    1. Northwoods Deep by Joel Arnold is a morbidly delicious tale that will keep you hooked and wanting more from beginning to end. In an attempt to get away from her ex-husband who focuses his time on stalking her, Carol decides it would be good for her to get away and spend some time with her sister Brenda at the same time. The sisters quickly make plans to go on a camping trip where they will enjoy some fresh air and spend some time canoeing. Little did they know that their lives would be forever c [...]

    2. This is the kind of horror that I can get into. Lost in the woods, and old cabin, a crazy old guy.ah, it's going there.Carol and her sister Brenda are taking kind of a canoe trip to really get away from Carols ex-husband Mitch, who is stalking her. He ends up hearing about it, and follows.When this happens, her brother Jack starts to have dreams about his mother April (who he was responsible for killing in a car crash) telling him that his sisters were in trouble. So he and his father Allen, who [...]

    3. What I like about Joel Arnold is that he's not afraid to use his imagination. He's also not afraid to show us the most depraved, at their worst.But that's why I read horror, after all.Arnold's prose is descriptive, full, and rich. I felt as if I was there; seeing, tasting, and feeling the same things his characters do. He successfully creates vivid characters who all have distinct voices. There's a fairly large cast here, but I had no trouble keeping track of them.This book starts out as a stalk [...]

    4. Joel Arnold writes a wonderful story. The plot and characters are excellent. If you like to read horror books this one if for you. Keeps you on the edge of your seat turning the pages. Gives you that good creepy read that sends shiver down your spine and gives you nightmares.

    5. This book was very scary. The native american mythology and creepy old men were extremely frightening. I received this book for free through first reads.

    6. This book was a disappointment for me. I was definitely caught up when I started reading it, but as I continued reading I wasn't sure where the story was headed and by the end I felt like I had wasted my time. There were too many loose ends left untied. For one, wtf actually happened in this story?? Did Carol and Jack make it out of there? What happened to Michael? Did Brenda and Mitch actually die? Am I just to assume that Allen died too? Did I miss something? WTF ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN THIS BOOK [...]

    7. Cross-posted from Papyrus - Independent Author Reviews (papyruslebblake/2012/02/11/northwoods-deep-by-joel-arnold/)Something's in the woods - something ancient. Will you survive it?Northwoods Deep is what I would call a true horror. It has a dark power at its heart with which you become acquainted over the story by way of several nasty death scenes. It has a parallel human story that plays itself out until it becomes entwined with core horror story. It has various rather adult and - to be honest [...]

    8. In Joel Arnold’s latest novel, two sisters, the oldest, escaping an abusive ex-husband turned stalker, set-out on a canoe trip in Minnesota backcountry. Downstream, an indescribable evil as ancient as the ground it sleeps under, grows restless with hunger. A negative split is a term employed by distance runners to describe their race pace: start slow, finish fast. This is also the trajectory of most novels—the initial careful character sketches and diligent back-stories make way for faster a [...]

    9. I used to delight in scaring myself with tales of horror, I devoured Stephen King, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, James Herbert etc but at some point the real world became scary enough, without the disturbed imaginations of authors and I put the genre aside. When Joel Arnold approached me with a review request for Northwoods Deep however I was impressed by the excerpt and decided that perhaps it was time to rediscover my enjoyment of the genre. What I learnt is that you are never too old to need a n [...]

    10. A sister's love, a father's pain, a brother's guilt, a psycho ex husband, a creepy old hermit, and an Indian legend all come together in a story so descriptive and well written that I could almost smell the woods and hear the river. There are not many books that I assign the overused phrase of "page turner" and it may seem like I'm gearing up to call Northwoods Deep one of them. Well I'm not. Because for me, this book was more rare than a page turner. I did not devour it in one sitting. This boo [...]

    11. I loved this book from the first chapter. It had me completely hooked and I finished this in a weekend (which is fast for me)! The characters seemed so real, the author really made me care about them and what was happening--it felt like they were old friends. Some really scary stuff goes on and through the whole book I was so anxious to get to the next page and see what would happen. Very creepy, scary and unexpected things go on, just what I like in a book. I could not recommend this more! A re [...]

    12. I will start by saying that this book freaked me out. I mean really freaked me out. The ending was uber creepy, to say the least. The story line was okay, nothing new or daring, UNTIL THE END. After that, I was just numb. I know Joel Arnold definitely threw everyone for a loop with the ending, but it was just too creepy beyond words for me, and that is saying something, because horror is my favorite genre. Can I honestly say I don't know HOW I feel about this book?

    13. Great addition to the written collectionAll in all this book had some notable flare. Unique in its own fashion while carrying the traditional aspects and necessities of the true horror genre. With unexpected turns in the storyline and unique reference and twists the author has created a wonderful web of the macabre.

    14. More meh than I'd hoped. Pretty simplistic rendering of an abusive husband. Had the germ of a good plot but nothing really head and shoulders above a lot of other horror. Characters were more than flat but less than fully realized. Plus everyone belches way too much.

    15. This was a Stephen King-ish story with the tension and mystery. However, I was not impressed with the sexual parts and the gore. This is not my type of story. I don't mind the mystery and the tension, but the other stuff I could do without, thank you very much.

    16. Northwoods Deep is a dark and suspenseful thriller, but no literary masterpiece. The scenes set in the cavern below the cabin are reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft, and his writing seems an obvious influence.

    17. More like 3 1/2 stars. Had me hooked from the beginning and really enjoyed it up until the end. The ending was weird and a bit of a let down.

    18. Wow! This book was awesome! It was Very scary with lots of twists and turns. I am looking forward to reading some more from this author :)

    19. entertaining enough. a bit more back story to the old man, the dog and what was below the cabin could have made it much more interesting though
