Dark Hollow - Brian Keene

The Great God Hylinus.

Not Pan, but still a great and powerful satyr.

A good old fashioned modern horror novel, with the unsuspecting blokes in one street of a rural Pennsylvania town suddenly having supernatural evil coming in and stealing their women.

Apparently this area has a homebrewed tradition of magic called 'powwow'.

One practitioner in the past called up something he shouldn't have, and now it is back.

The only people around to help are a dog that is scared of squirrels, and a non-believing detective. Not much to go on versus an evil forest and a giant satyr.

3.5 out of 5
