    2½ stars Wolfhunter River is my least favourite book in this series so far It's obvious why too I still enjoy the author's style I still enjoy the exploration of internet stalking and the court of public opinion but this book is so obviously a bridging the gap bookIf you've read Killman Creek then you know the significance of that book's conclusion and how it essentially wrapped up the central story line of the first two books With strong characters and a good fanbase of course the author doesn't want to stop there But now we need a new story to grow out of that We need a reason for Gwen Proctor badass mother of two to go from being on the run to solving her own crimes Which was always the natural direction for this series to go inIn order to do that we have this book This book is unfortunately the filler between two plot points It clings unnecessarily to old plot lines that should have been put to rest It introduces some new mysteries that serve only to get Gwen where she needs to be Virtually nothing happens for the first hundred pages approx 13 of the book and little progression is made even in the second hundred pages It isn't until the last third of the book that the story gets itself in gear None of this is helped by the fact that I don't find Sam very interesting so his subplot here left me unmovedIt's not bad as such it's just not as strong as the previous books I suspect goodness is to follow in the fourth book now that we've got where we need to be I still ended up uite enjoying parts of this one because of the aforementioned exploration of internet stalking and the court of public opinion These feature heavily in the series and the author looks at how terrifying it is that we no longer need a court trial and prison The court of public opinion can punish someone and ruin their life just as effectively truth be damned It also explores some interesting and socially relevant concepts like privacy in the Internet age Sharing of information plays a huge part in the plot as well as other techie aspects like manipulating imagesvideo These conversations keep the slower parts intriguingA weak point in the series but I still have high hopes for the next installment Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

    As we leave Stillhouse Lake I feel a tiny guilty bit of relief Like I'm running away from my problems dumping them and escaping into the unknown the way I had before But it's false that feeling Escaping was always temporary Problems always caught up to me But I remind myself I'm not doing this for myself Not this timeHonestly if you're not reading Rachel Caine's Stillhouse Lake series then what are you doing with your life? I'll admit I was skeptical when I saw the first book in the series praised so thoroughly that I assumed it had been hyped to high heavens so I didn't start the series until after the first two novels had been published I finally gave into the pressure after seeing so many glowing reviews from trusted friends and boy am I glad that I did There's a uiet power to these books and although the reader is dropped in after the serial killer has been unveiled I think the fact that the tension doesn't lie in the whodunnit is precisely what makes these books unable to be ignored The multiple POVs the constant sense of those hunting down Gwen Proctor's family closing in and the complex weaving of multiple storylines are all reasons that I keep coming back to this seriesCan this book be read as a standalone? I mean I think you could read it and follow along well enough as the author does a fabulous job of recapping events from the prior two novels but you'd be doing yourself a disservice at best The fact that there is so much backstory provided for these characters in the previous stories is only part of the reason; Caine has done such a fabulous job of reuiring an investment in her characters that my jaw was literally on the floor during some of the plot twists and reveals in Wolfhunter River The vein of intimacy I now feel with these characters makes some of the conflicts only that much painful; the emotion runs deep here folks much deep than in its preuels I really don't want to get into plot specifics Honestly why do I keep saying this in reviews? Is it trademarked yet? but I have to admit that this one had hustle and bustle going on that the reader needs to keep straight I loved this because it provided me with an enjoyable challenge and to see how certain things tied together by the end and how some things didn't was extremely satisfying Gwen's personal conclusion was wonderful as well; I feel the author could choose to leave this as the final book but could just as easily see her continuing on with a new set of ideas Highly recommended And please do yourself the favor of starting from the beginning If you're a fan of audiobooks these are EXCELLENT to listen to as well Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy

