Publisher's Summary

Somewhere out in the woods an otherworldly creature born of fire and hate lurks. When the beast emerges, lusting for blood, all that stands between it and the nearby town is a grief-stricken farmer. Supernatural ferocity meets backwoods ingenuity in a horror fable of good versus evil.

    Story
    "Dog Gone I enjoyed this fable!"

    This story was more than I thought it was going to be. I ended up "reading" the complete 4 hr. tale in one setting instead of a easy car listen. Being an animal lover, I was a little upset with the end - but it is billed as a legend and all legends have to have something weird!

    I was gifted this book by the author, publisher or narrator via Audiobook Blast in return for an unbiased review.

    I really enjoyed this tale.

    "Edge of your seat enthralling story"

    Wonderfully written and narrated. Short but well developed and totally captivating. My 10 year old son heard about 20 minutes of it in the car downloaded it and is listening to it on his device. Will be eagerly seeking more by this author! I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Terrific!"

    "Legend of Kill Creek Woods" by Brett Williams is a man-against-monster novella, not my usual fare. The main character, an unnamed middle-aged man living in the woods of an unnamed location, attempts to destroy a large, murderous devil hound immune to his rifle bullets. The violent story contains death scenes involving innocent people, even children, so it is not for the squeamish. The high octane battles between the two combatants kept me fully engaged from start to finish. Highly recommended. Book given free in exchange for honest review.

    Story
    "reminiscent of campfire ghost stories"

    The Legend of Kill Creek Woods is the story about a simple man, one who we never learn his name, who breeds dogs. Has a family. Lives, one might say, a very content life. Until, that is, everything is torn apart. His wife and son are killed, then his best friend or possession, depending on how you look at it, his prized bitch.

    Left with the last litter of puppies. The man is obsessed with finding who or what killed his beloved family. Then one night the killer finds him. Thus begins a short cat and mouse game, each switching roles from time to time. Until only the victor remains.

    This was reminiscent of the ghost stories that my parents told me while sitting around the campfire when I was a kid. Them trying to scare the pants off of me so I would have a restless night sleeping alone in my tent. Jumping at every little sound I would hear.

    Quite an entertaining listen that ended in a way that I didn't think would happen, and in a way that I loved. Worth the lmost two hours of listening time to be creeped out for most of it.

    Joe Hempel did a decent job with this performance. Adding in a slight southern accent that made it seem even more real. At time I didn't agree with his pacing changes. He more than made up for this with the intensity of which he read. Bringing the terror that the man was going through to life. Hempel has a voice that one might not associate with the term narrator. As he sounds like a normal everyman. This only adds to the wonder that is created telling the authors folk lore.

    Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.

    "Spooky!"

    I don’t usually read many books from this genre, but I really enjoyed this one. The narration brought the story to life and held my interest throughout. The story was well thought out, complete and will keep you listening. I will be watching for this author in the future.

    Story
    "The best defense against a Demon Dog is a Ghost"

    Legend of Kill Creek Woods is a short but good tale of one mans fight against a demonic hell hound out to destroy his family. All he has left are his beloved terriers and he will need to enlist their help to stop the demon dog before it runs amok throughout the entire town.

    The narrator Joe Hemple is very good and I have listened to several of his previous works and have enjoyed his narration. Joe always does a very good job.

    *I received a review copy of this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Wow"

    When the farmer's family gets picked off one by one by a beast in the woods, he and his terrier face the beast and soon, the farmer must fight not only for his own life, but for the lives of everyone in the entire town. I loved this book, despite not knowing what I was in for. The story moved along at a great pace and I could relate to and sympathize with the characters.

    I want to talk about the performance of this book. Joe Hempel blew me away with his narration. Not only did he perform a believable southern accent, he read with an intensity I didn't know he possessed. I actually had to go back to my library to make sure Joe was the narrator. Hempel has been one of my favorite audiobook narrators for a while, but this performance shows how much he's grown and improved as a narrator over the years.

    Looking forward to more from this author and narrator.

    "Solid story and performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Legend of Kill Creek Woods to be better than the print version?

    I'd imagine so. The narrator's accent and talent lent a note of realism.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The unnamed farmer. His strughles and loss leave you relating to or at least rooting for him.


    What about Joe Hempel’s performance did you like?

    His accent fit the character well, not as much southern as rural, maybe.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A man who loses everything can still have vengeance. Or (on a liter note): BEWARE OF DOG!
