When her half-eaten remains are discovered, the blame falls upon a herd of wild hogs, a serious threat in this rural community. In response, the county’s best trackers, including game warden Jack Cates and ex-military Tufa Bronwyn Chess, are assembled to hunt them down. Kara’s boyfriend Duncan Gowen mourns her death, until he finds evidence she cheated on him with his best friend, Adam Procure.

As this second death rocks the town, people begin to wonder who is really responsible. Determined hunters pursue the ravenous horde through the Appalachians as other Tufa seek their own answers. Between literal beasts in the woods and figurative wolves in sheep’s clothing, what truths will arise come spring?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A lush, descriptive, and darkly creative blend of real-world mystery, deeply insightful character study, and a rich exploration of folklore.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Beautifully atmospheric…Bledsoe comfortably inhabits the space where rural fantasy and magic realism overlap and makes it his own.” Publishers Weekly
“A must-read for fantasy or literary-fiction fans and also a perfect fit for a mystery lover seeking something a little different.” Booklist
“The latest entry in this marvelous series combines human drama with just a touch of otherworldly magic. The split nature of the Tufa community is further explored, but Bledsoe never reduces the two sides to basic good vs. evil, as he allows his characters to make their own choices.” Library Journal

Story

Another special treat from Alex Bledsoe and Stefan Rudnicki

I love this series, and really think Alex and Stefan are a perfect match — they can do no wrong. This story was a little less visceral for me than some of the others, but the series as a whole has my devotion and I will certainly continue to listen. Alex introduces new characters and ideas in a seamless fashion, while weaving a consistent and unifying thread throughout. Stefan does an amazing job with both male and female characters, and his voice has a way of imbuing events with gravity and significance. This story almost seemed like an appetizer, because you know that there is unfinished business even though on the surface things have been settled. It made me consider that justice is not always fair, and slightly different circumstances could easily lead to opportunities for atonement and redemption, especially when we make mistakes at a very young age and really don't know any better.
