The Elements by Jonas Saul

Book Description

Publication Date: December 11, 2011
In a remote cabin, during one of the worst snowstorms the area has ever seen, John Stevenson is trapped. He was supposed to leave days ago, but he has no gas for the snowmobile, a bad leg and now he is seeing things. People are watching him through his own window. There are no footprints in the fresh snow, but they are there.
John receives a call on his satellite phone that his wife and one of his daughters are in the hospital after a terrible accident on the highway. His other daughter is wandering in the woods without a jacket, lost after the car accident.
But John is trapped. The snow is too high, and the nearest road is twenty miles away.
As unknown visitors taunt him, he discovers the horror of what has become of his family and the lengths a man will go to in the face of terror.
Review –
The author had me in the cabin from page one and I read it in one sitting.  I couldn’t believe the suprise ending.  I loved it.   Give it a try.

Review –
I found this book to be better than your average freebie and that’s rare.  Though the story is unbelievable it is a pleasant read because the main character is a strong-willed woman and that in today’s literature is also a rarity. The only drawback is having to wait for the sequel.  If you like creepy Science Fiction you should give this a try.
