20961995The Well House: A man's incredible journey to save his pregnant wife from the ultimate evil. The dream is back and Ben Carson is terrified. His pregnant wife, Anne, is locked in a coma and Ben is the only person who can save her but he has no idea how to accomplish this. His dreams contain clues but they make no sense. Ben can't figure what a small white well house and black flying creatures have to do with Anne. Then he meets a mysterious woman named Thelma Grippe. What he learns from Thelma shakes him to the core, but gives him the knowledge to free Anne from the force keeping her in the coma. Once he locates the well house, Ben finds a passage to another dimension, where he searches for Anne. After a long, arduous journey, Ben faces the ultimate evil that holds Anne captive. The Well House is an exciting, unique and thoughtful story of a man's fight against unbelievable odds to save his wife. Part drama, part fantasy and part parable, The Well House is a multi-layered tale that takes you on an amazing journey, from the mountains above Boulder Colorado to the depths of the dark zone.

I love a good horror and this one hit the spot! There is a sense of dread from the first chapter that just builds as the books evolves. I knew from the beginning it would be a good vs. evil play but it was well built throughout the book. There were some times when I felt Ben was rather naive, but it played into the story. If you are looking for a horror story without a lot of gore but still want to be kept on the edge of suspense I'd pick this book up!
