Freeze by Daniel Pyle
Warren and their dog, Bub, get inside as quickly as they can when they hear her screams. Warren cleans her up the best he can but fears she may have swallowed some glass and wants to take her to the hospital. But the truck engine is iced over so they decide that they'll see how she does overnight and decide what to do the next morning.
Tess wakes up in the middle of the night coughing up a lot of blood. Scared, Warren bundles up and decides to hike to their nearest neighbor, three miles away, for help. But while he is gone, monsters made from ice invade the house. Tess and the dog battle for their lives.
Warren is attacked by the ice creatures on his hike, but is saved by his neighbors, but after he takes a thorough beating. But on the snowmobile with the neighbors, they are attacked again. Warren just wants to get back to his wife to ensure her safety, but no one can survive in the storm, especially with killing ice creatures after them. Or can they?
Freeze is a chilling tale that will remain with you long after the last page is turned. I could easily see this made into a movie - the action and the tense situations are treated with just the right amount of drama and emotional appeal. Fans of horrific suspense will savor Freeze! I can't wait to read more from this talented author.
