Product Description

Product Description

There's something in the woods behind Jake Marsden's house - and someone wants him to find it. A strange dream shatters his sleep, night after night, and a compulsion to find the dark presence in the forest wars with his logical and ordered nature. What's a geek to do?

When his small hometown of Wynn, North Carolina falls under an ancient curse, Jake will find himself in a battle against creatures worse than any he's faced in a game. Playing for keeps, it will be geek versus god in the fight to stop an evil force bent on destroying everything he holds dear.

The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth - If They Live Long Enough.

After creating a series of short fantasy pieces for a class assignment that were received with praise, he was hooked on writing fiction for the entertainment of others. Now Brandon writes supernatural horror as well as fantasy, science fiction, and other genres. His short fiction is available online in various formats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ancient evil awakes 28 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed reading this, i's a dark tale about a geek (Jake Marsden) who's experiencing terrible dreams about something strange in the woods behind his house. He investigates but discovers little before the ancient evil awakes and attacks his town. With a small group of survivors he has to battle this evil to save the town.

The pacing is good, the book builds with some creepy dreams and odd occurrences while building up the characters central to the unfolding events. The mark of a good read is that you don't notice how many pages you've read and this was the case with this book. The pace increases as the book progresses and soon the attack on the town begins.

The group of friends then have to fight the dark forces attacking the town, not only to survive, but to prevent the evil; from spreading.

As I said at the beginning I enjoyed reading this, the writing is excellent and slips through without any great effort and I'd finished the book almost without reading it. The author writes well, setting the scene with skill and maintaining the pace needed for a tale like this.

For me there were two down points to the book, the first was the conclusion, after the excellent build up it all ended a little easily and quickly. In fairness this isn't a big complaint, the ending is a satisfactory one.

My other issue was the evil itself, I'm a reader that enjoys learning about the dark forces as play and I would have liked to have discovered more about the entity causing the evil at the heart of the story. Again it's a minor issue, but one that along with the first marred the ending for me, but not enough not to recommend this as a decent horror read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good fantasy horror read. 26 April 2014
By frenchie TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest, I downloaded the book first without reading about it. I just loved the title and fell in love with the cover. Once I downloaded it, I read the blurb.
I knew it would be good but I didn't expect it to be so good.
In a little town of North Carolina, where Jake, a computer programmer lives, an ancient evil stirs and awakes in the woods. Jake is having disturbing dreams about a light, Strange dreams that are real. He actually walks in them but something, fear he thinks, prevents him to pass beyond a certain point. But is it really fear or something that watches over him?
The story is well presented and I have enjoyed it. It is more a thriller than real horror, even though you have a breed of zombies running loose. Well, they are undead but they are not the usual man flesh eaters zombies. They are killing machines and they are the servants of that evil spirit not yet on full strength.
The only thing I have a little gripe with is that the final battle was a little bit too fast and too easy for my liking. I would have like to see a little bit more fighting and I would have loved to know why the ancient evil was re-wakening now. What was the significance of the time. Frostwalker, yes, but why that winter and not any other?
I believe though it is history repeating itself, with reincarnations of some sorts, but this is my assumption.
Nevertheless, it is a very good story and I have no hesitation in recommending it to lovers of fantasy and horror. It is not just horror, you do have a nice storyline of loyalty and friendship akin to brotherhood, and Jake and Eric are two very likeable guys .
A well deserved 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Intense Vintage Zombie Horror Debut . . . 10 May 2013
By Jackie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an original zombie tale. I know, I know, how can a book with zombies be original. Well, apparently that is still possible to pull off, as Brandon R. Luffman flawlessly accomplishes just that in FROSTWALKER, his full length horror debut. The amount of love put into this story, it's characters, and even the setting itself is apparent from the moment you crack this book open.

Frostwalker, Brandon R. Luffman's horror debut, will remind you of what it's like to be young again, of what it's like to fall in love, of what it's like to experience true terror (only this time, your fears are justified!) This really is so much more than a zombie novel. It's magic steeped in history and used to conjure your worst fears into reality.

The stormy winter atmosphere fits perfectly with this chilling tale, yet the narrative flow and characters have a way of making you feel as though you are sitting beside a campfire, huddled under a woolen blanket, sipping at herbal tea, watching the crackling flames of the fire as your most trusted guide tells you ghost stories that make you start to question every sound in every bush and what may lurk in every shadow.

