Synopsis

College senior Leigh Swanson knew her friends’ vacation to Montreal would become a drug-and-booze-filled road trip. Yet despite her best judgment, she gave into her roommate’s pleas and hopped aboard the Canada-bound van.

It will soon prove to be the biggest mistake of her life.

On the road, Leigh and her friends meet Sam Tucker, a mysterious hitchhiker who is willing to exchange directions for a ride. Sam takes the gang on a shortcut—a detour through a dark Vermont forest. A deadly detour.

Among the many horrors that await Leigh and her friends is a fatal fungal disease, a grisly infection that has already claimed a number of victims. There is a cure—but Leigh is about to discover that sometimes, the only thing worse than sickness is:

The Remedy

***Melanie -#NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
This is the first book I have read by new to me author Asher Ellis and the best way I can think of to describe it is – You know those SyFY original movies that air? The ones that you already know what the basic premis is going to be, you have seen it before, but you watch anyway? This is sort of like this but in book form.

The horror/slasher tale portrayed is nothing really new, more of a rehash of several other stories (think Texas Chainsaw Massacre) but it is done well enough that it makes for a fairly good read.

I think if you know going into it what to expect and you enjoy that sort of thing (which for the most part I do) this is definitely worth picking up. This author I feel certainly has some wordcrafting skills and I think it will be interesting to see what would happen if they push themselves out of what seems like a rather comfortable zone for them.

Over all a 3 1/2 stars out of 4 (rounded up as per my protocol) and a definite interest in seeing what this author could do with some slightly more original matrial V””V
