Blizzard conditions in October? Freezing weather? What’s going on? Since I was huddled at home on Saturday listening to trees cracking and crashing all around me I figured I’d read about people colder and much more on edge than myself.
In the middle of nowhere Canada – truly, middle of nowhere – it is usually about twenty below on a warm day in the winter. Also in this small town in the middle of nowhere is one of the scariest creatures ever. For this cold place has been the home for a creature of the cold. A creature that hungers for the young. A creature who transforms his prey into creatures of the cold like itself.
While in some ways this is the typical horror monster tale, it is very different in its crafting. It’s a very different retelling of the Native American wendigo story. The monster isn’t as you’d expect and the way it hunts is very unique. If you’re looking for a fun action-packed tale that keeps you guessing, and keeps you freezing, get chilled to the bone with this one.
