YOU’RE LIVING THE DREAM...A beautiful house, a loving wife. Two kids, a dog, and a tenure track professorship teaching art at the local university. Your name is Daniel Rineheart. You’ve got it all....BUT ALL DREAMS MUST END.For this autumn heralds the arrival of a mysterious painting. No name. No date. No signature or frame. A disturbing work of grotesque perfection: two children with cruel eyes, a window onto an endless field, and a dying tree on top of a hill.A work of art... that changes with each viewing.SO BEGINS THE NIGHTMARE......Where wretched children crawl from a canvas prison to stalk the quiet halls of this happy home....Where painted clocks tick-tock away in the dark hours before dawn, and a missing dog whimpers from between the walls....Where all answers lead to a dark artist and an impossible creation, a cursed canvas with a twisted past......AND A HORROR THAT WILL DEVOUR ALL.Curl up, if you dare, with a dark novel readers are calling: “Beautifully written” — “A Must Read!” — “Stunning” — “The Scariest book EVER!” FORSKEN is an intelligent blend of ghost story, suburban supernatural thriller, haunted house, and mystery. Perfectly written for fans of early Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Peter Straub, it’s a terrifying tale of secrets and lies, of nightmares made flesh; where the scariest stories are the ones that coldly whisper into your ear until madness and death are a welcome rest.Lock your door.
Turn on the lights.

It was creepy enough to give you the heebie jeebies and anything to do with strange looking paintings and children always make things more creepier than they should be. (The Shining, anyone?) I can’t really say I like Daniel as a character. He had i...

3.0 Forsaken: A Novel of Art, Evil and Insanity
Big brothers can be a pain in the ass sometimes. I ought to know; I am one. As a boy, I had spurts of tormenting my little sister, but at least I never locked her in a trunk until she had a nervous breakdown, which is precisely how this novel begins with young Daniel tricked by his older brother, Da...

3.0 Forsaken: A Novel of Art, Evil and Insanity
I am not a Stephen King fan so this book was off genre for me. Irrespective of that, I do think the writer has talent. The characters were interesting and the plot was fleshed out fairly well. The book had some editorial issues that made it hard for me to follow an already difficult story line.I ...
