The Lodge


Ever wondered what it would be like if hunted animals were able to fight back?

The Lodge unveils the mystery of a hunting lodge in the remote hills of the Scottish Highlands during the Christmas holidays. After the report of an accidental death at the lodge, Andrew, a young constable from the nearest town, drives up through a growing blizzard.

Snowbound, Andrew and the guests take cover at the lodge as the terrifying ordeal unfolds. These animals have souls. Souls that won’t rest until they’ve had revenge...

But will the hunters become the hunted?

Whoa. This book has it all. Creative horror. Perfect length - grabs you, keeps you, freaks you out, the epilogue - Firelight Inncin the Colorado Rockies -- chills. Done.
Now I'm looking around my house for what can get me.
A hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands has recently opened and is hosting a classic Scottish Highland Christmas for their guests. Alan dies first- choking on a quail bone. But he hadn't eaten his quail.
Andrew recently graduated from police training and requests an assignment in the Highlands. He receives the call as an epic snow storm is about to start. Andrew, the guests and lodge owners are all stuck until the weather clears.
The animals start getting restless. And by animals - I mean the taxidermy animals, the kill trophies decorating the lodge.
I had with Elena, the young woman who assisted the owners. Yeah.
Great story. Great suspense and horror.

What a fun book. (Its purpose might not have been for me to have a good time with it, but the animals getting back their own was a treat.)

Constable Andrew, fresh out of the academy just seven months earlier, requests an isolated post in the Scottish Highlands. He is not at all sure why; he hates the cold and snow. It is close to Christmas when he gets a call out to a lodge of a death. He drives to the lodge in the middle of a blinding snowstorm.

One of the hunters has died after choking on a quail bone. But he never touched his quail. What is going on? More strange things begin to happen. How will this whole situation turn out?

The book is fairly well written and the plotting is very good. I liked Andrew, in spite of how things turned out. I liked Elena, but was disturbed at what happened to her. The end of the book was simply delicious.

I want to thank NetGalley and Troubador Publishing Ltd. for forwarding to me a copy of this fun book to me to read, enjoy and review.

All I can say is wow! First of all this book appealed to me because I love Scotland so I naturally gravitate to books that are set there. Horror novels can be a little hit or miss. Sometimes they are just a little too extra. But The Lodge hit all the right notes. Gruesome death, a little humor, excellent setting, and an unusual antagonist. The twists toward the end were amazing. I feel like I can't say enough good things about this novel.
