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.
“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… An excellent and exciting read.”
“It’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.”
“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–
“High-quality, highly violent fiction… The Homestead is a book about survival, about love for your brothers, about sacrificing for the people you care about. But, it is also a cautionary tale of the vainglorious nature of violence… I rate this stirring piece of soul-searching a solid four spades and recommend that any of you looking to get lost while also finding something out about yourself scoop this thing up and give it a go.”
