    This is a solid little horror novel that feels like an expanded short story There are no side plots or other distractions here, just a Point A to Point B story about a family that takes a shortcut in the Sierra Nevada mountains that leads them into the small town of Adrienne, a place where evil gathers literally, all the bad people of the world end up here after they die.As part of the contingent of normals that blunder into Adrienne, Phil and Wendy Benson are forced to work for the dark ones to earn a chance for a once a year lottery that sees a bunch of people, both good and bad, released back into the world via magic portal Adrienne is host to demons, serial killers, Joseph Goebbels Call me Joseph and the teenage Columbine killers who are never mentioned by name and are weirdly depicted as cartoonish villains.There is some nice tension as the family struggles to both follow the rules and sometimes defy them, knowing the dire consequences of being caught, but the story is almost too efficient as it speeds along to the endgame, the various pieces all falling in place so quickly there is little time to allow events to sink in The reader learns about Adrienne but it only ever feels like the surface is examined.Phil, the protagonist of the story, comes across as a decent but ultimately bland kind of everyman Bo, his brother on the other side, leads a search to find him and his family, and at one point he and his girlfriend come to believe it s essential to get the local sheriff on board to make their kooky plan to free the normals of Adrienne work, though it s never stated exactly why he s needed The sheriff is nice enough as a character, but he becomes increasingly non essential as the story progresses, to the point where I almost felt his alleged need was a deliberate red herring.The conclusion will likely leave a lot of readers with a What happened next feeling but that s not necessarily a bad thing.Overall, Cold on the Mountain has a comfortable old school horror feel to it The journey is brisk perhaps too much so but the action certainly keeps rolling along.

    Very good Best horror slash supernatural book I ve read in ages This story flowed really well and the writing very good I probably should have given it four stars but i didn t get a real feeling of horror anywhere so dropped one star for that Still a good read and i would certainly read of this author s work.

    A family spring break goes terribly wrong when a shortcut takes them to a town in a different dimension The characters were well developed and it was a good story about the importance of closeness as a family It was an enjoyable read, just didn t knock my socks off.

    Cold on the Mountain was a fun and freaky read The premise is one that I think many readers will find immediately appealing a shortcut through the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the border between Nevada and California is actually a portal to a very dark town called Adrienne Why the darkness The town is where serial killers and other famous murderers go when they die and where they wait for their lottery number to be called in order to be re born and provide darkness to the world in order to balance the light.Many poor, unfortunate travelers are accidentally caught in the portal during the periods it opens to release dark energy and to restore normals who had previously gone missing These normals have been kept in indentured servitude to the dark forces They are there to provide labor and the occasional necessary sacrifice to denizens of Adrienne.This story centers on a family of four Phil, his wife Wendy and their two daughters Cammie and Carrie As they are caught in the portal, they must face the dangers inherent in living with people like John Wayne Gacy who runs the local hotel and Joseph Goebbels, the town s current mayor Along the way they meet Albert De Salvo a.k.a the Boston Strangler who happens to be the landlord of another normal, Denny Wren, a San Francisco 49er also caught and who had been helping others acclimate during his two decade stay in Adrienne An interesting cast of characters populating Adrienne provide an portrait of the town and there is some wonderful black and gallows humor The people that have gone missing have not disappeared without notice however There are many family members on the outside of the portal seeking resolution to the loss and hopefully recovery of the missing This group is led by Bo, Phil s brother and Bo s wife Kelli They are joined by Miriam who escaped from the portal and who had come to understand how it worked and had developed a technique to access it and the sheriff, of a skeptic of Miriam s but willing to try anything to solve the large number of missing persons cases in what essentially amounts to the mirror town located outside of the portal, Bishop All manner of events transpire to those on both sides of the portal The grand finale takes place during the yearly opening of the portal where the lottery is drawn for both dark energies to be reborn and normals to re enter Bishop This is a thoroughly entertaining story I was loath to put it down I almost managed to read it in one sitting I look forward to stories by this author A short book, but worthy of four stars
