One man has somehow become a leader to bring people across the early United States to California. The journey is treacherous, but there's a man who claims he has found a route that will get them there faster. As the winter approaches, and the snow comes, something evil follows them within the forest. Georgie, the young son of the man leading the group, hears the voices. They tell him to feed. To feed upon those around him.


Then the snows come, and they are forced to build shelters and try to ride it out. However, the demons within the forest will not stop. Soon, the children begin to change. As Garland and some other men set out to find rescue, those left behind discover that there is a nightmare beyond the cold. There is something horrific beyond just the snows that bury them. There is something beyond the hunger.


The children are no longer human. They have long sharp teeth. They can communicate to each other without speaking. And they hunger. Oh, they hunger and when their teeth bite, nothing can stop them.


A terrifying novel with one of the scariest opening scenes I have ever written, this story was inspired by the real life tale of the Donner Party, but adds a strong supernatural bent to it. A story of one man, trying to will success to his family, but who may have just led them into the most terrifying nightmare any human has ever faced before.
