Is horror your genre? Do you love to read a scary book late at night, wondering all the while what those odd noises are in the basement? If so, OWWL2Go has you covered. Our book selection of the day is Forsaken, by J.D. Barker. This book is part of the always-available collection — you’ll haver have to place a hold to read this book.
Here’s what it’s about: When horror author Thad McAlister began his latest novel, a tale rooted in the witch trials of centuries past, the words flowed effortlessly. The story poured forth, filling page after page with the most frightening character ever to crawl from his imagination. It was his greatest work, one that would guarantee him a position among the legends of the craft. But was it really fiction? He inadvertently opened a door, one that would soon jeopardize the lives of his family. She wants to come back. At home, his wife struggles to keep their family alive. Secretly wondering if she caused it all… a deal she made long ago. A deal with the Forsaken.
“Barker’s ambitious debut is aimed squarely at fans of classic horror. Witches, spells, miniature demons, and personal doubt give plenty to latch on to… the plot moves at a brisk pace… a promising start to a planned series.”
