Having read many of Nick Clausen’s books, I opened this book with much gusto. The entire story of a murder was told in transcript style with evidence given my each person involved in the story. Otho and Hugh visited their grandfather Fred in the coldest winter of 1917, when a series of events occurred which culminated in death.

I enjoyed how the author brought the urban legend of windego come alive in this story connecting the past to present, legend to reality. The transcript style made this a quick read, half an hour at the maximum. It was barely 100 pages.

I liked how the author tried to bring out the fear and macabre in the statements and blog posts and in calls and emails between the various characters. I felt the book tried too hard to be scary, I wasn’t scared at all.

A different style of writing along with bringing the myth to the forefront may make this an entertaining read for people who love horror. There was CANNIBALISM in the story which might put off many. Be forewarned.

I bought the digital version of the book from Amazon, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

During the winter of 2017, a series of strange occurrences took place in a small town of northern Maine. A rational explanation for what happened has still not been presented. Now, for the first time, all available evidence is being released to the public from what is commonly known as the Freyston case.

  1. Thanks for posting! Interesting recommendation. I’ve added to my TBR and will check this out a bit in the future. Interesting writing style choice by the author.

    1. Dreamland was good, it was fun… I enjoyed his other books. This not so much… I thought fear would grip me, but eating human flesh gripped me

    1. Windego myth is associated with that. I read this book with my tea and biscuits… Not a good idea🙈🙈 not at all a good idea. My appetite is actually gone

  2. “The transcript style made this a quick read, half an hour at the maximum. It was barely 100 pages” …How fast do you read? 😮😮 It would take me about 2-3 hours to read almost 100 pages! That said….this sounds scary…but it isn’t huh? 🤔🤔 Well, that’s too bad, but overall I still like the sound of this one! 😊

  3. Cannibalism is definitely not for me. I have heard of Windigo before, but I do not remember much. I like stories where myth and realism come together though. I tough decision for me here. Great review Shalini.

  4. Sorry to hear that this lacked in the fear factor despite having all the horror buzz words like cannibalism and stuff. Great review though.
