Four hundred years ago a Scottish cargo ship fell prey to a Wendigo at an early settlement on the Hudson River. Now a team of archaeologists have uncovered the boat, and let loose the evil.

Soon Manhattan is hit by an ice storm like no other. Besides the wind and ice, there is something else moving in the storm. Blue, cold things, with razor sharp teeth.

This book wasn’t what I expected at all. Since Wendigos are from the north and because they are part of North American legend, I expected this story to take place in a small town or village. Wrong. It took place in Manhattan. I thought this would be about some mythical creature, (single), that terrorizes said town. Wrong. There’s loads of them and it’s still Manhattan. What’s right? The characters are fun and compelling,( if maybe slightly cliche), there’s humor, there’s scary creatures, there’s a mysterious journal, and some gory deaths.

In short, this was a super cool story to read. It starts off with a shot and it’s gone.
I recommend this for fans of horror fun. See if you can hang on for the ride that is Night of the Wendigo!

About William Meikle

I am a Scottish writer, now living in Canada, with over twenty novels published in the genre press and over 300 short story credits in thirteen countries. I have had books published with a variety of publishers including Dark Regions Press, DarkFuse and Dark Renaissance, and my work has appeared in a number of professional anthologies and magazines with recent sales to NATURE Futures, Penumbra and Buzzy Mag among others.

I live in Newfoundland with whales, bald eagles and icebergs for company and when I’m not writing I drink beer, play guitar and dream of fortune and glory.

I don’t know where the ideas come from. I’m just glad that they come. It’s been over twenty five years now. I think it’s enthusiasm that keeps me going. I just love adventure stories with guns, swords, monsters and folks in peril.

I’m just a big kid at heart.

And therein lies my secret. I haven’t grown up.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
