One of the best books I've read in a very long time. It's title is perfectly appropiate and this horror book got me into a whole new genre of books. The book was interesting and perfectly intriguing. The book was chilling, cute with relationships, and an awesome thrilling page turner.

Very cool twist on the monster story. The atmosphere on middle-of-nowhere Northern Ontario in the winter adds to the creepy factor. Eligible for YRCA 2011, so vote for it!

Hang on to your seat, folks--this is a faboulous suspense/horror book. I read it all in one go as I could'nt put it down. Danny and his father move to Harvest cove and that's where the action takes place. A terrifying creature, love interest and off kilter friends all combine together to make this a great read for ages 13 and up. This author previously won awards for an earlier book entitled Acceleration. Can't wait to read that one.
