It’s the house of their dreams. Former marine Harry and his wife, Sasha, have packed up their life and their golden retriever, Dash, and fled the corporate rat race to live off the land in rural Idaho. Their breathtaking new home sits on more than forty acres of meadow, aspen trees, and pine forest in the Teton Valley. Even if their friends and family think it’s a strange choice for an up-and-coming pair of urban professionals, Harry and Sasha couldn’t be happier about the future they’re building, all by their lonesome.
That is, until their nearest neighbors, Dan and Lucy Steiner, come bearing more than housewarming gifts. Dan and Lucy warn Harry and Sasha of a malevolent spirit that lives in the valley, one that with every season will haunt them in fresh, ever-more-diabolical ways. At first, it seems like an old wives’ tale. But when spring arrives, so does the first evil manifestation, challenging everything Harry and Sasha thought they knew about the world.
As each season passes, the spirit grows stronger, the land more sinister, and each encounter more dangerous. Will Harry and Sasha learn the true meaning of a forever home before it’s too late? Haunting and bone-chilling, Old Country is a spellbinding debut in the horror genre.

Old Country by Matt & Harrison Query 04/27/22
This book hits all the marks if you appreciate a good horror story. Set in the west on the Idaho side of the Teton Mountains, you experience all the seasons the mountain country has to offer, with a twist. A force older than the land itself also holds residence in the area, and if you hope to keep it at bay you must adhere to the rituals handed down over time. The characters are relatable and the pace is fast and suspenseful. This is definitely in the top three of new horror for 2022.
This one was a creepy read! I read the whole creepypasta short story it was based on in a Reddit post a few years back, so some of the info was still fresh in my mind. For those of you that have already read the short story, this version adds alot more background into the main characters and neighbors. But I feel like in order to get the scariest read from this, I would go in blind and not knowing what to expect. This book will be chilling even for an experienced horror reader!
What a uniquely creepy story! Harry and Sasha, have packed up and moved to the most ruralist area of the mountains of Idaho. They have left urban living to be become self sufficient on 40 acres of land.
It's not long before their nearest neighbors come to warn them of an angry spirit in the area and what needs to be done to keep it happy. Harry and Sasha react with disbelief but soon learn that there are real spirits in the area and they are not to be taken lightly.
Totally creepy, totally unique. If you love a scary story, then Old Country is for you!
That is, until their nearest neighbors, Dan and Lucy Steiner, #GrandCentralPublishing #NetGalley #NetGalleyReads #OldCountry #MattQuery