The twists and turns and plot developments of this story will leave you reeling. I didn't see any of the twists coming, but I'm so glad they came! Once you find out why and how the dead are walking, you'll see exactly why I say this is a truly original zombie tale.

FROSTWALKER is a book to savor, as I promise you will be mourning the loss of these characters in your life once you close the final chapter. It is a novel that is truly unforgettable. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made me afraid to go to sleep! 14 May 2013
By laurathomas61 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I heard the theme from Jaws when I started reading this.

No one gets eaten in the beginning of Frostwalker though. But, the terror creeps up on you slowly as the author breathes atmosphere and dread into the story, like an eerie, slow rolling mist.

Jake has been dreaming about a Light in the woods. Dreaming about it for weeks. A Light in the woods behind his house.

It calls to him, pulling him from his sleep. He finds himself standing in the frigid cold, facing the stand of trees, night after night.

His sleepless nights begin to wear him down, make him question his sanity, so he confides in his best friend and fellow geek, Eric.

These two have been best friends since they were knee-high to a grasshopper. They've stuck together through thick and thin, and Eric sees no reason to change that now.

Whatever's in the woods is growing stronger, leaching into the small town, changing people. Those it doesn't consume, it inhabits, taking over their bodies and minds and turning them loose on others.

The sleepy little town of Wynn is in the midst of the worst snow storm anyone can remember, cutting the inhabitants off and they have no idea of the evil moving closer, advancing house by house towards the heart of the town.

I like a story about men as best friends. It's like being a fly on the wall, watching how they bond and act when women aren't present. Jake and Eric are a good example.

When Jake finally sees her, I mean really sees Nancy, his receptionist, he realizes he's been in love with her for a long time.

Eric and his girlfriend, Wendy, cut Jake no slack, ribbing him about how long it took him to take off his blinders.

Nancy is gentler on him. She fell in love with the shy geek that is Jake, and has just been biding her time.

You can't help but become attached to these four. The author does an excellent job of giving each one their own unique personalities. Each voice stands out and makes for fun reading.

When the horror ramps up, you'll be pulling for these guys, cringing when things go bad, as you can see no good outcome.

That's when it gets even more intense, as the entity in the woods must be confronted and stopped.

I was reminded of a couple of movies while reading Frostwalker. The small town, isolated by snow and ice, had me thinking of 30 Days of Night.

And the insidious power of the entity also reminded me of the movie, Phantoms, from the Dean Koontz book. How the power takes over the town with a palpable presence.

Jake and Eric are ready. They've prepared. It's time to see what's in the woods. And they won't be going alone.

Cue some sinister music and the chills will run up and down your spine!

I received this book from the author for my honest review. Thanks so much Brandon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great character development and interesting twist 10 May 2013
By J. Holbrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The author did an amazing job creating believable characters that most anyone can identify with and with it set in a state that I live in made it even more interesting. The different twist on the zombie apocalypse made it a joy to read. I love the fact that it included some information on the cherokee people. Definitely a joy to read. The progression of interactions between the main characters is very well done and brings to mind my own personal experiences in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ancient evil has never been this good! 14 Oct. 2013
By Horror_Nerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
There's something in the woods behind Jake Marsden's house, and it determined to be found. From the constant urging of nightly dreams, Jake wanders through the night stopping short of the dark woods. Soon he will discover his dreams and experiences are all part of an ancient evil lurking within his hometown of Wynn, North Carolina.

Author Brandon R. Luffman's debut novel gives the reader a different take on the zombie tale, filled with intrigue,wonderful setting, and relatable characters.

From the start, Jake Marsden is haunted by dreams of a light in the woods behind his house. The author sets the tone and mood letting the readers know something is not right. Is it Marsden himself or something else? The mystery is there to solve with the characters.

The backdrop for this story is set in small town Wynn, Carolina during the winter. Through Luffman's style and descriptive writing, you immediately get a feel for the citizen's, and when things go south you are right there with them trying to survive.

Jake Marsden is your typical geek. he loves video games, tech, and horror movies. The reoccurring dreams have him worried, and he reaches out to his best friend Eric for help. Through the persistence of Eric, Jake eventually talks to Nancy(a co-worker) and rids himself of his social awkwardness, in time to try to save his town.

"Frostwalker" has it all: A range of great characters, awesome setting, and a good dose of ancient terror to go around.
