Review of Michael McBride's Snowblind II: The Killing Grounds

— feeling amazing
Snowblind II: The Killing Grounds - Michael McBride

Snowblind II: The Killing Grounds is the long-awaited (by me) sequel to DarkFuse’s 2012 Book of the Year, Snowblind.

 

As the second storm in a row passes through Wolf Creek Pass, philandering Len Badgett and his current fling are heading back to civilization after their cozy (ski-less) skiing trip in the mountains, when Len hits what appears to be a man standing in the middle of the snow-covered road…

 

Seven years ago John Avery’s girlfriend and four of her friends vanished without a trace during a ski trip in Colorado’s untamed Rocky Mountains. Although Avery has been searching for her since then, it isn’t until his video camera is unearthed that the Sheriff’s office agrees to take another look. With Avery in tow, Archuleta County’s Sheriff Wayne Dayton (the same Sheriff Dayton from Snowblind) attempts to track down the locations seen in the videotape and perhaps squeeze some more information (a confession?) out of Avery.

 

“THEY COME AT NIGHT”

 

When something starts attacking and killing their little search party, it quickly becomes apparent that whatever is hunting them is a lot larger and smarter than they ever could have imagined. As the storm rages on their chance of finding out what happened to Avery’s girlfriend diminishes as rapidly as their chance of survival.

 

Snowblind was excellent. In my opinion, SB2 is better! And for a limited time you can still pre-order a signed/limited hardcover edition from DarkFuse. I have already secured mine. Although this book can stand on its own, I highly recommend reading Snowblind so that you can get the full awesomeness of Michael McBride’s perfect little winter collection.
