A cool spring evening in Virginia is interrupted by the arrival of strange dog and on its heels even stranger events. Will one man be enough to fend off a pack of wild hounds in order to save his family?
I have to say I'm more than a little moved by this story. It not only scares me on a spiritual level, but also on an emotional level. It speaks to a greater battle that we as humans often never consider.
There was a malevolence in the story that stayed with me every time I had to put it down. A nagging feeling of what was to come.
Five stars for being highly entertaining and thought provoking.
I would highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a dark /psychological/spiritual thriller, and really, to anyone looking for a highly entertaining story with impact.
