Rating: 4.4 stars over 48 reviews
Description: When Henry was a child, something terrible happened in the woods behind his home, something so shocking he could only express his grief by drawing pictures of what he had witnessed. Eventually Henry's mind blocked out the bad memories, but he continued to draw, often at night by the light of the moon.
Twenty years later, Henry makes his living by painting his disturbing works of art. He loves his wife and his son and life couldn't be better... except there's something not quite right about the old stone farmhouse his family now calls home. There's something strange living in the cramped cellar, in the maze of pipes that feed the ancient steam boiler.
A winter storm is brewing and soon Henry will learn the true nature of the monster waiting for him down in the darkness. He will battle this demon and, in the process, he may discover what really happened when he was a child and why, in times of trouble, he thinks: I paint against the darkness.
But will Henry learn the truth in time to avoid the terrible fate awaiting him... or will the thing in the cellar get him and his family first?
Reviews: "Written in a style reminiscent of Stephen King, The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman takes the reader on a harrowing, suspense-building, and maddening journey into the mind and world of Henry. During the course of the ride, you will meet both adult Henry and childhood Henry as both stories, separate at first, become increasingly and seamlessly entwined as the book progresses. The Painted Darkness is a creepy, spooky, descent into madness that will have you turning the pages well into the night just as long as you remember to read with a light on."