    Gwen Proctor is a magnet for evil and a force to be reckoned with in Rachel Caine's Wolfhunter River Stillhouse Lake #3 Melvin Royal might be dead but his notoriety as a serial killer continues to haunt Gwen and their children All she wants is to try to provide her children with some sense of normalcy but a group of internet vigilantes who believe she is as evil as her ex husband are seeking their own brand of justice and simply won't allow it Seen as a fighter and a survivor to some there are people who have begun to seek Gwen out for help facing their own demons When Gwen receives a series of desperate calls hailing from Wolfhunter River from a woman and then her daughter it's not something she can simply ignore Wolfhunter River proves to be a secluded eerie town with rules all their own It's the kind of town where the inhabitants are not keen on outsiders and they have no problems expressing their hostility Gwen and her family find themselves putting their lives at risk to help the daughter of the deceased woman who initially called her Soon Gwen finds herself fighting against a town of pure evil Can they make it out of Wolfhunter River alive?I appreciated the directional leap this book has taken as we move beyond the initial Gwen versus Melvin storyline Gwen and Sam's relationship is tested once again in this book with the truth being bared once and for all I look forward to seeing where they go from this point Gwen is an intelligent strong courageous and determined character I enjoy watching her battle evil in all its forms via this series and look forward to continuing to do so with future books Thank you Rachel Caine Thomas Mercer and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an arc of this book I'm already looking forward to #4

    35 stars A mysterious phone call brings Gwen Proctor to Wolfhunter River a small Tennessee town filled with dark secrets and fcked up creepy people This is the third installment in the Stillhouse Lake series and I would recommend reading this series in order This is a dark gritty and suspenseful read My favorite element of this book was trying to figure out what in the world was going on in Wolfhunter River This part of the book kept me on my toes as I never knew who or what was coming There are some scenes filled with graphic violence and a lot of sickos; part of me wishes I could erase what I read and get some of these scenes out of my head This also my least favorite book in the series With that being said I still enjoyed it but I found that it was missing some of the tension that fueled the earlier books in the series Even though there is a lot of crazy sht going on this book moved at a bit of a slower pace than the other books in the series I think I am also getting a little sick of Gwen being chased by trolls who believe her to have assisted in her husband’s crimes With that being said I still have some uestions concerning some elements of her relationship with Melvin My main gripe with this book involves Gwen’s decision to take her children to Wolfhunter a town she knew something wasn’t right with For a woman who is so hell bent on protecting her children why would she bring them to Wolfhunter River? I had trouble looking past this decision In spite of the issues I had I still love this series and these characters This book works to transition to a new narrative thread that will be used to frame future storylines I look forward to seeing what kind of craziness comes next I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Thomas Mercer in exchange for an honest review

    Four disturbing gory edgy but really well deserved starsGwen Proctor will always be one of my favorite heroines transforms herself from naive shy woman into a lion survivor fighter a real protector does whatever takes to keep her children safe Her serial killer husband might be killed by her but there are still people out there for bloody vengeance including Marleen who is obsessed with her dedicated to avenge resistant to believe in Gwen’s innocence The threats from hillbillies and loyal followers of her husbandher children’s adaptation problems to their nightmarish lives and her unresolved problems with Sam suffocate her As soon as she got a cry for help phone call she finds herself being dragged along Wolfhunter River to fight against a deadly cult Two different stories combined meticulously It’s still disturbing riveting and frightening But there has less action on this book if I compare it with previous two books and there are too many repeats about Melvin’s past The revelation about Sam was shocking and made me sad for his wounded relationship with Gwen But I think Rachel Caine wants to write series and she wanted to give a purpose a new profession to Gwen with the end the book So she wrote this one as preuel to begin with new series which will be a crime thriller As we can guess the cases take place different areas will be solved by Ms Proctor I don’t know if I want to continue reading books of the series Because I think it should have ended with Melvin’s dead Well as a summary I enjoyed this one But do I want ? Nope I pass

