An ancient wooden barrier buried deep in the granite cliffs of Nova Scotia’s rural coastline.
A long abandoned Victorian mansion sighing in the salty ocean breeze.
A patchwork team of nobodies ready to breathe new life into humanity’s most ancient mystery.
Haunted by the hunting accident that took both his leg and the life of his best friend, wilderness guide Jack Steward exists on the wooded fringes of society. When an infamously foolhardy millionaire offers Jack the means to reconcile his past wrongs in exchange for participating in a remote archaeological dig along the coast of Nova Scotia, Jack straps on his worn prosthetic and ventures forth into a world of mystery, deceit, and horror. Little does Jack know that the mismatched gang of killers, junkies, has-beens, and frauds he is about to join will uncover an artifact that will shake the very foundation of history, and maybe even grant him the ability to defeat the demons of his past. However, the expedition also unearths a horrific truth – the artifact wasn’t the only thing hiding deep under the Nova Scotian cliffs...
Praise for The Accursed Huntsman
"You can feel the skies darkening as you read, swelling with moisture and violence, ready to unleash on those foolish enough to be caught in the open. I rate this book a sturdy four spades and I highly recommend that you pick this up and let it consume you this fall."
- Caleb Taylor, OAF Nation
“Reminiscent of campfire stories, urban myths, and a Stephen King horror story, this chilling tale is the stuff from which nightmares stem. The dynamic plot and spine-chilling storyline kept me on the edge of my seat until the story reached its harrowing conclusion.”

“A rip-roaring adventure through the bloodstained underbrush of the human psyche. I simply couldn’t put it down.”
– Joseph Donnelly
Praise for The Homestead
Centered deep in the Alaskan bush, the Homestead offers a primal refuge for young men and women disenchanted by the modern era. Only accessible via helicopter or a series of rugged, treacherous trails, this Thoreauvian utopia stands as a testament to humanity’s ability to thrive in its natural state.
But when a bear attack kicks off an increasingly violent chain of events, the secrets of the Homestead’s founder, Augustin Stark, risk being brought into the light. As he grapples to keep the family he’s created together, a malevolent outside force joins the fray. One that threatens to destroy not only the community, but the people themselves.

"[I]t’s one that refuses to be disregarded or easily forgotten, particularly given its jaw-dropping ending. A passionate, sometimes-brutal tale of violence begetting violence."
"This is a thriller with a capital T. Intrigue, action, adventure and mystery all combine to make this an unforgettable novel in every respect. Superbly written with a breath-taking pace, the story sprints into action from the very beginning. The characters are well crafted and diverse, and the hints of Stark's hidden past and the intertwined lives of the rest of the group combine to provide not just an exciting read but a visual experience, so good is the writing... This is an author to watch."
-Jane Finch for Readers' Favorite
“The story itself comes right off the headlines of current events news and recent past events. Hoover pulls no punches—there is blood, language, and violence comparable to reality, and that is a big part of what makes this book so damned good… If you appreciate verisimilitude in what you read or watch on film… this is a book for you. I loved it.”
-Lex Allen, Author
“A harrowing tale of tribal loyalty and corporate greed that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat until the end… An absolute must read for Veterans.”
-Joe Donnelly, USMC
