About the book

Six million acres of Adirondack forest separate Natalie and Doug Larson from civilization. For the newlyweds, an isolated back country honeymoon seems ideal — a chance to start their lives together. But as they begin to explore the dark interiors of their own hearts, soon it becomes clear they are not alone in the woods. A man watches them, wielding the forest like a weapon. He wants something from them more terrifying than death. And once they are near, he will do everything in his power to make sure they never walk out again.
