Northwoods by Bill Schweigart

Ok....I admit it. I am completely addicted to this series (I hope it is a continuing series)! This book is a second installment to Bill Schweigart's first book "The Beast of Barcroft" with the same premise and the same main characters: a group of diverse individuals investigate cases that seem out of the norm eg cryptozoological creatures (think X Files). 
There is so much information and lore about mythological creatures and a lot of blood and gore. What makes the book a winner for me is the way the author slowly draws out the personality and pasts of the main characters. It makes a nice balance between learning about these brave characters who I am coming to care for, and also the main story which is blood curdling horror. I also enjoyed how the author managed to introduce us to a new main character who I am looking forward to getting to know in future books. I was offered to read this book for free from the publishers (thank you!) via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Highly recommended!
