Reviews of Black Woods: Book 1 (Black Woods Series) by Laura Wright LaRoche

Lionrhod reviewed on Feb. 7, 2013

Read this several months ago and it's still haunting me. The heroines were intelligent and relate-able. The premise really creepy-especially for someone who loves spending time in the woods-and the writing evocative. The author almost lost me just before the end. For a few minutes I was saying, "Oh, no, she didn't." And then the surprise twist at the very end brought me back and made me a fan.

Surprising heroines, rather original story and a good horror story as a whole.

An enchanting horror tale filled with mystery surrounding the forest in which four young men and two older women enjoy but learn to fear. Was the wooded area haunted or did a horrific beast roamed them looking for its next meal?

Starts off as a simple contemporary story that quickly becomes a thrilling horror story, leaving the reader wanting more. The characters are endearing, genuine while they push the smooth suspenseful terror filled plot forward. The entire premise is captivating and entertaining.

In the interest of full disclosure, the author is my aunt. That said, I was surprisingly pleased with the story. The heroine (and her side-kick sister) are in their sixties, something I found refreshing. The story centers around her and her family, their love of mushroom hunting, and a mysterious being in a section of the woods they hunt. Their fear of the creature is put to the test when four hunters go into the black woods and can't all make it out. It is a quick and easy read, but what I loved the most is that, every now and again, the author used a turn of phrase that made me laugh out loud. For instance, when a carload of young men are teasing each other, she says, "laughter filled the car like poisonous gas." It was a fun read.
