So, you think Stephen King writes a scary novel? Well, think again, because Michaud may well have surpassed him by a few notches. At least in my opinion. But let me tell you what really drew me into the story...the writing. It was incredibly good and frankly, it caught me by surprise. I'm not gonna lie, straight horror books aren't really my thing. I certainly don't mind elements of paranormal, but prefer a little romance, too. However, I didn't really miss it like I thought I would because her ...more

I know I promised this review Friday but my reading slowed. Not because it wasn't good, oh no, it hooked me and chilled me to the bone! If you're feeling a bit warm because of the weather this'll surely cool you down right away! It just slowed and that happens sometimes.

I honestly didn't know what to expect when starting Hunter's Trap. All I knew was that this should be good because Anne Michaud sure knows how t

Hunter's Trap is a heart wrenching and chilling tale of life, death, and what comes beyond. Dayton and his brother Jeremy, city boys who think that cell phone compass apps are a good idea, venture into the woods in a snow storm because their father and his fellow hunters have gone missing. The last message they received from their father was alarming and cuts off abruptly with gunfire. With a storm about to rage and the rangers apparently unwilling to help, they go off on their own to try and sa ...more

I am a huge fan of Anne Michaud's eerie writerly creations but Hunter's Trap is one of my favorites. Her unique voice and superb ability to hike up the tension at exactly the right moments kept me turning pages until I'd stayed up way past my bedtime...and that was a bad idea because this story is creepy and shudder inducing --in all the right ways.

It's also a great a story about survival, family, and bonds that can't be broken no matter what. I enjoyed the journey and got caught up in the emot

Hunter's Trap has it all for horror fans who crave more substance to a creepy story. The brothers Dayton and Jeremy have a complex relationship that evolves over the course of their journey to find their missing father. Even the villain Hunter is deeper than your average ghost, with a history and motivations that almost make me sympathize with him at times. On top of the rich characters is the dark and suspenseful story that will make you look a little closer at the shadows around you. Highly re ...more

Definitely a good read. Jumps right in with both feet from the beginning and keeps you going right to the last page. Recommended to anyone who likes to walk on the spooky side.

Written by: S.T. King

Hunter’s Trap, written by Anne Michaud is a paranormal tale – a thriller about a dusty ole cabin in the woods; more specifically, it’s about a young boy and his feisty little brother – and their date with the spirits haunting the cabin’s land.

The tale starts out with Dayton Mulligan, and his little brother Jeremy sneaking in the cabin to seek refuge from a blizzard. Their plan is simple: to find their father who came to these lands with a group of friends. They went for hunt

Horror isn't my usual genre. The author is an acquaintance though so when she asked for a review, I said yes. I did warn her that it's not my preferred reading. With that said, I enjoyed the book more than I expected. This horror novel has ghosts, some good, some evil, and a terrifying story of two boys fighting for their lives while they try to find their missing father. The story is really about two families, both dysfunctional, one trying to survive and one that is looking for both vengeance ...more

This book was ok. I liked it enough that I was curious about the ending and read the whole book, and I'm glad I finished it.

I felt that character development was lacking and that I really didn't get to know the characters even though there were so few of them in the book. The book dragged a bit for me, especially the first half. The second half had a lot going on but I found the writing confusing at times and it jumped around a lot which made some parts of the story a little hard to follow. Som

This was a very scary, creepy read. It's also fairly gory, so be warned. Two brothers head into the snowy woods in search of their father and his hunting buddies who haven't returned. What they find isn't good. The author pulls no punches with the 'ick' factor. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say for a YA horror novel it was surprisingly grim.

Terrifying story that really makes you think. The characters are developed more deeply and more surprisingly than most horror novels, and the twists and turns keep coming! Not for the faint of heart...
