Savage Woods is one of the best books that I have read this year! This is my first time reading Mary SanGiovanni, but it won't be my last! Believe the hype! Savage Woods is all grit and no quit. I'm never going into Nilhollow, and you can take that to the bank. This book kept getting better and better as the story progresses. I couldn't put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen. Mary SanGiovanni grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go until the epic conclusion. Mary SanGiovanni doesn't disappoint.
I love Indigenous and Native American legends! Nilhollow is located in New Jersey's Pine Barrens. Some say the woods are haunted, others say there are tree spirits and all-powerful forest gods. Hikers have gone insane and killed themselves in those woods. Julia Russo flees after her douchebag of an ex-boyfriend, Darren, runs her off the road. Julia vanishes in the woods, and it is up to State Trooper Peter Grainger to find her. He will stop at nothing to find Julia. I will stop there because I don't want to give too much away.
Savage Woods is a helluva book! In fact, it is one of the best books that I have read this year!
WARNING: Enter Nilhollow at your own risk!
I highly recommend this book to fans of horror!
