Summary

The black forest. A place of legend and folklore. A place where the souls of the dead never rest.

A group of paranormal researchers head to the isolated forest with the hopes of capturing something that has evaded them their whole careers: proof of life after death. 

The forest soon promises to deliver an investigation beyond what they could have ever hoped for. But things take a turn for the sinister when one of the group disappears in the dead of the night. 

Ghostly apparitions, disembodied voices, and demonic things lurking in the darkness turn the adventure into a living nightmare. Will any of them escape with their lives, or will they all pay for not taking heed of the local legend? 

And at the heart of it all, the evil Mother Sibbett waits, ready to show them what the afterlife really holds. 

A supernatural horror novel that will resonate with fans of The Blair Witch Project and The Ritual. After listening to this terrifying story, you will never go down to the woods again….

My Review

4/5 Stars

When Ken and his paranormal research group stumble across the idea for the Black Forest, they think it’s too golden of an opportunity to pass up. On their first night, while trying to record some hype to post to the internet, they are warned away. They laugh it off and go anyway. It isn’t long before they start to hear voices and feel as if something evil is nearby. At first they’re elated at the prospect of being able to prove the existence of paranormal entities. So much so that they decide to stay against their urge to turn around and go home. When one member of their group goes missing, the trip goes downhill as each of the remaining members are faced with their own version of the evil.

This book definitely had a Blair Witch vibe. There is a lot of evil tearing the group apart, and in Roberta’s case, turning them against once another. This will be a favorite for those who enjoy classic chillers.

Narration was done well.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
