having read Troy's previous release, Critical Incident, I was excited to see what he would do with a full sized novel.I was NOT disappointed. Drawn in by his easyflowing narrative, delivered by the main human protagonist, I found myself, very quickly within the story, looking thriugh the eyes of Ben and feeling just a little unsettled, just a tad apprehensive but unable to pinpoint exactly why. I didn't have long to wait. When things start to unravel at top secret governmental reserch facilities, they unravel fast and Troy sure has mastered the art of unravelling! But I'm in danger of giving it all away. You know that feeking, when you discover something you really like so you want to tell everybody? That's Through the Woods. Well written and well paced, with good 3 dimensional characters. Secrets, excitement and chills. They're all here. But don't just take my word for it people. Buy it. Make a start on your Troy Blackford collection because, if there's any justice in this world, or the world of good books, then this is surely the first of many by Troy Bkackford

If you like government conspiracies and psychic cats then this book will not disappoint. In fact this may be the only book to tackle the combined subject matter.

The absurdity of the situation is carried well by some oddly endearing characters during the first half of the book which is fast paced and filled with page turning action. The characters are relatively well defined within the context of the book and are often believeable (in an unbelievable situation). I propelled myself through the first half of the book in two sittings.

The latter half of the book takes a different direction and a different pace with the focus on the experiment subjects rather than the other characters we have met. This was a little disappointing to me as I had invested in the exisiting, now missing, characters.

To summarise: It is a kooky novel that doesn't take itself too seriously and as a reader you're advised to take the same approach to your reading of it. Enoyable and recommended to all my crazy cat lady friends.

Note:
Troy is an emerging author and this is one of his first published novels. In some respects this is evident in this novel which sometimes feels a little rough around the edges and in need of an editors eye to iron out a few kinks. Troy is available to talk to via twitter and welcomes feedback from fans regarding his work. His open approach to receiving feedback leaves me confident that future novels will be worth seeking out.

I was very pleasantly suprised by this book. Without giving too much away I love how the book in parts is told by the "other than humans".
I would reccomend it to anyone that loves science fiction and cats.
Also love how the forests are so accurately described (as it is set in Minnesota and I grew up there).
Very much worth the time to read this book. Flew through it in less than 24 hours (and that was with a full day at work as well).

A tale of secret governmental testing, and of psychic cats. Sounds farcical, i know, but Troy Blackford delivers this tale in his own original style, drawing you in, telling the story from multiple viewpoints, including the cats'!
A delightful read, filled with humour, lots of horror, and of course, the cats!

From the first page to the last, you won't want to put it down.

The characterisation of the cats is likely spot on & combined with a sci-fi, conspiracy & sibling rivalry plot that is unique.

I'd recommend to all lovers of fiction & not just a particular 'genre'.

This was my first exploration into the fictional writings of author Troy Blackford! Wow, I could not put the book down! A story of science fiction with a subtle element of truth running through it. Man with his "experiments" on animals and the consequences. There are twists and turns, suspense, horror, blood and death. Good fighting evil and the hero of the story is a cat! If you love science fiction and a gripping tale, this one is definitely for you. I highly recommend it! look forward to choosing another book by Troy!
