The Dead Path by Stephen M. Irwin
This is Stephen M. Irwin’s debut novel, which I thought was awesome. He has penned a scary thriller packed full of magic that will leave a chill down your spine. The characters are superbly written and the protagonist is intriguing. The story is one of tragedy, Nicholas Close wife dies in very bizarre accident, Nicholas begins to have visions and has always been somewhat psychic. Nicholas arrives back in his hometown where his visions begin to escalate. The abduction and murder of one of his childhood friends took place in the forest and now that same forest is beginning to claim new victims. Within the pages you will read of large spiders, the forest, mutilated animals and symbols of the ruins. The author draws you in and keeps you glued to the pages, you may also experience visions as the protagonist of this story does. Irwin has great detail and descriptions that brings this read to life; brilliantly written.
Highly recommend this one if you enjoy a scare that will send shivers down your spine. Look forward to reading more from this author. A must read.
