By Brian Hodge
A golden time – that’s what Chris Anderson, his brother Aaron, and their friends expected of that final summer. Freedom, and lazy, pleasure-filled days before the responsibilities of college and career. An idyll in the seclusion of their newfound hideaway on the shores of three small lakes.
But Tri-Lakes is no oasis. A millennium ago it became the focal point of a powerfully malevolent force, and the remnants of an ancient bloodfeud.
Hatred is its source.
Blood gives it power.
Only sacrifice can banish it.
PRAISE FOR OASIS:
“Hodge once again plays by the rules, but with a frightening catch ? His characters breathe, and his prose is chilling and crisp.” – West Coast Review Of Books
“Hodge writes well, he is adept at both atmosphere and action, and his sense of story is good. Like [Stephen] King, whom Oasis continually echoes (but doesn’t copy), he keeps the reader’s interest ? a major task for many horror writers today ? He’s made the jump from the small presses to the mainstream in a short time. Oasis is one reason why.” – Fangoria
“Fine degrees of nuance and shading ? Hodge’s knack is in invoking sympathy for his characters. He draws on a talented mix of humor and suspense to entertain. It makes for compelling style.” – Deathrealm
