    A Clever and Delicious Story

    Magnificent read. The story exists on the land that straddles suspense, thriller, and good ol' supernatural chill-fest. The term "page-turner" has become cliched to the point of lost meaning, yet with Forsaken, we are reminded where the phrase was born: between the pages of just such a book as this. Moving the story along at a rushing river's clip, Barker braids two tales together in a dance between present and past. We begin getting the slightest feeling that the two might be more intertwined than we at first suspected, but are kept in delighted suspense until Barker lets us see. He is generous in a manner. The reader is given an omnipresent view of the world inside the covers, and this serves to build tension as we become invested in the characters, sometimes wishing to grab them by the shoulders and shake them to their good senses, other times wanting desperately to tell them what's happening just outside their line of sight. All of these ingredients are combined in a clever and delicious story, one that reads fast and fun, and with just enough darkness laying over Barker's land to make us wonder, to make us check over our shoulders one more time, to watch the shadows... they're only shadows, right?

    Horror and witches

    A copy of the epub was provide in exchange for an honest review. J. D. Barker's Forsaken is a fast paced horror. Barker has woven the historical Salem witch trials into the world of Thad McAlister. Thad is researching and writing a novel based on the famous trials. His home life is invaded by his research. The descriptions are scary and filled unexpected events. Fans of horror and witches will enjoy this read.

    Good story

    Quick read, well written, will read the next installment, even though this one ended in a serious cliff hanger...not my favorite.

    Not Great

    I couldn't get into this story. A lot of characters to keep track of. Good ideas but didn't come together for me.
