Another fantabulous read, but would recommend reading The Beast of Barcroft first... This one can stand alone, but the context and history of the previous will make this one all the more enjoyable... Northwoods has a similar flavor and appeal as Beast, mixing science, native traditions, and seemingly unrelated legends/mythos w/ those things creeping around in the dark corners of our imaginations... The Back and forth between character perspectives and locales makes for some delightful mini cliff hangers, which in turn ratchets up the tension and chills... There's some incredible attention to detail, and precision of research, creating a rich and rereadable experience... Found myself rewinding on several occasions to reread a particularly enjoyable passage or humorous happening, and you will absolutely catch yourself laughing out loud at many points... Vivid settings and characters beyond engaging... The team's grouping is interestingly diverse w/o beating you over the head w/ it...It's a fun trip into the weird and arcane, and if you like that sorta of stuff like me you'll undoubtedly appreciate this cryptothriller story and series... Think I just coined a term;) Quite excited for book 3, and have it on good authority that it has recently been recently turned into its publisher... Worth the credit, price, or whatever, and you're welcome...

If you could sum up Northwoods in three words, what would they be?
What other book might you compare Northwoods to and why?
While this is direct sequel to The Beast Of Barcroft, the author has upped his game tremendously. And while Beast was quite good, Northwoods is Great! We have many of the same players here and a few new ones.
Which scene was your favorite?
The battle on the lake and the "cavalry" arriving.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes actually. What happens to Gus and then Ben. That's all I can say without spoilers.
Any additional comments?
I have already pre-ordered the third book in this series and am hoping for many more. But the series needs some way of identifying it so that we can direct more people to it. A very well done novel and well worth seeking out.
