"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

The Summary

Twin brothers Ty and Cory Bic are on the run. When they encounter a dying deer in the middle of a remote mountain road with fresh tire tracks swerving down into a ravine, they know they have to help. But when they reach the wrecked car the vehicle appears empty, with signs that the driver escaped.

Until they hear a sound coming from the trunk.

Ty and Cory are escaping demons of their own. But what they discover in the trunk puts them in the crosshairs of something darker and more sinister than their wildest nightmares.

Told through a gripping, lightning-fast narrative that alternates between present and past, this unputdownable survival thriller unravels the tangled circumstances that led Ty and Cory to the deer in the road and set them on a perilous course through the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.

My Review

I'm not typically a big mystery/thriller fan; I prefer my books a little bit more fantastical.  But there sometimes comes a book that peaks my interest, and I pick it up.  Deadfall by Stephen Wallenfels was one such book, and is going on my small thriller shelf after reading this tense survivalist rollercoaster.

At the heart of this story you find two brothers trying to survive and overcome obstacle after obstacle, who grew up within very abusive household, and now are on the cusp of possibly following in their father's footsteps.  Within this you also get a survival journey, as Cory and Ty, on the run from their own problems, stumble upon a kidnapping.  It's not as simple as saving the girl, as the murderer is now on their path.  The reader experiences the present danger which is intertwined with flashbacks on what Cory and Ty have endured, ultimately resulting in both situations having to do with each other.

Overall, the plot will make you continue reading the book, as you'll need to see the what/where/when of Cory and Ty's situation.  But without softer, empathetic Cory as the protagonist, and Ty, his volatile and protective brother, as the catalyst, the story wouldn't be as engrossing.  The plot and the characters really work well in this survivalist thriller, and this is one book I can definitely say I enjoyed!  Already out in the wild, pick up your own copy of Deadfall by Stephen Wallenfals today!
