Trapped in a bar by the biggest snowstorm in over a century, Ben Clary will soon learn that sometimes humans are the worst monsters of all.
Ben Clary is an everyday working man who caps off an afternoon of holiday shopping with a drink at his favorite watering hole. Before long, he is intoxicated, and a brutal winter storm descends. Trapped by a howling storm seems bad enough, until Ben and his fellow bar patrons find out something terrible and deadly lurks in the blizzard outside, making things far, far worse.
One by one, unseen assailants pick them off until a local historian claims the attackers may be the remnants of a clan caught up in an ancient blood feud, said to have occurred at the site of the tavern. And, worse, they seem to eat human flesh.
Even still, Ben soon learns the cannibal clansmen are the least of his worries—the true monsters are way more terrifying…and much closer to home.
