In the woods of the Luke Miller State Park, north of Eastham, NJ, an urban legend lives in peace with nature. You don’t bother it and it will leave you alone. A simple rule to live by and one the park rangers enforce.

The book starts out strong, and we rapidly get into the “Cabin-In-The-Woods” creepiness, a subcategory of horror I really enjoy. Oh and there’s a big stinky creature lurking nearby.

One of the main issues I struggled to comprehend was the “meh” attitude of the characters when they find out one of them is abusing their spouse. It just didn’t seem realistic to me, granted I’ve also never been in that situation; if I found out my sister in law was getting smacked around we’d be outta there and getting her support asap! It feels bizarrely wrong that you’d want to keep camping in the face of domestic violence. This was a sticking point for me and I couldn’t enjoy the book as much as I initially had.

The Cryptid parts were interesting, there were a few other odd add-ins to the plot, like the criminals. Overall this was a decent, quick read. I definitely liked the Oilers reference, being an Edmontonian myself!

Thank you to NetGalley, Crossroad Press, & Gary Frank for a copy.
