married to Gloria and they have twin daughters.
That all ended when Nathan had set up a date to go fly fishing with his best friend Phil Pruitt a trip that Phil cancelled at the last minute because he was called in to work. Nathan laughed it off and said he would go alone.
Gloria wished him luck and headed back into the house and Nathan headed out. He stopped to get gas and discovered he'd left his wallet at home. Back home he goes to find a utility truck #415 parked at his house. The truck is the vehicle his friend Phil drives.
Wondering what the hell is going on Nathan goes in the house to hear laughter upstairs. Once there he opens his bedroom door to find Gloria and Phil in bed together. All through this Nathan is hearing voices in his head. Voices he's never heard before. Nathan kills Phil and is arrested. He gets off with a manslaughter charge and from then on his live went straight into the s**tter.
Nathan is late for work and ends up in the office where his supervisor is getting ready to fire him. Once again those voices make themselves know and Nathan kills his supervisor.
Nathan knows that this time man slaughter won't be on the books. He knows he has to run for his life so he heads to the National Forrest. A place he knows quite well.
Nathan, before his marriage, was a trapper and guide. He's more than capable in the wilderness and that's where he's headed. A place he can thwart his pursuers in and a place he can survive in.
So begins one pretty good read.
This one has Nathan, Gloria, Nathans two daughters, the Assiagah, a gorge with a curse, a Cherokee shaman named Atolyah, a Sheriff named Fritz, another Sheriff and his posse who pursue Nathan with revenge on their minds, a Nathan who kills them all, a search party, a group of campers, a man named Mason Clardy, a man who poses as a reverend, a man who fools many, his 300 devoted followers, Zion Ridge, cannibalism, a captured Sheriff Fitz, a bomb, a Nathan the Cherokee and Atolyah working together to stop the darkness from the gorge, the Cherokee who offer Nathan sanctuary on the reservation and Nathan and his family thinking they have beaten the odds till the last minute.
Nathan Mires is comfortable in and knows the mountains well, it is the obvious place to flee when voices in his head cause him to go on a murderous rampage, but the voices know the mountains very well too and tighten their grip on him, using him as a physical force to defend their sacred grounds against any they deem as unwanted intruders. Nathan is powerless against them and succumbs to their will, killing more. The story could have followed a predictable path here, with a background of Native American spirits in a wild and lonely environment, but new storylines and layers are added to an already thrilling creepfest. A pastor with a devoted following stirs up trouble in the local town, setting his flock on a collision course with Mires and a far darker evil than even a cult leader with a god complex can comprehend.
