Summary

Heaster Wharton is dead, and his passing might mean an end to hostilities between the Manders and the Coys. If the the elderly patriarch showed the kindness and foresight to split his land cleanly between his feuding descendants, then a truce could be arranged. But his final request is a strange one, delivered across the country to the straggling remnants of his tribe.
Representatives from both families must visit a cave at the edge of his property in the hills of Kentucky. There, he promised, they would find his last will and testament. But there's more than paperwork waiting underground, as vindictive old Heaster was well aware.
In 1775, Daniel Boone and a band of axe-wielding frontiersmen struggled to clear a path through the Cumberland Gap into the heart of Bluegrass country, and they did not work unopposed. Hounded and harried by an astonishing monster, the axe-men overcame the beast by sheer numbers and steel. They threw its body into a nearby cave.It was not dead. And now, it is not alone. Crippled and outraged, for 100 years something terrible has huddled underground, dreaming of meat and revenge. But its newest callers are heavily armed, skeptical of their instructions, and predisposed to violence.With their guns and their savage instincts, Heaster's grandchildren will not make for easy pickings.

Unexpected pleasure

Despite my reservations I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Was a little far fetched but entertaining.

Horror Story with Daniel Boone

What did you like best about this story?

It was totally unexpected. And riveting. It was just a darn good horror story!

What about Marc Vietor and Eric Michael Summerer ’s performance did you like?

I thought both of them did an excellent job. I usually don't like books with more than one narrator, so I was skeptical, but it was appropriate that there were two narrators, since there were two timelines to the story.

Folk horror

Would you listen to Those Who Went Remain There Still again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to this again. It's a terrific horror story!

Who was your favorite character and why?

John Coy. I think he was one of the more fleshed out characters, as well as one of the narrators. I also liked the character of Granny Gayle; she kinda reminded me of Ma Kettle, but she did almost boarder on being a stereotype.

What about Marc Vietor and Eric Michael Summerer ’s performance did you like?

Many of the characters were similar, especially since many of them came from the same family, from the same part of the Kentucky backwoods. It would have been very easy for all of these characters to sound the same, but the voice actors differentiated between these characters quite clearly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, I didn't laugh or cry. I did talk to the characters somewhat, but I tend to do that during horror stories, because I care about the characters.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book very much. It rattles along at a good pace, and ends, I think, much too quickly. And I was thoroughly creeped out. Be forewarned: I am fairly easily creeped out if the story is good. If the story or writing is bad, I'll drop out of a book in a heartbeat. This one kept my interest so well I listened to it at home on a Saturday, instead of during my long commute.
