Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ "Excellent characters, brilliant suspense, incredible action."
★★★★★ "Stark brought his own unique flair to the zombie genre with the Stage 3 series, and he doesn't disappoint with Arcadia Falls. He creates
a threat straight out of your worst nightmares. It's more than just nightmare creatures, though. It's also the effect they have on the community they're terrorizing. Such a horrific idea and Stark executes it so well."
★★★★★ "Twists and turns show that author
Ken Stark is at the top of his game in this genre."
★★★★★ "What a great read, a real page- turner from beginning to end. Think you're too old to get the bejeesus scared out of you? Think again.
This author knows how to create terror. It leaks from the pages and seeps into your subconscious."
★★★★★ "Stark's writing is superb, and his descriptions
bring the tale to vivid life both visually and emotionally, allowing the reader to truly experience the story while reading."
★★★★★ "Stark does a wonderful job of delivering his story in a fun, yet chilling fashion. His use of words is powerful and
able to produce vivid imagery throughout the pages.  Such talent is mandatory in a novel of this nature."
★★★★★ "The big action is all
Stark bombastic and hard charging, as we would expect from this author."
★★★★★ "... his imagination is clearly well-versed in
what makes us shy away from dark corners and shadows in the night, and that can't be bad. He's also very funny, which is nice to find in a horror writer."
★★★★★ "The characters could live next-door. The plot is unique. The story is
★★★★★ "Ken Stark provides a chilling page-turner as a group of high school students are sucked into the mystery of Arcadia Falls. People are disappearing, but
Stark adds a bizarre twist. Not only do they disappear, but all memories of the victims are erased in the minds of family members and friends. It's as if they never existed."
★★★★★ Just
don't turn off the lights with this one as Stark brings new meaning to the line from an old Scottish poem, "things that go bump in the night."
★★★★★ "This a horror novel of the Stephen King variety - one that gives us fully rounded characters along with a fully rounded monster. Ken Stark has a
knack for churning out scary stuff and a way of writing for young people that eludes many authors."

From the Author

This book is the result of a special request from a younger reader who asked me to write 'something scary, with a monster, and some kind of mystery'. So while Arcadia Falls is designed to scare the snot out of every reader, I kept the harsh language to a minimum in consideration of this diminutive muse.      Of course I appreciate any and all reviews, good or bad, but I respectfully request that your review not contain any spoilers that might deprive new readers of discovering the true nature of the 'monster' for themselves. I thank you most sincerely, and I truly hope that you enjoy the nightmare....

Multi-award-winning horror writer Ken Stark was born in Saskatchewan, but has called Vancouver home for most of his life. He was raised on a steady diet of science fiction and disaster movies, so it seems right that his first published book series be about the zombie apocalypse. In his spare time, Ken tries to paint like Bob Ross and play poker like Doyle Brunson, but results suggest that he might have got it all backwards.
