When Mort Holcomb, a hateful loner that enjoys coloring outside the lines of the law, accidently awakens a primal beast, which has an insatiable taste for human flesh, Hell’s about to freeze over and a tight-knit community is going to come unwound.
An unexplainable snow storm hits, causing temperatures to nose-dive to twenty below zero, winds to rip through at fifty mph, and massive amounts of snow to be dumped on the area. Completely isolated from the rest of the world, locals missing, and body parts piling up, Sheriff Dale Sienkiewicz is ill prepared for what awaits him, buried beneath five-foot snow drifts. The storm continues to rage and gruesome bloodshed follows as good, god-fearing people begin to turn sadistically violent.
Now Dale, a man that has fought to stay out of his father’s shadow, must battle an unnatural monstrosity, which devours anything in its path, if he hopes to save his family and make it out of Torrance before the town’s completely swallowed—whole and alive.
“Blackest of Hates is not the book to read in a North woods cabin during a snow storm.
Don’t think about whatever is tickling your ankle. Just get in your car and get out while you can. But bring Blackest of Hates with you so you don’t miss the interesting plot twists as the body count rises. Terrence Scott keeps action moving as the suspense builds in this small town where an evil force has awakened. No living creature is safe from the many tentacles of its hungered search. PS: would someone remember to close the door?”
—Cynthia Kraack, Author of Minnesota Cold and the Ashwood trilogy
“Terrence Scott’s Blackest of Hates will leave ice in your veins.
You will not look at snow the same way or those you trust with the same confidence. Through the eyes of Sheriff Dale Sienkiewicz and the townspeople of Torrence, Scott puts the reader on the inside looking out as they fight for survival. Come to know the failings of men and women against an unnatural force. Who lives and who dies will keep you involved to the very last page. Introduce yourself to Terrance Scott and dive into his nether world of terror. I did. ”
—Pat Clemmons, Author of Blind Trails and Rosebud
“When Randall Sheppard and his family found the old house on Canterbury Circle they fell in love with it.
But little did they know there was more wrong with the old house than they thought.The little old lady that lives next door knows more than she is willing to tell. This the first book i've read by Terrence Scott, and he has really caught my interest, it is very well written. I hope to see a lot more from this great author ”
“Don’t go out in the woods!
After reading Terrence Scott’s Blackest of Hates I may never go out into the woods again. Any shadow that moves, any flicker in the corner of your eye could be the monster. Don’t let your literal mind calm you, your imagination is probably right! Just when I thought I had this book figured out, Terrence Scott brought it to another level. The action was intense but believable. I couldn’t stop turning the pages.”
