A group of people on an archaeological dig find themselves in the midst of a terrifying legend in the horror novel, The Accursed Huntsman by Douglass Hoover. When Jack and his best friend, Sam, graduated from college, they celebrated by going on a hunt in the mountains of Montana. Unfortunately, they lost their bearings, Jack lost part of one of his legs, and Sam lost his life. Blaming himself for Sam's untimely death, Jack retreats from the world and becomes a hunting guide. Bill, an eccentric millionaire, offers him a guide's position on an archaeological expedition in Nova Scotia. Jack only accepts the job so he can help with Sam's sister's medical bills. When he meets Bill in person and learns what the team is searching for, Jack wonders why his presence is necessary on a dig. Lost in the myths and mists of time, the artifact they are hunting for probably doesn't even exist. However, when they actually discover something, sinister ancient creatures are awakened, and they want retribution. Can Jack help his colleagues escape the evil entities stalking them? Or will they each meet their fate in the forests of Nova Scotia?
The Accursed Huntsman by Douglass Hoover is a spell-binding and suspenseful horror novel. Cleverly written, the story is imbued with Native American and Celtic myths, legends, and terrifying creatures that are a creative mixture of folklore and fantasy. Reminiscent of campfire stories, urban myths, and a Stephen King horror story, this chilling tale is the stuff from which nightmares stem. The dynamic plot and spine-chilling storyline kept me on the edge of my seat until the story reached its harrowing conclusion. This hard-to-put-down book will not fail to entertain everyone who enjoys suspenseful horror-filled thrillers.
