Review: The Forest

The Forest


by Michaelbrent Collings

Three kids went in.
Now, twenty years later, the two survivors are going back…

For Tricia and Alex, the idea is simple: find and rescue their friend, Sam, from his insane mother.

But when they enter the forest, they discover that their idea is anything but simple.

Because this forest isn’t like any other. In this forest, a silver mist hangs. In this forest, a simple trip of a few miles can turn into a nightmare.

In this forest, the monsters are real.

Twenty years later, Tricia and Alex remember nothing of what happened that day they lost their friend. They know only that three kids went in, but only two came out.

Now, they are going back. To find their lost memories. To discover what happened to Sam that day.

To encounter fear itself.

The forest, as Alex and Tricia will discover, is a place where madness reigns. A place where a simple path becomes an ordeal. A place where the past comes to life, and the future is anything but certain.

Because the dead don’t stay dead… in The Forest.



5 out of 5

The Forest is not a book you read with the lights off. I love horror. I’m a bit of a horror junkie. I love the woods. I love hiking in them. I’m never going near the woods when it’s foggy for the rest of my life. As I write this it’s just after midnight and my house is lit up like a birthday cake. Every light is on. You can absolutely feel the terror oozing off the pages as you follow Alex and Tricia on their horrifying journey from past to present.
