Where the Chill Waits This is one of my favorite books I thought this did deep woods horror as well as anything I ve ever read. I m a big fan of this kind of horror novel, especially when it s done correctly Martindale nails the slow pace needed to get you to the sort of insane climax of the story without losing you along the way Creepy and really fun to read It s out of print, so I had to track down a beat up, used paperback copy of this online to read it, but it was worth the effort. I was originally led to this book when I went toin search of Crooked Tree a movie adaption of which will soon be filming near my home A review of the book mentioned this one, and following the link provided evenreviews about how frightening this novel was The reviews alone had me purchasing this novel over Crooked Tree immediately.I was not disappointed.There is a reasonable amount of build up in the beginning, some foreshadowing and mood setting that keeps the book from gettin I was originally led to this book when I went toin search of Crooked Tree a movie adaption of which will soon be filming near my home A review of the book mentioned this one, and following the link provided evenreviews about how frightening this novel was The reviews alone had me purchasing this novel over Crooked Tree immediately.I was not disappointed.There is a reasonable amount of build up in the beginning, some foreshadowing and mood setting that keeps the book from getting to a banging start However, it is well worth the wait.Like the old movie Jaws, this movie all about atmosphere, speculation, things that happen either out of the reader s view or realm of understandingand the pay off is every bit as fantastic as that first much awaited glimpse of the shark in Jaws.The characters are well thought out Even the heroes of the novel have faults that keep them from being one dimensional You can find something to relate to in the lead characters with ease, and better yetsomething familiar about the secondary characters as well This alone will keep you interested through the beginning of the novel until the real action starts.I also did not see where this book was going I thought I did, but about half way through, Martindale took it some place new I always appreciate a twist I don t see coming, since I feel like so many novels these days end up following a simple formula that we ve all come to expect when reading.My other favorite part about this particular book was Martindale s style He is not overly verbose or descriptive, but just descriptive enough to paint a picture in your mind s eye with ease Reading this book, for me at least, was also like watching it unfold in my imagination like a movie Why no one has adapted this book into a feature film is beyond me.In short, would I recommend this book Absolutely It s not a rock em, sock em romp full of violence and screams, but it is a chilling tale with a frightening storyline and its own fair share of horror before the awesome climax I loved it, and I fully intend to seek out Martindale s other three books when I can This would be 3.5 stars if we could do half stars on here Its better than just okay but it isn t quite great Martindale is a gifted writer, and I m a little bummed that this is the 4th and final book I ve read of his Its unfortunate that he didn t write , as he is leagues better than many authors who hopped on the horror boom in the 80s then disappeared after the horror bust of the mid 90s This book has a great first act, with Martindale giving us a very juicy backwoods horror setup The This would be 3.5 stars if we could do half stars on here Its better than just okay but it isn t quite great Martindale is a gifted writer, and I m a little bummed that this is the 4th and final book I ve read of his Its unfortunate that he didn t write , as he is leagues better than many authors who hopped on the horror boom in the 80s then disappeared after the horror bust of the mid 90s This book has a great first act, with Martindale giving us a very juicy backwoods horror setup The writing is highly effective and creepy, it gets under your skin The second act, or the middle of the book kind of surprised me With that fantastic setup, I thought we were in for a long, dark journey into the deepest darkest woods, with maybe light at the end of the tunnel at the end of the book Instead we have kind of a mini climax halfway through, then a lengthy regrouping section, then finally, the big finale I thought the book suffered a bit in the regrouping phase It kind of loses momentum and then tries to build it back up again The finale is good, and made for an overall satisfying read So, beyond a few things with its structure and pace that I didn t particularly enjoy, this was overall a good read I think I enjoyed both Demon Dance and especially Nightblood quite a bitthan this one Mr Martindale, come out of retirement You re a good writer and I d love to readstuff by you T Chris Martindale doesn t disappoint I first read his book Night blood and followed it with this book A suspenseful novel with an array of characters that were so very well written Each chapter just builds into uneasiness It also had an uncommon villain that I don t find in a lot of horror novels It actually made me wary of the woods too Very well written I ll probably read it again Is this author still out there I can only find four novels. I read this some time ago and it is one of my favorites A young up and coming executive is pressured into going on a hunting trip with his wealthy, egotistical boss, along with other execs They are flown deep into the wilderness and it soon becomes apparent the entire affair is some power trip and test of their manliness After much hardship and infighting, they lose their way and stumble into the territory of a Wendigo a berserker demon from American Indian lore A clever plot and expertly I read this some time ago and it is one of my favorites A young up and coming executive is pressured into going on a hunting trip with his wealthy, egotistical boss, along with other execs They are flown deep into the wilderness and it soon becomes apparent the entire affair is some power trip and test of their manliness After much hardship and infighting, they lose their way and stumble into the territory of a Wendigo a berserker demon from American Indian lore A clever plot and expertly done with an insane creature rampage climax that had me talking out loud Holy crap as I turned the pages Slow moving and very creepy first half We stayed at a bed and breakfast in the woods when I was about halfway through and I had to stop reading until we came home End was a little cheesy but worked well It all reminded me a little of the perils of punky episode of Punky Brewster that scared the shit out of me as a child Minus the weirdo boss, of course.

Gonzalez – 9facts.co.uk and the survivors of the lurking entity s fury will bear its evil out into the world A unique survival piece dealing with Indian mythology, corporate greed, and readjusting to daily routines I love how the author clearly researched the Thunder Bay area to paint a vibrant and immense setting of the Canadian wilderness. A hunting trip in the Canadian wilderness goes horribly wrong when a group of men encounter a legendery spirit A hungry spirit that passes its unholy appetite on to those it doesn t kill One of Martindale s best, recommended for those with an interest in the Wendigo legend.
