Joel (joelarnold) | 14 comments My newest horror/suspense novel, Northwoods Deep, was released this weekend. It's based loosely on both Native American folklore and Hansel & Gretel.

Northwoods Deep by Joel Arnold

Here's a description:

Bakadewin; The Ojibwe word for hunger.
Bakadewin; an ancient evil guarded by an old man in a mosquito-ridden forest.

Five children and their adult chaperone set off on a hike along the Mesaba River. All vanish without a trace except for one, too traumatized to speak. Local Ojibwe claim the Maymaygwayshi - mischievous spirits who live in the rocks along the river - stole the children.

Six years later, Carol and Brenda Gunderson embark on a canoe trip on the same river. When their canoe capsizes, they discover a cabin in the woods occupied by an old man hiding a terrible secret.

Augustus Meyer has become complacent as the guardian of an ancient evil that resides below his cabin. In a cavern piled high with the bones of its victims, it feeds off the souls of the living and rewards Meyer with mind-blowing hallucinations.

Carol's ex-husband Mitch has been secretly following her, and will stop at nothing to possess her once again. Their brother Jack searches for them while battling his own demons. Allen Gunderson reluctantly accompanies his son in an attempt to stop the remnants of his family from falling apart.

All of them merge in the deep north woods at Meyer's cabin, brought together by a calculating evil whose hunger grows as it seeks out a new guardian.

I hope you'll check it out.
