Publisher Description

WINNER OF THE JAMES HERBERT AWARD FOR HORROR WRITING

The Troop scared the hell out of me, and I couldn’t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best.” —Stephen King

Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip—a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite—shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry—Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. A horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival with no escape from the elements, the infected…or one another.

Part Lord of the Flies, part 28 Days Later—and all-consuming—this tightly written, edge-of-your-seat thriller takes you deep into the heart of darkness, where fear feeds on sanity…and terror hungers for more.

Great read

Good page-turner with likeable main protagonists. Could do without the profanity though. Too much and unnecessary.

So good

Bit of a slow burn at first but truly got better every single chapter. Lots of great nods to It, Lord of the Flies, and other classics. Solid 4.5 stars! My only qualm is it really just take about 100-120 pages to pick up the pace. But the book does pick up speed. Great read!

True Horror! Love it!

Loved this book! One of the most disturbing books I have ever read, just absolutely made you feel weird... I couldn't put it down! If you enjoy horror, this is an absolute must! Highly recommend!
