Nick's Picks on WBAA


Often, what makes a great horror novel is the notion that the characters and situations are easily perceived as possible. An unseen, lurking evil that seems to exist only for you - that is a fear we all can relate to when we find ourselves in a place alone.  The Sorrows bring those fears to life with characters temporarily residing on an abandoned island for musical inspiration. The building suspense throughout the novel grips readers, as Johnathan Janz makes his writing debut. WL Library Director Nick Schenkel has this review.                                                                the sorrows
