Summary

Ranger Craig James is an advisor to a Hollywood crew filming deep in North Carolina’s misty hills. Ancient Cherokee legends have long warned of giant wolves that once ruled over the woods. Now, footprints in the dark forest reveal that the beasts have returned to reclaim their territory. The film crew, the townspeople, the police, a motley band of TV monster hunters, and even the army seem helpless against them. They should have listened to Craig’s warnings before the stealthy wolves came shrieking out of the night. But a Cherokee medicine man may still hold the answers to their threat.

Jim Miller, writing as J. Esker Miller, has always had a fascination with big dogs. He has raised Irish wolfhounds and Great Danes, and he’s heard stories about other cultures’ oversized canines in his travels around the world as a military and civilian airline pilot. In countries from China to Italy, there are stories of giant supernatural canines who terrorize their human neighbors. Many native American tribes have their own tales of the “Great Wolf”. In this, his third Terror book, Jim gives us a glimpse into the wolves’ mind and personality. They, like our domestic dogs, can be loving, kind, and sympathetic - or they can be the most vicious predators mankind has ever faced.

Not a stand alone story

I have not read the authors previous books but the narrator told me the author see's these books as stand alone's so gave it a go. I greatly beg to differ on this point, this is definitely not a stand alone book, it constantly refers back to events which happened in past. The focus of this book is on a film crew who were making a film about said past events from the perspective of documenting Craig and his wife's escape from the attacking wolves. I found the continuous referencing to the past quite annoying as there's obviously chunks of story I just don't have access to. I will have to read the previous books to fill in those gaps.

I was more interested in the underlying activity of the wolves, what they got up to and how the terrified human's handled the wolves living in the same space. I would have liked to have seen much more wolf action, but it was only drip fed. I wouldn't say this was a bad story, obviously people who have read the previous books would have a smoother transition through this book than me, but I wasn't fond of the constant film crew narrative which was heavy throughout the book. The way Craig ended the story was rather odd I won't spoil it, but it leant towards a more supernatural ending which was not very believable. The ending was also left open for a Book 4.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and voluntarily left this review.