    Another wonderful thriller in the Stillhouse Lake series in this novel Gwen is still living in the shadow of her late serial killer husband and having a hard time keeping the haters from her family Then she receives a call from a women upstate claiming that something dodgy is going on in her town but doesn't let on what Soon after the woman's daughter calls Gwen back saying she has just found her mother's body and the police are coming to get her So just what is going on in Wolfhunter River?With an incarcerated fifteen year old girl three missing young women and a kidnapped child life is certainly interesting in Wolfhunter River a backward town where everyone knows or is related to everyone else and outsiders aren't tolerated let alone trusted Gwen finds her work cut out for her and during all this the threats to her family are escalatingWell I just couldn't put this book down reading it in a day We again feel Gwen's pain as she tries to protect her family against the odds finding it especially tough in Wolfhunter River where the locals close ranks against her The angst of her teenage daughter the growing strength of character of her young son and the confusion her lover Sam still feels are all well portrayed But gee how much can one woman go through in a lifetime? Gwen deserves a break and maybe just maybe she finds it in the endI recommend this book to all lovers of crime thrillersMy thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    My reviews can also be seen at StarsIf you plan on reading the first two books in the “Stillhouse Lake” series you might want to hold off on reading this reviewI will tell you that this is a series that I highly recommend I have been looking forward to reading this since finishing Killman Creek the previous book in the seriesThe book starts with the shocking kidnapping of a six year old girl I was pulled right inThe story then turns to Gwen Proctor Gwen is staring into the dark eye of a TV camera The camera reminds her of very bad things It reminds her of her ex husband serial killer Melvin Royal “I see my ex and his horrible smile I see blood” The newspapers are still reporting what happened months earlier “Shootout in murder house” The newspaper always mentions that Gwen was once arrested as Melvin Royal’s accomplice but they almost never remember to say that she was acuitted She has decided she wants to set the record straight She chose “The Howie Hamlin Show” because Howie appeared to have a good reputationUnfortunately the interview does NOT go as planned It's like an interrogation Then Howie asks Gwen if she knows about the documentaryWhat documentary?When he introduces his next guest things go from bad to worseAll Gwen wants is for her family to be happy and safe But the normal life she craves seems so far out of reach Then there’s Sam There’s so much they need to talk aboutWhen the landline rings one night Gwen is hesitant to pick it up Most of the calls she gets are people making threats and yelling abuse But she also gets calls from people asking for advice or help“Please I’m begging you Please answer me I don’t know where else I’m supposed to turn” Gwen listens as the woman leaves a message Just as the woman is about to hang up Gwen picks up The woman Marlene Crockett is from a small town called Wolfhunter She sounds terrified but she's vague when answering Gwen’s uestions When Marlene suddenly hangs up Gwen wonders if she was trying to lure her to WolfhunterGwen tries to put the call out of her mind But a few days later the phone rings again What Gwen hears shocks her Soon she's heading for Wolfhunter She wants to help“You can’t take on trouble in a strange town You don’t know the players or the people And you’ve got no stake in this thing”Will Gwen be able to help and keep herself and her family safe?I really enjoyed this book It has a great plot with a lot of excellent characters old and new uite a few of the characters from books one and two make an appearanceThe majority of the storyline is told from Gwen’s point of view but there are also a few chapters from other characters I thought that the multiple storylines were interesting Some very intense moments had me holding my breathI think the book could be read as a standalone However a lot happened in books one and two so readers might enjoy it if they read the entire seriesThis was another great chapter in the Stillhouse Lake series I can't wait to read I'd like to thank Thomas Mercer and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this novel All opinions are my own

    Imagine what it must be like to discover the man you married was a horrible serial killer and that he was torturing and killing women right underneath your nose For Gwen Proctor that nightmare was her reality But after fearing him for years and trying to keep her kids out of danger she has finally been able to pull their lives together into some semblance of normalcyBut peace of mind and security don't last long Her ex husband Melvin had acolytes all across the country people willing to do his bidding and inflict emotional torture on Gwen and her kids People make threats against them on a daily basis some of them bordering on true danger And even worse the families of Melvin's victims continue to believe that Gwen was a part of his crimes and are determined to make her pay even developing a documentary which they hope will finally expose what they believe to be her guilt—no matter who gets hurt in the crossfireOne day Gwen gets a call from Marlene a woman in a remote Tennessee town called Wolfhunter Marlene is among those strangers who call on Gwen asking for advice or assistance in overcoming challenges like she did Marlene is afraid of someone but isn't willing to divulge the reasons for her fears Marlene asks Gwen to come to Wolfhunter but she fears it's some sort of trap Yet when the next call from Wolfhunter comes in it's not from Marlene it's from her teenage daughter Vee Marlene is dead and the primary suspect is Vee herself even though Gwen knows it's not her daughter Marlene was afraid ofGwen makes the decision to help Vee out so she heads to Wolfhunter along with her boyfriend Sam and her children While she knows she may be stepping into something dangerous she has no idea of the viper's nest they'll encounter and the ripple effects that will be felt by Marlene's murder Vee's alleged guilt and the simple fact of Gwen's presence in Wolfhunter Small rundown towns are the perfect breeding ground for evil and as the danger intensifies so do the crises in her own life Wolfhunter River is Rachel Caine's third book in her Stillhouse Lake series after Stillhouse Lake and Killman Creek Gwen Proctor is an amazing character—flawed brave vulnerable fierce and utterly protective of her children I found the first two books in this series absolutely spectacular tautly plotted and full of action and suspense and they provided a disturbing view into the heart of evil and how it can spreadI found that this book took a little longer to build up steam and once it did there was so much going on and so many things were tangled together that the plot even got a little muddled It felt like in trying to build on the intensity of the first two books Caine thought she had to triple the suspense Fortunately there is still a lot of character development and we learn about Sam's life before he and Gwen metThis book might be of a standalone than the first two books were but I'd still recommend you start reading the series from the beginning Caine sure does love to keep you guessing about how the plot will unfold I'm not sure if she intends to keep writing about Gwen but I hope she does because she's definitely one of my favorite female characters of lateIf you're a fan of creepy well written suspenseful thrillers I'd encourage you to pick up this series starting with Stillhouse Lake You may find yourself wondering just how you'd react if faced with the same situations Gwen was and whether you'd be a total badass like she isNetGalley and Thomas Mercer provided me an advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks for making this availableThis book will be published April 23 2019 See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomCheck out my list of the best books I read in 2018 at You can follow me on Instagram at

