Black House - Stephen King,Peter Straub

From page one, through to the final sentence, this book had me Hooked!

Jack sawyer is now a man, and a sexy one at that.

"Black House" is the second collaboration between King and Straub, and is the sequel to their first novel, "The Talisman".
If you've read Talisman and if you're one of King's Constant Readers  Black House answers lots of questions like what happened next to the Talisman's characters? who or what is the Crimson King? and it also, Tantalisingly raises lots of new ones, primarily relating to King's Dark Tower series!

However, if you're new to Stephen King, don't worry Black House is also rewarding in its own right, which keeps the reader turning pages as ex-cop Jack Sawyer races to find a young boy kidnapped by a serial killer. Sawyer must fight his personal demons, work with the town's residents and challenge a few bad guys (from this world and others), if he is to save the victim (turns out there could be a lot more at stake too...)
Set in a small Winsconsin town, the novel features some superb characterisation and truly great narration from both legend authors.

As a sequel, I believe "Black House" is superior to its predecessor it's not as firmly set in the fantasy genre. the book has a great plot and fast paced storyline.  just like it's 1st one. King and Straub will have all There readers desperate for more!

The Talisman - Peter Straub,Stephen King

“Everything goes away, Jack Sawyer, like the moon. Everything comes back, like the moon.”
Stephen King, The Talisman




Wow...Just wow. I normally have a patten with book's But this book. went "Everywere" I went. i just couldn't put it down. I'm ahead of myself because i'm trying to think of a way i can review this book in the most beautiful way possible because It's just that...A Striking and memorable collaboration from two awesome authors Steven King and Peter Straub.


“Wolf! Right here and now!”


we meet jack Sawyer a 12 year old kid his father gone, his mother dying. Then he meets a stranger - and embarks on a terrifying journey. For Jack must find the Talisman, the only thing that can save his mother.


His quest takes him into the menacing Territories, a parallel world where violence, surprise and the titanic struggle between good and evil reach across a mythic landscape.


To me this wasn't so much a horror but more an epic adventure. King and Straub nailed there collaboration, In this book not only Do you meet jack and wish you had a friend like him! but you meet wolf! and speedy! and get to see what Happen's next. I have to say i was in the middle of this when i popped my book in my bag and headed to buy Black house the second installment to the talisman.


so with that said. this was An absolutely fantastic read Which will leave you with a magical tingle for years afterwards. i really hope you get to read it someday.

Thankyou Mr steven King and to you Mr Peter Straub for writing such an awesome book!
