Here's we go again with "Perez's Picks" where our editor Ramiro Perez discusses great new releases. Today: Michael Warriner's The Man In The Forest.
If you're looking for some paranormal horror with a unique twist, look no further than The Man In The Forest. It's a fascinating premise: Vincent, a musical prodigy, travels to Romania to upstage his concert rival once and for all. But when he gets there, witnesses the supernatural creature known as the "forest man," who imparts is deadly curse. Vincent is now on borrowed time. He's got only a few days to put on the musical performance of a lifetime. Rightfully, because the curse is always fatal within a week. Each night, he is visited by a deadly nightmare that robs him of his sleep, and gradually, his sanity. This all builds to a breathtaking climax near the end of the book that is spectacular in its description and execution.
Author Warriner tells a great story. He has an eye for scene and a dark imagination. Vincent's nightmares are deliciously twisted. What's more, Warriner paints a captivating portrait of Romania with rustic castles, cathedrals, forests, and villages.
Definitely pick this one up. It'll keep you up at night with the haunting chant of: "Run away while you still can, before you see the forest man."
