Review by: Smhunt on Aug. 22, 2011 :
Really exciting and suspenseful story set in a place that has always been mysterious to ne and reminded me of a wildwest of sorts. Had me captivated to the very end . Unfortunately I thought the e ding was weak leaving many things only forcefully resolved. Not at all on par withe rest of the novel. Still worth the read though. And releasing it on smashwords was great too. Allowed me to buy the book on my iPhone from Lake superior provincial park while on vacation - worth every penny!

Found this book to be very well written.Capitivating, hard to put down once you start reading it.My wife was born and raised in Beardmore and is not one to do much reading but she also read and enjoyed the book. Was very surprised to find a local writer who could write a book such as this that kept the reader interested right to the very end. We hope Mr.Lavoie will be writing more books and look forward to his next one.

I purchased this book on the strength of the columns written by the author for the Times Star Greenstone. I have not read the book yet but I am looking forward to it.
