(A ROAMER WESTERN)
Pub. Date: November 2021
Roamer’s long-planned winter snowshoe trek to the high, lonesome peaks of the Bitterroots takes a hard turn when the big loner of a woodsman finds his mentor, cantankerous mountain man Maple Jack, savaged, terrorized, and raving about the Alooknok, blood-eyed demons who absconded with his cold-weather mate, Winter Woman, a no-nonsense healer and midwife. It’s up to Roamer to rescue her.
He takes to the trail in the wake of a blizzard, battling winter-starved timber wolves and the unforgiving elements. Tracking him, the addled Maple Jack falls prey to a trio of greasy wolfers. Then the very demons Roamer seeks find him—and force him deep into the belly of the beast, a foreboding, grim place in the raw mountains where sunlight never shines.
A brutal battle among friends, enemies, and Alooknok will seal their fates and haunt the few survivors . . . forever.
