In Winter Prey...Simmons takes some of the familiar elements of horror stories and turns them on their head, making the reader look at familiar situations in a completely new light. The overall result is a novel feels both familiar and fresh at the same time and that is one heck of an exciting read. I can’t wait for the sequel!