    Pre releaseOMG A third book Mixed emotions here A part of me is excited to see what turn the series takes now but there is a bigger part of me that just wants Gwen to be left alone To lead an uneventful calm happy life She has had enough Poor soul And the children? They can’t possibly survive any psychological traumaEDIT 16052019 Review SPOILERS It was a bit underwhelming to be honest After the exceptionally well crafted plots of the first two books was expected from Wolfhunter River but the plot was too weak to generate the same levels of eerie surprises and bone chilling excitement as the first two However I would still rate it 3 stars as I got to be a part again of the journey of a few of my most favourite characters Though I would have personally preferred the series to end with the events of Killman Creek with the hope they lived happily ever after I really can't be any invested in the future books in the series as I am now mostly out of concern for the characters I have grown to love all these years Shout out to Rachel Caine for developing the character arcs so well that Gwen Sam and the children are as real as anyone around and I wish only the best for them This book does have its moments Though I saw it coming I still could not stop myself from breaking into tears when Sam finally confessed to his direct involvement in the umpteen threats and harassments the likes of Lost Angles and Sicko Patrol directed at Gwen and the children and how he repented for that and now was a changed man with nothing but love for them It reuires immense courage to be honest and speak out one's heart especially when the truth can reopen deep wounds I also loved seeing Connor mature into this strong kid after all that he had to go throughHope the series goes back to its chilling best in the next instalment

    4 Heart Stopping Stars For Gwen Proctor Lanny Connor and Sam there’s no such thing as Peace Certainly not in Stillhouse Lake and let’s face it not anywhere else either When a television show wants to interview Gwen about her story she finally relents after all she has to give in sometime right? When confronted by Miranda Tidewell the mother of one of the victims and the head of “The Lost Angels” who blames Gwen for the loss of her child Gwen knows it's going to be bad The only thing her family can do now is cut and run something she’s uite familiar with This time Gwen Lanny Connor and Sam know that trusting in each other is all they have Will it be enough?When Gwen gets a couple of separate phone calls from Wolfhunter River she feels that pull Wolfhunter River is a town in Tennessee well known for being shady The calls are from a woman and her daughter who sound desperate and who need help badly As if Gwen Sam Lanny and Connor aren’t in enough trouble already What can I say except that Rachel Caine has done it again She has written a pulse pounding novel that I tore through in a matter of hours I simply love The Stillhouse Lake series and “Wolfhunter River” is no exception These characters gut me I love how smart independent and able bodied Gwen is Lanny and Connor are both so capable and given what they’ve gone through so darn intuitive Admittedly there was something else about this book that grabbed me and felt like a knife to the heart did it cut me completely? Ack I’m not allowed to say Though this mysterysuspense wasn’t uite as good as either “Stillhouse Lake” or “Killman Creek” it was a worthy follow up for which I give it 4 Stars Thank you to NetGalley Thomas Mercer and Rachel Caine for an arc of this novel in exchange for an honest reviewPublished on NetGalley and Goodreads on 21819Excerpt to be published on Instagram
