Friday Meme’s ~Northwood

Posted January 29, 2016 by Stormi in Memes / 17 Comments

BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.


Some borders should never be crossed. From the author of The Beast of Barcroft comes a waking nightmare of a horror novel that’s sure to thrill readers of Stephen King and Bentley Little.

Ex–Delta Force Davis Holland, now an agent for the Customs and Border Protection, has seen it all. But nothing in his experience has prepared him for what he and the local sheriff find one freezing night in the Minnesota woods.

Investigating reports of an illegal border crossing, the two men stumble across a blood-drenched scene of mass murder, barely escaping with their lives . . . and a single clue to the mayhem: a small wooden chest placed at the heart of the massacre. Something deadly has entered Holland’s territory, crossing the border from nightmare into reality.

When news of the atrocity reaches wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severance, he sends a three-person team north to investigate. Not long ago, the members of that team—Ben McKelvie, Lindsay Clark, and Alex Standingcloud—were nearly killed by a vengeful shapeshifter. Now they are walking wounded, haunted by gruesome memories that make normal life impossible. But there is nothing normal about the horror that awaits in the Northwoods.

Not started this one yet but it will be my first horror book of the year! I have some books to read before it but hope to get to it soon. I enjoyed the first book I read by this author, so can’t wait to give this one a try. It has the characters who survived the first book back for another dose of creature craziness…lol.

They were first detected by one of the sensors dotting the northern border. The sensor, located in a deeply forested area known for previous illegal crossings, sent it’s signal to the Operational Integration Center in Detroit, which in turn dispatched an unmanned aircraft for a closer look.

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but  you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

“What?” whispered Ben, taking a step forward. Entering the garage, he exclaimed “Oh, shit! and backed out.

Davis pulled his cell phone and dialed the sheriff’s office again, then 911, both with no answer. “Damn it,” he seethed. “All right.” Someone is dead in there, he wanted to say, but didn’t want to put it into words because that made it real, even though the voicemails and the open door and the wretched smell made it real enough already. Instead he said, “Stay here.”

“That’s not going to work for me.”

Well, something has happened but I am not sure exactly what.

book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

Can you pass by a book store without stopping in?
If I am by myself no, I can’t. I have to go in and browse. But when I am with others who are not book fanatics I can’t always persuade them to go in for a few minutes, especially if they know me and know it might be more than a few minutes…lol.

      His first book was about a beast that looked like a big cat, now this one looks like a big water animal! Love monster hunting books. 🙂

  1. Okay, this one sounds intense and horrifying…good name for horror, right? I don’t read many horror novels, but when I do, they are unforgettable. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. I LOVE that cover and couldn’t resist picking this up through Netgalley. I have read it, just need to write the review. All I can say is horror…YES! Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy reading.

      You might want to check out book one Beast of Barcroft, it has some of the same characters in it though it’s not really considered a series.
