A supernatural thriller/horror, Season of the Wolf takes place in the mountain town of Silver Gap, Colorado. It's a place where everyone has secrets, and those secrets aren't always that well kept.

It's a Nature vs Man story - man has created the conditions that force a response from Nature. That response is bone chilling in the extreme. You begin to wonder just what other surprises may be lurking out in the little traveled wilderness.

There's a lot of characters to keep track of, but none of them are "filler" characters. The characters, primarily Alex, grow and evolve throughout the progression of the story - something I feel is important. After all, who wants to read a book where you can predict the main characters' every action?

There's blood and gore but, since I tend to read zombie fiction, it wasn't extreme to me. Those who are used to kindler, gentler novels may find the gore a bit off-putting.

The pacing in the beginning was a bit slow for my tastes, however at about the 45% mark it picked up and took off. After that point, I could barely put the book down, reading the last half in under a day.

I could hear echos of Steven King and Dean Koontz while reading Season of the Wolf and, for this genre, there's no better praise than that.
