One criticism, which I'm sure the writer is now aware of, was the number of typos. Any writer worth their salt will surely learn from this and come back swinging. I have no doubt Lee Mountford is such a writer and his next book will knock our socks off.
If you have a weak stomach do not read, it's very gory and at times a lump formed in my throat as it made me feel sick.
The writing was probably some of the best writing I've seen in a while, definitely will buy more from this author.

I feel now the same enthousiam I experienced after reading Master of the forest by Artyom Dereschuk.
At the beginning the scenery and events reminded me of the typical horror movie from the 70's and 80's, with the old good cabin in the woods where our heroes find indescribable suffering and horror.
But as the story evolved, the details and descriptions and the deeds of the Webbs family were really beyond any prediction.
I loved it. The brutality of it, the constant tension, the unexpected turns.
And amidst this all, it was amazing to see Ashley turning from a fearful and shy girl into a furious being fighting for her life.
Maybe some humans are more apt than others to survival, maybe their instincts work better, maybe they have an inner strenght they definetely do not know they have, until some catastrophe forces them to look inside them, and see it.
Beautifully written, I really enjoyed the prose.
Some typos as in other books from this Amazon-published series. It will get better I am sure.
Straight into my list of favourites.
". . . it felt like they had crossed over into something . . . a different kind of place . . . "
We begin with a group of four: Ashley, her new boyfriend, Tim, best friend, Kim, and boyfriend, Craig. What starts out as a "vacation" to get to know each other better, very quickly changes pace when they come across something . . . unexpected . . . in the woods, that changes everything. I have to say that while this novel did have some key differences from others of its kind (especially towards the end), for the main part, it starts with the usual formulaic sequences. Considering that there really isn't much to change one's view of the events that are anticipated to come, I would have liked to have seen some really stand-out characters to bring the story alive in a different manner. Unfortunately, I never connected to any of them, and found their personalities to be very predictable and cliched overall.
". . . Ashley wasn't sure what the difference was between a forest and just woods, but it seemed an inadequate description for the mass of trees that sprouted from the hilltop . . ."
There were some nice descriptions here, and a slightly different angle to the end, but honestly not enough to make more of an average impression upon me. If you're looking for a book that delivers exactly what the title states, this does that. I just didn't feel it had enough of a "lasting" effect for my personal tastes.
Still, a solid story for those looking for precisely that.
I do appreciate how quickly the author gets to the action. In a lot of cannibal tales, there's usually a bunch of meandering and pointless arguments that kind of make me wish the baddies would hurry up and eat some of these characters already. Not so much here. However, the source of the cannibal clan's cannibalism was a little too far-fetched for me, and the idea of cannibalism basically giving them superpowers due to the source of their hunger was a little laughable (to me, at least. There were a few scenes that I'm sure were meant to be scary or creepy, but the mental image just kind of, well, gave me a bit of a hoot).
It's worth a read if you need to fill an afternoon, but this doesn't look like one I'll be re-reading anytime soon.
It is a very quick read. I finished the whole book in one evening. There is a lot of action and at least a couple pretty gory scenes. There is also a bit of a Lovecraftian angle that elevates the book a bit above some others in the genre, but could have been pushed more or explained better. On the negative side, none of the characters are particularly likable or sympathetic so it's hard to care about what happens to any of them. It was also rather predictable for the most part. So I doubt I'll read anything more by this author.
This is my second Lee Mountford book and both were very good. Highly recommend this one!
I hadn’t heard of Lee Mountford when Horror in the Woods popped up for 99¢ on BookBub in March, but I love discovering new authors. Horror in the Woods sounded like something I would enjoy, and at 99¢, I was willing to take a chance.
The book began with four young hikers taking a weekend to get to know each other a little better. Someone tells a scary story about an urban legend. Someone gets freaked out a little. They stumble onto something they don’t expect, and it is quite scary.
There are some twists here and tons of gore, and then we go on with the ever predictable scenario where someone falls down...
Kind of sounds like most your typical horror stories, right?
A little further in, the story really twists and turns. This turned out to be a great book that held my attention all the way through. SO many plot twists! One thing actually made me gasp aloud because I really wasn’t expecting THAT!
There’s a lot of nasty wow-factor, a lot of blood, guts, and gore-filled pages, and some things that would probably make most people puke. I’m mostly immune to being grossed out by this sort of stuff, but there are some things that even made my stomach tickle.
This was Lee Mountford’s first novel. I’ll definitely be reading more of his work.
I think every fan of horror should read Horror in the Woods.

Even when this story is full of blood, gore and violence, and some of the scenes are beyond disturbing it all works perfectly well in this novel. This fact is complemented by the interactions between the characters and their reactions to what is happening around them. I love the fact that they feel organic with their personalities and the situations they are exposed to.
This novel is not for the faint of heart, and I am eager to suffer through this talented author’s next nightmare!
