review 1: I would give this book 3.5 stars. It started out really well. Malfi was able to create an eerie, claustrophobic atmosphere. The introduction of Eddie Clement early in the novel raised many questions and made me want to keep reading to find out what was happening. I found the pacing of the novel slowed down in the middle section, but picked up towards the end. I thought the characters were will developed and I cared what happened to them. Malfi is not afraid to kill them off either. Overall it was an enjoyable novel.
review 2: Ronald Malfi's debut novel for Leisure Horror is an interesting and tautly written horror story. While some might label this as an atypical "people cut off from the world in a small town by some imaginable horror" I actually liked it for
... morewhat it was...and the main characters in this novel which made it all the more intriguing. Todd Curry, a lawyer trying to make a cross-coutry flight to see his son for Christmas, gets stranded with dozens of other passengers...and a few of them decided to band together and rent a vehicle to take them the rest of their trip. They get lost, snowbound, and end up stuck in the small town of Woodson, where strange things have occurred. People have been killed...and worse. The snow holds a very dark secret to an unimaginable terror. The relationship between Todd and Kate, one of the stranded, was cute and real, as well as both their back stories. Todd and Kate manage to survive an onslaught as they hole up in a convenience store with a young woman from town, but soon the body count rises, which is a tad bit predictable, but hey...this IS a horror novel. Malfi does a nice job of layering the tension and building the story to its mostly satisfying climax. This reader would've liked more of an explanation as to what the "twisting, spiralling" things in the snow were...but all in all, I would recommend this to other horror fans, as well as read Malfi's next novel. less
