This review is from: The Painted Darkness (Kindle Edition)
Written in a style reminiscent of Stephen King, The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman takes the reader on a harrowing, suspense-building, and maddening journey into the mind and world of Henry. During the course of the ride, you will meet both adult Henry and childhood Henry as both stories, separate at first, become increasingly and seamlessly entwined as the book progresses.
Henry paints against the darkness. He doesn't know why and he has no recollection of the terrible and horrific events that happened during his childhood that led to his obsession. After an argument with his wife leaves him alone in the middle of a violent winter storm, Henry must face the monsters from his childhood that have seemingly and impossibly found their way into his cellar if he is to survive.
The Painted Darkness is a creepy, spooky, descent into madness that will have you turning the pages well into the night just as long as you remember to read with a light on.
