Description from Publisher:
“Ex–Delta Force Davis Holland, now an agent for the Customs and Border Protection, has seen it all. But nothing in his experience has prepared him for what he and the local sheriff find one freezing night in the Minnesota woods.
Investigating reports of an illegal border crossing, the two men stumble across a blood-drenched scene of mass murder, barely escaping with their lives . . . and a single clue to the mayhem: a small wooden chest placed at the heart of the massacre. Something deadly has entered Holland’s territory, crossing the border from nightmare into reality.
When news of the atrocity reaches wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severance, he sends a three-person team north to investigate. Not long ago, the members of that team—Ben McKelvie, Lindsay Clark, and Alex Standingcloud—were nearly killed by a vengeful shapeshifter. Now they are walking wounded, haunted by gruesome memories that make normal life impossible. But there is nothing normal about the horror that awaits in the Northwoods. ”
I loved the writing style of this book, and the story itself was great. It was well-written and the mythology was there and was fun to explore. The characters were people I could relate to and felt like real people. I also enjoyed the reference to Marvel Comics. It’s funny I thought that this book’s monster was going to be a sea monster of some kind but the monster did not disappoint. I kinda hope there’s more in this series with Ben and Severance hunting monsters together. This book is set to come out February 16, 2016.
