In the Woods

Take a Walk on the REALLY dark side . . .



“Horror and mystery combine to delight readers with a work reminiscent of early King.” – The Mystery Zone

In The Woods

by Nancy Gideon


Hundreds of years ago their battle began . . .

In an age of knights and sorcery, a good king must raise a monster to protect his people from the demon unleashed by a dark-hearted enemy determined to claim his kingdom. But once called forth upon blood-drenched fields, can such evil ever be truly laid to rest?

To a present day community held hostage by fear, a serial killer will soon be the least of its worries after two off-duty firefighters enter a forest and find a grave.  What they dig up isn’t a victim or family pet. And when they race from the woods, they bring a timeless hell with them . . .

Based upon the original horror screenplay IN THE WOODS by Lynn Drzick, now an independent motion picture. Watch for the Blu-ray and Video-on-Demand in Spring, 2015.

“A fascinating story.” – Andy Garcia, actor

“5 Stars! I ate this book up, tearing through it, rubbing my hands together in glee.Creatures, a serial killer, suspense, thrills, terror. I loved this bloody book and can’t wait for the movie!” – FUOnlyKnew

“Starts off almost as high fantasy (but as) the setting changes to present day, becomes a fast-paced edge of the seat thriller. The exiciting climax and bone chilling events make for a nail biting read. If you enjoy fast moving adventure, with fearsome and deadly evil together with relationship issue, you will certainly enjoy this story.” – Romance that’s “Out of This World’

“With that delicious cover and knowing there is a screenplay and motion picture, how could I say no? Add some spookiness, death and danger, a magical Hellhound and a serial killer, and I cannot resist. The suspense had me looking ahead, waiting for the worlds to collide. The story was predictable, but I loved it. The pacing kept my attention and I was anticipating what would come next. 4-Stars” – Fundinmental

“I’m a fan of good writing in any genre, including horror done right. Anytime a book can make me question reality, fear shadows, and be afraid to turn off the lights, it is horror done right.  But it’s the author’s expert us of what I call the human element and a soft kiss of romance tjat upped the stakes and took it to the next level. Fans of horror, thrillers, and suspense will love this book. A Must Read! 4.5!”  – Cross My Heart Writings & Reviews
